My history in gadgets…

As a geek, I’ve always been quite the gadget freak. The fact that my father was also interested in the newest toys didn’t help.

A quick list of my gadgets and phones over the years:

PDA history:

Psion Siena
Psion Siena

This I got as a gift, from my father. Used it a lot, but outgrew it rather quickly.

Psion Series 3c
Psion 3c

I’ve used this device though the majority of my school years, as a note-taker, game device, development device (I actually wrote code on that thing…). Used to also have several Flash SSD’s for it.

Palm m500

This PDA was the first one I bought after starting working. Used it to death. (not really, sold it)

Psion Series 5
Psion Series 5

This I got from a coworker, who didn’t use it anymore since it no longer charged. I replaced the batteries, and sold it on, feeling that Psion’s OS no longer appealed to me.

Palm Tungsten T3

As an upgrade for the m500, I got myself the T3. Quite a powerful machine for the time.

Palm T|X

This was the last Palm device I owned, which I sold some years back.

Mobile phone history:

Ericsson GA-318
Ericsson GA-318

First phone. Came with three replaceable colour covers. Sold it to a friend in the end.

Ericsson SH-888
Ericsson SH-888

This one I stupidly forgot on a train (when I was in a rush…)

Philips Savvy DB
Philips Savvy DB

This one I got from my parents as a replacement for the SH-888 I lost. Stayed with me for quite some time.

Ericsson T28 World
Ericsson T28 World

My first flip-phone, which I bought after starting working. Stayed with me until the hinge system broke, causing the phone to shutdown when opening the flip.

Sony CMD-J70
Sony CMD-J70

Bought as a replacement, but returned rather quickly (the next day), completely crappy design and non-intuitive use. The knob (command wheel) on the left was also a total fail.

Nokia 3510i
Nokia 3510i

My first foray into the Nokia world of phones. Nifty phone, worked quite nicely.

Nokia 6100
Nokia 6100

Replaced the Nokia 3510i, since I wanted something with a bit more memory (for SMS’).

Motorola RAZR V3
Motorola RAZR V3

The first Motorola phone I bought, which, in retrospect, wasn’t a really well thought through purchase. The Motorola OS on these devices sucks. I still have it, the hinge sometimes fails (keyboard doesn’t react), but sturdy as a rock (once dropped it three floors…).
The only plus points for this phone are that it looks damn good, and that it got me into the modding scene, as the Motorola OS was quite modifiable (flexing, anyone? :P)

Sagem MyX3-2
Sagem MyX3-2

This phone was purchased as part of a Vodaphone.es kit, since I had gotten to know my spanish girlfriend, and using a Spanish SIM in Belgium was cheaper for her to send me SMS’.
(it is possibly the worst phone I’ve ever used.)

Nokia E65
Nokia E65

My first Smartphone (damn that sounds cheesy…). Still have it, use it as my work phone.

HTC Hero
HTC Hero

My first foray into the Android world, as my E65 was starting to show its age. Perhaps purchased a bit too early. Got me into Android modding and flashing.

HTC Desire
HTC Desire

This phone is my current phone, works wonders with the 3rd party ROMS you can find for it.

Tablet History:
Asus Eee-Pad Transformer TF101

The only tablet I’ve gotten sofar ;)
