    In my mind, there are three phones that have had truly goundbreaking (sexy) design. I'm somewhat of a phone nut. I spend more time on tech sites like WPCentral, CNET and Engadget than any sane person would, so I have given this quite a bit of thought.

    My first was the original Motorola Razr. It was so thin and "high tech looking" and so different from every other flip phone on the market... it really changed phone design from the moment it was created until the iPhone. I lusted for this phone.

    My second was the iPhone 4. What made the first few iPhones great was iTunes (and fanboys talking them up). The iPhone 4 was different. It was so darn cool and modern looking... it was the perfect metal and glass design. No one has come close to making an all touch screen device so classy and lust-worthy. I hated that I loved it, because I have some sort of illogical intrinsic dislike of Apple.

    The only other phone design that has made me LUST for a phone is the Nokia N9/Lumia 800/900/920. The moment I saw a Cyan Lumia I knew I wanted one. I was completely dismissive of the WP platform until I saw the Lumia 900. From that moment on, I started frequenting this website and other WP sites. I am going to buy a WP8 device as soon as they come out, as I have come to appreciate the platform. It's too bad that I will never own one, as I will not leave T-mobile.

    Anyways... Those are my thoughts. I would love to hear if anyone else has similar opinions.

    Only N8 and Lumia 920. N8 was the phone that sucked me into this kinda smartphone geekyness that I would even visit a forum like this. Between that and the Lumia 920 no phone out there offered enough while being huge tradeoffs compared to the N8. Lumia 920 still trades away a lot I love, but at least it also brings a lot to the table.

    The first phone I really really wanted was the first iPhone because I thought it was neat to have a decent browser and everything just worked on it well. After that it was the iPhone 4 which I in fact still own.

    I'm not sure I understand you closing sentences here. The 810 will be on T-Mobile on Nov 14th. It has the same design as the Nokia N9/Lumia 800/900/920.

    The first phone I truly lusted after was the samsung d500. In the US at the time, there was nothing like it. I had to purchase from plemix.com and have it shipped from overseas, and I think the total cost with shipping was $800+ (this was about 10 years ago) but damn was it worth it!

    OG Droid. Coming off an old iPhone original, I just never got that excited about iOS. The Droid and all it's customization was a breath of fresh air. That is until I started loading apps and the thing slowed down to a crawl due to the lack of decent memory management.

    I never lusted or develop mobile love for any phone until WP7 the mobile OS appeared on the scene 2+ years ago. Not even the original iPhone 3 moved me even though I thought it was revolutionary & impressive in 2007. When WP7 was launched, I get myself a HTC Trophy not because I love the phone but more for my love-at-first-sight crush on the refreshing & groundbreaking WP7 UI.
    Now, my WP7 love has blossomed into a insatiable LUST for the sexy WP8 & the sensual Lumia 920.
    So that's my little secret fetish of a mobile love affair :D

    The Sony-Ericsson P800 (I bought it the day I saw it, the only time I've ever done that for a phone)
    The Sony-Ericsson P910i (OMG was that sexy for its day)
    The Palm Pre & Palm Pre 2 (both gorgeous form factors perfect for the hand)
    The Palm LifeDrive with Phone Module (never released, alas)
    Lumia 800 (I had one and it was gorgeous. Underpowered and never mass-distributed in the US, but SO much nicer than the 900)
    HTC 8X in blue

    Nokia N900 - If this device were released again in a form factor with a larger screen and modern internals, I think I'd died and gone to heaven. I've never really wanted a device as badly as the N900. It really was groundbreaking in many ways.

    If a Galaxy Note II type device came to the WP8 platform with the Wacom digitizer... that might set me off again.

    I really like the Lumia 900/920 design, though I think the ATIV S would be quite "sexy" too if it simply dropped the physical home button for a capacitive one.
