    Ohhh I had so many of those devices. Motorola MPX200, MPX220, Cingular 8125 (HTC Wizard), Cingular 8515 I think (TyTN), ATT Tilt (TyTN II Kaiser), and an HTC Touch Pro 2. Man that Touch Pro 2 was the absolute king of physical keyboards. I would gladly pay an extra $100 to get that thing frankensteined onto my Lumia 920. If HTC released an 8 Pro with global GSM and LTE in the US I just might leave Nokia (since they refuse to make physical high end Lumias with keyboards).

    I had the MPX200, 220, then the HTC "Star Trek". Great phones for their time!

    I just found my HTC touch diamond in a drawer yesterday, and connected it to a charger. Booted up like a champ, and even loaded WPC. If I could get that functionality with modern hardware and a streamlined interface, I'd be a happy man.

    File Management! We need that back... heck, Microsoft should consider bringing the capabilities/options available in Windows RT to Windows Phone, that would be awesome.

    For some reason I never considered Windows Mobile. I used Symbian and BlackBerry during Windows Mobile's heyday.

    My only recollection of Windows Mobile is the Samsung Jack commercial with Ozzy Osbourne.

    This is one of those that I owned. Versions 1 and 2.

    It was released exclusively in the Philippines by Smart Communications as the Smart Amazing Phone. I called it 'Not so Smart, not so Amazing phone.'

    I had those too (from Orange) and many other, later variants of it. Personally I loved them ;-)

    Look, I found this picture in the internet:

    Except of the last one I owned all of them. And also the C550 with dedicated music buttons.

    All those smaller phones accepting full size SD and regular SIM cards. Yet the Lumia 1520 had to move to nanosim. Ah well it was done for progress I'm sure. I still wish we had some phones with the hardware keyboard like the Touch Pro 2 coming out in WP land.

    I was a proud owner of a Samsung Omnia II with Windows Mobile 6.5. Touch Wiz suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucked! SBP Mobile shell was a savior. It had a 5mp camera and panoramic shot a good year before the iphone did. Free wifi tethering when Verizon was still unlimited data was awesome. MicroSDcard filled with music and a movie or two. Towards the end of my contract I eventually flashed an iPhone like shell on to it for simplicity sake and to deliberately show off its capabilities with iPhone users. Most of them couldn't understand why THEIR iPhone couldn't do those things.

    I had a HTC P3300 ( Artemis ), i loved it..........but it wasnt BUT proof.
    I sat on it :-/
    With a tweak cabfile you could even have a bigger microSD in it ( normal 2 GB, with the tweak 8 GB ).
    That was only six or seven years ago
    Think of what it has become and what it will be over the same period of time.

    Had a Cingular 8525... My first smartphone (had Nokias and Startacs before that). Thick beast!! I kinda miss it... It was a powerhouse in its day. MicroSD card slot, stylus, clickable thumb wheel, camera button, backlit keyboard, wifi, notification LEDs, email and browser quick keys... Other than being a brick it was awesome. If only MS had seen the iPhone revolution coming and adapted right away instead of fighting it...

    Found my Omnia II and charged it up. Fell in love with it all over again. If it just had more ram and a better cpu... In my later days with it, I flashed an iphone-like layout to minimize ram usage and complexity. It was better than SBP mobile shell and a night and day difference from touchwiz. IT asked me if I wanted to activate it. I was tempted...

    What was soooooo funny at the time was when friends would ask me why THEIR iPhones took crappier pictures, couldnt do panorama or actions shots, couldnt tether data, had crappy reception, didnt come with a built in stylus, had crappier speakers (WOW HD sound was ridiculous on this device), had a smaller non-amoled screen...etc...

    I nearly forgot about one of my favorite features of WM; very simple USB tethering. There was an app in the Marketplace called Internet Sharing or Internet Connection Sharing (IIRC). I would activate the app and plug the USB cable into a PC. Like magic, the PC was online! I didn't have to do a single thing to the computer, except I believe the device drivers had to be installed. There was no installing tethering software or turning anything on. It really was that simple.

    Plus cell companies were charging for tethering back then. WM was the original Android in that the open source community created apps that worked around that. I think I used Wifi Tether or something. Worked like a charm. It was great since data was unlimited too.

    Yes it was, but it was also slow. I remember being elated when Verizon upgraded from 1x to EVDO! A continuous connection might have gotten you a gig or two a month...

    I had a Palm Treo Pro too. Great phone. I got really good at tapping with my thumbnail so I didn't have to use the stylus. Even the smallest UI elements were a cinch after a while, and it allowed you to put so much more stuff on the screen compared to today's fat-finger interfaces. And God, do I miss having a D-pad...

    One thing I really miss is the physical call and end buttons for the phone. It really made a smartphone feel like a phone instead of a little computer with phone capabilities.

    Moto Q9C. Non-touch, but the key/scroll nav worked pretty well.

    And that Metallic Lime Green! Ahead of its time......

    Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 is a good windows mobile phone. The keyboard is excellent as it has most of the features of a PC. Control+A highlights a doc; control +c copies; control+v pastes; control+x cuts etc. The predictive text feature is excellent. In fact, I was a little bit disappointed when windows phone 7 came without most of the excellent features of its supposed predecessor. And despite all the noise about its being the what Microsoft was all along planning for out was jettisoned in a little over a year after it's debut. It was actually a terrible mistake that eroded the confidence of a number of Microsoft's phone about the reliably of the platform. Gladly, Microsoft has now fulfilled it's promise of upgrading windows phone 8 to windows phone 8.1. This indeed was a confidence building strategy. It's only hoped that the company would relentlessly continue to work towards making windows phone a dream phone.

    My last WM phone is the Samsung i907 and is still working... back then Samsung was kind of cool for me, before the flood of Galaxy series. The phone came with WM 6.1 but i was able to install WM 6.5

    wp_20140618_005.jpg

    I installed a icon based menu, the original WM menu was uncomfortable for me.

    Pros: Very sturdy phone like a brick, good battery life, call quality good, micro SD slot. Ok performance.

    Cons: The resistive screen is almost useless even with the pen, the WiFi range was mediocre, kind of ugly design. The camera barely usable.
