the 6th generation 160GB version
>yfw they discontinued them because they were forged by Gods to last a millenia and profits where down
Was just a couple years ahead of its time. Shame we'll never see such a sleek design again.
This people like the 6th gen because thats what was around the longest. But 7th gen didn't exist. iPod Mini has a great DAC and easy installation of a CF card with no extra hardware required.
It was a diamond in the rough.
>that hi res display
>easy to haul and swap batteries
nothing gives me the discontinued sad feels like this
This baby right here. 320ppi 3 years before the iPhone 4 and a real keyboard.
Wanted this so badly back in the day.
Not really God tier, but netbooks... I liked netbooks. I used the shit out of my netbook.
I got it still running like the day I got it.
>I was a child/poor in the 90's and early 00's and thus do not understand the point of a PDA
STILL one of the most comfortable keyboards I have used on a phone.
Everyone complained windows mobile was garbage, but I had nothing but fun on this phone.
That keyboard too.
I would remote into my desktop at home for extra awesome.
if that phone was wrong, I don't want to be right.
>someone else posted it
>I thought I was the only one who liked it
Windows mobile could sometimes be painful, but I'm convinced this device was the best winmo experience. I loved it.
shit, I was going to post a zip drive
I still think USB thumb drives are bullshit and a thin magnetic medium like that was the way to go.
if only it didn't have the click of death, the world would be a better place.
I disagree. I have one and the keys require a pretty large amount of actuation force, or the domes are just degraded badly on mine.
I like the Jornada ones a lot better even if the keys are smaller.
Companies producing alternative computing devices. Exhibit 1: DEC and their Alpha. We had 64-bit computing when the slow companies were stuck in 8-bit. Guess who's still in business, those who stayed in the slow lane of technology.
One of the first phones to push the boundaries of modern consumer mobile devices
49s and 50s just aren't quite the same.
Haven't tried a Prime yet, kinda curious though.
superior form factor and GOAT flip display incoming
seriously how do patents work.. do they expire or what because the sidekick flipping magic could not be bested. you'd think itd be fragile but the later models had refined it such that it would just swivel away from any kinda damage.
my pocket device erection probably couldnt get much harder omg
Oh man, those Sony Ericsson phones were god-tier, probably the most god-tier dumb phones....I had a W810i which wasnt even the best one they made. Bluetooth, IR, FULL SIZE Memory stick, 2Mpix Camera with dedicated button and autofocus. I flashed the Sony factory firmware on it, which got rid of the Cingular bloat and allowed you to even rice it a bit through Flash-lite Themes. Oh and it had a 1500mah battery, which when it was new would go for up to 2 fucking weeks depending on how much you talked. You had to actually try to kill the battery in less than week.
You want a fucking god tier terminal? have a fucking god-tier terminal.
Complete with a model M.
I've got a legacy chance too, and it really is god-tier. However, they still make the chance so I dunno if we can really call it discontinued.
