Telecom the name is going away for mobile users tomorrow, time to reflect.  Post a photo of the Telecom mobile you remember most fondly!

Mine was the Treo 650!

The year was 2005, Full Qwerty, full MicroSD card, 320x320 pixel screen and PalmOS...Don't forget threaded SMS!!!!!!!!

Was such a cool device...



Bonus points for whoever posts a photo of the orginal device!

I loved my Kyocera Slider. Not that it had any particularly impressive features, but the novelty factor was great!

I was going to post this as my least favourite device!! I owned this one as well, the form factor was so cool and it had a fairly colourful & pixel dense screen for those days (the time of 4096 colour Nokia, I think this may have been close to the coveted 65K).

 

Buttons were no good though!

Actually I had completely forgotten about that problem until you mentioned it. It's funny how cool visual stuff sticks in your memory while practical stuff is quickly forgotten!

Nokia 3200. Could change the skin under the case with a bit of paper which you could print online. Loved that phone to bits. And it had a camera!

Actually, I think that phone was a Nokia 3205 (the CDMA variant) :) I had one too.

I remember the LG GR500F the most because I still use it. It's over 3 years old and the battery is going, but otherwise it's in good shape.

Back in the day I loved my Sanyo 7400.. they don't make em like they used to. Mine kept going strong for years, despite several knocks and bumps along the way. battery used to last a week.. Was cool to flip the phone ala star trek communicator stylee. And.. who can forget Push To Talk. Lol.

Ah completely right :D
The 3200 was the GSM one but I couldn't only remember the 32 part.
Good eye.

Push to Talk was a nice idea, but had a very limited market.

This was my most memorable CDMA phone. The buttons were massive, the call quality was great, and it was nice and small.

Don't forget the Okta Touch; "one of the best smartphones" at the time :)
