My interest in the mobile segment started many years ago as I realized early on the impact a powerful handheld gadget could have on our lives. I really have been using mobile devices since they weighed 30 pounds. Over the years I have owned or tested hundreds if not thousands of handheld devices for my coverage, and a few of them have been so far ahead of their time that they made a lasting impression on me in my work, and had an impact on the mobile devices yet to come.
The best way to share these gadgets is through a photo tour of them. Each of these gadgets had an affect on the mobile space for different reasons, and is worth a trip down memory lane to remember them. It is surprising how many of these gadgets, while hitting the scene years ago, still have attributes that make them competitive with the mobile device of today.
