It's a slow Friday morning so I thought I would ask the question: How did you get to your N1? I started off this whole crazy with a Motorola beeper. I remember paging people with numberical code (my beeper at the time only did numbers) so hello nexus users would be: 43550 63987 87377. My beeper looked similar to this but with a smaller screen (it's hard to find pictures of old technology): I then moved to an Audiovox that for the life of me I couldn't find a picture of it. It was a big phone with a pull up antenna. It worked well and I got good reception. I think I paid $40 on contract for it. After the Audiovox came the Nextel crazy when I was in high school. Everyone had one which made it a good decision to get since you could 2-way all your friends: i90 i730 Then came the i860 which was a big deal because it had the front color screen, which didn't do much, but was awesome: After this the novelty of the nextel was starting to wear off and I was really looking to get something new. On a trip I ment someone from England who had a Sony Ericsson phone and I really like it, the build quality was very high, you could add music to it, it was pretty awesome, so I jumped off the nextel bandwagon and signed up with Cingular (which a few months later was taken over by At&t) and purchased an w810i: It had a really nice camera with flash, took excellent movies, and was nice and light. That phone served me really well and after two years when my contract up I was ready to move up to the smart phone arena and picked up an iPhone 3G. I waited 3 hours in line for one about a month after the phone was released: And now I have my N1. It's funny seeing and remembering all the technology I went through to get here. I remember when I got the nextels and they were the latest and greatest. I would show it off just like I show off the N1 now. If I had to list my favorite three it would be in this order: 1. N1 2. w810 3. iPhone 3g The N1 sits at the top not only because it's the top of the line technology but I also thinks its one of the most innovated phones I have purchased. How did the rest of you guys get to this point?
