I was watching TV shows and movies in the subway before it was cool.

That HP iPAQ 4700 is a PDA, not a smartphone. And PDAs were always in the 3" to 4" screen size range.

You're kiddding right? I bough a Palm Visor in 2000, and Treo 90 in 2002. Those were ahead of their time.

Neither can play divx videos... 160x160 screen on the Treo is a joke compare to the 4" VGA screen on the iPaq. Also, 33mhz vs 624mhz CPU.

I went from a Palm m100 to an HP Jornada (before they bought compaq) back to a Palm M500, and then a Palm Tungsten T3. I still have the T3, but cant find my charger, I wish I could just for nostalgia sake. Maybe take it to work. :D

Now I have an iPhone 5.

Don't be jealous, you brought up the whole 4" screen thing, he just countered with how behind the times you were, 8 years ago.

2004 I think? 320x240, 128mb ram, 480mhz? Naturally when the iPhone came out I wasn't particularly blown away. Not a stab at Apple, but it had already been done many times before that phone hit the market.

And then there was this;

Fond memories.. I'd buy another Sony P-series in a heartbeat, esp if it was running JB. :-0

No, you're not entitled to your own opinion, you're only entitled to what you can argue for.
Otherwise, don't start.
