Mine started when I got the Palm Treo 700wx, and from then on I was hooked.

No.... History has already been this route. Phones have already been too small and the fad now is larger more handy device. A larger device allows for a larger screen and keyboard(if availible).

Like I said, we're no longer waiting for devices to become really small, it's already happen. Small is not usable.

Now it's about price/function(s)/screen/speed.

Re: What phone started your love afair with PPCs?

I was ready back when HP Jornada was out before phones even existed. My first PPC Phone was a TMobile Audiovox 6###. I was pretty good back then and I have never deviated from the PPC (win mo) line. So I have always had the CE products. Although I really like the touch pro 2, I think that the carriers are really hindering these devices, unfortunately and they will never be able to touch their true potential until they start making a commitment to designing the appropriate software layers, until that happens flashing is needed.

Re: What phone started your love afair with PPCs?

I would have to say that it was not a phone that got me hooked on PPCs. I started with a Dell Axim X30 and then move to an Axim x50v and then x51v. I really fought against going to an all in one device because I didn't want to give up the large VGA screen, but I caved and got the 6700 while I worked at Sprint. From there I wrestled with multiple phones (700wx, Mogul, Touch Pro), but I was never really happy or felt like I got the best of both worlds until my Touch Pro2 arrived. Finally a phone with a large, beautiful screen and it's WVGA, a step above what I had with the X51v.

Re: What phone started your love afair with PPCs?

I really wanted a Hitachi G1000, but at the time I was issued a 6601 (Seen in my signature.) by my company due to restrictions on cameras.

Re: What phone started your love afair with PPCs?

For me it was the the IPAQ 3630 back in 2000...Had just worked a ton of overtime and it was burning a whole in my pocket. My first converged device was the Samsung I-700...Never thought the US Carriers would finally get their arse's in gear and catch up with the rest of the whole and start offering the HTC lines. Thank goodness they did. I love this phone!

Re: What phone started your love afair with PPCs?

It started for me with the 6600, and if they had released the EVDO update I'd probably still be using it! But they didn't, so I went 6600, 6700, 700wx, 6800, Diamond, TP2. I still look for a cheap 6600, just for sentimental values and as a back up.

Re: What phone started your love afair with PPCs?

XV6700 for me. Still have it as a backup. My daughter uses it & a 4gb card as a mp3 player & gaming device. Using it actually made me get the TP2 instead of waiting for the Omnia2. I'd been using the Omnia since December & it died. I used my trusty 6700 for a few days waiting for the replacement Omnia from VZW. Didn't realize how much I missed the keyboard.
