    My first was some crappy electronic organizer in the early 90s hand-me-down from dad he probably got at Sharper Image, likely a Sharp or Casio.

    Then a hand-me-down from him much later of a palm which I never saw the appeal. Fast forward to 2004 and I got a Treo 650 and I was hooked.

    But for some oldskool cred, back in the early 80s I has a Texas Instruments 99-4A personal computer complete with casette tape drive for which I wrote crude games in BASIC such as "Commie Hunt" where you hunted a stick figure guy on screen who would insult you randomly with speech synth along the lines of "**** face!' when you missed. The computer had 16k of memory IIRC.

    Handspring Treo 180, got it on the first day of release back in 2002. I still miss that little handspringing icon that appeared when you switch the phone app on.

    Comparison of Handspring vs Palm support/repairs

    Treo 180 failed, support upgraded me free of charge to a Treo 300. Took a little more than a week all in.

    Centro failed, two months and counting. Havent seen the replacement unit although it was 3 weeks since I was told to get one.

    I'm a graduate of the Franklin Planner. Then to the Palm Pilot.
    Occaisionally, I see some FP's around and can't imagine going back to that.

    Sorry, off course I meant the 270. The one that had color display. I blame the current frustration I have towards Palm, im trying to forget about the problem but its not easy when they do nothing it all to sort it out.

    My first true pda/smart device (yeah I had the casio calculator watch but not counting that one), was the Palm III. For those interested, here's a blurb about it that I copied off of Wikipedia:

    Palm III had an IR port, backlight, and flash memory. The latter allowed to upgrade Palm OS, or, with some external applications, to store programs or data in flash memory. It ran on two standard AAA batteries. It was able to retain enough energy for 10-15 minutes to prevent data erasure during battery replacement. It had 2 Megabytes of memory, large at the time, and used Palm OS 3.

    I was fairly late to join the smartphone revolution with a Treo 700wx. It completely changed my life. I use/used it to connect to my company's exchange server and I'd be completely lost without it. Honestly, I walk into the Sprint store and wonder why anyone would buy a non-smartphone? My life is completely organized by the my exchange calendar!

    I've gone from the 700wx to the 800w and now the Pro.

    This is my PDA/Smartphone history.

    Palm V => Palm Zire 31 => Palm Tungsten E => Palm 700WX => Sprint Touch

    Hopefully my next smartphone will be the Diamond 2 from Sprint.

    The Pre just does not have the features and software I need.

    After reading about it for the first time in Popular Science I was checking the local papers daily and monthly tech magazines to learn more about it and find out when it would actually become available. I was desperate for something like this back then and had the anticipation jimmies bad. There was no information online through my ISP back then - Prodigy @ 1200 baud. None that I could find anyway.

    Then I upgraded to this one which had a backlight !

    Eventually I was jammin' with the big daddy - I had a pretty large investment over several years but eventually it all came to a very abrupt ending and I was left holding the bag with no upgrade path in terms of capabilities and features.

    Never touched another product from those guys. Nah, I'm not bitter.

    If you count non-phones, I guess it would be a Palm IIIx. My first smartphone was the Treo 600.

    Mine was a Sony Clie PEG-N610C w/ PalmOS 5.0 - liked it, but actually found I did better with pen & paper organizers.

    I stayed away from PDA type devices for a while after that. I guess the next one is kind of a stretch, but I purchased an 1st Gen iPod Touch. Wasn't really a 'smart device' until the iPhone OS 2.0 came out. I pretty much carried that and my Moto SLVR L7C. Still didn't really use it for memos, calendaring, etc. but I used it for e-mail, web and games.

    The Pre will be my first foray into Smart Phones and with it, I'm attempting to see if I can't start using the PIM stuff more than pen & paper. With everything being in the "cloud" I think it may be more effective for me. I think the main reason I was so bad with the PDA is that I hated putting in calendar appointments via the Palm Desktop and/or the device itself. Now that it is all automagic, I may use it more.
