    Treo 180g in 2002, swapped it for a keyboard version 180 as it was so much faster typing on a proper keyboard than having to use the stylus.

    I have never seen anyone with a Treo 180g. It has to be a rare handset to still have up and running.

    If you could post a couple of pics I would love to see the old war horse. Thanks

    I actually bought a Newton late in it's life (1994) after the price had dropped based on the enthusiastic recommendation of a friend who used one. I never used it "for real", however. The text recognition was awful, and it insisted on making every "L" into the English Pound symbol (I'm sure there is a way to make that on my keyboard but I don't know how). I'd have been delighted to simply eliminate the English Pound from its vocabulary, but from what I could find out, that wasn't an option. It also had the wrong form factor, too big to carry in a pocket (or even on a belt pouch without looking like a dweeb), so I never used the thing at work. Funny, till I saw someone mention the Newton early in this thread, I hadn't even thought of it as a PDA or a brethren to my various Palm devices!

    First device I used was a Palm V, and it was totally awesome. It contained an amazing two whole megabytes of memory, which was far more than anyone truly needed and really was considered impressive. It had been announced when I got interested in Palms, and I waited to order it as my first PDA. Ordered it from Buy.com on the first day it was available (according to Wikipedia, that was in February 1999). I was quite the wonder boy for awhile, it got lots of attention when I pulled it out. Instead of a keyboard, it had a special little area on the screen not used for display that you wrote each letter on with a stylus. For a handful of letters you had to write them differently than traditionally, notably the "x". But it did a respectable job of recognizing most of my handwriting. I took learning to input data with the stylus very seriously, and practiced. They had a little game called "Giraffe" that required you to write letters rapidly, and I practiced enough to be really fast at it!

    I loved the Palm V, and when it was in my bag when the bag was stolen, I immediately replaced it with a Palm Vx (same as the Palm V, but with eight whole meg of memory instead of two meg!).
