    Default What were you Using Before You Got An iPhone



    "Motorola's line of powerful, rugged cell phones went on sale in 1992 for approximately $200. These phones put out 3 watts of power (as opposed to 0.6 watts that todays cell phones output) which makes them popular for truckers, boaters, and people in rural areas. Because of their durability, many of these phones are still in use today.

    The Bag Phones are a derivative of the Motorola 4500X, 4800X, and 5000X that proved popular in Europe, as well the American version, the Motorola "Tough Talker". These phones featured handsets attached to trancievers and battery backs, and had optional carry cases. By downsizing the equipment, Motorola was able to make them more marketable, and hence the Bag Phone.

    These phones consist of a handset with a black & white LCD display with InUse (indicating that a call is in progress), NoSvc (cannot receive a cellular signal and is unable to make or receive calls), and Roam (accessing a cellular system other than your home system) indicators, a numeric keypad with other buttons for different functions (depending on the model), and a separate speaker for the ringer and hands-free use. This plugs into the tranceiver (the heart of the phone), which plugged into that is a "rubber duck" antenna, and the power supply connector which plugs into a 12 volt automotive outlet. (A 12 volt lead-acid battery that connects to the power supply, providing 2 hours of talk time and 2 days of standby time, was also available.) All of these parts are conveniently put together in a leather case specially designed for Motorola Bag Phones by Caseworks, inc. of Chicago. These phones can also be permanently installed in a car."-wikipedia

    Oh god, you guys are going to make me unrepress memories of WiMo? I vaguely recall it being called an HTC wizard, but I vividly recall an evil laugh or two as I offloaded it to an unsuspecting soul.

    eeh, if you're using it as a business phone and you're just doing email, appointments and junk then it's bearable. When I was on WiMo, there was no such thing as a decent web browsing experience though, and the whole multimedia thing was severly underdeveloped.

    Everything on the iPhone is organic and natural, simply tap, flick, and pinch. It doesn't give the phone any added functionality, but it makes it 3000 percent more useable. WiMo is 180 degrees away from that, everything is a button or a menu, not the best when you're on the go, and not so fun when you're not either .

    On top of all of that, all my media was already iTunes based before I got my iPhone, and a lot of it was from the iTunes store, so I bought my iPhone a few days after it was released and never looked back.

    ...of course, my new shiny iPhone 3G has since taken over, but that's another story
