    5110 was around that time, I remember trying to conceal it at school... it wasn't a gun, I wasn't pleased to see anyone... it was just that big

    Ah i remember, my dad had one. They used to fit in the car hands free kit. I think the 6210 also fit in there.

    I loved the MiniDisc. I was really into MiniDiscs. It's just a shame the portable players ate batteries!!

    It's a shame Sony took so long to release Hi-MD MiniDisc's because they were actually quite good - you could use them for data and record audio losslessly. Saying that though, the 2nd Gen iPod was much cooler.

    the C12 that became the "Savvy"? Still got one. Works, too!

    I had a Philips Diga before that..the Savvy had a vibrate feature though. Better for here.

    Philips Diga

    The Savvy had voice dial, which was a good pub game. Then came my 3210 (still have it), a 3310 (got 2), My 7650 Symbian (still got), MPX200 with WM5 (Still got), Ipaq 512 (still got), and now my Ericsson K800i (favourite so far)
