I'd have to go with the HTC HD 2 and HTC touch pro2....wow....those phones were like....are still like AWESOME, if I could get both today, I really would... I guess Windows used to be HTC's line of trade.
(id also add the Nokia 3310 but let's keep this thread as Windows as possible...FORGET IT!!!...ANY DEVICE THATS AWESOME...LIST IT!!!) so yeah, the Nokia 3310 is listed, solid device, extreme battery, cool games and famous polyphonic Nokia ringtones.
I still remember the Samsung omnia's...they were very impressive for their time, but I cant decide which one deserves to be listed as best. So I'd just say the omnia franchise in general...but still cant come close to an HTC hd 2 or even just the hd. IMO
Which devices do you think should get one last "shout out of remembrance" ?

If this thread would be all Windows (Mobile/Phone), I'd say HD2. It's still a beast.
Well, other than that, there are a lot of phones, the 3310, the 808, the N8, the N95, the iPhone, the...I'm also over at the Moriya Shrine! Go there if you're also a fan of Touhou. After all, it is a small community, like WP, right?

The HD2 was ahead of its time. It's a shame that around the time Windows Mobile was dying off. Also agree that the Touch Pro 2 had a very nice design.
Samsung Omnia 7 was probably my fave WP7 device and it was a shame it didn't make it to North America.

I was in Palm land around the time of Windows Mobile, so I'm not overly familiar with the devices of the time. Although +1 HD2, if any phone, HD2.
my two cents, there's so much more, but idk, kept it too minimal.
palmOne Treo 650
Apple iPhone 4 or original

im surprised this one isn't listed but the motorola Q was the first thin smartphone, period. All of them, the palm treos, the various HTC slider windows mobile pocketpcs, nokias, etc, all were fairly big and clunky until the motorola Q came along and said that a smartphone can be thin and sexy...

After thinking about it for a while, we get so caught up in smartphones around here that I forgot about my first cell phone back in'92. How can any HOF for cell phones be complete without the Motorola Ultra Classic - aka "The Brick". Not only was it a phone, it could serve as a hammer in a pinch, as well as a self-defense weapon if you grabbed it by the whip antenna and rapped somebody upside the head.

I know right...the HTC HD2 is still awesome, even buy today's standards. (note: those phones in the links should all be refurbished and fixed up to new condition)

I love this thread....
I feel so behind the times. I only owned one Windows Mobile phone- the Samsung Blackjack. It belongs on the Wall of Shame- turned me back to Feature Phones for another 8 months and away from Samsung and Windows for a couple years.
But, I will say the Nokia 900- changed the game. Showed the mobile world what a WP could be, should how Nokia intended to set itself apart, and put WP front and center in some amusing commercials ("You mean... I was a phone tester??), and pushed Nokia ahead of HTC and Sammy for good as a WP manufacturer.I find your lack of faith disturbing. - Darth Vader

Sony Ericsson 8X my first smartphone and want a brilliant phone it was, which had my favorite version of android 2.1 Éclair.
What fun I had with that device....

Is it just me or were the old old phones built more solid than those of today (you could smash rocks with a Nokia 3310, it would survive being thrown in pools, dropped in toilets) also if I'm not mistaken, did the old old phones have far greater battery life compared to the phones of today, why a 3310 could last many many days with a tiny little battery, as I played SPACE IMPACT constantly and completed it several times like a hardcore gamer, the laser strikes were powerful against bosses....as for snake....I never lasted too long.
Forget my first post, this thread is open to all platforms and devices. As they are awesome and deserve some recognition. (editing that post now)
I owned and used a saygem or sagem, (flip phone with 128 colour screen) can't remember exactly what its called...but I could game on that thing the whole day without having to ever think about battery...makes you wonder if mobile technology is really going forward ?
