I remember owning on of these
Gone for good.
I had an x3-02 way back
Can't wait to read an article about the Samsung Jet (which, if i recall correctly, was an updated version of the Ultra S8300, without the keypad - other interesting hybrid).
It'd be great also a flashback about Sony Ericsson's A100/A200 platforms, which had smartphone-like capabilities (3 j2me apps switching) without being one. They had been the only ones doing that for many years, in the dumbphone category. Amazing OS.
luck i used x3-02 and nokia 6233... remembering my nokia days... not purchased any samsung device yet.. shifted nokia to apple...
XCIV, 10 May 2020Back when phones looked innovative & different and not just a generic slab of glass and al... moreLOL. Innovative and look different? How are these innovative? Even Nokia themselves did a better job way long ago with their S60 phones. These are just half-assed attempt at tricking the lowest end consumer to pay more for seemingly “smart” features. Making things more complicated than it supposed to be is not innovative.
You want today phones look different? Like how, triangles?
I love the X3-02 Indian ad where people play table tennis and also type on their phone easily.
Back when phones looked innovative & different and not just a generic slab of glass and aluminum.
I wish I bought one of these back in the day
