When I posted about finding my old Xda Orbit in the attic after 14 years of it being back in it's box,I was just chuffed to find it still worked. NOW,today,four months later-I'm still using it on a daily basis....much to the amusement of the 'latest,greatest' technology freaks around me.
They ALL want to look at it,try it,even send themselves texts to their own 'phones on it using the stylus. Ok,I'll admit my eyes aren't as pinpoint as they were 14 years ago and i now wear glasses to use it...but it's SUCH an amazing little thing,that the squinting a bit to send texts really IS worth it. The camera is truly amazing...a mere 2mp...yet as clear as photos taken with my iphone. It still works faultlessly,still using it's original battery,an 8gb SD card takes the strain nicely...and it connects to wifi without any hassle-which I find astounding,considering the advances in wifi since this was made. The W6 works without complaint,the Bluetooth has no problems. The ONLY thing I'm careful about is water...it's not-but never claimed to be-waterproof. Meh;a small concern,for such a truly amazing item.
I found my 1996 Orbit when looking for old tapes in the attic. Brought it downstairs,charged it,didn't expect it to work...4 hours later it's running like a tap! NO stuttering,no delays,not even requiring updates [not that there'd be may for an Orbit]...and it's working as well today as it did when first bought,which was in Finland in 1996....let's see you beat THAT,Apple!
Y'know;I'm going to keep this little jem-it's like finding a pebble on the beach and realising it's actually an emerald! My Orbit is doing as well as it always did-but after 14 years in the attic!
awesome phone i used it for 2 years and phone went dead,no services available of O2 now
