Wow somewhere there's a warehouse full of this hardware...

...and it gets flashed by each vendor out there. I've seen this made by Palm, HTC, and pretty sure LG if not Samsung has used this once before.

It ran Windows 5 back in the day, and i'm sure there was a 6.1 version at some point too, from one of these guys. heh

Funny to see this thing pop up again with yet another vendors name on it.

Such a small niche form factor, yet keeps getting rehashed for use every couple of years as an attempt (or was) to get Blackberry users to move onto windows.

Fun stuff.

This is a messaging phone running BREW. It has more in common with a flip-phone than a smartphone.

Buy to make your text messaging life easier banging out a million texts a month with its full keyboard instead of the numeric keypad of a flip phone. Its cheaper than smartphones if thats all you do or all you want your kids to do.

The only thing thats a rehash here is the form factor. Comparing to Windows, Palm, Blackberries, etc. is silly Laughing

I said it was a rehashed form factor, in fact, this same hardware (meaning the outer housings) has been used before on older Devices going back to Palm.

Google Image the HTC Snap and learn what I'm talking about. This has nothing to do what is running on it, as I'm stricly speaking of the Housing/Hardware.

I'm a technician, i've seen and opened 1000's of these exact looking models, going back to Windows 5 and Palm OS running on them.
