Remember How Thick Phones Used to Be?
I’ve got Verizon Palm Treo 700w sitting in front of me. Usually it’d be in a box in the corner of the office, but it made a star appearance in our recent Pocketnow 5.0 teaser video. The phone is remarkably, crazy thick at 23mm, or, in other words, three times thicker than the thinnest phones of today, like the HTC One S. Not only is it three times thicker, but it’s magnitudes “dummer.” The Treo 700w had a single-core 312MHz CPU with a mere 32MB of RAM. And the phone, in-hand, feels like a tank. It’s seems that the phone, with its extra heft and endless thickness, would be unusable. Alas, the Treo 700w was a hot phone that humans of just six years ago revered as a great piece of high-technology.
What’s the thickest phone you’ve ever owned?
