i used to have a HP IPAQ with Windows Mobile 2003 on it. I actually really liked Win Mobile 2003, but hated 5 and 6. Wouldn't mind trying to get ahold of one again but yeah... i'd be shit out of luck for replacement cables and stuff. I used to play Bubble Breaker a ton too.

13:39 What Linus says is so so true. We do take tech for granted nowadays. He looks so proud about how far we have come.

Am I the only one who noticed that the thumbnail is a lie? This device doesn't run WM 6.5, lol.

My last archaic phone after the N-Gage QD & b4 the iPhone craze leading to my now loved note 9 was an HTC TyTn II (Kaiser) with the best feeling sliding keyboard i ever experienced at the time running Windows Mobile, I loved that thing so much through my uni years i used to flash ROMS on a weekly basis enjoying everything the XDA Developers community had to offer to this day on android. had like 70 games on that thing which were abundant by then. Good times

Back in the day, when smartphone or PDA were made to actually get shit done instead of uploading another Instagram filtered selfie. *But Linus, can it run Crysis?!*

I had one the HP PDA’s back in 2005 and managed to get an snes emulator on it. I played Chrono trigger all the way through and mega man on it without too many problems. Had no WiFi though, so I had to plug into a pc and tether internet to it. Great device for the time.

Loved my pocket PC. It was a massive upgrade from the Psion but had the same problem of it losing all its data once the battery went.

My first smart phone never got the WM 6.5 upgrade and it pissed me off lol. I can definitely say these things were already uncool in 2006 :P

I remember having a Dell Axim. I used it to transfer between my SD card and my CF because my routers used CF and my laptop strangely had an SD port.

I have my iPaq5555 around still. Had an external GPS for it and used it in Iraq in 2003. Some of the games on it were a lot of fun. Now I might have to dig it out in order to play some of those games again.

As someone who used a PocketPC back in the day, it feels bizarre to hear you explaining things like resistive touch screens and Windows Mobile to people like it's an entirely foreign concept. To be fair though, I suppose that was like 15-16 years ago that I owned mine... lol

This makes me miss my HTC touch pro 1 and 2. They also ran a windows mobile OS like this and I was also addicted to bubble breaker.

How about a honest palmtop pc running on 2AA batteries and running DOS by HP? My 200LX still works great, even if I have to stop and think in DOS John

Yes...I saw lots of iPaqs, Palm and Sony Clies being used when I was in pharmacy school as well back in the day...this really brings back memories of me and my Palm Zire 71 circa 2003.

I mean, it didn't have a full-fledged operating system or anything, but for media the Creative Zen Vision W (released same year) was absolutely leagues ahead of this thing with a decent looking 16:9 screen of about 5" and a 30GB hard drive. It also cost a hell of a lot less than this thing. It had CF slot, speaker, headphone jack, and even composite AV out too so you could hook it up to any TV. Why you wouldn't get that instead of this pocket PC for media is beyond me. Until good smart phones because a thing, I used the crap out of that Zen. I think you could watch video for a good 12 hours on it, great for travelling, commuting.
