Hitachi SH-G1000 Pocket PC

The Hitachi SH-G1000 Pocket PC — also known as the largest Pocket PC in history.If my memory don’t cheat with me then it was one of the first Pocket PCs to use cellular data (it used Sprint’s 1xRTT network for data), and this enabled us to constantly use AIM, send email, and use Microsoft’s Internet Explorer; it also took our pretentious-douche-factor to new heights when we used it in our local Starbucks.

It had a portrait, full-QWERTY keyboard built-in. As an added bonus, there was a rotatable camera, 400 MHz CPU, and 32 MB of RAM. While the device was not “pocketable,” the battery life was impressive; clocking in at over a day of average use, possibly two. The device retailed for $649 on Sprint.

    I had one of these, some co-workers used to make fun of me by picking up a kleenex box and saying “hello”…  Maxwell Smart wished his shoe phone was as cool! xD
