Casio Pocket Organizer
When I was in elementary school I acquired a small Casio pocket organizer that was probably more calculator than organizer. That was my introduction to pocket handheld devices. It had a little 12 character alpha-numeric LCD display and could store names, phone numbers, birthdays and little else. It also had a password protection feature (very important). I'll have to have my folks dig around in my old room to see if this thing is still lying around. I would love to find out an official model number and get a picture of it.
Palm IIIe (abt 2000-2001)
Palm m100 (abt 2001-2003)
I don't recall much about this device other than that its screen seemed significantly smaller than the IIIe. It was slightly faster and had a newer version of Palm OS. I don't think I had this one for very long before I sold it and upgraded to the m505.
Palm m505 (abt 2003-2008)
Apple iPod Touch 2nd Gen 8GB (2008-present)
Amazon Kindle 3G Keyboard (2010-present)
The 3rd generation Kindle finally came down low enough in price and added unlimited 3G with a decent enough web browser that I could justify using this as my first cell-network web device. As a poor college student I couldn't possibly afford a smartphone with a data plan. I still use this device today to do all of my reading. Since this device has a (albeit robotty) text-to-speech feature that can be sped up, I use it quite a bit to listen to my books while driving to and from work.
I am very picky about my devices being flawless. I had this particular device replaced by Amazon under warranty 3 separate times because of defects. The first time, the device locked up and couldn't be recovered. The second device formed some weird, visible bubbles underneath the screen. The third had battery issues. Finally the fourth one was just right and has worked great ever since.
HTC Thunderbolt (2011-2012)
HTC Rezound (2012-present)
This is my current phone and is about 9 months old. I haven't destroyed it yet.
Nexus 7 8GB (2012-present)
I can't see myself staying with Verizon much longer after the spring of 2014 when my current contract is up. Until then, hopefully, this will remain unchanged.
