Cell Phone Progression

Well, it’s the end of an era. Last Friday I went into Best Buy and bought the Droid Incredible – just the third cell phone I have ever owned. My LG C2000 clamshell phone with the Cingular logo still on it was just not cutting it anymore. The C2000 has been at my side (in my pocket) for the last five years, the last two of which it shared with an Ipod Touch to make up for its lack of media playing and internet ability. Now both devices, along with my Kodak Zi8 HD camera/camcorder and Garmin e-trex GPS have been more or less rendered unnecessary by this one marvelous device.

Looking back at the three cell phones I’ve owned, here is how they stack up:
