What was your first smartphone?

If you take some time to really think about it, it's truly amazing how far we've come in the smartphone space over the course of just a few years. Not all that long ago, phones like the Galaxy S9, iPhone X, and others would seem like something out of science fiction movie.

As great as the phones of today are, however, there will always be a special place in everyone's heart for their very first smartphone. It may not be amazing or even good by today's standards, but it can still be a lot of fun to look back at what used to be.

One of our forum users popped the question of "what was your first smartphone?", and this is what some of you had to say.

Blackberry Curve 8330 on Verizon, and I think it cost $199 and tied me to a 2-year contract with hefty termination fees. Good times!


Motorola Droid Maxx HD.. I think 2011. Up until then I was rocking a flip phone and thought smart phones would be a fad.:p


I think I will have most folks beat... Palm Treo 650, circa 2004.


My first smartphone was Samsung Galaxy Y which had Android2.3.3 version i.e. Gingerbread version.


As for me, my first smartphone was the Palm Pre from 2009. Even though it'd probably be maddening to try and use the thing in 2018, I'll occasionally find myself daydreaming about its quirky design, great keyboard, and fantastic operating system that was WebOS.

Now, let's hear from the rest of you! What was your first smartphone?
