Mobile vintage - unfairly forgotten

The article "Mobile vintage", which was published on our website about a month ago, made many people fall into indescribable delight. Still, when a new idea (collection of priceless junk) is thrown up to all gadget lovers for free, and besides, it is not so expensive and fashionable (remember the collection of old but fashionable clothes, furniture, watches, etc.), then they ( gadgetomaniacs) cannot but fall into the place where I indicated above. If without bullying, then more than once, not two, or ten letters came to my mail with a request to continue the article, open the “Museum” branch on the site and other proposals, including those containing obscene language. The latter interested me less than the former, in this article I will try to talk about “vintage” models that are not described in the first article, moreover, I will try to draw the attention of readers to the so-called fan sites and think about which models will become worthy vintage in the future . The next material on this subject will be published no earlier than in two years - a sufficient period for the aging of current models on the market, perhaps the appearance of a generation of new devices. So let's get started.

Sony Ericsson P800, Sony Ericsson P900, Sony Ericsson P910. Well, as without them, wonderful smartphones from SE, which at one time made all competitors nervous. At the disposal of the user was a fairly compact device suitable for working with mail, browsing sites, able to take photos and shoot videos, plus a touch screen, a detachable flip ... All the advantages of "pawns" cannot be listed, these devices were and still are unsurpassed in the number of ways to enter information and ease of management, one branded wheel is worth something. Probably, many will be surprised how the 910 ended up here, it seems that quite recently it was the flagship. I said above that now the period of “vintage” has decreased compared to previous years. If you are going to purchase one of these devices, then the numbers may not be particularly adequate, the P800 is in more or less normal condition, you can buy some kit for five thousand, but as for the 900th and, especially, the 910th models , then everything is very interesting. Firstly, it is often practiced to replace the case with a non-native, but new one, you can distinguish it by color, the quality of the coating, it looks rather strange. Nevertheless, sellers will tell you with a calm soul that the device is new, from a warehouse, and therefore you will need to pay about eight to ten thousand. I would not advise taking such a device, the case could be changed due to a peeled coating, scratches (the scourge of the original case), or because of a blow, you will find out during operation. In my opinion, if you are already such a fan of the old “Sonerics”, then it’s better to buy a used 900th or 910th from your hands (for example, there is such a se900.ru community), find the original case, you can change it yourself or ask those who understand this difficult task of the members of the forum.

The real discovery for me was to find a completely new P910i on Gorbushka, with a box and all the pies - (albeit a new one, I already have a trained eye). How much do you think they asked for it in the fall of 2006? Do not guess, thirty thousand rubles. Nothing like that, yes, for the same money you can get Nokia 8800 or any other device from the latest. A couple of days later, the seller reported that he had sold the device to a respectable uncle at a discount of a thousand, and at first he did not even believe his luck. Fanaticism is a great thing. Well, or such a story: - recently in the subway I saw a girl P800, also in perfect condition, I got the feeling that she took it out of the box a couple of days ago.

And finally, I’ll say that, having bought one of these phones, you will not experience a lack of accessories, due to the fact that they have an “old” connector, the prices are ridiculous, you can buy another headset for 150 rubles. Then the same with stands, and with any other small things, the same memory cards have fallen in price very much.

Speaking of software, there is a great variety of it, much more than under UIQ 3.0, starting with the simplest Tetris and ending with all sorts of highly specialized programs. The owner of the device will not be in painful bewilderment about what he would like to read a book or what else to play.

Sony Ericsson T610. As practice shows, and we have already talked about this, models from well-known brands with metal in the design become vintage, since they are more tenacious, or devices that were once inaccessible to most flagships. And here is the 610th? It's just a mass model for the middle class, isn't it? Well, did you forget about the anodized coating? It is this, dear, that still attracts the attention of boys and girls in the markets of our country. They ask for about three or four thousand for this phone, I have already said about accessories for old soners, I will also mention that when buying, be sure to check the case for its originality, if the back cover is without metal, do not buy in any case.< /p>

Nokia 9500. Such a vintage. Even the summer before last - autumn, the owner of this communicator was the owner of a rather expensive advanced device, and a year later its shares collapsed. Judge for yourself, then I bought a Nokia 9500 for almost twenty thousand, after some time I changed the device, in the summer of 2006 I bought a communicator from my hands for eight thousand rubles, and now it can be done for five thousand (see my9500 fan site. ru).When asked why to buy, I will answer simply - if you collect devices, then wait a few more months, then five thousand rubles will turn into four, or even three. Moreover, this machine is good for certain purposes, one of my friends, who runs all sorts of advertising projects, constantly runs between Moscow and Novosibirsk, 9500 completely replaces his laptop - you can watch and quite conveniently edit all sorts of price lists, watch the Internet, do other office things. A sort of replacement for a subnotebook, only much cheaper. There is not much software for the platform, but everything you need is there, plus there is a long work as a phone, Wi-Fi.

Siemens SX1. When the trees were big, and Siemens had not yet rested in Bose, there was such a Siemens SX1 smartphone. What kind of smartphone it was, I think you know very well, I won’t repeat for the thousandth time about the keyboard, OS, all sorts of little things, because I didn’t manage to use it, although there were attempts to buy it, and already in a used state. Now it is quite possible to get the SX1 in almost any market, prices range from three to five thousand, depending on the condition and kit. What are you getting? An extremely curious smartphone for any collector, a rather interesting designer thing, in this regard, it seems to me that there will be no such bold experiments.

Siemens SK65. If you are a fan of SMS, then be sure to look at this phone, which once cost about ten thousand, and now you can find it on the market for three or four. Firstly, it is quite large, I like the size and simple shape of its body. Secondly, this case moves apart, revealing access to the keyboard, which is extremely convenient for typing SMS, correspondence via Jimm, using Opera Mini - I tested all this on myself. I really liked it, this is a curious Siemens, one of the last, despite the lack of a memory card, a camera. Although sometimes it was buggy (it is solved by the firmware, you know). By the way, there was a very curious design version of this phone, the back cover there was wooden, from some rare breed. Where to get it - I'll never know.

Alcatel 715. But I once had this phone, as I remember now, it attracted me with a "metal" case, a stand for connecting to a computer, a long time of operation, a large display, and there was a fashion factor - 715th It was so thin, it lay nicely in the hand. Until now, sometimes you can see this device in the hands of a variety of people, from a businessman to a seller in the market, it has a certain charm. Alas, it is rather difficult to find it on sale, it is clear that it was supplied to our country in small quantities. If you are going to buy, pay attention to the kit and battery life, it will be unrealistic to find a replacement.

Motorola E2. It seems to be a recent phone, but I recorded it in the category of vintage models. And not only vintage, but also exotic, because it was not supplied to our country at all. What is good? The sound, of course, is almost like that of the N91. Plus, a 3.5 mm jack on the case, the ability to talk without removing the headset, a good display. The rest leaves much to be desired. For this vintage exotic they ask about five or six thousand, a new device can cost more. Collectors and all lovers of beauty should definitely pay attention.

Nokia 6600. Pot-bellied is currently a real friend of students, you can buy it for a couple of thousand, and squeeze out everything possible - read books, listen to music, etc. etc. Of course, this is not Nokia N95, but still (just kidding). By the way, I recently saw a 6600 on the market with a sticker on the back cover: “I'm N95!”. And rightly so, which "Zaporozhets" does not dream of becoming "Tavria". What more i can say? The model is extremely common, there are a lot of components, the main thing is that it should not be recessed, but this applies to any phone. True, it’s hard to check this when buying, trust the smell - if the phone smells of mud, then it was drowning, if not, then everything is fine (just kidding).

Sagem myX-8. Beautiful white or black design phone with which you can listen to music. Another good display, men's size, well, I'll say it again about the design. There are not many such phones on the market, there are practically no new ones, a used copy will cost about four to five thousand.

To be honest, I did not set a special task to list the entire vintage and could miss something, if you take offense at me for this - in vain, I don’t know exactly which old device sunk into your soul, you can assume that everything The above has sunk into the soul of the author. And now let's imagine which of the actual devices will become vintage in a couple of years. I will not talk about their distinctive features, just list a small list. Nokia has 8800, 8800 SE, N91, N93, N80, E90, E61i, Sony Ericsson has P990i, W880i, W950i, Motorola has Z6, Z8, E6, Samsung can have X820, F300, F500, F700, various subtle solutions. This is just my point of view, I will be glad to chat with you on the forum in the appropriate thread.

The next material on this subject will be published no earlier than in two years - a sufficient period for the aging of current models on the market, perhaps the appearance of a generation of new devices. So let's get started.

Sony Ericsson P800, Sony Ericsson P900, Sony Ericsson P910. Well, as without them, wonderful smartphones from SE, which at one time made all competitors nervous. At the disposal of the user was a fairly compact device suitable for working with mail, browsing sites, able to take photos and shoot videos, plus a touch screen, a detachable flip ... All the advantages of "pawns" cannot be listed, these devices were and still are unsurpassed in the number of ways to enter information and ease of management, one branded wheel is worth something. Probably, many will be surprised how the 910 ended up here, it seems that quite recently it was the flagship. I said above that now the period of “vintage” has decreased compared to previous years. If you are going to purchase one of these devices, then the numbers may not be particularly adequate, the P800 is in more or less normal condition, you can buy some kit for five thousand, but as for the 900th and, especially, the 910th models , then everything is very interesting. Firstly, it is often practiced to replace the case with a non-native, but new one, you can distinguish it by color, the quality of the coating, it looks rather strange. Nevertheless, sellers will tell you with a calm soul that the device is new, from a warehouse, and therefore you will need to pay about eight to ten thousand. I would not advise taking such a device, the case could be changed due to a peeled coating, scratches (the scourge of the original case), or because of a blow, you will find out during operation. In my opinion, if you are already such a fan of the old “Sonerics”, then it’s better to buy a used 900th or 910th from your hands (for example, there is such a se900.ru community), find the original case, you can change it yourself or ask those who understand this difficult task of the members of the forum.

The real discovery for me was to find a completely new P910i on Gorbushka, with a box and all the pies - (albeit a new one, I already have a trained eye). How much do you think they asked for it in the fall of 2006? Do not guess, thirty thousand rubles. Nothing like that, yes, for the same money you can get Nokia 8800 or any other device from the latest. A couple of days later, the seller reported that he had sold the device to a respectable uncle at a discount of a thousand, and at first he did not even believe his luck. Fanaticism is a great thing. Well, or such a story: - recently in the subway I saw a girl P800, also in perfect condition, I got the feeling that she took it out of the box a couple of days ago.

And finally, I’ll say that, having bought one of these phones, you will not experience a lack of accessories, due to the fact that they have an “old” connector, the prices are ridiculous, you can buy another headset for 150 rubles. Then the same with stands, and with any other small things, the same memory cards have fallen in price very much.

Speaking of software, there is a great variety of it, much more than under UIQ 3.0, starting with the simplest Tetris and ending with all sorts of highly specialized programs. The owner of the device will not be in painful bewilderment about what he would like to read a book or what else to play.

Sony Ericsson T610. As practice shows, and we have already talked about this, models from well-known brands with metal in the design become vintage, since they are more tenacious, or devices that were once inaccessible to most flagships. And here is the 610th? It's just a mass model for the middle class, isn't it? Well, did you forget about the anodized coating? It is this, dear, that still attracts the attention of boys and girls in the markets of our country. They ask for about three or four thousand for this phone, I have already said about accessories for old soners, I will also mention that when buying, be sure to check the case for its originality, if the back cover is without metal, do not buy in any case.< /p>

Nokia 9500. Such a vintage. Even the summer before last - autumn, the owner of this communicator was the owner of a rather expensive advanced device, and a year later its shares collapsed. Judge for yourself, then I bought a Nokia 9500 for almost twenty thousand, after some time I changed the device, in the summer of 2006 I bought a communicator from my hands for eight thousand rubles, and now it can be done for five thousand (see my9500 fan site. ru). When asked why to buy, I will answer simply - if you collect devices, then wait a few more months, then five thousand rubles will turn into four, or even three. Moreover, this machine is good for certain purposes, one of my friends, who runs all sorts of advertising projects, constantly runs between Moscow and Novosibirsk, 9500 completely replaces his laptop - you can watch and quite conveniently edit all sorts of price lists, watch the Internet, do other office things. A sort of replacement for a subnotebook, only much cheaper. There is not much software for the platform, but everything you need is there, plus there is a long work as a phone, Wi-Fi.

Siemens SX1. When the trees were big, and Siemens had not yet rested in Bose, there was such a Siemens SX1 smartphone. What kind of smartphone it was, I think you know very well, I won’t repeat for the thousandth time about the keyboard, OS, all sorts of little things, because I didn’t manage to use it, although there were attempts to buy it, and already in a used state. Now it is quite possible to get the SX1 in almost any market, prices range from three to five thousand, depending on the condition and kit. What are you getting? An extremely curious smartphone for any collector, a rather interesting designer thing, in this regard, it seems to me that there will be no such bold experiments.

Siemens SK65. If you are a fan of SMS, then be sure to look at this phone, which once cost about ten thousand, and now you can find it on the market for three or four. Firstly, it is quite large, I like the size and simple shape of its body. Secondly, this case moves apart, revealing access to the keyboard, which is extremely convenient for typing SMS, correspondence via Jimm, using Opera Mini - I tested all this on myself. I really liked it, this is a curious Siemens, one of the last, despite the lack of a memory card, a camera. Although sometimes it was buggy (it is solved by the firmware, you know). By the way, there was a very curious design version of this phone, the back cover there was wooden, from some rare breed. Where to get it - I'll never know.

Alcatel 715. But I once had this phone, as I remember now, it attracted me with a "metal" case, a stand for connecting to a computer, a long time of operation, a large display, and there was a fashion factor - 715th It was so thin, it lay nicely in the hand. Until now, sometimes you can see this device in the hands of a variety of people, from a businessman to a seller in the market, it has a certain charm. Alas, it is rather difficult to find it on sale, it is clear that it was supplied to our country in small quantities. If you are going to buy, pay attention to the kit and battery life, it will be unrealistic to find a replacement.

Motorola E2. It seems to be a recent phone, but I recorded it in the category of vintage models. And not only vintage, but also exotic, because it was not supplied to our country at all. What is good? The sound, of course, is almost like that of the N91. Plus, a 3.5 mm jack on the case, the ability to talk without removing the headset, a good display. The rest leaves much to be desired. For this vintage exotic they ask about five or six thousand, a new device can cost more. Collectors and all lovers of beauty should definitely pay attention.

Nokia 6600. Pot-bellied is currently a real friend of students, you can buy it for a couple of thousand, and squeeze out everything possible - read books, listen to music, etc. etc. Of course, this is not Nokia N95, but still (just kidding). By the way, I recently saw a 6600 on the market with a sticker on the back cover: “I'm N95!”. And rightly so, which "Zaporozhets" does not dream of becoming "Tavria". What more i can say? The model is extremely common, there are a lot of components, the main thing is that it should not be recessed, but this applies to any phone. True, it’s hard to check this when buying, trust the smell - if the phone smells of mud, then it was drowning, if not, then everything is fine (just kidding).

Sagem myX-8. Beautiful white or black design phone with which you can listen to music. Another good display, men's size, well, I'll say it again about the design. There are not many such phones on the market, there are practically no new ones, a used copy will cost about four to five thousand.

To be honest, I did not set a special task to list the entire vintage and could miss something, if you take offense at me for this - in vain, I don’t know exactly which old device sunk into your soul, you can assume that everything The above has sunk into the soul of the author. And now let's imagine which of the actual devices will become vintage in a couple of years. I will not talk about their distinctive features, just list a small list. Nokia has 8800, 8800 SE, N91, N93, N80, E90, E61i, Sony Ericsson has P990i, W880i, W950i, Motorola has Z6, Z8, E6, Samsung can have X820, F300, F500, F700, various subtle solutions. This is just my point of view, I will be glad to chat with you on the forum in the appropriate thread.
