Sony Ericsson W880i (2006)
The W800 may have been Sony Ericsson's first Walkman phone, but the W880i was the first one we coveted. Sleek, brushed-metal and great for playing music, it was a gadgety dream.
Motorola RAZR V3 (2004)
Originally intended to be a limited-edition premium phone, the RAZR's demand became so great that eventually everybody had one, in one of the zillion colours it got released in while Moto milked its success. The phone itself was a pig to use, but boy was it a lovely object.
Sony Ericsson T610 (2003)
One of our all-time favourite candybar mobiles, the T610 was tiny yet classy. Despite its teensiness, it crammed in a camera and Bluetooth, while the nub-like joystick was great for games.
Nokia 8110 (1996)
Yes, it's the Matrix phone. After we'd watched Neo purposefully pop the slide down on his 8110, we all wanted one. Shame the spring-loaded slider was a custom addition to Keanu's and we had to wait for the later 7110 before we could get a similar push-button slide action. Still, the 8110 looked far cooler.
Nokia N95 (2007)
GPS, a 5MP camera, dual-sliding form factor, HSDPA and expandable storage via a MicroSD slot all added up to make a formidable device. If it weren't for that dastardly iPhone redefining the smartphone genre, the Nokia N95 may have reigned supreme for years.
