4 Must Have Slider Phones of 2007


Back when I was still in high school, I used to borrow my mum’s phone when I went out with my buddies. It was cool at that time to hang on to a Motorola MicroTAC mobile phone. Here’s a picture of it.


Seeing it again tickled me. The weight of the thing feels like having a dictionary in your pockets. Unimaginable but hey, things change. Now we can watch videos, listen to songs, record videos, snap pictures and even read our emails from our mobile. The weight gets lighter as the shape gets slimmer and the features just keeps coming in.

Below are 4 slide mobile phones that I consider a must-have for me (that is if I had the money). The pictures alone are tempting enough to make my mouth water.
