  • B&O 9600


    Evaluation in my collection: Very good – 9/10


    Life timer: N/A  |  Boxed: NO

    Release Year: 1996  |  Release Price: N/A

    About: Telephones are for speaking into and for listening to, but why stop at that? When Bang & Olufsen developed their own, they were built on the accumulated knowledge of natural sound, the durability of materials and of logical operation and function.

    BeoCom 9600 was a GSM mobile phone in a class of its own as far as materials, manufacture and function were concerned. In spite of its unassuming appearance, it gave the user a loud and clear connection, even in noisy environments and with a card for fax and PC, it gave total mobility.

  • Ericsson GH 174

    Evaluation in my collection: Very good – 8.5/10

    Life timer: N/A  |  Boxed: YES

    Release Year: 1992  |  Release Price: ~300 EUR

    About: Ericsson?s new GSM digital pocket telephone, the GH172, has now received the ITA (Interim Type Approval) certificate from German authorities. The GH172 has passed all segments of the required testing, and was approved for the digital telephone standard in Europe, GSM. Deliveries of the product will begin in Germany in November, 1992. Ericsson?s first GSM phone was a re-engineered version of the similar looking, NH72. N refers to NMT, the old Nordic analogue network, G to GSM and H stands for hand portable/handset. The NH72 was developed from a larger brown and orange creation, Ericsson?s first hand portable, the HotLine Pocket. Nils Rylands, Head of Research at the Ericsson Mobile Telephone Laboratory and his team took a police radio and turned it into a mobile phone. The codename for this project was ?Curt?. ?Curt? broke a long running Ericsson tradition.

    Up until then, all Ericsson mobile phone research projects had been given female names. The female naming returned for the GH172/NH72, which was called ?Olivia?. The successor, a slightly updated version GH174, made in white buttons.

  • Ericsson T28s

    WOW Factor: The lightest handset on the market in 1999

    Evaluation in my collection: Great 9.8/10

    Life timer: N/A  |  Boxed: NO

    Release Year: 1999  |  Release Price: N/A

    About: The T28 was the lightest and slimmest mobile phone at the time, with a weight of only 83 grams.

    Unlike many mobile phones of the time (1999?2001) it had a fixed, stubby external antenna. It was probably best known as the first phone that used lithium polymer batteries. At one point, it was the best selling mobile phone in America.

    In terms of market positioning, Ericsson designated this as a premium phone, as such it was priced substantially higher (often more than triple) the price of the T10 and T18 devices – their nearest cosmetic and functional competitors. It has a tiny LCD screen and an spring-loaded latch mechanism to release the ‘flip.’

    Four different versions of the T28 were sold. T28z was compatible with GSM1900 for use in North America. T28s was compatible with GSM900/1800 for use in the rest of the world – this is by far the most common version. T28 World was compatible with GSM900/1900 for use worldwide on GSM900 and North America on GSM1900 (this was the second World phone Ericsson introduced, the first being the I888 which had the distinction of being the first commercially available GSM900/1900 phone). A special version, the T28sc was released in China with support for reading and entering Chinese characters.

    The device came in three colours?very dark blue, lighter blue and sand. The sand version being the least common.

    The device was listed as compatible with two batteries. A normal slim-line and an ultra-slim lower capacity battery. However the device was also battery-compatible with the later R320 and R520 series.
