I might have all of you beat...my first computer was a Radio Shack TRS-80 Model I. With a whopping 4k (yes, K) memory, <1 MHz processor, no hard drive, storage was on audio cassettes. 64X128 pixel video resolution. Just barely fit in the trunk of a '49 Ford. Cost more than my HP laptop. Eventually traded it for a McKay Dymek shortwave receiver, which I sold about 10 years later on eBay for $400. About the same time, I found a similar computer, about 2 generations later, sitting on someone's curb.

My first computer was an Apple ][gs. 4mhz, one huge whole megabyte of RAM (an inconceivable quantity at that time; nobody could figure out what anyone would do with that much), color monitor probably about equivalent to EGA, 3.5" futuristic electronic-ejection floppy, 5.25" floppy, and a mouse that never got used because no applications supported it.
There was essentially no operating system as we know it today. Each program came with ProDOS on its disk and booted on its own; you could not exit a program and get to the OS, all you could do was shut off the computer. If you knew the key combination to press before it started booting from a disk, you could get into the ROM's BASIC interpreter which had no access to the floppy drives so you couldn't save anything. It came with a "System disk" that had something more resembling a modern OS on it, but every time we booted from it, it destroyed the disk (even if we write-protected it), which stunk because it was pretty cool...it had a GUI as later seen on Macintoshes, as well as a paint program and a system tour program that was setup as a game complete with animation and sound. It also allowed you to use a BASIC interpreter that could access disks.
My phone is the Moment from Samsung. It runs Android and is shockingly quick at everything I've thrown at it so far. I'm used to my Q which had delays and lockups every time I tried doing stuff on it like watching videos and playing games. Stupid WM5. The fact that they NEVER upgraded that phone to WM6 even though the hardware was essentially the same as the Q9 series which did come with it was enough to make me not want a Motorola again.
I can honestly say I've never owned a Nokia. All my phones have been either Motorola or HTC, with the exception of an LG CU320 that was such a POS that I took it back after 26 hours and exchanged it for a Motorola. My dad had a TDMA version of that Nokia on AT&T Wireless for years though.
I too have never had a Nokia. First, a cheap basic Verizon-branded Qualcomm that had a cover that flipped over the keys. I lost it a few months after I got it...I left it on my lowered tailgate and drove off. Then I had a Motorola V60i, then a Motorola V710, and now a Samsung M500 (all pocket-sized flip phones).

Thrown in there are several GSM Moto V3's that friends & family have given me. I've refurbished several of them myself. I also ordered some OEM housings from Hong Kong in colors that were never available here in the US. I now have Moto V3's in bright red, apple green, black, dark blue, and I have spare housings in pink and silver.
