Anyone still using an XDA?

Just wondered, never had one myself but remember them becoming really popular as terminals for the local taxi companies.

 

Haven't been in a taxi for a bit so don't know what they use now but just wondered how many people still use them?

 

 

Current tech used:
Nokia 5 on giffgaff, Core i7 9700F PC with Win 10 Pro. Apple Mac Mini late 2014 with Core i5 running 10.15
Home Internet Connection: Zen Internet Fibre To The Premises Full Fibre 1 38 Mbps Down/9 Mbps up,
I don't work for O2 but have an interest in networks (including mobile) and IT (which is how I earn my living)

I had one of the very early ones but unfortunately it died & I actually didn’t have any use for it anyway after I got my iPhone 3GS

@techtamer @Anonymous I'm not too familiar with that, any chance either of you could explain to me better what an XDA is and what it's for? Today feels like a good day to learn  Smiley Happy

Oh I get it now, thanks for the link @MI5

 

I guess that kind of gives my answer away @techtamer - I don't use one Smiley Wink

@EmilieT @It’s a portable computer like an iPhone or iPod but with a better operating system than the windows phones

Re: Anyone still using an XDA?

Thanks @Anonymous  Smiley Happy Put like that, I can understand why you didn't need one anymore after getting an iPhone 3GS. Why do you guys reckon someone would need to use an XDA nowadays, with smartphones being so efficient and powerful? I'm curious, sorry!

@EmilieT Nobody needs them anymore, it’s defunct & a extinct format like the short lived minidisc

@EmilieT 

 

Firstly apologies, I forgot it was before your tenure.

 

I don't think anyone needs one but you know there are some people who will use a device literally until it dies so just out of interest I thought I'd ask the question.
