New vs old phone tech

I was just lamenting that the HTC phone that I received at last May's Google I/O conference still runs Android OS v. 1.5, so I can't run all the nifty 2.x apps yet.

Then I remembered that I got the corded Panasonic phone sitting on my desk back in 1988. It still works. And doesn't require electricity or batteries (except for the speed-dial, which I no longer use).

Yeah, it doesn't fit in my pocket, or play Yahtzee, or track my runs with GPS. But... hmm, I thought I had a point somewhere...
