Engadget BBS

By on August 22, 2005

Engadget’s 20-year BBS Flashback post is chock-full of utter nerd deliciousness. All done-up BBS style, with relevant stories from August 22nd, 1985.

They’re probably best known for their tires, but lately Finnish industrial conglomerate Nokia’s been making a big push into the wireless biz with its Mobira subsidiary (best of luck with that, Nokia!). Mobira just introduced its latest ultraportable cellphone, the Talkman (positively no relation to the Walkman, so don’t sue, ok, Sony?); clocking in at a mere 11 pounds, this bad boy will have you walking and talking in no time.

If you remember dialing up a BBS on your 1200 baud modem, this’ll take you back.
