Quote from: McHeath on April 11, 2010, 12:15:00 AMAfter reading all the various ideas about the exact dating of this phone I'd still place my money on it being one of the 50 1948 field trail pre-production phones. While the production model has quite a few differences, none of them seem to be revolutionary, the basic pattern is set in this phone. A few tweaks to the factory tooling and shazam, the phone we all know and love emerges.

I thought about humor, with repeat of, "Watson come here", but thought better of the idea, then in and out with a few more ideas, but finally I think came up with what fits the occasion.D/P
