Featuring a 1.0mm-thick 5.5" full color with Corning Gorilla Glass, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor, 6GB of RAM, Android 7.0 OS, a 16.0-megapixel camera with flash, 8-megapixel front-facing camera, and dual front-facing stereo speakers.

Sure, compact disc players aren't as popular as they were a decade ago, but it's always nice to look back and see how far technology has come. Today, we're showcasing the Sony D-88 - released in 1998 - the world's smallest portable CD player - a 3" disc fits completely inside. To play a standard 5" CD, users had to flip back a blue bar into the lid for the disc to hang out on 2 sides before playing. There's also a switch on the back to move its center drive wheel for switching between 3-5" discs. Click here to view more pictures. Continue reading to see two more hands-on videos.
