PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless If there's one thing I miss in the current smartphone industry, it's design. Honest to good, real design. We basically see one boring slab after another, void of any true identity, whether it's iPhone, Samsung, or any of the others. In this boring world of grey, black, and the occasional white, Nokia is the jester, coming up with its own unique designs and crazy colour selection. Today, the company unveiled the Lumia 920 and 820 to continue this trend.

I can still not understand how Thom, as an os-geek, can give so much public endorsement to a piece of hardware that if successful will lock millions of people out of alternative operating systems.

****************
The new nokias can by design only be connected to a pc with a mainstream operating system!

(There is a great selection of TWO, and the second one has very small market share, so it will probably be dropped if windows phone ever get big)

For this reason I, as a finn, would rather have nokia die than succeed with the current strategy.

Thom has apparently given up and been assimilated.
