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.

Wow, didn't know you could connect a pc to a lumia phone with wifi. How do you do that?


I don't know, but I didn't say that. What I meant is that connecting your phone to other devices/services is done using wireless technology these days. You don't need to transfer pictures to your computer to upload them to Facebook, you don't need to synchronize your address book via a wire with your computer. You don't even need a wire anymore to charge or connect a headset.

The teacher bought the wrong phone, but then he or she still could have put the pictures on-line. I'm not sure the IT department would like personnel filling up hard drives with pictures and other stuff.

If millions of people start using Linux then Nokia will put in the effort. Right now it makes no business sense to get all the hassle those hundreds of different Linux distributions give you for the VERY small percentage of Linux users that would/could buy a Lumia.

For a Linux user an Android phone would be a more logical choice.
