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.

Btw, with any old nokia you don't even have to copy over the picture to the harddrive. You just plug in the cable or connect with bluetooth and open the picture directly from the phone.

Not sure you'd want to show pictures taken with an old Nokia phone, they'd be very bad and this badness will be magnified even more on a projection screen.

If a teacher working with Linux computers wants to take pictures with a mobile phone and show them on a Linux computer he'd better make sure the mobile phone he wants to buy can do this.


I see nothing wrong with putting pictures on Facebook and showing them in a classroom.

I have a lot of Apple stuff at home and prefer Linux to Windows, but my son has a Windows computer (and an iMac!), because all kinds of educational stuff only runs on Windows. If your school works with Linux they'll have a lot more/worse problems than showing kids pictures taken on some trip.
