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.

This is what I was waiting for. I considered Lumia 800, 900, but there were too many limitations. Then I considered good-old N8 (which is great Nokia Belle based smartphone) vs E7 (similar to N8, with keyboard and without some features of N8). At this time I discovered PureView (also Nokia Belle based) also - very nice follow up to N8, however, in my opinion, a little bit weak in hardware department.

Finally, I decided to take N8. And you know what? This is great smartphone. I made hundreds of great photos from my latest trips to Vilnius, Riga, Tallinn an Prague. Mainly street views and architecture, but some photos are good enough to be exposed on the walls at home :-) Moreover, off-line GPS with voice is really good. Therefore, N8 is one of the best phones/smartphones I've seen. Very flexible and universal. No limitations of Lumia 800, 900, good battery time (due to lower hardware), nice looking Nokia Belle with themes, modern feel (however Nokia Belle = Symbian), lots of applications in Ovi shop - I downloaded everything I need, including Endomondo for running.

What's more? I have everything I wanted.

But, the next smartphone will be Nokia with Windows Phone 8. Maybe not 820, 920, but their follow-ups. This is it - a mix between features of N8/PureView (reduced sensor doesn't make a difference for me, N8 has 12Mpx and its enough).

Could you imagine how nice it will be to integrate you PCs, notebooks and XBox console together? Although, I'm PS3 user :-)

Very happy news! I'm Nokia fun since many years.
