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.

The Lumia name means nothing to English speakers.


Do you mean the word itself? I thought it sounds enough like 'Luminous' to invoke a positive image.

Or, do you mean as a product name? In that case, you're right...
