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.

For the sake of this industry, I hope Microsoft fails and gets the boot they deserve for all those years.

Also, their designs are less and less "inspired": they are regurgitating again and again the N9 body. A bland design, a colored rouded rectangle - yes, it is a rounded rectangle too - instead of a black one. Meh.

And, the last straw on the unicorn's back: the Windows Phone UI is supposed to be less boring than iOS and Android? Please. It is wildly different (...except if you see it as a collection of widgets as a front page), but less boring?


Yeah, just what we need: fewer choices in the market, higher prices, lower quality. Rah, rah, rah. Feel better? Idiotic comment.
