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.

Here in the US, carriers control when update rollouts occur.

I know that. I wrote a line about it in my previous message to you. It's wrong that carriers [in USA] have that kind of control over what you buy. It shouldn't be like that. You're buying a service from them and that's all. Any device should work in any network without any artificial restrictions.

The way three largest communication companies in USA operate reminds me of a cartel. They're holding back their customers and restricting their legal rights with a various agreements (especially AT&T). It's bad for customers, it's bad for competing businesses, and it's definitely morally wrong.
