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.

Incidentally, I have seen an N9 "in the wild." The fact that it was in the hands of a former Nokia employee probably says a lot though...


I have one in my hand right now ;) And I absolutely adore it. Complies with all the standards too, nearly everyone has a cable that fits it, connect it to any OS and it shows up as a mass storage device. All the updates are wireless, supports all the standard Bluetooth protocols, and doesn't need any fancy software on the PC side. Just as well, because Nokia didn't really release any... But being able to pair it with my Linux laptop and instantly have 3G broadband available with no messing about is a joy!

I don't know what I'll replace it with in a couple of years. Windows 8 looks nice and WP7 is good, but it doesn't make me happy the way Meego does.
