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 phone has 32gb of internal storage, plus 7gb of Sky drive (25gb in my case because I was grandfathered in)

Plus you can also stream mixes of music for free from Nokia Music, or get all you can eat subscription music from Zune Pass and stream selectively there.

Contacts, Calendars, Emails, Photos, Music, Videos, Text, Apps, and probably more already lives in the cloud, so for me an SD card is useless.

I'm glad they have an appreciation for the seamless poly carbonate design and refused to compromise on it.

Oh marketing; "seamless poly carbonate design" sounds so much better than "plastic cover."

The 920 is unibody polycarbonate. Solid plastic with the same color all the way through, meaning if it scratches you can hardly tell. Its a much higher grade material.

It feels extremely good in hand, and decidedly unplasticky.

This isn't your Galaxy S III plastic that Samsung loves so much, this is premium stuff with a premium feel.

There are videos of the Lumia devices being used as hammers, or withstanding huge falls.
