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.

A piece of plastic of one color you say??? What kind of science fiction year 3000 bullsh*t is that?

Given how it is a product that has not been released yet... I imagine that plastic must feel really good; light as air and strong as reinforced concrete.

In any case, I'm glad to see Nokia/Microsoft finally learning a thing or two from Apple's astroturfing manual. Hopefully these are the devices that finally put Nokia back in a good position, they really need it.

Are you inebriated? The polycarbonate is also present on the released Lumia 800, 900, and on the Nokia N9. ANY owner or these devices will tell you its Cyan, or Black, or Red all the way through.

And I, unlike you, actually CAN comment on the Lumia 920s feel because I actually held one at last nights Nokia NYC event I attended. Feels identical to my Lumia.

I don't know if you're just being stupid or, well, no, that's it, there's no alternative, you're just being stupid.

LOL, I assume either your humor/sarcasm is broken or perhaps the whole thing about astroturfing hit too close for comfort, didn't it?


Anyhow, arguments to authority on the internet are silly. I too was at the New York event, err I mean I read internet tech blogs and I saw the pics... (relax, don't get your panties all in a twist!) The phone looks beautiful and it is clearly different from android/apple offerings, monochromatic plastic and all.
