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.

I for one will only use Google's Nexus devices as they're the only ones not screwed up by the carriers. I wouldn't use an Apple device is someone held a gun to my head. Using a Windows powered device is completely and utterly out of the question. I don't care if it can turn water into wine.

N9 is pretty carrier influence free. That's the last real Linux handset that came out. Hopefully Jolla will release one next year.

Nexus models were never meant to last forever. Obsolescence was built into their DNA. After they were done attacking ships off the shoulder of Orion, they die. The candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long... :-p
