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.

Wow Thom I actually have to agree with you... Since everyone else (Samsung, HTC, Google...) has been copying the iPhone instead of coming up with their own designs , they do look the same. You just validated Apples design lawsuits. Now if these other companies would get off their collective asses and do some original design, we might actually have more choices.

You obviously offended the Apple and Google fanboys who see rounded corners and grids of icons as the ultimate in industrial design. Meh. Talk about boring. WP runs circles around these clowns.

Personally I dispise the wp interface and Nokia's phones look like the phones attached to my little kids play kitchen... Butt ugly plastic toys.
