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.

We'll see in 6 months when Nokia punts MS or tries another "revolutionary" phone release. Nokia tied itself to one big freak'n anchor that will pull it into the muddy abyss where it will have to sell it's patents to pay off the creditors (or MS).

It's only hope is for the MS board to see Balmer for the failure he is, and replace him with someone that actually has a clue. But I'm not optimistic.

Clueless. Whether or not you want to admit it, Windows Phone OS is the most innovative and design-rich platform on the market today. I don't care for Ballmer that much but his presence has little to nothing to do with the quality of WP. Blame him for not advancing distribution, if you will, but that's about it.
