PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In its struggle to find willing customers, Nokia just announced yet another flagship phone - the Nokia Lumia 1020. It's essentially a Lumia 920/925, but with the Nokia 808's PureView camera bolted on. Also, it's exclusive to AT&T in the US, for $299 with a two year contract, which is a steep price. So, who gets the honour to be the first to claim that this, yes this Lumia will turn Nokia around?

Versus meaningless monikers like Ace, Exhibit, Fame, Pocket Neo, Rush, Star, Young, etc.? Sure, these numbers are so confusing. :|

That's just it, they aren't numbers. Look at cars, I'm used to models not necessarily indicating any performance or cost differences. Just by the name, I can't tell you if a mustang is better or worse than a fusion. But when you start throwing numbers at me, I want to see a pattern in them. Maybe that's just the math geek in me, but I'd think that even people who hate math would do the same.

In the same line I was kind of disappointed that gateway computers never issued a gateway 2001. I mean come on.

I defintely know what you mean. I think they are numbered more like peugeot numbers their car models.
