This weeks release of the first five Windows 8 phones was quite striking for me in one way, DESIGN. Take a look at the five phones in question:
Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia Lumia 820, Samsung Ativ S, HTC 8S, HTC 8X.
It actually looks like some thought and some love has been put into the devices. Well, not quite all of them as the Samsung looks terrible imho. It just looks like every other characterless Android phone... but Nokia and HTC have poured their hearts into the design of these devices. If it can be done on WP8, why can't HTC bring similar designs to Android?
Some might argue that its because WP8 needs something to differentiate itself from Apple and Android on the shelves. Its not just colour though, the actual design and aesthetics look like they've had some thought too.
Would you like a colourful Android device rather than another faceless black or white brick?
Has there ever been a really well designed Android phone? What has been your favourite?
