Submission + - Nokia: memory card slot would have "defiled" our phone ( 1

nk497 writes: "Nokia unveiled its flagship Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 handset today, but it doesn't feature an SD card slot. There's a reason why: Nokia's designers didn't want to "defile" the design. "We started with the premise that we wanted an uncompromised physical form," executive vice president, Kevin Shields, said. "To put an SD card slot in it would have defiled it." He said most people don't use the storage in their phone, although the Nokia Lumia 820, which has only 8GB of storage, does include a micro-SD card slot behind its removable cover, which Shields claims doesn't compromise the design."
