Pocketnow Weekly 127: OnePlus One mini, BlackBerry Classic, Windows Phone ups & downs
"Bring us alternate topics," you said. And boy oh boy, have the waning days of December delivered.
On today's podcast, we're joined by Daniel Bader of MobileSyrup for a firsthand account of the BlackBerry Classic launch and an acoustic retelling of MobileSyrup's BlackBerry Classic review, told as only a true Canadian can tell it. On the heels of that, we're looking at the leaked OnePlus One mini: sure, it might be a fake, but it's about time for a new OnePlus One, and a slimmed-down edition would be very welcome indeed. And speaking of overdue smartphones: where the hell's our next Windows Phone flagship? All that, plus Dial F For Fail, your listener mail and a new installment of the "What Phone Should I Get?" advice column, in the podcast ahead!

What phone should I get?
A segment about making choices, fueled by your listener mail. This week: a reader vacillating between the LG G3 and the new Moto X, and a die-hard Microsoft fan asking the increasingly common Windows Phone question: should I stay or should I go?
Dial F for Fail
A segment from our top news wrangler about injustice, misdeeds, and general foolishness within the mobile industry. Today’s topic: rollover, stash, and other buzzwords that don't mean what T-Mobile wants you to think they mean.
The Data Stash Plan Clash: you can't pick-and-choose when you're taking a principled stand
E-mailed submissions from Alex Sechro, Keegan Anderson, and Tom McCarthy
It may just sound like a ringtone to you, but our transition music track ("Radiation") is a real song, from a real album, by a real artist: Ali Spagnola. You can download that album, along with many others, at Ali's website here, visit her YouTube page here, and follow her on Twitter here!
See you next week!
