Pocketnow Weekly 117: Apple revision, Sony regurgitation, HTC RE-invention
Apple's about to drop the world's thinnest tablet with the iPad Air 2, HTC's branching out to build more than just smartphones with the HTC RE, and Sony's ... well, Sony's sticking to its guns with the Z3v smartphone. Last year's guns, to be precise.
Amid all this, the rumor mill continues churning forth. Motorola isn't done shedding secrets, with the Nexus 6 and Droid Turbo leaks coming fast and furious in the lead up to a presumably imminent launch. The Note Edge is promised to go on sale this month even as Samsung's year-over-year profits crash into the basement, and Microsoft has plans to foster a brand new messaging platform even as Google Voice finally decides to take MMS seriously.
If all this sounds like the perfect marshmallow in your hot chocolate this blustery autumn Friday, you're in the right place. Join us for Pocketnow Weekly 117 and shoot your questions to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air. Enjoy!!Pocketnow Weekly 117
