Pocketnow Weekly 038: Facebook Phone Speculation, Optimus G Pro vs Galaxy Note II, Weird Keyboards, & More
Sometimes you just have to schedule a podcast a few hours before a major news event, and as a result you've got to scramble to come up with some valid-sounding speculation about just how useful a Facebook Phone could really be. It's not like we haven't tossed this notion around before, but doing it on the air, off-the-cuff, imbues our lives with a certain energy, a certain je ne sais quoi, if you will. Or even if you won't. Whatever; we have a good time riffing. You'll listen and like it!
Ahem. All that, plus some chat on just how big a copycat LG's Optimus G Pro is - and how well it does against the entrenched incumbent, Samsung's Galaxy Note II. HTC gets its time in the sun this episode as well -the result of an offhand remark about a trip to the Microsoft Store that also resulted in the purchase of an HP Envy x2- and we talk robot horses Android Trojans and alternative keyboards for a long, long time.
There's more we have to tell you, so set your GTalk status to "away" and tell your secretary to hold all your calls: this week's lengthy episode of the Pocketnow Weekly is ready for your assimilation.
