Pocketnow Weekly 025: Mobile Ubuntu, CES Leaks, Sailfish, and More
Just because it's a new year doesn't mean things are changing with the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. We're still shaking up the host roster on occasion, and we're still squeezing more than 90 minutes of discussion out of the mobile-technology news sector, even in the pit of the post-holiday lull.
On our first podcast of 2013, Joe Levi joins us to talk Android amid a sea of pre-CES leaks, but not before we dive into a long and detailed discussion about the new mobile version of Ubuntu - a platform we'll learn how to consistently pronounce someday, but not today. We also touch on Sailfish and Open webOS, and interspersed amid our "official" topic list entries are conversations about the Nexus 7, Galaxy Camera, Lumia 920, NFC, app development, HTML5, mobile networks in third-world countries, and the beautiful iOS-based game The Room.
All that, plus some truly awesome listener mail and Joe Levi sounding like he's broadcasting on an AM transmitter from the 1930s, after the break. We promise his audio quality gets better as the show goes on, so plug in, kick back, and treat those sharp, perfectly sculpted ears of yours to episode 025 of the Pocketnow Weekly.
