Pocketnow Weekly 021: Droid Rage Backfire, New Lumia Reviews, and Google's Nexus Family Revisited

Thu Dec 06 2012 (01:34:46)

Microsoft kick-starts the smack-talk machine, which blows up in its face just as Nokia sells its own headquarters. The Lumia 822 gives us an excuse to launch a brand-new review format, while a Nexus 4 trade lets us take a post-review look at Google's latest smartphone. The iPhone 5S breaks its cover -maybe- while the Nexus 10 gives everyone a reason to care about big Android tablets - again, maybe. Rumors of a new 1080p device from LG get the speculation bonfire going again, but a cool bucketful of Google Play-colored cold water got us back on track.

And, of course, it wouldn't be a podcast without some doom-and-gloom news from HTC.

All that, plus listener mail and Joe Levi's inimitable insight, after the break. Plug in, kick back, and treat those beautiful ears of yours to episode 021 of the Pocketnow Weekly. Send feedback, questions, and requests to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com.
