Wed Nov 28 2012 (01:27:36)

You know what happens when you get a bunch of geeks swapping hot new gadgets and talkin' tech? The Pocketnow Weekly podcast, that's what. We just hit our twentieth episode, and to celebrate, we decided to tie the podcast into our latest giveaway contest. So in addition to in-depth discussion on the Nexus 4 versus the world, the Lumia 920's camera ups and downs, and the Android-to-Windows Phone learning curve, there's something special for your ears only. Somewhere in today's episode of the Pocketnow Weekly is the special hint word you need to email us at contest [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for your chance to win a $300 wireless HiFi stereo system from Sonos! Click here for full contest rules.

Plus, there's iOS discussion, in-depth exploration and debate on Google's entire Nexus family, and listener mail from two familiar faces. Also appearing, for the first time in episode 020: a short outtake reel easter egg, which we hope you'll enjoy.

Enough rambling. It's time you put the podcast in your ears. Plug in, kick back, and treat your listening holes to episode 020 of the Pocketnow Weekly. Send feedback, questions, and requests to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com.
