Pocketnow Weekly Episode 016: The Surface RT & Windows 8's future, Windows Phone's next generation, & Google's new Nexus family

Fri Nov 02 2012 (01:31:32)

The holiday period is always a busy one, but when you've got industry-defining products launching from literally every major manufacturer and platform-maker, it's a special Q4 indeed. That's what we're looking at with this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly: from Microsoft's new Surface RT and Windows Phones, to Google's new Nexus family, to Apple's iPad Mini, there's a lot to cover. Throw in a lot of Windows 8 and Android commentary, the typically awesome helping of listener mail, and the fact that two-thirds of the podcast team have bad head colds, and you get a sweet -if stuffy- hour and a half of internet-radio goodness.
