The Pocketnow Weekly Podcast, Episode 011


As autumn creeps in, the frantic pace of summer succumbs to the sluggish chill of the fall, and the world slows down to catch its breath.

Unless, of course, you’re talking mobile technology. This back-to-school season has been one of the most exciting and dynamic in memory, with smartphones and tablets from a huge array of manufacturers vying for our strained -but infinite- attention. Tune in to this week’s Pocketnow Weekly podcast for in-depth discussion of the iPhone 5, iOS 6, Apple’s Maps problems; Jelly Bean, Samsung, and LG phablets; Windows Phone’s lawsuits, colors, and cameras; and even some BlackBerry news. Plus: reader mail!
