The Pocketnow Weekly Podcast, Episode 018


“Shorten your topic list,” they said. “The show won’t run as long,” they said.

An hour and a half later, another lengthy episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast is ready for your listening enjoyment. And make no mistake: we could have talked for another 40 minutes at least.

That’s not because it’s been a huge news week, but because our discussion topics are dense and detailed. Topics like phone reviews, new platforms, and 1080p screens. Subjects like GPS navigation, wide-angle smartphone cameras, and whether Google should become a wireless carrier. The merits and shortcomings of the Lumia 810, Lumia 920, and the Droid DNA. The agony of a prickly pre-order process. And all of it kicked off by this week’s Thought Thread, where we briefly wax nostalgic about our first-ever mobile phones.

But we’ve already said too much. Plug in, kick back, and treat your listening holes to episode 018 of the Pocketnow Weekly. Send feedback, questions, and requests to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com.
