Pocketnow Weekly 067: iPad Air, Lumia 1520, and corporate trollery galore
Fun fact: flame wars, petty bickering, and troll hijinks aren’t just confined to the online world; they find a ready home in corporate tactics as well.
That’s a reality we were reminded of this week, as Apple announced its new iPad family on the same day Nokia unveiled not just its first Windows-based tablet, but also the first-ever Windows Phone phablets, at its Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi. Predictably, the Apple news obliterated Nokia’s announcement in the news cycle – but, the Pocketnow Weekly being a platform-agnostic, equal-opportunity podcast, we’re gonna cover both new device families in today’s show. Because that’s just the kind of dudes we are (most of the time).
All that, plus more thoughts on Samsung’s Galaxy Gear and more than a few peeks into the inner workings of Pocketnow, awaits you in the 90 minutes ahead on episode 067 of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. So stick your earpods in your tablet and put your feet up on the table; the Pocketnow team has returned once again to grace you with more mobile tech news, opinion, and weird sojourns into the weeds than you thought possible.
