Pocketnow Weekly 080: HTC M8 x, Galaxy Note 3 Neo, a $50 Motorola smartphone & a resurgent BlackBerry
“Our revels now are ended, Kirk.”
That’s a quote from Star Trek VI, paraphrasing a line from Shakespeare’s The Tempest. In the latter instance (minus the “Kirk” bit) it’s a conceit of sorts, an admission that the play is a falsehood – and an observation that so, perhaps, is life. In the former example it’s a wisecrack from a Klingon bent on shooting our favorite captain’s ship out from under him. In both cases, it’s a kind of farewell. And in today’s example, it’s also a goodbye – to the old times.
That’s a pretty dramatic way of saying that we’re finally, officially past the post-CES slump – and full-on immersed in the news fires of the new year. The buzz of the trade show has faded into the background, and today’s speculation and leak traffic revolves instead around devices not yet seen, from the HTC M8 (and M8x) to the Galaxy Note 3 Neo to a temporarily rejuvenated BlackBerry to the (sorta) dual-platform Android/Windows Phone device … and beyond.
All that, plus a rallying wrist-load of wearable news and more coherence than you’ve come to expect, await you on episode 080 of the Pocketnow Weekly!
