Pocketnow Weekly: MWC 2014 preview, #ANHO, and Binging Jack Ryan’s Icon
MWC 2014 is already upon us, with Anton D. Nagy and Jaime Rivera hitting the ground in Barcelona just as this podcast goes under the mic, and we’re here to bring you mobile mavens all the pre-show rumor and speculation that you’ve come to expect. But there’s also plenty of news of the non-Mobile World Congress variety, from the endless leaks focusing on the “All-New HTC One” to speculation surrounding the Galaxy S 5 launch date – and we’ll be spending plenty of time on that, too.
Plus, Taylor Martin has finally spent enough time with his suitcase-coddled Lumia Icon to develop some impressions of Nokia’s latest Windows Phone, just in time to help him recover from what was apparently a strenuous encounter with the Boost MAX. And Joe Levi makes a triumphant return to the podcast this week with some deep thoughts on 2K, Huawei, and just what it means to be “mini.”
We’ve got everything from fake Siri to Jack Ryan on this #ANHO-heavy episode of the Pocketnow Weekly, so turn the volume up and rip the knob off: we’re here to talk mobile tech, and it’s gonna get weird (in all the right ways).
