Would Mondelez International really let Google attach its Oreo trademark to the name of what will be the next version of Android? That may be the way the cookie crumbles. If you do decide to let it crumble, make sure to capture that moment on your new Snapchat Spectacles — you’ve got no line to wait in anymore — and post an album to Instagram. Between all that and the week’s worries and frets from Samsung, we’ve pretty much got this podcast covered.

Well, okay, maybe we can talk a little bit about MWC 2017. That’s where we’ll start and we’ll be answering YOUR questions throughout the show, so make sure you’re charged and ready for the Pocketnow Weekly!

Watch the live video broadcast from 11:30pm Eastern on February 24th, or check out the high-quality audio version right here.

For folks watching live, you can comment and ask questions by using the #PNWeekly hashtag on Twitter during the broadcast. For folks watching later, you can shoot your listener emails to [email protected] for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air the following week!
