Snow storms have their ups and downs. On the one hand, they keep you from partaking in all the Nokia unboxing fun your comrades in more seasonable climes are enjoying – but on the other, they put you in mind of all the friends you have in the great Arctic North. One such person is friend of the show Nick Gray of HTCSource and Android and Me, who joins us today for a special extended episode taking a long look at all the HTC M8 rumors of the past few weeks.

That’s followed by the rest of the news, which this week ranges from Galaxy Gear 2 and iPhone 6 speculation to riffing about Android apps running on Windows Phones. Plus, we’re finally announcing the winner of our dbrand-sponsored Nexus 5 giveaway, and we’re also getting around to some long-delayed listener mail.

It’s all there waiting for you on episode 083 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 kinds of ways).
