We had an interesting bit of synchronicity crop up in the offices of Pocketnow -and in the recording studios of our weekly tech podcast- this week: we’re simultaneously in possession of one of the thinnest, newest tablets in the world – and one of the clunkiest, oldest ones. The interesting part about the latter: it never officially existed.

We’ll talk about that, plus rumors of yet another mini-Galaxy that ain’t bashful about skimping on specs, and a Motorola smartphone that’s all-American from design to manufacture. We’ll also cover rumors of a newer, flatter iOS 7 as well as updates to its Microsoft-sourced competitor, and we’ll even get into a brief discussion about NASCAR and its shared history with mobile communications.

All that, plus Taylor Martin digging himself into an ever-deeper hole of Windows Phone-fan disdain, after the break. We’ve broken out the fine china and good silver and put the dust cover on the couch; the Pocketnow Weekly podcast is ready for its first guest. Send feedback, questions, and requests to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com.
