If you thought the Palm commercials of 2009 were as weird as mobile tech advertising would ever get, HTC and Robert Downey Jr. have something to show you. That’s the conversation that kicks off this week’s edition of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, and it’s followed by some heartening news about this year’s IFA in Berlin. If the rumors hold true, we should be in for some powerfully geeky, if unconventional, tech in Germany this year – and even if they don’t, we’ve got plenty to talk about in the way of chipsets, Nexii, smartwatches, and phablets.

If none of those terms make sense to you, you’re in the wrong place. But if you’re already salivating at the thought of snap-on camera modules and X8 mobile computing systems, your week is about to get a whole lot more awesome. So firmly secure your pocket-protector and perch your horn-rims on your nose: Joe, Anton, and Michael are here to propel your week even higher into the geekosphere with the latest Pocketnow Weekly mobile-technology podcast.
