Pocketnow Weekly 059: IFA 2013 speculation-fest

It’s the show that kicks off the fall season in consumer electronics and mobile technology, and we’re going to be there, as always, to cover it. But IFA 2013 is next week – and last we checked our Novice’s Guide to Chronometry and Basic Time Theory, there’s a whole lotta time between this week and next.

So let’s fill it with speculation. Join Jaime Rivera, Taylor Martin, and Michael Fisher on a whimsical journey into the prospective future, as they bat around rumors and leaks concerning such luminaries as Samsung’s Galaxy Note III, LG’s new G Pad, a futuristic Galaxy Gear smartwatch, and something called “Honami” from the good people at Sony – oh, and some soup can-sized smartphone camera attachments from those same folks.

That’s the magic that awaits you on episode 059 of the Pocketnow Weekly, along with a sizable portion of tomfoolery and general wisecracking goodness. The next podcast will be from Berlin itself, with sound quality nowhere near as good as this … so join us, won’t you?
