The All New HTC One won’t grace us with its presence until the end of the month, and at this point we’re beginning to wonder if HTC will have anything left to reveal at the announcement. From a sales guide to promotional materials to yet another undercover hands-on video, the leaks surrounding one of the year’s most anticipated Android handsets refuse to let up – and we’re here to talk about them in our latest pre-#ANHO podcast!

Before that, of course, we’ve got the usual news of the week, including a duo of Samsung tablet reviews, rampant speculation about a brick-and-mortar Google store, and a tour of Microsoft’s new Windows Phone camera application set to some very sultry music indeed. All that and more is waiting for you on episode 087 of the Pocketnow Weekly, so mash those cans on, turn the volume up and rip the knob off: we’re here to talk mobile tech, and it’s gonna get awesome.
