Updated with timecodes and links to the high-quality episode! Enjoy the show, everyone!

Let it never be said that the weeks leading up to a trade show are dull ones. Since we last podcasted, we’ve gone hands-on with no fewer than three new mobile devices, reviewed another two, set up a giveaway for the world’s most privacy-centric smartphone, and brought you an exclusive leak of the world’s next big smartwatch. And with IFA still two weeks away, you can bet the news avalanche will keep on rolling.

Join us, then, for a discussion on HTC’s new Windows Phone; Motorola’s new Android(s); Samsung’s Gear 3 with dangerous curves; Sharp’s edge-to-edge Aquos Crystal for Sprint; Xiaomi’s dark horse Mi4; and … well, we can talk about the new Nook too, if you want. All that plus your listener mail –and special guest Todd Haselton from TechnoBuffalo– on an exciting 90 minutes of mobile tech talk.

If that’s the kind of podcast that Booms your Sound, then the Pocketnow Weekly is the show for you! Join us live on the air today at 2pm Eastern (click here for your own local time) for Pocketnow Weekly 110 (or download the high-quality edited version of the show down in the Links section when it’s ready) and shoot your questions to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air. See you then!
