The Pocketnow Weekly Podcast, Episode 031

Rarely has the “lull” between trade shows given us so much to talk about. We kicked off the week with an exciting announcement welcoming two new members to the Pocketnow team, and since then we’ve barely been able to keep news, editorials, and videos on the front page long enough to read them. This feed is on fire.

From ever-strengthening rumors about the HTC M7 and Samsung Galaxy S IV, to interviews with newcomers like Jolla, to new looks at old friends with BlackBerry 10, to modding and jailbreaking today’s top smartphones, we’ve gotten a lot done since the last episode of the Weekly, and we talk about all of it in today’s installment – the last one before our live coverage from MWC starts late next week!

Plus, listener mail, for the second week in a row. That’s gotta be some kind of record for the podcast. So stuff some tuna salad into a lettuce wrap and crack open your bottle of Perrier, you fancy-pants finicky eaters; this week’s low-carb serving of the Pocketnow Weekly is here to sate your hunger for techno-knowledge. Send feedback, questions, and requests to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com. Follow us on TwitterFacebook, and Google Plus to stay apprised of the latest episodes. Thanks for listening!
