Pocketnow Weekly 063: Apple soars, BlackBerry plummets, and HTC & Beats divorce
The mobile space is full of profound juxtapositions this week as Apple can’t make enough iPhones to meet demand, while BlackBerry can’t keep its head above water long enough to sell existing stock. Meanwhile, Microsoft announces its second round of Surface products, while soon to be-acquired hardware maker Nokia (allegedly) prepares its own Windows tablet – and the horrible marriage of smartphone maker HTC and audio baron Beats finally, mercifully, dissolves.
That’s the big news for the week ending September 27, 2013, and all of it -plus iOS 7 literally making people sick- awaits you in the ninety minutes ahead on episode 063 of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. So take your seasickness pills and get your rain gear on: Michael, Stephen, and Taylor are waiting to take you into the rough waters of corporate fortune and failure, where the vertigo is gonna grow ’cause it’s so dangerous you’ll have to sign a waiver.
