Smartphones! Smartphones everywhere! | Pocketnow Weekly 170

Update: I have exacted my revenge for an opinion that is, I think, well-placed. Enjoy!

AT&T launches something pretty cool and T-Mobile makes fun of it. Verizon’s prepping a couple of new handhelds and they’re called “Droids.” OnePlus is cooking up a new smartphone and it’s being pretty secretive about it. If I didn’t know better, I’d say we’ve been here before. All this, plus: the BlackBerry Priv finally gets a date, teens roll their eyes at the Apple Watch, and we go eyes-on with your listener mail, on episode 170 of the Pocketnow Weekly!

Watch the video broadcast from 12:00pm Eastern on October 16 (click here for your local time), or check out the high-quality audio version here. And don’t forget to shoot your listener mail to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air!
