Microsoft came rip roarin’ ready this week with a small convertible tablet that starts out at $399. Unfortunately, unlike an iPad, if you really want to take your computing somewhat seriously, you’re going to need to spend upwards of $800 on a Surface Go. Does it make sense?

We’ll sort that out and look into the five-camera trend that seems to be cropping up, plus a lesson on case design, why if you don’t care about the blockchain you should probably care about HTC and the impending death of the four-inch iPhone. Again.

All this and more as we unfold the week’s news and then get a bit of dust in it and then make the keyboard not work, but at least the keys are quiet… on the Pocketnow Weekly!

Watch the YouTube live broadcast from 12:00pm Eastern on July 13th or check out the high-quality audio version right here. Talk back live while you’re watching the show on Twitter with #PNWeekly! You can shoot your listener emails to [email protected] for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air at the end of the month!
