The Pocketnow Weekly Podcast, Episode 030

Even if it takes six Skype calls to make a podcast happen, we’re gonna do it for you folks, because that’s just the kind of guys we are.

And it’s a good thing, too; while the news cycle has calmed down somewhat in the wake of last week’s big BlackBerry event, there’s still plenty to talk about from the worlds of Android and Windows Phone, from rumors and speculation to … well, no, just rumors and speculation, really. But it’s scintillating stuff, especially if you’re into things named “M7” and “Nokia Tablet.”

All that, plus listener mail and a heaping helping of Joe Levi’s robot voice, after the break. So pour some coffee over some ice, or melt some Velveeta over some chips and crack open a 2-liter of RC Cola: episode 030 of the Pocketnow Weekly is here to slake your aural thirst. 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!
