When it comes to the need for speed, BlackBerry thinks it has introduced a new interface paradigm that removes one Android screen from the experience entirely. Also, will this new hardware combination on the KEY2 really still deliver two-day battery life as its predecessor did? We have our questions, we’ll try and get some answers.
Plus, WWDC happened on Tuesday, so we’ll give you a low-down of what we think the biggest takeaways are. ZTE is out of the frying pan and into the fire while Qualcomm and Sprint have their own splashes in the pool. We chat with friend of the show Andrew Wallace on this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly!
