Barring any surprises, the next big smartphone launch of the year will come from Motorola – and right on time, we've got some potential Moto X 2015 leaks to share. Alongside that sits the Galaxy S6 Plus, a (possible) monster of a Samsung handset recently leaked by none other than MKBHD himself. And alongside all this newness we're taking a moment to pour a little out for the oldness, with the sixth anniversary of Palm's landmark launch date, 20090606. 
All that, plus the return of What Phone Should I Get and a ton of Stephen Schenckisms to keep your whistle whetted, on Pocketnow Weekly 151. It's scratching at the cupboard door, so unhinge the sucker before it suffocates. Watch the video broadcast from 1:00pm Eastern on June 5 (click here for your local time), or check out the high-quality audio version dropped below. 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!
