For links to all the stories discussed on air, see the podcast post at Pocketnow: 
Yo dudes. This week was gnar, dudes.
First we get word from Commodore that they're back (sorta) and they've got a fleshtone phone to prove it. Then we hear that some kind of modern-day Iron Man is building a phone out of liquid metal. Then we go hands-on with an all-metal, super-stylized ZTE phone, before hearing that Samsung's new smartwatch is gonna have a digital crown and a rotating bezel control. And that's not even half of the geekgasm that was this week in mobile tech.
All that plus your listener mail ahead on episode 157 of the Pocketnow Weekly! So turn on your sensors and warm up your receivers; this podcast is getting ready for a planetside flyby, and you'll not want to miss it.
