We have walked 500 miles and we would walk 500 more to be the men that walked a thousand miles to podcast off the floor of apartment rental. That's all out of necessity for us to not only cover days and days of devices launched before and at the International Funkausstellung Berlin 2016, but in order for us to podcast. And this late audio file is the result of our fruits.
Juan Carlos Bagnell and Jaime Rivera team up to talk about the pop and burn of the Galaxy Note 7, Google dropping Project Ara, the Star VR from Acer, Huawei's Nova before it, Sony's now-usual disappointments and a whole bunch more. Currywurst or none, eat up! It's episode 216 of the Pocketnow Weekly!
Check out the high-quality audio version right here or see the companion YouTube video later on. 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 next week!
