July 31, 2015

Welcome to episode #111 of my podcast (1 hour 15 min), where I’m joined by the incomparable Matthew Miller to discuss the most excellent LG G4, other flagships (including the iPhone 6 Plus), and a bunch of smartwatches (including Pebble Time)!

Then stick around to hear about Microsoft’s Nokia writeoff, Apple Music, and Google Photos. Finally, we chat about new and upcoming handsets like the Huawei P8 Lite and the OnePlus 2… So go ahead, jump right in — we’re waiting for you :)

tnkgrl Mobile podcast – #110

April 16, 2015

The wonderful Dan Seifert joins me on episode #110 of my podcast (1 hour 1 min), in which we rant and rave about the HTC One (M9), the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Apple Watch, and more… We also share our excitement for the upcoming LG G4 and Microsoft apps — yes Microsoft!

Note: I’m well aware that the video version of this podcast ends suddenly after just 27 mins. Something must have happened during the Hangout on Air. I’ve reached out to Google for support and hopefully the full video will be restored.

tnkgrl Mobile podcast – #106

August 6, 2014

For episode #106 of my podcast (1 hour 10 min), I was joined by the fabulous Chris Davies! The plan was to talk about Microsoft and the recent layoffs, but the conversation degenerated rapidly into other topics such as the LG G3, HTC One (M8), HTC Desire 816, Samsung Galaxy S5, Nokia Lumia 930, and Amazon Fire Phone, natch…

Another thing: Obi-Wan Kenobi and Angela Lansbury somehow both made it into the recording — you’ve been warned :)

Unboxing the HTC Arrive

April 23, 2011

A few weeks ago, I received an HTC Arrive review unit from the PR people at Sprint.

It’s the first CDMA Windows Phone 7 device, and it’s the only phone to ship with NoDo (the update that adds copy/paste) – my HTC Surround is jealous :)

Take a look at my unboxing video, and follow up by reading this excellent review for more tasty info.

Recently, the friendly people at Microsoft sent me an HTC Surround review unit. It’s the first Windows Phone 7 device I’m getting some quality time with, so I’m pretty excited :)

Here is my unboxing video – pictures to follow. In the meantime, read this excellent review.


Kin One and Kin Two camera

Kin Two sample pictures (slide show):

After unboxing Kin One and Kin Two and briefly using the ill-fated devices, I switched my attention to the cameras, hoping to find some redemption there. I didn’t!

What I did find was more of the same half-baked recipe – mostly decent hardware hindered by poor software and crappy user experience. More after the break…
