Pocketnow Weekly 053: HTCs are getting smaller, & Lumias are getting larrrrrger

Share This Content
Never let it be said that Multimedia Manager Jaime Rivera isn't a trouper. In the hot Honduras heat, with no power and no A/C (and, incidentally, no shirt), he still manages to show up on-time to the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. That right there is some broadcast heroism, folks. No matter what Taylor Martin's new-office excuses are.

But that's not what we're here to talk about. No, we're about a week overdue for an audio-only examination of Nokia's newest flagship, the Lumia 1020: we'll cover it's high, low, and so-so points, and debate just how much action a phone has to bring to be worth the Lumia 1020 price: $300 on contact. We'll also venture over to the smaller side of the spectrum with HTC's new One Mini, examining the age-old question of just how much compromise a company can get away with when it claims to have made "no compromise" in designing a product.

All that, plus a sweet joke from the cult comedy flick Airplane!, after the break. So ice down your Americano and grab your folding fan: today's Pocketnow Weekly Podcast is about to bring some heat into your listening space.
