The Voicemail

Nokia's Q2 2012 financial results are out! James and Stefan talk about the numbers. Spoiler: They're bad, but surprisingly not as bad as many of us were expecting. We also discuss mobile gaming and the memories we had growing up. Where is Mario these days? And finally we answer a reader question about corporate email, because ... well, someone has to talk about that sort of stuff.

As always, if you can rate us on iTunes or give us some feedback, that would be appreciated.

How much could have possibly happened in the 9 days that have passed since our last episode went live? Well, there was Microsoft's Windows Phone Summit, where we heard about Windows Phone 7.8 and Windows Phone 8. And then last night Google I/O kicked off, where we saw Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Nexus 7, the Nexus Q, and a bunch of people jump out of a plane. We're not making the last one up. Promise!

As always, if you could provide us with any feedback to help us improve the show then it would be greatly appreciated.

This week we're talking about Microsoft's two Surface tablets and whether or not it's dangeous for the software company to compete with their hardware partners. We also discuss feature phones, should they exist in a market with 100 EUR Android smartphones? Stefan says no, James says yes, and you'll just have to tune in to listen to the reasons why.

As always, we appreciate any and all feedback. If you could rate us in iTunes, that would be great!

We made it, our second episode! But in all seriousness folks, we tried hard to incorporate all they feedback we got from our audience. The audio has been normalized, the content has been organized, and we're here today to blow your mind. Topics include XBOX SmartGlass, Nokia's 10,000 job cuts, and what Apple talked about at their annual WWDC conference. Enjoy!

As always, feedback is appreciated.

I'm a huge fan of podcasts, and I've been wanting to start one for as long as I can remember, so I was happy when James Whatley sent me a tweet saying he'd be down to record a 30 minute show every other week. We decided to call our podcast "The Voicemail" since we'll be discussing the mobile industry.

So with that, here's the first episode. In it we introduce ourselves, talk about the devices and currently own, and ponder why NFC hasn't taken off.

Any feedback is appreciated.
