Google and Verizon events, Surface RT failure, HTC One Mini, Lumia 925 (MobileTechRoundup show #300)

Summary:Kevin and I recorded MoTR podcast #300 this weekend and look forward to continuing the discussion with faithful listeners.

The MobileTechRoundup podcast began in October 2005 and this weekend we hit the 300 show milestone as we swamped with new phones and mobile technology and enjoy sharing our thoughts with our supporters.

It may be the summer time, but the mobile space hasn't slowed down as we discuss in MobileTechRoundup show #300. I made a trip to New York after the big T-Mobile and Nokia week, but still had the chance to try Halo on a phone and buy a new phone. Show topics include:
