Kevin and I are still enjoying too much time in the sun, including for a pickleball tourney, but we were able to get together to record MobileTechRoundup show #274 this weekend. In addition to a short discussion where I explained to Kevin what pickleball is, we talked about the following mobile topics:

  • Apple’s been looking at a smaller iPad for 18 months now!
  • More thoughts on the Nexus 7 and some cases
  • Are tablets taking over for smartphones?
  • RIM announces 4G LTE PlayBook. Why?
  • More U.S. wireless carrier woes: Google Wallet expands, but carriers still block it

  • Is T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note too late with the Note II announcement coming later this month?

Topics: Mobility, Apple, BlackBerry, Google, Telcos
