January is just about over and the quiet before the storm is as well with lots of mobile news hitting in February. Kevin and I were still able to find current topics in mobile tech to chat about in MobileTechRoundup show #288. 

Topics in this show included:

  • Unlocking your phone is now illegal, although a carrier can still do it for you. Good, bad or just silly?
  • Galaxy Note 8.0: looks legit and interesting; particularly because of the speaker at the top. A small tablet with voice, perhaps.
  • Nokia Drive+ comes to other Windows Phones. Does this help Microsoft or Nokia?
  • Nokia announces Nokia Music+ subscription service for Lumia owners
  • Vine for iOS, Twitter video service
  • First thoughts of the Acer W510 Windows 8 tablet / dock. Build quality, specs, performance, usage.

Running time: 57 minutes
