Microsoft keeps improving Windows Phone while Amazon's new Fire phone doesn't ignite either one of the MobileTechRoundup podcast hosts.

As we work through the summer Kevin and I share a bit about what we are using and what we are looking forward to in MobileTechRoundup show #325. Show topics include:

  • Windows Phone Store passes 300,000 apps. Matt keeps using his Lumia 1520, 8.1 and Cyan help make it possible.
  • Moto X+1 leaked benchmarks suggest Snapdragon 801 – looks like this will not be another phone with mid-range specs.
  • Timex Ironman watch with 3G data – what a MotoActv successor should have been?
  • Amazon Fire Phone – not even a spark of interest from either of us
  • HP SlateBook 14 – want Android in a laptop? That’ll be $430, thank you.
