MobileTechRoundup show #87

MobileTechRoundup show #87

Our guest host from last week at CES is not back this week, but we did wrap up our thoughts on our trips to Vegas during MobileTechRoundup show #87. There has been quite a bit of talk about the Nokia N800 and a few may be on the way to the MoTR crew shortly. James, Kevin, and I also spent a bit talking about the new Microsoft definition of a UMPC and how the OQO is one now, but then again without Vista it isn't really. We also talked about the failed Zune squirting and why I am back to using my Yahoo! Music subscription service. We even have a freeware of the show that presents Google Reader in a slimmed down way for reading on a UMPC or other mobile device.
