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.
These 5 finalists were selected in the Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 Pro photo contest. Vote for your favorite photo of people enjoying music.

StyleTap continues to be updated and now has support for landscape mode on your Windows Mobile device. If you have a Pocket PC or Phone Edition you can still run Palm OS applications that you find essential.
