Mobile Nations 11: Cheap tablets and cloud music


This is probably the best podcast you guys do. I really enjoy it a lot.

And, also, Derek is the best part of the show. He's funny in an awkward kind of way. Breaks up the monotony that sometimes creeps up when everyone else is talking or when Rene is trying to throw the conversation at someone.

I came to comment about Derek and I saw your comment. That's exactly what I was thinking, he is very funny.

Hey Kevin, if the Web OS guy loses Web OS make sure you keep him with crackberry. The guy is too funny.

On a different note I finally got my hands on the 64gb Playbook. Now I don't have to hesitate to download a bunch of stuff. Anyone in the market for a 16 gb?

Wow! Good luck with that update! It will never come! The sad part is that developers have it, but RIM can't make it work with their services + they've gone out of their way to make developers agree not to release the fact that it is terrible at present! NO developers are interested! If they were, RIM would have a lot of apps, yet they've been stuck at 35,000 for over 2 years! They funniest thing I've read all week was a RIM exec, lying about how BB apps get downloaded the most & make the most money for developers! If that's not delusional, I don't know what is! lol
