Dialed In 120: Bonnie's back! (Podcast) Video
Dialed In has its 150th episode as Bonnie returns to San Francisco for a visit. This week it's all about new phone releases, especially if they're from Samsung.
It's a Big Week in the Dialed In studio as Bonnie drops by for a visit and we debate the big news from Google I/O.
This week on Dialed In, CNET's cell phone team debates Verizon's new tiered data plans, iPhone rumors, Samsung Nexus S troubles and the name for Bonnie's new column.
This week on Dialed In we talk about the latest Android phone news, Bonnie and Kent speculate on what iOS 4 will mean for Google's little green guy, and we discuss our latest reviews.
Next week, Bonnie and I are off to Barcelona with Maggie Reardon of CNET News and CNET TV's Ariel Nunez for the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) brouhaha. As the global show for the cell phone industry, MWC (nee GSMA and 3GSM), sets the stage for what will happen in the cell phone world. This week on Dialed In, we devote the entire podcast to what will happen in Spain.
It wouldn't be a week in cell phone land if the Dialed In crew didn't have a lot to talk about. And since it's been two weeks since our last show, you can bet that this episode is chock full of cell phone news and reviews. Leading off is the CNET review of the iPhone 3GS. We're still getting through the lab tests, but we've combed through the new features in depth. Meanwhile, Bonnie enthralls us with a long list of major smartphone news including Flash Player 10 beta and T-Mobile's second Google Android phone. And elsewhere in the podcast, Bonnie sighs, Kent sings, and Nicole laughs at them both.
CNET's resident cell phone expert Bonnie Cha is back from CTIA 2010 and we're all anxious to hear about the new smartphones coming out this year, but the main dish is Sprint's new HTC Evo 4G, the first handheld to use Sprint's WiMAX network that promises faster speeds than traditional WiFi (when it's finally deployed).
Our little Dialed In family is back together once again. After enduring some technical difficulties and travel nightmares, Kent and I are back from Barcelona to join Nicole in the studio where we reflect on all the news from Mobile World Congress 2010. If there's one takeaway from the show, it's that software will play a primary role in this year's smartphones, while hardware will take a backseat. In other news, AT&T is finally getting its first Android phone and Sprint's WiMax devices are coming but not as early as some say. All this plus the latest cell phone reviews on this week's episode of Dialed In.
Nokia reveals its latest mobile phone at the CTIA Wireless IT & Entertainment show in Los Angeles this week. CNET's Bonnie Cha takes a First Look.
This week on Dialed In we warn against believing in rumors and discuss the latest cell phone news.
