This week on the Gadget Lab podcast: The gang chats about yet another Android tablet, HP’s mobile problems and Apple’s latest iPhone fiasco.
Staff writer Mike Isaac kicks the show off with product reviews editor Michael Calore, as the two talk about Sony’s entrant into the Android tablet arena. Verdict? It’s got a rad shape, and is far nicer to hold than most other tablets we’ve used.
Next, the two talk about another company’s tablets, HP and its TouchPad devices. The Silicon Valley giant previously said it was getting out of the hardware business, yet decided to give it one last go with another run of TouchPads before they discontinue the product. Oh, HP.
Finally, staff writer Christina Bonnington stops by the studio to chat with Mike about the latest in the Apple iPhone 5 saga. The rumor of the day: Apple has lost another prototype in nearly the exact same circumstances as the year previous. It’s almost too unbelievable to be true.
The two end the show with a brief bit on the latest iOS 5 preview, where developers get a taste of Apple’s new music service, iCloud and iTunes Match. Is it cool? We’ll have to wait for the full release to fully weigh in.
