SMRpodcast episode #214 is online and ready for download. Even though Rod is with Chris and Robb, this episode is a lot like Chicken Wings and Beer, particularly because we start the show off talking about chicken wings.
Amazon is about to unveil the long rumored Amazon phone and we’ve learned that it will initially be sold exclusively on AT&T. The entire crew believes that the exclusive launch will ultimately hinder sales. Time will most certainly tell.
China reveals Microsoft’s secret Android Patents. This is probably not too big a deal in the short run, however, OEM’s will undoubtedly try to steer clear of infringing patents where possible and renegotiate licensing deals with MS next time around.
