TOPICS:

After a week of recovery, we’re back from CES…with a little “behind the set” secret to share direct from the ‘Beanbag at the Bellagio.’ ;)
Final CES thoughts on what we saw and what we didn’t see.
The Nokia N800 looked pretty sweet; might we get our hands on a few?
The OQO is now a UMPC if you go by the Microsoft Mobile PC Newsetter.
Actually is Vista turning all small handhelds into UMPCs?
So can you get an OQO with Vista or not? We see XP Home and Professional but that’s it, even with the product delivery out 2-3 months after the Vista launch.
Zune squirting: works most of the time…..:(
Freeware Free service / site of the show: Reader Mini by John Tokash! Great for the small screen, it’s a front end to Google Reader!

MobileTechRoundup 86: live from the Las Vegas strip!

Category: Podcast — admin @ 7:56 am

CLICK HERE to download the file and listen directly.
MoTR 85 is 21:18 minutes long and is a 7.3 MB file in MP3 format.

INTRO: Based on Time v2.1 by Meta Sektion, additional mixing by James Kendrick.

HOSTS: James Kendrick (Houston), Matt Miller (Seattle) and Kevin C. Tofel (Philadelphia)

TOPICS:
Matt, James and Kevin couldn’t pass up the opportunity to record a show from the CES in Las Vegas, since all 3 were in the same place at the same time for the first time.  This show is recorded live from the Bloghaus in the Bellagio Hotel/ Casino and is the funniest show yet!  The trio learn first-hand the challenges of recording in a public place, and even pick up an unintended co-host who, shall we say, has definite opinions about mobile technology.  :)   The MobileTechRoundup censor was working overtime to make sure this show stayed clean for your listening pleasure.

First up on the docket was a rousing discussion of the Origami Experience.  Find out why the hosts are so impressed with this next version of the Touch Pack for Windows Vista UMPCs.

The OQO 02 is everywhere you turn at the CES and all 3 hosts have played with one briefly.  Is it improved over the original version?  Listen and find out.

What’s the one announcement that has JK all abuzz?  Here’s a hint- it’s from Toshiba.

Find out exactly what drop-in Valerie thinks about the UMPC platform.  Bleeps in all the appropriate places, of course.

THis show was recorded totally live in a very public setting and the background noise is much higher than we prefer but we think the impromptu nature of the show will more than make up for a little noise.

Special thanks to Podtech and Seagate for sponsoring the Bloghause, but not Robert Scoble (from Kevin).

MoTR 85 is 36:03 minutes long and is a 33.5 MB file in MP3 format.

TOPICS:
Since we’ve been prepping for CES, we took up a reader suggestion from Steve. Steve thought folks would want to know more about our backgrounds and how we ended up doing what we do, so…..here it is!

We had some technical difficulties, so bear with us on the occasional background noise and sound levels; if you’re not interested in “us”, hey, that’s OK! We’ll be back after CES if we don’t record a show while we’re actually there! :)
