  1. Y’all do a great show. I really enjoy listening to you and rely on you for advice on how to my mobile life more productive and enjoyable.

    Because, like Matt, I travel a lot for work, mobile is really important. But, unlike Matt, I travel a ton to different countries. I hit 15 or 20 countries each year as do many senior executives. Consequently, it would really helpful if you would occasionally mention the geographic flexibility of devices.

    To take one example, Nokia is making a version of the 1520 for Australia (where I spend most of my time) that utilizes the LTE bands in wide use there. But that device does not work on any of the LTE bands in use in the US. And, of course, the US versions do not work on the LTE bands in use in Australia. As a result, that mobile device is not all that mobile!!!
