65Bits Episode 126: Month of Smartphones 5 - The Summary

With Jerrick finally back from the UK, we can finally conclude the month of Smartphones! We’re gonna compare all the 4 platforms and hopefully help you decide which is the best platform for you! Not before we talk about Steve Job’s return, the trademarking of the Tweet, and how the Amazon Kindle and the Palm Pre might just be that much closer to Singapore! And remember, the Samsung Jet is NOT a smartphone…

Daniel Tsou is our fabulous host, who decides mostly what we talk about and basically calls the shots, Yes, he does. I, writer of this bio on Mr Tsou is very much afraid that by commiting this post to words, I will be dragged off in the night by a black Truck, or a Segway more like. Other than that, Daniel is tall, lived for a period of time in Venezuela and Spain, and is enthusiastic for all things tech.
