SMRPodcast #143: Somewhere on Earth

It is episode #143 of the SMRpodcast, and, this week we start off with news out of Research in Motion. According to a press release that came out November 12th, RIM is holding BlackBerry 10 launch events on January 30th, 2013. This is probably RIM’s last shot at turning things around for the the BlackBerry, and, it will be interesting to see how BlackBerry 10 is received.

Rod ordered a new HTC 8X Windows Phone 8 device, but, unfortunately, Verizon could only narrow the delivery date down to between today and eventually. Chris also had issues with his Nokia Lumia 920 orders from AT&T. Robb, however, had no issues with getting his new Windows 8 powered Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook/Tablet. As a matter off fact, he got it a few days early, and, absolutely loves the device.

We’ve got all this, our picks, and more in this weeks episode of the SMRpodcast…
