SMRPodcast #158: Extra Credit

Episode #158, Extra Credit of the SMRpodcast, recorded April 2nd, 2013, is online and ready for download.   Robb is back from vacation, and, much to the dismay of one Mr. Chris Ashley, the ship did not break down and Robb had a really good time.

This week we start the show off with the big Fella's final thoughts on the BlackBerry Z10.  Overall, Chris likes the phone, however, he is not a fan of the keyboard and feels BlackBerry needs to correct the random reboot issues before he can recommend the device.
They guys give their opinions on “DongleGate“, Chris gets a Nexus 7, and Robb contemplates a rumored 6.3 inch Samsung Galaxy Mega.
We've got all this, plus, our picks, in episode #158 of the SMRpodcast…
