The Verge Mobile Show 033 - January 22nd, 2013


It's been a slow week for mobile news. Perhaps it's the calm before the storm of Mobile World Congress. You can feel a sense of anticipation — a sense that a lot of news will soon be announced. Companies are keeping things tight, for the most part, but there is so much going on that they are bursting at the seams. And with this type of pressure, it's impossible to avoid leaks.

Just like in your plumbing, leaks can be messy, and while we don't necessarily have to break out the mop, we do feel compelled to speculate about certain photos, and what these photos allegedly say or don't say about an upcoming product. While speculation may or may not be a productive exercise, it does allow us a chance to dream. Will one of these companies finally get it right? Only time will tell.
