The Verge Mobile Show 035 - February 5th 2013


Another week of big smartphone news — especially in the Blackberry space — means that we have another Verge Mobile Show to bring you. Plus, in honor of RIM renaming itself BlackBerry (because that's what everybody calls it anyway), we're renaming The Verge Mobile Show. Tune in for "Three or four guys talk about smartphones, 'The Fast and the Furious,' and the nutritional value of various vegetables" (because that's what everybody calls it anyway). There's also a small chance we'll append various other descriptors to the title, including but not limited to "orange phones, carrier spectrum, and weather apps." You'll want to join us this week, because there's been major movement in pretty much every single topic mentioned above. Tune in!
