Product reviews editor Michael Calore and staff writer Mike Isaac kick off the show with the week’s biggest news; Google’s proposed acquisition of Motorola Mobility Holdings. What are the implications for other hardware companies? Will the FTC allow the deal to go through? What will Android look now that Google has control of hardware, unlike before? It’s a huge development in the world of mobile, and the two Mikes attempt to cover some of the angles.
Next up on the show, staff writer Christina Bonnington drops by to talk about her experience with the new Android tablet from Fusion Garage, the Grid 10. It’s the the company’s hopeful follow up to its first huge failure of an Android slate, the Joo Joo tablet. Christina’s first take was generally positive, but Fusion Garage has a lot to prove after the Joo Joo.
