Podcast - 10th September 2014
James Rosewell and Mark Bridge return from their summer break with a podcast full of smartphones and smart watches.
As well as products from Samsung, Sony, Microsoft, Motorola, HTC and Kazam, there's talk of Opera's new browser deal, a potential change on the UK high street... and a mobile app that connects to a Bluetooth toothbrush for improved toothpaste coverage.
Apple has announced two new handsets today: the iPhone 6, which has a 4.7-inch display, and the iPhone 6 Plus with a 5.5-inch display.
As well as the two new phones, Apple showed off the Apple Watch, which many had expected to be called the iWatch.
Bullitt Mobile, the company behind the Cat Phones brand, has announced a new rugged 4G smartphone.

A new study from mobile marketing and analytics firm Localytics shows that Apple’s most popular mobile phone is currently the iPhone 5, not the iPhone 5c or 5s that followed it.
Similarly, the most-seen Apple tablet is the iPad 2, which was released in 2011.
Google has committed to refunding at least $19 million (£11.8 million) in in-app charges raised by children using applications on Android devices.
The complaint was raised by the US Federal Trade Commission earlier this year, claiming that children using mobile apps downloaded from the Google Play store had bought additional products and services without the authorisation of the account holder.
