Podcast - 25th June 2014
This week's podcast covers the launch of the first Amazon smartphone and the introduction of Google Glass to the UK.
We also talk about new WiFi-powered voice services from EE and Three, plans to reduce mobile 'black spots', BlackBerry's app partnership, smartphone theft, 4G innovation... and rechargeable trousers.
BlackBerry says it’ll make the Amazon Appstore available on BlackBerry 10 smartphones from this autumn, when version 10.3 of the BB10 operating system is due to be launched.
It’s a move that’ll let BlackBerry focus more on developing enterprise and productivity applications.
