AAWP Insight #41: Lumia 810, exclusives
Published by Rafe Blandford at
In episode 41 of the AAWP Insight Podcast, we start with a roundup of news item that caught our interest: the announcement of Angry Birds Star Wars, the release of Podcatcher, and news of an upcoming Windows Phone handset from TCL / Alcatel. That leads to a discussion on the importance of Windows Phone 7.5 / 7.8 handsets going into 2013. Our second main discussion topic is around the business case for operator handset exclusives, prompted by the announcement of the Nokia Lumia 810 for T-Mobile USA. We finish, as usual, with an app pick from each of the team.
