Welcome to episode 119 of the Ausdroid podcast! This week’s podcast was graced with the presence of an extra voice, coming to us from the USA – Evan Blass, perhaps better known as @evleaks to the Internet at large.

It seems that Samsung and Sony have new phones coming, and Motorola might have a NEXS device coming (hopefully you’ll all see what I did there). Evan suffers[Read More...]
