Ausdroid Podcast MWC Edition — Episode 1 — The calm before the storm

One of the things we undertook to do as part of our Mobile World Congress coverage this year was a nightly podcast going over the things we’ve seen during our daily travels, and we’re now at the end of Saturday 25 February (Barcelona time) which means you’re waking up on Sunday morning back home.

To ease you into Sunday, and into our MWC coverage, we’re proud to present the first episode of our special MWC edition of the Ausdroid Podcast. In tonight’s episode, we look through the lead-up to MWC 2017, as well as TCL’s BlackBerry KEYone launch which took place earlier this evening in Montjuic.

You can listen here, on the website, using our SoundCloud embedded player, for those who’d like to listen the old fashioned way, the download links will be available soon.

Chris Rowland   Editor and Publisher

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.

Top stuff gentlemen. Looking forward to giving these a listen each day (if you manage to muster the energy at the end of your day to press record). I like the casual vibe of this podcast, too.

Definitely eager to see what Huawei bring to the table in terms of Android Wear (unlike @duncan_j:disqus I’m looking forward to a more “sport” style). Hopefully they launch the damn thing here in Australia!

Looking forward to hearing your views over the next few days. Wonder how popular the new Blackberry will be. As you said they are almost reliant on businesses buying them for there staff. Not sure many businesses concerned about security allow for BYOD.

Can’t help but think BlackBerry might be on to something with what they’ve created here. It’s not at all unimpressive in the hand.
