After a brief sojourn, TechCentral’s podcast is back with an information-packed show. This week, your hosts Duncan McLeod and Craig Wilson talk about Google’s US$12,5bn acquisition of Motorola Mobility and consider the implications for the ongoing software patent war and for third-party device manufacturers that use the Android operating system.
Also in the show, we look at Nokia’s introduction of a free live traffic service in SA, consider Cell C’s 2010 financial results, look at how Neotel is performing in the retail consumer market and consider whether Nokia will be successful in its attempts to get local mobile operators to offer its users fixed-cost data plans similar to Research in Motion’s BlackBerry Internet Service.
Lastly, we look at Windows Phone 7 “Mango” and asked whether, with the upcoming Windows 8, Microsoft has finally snapped out of its funk.
We’re also giving away two copies of Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 for Windows this week, so listen to the show for details of how to win those. The e-mail address to use for the competition is info at techcentral dot co dot za.
