HOSTS: Matthew Miller (Seattle) and Kevin C. Tofel (Philadelphia)

TOPICS:

  • Windows Phone 8.1 update 1 brings potential for a wider range of devices
  • Windows Phone Store passes 300,000 apps. Matt keeps using his Lumia 1520, 8.1 and Cyan help make it possible.
  • Moto X+1 leaked benchmarks suggest Snapdragon 801 – looks like this will not be another phone with mid-range specs.
  • Timex Ironman watch with 3G data – what a MotoActv successor should have been?
  • Amazon Fire Phone – not even a spark of interest from either of us
  • HP SlateBook 14 – want Android in a laptop? That’ll be $430, thank you.
  • Apple likely to announced iPhone 6 on 9 September
