Globally Popular Mobile Technology Podcast “techADDICTION” Adds Third Host and Re-launches as the “MobileTechRoundup” Show

Recognizing the growing public need for mobile technology news, “techADDICTION” co-hosts James Kendrick and Kevin C. Tofel add another mobile device expert. David Ciccone of the leading iPAQ enthusiast site, “Dave’s iPAQ”, joins the three-person bi-weekly show now known as “MobileTechRoundup” (MoTR).

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) October 28, 2005 — Currently enjoying an audience of tens of thousands around the world, the “techADDICTION” podcast is adding a third host, increasing the frequency of shows and re-launching independently as the “MobileTechRoundup” show. David Ciccone, owner and editor of the Dave’s iPAQ website, joins “techADDICTION” co-hosts James Kendrick and Kevin C. Tofel for the new “MobileTechRoundup Podcast”. The three mobile technology experts will record and release two 30-minute shows each week, starting with the inaugural episode on November 1, 2005.

“People are more connected and more mobile than ever,” says co-host Kevin C. Tofel. “Our goal with the new show and additional host is to bring a broader perspective on mobile technology. The public is already riding the technology curve as more people utilize mobile devices everyday, ranging from cell- and SmartPhones, Personal Digital Assistants, Tablet PC’s, iPods and numerous other small but powerful devices. Our goal is to educate and entertain our listeners by providing timely news, commentary, tips, tricks and product reviews to maximize the benefits of mobile technology.”

James Kendrick offers this insight about the MoTR Podcast: “The addition of Dave Ciccone to the show is very exciting and I am thrilled. MoTR will be an informative podcast covering all facets of mobile technology with a humorous delivery by the three hosts. Kevin, Dave and I don’t just talk about gadgets and mobile tech; we show how they can be used in innovative ways to make the listener’s life a little easier. Most gadget consumers have limited budgets and on MoTR we tell listeners what works and more importantly what doesn’t, so if we save listeners some of their hard earned money, we’ve done our jobs.”

In addition to the show launch, “MobileTechRoundup” is proud to announce an advertising partnership with Battery Geek, Inc. Battery Geek, Inc. becomes the first sponsor of the new podcast, which will feature ads and product reviews of the company’s external battery technology.

  1. Awesome.

    It’s my birthday on the 4th, I shall be away from my wife and home working and staying in a hotel. Your broadcast will be most welcome company.

    I write this while sitting with my (ancient) laptop in our living room, for the first time while actually on line. This wireless lark is fantastic. I have now overcome the problem of being in another room to my wife all evening and being accused of unsociable behaviour.

    We can chat and we can do our own thing at the same time.

    What’s more, do you know how hard it is to find a moderately priced hotel that offers broadband or even dialup access in your room? (It’d be easier to find rocking horse poo!) At least now I can stop off at an exorbitantly priced access point at a garage or similar and grab my emails.

    Cheers guys

  4. Given your track record and that I listen to Dave’s Ipaq too I am sure I won’t be disappointed.

    I am getting an Axim x51v, no cringing from Dave please, and so will be particularly interested in news and usage tips (software, accessories, etc) on this form factor. (Tablets still out of my league in the UK – though there are refurbished M205-S810 for £699 ($1,190) at http://www.cheap-it.com/Pages/refurbished-toshiba-laptops.asp ).

    Cheers guys
