We're not gonna lie -- sometimes we like to really rake the mobile muck, throw our dirtiest cards on the table. Really let the stuff fly, you know? This week, we brought Joanna Stern to the podcast to help us understand just how to stick it to RIM (even though we still have a soft spot for the misguided giant). But there's also a lot of love to be had in this podcast, mostly for T-mobile, especially its reincarnation of the phone we wish we had as tweens: the Sidekick. We have some opinions on the Verizon iPhone too, just in case you were wondering. It's all in there -- go ahead, hit the button!
