Engadget Podcast 343 - 05.10.13

Get ready, folks. This week it's a party, with Ben Gilbert and Dana Wollman in the guest host seats. We start off the podcast with our initial Moto X impressions, then discuss the new Nexus 7 and Android 4.3 to keep the Jelly Bean vibe going. Then, Ben shifts us into the world of Android gaming by recapping his NVIDIA Shield review. We also highlight the positive reception of the Chromecast before getting into the likes of the HTC One mini, low-cost iPhone rumors and the ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7. Stream episode 354 of the Engadget Podcast below.

Update (08/05): We've remastered the intro so that it's less loud compared to the vocals.

Hosts: Brian Heater, Dana Wollman, Ben Gilbert

Producer: Joe Pollicino
