Engadget Eurocast 053 - 1.30.14

The euro crew is back and Dan's got a new haircut. If you listen closely you can hear the improvement it makes. The freshly groomed Mr. Cooper is joined by Jamie and Sharif to discuss Samsung's arrival on high streets across Europe, Sony's super-slim Vita release and Lenovo's acquisition of Motorola's handset business. Other choice bits from this episode: Sharif considers kickstarting Nintendo's Android gaming division, Jamie's mum has a Wii and according to Dan, Norwich is one of England's biggest cities. All the fun is packed into the streaming links below, so open up your ears, your heart and your wallet (if you're so inclined) and enjoy another brash yet beautiful episode of the Engadget Eurocast.
