Engadget Mobile Podcast 197 - 12.19.13

It's been a hot second, but we're back with your host Brad Molen and guest Myriam Joire for a year-in-review episode. It's been a wild ride with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 picking up the processing pace, Motorola joining the smartphone market with renewed vigor and John Legere's refusal to let crazy get in the way of good ideas. Those on a budget could get quality in more ways than one and if the sky was the limit, you could get that too. And yes, Moto G received a KitKat update, but we didn't notice since it arrived while we were busy recording this amazing podcast just for you! So, if everyone's in, the Engadget Mobile Podcast is about to begin -- whenever you're ready, of course.

Hosts: Brad Molen

Guest: Myriam Joire

Producer: Jon Turi
