Engadget Mobile Podcast 105 - 09.25.2011

Trent Wolbe

A big week, a very big week for sure. Look at all of those phones, look at all of those news items. We've brought along our good-natured, well-rounded, and slightly-pottymouth'd associate Mr. Christopher Trout to help us make sense of it all with an edgy feel. It's a good one, if we do say so ourselves. Sit back, crack open a vintage flip phone, and enjoy the show.
