Leaked Windows Phone 8 devices; Render of Google Nexus tablet; Microsoft Surface official and more!
Welcome to this week's episode of The Dog Pound. Get ready for another quick round-up of the latest news from the past week. Microsoft dominated the headlines last week with the announcement of the Surface tablets and a sneak peak of Windows Phone 8, both of which are set to release this fall. Windows Phone 8 brings support for multi-core processors, HD displays, and SD cards, as well as some new software features like an improved home screen. The Surface tablet is poised to go right up against the iPad, but time will tell if Microsoft has what it takes or if this is just another failed attempt at the market. This week's episode also includes the segment Where's My Update? so make sure you catch that to see when your phone will get the latest Android update. All of this and more in this week's episode of The Dog Pound.
