galaxy-tab-7-7-viewing-angle

This week on the call in podcast we have a number of great questions around the new 128 GB iPad, cameras on smartphones and when’s the best time to ignore the rumors and upgrade your iPhone. Plus we discuss the difference between Windows RT and Windows 8 and get a better understanding of coverage areas and cost savings for Straight Talk.

Do you have a gadget question? Be a part of the show! Just call in and leave a voicemail at 262-KCTOFEL. If you do, we’ll play back the question on the show and answer it. Or you can tweet me at @kevinctofel on Twitter. Each week, I’ll answer as many questions as I can while keeping the podcast to a manageable amount of time: 20 to 30 minutes at most.
