Week 88 – QotW – Samsung Galaxy S8 Event
< 1 day ago
This is the second week of our new split format, and this is the Question of the Week episode. This week's News Roundup should follow on Friday.
This week's question is "What do you make of the Samsung announcements this week?" Samsung held an event on Wednesday in New York City at which it announced its latest smartphones, the Galaxy S8 and S8+, as well as several other accessories, including updated Gear 360 and Gear VR devices, and a new mesh WiFi router-plus-IoT-hub called Connect Home. Jan, who was at the event, talks through some obvious questions about the new devices and the other announcements from today's event.
We're trying something new this week here in the show notes – we had a request to put the links here instead of just on the site, but SoundCloud is a little funny about HTML in its episode descriptions, so each link will appear as a full URL below, but hopefully this makes it easier for you to chase down the related content we link to.
