What are we playing with /watching/reading this week?
Bill – Nexus 7, Halo REACH Dave – Girl with the Dragon Tattoo extended version (Swedish version on Netflix)
Geoff – Breaking Bad Season 4, Falling Skies, Conan, The IT Crowd, HAVE YOU SEEN THIS?
I’m about a month away from upgrading my phone.
But I’m split between the Galaxy Nexus and the Galaxy Note.
The Note is attractive to me because of its huge screen and battery.
Whichever one I choose, I’ll be stuffing in a double sized battery.
Having 5 amps in my pocket just sounds juicy.
But I am a bit nervous about going back to 2.3 after having 4.0 on my Nexus S for several months.
The Note will fit my pocket and either of them will require two handed use as my hands size limit is 4 inches anyway.
Also the Nexus only comes in 16 gig flavour here, whereas the Note has room for SanDisk’s new 64 gig MicroSD (yes people have tested it with success) on top of the internal storage.
I do sound like a Note buyer don’t I?
Still love your show, and I hope you have some advice for me.

This week on Simulcast 138, we’re not at CES and we’re pretty bummed. However, we have newsreaders and we’re ready to talk about all the fabulous news from CES. We have a special guest, and we should have one of our GGN cohorts calling in live from CES!
Hey Simulcasters – quick question… have you used the Amazon Kindle app on an Android tablet that’s not running Honeycomb/ICS?
We’re looking at getting the Lenovo Thinkpad A1, mainly as a compromise (I want to get a Kindle, the wife wants a tablet that isn’t a slow piece of crap… we’d gotten her mum the Thinkpad for Christmas, and so far so good). I’m just wondering whether it blows up to full screen – i.e. more lines per page – or whether it just has the same number of lines as on the mobile phone app, just in much bigger text?
