Mobile Industry Review Show – Week 39

Hello, hello!

We are most definitely BACK this week — back in London after the international shows we’ve been publishing over the last two weeks. The team is in one place. In fact they’re positively beaming with excitement.

In this week’s show:

– We visit the LG Renoir launch and take a look at the handset ( 00:27 )
– We talk to some LG chaps about the Renoir ( 09:23 )
– We chat to some other bloggers at the LG event ( 12:09 )
– We head to Helsinki to hear Rafe Blandford discuss the Samsung Innov8
(The S60 Samsung handset) ( 16:10 )
– James Whatley flies to Las Vegas and brings us his view of the Nokia E71 ( 13:52 )
– We preview the G1 Google Phone (we’re seeing that this coming Wednesday) ( 22:18 )
– And, of course, we’ve got *FREE STUFF*. Lots of free stuff. ( 28:02 )
