Dialed In 150: A cell phone sesquicentennial

Dialed In has its 150th episode as Bonnie returns to San Francisco for a visit. This week it's all about new phone releases, especially if they're from Samsung.

It's a big day Dialed In for as we hit our 150th episode, Bonnie makes it back to San Francisco for a special visit, and Jessica marks the day before her birthday. We also have a lot to get through today as the usual preholiday deluge of new phones is reaching its height. As it always does, Samsung is spinning out the most new models with six handsets unveiled in just the last week. Also in the podcast, Jessica examines the minimum requirements for an Android phone, Nicole polls readers on what kind of keybaord they prefer, the first Windows Phone 7 devices go on sale, and we get to our latest reviews.
