Dialed In 195: CTIA hangover with a dash of iPhone

Yes, it's that time of year again: time for the annual Apple iPhone harvest. This time, it's the iPhone 4S, which looks a lot like the old model, but with some pretty substantial improvements. We also discuss last week's CTIA trade show where we saw several new Android handsets, and Jessica witnessed phone destruction at the hands of Nokia. We also look forward to tomorrow's triple-event extravaganza: BlackBerry DevCon, the Motorola/Verizon event in New York, and the Samsung/Google event in Hong Kong. And last but not least, we say a fond farewell to Bonnie Cha and Kent German, as they become occasional hosts instead of regular ones.
