Dialed In No. 209: Windows Phone 8 details leak, HTC Sense is too weak

We discuss the juicy new details of Windows Phone 8 and debate whether or not HTC should do away with its Sense skin.

This week's podcast is my first time ever hosting, so please excuse all the awkwardness as I get my sea legs going.

To compensate, I offer you a lively discussion about the new details surrounding Windows Phone 8. So far, there's word of a multicore processor in the works, as well as integration with the Windows 8 desktop and tablet operating system.

We also debate the merits of HTC's Sense skin. Some of us think it's just fine and dandy (we still get a kick out of that retro clock on the phones), but others believe it's time for a change. Especially when compared to Android's beautiful Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

And lastly, we offer some recent news headlines in the mobile industry, including purchasing details for the Samsung Galaxy S III (it's coming in May), and the Galaxy Note (it's available for preorder).
