Rumor Has It, Ep. 10: Hey HTC! We'll be your flagship phone (podcast)

On this week's show, we celebrate our 10th episode, give the 15-inch MacBook Air the 2-minute duck timer, get inspired (and sickened) at Acer's leaked Iconia Tab promo video, and if Apple releases an iPad 3D, we quit.

That's it. The month is up, and Karyne is losing the betting war.

But you know who's really losing the war? Acer, with its ridiculous leaked video promo for the Acer Iconia Tab A200. What's with that barfy piano music?

Also this week, we celebrate our 10th episode, laugh at HTC's obvious obviousness, give the 15-inch MacBook Air the 2-minute duck timer, and determine that if Apple releases an iPad 3D, we quit.

What do you guys think? Is HTC going to pick itself up, and offer a flagship phone in 2012? Will the iPad 3D come to fruition? Let us know in the comments!

Next week Karyne has to do something embarrassing, so leave us a comment, send us an e-mail or tweet, or leave us a message and let us know what she should do!
