New Samsung and Microsoft smartphones aim low on CNET UK podcast 417

The long-awaited Tizen smartphone, the cheapest Lumia and the new series of "Game of Thrones" are among the treats heading our way -- but we wave goodbye to Windows 7.

It's all go in the bustling airport of technology: landing in arrivals is the long-delayed Tizen phone from Samsung, along with the cheapest Microsoft Lumia yet and a new series of "Game of Thrones". In departures we're seeing off Windows 7, while David Cameron wants to know if you have anything to declare.

The Cam has a plan to ban encrypted communications, which could affect WhatsApp, SnapChat and the like -- unless it's just blatant, baseless electioneering of course.

We've been talking about Tizen for a while, and the Z1 is the first Tizen smartphone from Samsung -- but only in India. Microsoft's latest smartphones, the Lumia 435 and 532 , are also aimed at emerging markets.

Microsoft wants you to trade up from Windows 7, ending mainstream support for the popular operating system this week. And Apple wants you to trade up to headphones that charge your iPhone with a new batch of Lightning headphones.

And finally, a bit of good news: when so Brits won't have to pirate wait. For all this and more, hit play and enjoy!
