Get ready for a marathon podcast as Jon joins Jase and I to go over Mobile World Congress and the release of the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. We kick things off with Jase’s first impressions of the Win8 CP and the differences he has seen compared with the Developer Preview. This leads to a discussion about whether or not Microsoft’s unification strategy will truly work or if Metro has taken over too much. Eventually we make our way to this week’s announcements at MWC from ViewSonic, HTC, Sony and others. Ready, set, download!
