Windows Phone 8, Mobile World Congress, Build, Surface LTE, Apps on Surface Geeks 57

Windows Phone 8 still dominates the news. Two Surface Geeks have brand new WP8 phones and we go over each one. We also talk about the Icon. A lot of listeners and readers picked up the Icon! We get back into some Surface chat with Apps and LTE and save the Mobile World Congress talk for the end. We all had fun with this one and it’s a little long winded but the conversation was fun.
