It’s been a big week in news and our host Marc Perton is joined by Dana Wollman and Peter Rojas to sort through the details. Apple focused on the tablet-size sweetspot with their iPad mini Retina, but will the steep pricing prove to be too precious? Peter muses about the meaning behind Apple’s “space” gray nomenclature, Dana hashes out the details on Microsoft’s Surface 2 line and Nokia’s new tablet, and the crew discuss the implications of John Sculley’s rumored bid for BlackBerry. Could it prove to be a rally cry or a death knell for the dark fruit? There’s no certainty on that, but we do know that Peter will definitely not be in costume for next week’s show. So big up your brain with a heaping helping of tech after the break in this week’s episode of the Engadget Podcast.
