There's lots to talk about in this week's episode of The Dog Pound. First up, we have a couple of release dates for the Windows Phone 8 update, one of them straight from the mouth of Nokia CEO Stephen Elop. We're also hearing a more solid launch date for the Microsoft Surface, Microsoft's answer to the iPad. There's been a lot of anticipation and excitement surrounding these two announcements but will they be enough to keep Microsoft in the mobile game? We'll have to wait and find out. In other news, we have a rumored launch date for the next iPhone as well as a pieced-together model of what it could look like. Some people seem to be disappointed by the design. What do you think? Do you like the new(ish) design? Leave your comments below about this and everything discussed in this week's episode of The Dog Pound.
