"Who's it for?"
Anyone who's either just purchased or is about to purchase a top end phone or smartphone - this isn't supposed to be TV for uber-geeks or programmers, it's more 'all about smartphones for the rest of us'.
"What do I need to play The Phones Show?"
Watch via YouTube on the web via any computer or tablet or smartphone. Or grab the MP4 manually or automatically by RSS/iTunes, to play on a Windows desktop or a Mac or an iPod or a PSP or a smartphone. So that's just about everybody sorted then!
"When does it come out?"
In busy times, every week or two. When
there's less to review or cover, every two or three weeks. Meanwhile,
the weekly Phones Show Chat audio podcast
keeps a scheduled beat going
with my thoughts - and guests!
"Shot ON a smartphone? Really?"
Yes, virtually all of The Phones Show is shot (video and stills) on a phone. In previous times, I've used the Nokia N93, N86, Samsung i8910 HD, N8, Lumia 1020 and 808 PureView (the Nokia phones have always had by far the best captured audio and video quality). I wanted to demonstrate how powerful some of these modern devices are in terms of multimedia creation. The Show is the proof....
"Your Show has helped me, how can I help you?"
In many ways: by spreading the word to your friends and colleagues; by linking to The Phones Show (use http://stevelitchfield.com/) from your blog or web page; by using the small Google ads on these pages; by buying your must-have devices and accessories through Steve's Amazon Store, by asking for a free GiffGaff SIM with free credit, and, most of all, by making a small donation to help keep the show going.
Would your company like to get involved and help sponsor a programme of The Phones Show?
