SyrupCast 21: Chairman Handsome

On SyrupCast 21, we talk about the Nexus 6, referencing our review and our first impressions of Android 5.0 Lollipop -- is it all it's cracked up to be?

We also discuss the Sony Xperia Z3 and its Compact counterpart, and whether a resurgent demand for "small" phones is inevitable. (The answer, I believe, is yes. The review's coming next week, so be patient.)

Then we delve into BlackBerry -- dry, I know, but bear with us -- and its enterprise aspirations. BES 12BBM Meetings and more all sound boring on paper, but it's the best position the company's been in years. We also discuss the Canadian company's partnership with Samsung, which just held its own developer conference this week and announced a bevy of interesting -- and less interesting -- products and services.

We reference Microsoft's first official Lumia device branded under its own name; WIND's continued talks with Videotron; and, of course, Taylor Swift's rift with Spotify.

This is SyrupCast. Thanks for listening.
