We’re answering another listener question this week - a voicemail from the Voicemail Podcast team. They asked for our views on the state (and future) of all things ‘virtual reality’ so we discuss the products they’ve tried; the (important?) difference between ‘augmented’ and ‘virtual’ reality; and the likelihood of either being the hit many big investors anticipate.

Also, listen to hear how you can vote on the ‘best smartphone available’ and have a chance to win the one you vote for.

Many thanks +Rafe Blandford. The lack of Google apps puts me off getting a Windows Phone.

Usual round the product shots, but then some extras of the camera module and the device internals.

Focus on the device as a smartphone, rather than just a super camera. Plenty of camera coverage to come though.

Third episode of the new season.
This week we re-visit the battle for 3rd place in the battle of the eco-systems... Is anyone winning and are Nokia or Blackberry the only players to consider? Are Firefox, Ubuntu or Jolla real contenders or could Android fragment into competing strands? The team talk about the crucial part apps play in equation - reflecting on 'quality vs quantity' - and Rafe is sacked as 361's pop-culture correspondent for not knowing who Daft Punk are.

Such clever innovation from Nokia on the screen. Always surprised more hasn't been done here before, given it what you look at every day on your phone.

Managed to go here when jet lagged , sort of by accident. Food nothing special but was efficient service. Peaceful atmosphere interrupted by occasional jungle sounds and stampeding elephants (really).

Friendly and knowledgeable staff with all the latest products to demo and buy. The pricing isn't always the best, but assured of good service and easy to take things back and get support for products regardless of whether they were bought there or not. Very handy for travellers and tourists.
