Amazon’s Fire Phone is definitely different than what’s out there. But is it better?

That’s our main topic in the news segment of this week’s GeekWire radio show, including my initial thoughts after spending some hands-on time with the upcoming device from Jeff Bezos & Co. We delve into the implications of features including dynamic perspective and Firefly.

I’m joined for this segment by Josh Kerns of and KIRO Radio. Josh is also the host of the show Seattle Sounds, and he offers his thoughts on this week’s big music news from T-Mobile and Rhapsody.

Listen to the show using the audio player below or directly via this MP3 file.

Later in the show, my colleague John Cook and I are joined by writer and number-cruncher Tim Ellis for a conversation about topics including video games and real estate technology.
