The Verge Mobile Show is back (as if it ever left)! On this week's episode, Ross fills in for Dieter while he is on assignment, and Vlad gives a special "beta" version of the cold open. Our temporary troika discusses the rumors of a 1080p phone from HTC, which angers Chris. Vlad, meanwhile, reflects on simpler monochromatic times. And does anyone have the marketing muscle to compete with Samsung and Apple in the long term?
