Hi everyone, welcome to what is likely the final episode of 0G, A History of Forgotten Phones! We are wrapping up our limited-run podcast with a special bonus episode on tablets. Yes, there were plenty of weird and wonderful tablets from produced in the years before (and even after) the iPad!
For this episode we take a look back at Intel's Web Tablet, Microsoft's Windows XP Tablet PC Edition and Windows Smart Display, the Nokia 770, the Pepper Pad 3, the ill-fated Crunchpad/Joojoo, the original Samsung Galaxy Tab, the HP Touchpad, the BlackBerry PlayBook, and the Motorola Xoom.
0G is hosted by two people who were there: Christie Pitts (now at Backstage Capital), who started her career selling phones at a Verizon store, and Peter Rojas (now at Betaworks Ventures), founder of Gizmodo, Engadget, and gdgt.
Want to contact us? Christie is @imchristiepitts and Peter is @peterrojas on Twitter. We'd love to hear your thoughts on the show.
