Podcast Q&A: BB 10 data plans? Ink in Surface RT? Console gaming v. phones?

It’s another edition of the weekly call-in show where we answer your tech questions. We start this one off with more impressions of the new BlackBerry Z10(s bbry) smartphone and then dive right in to our Q&A.
To be a part of the show, just call in and leave a voicemail at 262-KCTOFEL. If you do, we’ll play back the question on the show and answer it. Or you can tweet me at @kevinctofel on Twitter. Each week, I’ll answer as many questions as I can while keeping the podcast to a manageable amount of time: 20 to 30 minutes at most.
