Optus unleashes 5G, Apple’s AirPods go Pro, Huawei launches the Google-free Mate 30 Pro: Vertical Hold – Episode 253

Optus “launches” 5G, Huawei “launches” the Huawei Mate 30 and Apple’s AirPods Pro annoy the heck out of me due to that wacky pluralisation in the latest episode of Vertical Hold!

Vertical Hold is brought to you by Casa Systems.

Joining myself and Adam Turner this week is Leigh Stark from Pickr to talk through the details of Optus’ local 5G launch, and how you have a launch for products you’ve been selling for some time. We’re also looking at Huawei’s Mate 30 Pro Australian launch, and how you do a launch.. that’s also a prize… that’s also not-quite-a-full-Android-phone.

Then we go hands on — ears-on, strictly speaking — with Apple’s new AirPods Pro to see if they’re more a fashion statement or a really worthwhile pair of noise cancelling buds.
