Telstra unleashes 5G gadgets, Apple unveils new iPod Touch: Vertical Hold Episode 230

In 2019, who wants an iPod Touch? I’ve got a pretty good idea who.

Vertical Hold is brought to you by NetComm

In this week’s show, we’re joined by Leigh Stark from Pickr to talk through why the ACCC is taking Sony to task for its PlayStation refund policies. We’re also looking at the new, much cheaper iPhone alternative — the Apple iPod Touch. Why did Apple bring back the iPod Touch after a 4 year hiatus? I’ve got a pretty good idea why.

Also, this week was when Telstra’s 5G went live for the nation. Well, live for some very tiny patches of coverage across the nation, anyway. We’ve gone hands-on with the HTC 5G Hub, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and the Oppo Reno 5G to see whether 5G really delivers on the hype.
