Find out why

The All New Gadget Show comes home to London as Jason and Pollyanna hit the streets of the capital in search of yet more must-have tech. They start off by roaring down the Thames on a rib (a rigid inflatable boat), testing camera phones including the 41-megapixel Nokia 808 PureView, before hopping ashore and jumping on board a folding bike, a folding scooter and a skateboard that can go down stairs.

After ditching the transport tech, the pair commandeer a London bus to take some unwitting punters on a gadget tour of the capital using nothing but budget tablets, before strapping on some of the highest tech trainers and doing a spot of parkour. Also featured are information on how to boost your WiFi and a dash of digital app sketching.

    I think the Nokia 808 got a bit of an unfair rating, Yes Symbian is a bit dated but it certainly beats both the S3 and HTC in audio recording quality as well. The 808 is suitable for someone with different needs to have a descent camera instead of a flashy O/S running loads of apps.

    In episode 8 we saw the presenters using tablets on a london bus. Neither of the devices, Nexus 7 or Samsung Galaxy have this capability as they will only connect to the internet in a wifi enabled zone. This gave a wholly false impression of how they can be used. I have a Nexus 7 which is brilliant, just not that brilliant. Unless you know something I don't and there is a way of roaming internet connection that would work on a bus. Please tell.

    In episode 8 can you explain how your presenters were able to use the nexus 7 16gb & samsung galaxy on a london bus. These tablets only have connectivity to the internet via wifi and as far as I am aware buses are not wifi enabled. This gives a false impression of the devices abilities. I have a Nexus 7 and it is brilliant, but, as far as I know the 3g version is not yet available in the uk and certainly was not the tablet used at £159.00.

    Some programs I have watched the day before it was due to be aired on TV, others within minutes of being shown on the box, and still others days after being televised. Where is the consistancy in that?!!! I dont even particularly like the production or presenters of tgs, I only waych it for the gadgets.
