Long time readers of any and all of our Mobile Nations sites will remember the Smartphone Round Robin. It was a cross-site editorial event where we took a break from our regular day to day beat, swapped phones, and sounded off on the competition in an unbiased fashion.

It was a great event, we loved it, you loved it, and you've been bugging us literally daily to do it up again. And we have been listening. It's coming. And soon! We have re-envisioned the event, bigger and better and more suitable to the state of mobile in 2013, and we're going beyond our in-house team this time around. Hit up the video above to get a gander at our awesome hosts! :)

This week you'll see less blogging from our EiCs as we're in NYC doing a bunch of grunt work in prep for the event that will unfold online. If you want more, follow me, Daniel Rubino of Windows Phone Central, Kevin Michaluk of CrackBerry, as well as Phil Nickinson of Android Central, and Rene Ritchie of iMore, are joined by John P and Cali Lewis of Geek Beat and we'll drop more hints throughout the week.

Ok, that's it. we've already said too much. Stay tuned tuned to all of our sites, follow us on Twitter and G+, and look out for #TM13 for more!
