See that picture up top? That's me trying to figure out a) which flight I'm about to miss, b) which event is next, and c) how I got stuck in the Matrix. And why's that? Because this week marks the first in what will no doubt be several crazy summer weeks in mobile and at Mobile Nations. For my part, I leave for Orlando today to join Kevin Michaluk and what feels like most of the CrackBerry nation for BlackBerry Live 2013. I'll be there in my Mobile Nations producer capacity to help broadcast and record not only CrackBerry Live TV -- we'll be streaming straight from the show floor! -- but also to continue working on #TM13...
Speaking of which, we've launched the official teaser page in all its teasing glory. You can sign up to learn more about our smartphone round-robin re-imagined, and since this is Mobile Nations we're talking about, you know that there'll be some insane karmic rewards coming your way, so you probably want to sign up sooner rather than later...

But that's only part of the stuff headed your way this week. We've also got:
Phil Nickinson and Jerry Hildenbrand from Android Central off to Google IO, where they should get a ton of Android and Chrome news, and we may even get some updated iOS apps. Watch for Google's big keynote on Wednesday. 2011 saw a ton of stuff get announced that never materialized, but 2012 -- Nexus Q aside -- showed a new, more disciplined focus. Here's hoping this year is more of that.
Daniel Rubino from Windows Phone Central is off to London for a Nokia Windows Phone event. There are rumors of new hardware, new software, and more.
That raises the question: with iMore's new, all-Apple focus, what kind of coverage do you want to see? Should we treat Mac and OS X the same way we treat iPhone, iPad, and iOS, or do you want to see it handled differently? Also, Google is really stepping up their iOS game, how much of Google IO do you want to see us pull in here? Let me know!
