This week's Which? tech podcast takes a look at the newly launched Apple iPhone 4, as the team discusses its initial reception problems, new multitasking features and the evolution of the iPhone's design.

Which? mobile phone expert Jon Barrow joins the podcast team in the studio to talk about Apple's latest handset, its pros and cons, and his first impressions of the iPhone 4's improved camera and HD video recording and video chat capabilities.

Al Warman has the latest from the Which? Test Labs with top tips on how to buy the best headphones or earphones, and the basic types, from noise-cancelling in-ear models to DJ-style over-ear headphones. 

The Which? tech experts also discuss Microsoft's move into the Cloud, as it makes its Office software available free online for the first time. But how do Office Web Apps compare to Google Docs for ease-of-use, and is it really a replacement for your PC's word processing, spreadsheet and presentation software?

And in the weekly news round-up: 

  • iPhone 4 launch - reports of handsets losing reception when held in users' hands
  • launched - legal music download site with a charitable twist
  • Amazon updates Kindle app with multimedia
