SlashGear Weekly Roundup Video – May 29, 2011

Perhaps the two biggest topics of the week, the Google Wallet announcement and Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.1 Mango unveiling, brought exciting new developments for the two mobile platforms. More speculation continued on what Apple has planned for next month's WWDC, where the company is expected to unveil the new iOS 5, OS X Lion, and possibly the iCloud---iTunes cloud music service. In anticipation, Amazon's been competing even more aggressively to campaign for its Cloud Drive and Cloud Player services. Continue after the cut for the roundup video and the pertinent links to everything covered in the video.
