“Smartphones, tablets, wearables and other gadgets you only dreamed of when you were a kid.” It’s more than just the introduction to our award-winning podcast: it’s everything we’re most passionate about at Pocketnow.
With over a decade of experience helping readers choose the right portable devices, we’re one of the oldest publications devoted exclusively to mobile technology – and with an audience of over 7 million a month across pocketnow.com and our YouTube channel, we’re also one of the largest.
Through it all, one goal has remained the same: to provide top-notch news, editorial, review and video content to mobile enthusiasts – veteran and newcomer alike. Apple or Android, Lumia or Lenovo, GSM or CDMA: whatever your particular flavor of mobile, you’ll find it at Pocketnow.
The Pocketnow Team
Anton D. Nagy (Romania)

Given his background, and knowing his potential, something tells us he will succeed this time too! Stick around!
Michael Fisher (USA)
Michael Fisher has followed the world of mobile technology for over ten years as hobbyist, retailer, and reviewer. A lengthy stint as a Sprint Nextel employee and a long-time devotion to webOS have cemented his love for the underdog platforms of the world. In addition to serving as Pocketnow’s Editorial Director, Michael is a stage, screen, and voice actor, as well as co-founder of a profitable YouTube-based business. He lives in Boston, MA.
Jaime Rivera (Honduras)
Jaime has been a fan of technology since he got his first computer when he was 12, and has followed the evolution of mobile technology from the PDA to everything we see today. As our Multimedia Manger, he’s been in-charge of growing our YouTube hobby into one of the biggest video channels in the industry. When he’s not building one of our videos, or filming our Pocketnow Daily, he can be found in his second biggest passion, which is running and fitness.
Stephen Schenck (USA)
Chief News Editor
Stephen has been writing about electronics since 2008, which only serves to frustrate him that he waited so long to combine his love of gadgets and his degree in writing. In his spare time, he collects console and arcade game hardware, is a motorcycle enthusiast, and enjoys trapping blue crabs. Stephen’s first mobile device was a 624 MHz Dell Axim X30, which he’s convinced is still a viable platform. Stephen longs for a market where phones are sold independently of service, and bandwidth is cheap and plentiful; he’s not holding his breath. In the meantime, he devours smartphone news and tries to sort out the juicy bits.
Joe Levi (USA)
Joe graduated from Weber State University with two degrees in Information Systems and Technologies. He has carried mobile devices with him for more than a decade, including Apple’s Newton, Microsoft’s Handheld and Palm Sized PCs, and is Pocketnow’s “Android Guy”. By day you’ll find Joe coding web pages, tweaking for SEO, and leveraging social media to spread the word. By night you’ll probably find him writing technology and “prepping” articles, as well as shooting video.
Taylor Martin (USA)
Based out of Charlotte, NC, Taylor Martin started writing about technology in 2009 while working in wireless retail. He has used BlackBerry off and on for over eight years, Android for nearly five years, iOS for four years, and has experimented with both webOS and Windows Phone. Taylor has reviewed countless smartphones and tablets, and doesn’t go anywhere without a couple gadgets in his pockets or “nerd bag.” In his free time, Taylor enjoys playing disc golf with friends, rock climbing, and playing video games. He also enjoys the occasional hockey game, and would do unspeakable things for some salmon nigiri.
Adam Z Lein (USA)
Adam has had interests in combining technology with art since his first use of a Koala pad on an Apple computer. He currently has a day job as a graphic designer, photographer, systems administrator and web developer at a small design firm in Westchester, NY. His love of technology extends to software development companies who have often implemented his ideas for usability and feature enhancements. Mobile computing has become a necessity for Adam since his first Uniden UniPro PC100 in 1998. He has been reviewing and writing about smartphones for Pocketnow.com since they first appeared on the market in 2002.
Adam Doud (USA)
Contributing Editor / Social Media Manager
Adam joined the tech world after watching Jon Rubenstein demo the most epic phone ever at CES 2009. He is webOS enthusiast, Windows Phone fan, and Android skeptic. He loves the outdoors, is an avid Geocacher, Cubs/Blackhawks fan, and family man living in Sweet Home Chicago, where he STILL hosts monthly webOS meetups (Don’t call it a comeback!).
Rithvik Rao (USA)
Rithvik is a News Editor here at Pocketnow, currently a student living in California. He fell in love with tech at an early age after messing with the HTC G1, and is now studying application development to further fuel his love for tech.
