    Dell hasn't been as famous as it used to be in the mobile space, but that doesn't change the fact that the company has brought some of the most compelling Windows-based tablets in the market. Specs alone would speak highly of these products, but the price tag behind these is just as astonishing. Dell still continues to push its products, and today the company has a new partnership to go further. Dell has just partnered with Intel to launch the world's thinnest tablet. This new Android-based tablet is the Dell Venue 8 7000, and according to the launch information, the device is just 6 mm ...

    It took Apple a crazy 5 years to finally consider increasing the screen size of its beloved iPhone from 3.5-inches to 4 with the iPhone 5. Even so, many believed that there was more opportunity for growth as Apple continued to push for the importance of one-handed usability. Yesterday's launch of the bigger iPhone 6, and the gigantic iPhone 6 Plus marks a complete contradiction to the company's mentality, and as a result, competitors begin chiming in. The Samsung Mobile crew in Philippines tweeted a photo that repeats a famous phrase from the late Steve Jobs: "No one is going to buy a big ...

    When Apple launched its MFi standard to allow for third-party headphone manufacturers to deliver higher-quality audio through the iOS Lightning port, many people thought this had everything to do with Beats. The purpose for Apple's acquisition of Beats is still a mystery that we're waiting to resolve, but we at least thought that yesterday's Apple event would shed some light, or some products that would show the integration between both companies. That wasn't the case, and still today, we see the first MFi-compatible product being announced. Phillips has just unwrapped its Fidelio M2L ...

    With Apple's launch of the Apple Watch yesterday, I'm sure we can all agree that we were left with more questions than we were left with answers. We received no run down of the device's specifications, nor did we get details on most of its technology, and even though we did get a walkthrough of its software, a lot of the basics weren't mentioned. One of these was the options for left-handed users, and specially with so much emphasis on that digital crown, though we do get some information about it today. Journalists contacted Apple about this particular question, and most of them are ...

    This has been a very interesting year for smartphone technology. Seven years ago we would’ve never thought that smartphones would be as big as they are today, nor that we’d have better display resolution on our phones, than we do on the average television set. This year 2K displays, waterproof technology, stereo speakers, aluminum, and even the emerging LTE Advanced are the new thing, even though only a few smartphone manufacturers are pulling most of these off. After seven years, I finally decided to switch the iPhone as my daily driver because of all these trends. Surely my choice ...

    Love it or hate it, iPhone day is iPhone day. This is one of the most anticipated events of the year, and Apple did what it can do best, which is try to sell its new products to you through its keynote address. Today we saw the company announce the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, two devices which were highly leaked all throughout the year. We also saw Apple announce new services like Apple Play in order to address the mobile payments sector, one that hasn't taken off since its inception under Google's leadership. And yes, there was "One more thing," the Apple Watch, which we did expect to ...

    Love it or hate it, tomorrow is probably one of the biggest days of the year for the smartphone market. Apple may not be the biggest smartphone seller in the world, but the world's most popular smartphone has belonged to Apple almost every year, since its inception in the summer of 2007. There are a ton of rumors of what to expect for Apple's September 9 event, so let's try to place all these rumors into perspective, as it seems that Apple is launching more than one product tomorrow. iPhone 6 Rumors claim that Apple is planning to change everything all over again when it comes to the ...

    We've criticized the approach that many OEMs have taken with tablets and phablets because many have decided to simply increase the display size, and very few have done a smart job at giving you an added level of usability through it. Apple and Samsung have both done an amazing job with their iPad and Galaxy Note lineup, but with the rumors of a 5.5-inch iPhone 6, you'd wonder how Apple is planning to approach its first phablet. Developer Steven Throughton-Smith recently decided to modify Apple's iOS simulator in order to portray what apps would look like on a 5.5-inch display and 2208 x ...

    We are just one day away from Apple's event where we expect the company to launch the iPhone 6. If you've been following the rumors over the last couple of weeks, you'd think the iWatch wouldn't make the cut until a future event, and it turns out that that might be wrong. New leaks claim that the iWatch will be announced tomorrow as well, but it's not until today that we get to see what it looks like. For the last couple of months, all we've seen are concept designs of the iWatch. Today we get the first leaked photos of the device's schematics, and even an extra photo of what is reported ...

    Pocketnow Daily gets an average of 300 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand.

This is the Pocketnow Daily Recap. Since we only have 3 minutes on every Daily video to go through the hottest news, the weekly recap will serve as a more extensive discussion where we also include your thoughts on the subject. Sadly, for the sake of ...

    It's pretty much confirmed that Apple will announce its next generation iPhone 6 on its September 9 event. We've even heard some interesting rumors that Apple will also launch the iWatch at the same time. What we weren't prepared for was for is for some rumors that claim that Apple plans to do the same with the iPad Air 2. KGI Securities is claiming various things about Apple's September 9th event. Among these is that Apple is planning to announce the new iPad Air at this event, and not in October as Apple has done historically. Up to this point there were no credible rumors that pointed ...
