    At Pocketnow, we have a responsibility to try the new, the fresh, and the weird - and that latter swamp is exactly the one Managing Editor Anton D. Nagy waded into with his recent review of the ASUS Fonepad - the tablet with an earpiece. Or the phone with a tablet screen. Whatever you want to call it, we've covered it - and Tony has some thoughts about using a seven-inch smartphone in this edition of one of your favorite tech podcasts. After we clear the giant-phone convo, we've got more to say. Lots more. And, doubtless to the relief of thousands, very little of it involves Samsung's ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Windows Phone 8 GDR2 and a a possible release date along with some billboards that show us what the Nokia Lumia 928 is all about. Then we move to HTC as the red HTC One shows itself in the UK, along with the fact that HTC has improved in sales this month when compared to last month. Then we go through the BlackBerry R10 being compared the Q10, just to make your choice for either much easier since the R10 is just ugly. Later we go through the leaks of a mysterious LG phone we assume to be the Optimus G2, and then we talk about the reports that ...

    Last week brought us a fresh look at a not-yet-announced BlackBerry 10 model, the hardware QWERTY-packing R10. This wasn't the first time we saw that guy pop up, and from what we know about it, it was sounding like it could be a future budget-priced alternative to the higher-end Q10. Just what kind of cuts could BlackBerry make to bring the price down? We get somewhat of an idea today, upon a leak delivering not just some new BlackBerry R10 pics next to a Q10, but a run-down on the model's specs. Make no mistake, even if the R10 is to be a cheaper option than the Q10, it could still have ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the recent patents that reveal a Street-View like service coming to maps on iOS. Then we talk about the Nokia Catwalk, and the good and bad things revealed on its specs. Then it's pre-order day starting with T-Mobile USA bringing their iPhone 5, then Samsung Bringing their Galaxy Note 8.0 to the UK. Then we've got BlackBerry Q10 pre-orders in the UK followed by some R-Series rumors that underwhelm. We end today's show talking about HTC, first because of their pre-orders on AT&T and Sprint, and second because their Developer Edition is now ...

    As expected, it was only a matter of time before BlackBerry made their Q2 promise with the BlackBerry Q10, and yes, we hate all these "Qs" as well. The company was really mysterious about the launch date of this device, and it could be arguable that they wanted to make sure the Z10 took off before shipping another handset to the market. As of today, pre-orders for the Q10 are available at Carphone Warehouse, and even though there are is not a specific date for shipping, the store confirms that it'll reach your doorstep on the end of April. For UK customers, this device will be sold to ...

    The BlackBerry Z10 is a nice introduction to the world of BlackBerry 10, but for many old fans of BlackBerry, the Q10 with its hardware keyboard may be the more desirable device. We're looking for the international retail launch of the Q10 to occur sometime in April, but have heard that the US wouldn't see the Q10 for itself until another eight to ten weeks after it hits stores abroad. That could place its availability out as far as June, but a new rumor suggests that at least one US carrier would offer the Q10 sooner, with rumors that T-Mobile plans to start selling the phone in May. N4BB ...

    It should hardly come as a surprise when a smartphone is available in another country before the US; by this point, we're all painfully aware of how paranoid US carriers are about the dreaded demon-possessed smartphone that's going to bring their networks to a halt, and the painfully slow certification processes they employ to vet models for operation. In that light, the waits that BlackBerry fans in the US face for the arrival of the Z10, and months later the Q10, don't even feel like news. But still, we had so much hope that BlackBerry might "pull an Apple" and see its new hardware make ...

    Last week, with the launch of BlackBerry 10, we learned that while some nations would be getting the Z10 straight away, or at least in the very near future, BlackBerry fans in the US would have quite a bit of a wait on their hands, with the phone not arriving until March. Carrier leaks have suggested that the US won't even get a break and see the phone in early March, but be waiting until nearly April. Of course, the Z10 isn't the only BB10 handset on the horizon, and we also learned that BlackBerry would be releasing the hardware keyboard Q10 sometime in April. We suppose it shouldn't be ...

    Dreaming about a big 4.7-inch BlackBerry 10 smartphone? Don't count it on it showing up anytime soon, as in a follow-up Q&A session to this morning's BlackBerry 10 launch event, CEO Thorsten Heins confirmed that the screen configurations used on the new Z10 and Q10 models will be those the company sticks with for future BB10 handsets. That means a 4.2-inch widescreen 1280 x 768 option, and a square 720 x 720 3.1-inch screen for the company's QWERTY models. While that's going to make things simple for developers, and help create an iconic look for BlackBerry 10 models, we can see how ...

    Today's BlackBerry event is more than just about a platform launch: it's about new hardware! We've been looking forward to two BlackBerry 10 handsets, the full-touch Z10, and a hardware-QWERTY model we thought would be the X10. Well, a good event could always use a few surprises, and that keyboard model turns out to be the Q10, instead (Q for QWERTY, get it?). Unlike the BlackBerry Z10 with its widescreen 4.2-inch display, the Q10 goes for a smaller square screen to make room for the keyboard. The Q10's rear panel is covered by what the company calls a glass-weave structure, which ...
