    We're not even sure everyone managed to grab the Android 4.4.1 update that started rolling out to the Nexus 5, Nexus 4, and some Nexus 7 devices recently, and now Android 4.4.2 is being pushed out to pure-Androids. The update's size might vary but it is a small one (sub-2MB), and it apparently brings bug fixes as well as security enhancements to the table. The build you should expect is KOT49H and is rolling out to all Nexus devices, including last year's Nexus 7, which didn't get the 4.4.1 refresh. Among the changes there are also reports that this update will fix the SMS hack that was ...

    Most new-device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the same time. It’s a huge frenzy, commenters go nuts, and it’s a giant explosion of frantic opinion-sharing activity. For about … a day. And then it all goes away. Sure, there’s followup coverage as people find bugs and hidden features, but after that initial blast, not ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Sprint's official dates and price tag for the HTC 8XT, which promises to bring a good Windows Phone offering to the carrier. The Galaxy Note III is next as rumors have Samsung working on as many as 8 variants of the phone to satisfy carriers. Google is next as the company has fixed the security exploit found on Android, but still, the patch was only sent to partners and not end-users. New images of the iPhone 5S and budget iPhone surface and show us all the color options that will be available. We end today's show talking about rumors of a ...

    In this industry, it's an inevitability: sooner or later (and all too often, sooner) a manufacturer throws in the towel for an aging handset, deciding to no longer devote resources towards bringing it updates packed with the newest software. The latest casualty comes from HTC's 2012 lineup, as the company confirms that the One S will not receive future Android nor Sense updates. This tale got started over on HTC France's Facebook page, but it's since been confirmed as the official company line: no more One S updates. Back in February, HTC specifically named the One S as one of the Androids ...

    Yesterday, we saw Google put the special Google Play editions of the Galaxy S 4 and HTC One up for sale, giving users a chance to pick the phones up running (mostly) stock Android. One oddity that quickly came to light was that these phones had a tweaked camera app, at least compared to what we were used to from Android 4.2.2 on devices like the Nexus 4. We had already spotted the software on a phone appearing to run Android 4.3, so it was a bit surprising to see it suddenly arrive independently like this. For now, the only official way to try out the new version is to pick up a Google ...

    As much as BlackBerry can boast to you that their new operating system can run Android apps, that's not necessarily a good thing. One of our biggest disappointments after our review of the BlackBerry Z10 is that these apps are all locked to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and that means that you're stuck running anything that was optimized for an operating system that was launched three years ago. Luckily the company has just announced that this is about to get a major change with BlackBerry 10.2. Within the changes that are planned for their new upgrade, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean apps will be ...

    We recently had the opportunity to review the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, an experience we enjoyed primarily because of the device's innovative hardware: a 6.9mm-thick, 495g chassis that manages to squeeze water- and dust-resistance onto its list of features. Pocketnow is currently in the midst of reviewing the BlackBerry Q10, a peculiar blend of yesterday's design cues with a modern OS - and we're enjoying the feeling of real physical keys under our thumbs again. The third-generation Apple iPad and Microsoft's Surface RT also share space in our office, and we love the sturdy (if heavy) hardware ...

    HP hasn't really shined lately in any department, but that hasn't stopped the company from selling tons of new Envy X2s. It's been a very popular design so far, bringing probably one of the best form-factors to those in need of a Windows 8 computer. Now in an interesting twist, the company has just announced their new HP SlateBook X2 to follow on the design language of the Envy X2, with the difference that this SlateBook runs Android. This new HP SlateBook X2 is a 10-inch tablet with the much-expected Tegra 4 chip. It does become part of the Slate 7 line-up, its specs are far superior. ...

    The Android 4.2.2 roll-out process has started this week and users of the LG-made Google Nexus 4, Asus-made Nexus 7, Samsung-made Nexus 10 and Galaxy Nexus are receiving their OTA notifications as we speak (or are already enjoying the point update on their devices). Android 4.2.2 factory images are up for anyone to grab for the devices above. Make sure to download and save them in a safe place as they'll help you revert to stock should anything you do on your phone result in unwanted results. Also, those who have not yet received the OTA notification can head over to the source link and ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the iOS 6.1.1 update and what it means for the Jailbreak community. Then we move to competing grounds and talk about Android 4.2.2, which just got released. The Galaxy S IV continues, though the rumors of a Galaxy S IV mini have us more skeptical than pleased. Then we talk about Nokia's recent leak of a probable tablet coming soon. We end today's show with a minor load of confusion, as now we can't figure out what the final design of the HTC M7 will be. All this and more after the break. Stories: - iOS 6.1.1 Could Arrive Very Soon, Fixing 3G ...

    The latest update to Android 4.2 Another Flavor of Jelly Bean has started to roll out to select Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 devices. Suspiciously absent are reports of an update for Google's latest flagship device, the Nexus 4. This version, 4.2.2, is a 0.0.1 update to the operating system and weighs in around 46MB (depending on which device you're installing it on), so to say it's a "minor update" is a bit of an understatement. The code hasn't yet hit the AOSP, so custom-ROMs based on it aren't being developed just yet. In the meantime, if you own the GSM variety of the Galaxy ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Android 4.2.2 and a possible release date before Key Lime Pie comes to town. Then we talk about HTC as new rumors have the company bringing more than just another cool name for the future camera technology on the M7. The iPad is next as we found a "Radio Buy Button" we're trying to make some sense out of. Then we talk about the rumors of Apple working on an iPhablet, and yes, we dismissed it just as quick as we began. We end today's show talking about Amazon Coins and why it doesn't make sense. All this and more after the break. Stories: - ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as talk about the Sony Xperia Tablet Z and why you should care to take a look at yet another Android tablet. We then move to the Android 4.2.2 rumors, though we sadly won't celebrate the reason why it'll be launched eventually. Samsung later takes the spotlight with their Exynos 5 Octa processor and we go through some of the technical reasons why this processor isn't a crazy idea. Later we move through lots of the rumors of a cheaper iPhone coming this year and why this is not such a far-fetched idea. We end today's show with a huge Thank You to all of you for ...
