    Smartphones are great and useful tools, but until you get a bigger screen on them, they're never going to replace your laptop computer. Tablets are gaining in popularity and in functionality. They're doing so well, in fact, that many smartphone makers are pushing the limits of what can be called a "phone" by making screens bigger -- much bigger. At Pocketnow we call them "phablets". When we started we were sort of making fun of the huge-screened phones, but despite our mocking, the phrase suck -- and we learned that, when done right, phablets can be pretty awesome. But tablets and phablets ...

    Samsung's ATIV Q tablet - the hybrid device that runs both Windows 8 as well as Android - emerged as one of the more promising devices of the summer when we saw Samsung introduce it back in June. As we waited patiently for its release, however, a rumor arrived claiming that some patent issue had come to Samsung's attention that was threatening to derail the ATIV Q's release, and that there was even the possibility Samsung might shelve the product entirely. Since then, we've been anxiously awaiting any sort of update, hoping to learn of the tablet's ultimate fate. We still don't have any ...

    Back in June, Samsung threw a London event to help introduce us to phones like the Galaxy S 4 Active, Mini, and Zoom, as well as to share news of a couple new tablets. One of those, the ATIV Q, really caught our eye for a number of reasons: it had an intriguing convertible design with integrated keyboard and stand, packed a crazy high-res 3200 x 1800 display, and allowed users to jump back and forth between Windows 8 and Android, for the best of both worlds. Problem is, we haven't heard much of the tablet since, and now a new rumor suggests that patent issues have seriously derailed ...

    Last week's Samsung Premiere event in London brought us plenty of new (or nearly new) hardware, but if you're anything like me, you found the whole thing seriously lacking any big "wow" moment. That's not to say that I wasn't really interested in all this Galaxy and ATIV gear Samsung was showing off, but there just weren't any show-stoppers. The closest Samsung came to really impressing me was with the ATIV Q – when it announced the tablet's crazy-high resolution screen and its Android compatibility, I very well might have let out an audible "neat!" As you may have seen, the rest of the ...

    In the food service industry, when you're a server who's been slammed with too many customers and can't keep up with the demand, you're said to be "in the weeds." On a podcast, that same expression means something quite different. It means you've wandered so far from your intended topic (in this case, mobile technology) that you've found yourself in the far-flung wilderness talking about anything but (in this case, sports cars, British accents, and the adult film industry). But while we do spend a fair amount of time in OT land on today's Pocketnow Weekly, we still manage to get some tech ...

    There are any number of ways which Samsung could have gotten our attention with its ATIV Q tablet. If it only had that multi-mode convertible hinge, we'd still be captivated by it, as we would if it only had that crazy high-res 3200 x 1800 screen, or if its only decent feature was that ability to jump back and forth between Windows 8 and Android. Instead, Samsung has crammed all these noteworthy abilities all into one compact package. All that said, it should be no surprise that the ATIV Q emerged as one of the stars of yesterday's Samsung Premiere event. Now, the tablet sure sounds great ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Instagram Video, and what this means to the few that actually use Twitter's Vine service. NVIDIA is next as the company is shaving-off some money from the price-tag of their NVIDIA Shield. Liquid Cooling is next as both Apple and Samsung are reportedly in advanced projects that will allow future iPhones and Samsung Galaxies to offer this technology. Microsoft and Nokia make the headlines next since rumors had them working on a Nokia buy-out weeks ago. We end today's show talking about the Samsung Premiere event and all the Galaxy and ATIV ...

    We've had a busy day covering Samsung's efforts to stoke our collective imagination. We're fresh from our live coverage of the Premiere event in London, where our own Anton D. Nagy is still busily recording and uploading hands-on videos of the newest devices out of Seoul. We'll be talking about the whole suite of Galaxy and ATIV products on tomorrow's special-edition episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, but there's something I need to get off my chest first. Because I'm not quite through waxing poetic about the Samsung ATIV Q. Except this time I'm not talking about the world that is, ...

    We've just peeled our eyeballs off the live-stream of the Samsung Premiere event in London, where our own Anton D. Nagy is still busily shooting hands-on video of some of the products announced by the company today. Samsung gave us a mix of Android and Windows news at the unveiling, giving us a deeper look into the Galaxy S 4 Active and Galaxy S 4 Zoom on the Google side, and the ATIV Tab 3 and a host of notebooks and home computers on the Microsoft front. What really captured our imagination, though, in between droll one-liners from the MC and wide crane shots of the oversized stage, was ...

    We already knew much of what to expect from Samsung's London event today so far as the Android story went, leaving us to wonder about some of the ATIV side of the company's plans. Samsung came through with a number, ranging from laptops to all-in-one monitors, but our interest was focused on tablets: luckily, we got to see a couple of new ones. The ATIV Q is a convertible tablet, going from laptop mode to a regular tablet layout, and everything in between. That duality continues with the software, as it pulls the neat trick of running both Windows 8 and Android, letting you jump back and ...
