    Windows Phone users anxious to get an early start with Windows Phone 8.1 now have access to Microsoft's Preview for Developers, letting them install the OS before OTA updates for individual models start coming down in a few months. Sure, going this route isn't without its own risks, but they've largely seemed minor in comparison to all the cool stuff WP8.1 lets you do. But now we're hearing reports of multiple problems with the 8.1 preview on one specific handset, and while they don't render the phone unusable, the headaches they stand to cause might have you thinking twice about ...

    When an avalanche of reviews is rumbling its way down your mountain, it's rarely easy to assemble a podcast team – but as we frequently remind you, the Pocketnow Weekly has never missed a week, and we'll be damned if it'll do so now. So despite the forthcoming reviews of the Samsung Galaxy S 5, Gear Fit, Gear 2, Oppo Find 7a, Nokia X, and the just-completed reviews of the ZENS Qi line, BlackBerry 10.2.1, and the Verizon HTC One M8, we're banding together behind microphones in three separate cities on two continents to bring you the news and editorials of a very busy week in mobile. ...

    We've heard a lot about the Verizon Samsung ATIV SE lately, including some leaked official press renders, as well as speculations regarding its internals. Looks like the rumors were spot on, as Verizon has made the Windows Phone available for pre-order on its website. It goes for $199.99 with a two-year contract, but if you choose not to sign on the dotted line, it will set you back $599.99. So what's inside the Samsung ATIV SE? A five-inch Full HD (1080p) AMOLED screen, 2.23GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card -- up to 64GB), 13MP ...

    Overnight, we got a little update about what to expect so far as the next wave of Windows Phone hardware launches goes, mentioning that we may hope to see retail availability for a number of new models begin on April 23. While those include some Nokia Lumia phones that we've been waiting to see launch for the better part of forever, they also mentioned a Samsung phone that's been on our radar since late last year, the rumored ATIV SE. We've been talking about it all along as Samsung's 1080p WP8 effort, but what more might we hope to expect from the phone? As we get into the home stretch ...

    For the longest time now, we've been hearing about a new Windows Phone handset from Samsung. Considering how half-hearted the manufacturer's affinity for the platform has seemed, we were surprised to see anything new at all, and were doubly shocked when the specs attached to this phone seemed so high, with things like a 1080p display. More recently, we've heard that this model may arrive as the ATIV SE for Verizon, and even got to check out a leaked render. We still haven't heard any official word about the model, but a new rumor now attempts to zero-in on its launch date. According to ...

    You know it's Sunday because of all the leaks that are popping up to get us through the weekend. After seeing the LG Lucid 3, we're now treated to a leaked official press render of another upcoming Verizon phone, this time running another OS, and made by another manufacturer. In case you forgot, there was a so-called Samsung Huron that was making the headlines not so long ago, and apparently the device above is just that. Called the Samsung ATIV SE, it is undoubtedly a follow-up to the 2012 ATIV S, with slight tweaks to the design (more Galaxy S4-ish, if you will). Aside from the usual ...
