    This year's Consumer Electronics Show from Las Vegas has come and gone. As usual, we've been both on-site bringing you coverage from events as well as the show floor, and here on Pocketnow, keeping you up to date with what's going on in the mobile world. For some the show has been excellent; for others it has been a letdown. We can't compare CES to a specialized mobile event like MWC (maybe with IFA); still, our experience from past years has taught us to expect certain things to happen at CES. They might or might not have happened in a straightforward way but there was a lot of innovation ...

    Veni, vidi, vici! We were looking forward to CES 2013, pretty much like we're always looking forward to trade shows where there's a possibility of seeing new and exciting things from and related to the mobile world. Good or bad as it was, this year's Vegas show is just one of many to come and, probably the biggest problem related to CES is the fact that it is followed shortly by MWC, a show related to mobile and only mobile. We're seeing companies slowly moving away from shows to announce their gadgets, following Apple's lead, but even those companies who are show-centric have probably ...

    We got a chance to look at Samsung's ATIV Smart PC and Smart PC Pro back at the IFA in August, and now it's time for some of that hardware to start finding a home on US carriers. We go hands-on with the Smart PC as it will come to AT&T as part of this year's CES coverage. Running Windows RT, the ATIV Smart PC runs an Intel Atom SoC at 1.5GHz, has 2GB of RAM, and features a 11.6-inch 1366×768 display. These are the same specs we saw four months ago, and really all that's changed here is the inclusion of the LTE modem for wireless data service on AT&T's network. Just like the ...

    Samsung made a bold move to bring back the stylus in the form of an S-Pen on the initial Galaxy Note; fast forward to today and the Galaxy Note II employs it and so does the Galaxy Note 10.1. All Android devices, right? Well, if the video below shows information which will turn out to be true Samsung will bring the S-Pen (and its respective S-Note application) to Windows 8. The Samsung ATIV Smart PC in the video below not only seems to have an S-Note variant (pretty much the same as the application from Android) but it also shows an included S-Pen to take advantage of it. It is holstered ...
