    The Nokia Lumia 830 may or may not be "the affordable flagship," but that doesn't mean it hasn't captured the attention of Windows Phone fans across the globe. We're fairly sure some of said fans are based here in the US, and a subset of that group also uses AT&T. If you find yourself in that small group, you're in luck for sure – AT&T has just announced that it'll begin stocking the Nokia Lumia 830 this year. The 830 features specs like a 10MP PureView imaging unit, and integrated wireless charging. It ships with the latest version of Windows Phone, Lumia Denim (and we thought ...

    The Moto 360 may be met with availability issues right now, but we're hoping that'll all clear up soon – and when those problems get sorted out and the dust clears, there'll be an additional retailer stocking the Moto 360: AT&T. The wireless carrier has revealed its plans today to carry the Android Wear-powered timepiece as an accessory. AT&T joins a growing list of Motorola, Google Play, Best Buy, and Verizon Wireless as one of the places you can grab a Moto 360, but because of the supply/demand levels right now (presumably), we don't yet have a date or a price for the version ...

    Many of us here at Pocketnow have been quite disappointed with the lack of love for "mini" phones – they're generally crammed with mid-range specs, don't get wide carrier adoption, and lag behind in terms of support and updates. The HTC One Mini update to Sense 6 is long overdue according to many, but it's finally here for AT&T users. The update, which weighs in at a hefty 550MB, brings quite a few changes to the aging device. Apart from the base Sense 6 features, there are updates to the Gallery and Camera app, the addition of Extreme Power Saving Mode, and other miscellaneous ...

    Even though the Galaxy Note 4 is only days away at this point, Samsung's Galaxy S5 is still the company's flagship for the time being. And that means support and update love, the latter of which is now being shared with AT&T-branded Galaxy S5s everywhere. What's new in this AT&T Galaxy S5 update? Let's take a look. The update does not bump up the Android operating system version of the phone, but is rather a compilation of a bunch of small fixes. Most importantly, there are security patches involved, and while we don't have further details regarding which issues the update ...

    Waiting for the Asus PadFone X to launch on AT&T was rather disappointing. Both companies kept promising the launch, and it took longer than most people were willing to wait. As a result, even though we found this product to be "decent" in our review, it was a little too late to keep the amount of buzz that surrounded it. What's interesting is that it seems that Asus and AT&T weren't finished with what was started, and new rumors point to more products in the pipeline. The Asus PadFone X mini just stopped by the FCC, and judging by the cellular bands that it supports, it's clear ...

    When the HTC One M8 for Windows went official this morning, many breathed a sigh of frustration upon hearing that the handset would be exclusive to Verizon Wireless's cellular network here in the United States. But information out of AT&T this evening suggests that this exclusive won't be around for too long, as the carrier has confirmed that it will be stocking HTC One M8 for Windows units of its own later this year. Pricing and availability details are scarce at the moment, though we do have our first look at what the phone will look like when it makes the leap to Big Blue. It's the ...

    Microsoft has been doing a great job in bringing Windows Phone 8.1 to its existing smartphone install base. This sadly only applies to unlocked models, as some carriers haven't pushed these updates to their devices as fast as we'd like. Still, the amount of changes in Windows Phone 8.1 is significant, and AT&T has just announced some love for its best Windows Phone yet. As of today the Nokia Lumia 1020 should receive its update for Windows Phone 8.1. This follows the updates that have reached other devices like the Nokia Lumia 925, Lumia 635, Lumia 1520, and Lumia 520. The update ...

    It's only natural that companies look for ways to get rid of some extra products in stock before the launch of whatever products come next. If you were wondering if Apple is really launching new iPads and iPhones in the next couple of weeks, AT&T has just proven that it is, as the company is now offering some enticing deals for existing Apple products. If you need a new iPad right now, and can't wait for the newer models to launch, AT&T could be the place to go, though there's a catch. AT&T is offering $200 off the purchase of a cellular iPad, but if you purchase an iPhone 5s ...

    Updated with time codes, new streaming portals, and links to the high-quality version. Skip past the YouTube embed and download your very own copy of this week's podcast. Enjoy! Thanks to our new Blackphone review devices, we're already halfway off the grid ... or at least, halfway buried under Post-It notes littered with passwords, which is almost the same thing. Before we get too stealthy, though, we're hosting us a little show. Some of you might know it as the mobile technology podcast that's gone 108 episodes without missing a single week (accurate). Others might know it as the last ...

    Right now, if you mention “LG” and “phablet,” we're liable to start thinking about that G3 Stylus LG seems to have accidentally outed earlier this week. At least, it's going to have an integrated stylus, but the jury's still out on a number of other hardware specs, including a precise screen size. But wind the clock back just a little further, and we had a much more straightforward LG phablet on our mind, the 5.7-inch G Vista that launched last month. Right from the start, rumors identified the phone as a Verizon model, and by the time it was finally read to go official at the end ...

    Many of LG's very best smartphones over the years have been easily forgettable, not visually stimulating, and overwhelmingly mundane. We'd also call them under appreciated, as many of them were firsts for the industry. The Optimus 2X, for instance, won a Guinness World Record for being the first dual-core smartphone. The Optimus LTE, if my memory serves me correctly, was the first smartphone with a 720p display. The Optimus 3D was the very first glasses-free 3D smartphone. And so on. LG has a ton of smartphone firsts under its belt and, surprisingly, the G3 isn't one, unless you count the ...

    When buying a new smartphone, what makes us choose one carrier over another? Device selection? Sure, but let's consider a phone like the Galaxy S5 or HTC One M8 that's broadly available on different networks. What then? Maybe you're already locked-in to service with one carrier, or maybe one has plans that are really attractive. Maybe you live someplace where reception is spotty, and some carriers have better coverage than others. But one thing we rarely consider when making these types of decisions is battery life. Perhaps we should, though, as one study points out how consistently longer ...

    The story of LG's new G Pad models has been slowly rolling out since late spring. First the tablets themselves were announced all the way back in May, and then June brought us some detailed spec breakdowns. By July, we were starting to hear about availability (at least for some of the family) in the US, and now with August before us, the carriers are starting to weigh in, with AT&T announcing a special deal to welcome the G Pad 7.0 to its stable of devices. We already knew the G Pad 7.0 would sell for about $150 in the States, but that was for the WiFi-only version. With AT&T, ...

    How much do you spend each month just to stay connected? As cell phones – namely, smartphones – have increased in popularity over the last decade, the cost of keeping them connected has slowly crept upwards. Cheaper functions, like voice calling and SMS, have taken a back seat to the more convenient and bandwidth-hogging mobile data. As such, calling plans and text messaging are now, more often than not, offered in unlimited quantities. However, gone are the days of $20 and $30 unlimited data plans (unless you're lucky enough to be hanging on to a grandfathered plan). The cost of ...

    The long-rumored, long-awaited "Amazon Phone" is finally here, and it's a doozy in more ways than one. Over the past week of testing, we’ve shown you its most fun features and run through its camera capabilities, and we've taken your questions live on the air during a special segment of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. Now it's time to see how our impressions of the Fire Phone have changed since our first hands-on. As Amazon's own site helpfully reminds buyers, Fire is the only smartphone on the market with "Dynamic Perspective, Firefly, Mayday, and more." It's the only phone that gives ...
