    No matter which cut-off date you go by, at this point summer 2014 is indisputably over. That also means that Pocketnow's Summer of Giveaways has drawn to a close, but not before hooking a number of lucky readers up with some brand new smartphones, including a couple with one-of-a-kind custom skins. We'd love to bring some more offers like that back in the future, but for the moment, those week-in, week-out giveaways have drawn to a close. The good news for you is that we've still got other ways you can become a winner, thanks to some of what's going on over at our Pocketnow Deals store. ...

    Updated with the high-quality edited version of the podcast, which you can stream or download down below (or through your favorite podcatcher app). We hope you enjoyed; we'll check back in with you next week! If you ask us, the first thing you should do on iPhone launch day is take a long, hard look at the competition. Not because the iPhone is a bad product, but because everyone else tends to step up their game when Apple brings a new phone –or two– to the yard. And that's more true than ever this year. With that in mind, we'll talk about all kinds of smartphone and smartwatch ...

    With IFA 2014 dying down, it's about to return to business as usual in the smartphone world. Well, after tomorrow's little event from this upstart smartphone maker out west, anyway. But now that you have a chance to take a breather and let all the hardware launches of the past week start to sink, we wanted to remind you of a contest you've still got time to enter. Last Monday, we started our latest round in the Don't-Tell-Us-It's-Almost-Fall-Yet Pocketnow Summer of Giveaways. With the help of those skin-making geniuses over at dbrand, we're hooking a lucky Pocketnow reader up with a brand ...

    If you've been following Pocketnow so far this summer, no doubt you've come across one or more of our smartphone giveaways. We've been handing out phones, accessories, and invite codes since June, often announcing the new giveaway each Monday. Does that mean we've got a new one for you today? Well... no, but there's a good reason for that. See, last week, when we started our latest contest on Monday, we decided to keep entries open for a little longer than normal, extending them for over a full week. That means there's still time to win, which is exactly why we're putting up this reminder. ...

    We got a phenomenal response from this contest, but the time for entries has past. Thanks to everyone who took the time to participate, but only one of you can be our winner, and it's going to be Benjamin Levy who goes home with a Blackphone to call his own. Everyone else, keep following Pocketnow for our news of our next contest. Maybe you'll be the lucky winner next time around! ___ Last week came and went without a new opportunity to win anything as part of our ongoing Pocketnow summer of giveaways. After the weeks of handing out phones, invite codes, and accessories, we needed a brief ...

    "Hey where's my Pocketnow contest this week?" What, you thought just because we're in the midst of this summer of giveaways that meant having something running every single week? Wait - that's is what we're supposed to be doing? Ah, nerts. OK, well while we were planning to have our next giveaway start a couple days back, we had to put that one on ice for just a little bit, and it will finally kick-off this coming Monday (so don't forget to check back then). But to hold you over, we've still got some existing stuff that's still running, so this is as good a time as any to remind you of one ...

    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 ...

    Smartphone owners are used to pledging their allegiance to a platform – are you an Android man, cozying up with Google and all that Play Store content, or do you find Apple and its iPhone series more your speed? Hell, maybe you've just got to be different and you're backing Windows Phone. Gamers face similar decisions, committing themselves to the latest console of their choice, and reaping the benefits of (or feeling the pain of missing out on) exclusive titles. Well, if you've been on the fence about going with Sony or Microsoft (or Nintendo, if you've just got to be contrarian), we'd ...

Everyone else, check back next week, only this time instead of Monday, we'll be bringing you word of our new contest on Wednesday. ___ Last week, we saw our second Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G LTE giveaway draw to a close.  And as it did so, it marked the end of the last contest we announced back at the start of July, for our month of giveaways. So, is that all she wrote? Not hardly. We're expanding that month of giveaways to a summer of giveaways, and if you were ...

Earlier this month we formally kicked-off our summer of free stuff with a one-of-a-kind Sony Xperia Z2 featuring a custom Pocketnow skin, and those offers have continued over the following weeks, most recently with that Huawei Ascend Mate 2 4G LTE contest we just wrapped up. And while there are more hardware giveaways waiting in the wings (stay tuned), we also just cut the ribbon on the brand new Pocketnow Deals site only a few days back. When ...

    How much do we love you guys? For the fourth week in a row now, we're running a smartphone-themed giveaway, letting you not just get expert opinions and up-to-date news from your visits here at Pocketnow, but also have the chance to score some pretty nice hardware. While our summer of giveaways didn't officially get started until the beginning of July, back in late June this whole movement found its inspiration when we hooked a lucky Pocketnow reader up with a brand new Ascend Mate2 4G LTE from Huawei. With such a great response from that contest, we decided to keep things rolling, and set ...
