    Call it what you want, but it seems that Samsung has a big success on its hands with the Galaxy Note 7. In fact, it's so much of a success, certain countries are starting to reel back from pre-orders and general sales availabilities. Samsung Malaysia, for example, has released a missive to the media saying that because of market demand, it won't be able to officially launch the Note 7 in the market until next month. That said, it had been running pre-orders through today with some promised early shipping dates — the company continues to promise that the dates will be honored. Europe has ...

    Ordered an iPhone SE lately? How lately? Still haven't gotten it shipped? It's a likely situation for many customers worldwide as wait times still come to around two weeks — the same ballpark we saw earlier on in the product's existence. AppleInsider also reported chatter from factories that Apple had increased its iPhone SE quota by 5 million units for the quarter. This logistics stalemate contrasts with the shipping situation for the Apple Watch: six- to eight- week deliveries became one-week deliveries over a few months. Analysts expect iPhone SE sales to easily clear above 10 ...

    T-Mobile has spent all morning responding to frustrated customers who want to #GetThanked, but can't because everyone else wants to #GetThanked at the same time. Traffic has overwhelmed T-Mobile Tuesdays' servers from the Android and iOS app to the t-mobiletuesdays.com website. It turns out that plenty of people definitely appreciate some free pizza, free ice cream, a free movie (or two) and, quite possibly, even more. Who would've thought? The company has repeatedly reassured each and (possibly) every fan on Twitter that it is working on the issue. We're experiencing unbelievable ...

    Could an iPhone SE be the billionth iPhone that Apple will sell? Bookies can take your bets over there. In the meantime, RBC Capital Markets investor Amit Daryanani has put out a note that has found the light in Apple's rather played out store sell-out. Where you still see iPhone 5s sales — even though Apple has stopped those in the US — in combination with iPhone SE sales, Daryanani expects that 40 million four-inch iPhones will be sold globally. 15 million of those are forecast to be iPhone SEs that will generate revenue up to $6.8 billion for the company on gross margins of about 35 ...

    Maybe Apple took its iPhone "s"-model iteration strategy one cycle too far. Taiwanese components sources had to revise its shipment forecasts down after slower-than-expected sales this year. Morgan Stanley is looking ahead for an iPhone slump. The dominoes continue to fall from that fact as we find out that Japanese and South Korean components factories are about to do worse off than last year. Sources say that Apple had initially asked producers to keep Q1 production quotas comparable to this time last year, back when the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were out. It seems that Cupertino — ...

    In most cases, it wouldn't make sense for a retailer to stop carrying a product it agreed to carry on behalf of its vendor unless the vendor tells the retailer not to. If there's a problem on the retailer side, it'd be tough to find a reason for the vendor to spin the issue. When Amazon Germany announced that it had to withdraw the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL from sales, there was a question about just how many customers were complaining about or returning the device. It's been a week since the take-down occurred and Microsoft has not addressed the issue. Similarly, "Purchase" buttons for the ...

    From nothing to something, the Galaxy Note 5's presence in the European bloc has been much desired, non-existent and hard-fought for. Samsung has had much pressure to bring its latest S Pen and phablet to the continent. Now, after getting word that Romania might see first units shipped early next year, Samsung has officially bowed to demand. The chaebol's Ukraine site has been taking pre-orders for the 32GB Galaxy Note 5 since October 9 and has been incentivizing first-wave buyers by offering an extended battery pack. The going price? 19,999 UAH (919.50 USD as of this post). Ukraine is ...

    Back when I started working for Pocketnow, I brought my own HTC-made T-Mobile G1 with me. Shortly thereafter I was sent the Nexus One (also made by HTC) and used that as my daily driver until I replaced it with another HTC device. Over the years I've had long-term experience with every single Nexus out there, which is fitting for the type of user that I am: I'm a power user and a developer. Even for tech journalists, devices in the Nexus family were (and arguably still are) the best by which to reference all the different OEM "flavors" of Android. The Nexus program worked well. Devices ...
