    It's not every day you schedule a podcast the day before one of the biggest Windows Phone announcements in the platform's history - but given our plans to host a special-edition Pocketnow Live event covering Nokia's NYC event tomorrow, we thought it best to get the Weekly out of the way ahead of time. That doesn't mean we don't talk Nokia - indeed, we've got Chief News Editor Stephen Schenck on the air with us this week to discuss what it's been like to follow the story of the EOS/1020/909, probably one of the most widely-leaked devices in smartphone history. We also follow the leaky ...

    As you've probably heard, we've got some Nokia news to look forward to this week. If the rumors and leaks are to be believed, the company is gearing up to drop quite a smartphone on the world come Thursday - and whether it's called the EOS, 909, 1020, or something else, it's a safe bet its name won't be the big story. Taking center stage will most likely be its super-sized camera module, which at an assumed 41MP seems guaranteed to blow the pants off every other device out there not called an 808 PureView - including Nokia's current Windows Phone flagship, the Lumia 920. But the Lumia 920 ...

    It's weird when holidays fall in the middle of the week, because either you're kicking off a long weekend with the special celebration, or you're returning to work the next day with a fuzzy brain, a sunburn, and sand in your hair. We're in the latter situation this week at Pocketnow, the American portion of the team coming down from a day of BBQ and a night of fireworks ... but in our case, it's a good thing. Because today's the day for our weekly mobile tech podcast, and we love us some mobile-tech podcasting. We hope you do, too, because today's Pocketnow Weekly is quite possibly the ...

    Nokia Lumia 1020 is the rumored name for the upcoming 41-megapixel goodness we've seen leaked as the EOS, Elvis, and Zoom. Previous leaked images tried to depict the looks of the phone but thanks to a recent leak we now have what appears to be a press render of the phone on AT&T. Pictured above is the EOS for AT&T, at least according to reports. If you're having trouble differentiating it from the Lumia 920, for instance, we won't blame you. However, the back -- the one which we're still missing and dying to see leaked -- is where the action is with that famous 41-megapixel system ...

    Carl Zeiss has rebranded itself to ZEISS for better brand recognition and consistency. Those who are fans of photography, or high-end Nokia phones, already know Carl Zeiss. The camera-lens-maker (and not only) published the company decision on its own blog, also giving examples on how the brand will appear on future products. Interestingly, an early Nokia EOS (or Elvis, or Lumia 1020, or Nokia ZOOM, we don't know, really) leak has featured the new name. As seen above, the purported back of the upcoming 41-megapixel phone, to be unveiled in July 11, wears the "PureView ZEISS" branding. If ...

    We currently find ourselves less than two weeks away from July 11, when unless Nokia has been pulling an awful practical joke on us all, the company will launch its long-awaited 41-megapixel PureView Lumia at a New York event. At least, Nokia hasn't been keeping the event's focus much of a secret, and continues to drop hints of the EOS/Lumia 1020 we expect to see there. As we've mentioned, there's a lot of pressure on Nokia for this phone to be a hit, so it shouldn't be surprising to learn that the company appears to be arranging some celebrity involvement to help generate buzz. Nokia sent ...

    Nokia Zoom is the latest name we can add to the list of monikers that can potentially describe the phone to be unveiled on July 11. We've initially heard about EOS, then Elvis, and, more recently, a Lumia 1020 denomination started popping up on the interwebs. However, Nokia Zoom is the company's latest trademark, and, since the official invite features zoom all over, we think this might be something related. The trademark filing is dated May 30 and it is still under examination over at the European Union trademark database. The trademark covers "mobile phones, smart phones, tablets; ...

    We're on the cusp of a what promises to be a very interesting period in the story of Windows Phone. In just over two weeks, on July 11, Nokia will almost certainly announce its first 41-megapixel PureView Windows Phone handset. Based on the interest that rumors and leaks of this hardware – first referred to by codename EOS, and now likely to arrive as the Lumia 1020 – has been generating, Nokia could be sitting on the most popular Windows Phone model to date. At least, I'm sure hoping that the 1020's arrival makes one of the biggest splashes Microsoft's platform has witnessed, because ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the recent leaks of a Samsung Galaxy S 4 that's LTE-Advanced capable and also includes a new Snapdragon 800 processor. Microsoft follows the news as Xbox games are now tipped to reach iOS and Android very soon. Nokia also made the rumor headlines due to the possible name of their future PureView EOS Lumia smartphone. Sony follows as they now announced their new SmartWatch 2, and it proves to be a very compelling product. We end today's show talking about the new Sony Xperia Z Ultra phablet, and our first impressions of the product. All this ...

    July is just around the corner, and a little more than a week into month, on July 11, we're expecting Nokia to finally draw back the curtain on its 41-megapixel PureView Lumia smartphone. Leaks have given us a strong idea of what to expect from the phone, but there have still been several lingering questions, including under just what name the hardware might arrive. Thus far, we've been referring to it by the codename EOS, but it seemed clear the phone would need a standard Lumia numerical designation before it was time to launch. Today we hear that the EOS just might arrive as the Nokia ...

    There used to be a significant divide between "good" cameras and "point-and-shoot" varieties. Today, thanks to modern technology, that division is growing smaller. In the past you could tell a hard-core photographer from an amateur by the size of their lens and the features on their camera. Today we have smartphones that can all take decent pictures, and a few that can take fabulous ones. What's made all this possible? Technology. Sensors have gotten smaller and more sensitive. Storage devices are getting smaller in size, larger in capacity, and faster in speed every day. And the OSes that ...

    In the food service industry, when you're a server who's been slammed with too many customers and can't keep up with the demand, you're said to be "in the weeds." On a podcast, that same expression means something quite different. It means you've wandered so far from your intended topic (in this case, mobile technology) that you've found yourself in the far-flung wilderness talking about anything but (in this case, sports cars, British accents, and the adult film industry). But while we do spend a fair amount of time in OT land on today's Pocketnow Weekly, we still manage to get some tech ...

    A few days back, we checked out the FCC paperwork for Nokia's model RM-877, and between the handset's dimensions and the mention of a "camera grip" accessory, it sure looked like we had a strong contender for the EOS. That time, the band coverage seemed to suggest we were looking at a phone for AT&T, which was already rumored to be getting an EOS exclusive. Today we have another Nokia smartphone getting its FCC clearance, and this time it just might be the international version of the EOS. Instead of the RM-877, this model's the RM-875. With the same measurements and that camera grip ...

    We apologize for some technical difficulties we had in uploading today's show. Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the HTC Butterfly s and what this means to a probable revamp of the HTC Droid DNA. We then talk about Nokia and all their tactics to make their July 11th event relevant. Case designers have also leaked the designs of the iPhone 5S and also the affordable iPhone that's also been rumored. iOS 7 for iPad was also revealed on video for those that were curious. We end today's show talking about the hidden menu in iOS 7 that was recently uncovered, and how this menu ...

    Just under a week ago, Nokia started sending out invitations to a July 11 New York event. While they didn't out and directly reveal what the company intended to have on its agenda, the "Zoom Reinvented" language they used sure had us thinking about the PureView EOS, which like the 808 before it, would be able to use its excess of megapixels as a workable digital zoom. While we found that tease to be relatively straightforward, perhaps Nokia is worried that it was still a little obtuse for some of you, so now it's hammering the point home even harder, while still managing to avoid saying ...

    We may have doubts when it comes to the legitimacy of the recent set of pictures attempting to depict a metal-framed Nokia EOS, but the lion's share of leaked EOS imagery, that showing a more typical polycarbonate construction, has been seeming very much real. As we count the days until Nokia's July 11 event, when we're hoping to finally see this smartphone announced, some additional leaks continue to trickle out, and today we get some evidence of an additional color option for the EOS. So far, we've seen this apparent EOS hardware in yellow, then black/gray, and even red. This white ...

    With all the leaks we've been seeing in recent weeks, it's sure felt like Nokia's first 41-megapixel Windows Phone model, so far known by codename EOS, was nearly ready to launch. Last week, we learned of invitations going out for a July 11 Nokia event that sure seemed to hint that it could mark the announcement of the EOS. Today we add some more fuel to that launch fire, with an unknown Nokia handset passing through the FCC that sure could be the EOS. Nokia model RM-877 includes support for HSPA+ on the 850, 1700, and 1900MHz bands, as well as LTE on bands 2, 4, 5, and 17. Bands 4 and 17 ...

    Last week, some new images arrived that showed a phone very similar to the leaks we've been seeing of supposed Nokia EOS hardware, only instead of a plastic construction, they showed a metal body for the handset. We wondered which, if either of these designs we might see in the final, commercial version of the hardware, but now a number of concerns have come to light that suggest this metal phone could be something else entirely. First up, a few new pics of this aluminum frame surfaced over the weekend, finally giving us a side view. The weird thing is, if we look at the button cut-outs, ...

    Topic Pocketnow Live kicked off twenty Fridays ago. We can't even believe it ourselves that we're at the twentieth installment of a show that is highly popular not only among our viewers, readers, audience in general, but also among members of the team. Episode 20 is also the Season Finale. We're wrapping up Season One with the team that kicked it off. Worry not, we're not only planning on Season Two, but thinking way ahead. So, before we take a break from the Live, let's have a great casual conversation one more time. Plenty of things going on, from the Galaxy Mega and HP TouchPad Go ...

    The Nokia EOS will hopefully become official on July 11, or at least we're hoping that's what the event in New York will be all about. After all the leaks we've seen, we're starting to believe that the phone allegedly depicted is real. Today, new images are trying to anticipate Nokia's next Windows Phone. In contrast with previous leaks that showed off a polycarbonate casing for the Nokia EOS, today's pictures are reportedly hinting at an upcoming Nokia EOS aluminum phone. Whether this was just a prototype or it will be the final material that Nokia will choose for the EOS is yet unknown. ...

    Before we begin, we'd just like to say something to everyone who's going to call us out for click-baiting with that "Galaxy S 5" title: your allegations are completely founded and true. But look here: even though Galaxy S 5 rumors are (to say the least) premature and indicative of a serious problem with our nasty-fast industry -an issue we discuss on the air- they're also important. That's because, as unreliable and, frankly, stupid as they are, they also give us an opportunity to discuss the future of Samsung industrial design. And any opportunity we get to talk about the Galaxy family in ...

    Following months of rumors, the arrival of June has really seen the floodgates open when it comes to leaks of the so-called EOS, Nokia's first 41-megapixel PureView Windows Phone handset. All those leaks should clue you in that this puppy's ramping up for its launch, and a new invitation Nokia just began distributing sure does look like it's talking about the EOS. As anyone who's used the PureView 808 can tell you, one of the big benefits of snapping pics with a smartphone packing a huge camera sensor like that is that the need for an optical zoom is mitigated by the ability to just ...

    The Nokia EOS leaks continue after we've reportedly looked at several aspects of the phone in the past weeks. Today's image claims to depict the upcoming Nokia EOS and we're looking at the phone next to the Lumia 920. In case you couldn't figure it out -- we won't blame you, they're almost identical -- you can spot the Nokia EOS on the right and recognize it from the clock in standby mode, as a Nokia Glance feature. Aside from that, you can also see that it does not lay flat on its back, because of the camera hump. The Nokia EOS is expected sometime next month. It should bring the Nokia ...

    Damian Dinning is the person responsible for many awesome camera innovations at Nokia. Before leaving the company -- his place was taken by Juha Alakarhu -- he brought PureView to the world, first, in the form of the Nokia 808, then, the Lumia 920 with PureView stage-two. The Nokia 808 PureView features, among many other camera innovations, a mechanical shutter. While the Nokia EOS is nothing but a (recurring) leak at the moment, it is rumored to have a camera system which heavily relies on the one used in the 808. A recent leak tries to depict the same construction, including a ...
