    It might be safe to dial down the skepticism on the recent Nokia EOS leaks. More and more information is hitting the interwebs, and the latest is a video with a close-up of the camera system on the back of the rumored upcoming device. You can check that video out at the bottom; those who have seen, or own, a Nokia 808 PureView, will instantly recognize the lens system, lens cover, and mechanics. Everything appears to function like on the 808 PureView, from the lens cover to the lens movement, which lends us to believe there might be (should be) and ND filter included too, like on the ...

    Sometimes you get listener mail that asks how the band got together in the first place. Sometimes that happens the day after you drop some nostalgic sentimentalism all over the internet. Sometimes, simultaneously, there are some sweet, juicy rumors and leaks about a top-of-the-line camera phone with what looks like a moon crater on it. Sometimes you gotta put all that into a podcast with the original cadre of Pocketnow 'casters, and see what comes out. All that, plus the longest outtake reel in the history of Pocketnow, more Nokia EOS rumors than you can shake a stick at, the first-ever ...

    As more and more images of Nokia's rumored 41-megapixel PureView EOS emerge, we're finding ourselves dialing-back the skepticism a little. Granted, there were some explicit signs of image manipulation in some of what we saw yesterday, but that need not necessarily speak to the illegitimacy of the hardware being depicted, and with similar images arriving from multiple sources, all of this is starting to seem very real. So far, we've had a number of looks at incomplete shells, as well as some at the assembled EOS, but now we get to take things one step further and get to see a powered-on ...

    We're seeing more and more Nokia EOS leaks of the alleged Elvis-codenamed phone. Yesterday we've seen a couple, some probable, some arguable, and today the purported phone gets photographed from all angles. The pictures have been allegedly snapped off of the phone in real life. As with previous leaks, we're treating them with a certain dose of skepticism, but they seem more and more credible. The important information on the phone has been concealed by labels and we can't get a confirmation of the sensor on this phone. However, the huge circle (and hump) on the back indicates something big ...

Nokia is next as they've just leaked photos of their EOS smartphone emerge, some good, some fake. HTC takes the spotlight again today as we've got some leaked photos of an HTC One Mini, which looks like an interesting alternative to the One. We end today's show talking about Samsung's announcement of the Galaxy S 4 Active, ...

    What is it they say about raining and pouring? Only a couple hours back we were checking out some images that sure seemed to depict Nokia's rumored EOS PureView Lumia, with a big, round cutout for the phone's bulky camera elements. Thanks to a separate leak, we can follow that up now with what appears to be a shot of the fully-assembled PureView camera package. From the shape, to arrangement of the lens and flash, this sure does appear to be the same hardware we saw this morning. That "XX megapixel" notation is something Nokia's used in the past during phone development, and we've even ...

    If we're to believe the rumors, the time has nearly come for a 41-megapixel PureView Nokia Lumia Windows Phone handset. The so-called EOS has been teasing us for months, and recently we've heard some detailed hardware rumors and learned that Nokia may be gearing-up to launch the phone in about a month. Now, as we get into what sure feels like the home stretch, some new images have arrived that just might give us our first look at this smartphone in the flesh. Sure enough, what we can see here does seem to match with the general descriptions we've heard of the phone – that is, a very ...

    Seems like there are a lot of rumors, and even more "sources" out there these days. We just recently heard that AT&T was allegedly testing the Nokia EOS with its 41-megapixel 808 PureView-like camera. Now we're hearing about a second device, a Nokia tablet, being tested simultaneously. First things first: this new report claims the same thing, and a little more. The EOS is being tested at AT&T and in other markets. Its camera will be further improved from the one on the 808 PureView, claims said report. Additionally, AT&T and other markets are also reportedly testing a Nokia ...

    Where are we with rumors of this Nokia EOS, the PureView Lumia said to bring 41-megapixel imaging to Windows Phone? We've heard about a relatively compact design, unlike the 808, looking pretty much like the Lumia 920. There was mention of a new Nokia Pro Camera app, a xenon flash, and we've heard rumors of a possible launch in early July. Today we get a fresh batch of EOS gossip, including a new codename for the handset. WPCentral makes a number of claims about the EOS and seems to have a great deal of faith in their accuracy, explaining the info comes from "numerous trusted sources whom ...

    While we didn't get a chance to see Nokia's rumored EOS, a 41-megapixel PureView Windows Phone handset, at the company's press event the other week, hope remains that this smartphone is still in the running to make its debut soon. We've recently looked into rumors from sources claiming to have had a glimpse at the hardware, but weren't left with a clearer idea of when the phone might launch, other than maybe sometime this summer. Today we start narrowing that down, with a specific launch date rumored. Supposedly, the EOS could arrive during the second week of July, with July 9 mentioned as ...

    It's time to be skeptical! The "real PureView" Windows Phone was not unveiled at the London event on the 14th of May despite many were hoping for the rumored Nokia EOS to appear. Instead, we got the Lumia 925 and some more time to dream about the 41-megapixel Windows Phone. The rumors and reports continue though, with the latest talking about the EOS. Someone has allegedly seen the phone and said that it's a polycarbonate phone as thick as the Lumia 920 but heavily tapered towards the edges. To quote the rest: "The lens housing is round in shape and does not protrude much. The flash is ...

    Nokia will bring the PureView 808's revolutionary 41-megapixel camera - or at least something darn near equivalent to it - to Windows Phone. Rumors have been looking to a device codenamed the EOS to deliver such a sensor, but even if doesn't arrive in that particular form, it will one way or another. After all, that tech was the last great hurrah for Symbian, and with Symbian now out to pasture, it's only logical to let it continue on with Windows Phone. A lot of advocates have been looking forward to the launch of just such a model as one of the great triumphs of Windows Phone 8, but I ...

    Nokia is holding a May 14 event in London, and, according to rumors, the 41MP Nokia EOS will be unveiled. Depending on who you tend to believe, this might be the case or not. Digitimes quotes "market watchers" who seem to agree that this indeed might be the case. The Nokia EOS will allegedly be a high-end smartphone running Windows Phone. It will be purportedly equipped with a 41-megapixel camera sensor. Nokia is no stranger to imaging as the 808 PureView last year featured the gigantic sensor which made the phone the best camera-phone out there. The Lumia 920 brought another take on ...

    These last few months have had Nokia sitting on a whole bunch of rumored hardware. We wondered if we might get news of models like the metallic Catwalk or the PureView Lumia EOS at MWC, but the only new Lumias to surface then were the lower-end 720 and 520. When are we going to get to see the rest of this stuff? Well, we just might get our chance in a few weeks, as Nokia has just started distributing invitations to a May 14 London event. Make no mistake - this won't be another Asha announcement like that QWERTY model the company teased. We're absolutely going to learn about something in ...

    It seems like anyone even remotely interested in Nokia phones has been wondering when the company would bring the 41-megapixel PureView sensor from the 808 to its Windows Phone Lumia lineup. Rumors over the past several months teased at the phone's reveal, but it continues to be a ghost. Now some new gossip has it looking like the EOS might still be quite a while off, but could arrive with some pretty powerful hardware. Supposedly, Nokia has been evaluating two different hardware options for the EOS, including both a dual-core and a quad-core version. Ultimately, power consumption concerns ...

    Tomorrow's the big day. March 14. Now sure, if you're a math fan you're already excited about the opportunity to celebrate your favorite irrational constant, but this year in particular, the rest of us have reason to look forward to the fourteenth as well, with Samsung running its big Unpacked event. Short of out and saying it, the company's done pretty much everything it can to confirm that this will be the grand unveiling of the Galaxy S IV, the company's 2013 Android flagship. That's going to be great to hear, and we're itching for the opportunity to confirm the oh, so many details ...

    So far, it's seemed like smartphones offering rugged features like waterproof or dust resistance have lived over on the Android side of the fence, leaving users of other platforms to deal with bulky cases to get the same protection. Nokia may be looking to offer some of that peace of mind to Windows Phone users, as we're hearing that the company has partnered with P2i to release a phone featuring water-repelling nano-coating. Instead of focusing on keeping water out, P2i's technology is more concerned with keeping water that gets into your phone from causing any harm. Its coating process ...

    We've been on-site for a full day in Barcelona, making preparations to cover one of the year's biggest mobile technology shows. Last night, we let you in on the fun and frustration of our pre-show planning on a special episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. Later today, we're hosting a special MWC-focused episode of the Pocketnow Live broadcast. But right now, we'd like briefly to share our predictions, hopes, and dreams for MWC 2013. You know we're serious about this, because we stood out in the rain next to a major Barcelona landmark, and Tony wore his leather jacket. So quit yer ...

    In the far-off reaches of Barcelona, two men fight for the right to party tell their tale. Battling narrow urban canyons, strange fast-food condiments, kielbasa-selling mobile-phone salesmen, and seagulls with voices only seagull mothers could love, they fight tooth and nail to share their story. The story of the wonders of mobile technology. You won't hear about all of the weird encounters that have greeted Anton D. Nagy and Michael Fisher since their arrival in Spain for the 2013 Mobile World Congress, but you'll definitely get a taste of what it's been like on the first harrowing day ...

    We're coming down to the wire on Nokia's MWC event, with just one week to go until we get to see what's new from the company. Our chance of seeing a tablet may be shot, but there are plenty of rumors about new smartphones that should keep us satisfied. Chances are, not everything we've heard about will make an appearance, but Nokia could still have a good number of new phones to show off. Just how many, though? According to the logs of one ad network serving Windows Phone apps, Nokia seems to have four new models in operation. Two of them are essentially locks: the Lumia 720 and Lumia 520, ...
