    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 ...

    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 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 ...
