Watch today’s Pocketnow Daily as we talk about our Samsung ATIV S review along with some specifics on why this phone is so hot. Then it’s more $99 Nexus 7 talk, even though the price tag has grown a bit to $130 or $150. Then Samsung returns to the news, this time because they’ve just confirmed that they will be offering their Windows Phone legacy customers the 7.8 upgrade. Apple then shows us how they don’t care about start-ups by the results of a recent story regarding the POP charger for iOS devices. We end today’s show by talking about LG and how their [...]
According to an AT&T Community Manager’s posting, the carrier is not planning to offer the Windows Phone 8107 update. The refresh solves the famous “keyboard bug”. Of course, as with any Windows Phone update, carriers can skip one but need to offer the subsequent one, which is cumulative anyways.
However, we need to remember Eric Hautala’s famous post: “In the months ahead, we’ll continue to send out firmware and maintenance updates as needed. These will be available across the globealthough not everybody will receive or require them. It [...]
Samsung’s Focus S is one of the hottest phones to be a part of the Windows Phone second generation. With an eight-megapixel camera, fast 1.4GHz processor, and big 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, it’s easy to see why. So far, though, the handset’s exclusivity has been an issue, and it’s only an option to AT&T subscribers in the States. If you were hoping that the Focus S might someday see a wider release, we’ve got some bad news for you, as a Samsung exec has apparently confirmed the Focus S will be staying in the US.
This news comes [...]
Tis the season to get great discounts on just about anything, even Smartphones. If you’re in the market for a Windows Phone to keep or give away for the holidays, AT&T just made your life a lot easier by dropping the price of their Samsung Focus Flash to just a dollar. Obviously that dollar will include hundreds of more dollars after you sign a two-year contract, but hey, no meal is really free these days.
The Samsung Focus Flash is the entry-level Windows Phone on the AT&T network rocking Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, a 3.7″ Super AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz [...]
Everyone is preparing for Black Friday and the deals are starting to pour in. This time it’s Microsoft with some great offers for those who want to pick up a Windows Phone. If you have a Microsoft Store nearby, get there tomorrow.

While there haven’t been many secrets left concerning the US launches of Windows Phone 7.5 Mango devices, we’ve still been looking forward to see what Microsoft had to reveal at the event it had scheduled for earlier today. We did end up learning a little new information, but more than anything, today’s event was about building-up Windows Phone buzz, with more than a little help from a six-story-tall WP7 smartphone.
The only new tidbit we picked up had to do with the HTC Titan on AT&T, the last of the four handsets (also including the HTC Radar 4G, Samsung [...]

It was just yesterday that we were wondering about the status of Samsung’s Focus S and Focus Flash Windows Phone handsets. First, Samsung finally set up product pages for the pair on its website, and then we received an invitation to a Windows Phone event that prominently featured imagery of the two phones. We still didn’t have anything specific like a release date, but the feeling was in the air that the new Focuses were about to drop imminently. Today, AT&T has finally given us what we were looking for, confirming launch dates for the phones as well as revealing [...]
As AT&T was laying-out its upcoming lineup of Windows Phone Mango handsets last month, it described plans to carry the Samsung Focus S and Focus Flash. Since then, the phones have appeared on the official Microsoft Windows Phone site; it seemed like the only company that wasn’t aware of them was Samsung itself. Now the manufacturer has finally launched product pages for the pair, suggesting we’re nearing their releases, and we’re seeing the duo featured on invitations to a November 7 AT&T Windows Phone event.
The Galaxy-S-II-alike Focus S (pictured [...]
A little bit more than a month ago AT&T made its Windows Phone Mango line-up public and the HTC Titan, Samsung Focus Flash and Focus S are part of it. While we’ve seen the HTC Titan get launched and even reviewed it (the European model), there was no real information regarding the Focus Flash and the Focus S.
To be quite fair, everyone was expecting the Focus Flash to be the American variant of the recently announced Omnia W just as everyone was expecting the Focus S (probably Omnia S outside the U.S.) to be a Windows Phone powered Galaxy S II. Those who believed that [...]
