    Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the same time. It’s a huge frenzy, commenters go nuts, and it’s a giant explosion of frantic opinion-sharing activity. For about … a day. And then it all goes away. Sure, there’s followup coverage as people find bugs and hidden features, but after that initial blast, not ...

    Two tablets walk into a bar. One of them bears an impossibly long and convoluted name despite its slim dimensions, and the other packs quite a bit of girth alongside its useful S Pen stylus. With an $80 gulf between them, the question facing the patrons of this imaginary, tablet-serving watering hole isn't an easy one. That question is this: which one do I try to take home with me? For the answer, check out our most numerically intense comparison ever, Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 vs Galaxy Note 8.0 (or "battle of the Samsung slabs," if you've never been one for numbers). We stack the Tab 3 against ...

    Stuff comes up, folks. Sometimes you've got a pressing appointment in Romania, or a meeting scheduled in Media, PA. Sometimes you're at the day job, other times you're off the grid somewhere in the country. Other times you're buying a car. These things happen. Fortunately for us, these things don't usually happen all at once, which means the Pocketnow Weekly podcast usually features more than two people on the air. But today, listeners, Lady Luck was not with us. Today, Sam the Scheduler was out sick, because every member of the Pocketnow team was otherwise engaged when it came time to ...

    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 ...

    Looks like both the recent Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 leak we've recently seen and out hunch that it was real were spot on. This latest set of pictures depicting the upcoming device in real-life seem to be a perfect match with what we've seen leaked previously. Today's leak comes from Italy and completely strips the Galaxy Note 8.0 of its secrets. Both the front of the device (above) and the back (below) are exactly like in the previous leak. This means that the rounded corners of the Nexus 10 are meeting the Galaxy S III/Galaxy Note II design principles. There is of course a very thin chance ...

    Life frequently defies our expectations. For example, if it's your first full season covering mobile-technology trade shows, sometimes you find your expectations for a nice, quiet lull between CES and MWC completely upset -toppled, really- by reality. For this editor, that reality came fast and fierce, delivering an unbelievable bounty of rumor and speculation at his doorstep on the morning of this week's Pocketnow Weekly podcast. The bright side: you get to hear all the latest news and gossip surrounding Galaxy S IV and Note 8.0 speculation; HTC's Droid DNA upgrade with a very James ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the additional rumors of more than one iPhone being launched in 2013. Then Microsoft takes the spotlight as we talk about the official Microsoft Surface Pro announcement when it comes to pricing and availability. The LG Optimus G Pro is next as it just became official in Japan, and there are a lot of cool things coming with the device. Then we move to the Galaxy S IV as some of the news show some leaked image renders of how the device will look, and the other news show that the launch date will most likely not be on MWC 2013. We end today's ...

    After Samsung basically confirmed the Galaxy Note 8.0's presence at MWC we were trying -- and we managed -- to find reason why such a device is something you should get excited about. Word is we should expect a 1280 x 800 resolution screen on this units with a five-megapixel main camera and a 1.3-megapixel webcam. The image above claims to depict the upcoming Galaxy Note 8.0. Of course, you should by now have your grain of salt handy. However, if this will indeed be the next Note to be unveiled in Barcelona, we can expect a combination between the Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, and Nexus ...
