    There are plenty of miniature things in this world that are great. Love or hate it, the Mini Cooper S is an incredibly fun car to drive. The iPad mini is a smaller, more affordable version of the iPad Air with just as much power and prowess. Even mini golf is one of my favorite time wasters to partake in when I'm on vacation. If my opinion on "mini" were instead based on the mobile industry's meaning of the word, I would hate practically everything with the mini tag. We all would. Samsung has been doing it for a few years now – throwing the mini tag on the end of its popular Galaxy S ...

    HTC's largest screened smartphone to date debuted last month, and ever since we've had our eye on the One Max's arrival in the States. Last week we were talking about Sprint's plans for the phablet, but today we've got Verizon in our sights, learning of the handset's arrival alongside two much more petite Androids. The One Max itself will run Verizon users just about $300 on-contract. While not exactly surprising, given Verizon's penchant towards pricing phablets in this manner, we're still worried that specs like the Snapdragon 600, versus a beefier 800, might make it hard for shoppers to ...

    Even though the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is out, and it is a neat little phone, AT&T is apparently preparing to add its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S III mini, to its line-up, According to a recent leak, the model number will be SM-G730A, codenamed "Golden". There is no mention of the specs in the leak, so we're assuming the same specs are available on the AT&T phone, like on its international sibling. That means a four-inch WVGA screen, 1GB of RAM, 8/16GB internal storage, five-megapixel main camera, as well as a VGA front-facer. LTE support should be in but we'll circle back ...

    While nothing's yet to go official, it sure feels like a lot of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active's story has already been revealed. We've seen what sure seems to be the phone in the flesh, checked out some specs, and heard about a possible AT&T launch. Today we add to that tale with the first leaked render of the handset. True enough, it's sporting an AT&T logo, and that date on the screen sure seems to jibe with the theory that we could hear this guy announced on June 20 (going up for sale a day later, perhaps). There's no metallic orange this time around, but a more reserved gray ...

    With so many devices launched between the fall of 2012 and Spring of 2013, we know many of you want to know what's worth your money, and what you should skip with no questions asked. Both 2012 and 2013 have been great years for mobile technology, but we have a feature called "Worst Gadgets Ever" for a reason. There's always a good deal of products that either end-up as vapor ware, some that suck on their own, and some which simply aren't worth your money when compared to other devices in the market. We thought we'd help you with the Top 5 devices that we would all skip out of everything ...

    A newly-leaked T-Mobile roadmap is out, giving us a look at what's coming to the carrier in late March, and answering a few more questions left over from earlier leaks. Once again, we're looking at a March 27 date for the new BlackBerry handset, now confirmed as the Z10. The last time we checked out a T-Mobile roadmap, we saw this model identified by its codename Libson, attached to the very same date. That's in line with what we've heard from RIM about US launches, but it's still a bit of a lengthy wait for a phone that has so much riding on it. Next, we've got the LTE-capable version of ...

    The Samsung Galaxy S III mini, announced mid-October, was added last month by Apple to the list of devices for which the Cupertino-based company is seeking justice in the courtrooms for alleged patent infringements. Samsung defended itself saying that the S III mini is not available in the US and thus it shouldn't be included in the lawsuit. Samsung confirmed that the phone in case will not be offered on the American market; as a response, Apple has withdrawn the Galaxy S III mini from the list together with patent infringement claims agains the device. Despite Apple's lawyers being able ...

    We've seen the trend of larger screens on our smartphones evolve for some time now. Then we saw the rise of the 10-inch tablet. Now we're seeing 5-inch smartphones and 7-inch tablets. Now we have an entirely new category: the Phablet -- part phone, part tablet. The phablet is powerful enough to do all the "tablety" things a 7- or 10-inch tablet can do, has a good sized battery, but fits it inside a package that somehow manages to fit inside your pocket (as long as you have large pockets). Our smartphones, however, are getting larger and coming closer to the "phablet" size.  Isn't there ...

    It's very clear that the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini has only a passing resemblance to its larger namesake. We've talked at some length about all the ways Samsung failed to make the phone much like the Galaxy S III at all, and a number of those complaints had to do with the processor choice. While it's been clear that the handset wouldn't get a top-of-the-line Exynso 4 Quad, all we've really known is that the Mini would run on a dual-core 1GHz chip; just which SoC did Samsung have in mind? The mystery is finally solved today, upon ST-Ericsson announcing the presence of one of its NovaThor ...

    It should have been so simple. Once Samsung got the idea in its head, you'd think the design would just follow logically. The Galaxy S III Mini: like the Galaxy S III, but just... not so much of it. Instead of putting the GS3 under a shrink ray, Samsung took a few liberties with the design of the GS3 Mini, and what it came up with just doesn't make much sense at all. In case you missed the news last week, Samsung announced the Galaxy S III Mini, arriving with a 4.0-inch WVGA display, a dual-core 1GHz SoC, gigabyte of RAM, and 8GB or 16GB internal storage. If you're confused what about that ...

    As promised, Samsung has made the Galaxy S III Mini official. We've heard initial rumors including specs and we've even seen renders ahead of the announcement followed shortly by pricing reports from retailers. With the press release out, the Galaxy S III Mini is now official and the specifications are no longer subject of rumors. There's a dual-core 1GHz processor under the hood with a four-inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen, 8- and 16GB internal storage options with microSD expansion support, five-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, VGA webcam and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the ...

    It's the biggest deal in phablets, and one of the hottest things in smartphones as a whole. We've been covering it in editorial and video pieces for a solid week, and now we get to talk about it on the air.  On this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly, we're talking Galaxy Note II. Of course, that's not all we're chatting about on this episode of the podcast. Join us for discussion about last week's AT&T event in NYC, Samsung's new Galaxy S III Mini and weird little Galaxy Music, HTC's future prospects and the Windows Phone 8X versus the Nokia Lumia 920, and the iPhone's continuing Maps ...

    We just talked about the Samsung Galaxy Premier, and while it provides an alternative to super-large-screened phones like the Note II, is still pretty bulky itself with a 4.65-inch display. If you have your mind on something a little more petite, you've got options like the Galaxy S III Mini that's been popping up all over our radar in recent days. We already heard some rumors about how it would be priced, but now that the handset is official, and retailers are accepting pre-orders for the phone, we can finally see just what the GS3 Mini will fetch. Yesterday, we mentioned the possibility ...

    We've seen Samsung's head of mobile unveil to the press that tomorrow, in Germany, the company will unveil the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini (GT-I8190) with a four-inch screen and all of the goodies inside its larger sibling, but new information has surfaced and is showing off the phone itself as well as some more information. As you can see, it looks pretty much like the SGSIII but smaller and with relocated front-facer and sensors. The four-inch display is confirmed to be a Super AMOLED and the resolution is WVGA which brings the ppi to 233. However, where the report is different from what ...
