    It's been just about a month since Microsoft released Halo: Spartan Assault as a Windows Phone exclusive. Though we'd seen companion Halo apps from the platform before, getting a full-fledged title of its own like this could stand to do a lot for the reputation of gaming on WP8. Problem was, Verizon had worked a deal where only its users would get access to the title for the first 30 days following launch. With H:SA debuting the evening of July 18, today marks day 30, which means that the rest of you Windows Phone gamers should soon be having your own shot. So far, we haven't heard any ...

That right there is some broadcast heroism, folks. No matter what Taylor Martin's new-office excuses are. But that's not what we're here to talk about. No, we're about a week overdue for an audio-only examination of Nokia's newest flagship, the Lumia 1020: we'll cover it's high, low, and so-so points, and debate just how much action a phone has to bring to be worth ...

    The launch party for the much-anticipated new Halo game; Halo: Spartan Assault for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 just happened on July 16th in New York City and we got to take a look at how it works thanks to a little demo from 343 Studios.  No one was able to tell us an exact release date for the game just yet, and that's probably because the developers are still putting a few final touches on it.  The version we got to demo didn't even have all of the levels or the achievements put together. Still, we expect it to be released in July and it will be available first only on Verizon ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Sony's press invites for their IFA event, and what we're expecting to see at the event. Then we talk about the Nokia Lumia 1020 and we give you a tip on how to get a free camera grip through Microsoft. Nokia's Pro Camera app is also part of the news as the company will share the love with the Lumia 920, 925 and 928. Windows Phone's Halo Spartan Assault makes the headlines next as it should arrive soon, though with a catch sadly. The Moto X is next as it's now leaked for Verizon in photos, along with more rumors of alternate materials like wood ...
