    Updated with links to the high-quality version of the podcast below! Thanks for joining us for the live show, everyone, and enjoy the HQ downloads in the Links section. One of the nice things about a mobilized mob of fanatics is ... well, nothing. For the purposes of intelligent discourse and civility, there's nothing cool or helpful about a bunch of heated fanboys rabidly denigrating a new product because it happens to threaten their preferred smartphone. We've talked about this sort of thing before, and now we're talking about it again – this time in the context of Blackphone vs ...

    Updated with time codes, new streaming portals, and links to the high-quality version. Skip past the YouTube embed and download your very own copy of this week's podcast. Enjoy! Thanks to our new Blackphone review devices, we're already halfway off the grid ... or at least, halfway buried under Post-It notes littered with passwords, which is almost the same thing. Before we get too stealthy, though, we're hosting us a little show. Some of you might know it as the mobile technology podcast that's gone 108 episodes without missing a single week (accurate). Others might know it as the last ...

    Update: Due to today's difficulties with Hangouts, the below Hangouts video is not the ideal recording of today's Weekly episode. Instead, we highly recommend the Libsyn-hosted version, edited by our own Jules Wang and available for streaming and download at the links below. Thanks for listening! One of the nice things about hosting your own podcast is that you get to decide exactly what qualifies as "news." Not in the mood to pretend the latest wave of iPhone 6 display-glass leaks fit the description? Well, tweak the filter a little, and suddenly you've got just a small handful of ...

    Update: Edited podcast with download links has been added below the YouTube embed, courtesy of our excellent podcast editor, Jules Wang! Get to downloadin', folks! The big guys have enough time in the limelight. It seems every week we're spending 80% of the podcast talking about the huge players in the mobile space, along with their commensurately huge smartphone and tablet offerings. While we're not ignoring those established forces in this episode, we are devoting a bit more time to newcomers: from Amazon to OnePlus to a little firm called GoTenna, there's a lot going on in mobile's ...

    Updated with time codes, download links, and the contest winner's name! Thanks to all who participated in our giveaway contest; stay tuned for another one next week as Pocketnow's month of giveaways rolls on! If there's one thing we're about, it's devices. And from Sony's new "Selfie Phone" to the new Android Wear-ables to the rumors of new Droids, a new Lumia 1525, a back-from-the-dead Surface Mini and the lingering possibility of the Nexus 8, we've got no shortage of hardware talk on this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly: the podcast that leaves the broad implications to others, so we ...

    Galaxy S5 Prime. Galaxy S5 LTE-A. Galaxy S5 SUPREME. Whatever you call it, we've spent the week getting to know Samsung's most polarizing Quad-HD flagship, and we know you've got questions. So we've got our review unit all charged up and ready for an on-air "live Galaxy S5 Prime review" of sorts, along with some compelling Samsung topics a few eager readers have already sent in, on today's Pocketnow Weekly podcast! But there's more to life than Samsung, so we're mixing in a whole lot more mobile tech talk for your expectant eardrums. We'll cover HTC's newest financials, Lenovo's obscene ...

    Update: We've received your comments on the m4a format (vs mp3) and have added an mp3 version to the available feeds (it's accessible via the direct-download link below). Going forward, episodes will arrive in mp3 format, just like they used to. Thanks for the feedback! After 100 episodes of an award-winning mobile technology podcast done in the tried-and-true audio-only format, we think it's about time to change things up. That's why we're eschewing the beautiful outdoors for sound booths and dark offices this June afternoon: so we can kick off the all-new Pocketnow Weekly in style! ...

    LG's G3 launch event is coming up on us fast, and in just a few hours we'll see the company’s latest flagship smartphone take the spotlight as the manufacturer introduces us to its creation. We've already showed you how you can watch the event live as it unfolds, and we'll be bringing you ongoing news coverage alongside that, as well. We've also sent Pocketnow's intrepid Michael Fisher to New York to get some hands-on experience with the new handset, and share some video of his encounter with you. But once all the smoke clears, what then? Will you be off to gawk over the leaks and rumors ...

    Update: We're live now! Join in below! We've got a Windows Phone 8.1 review video live and on the wire, a Windows Phone 8.1 written review coming down the pipe, an in-depth feature article on Cortana on the front page, and a ton of Windows Phone 8.1 impressions coming at you in a Pocketnow Weekly podcast going under the mic in a couple days. But we know you, and that's not enough: you need live, off-the-cuff impressions from the team you've come to trust for such things – and you'd like to see us on camera as we do it. Fair enough. That's right; it's Editorial Roundtable territory once ...

    At Pocketnow, we think we’ve assembled one of the best teams in mobile tech reporting. But mobile is a huge space to cover, and the list of outlets covering it is equally massive. Making up that techno-blogosphere is a long list of personalities – some eccentric, some conventional, but all interesting.  With the Pocketnow VIP (based on the popular Pocketnow Live), we aim to get to know some of these outstanding personalities – where they’re at, where they’re going, and what circumstances conspired to make them the people they are today. Because in a nuts-and-bolts world like ...

    Update 3: Annnnd there we have it. VIP is complete and video is embedded below. Thanks to all who tuned in, and especially to those who contributed questions. See you on the next VIP! Update 2: All right folks, here we go! Wish us luck on our second attempt, now that Google's services are (hopefully) fully restored. See below for embed. Update: Sorry folks, but a global Google services disruption struck literally seconds before we hit the "Broadcast" button. Until Google gets this worked out, we'll be unable to kick off the VIP. Please stand by. At Pocketnow, we think we’ve assembled ...

    For a while now, the mobile-tech review landscape has looked much the same. Reviewers like us craft lengthy written pieces packed with charts, photos, and videos, and readers like you ... read them. Sure, you have the opportunity to respond in the comments, and most good editors will answer questions there, but there's precious little real-time interaction between reader and reviewer. There's not much chance to ask questions, seek clarifications, or take a quick look at that one little detail. For a while, we've been trying to break down the wall between reviewer and reader - to allow you ...

    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 ...

    Topic Today is the day Apple will make it or break it. We're giving our Apple WWDC 2013 first impressions, live, as things happen, in a special episode of Pocketnow Live. You can tune in to watch us comment on news in real time, as usual, in a live, public (but closed) hangout. Apple is expected to unveil it's next generation of iOS today: iOS 7. Whether there will be mobile hardware (aside from laptops) is yet unknown but we wouldn't count on it. However, rumors of an iRadio streaming service are rather frequent and there has to be, as usual, "one more thing". The keynote will start at ...

    Update: Due to technical difficulties, Stephen Schenck will not be able to join the Hangout today. Topic Next up on the list of major players to hold an event is the iPhone-maker. Apple WWDC 2013 is happening on Monday, June 10, and there have been lots of rumors, some even conflicting, regarding the event. Tim Cook almost confirmed iOS 7 for Apple WWDC 2013 and we know for quite some time that Johnny Ive is working on the project. Will it be something completely new or just a flatter version of iOS 6 is yet unknown. Then there are rumors of Apple's upcoming, alleged, streaming radio ...

    Topic Google Edition smartphones seem to no only be the trending topic, but also the next big thing. Those preferring a vanilla Android experience, a Nexus experience, if you will, will definitely prefer the Google Edition Samsung Galaxy S 4 and HTC One devices. Without TouchWiz or Sense, and with the latest vanilla version of stock Android, you can basically choose your own Nexus device. Is this the new trend for the future? Will we see more manufacturers adopt this dualist system of offering a device with two different user experiences? Will this mean that OEM personalization will slowly ...

    Topic Jolla unveiled their first phone this week, together with "the other half", which brings an interesting concept to the mobile world. HTC's executives are leaving the company which makes us wonder whether this is a good or a bad things. Samsung officially sold 10 million Galaxy S 4 units through its global channels and unofficial sources talk about 5 million HTC One devices being sold. All this in a context in which Microsoft downgrades its YouTube app for Windows Phone in order to comply with Google's requirements. If any of the above is not an interesting enough topic for you then ...

    Last Friday we were excited about the week ahead, this week, as it contained two days circled with very promising events: Nokia's Lumia 925 event in London and Google's I/O. Both came and passed, leaving us with a phone (or two), and ecosystem improvements. Depending on your expectations and standards your excitement probably either turned into delight or disappointment. Of course we'll talk about Nokia and Google I/O reactions, since they're the most recent (and probably among the last until the next big event of the year bringing us the next iPhone), and you can tell us why you're happy ...

    After CES there's MWC and then comes IFA in the autumn but there's nothing really going on between February and September in terms of shows, the place to get all the cool stuff from manufacturers. That's when we put all of our hopes in individual events, like the HTC One event, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 launch, and, next week, Nokia and Google I/O. Many things have been rumored to be unveiled on the 14th in London, at the Nokia event: from the mysterious EOS to the Catwalk and the Lumia 928. Not many things have been said about Google I/O though: rumors imply Android Key Lime Pie might be ...
