    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 ...

    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 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 ...

    Smartphones, phablets, tablets. We all remember the days when smartphones had 2.3-inch screens; it all happened back in the day where QVGA was a big thing. Fast forward just five or six years and we're seeing 5-6-inch phones that have Full HD resolution. As phones got bigger and bigger, an interesting thing happened to tablets: they got smaller and smaller, starting from 10-9-inches as the preferred form factor for many today became the 7-inch tablet. With less than an inch or so between the smallest tablet and the largest phone, will the line disappear and will these two, otherwise ...

    Topic Yes, we're bringing our Samsung Galaxy S 4 devices to the hangout and you can ask questions about the phone from the Editor that reviewed it. Additionally, we're also bringing the HTC One phones to the hangout so you can ask your questions about the S 4's direct competitor. Think of it as a quick and dirty Q&A, with a twist, all happening live, where you can join and interact with Pocketnow team members (and their hottest phones). Despite setting a weekly broad topic, with Pocketnow Live, you can also bring your own. We can talk about whatever else you want to, tech or not, so ...

    There are two types of phone users out there: those lucky to make it through the day on one charge with their phones, and those who get the "beep beep". There are also two types of phones out there: those with removable batteries, and those with juice packs out of reach. But what if you could get the battery life you've always wanted? What would you be willing to give up? Of course, it all depends on how you use your phone but the best person to judge that is you. My battery life and its mileage will most definitely vary from yours, so you tell us what you wish for in terms of power ...

    Apple did everything in its power to tell the world that the best stylus you'll ever need is your finger. The iPhone changed the way we perceive phones and after almost half a decade we ended up thinking back at the pointing device, gently placing it somewhere in the museum. Then Samsung came along in October 2011 when the company introduced the Galaxy Note at IFA, bringing the stylus (S-Pen) back in our everyday's life. The South Korean phone maker identified a niche and acted ballsy in not only bringing something back, with added functionality, but turning it into a successful line-up ...
