    We've been bringing you our best quality mobile-tech podcast once a week for over a year now, and we're not about to break that streak on one of the biggest tech weeks of the year. Sure, we might've missed our usual Wednesday/Thursday time slot, and we might've even technically missed the weekend dividing line, depending on what time zone you're in - but you know what? We've just capped off four days of intense video coverage with a midnight podcast from one of the most echo-filled hotel rooms in all of Berlin, and we're uploading it through the technological equivalent of a 1999-era AOL ...

    We know you hate to wait, loyal listeners, but the torrent of smartphones and tablets at IFA 2013 has blown our schedule right apart this week. From the Galaxy Note 3, Note 10.1 2014, and Galaxy Gear to the Sony Xperia Z1 to the new Acer Liquid S2 phablet, our video queue hasn't stopped churning - and more features are funneling down the pipe even as we write this. The time to sit down and podcast just hasn't materialized. But that doesn't mean we're about to go our first week in over a year without an episode of the Pocketnow Weekly tech podcast! Keep your ears primed (and your eyes on ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Apple's September 10th event, where we expect to see the official launch of the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C and iOS 7. We could easily dub this as the iPhone 5 event, but we still don't have an official name for the invite. Then we go through Google's silent announcement of Android's next version name, which will be Android 4.4 Kit Kat. Then we go through the Sony Xperia Z1 leaked press information, aside from more details on the Cybershot X. We then talk about the Motorola DVX, which is the affordable companion of the Moto X. We end today's show ...

    Sony's big IFA event takes place tomorrow, and with the teasers the company's been publishing, there's been little doubt that it would launch the phone we've been following as codename Honami. While there's still plenty to look forward to from tomorrow's event, including the details on those Smart Short lens camera accessories, the cat may already be out of the bag when it comes to Honami, as the official Sony press release announcing the phone seems to have leaked a day early. Assuming this is legitimate – and it certainly has the trappings of a Sony press release – Honami will see ...

    That's right, it's about that time for IFA 2013 to happen, and you can bet we'll be covering every inch of the show floor in Berlin. This has historically been the event for phablets, and a couple of other surprises. Whether it's LG, HTC, Sony or Samsung, there is a lot to expect from this event in both old and new categories. One of these new and emerging categories is the smart watch, and we know the Samsung Galaxy Gear will be a device we'll be covering extensively. Make sure you share your thoughts and predictions on what you expect to see at this event as well, and stay tuned for tons ...

    Sony may have yet to go official with Honami, expected to be launched as the Xperia Z1, but that hasn't gotten in the way of the numerous opportunities we've had to get a look at the smartphone. Between the official teaser images Sony itself has released, the shots of hardware components, and full-on imagery of the completed, functional handset, it sure can seem like we really have already seen it all. As we look forward to Sony's IFA event this Wednesday, where Honami will presumably be the star of the show, we've got one more glimpse at the phone to check out, with what sure appear to be ...

    Pocketnow Daily gets an average of 3 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand. We'd like to thank you all for participating in our question of the day, and we love your feedback so much, that we decided that since we can't respond to ever single one of your comments, we should at least feature a couple in a weekly video. This is the Pocketnow Daily Recap. Since we only have 3 minutes on every Daily video to go through the hottest news, the weekly recap will serve as a more extensive discussion where we also include your thoughts on the subject. Sadly, for the sake of time, we ...

    The Samsung Galaxy Note III will be announced on September 4 in Berlin; that's a certainty! Also certain are some of its upcoming specifications, judging by previous models, their relationships with the S-line, and Samsung's general policy on devices. We've already seen the purported white face of the phablet but what nobody seems to know at the moment is when exactly will the Note III become available? According to the image above, a purported still snapped off of a Three UK internal document that seems to hint that Samsung's 2013 phablet will land, at least on the British carrier, on ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about some of the screenshots leaked of the Galaxy Gear companion app for Samsung devices, aside from some more revealing patents of a future Motorola smart watch. We later talk about the Sony Honami and the first leaked gallery of the phone. The iPhone 5S is next as we have some carrier support information to back the name now. Intel surprised our radar after that since it seems they want to go into the smartphone business. We end today's show talking about the new HTC Fetch and HTC Mini+, even though we debate their functionality. All this and ...

    The upcoming Sony Honami, which the company will almost certainly unveil at its September 4 pre-IFA Berlin special event, has been subject to numerous leaks and rumors in the recent past. We've seen pictures from Mr. Blurrycam and his friends but today's Sony Honami leaked pictures seem to be a clear and sharp representation of what the phone might end up to be. Whether we're looking at a dummy unit, a prototype, or the real deal, is unknown. However, the back of the phone, where the camera is, has labels attached, which are missing from the official Sony teasers. Sony might have ...

    It's the show that kicks off the fall season in consumer electronics and mobile technology, and we're going to be there, as always, to cover it. But IFA 2013 is next week - and last we checked our Novice's Guide to Chronometry and Basic Time Theory, there's a whole lotta time between this week and next. So let's fill it with speculation. Join Jaime Rivera, Taylor Martin, and Michael Fisher on a whimsical journey into the prospective future, as they bat around rumors and leaks concerning such luminaries as Samsung's Galaxy Note III, LG's new G Pad, a futuristic Galaxy Gear smartwatch, and ...

    In one week, Sony's almost certainly going to launch the phone we've been following as codename Honami. Maybe it will arrive as the Xperia i1, or maybe as the Z1, but however it does, it's going to be the most significant Sony smartphone to launch in a while. After all, we're months removed from phones like the Xperia Z and ZL, and this summer's Z Ultra has yet to really resonate with shoppers. Honami should find a middle ground between the regular-sized Zs and the 6.4-inch giant Z Ultra, while keeping the Snapdragon 800 that gives the Ultra its performance. Add to that rumored features ...

    Notification lights are one of those great little features that can go seriously underappreciated. If your phone never had one, you don't know what you're missing, and if it does have one, you probably take it for granted; it's only after getting used to those unobtrusive, gentle reminders of messages on your phone you need to attend to that their absence really starts becoming palpable. While so far there's been no sign of any such light on the upcoming Sony Honami, a newly leaked image sure seems to suggest that there is, indeed, a notification light hidden away. While we've seen that ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the Sony Honami mini that recently got leaked in photos. Then we go through more leaked information of Nokia's 10.1-inch project Sirius, which apparently is their Windows RT tablet. We later talk about Stephen Elop, and how he's a rumored probability for the position of CEO of Microsoft. Samsung is next as we go through the sad rumors of their 16 megapixel camera with Optical Image Stabilization. We end today's show talking about the leaked photos of a gray iPhone 5S. All this and more after the break. Stories: - Sony Honami Mini leaked in ...

    We know, we know: with those new Sony Honami images from earlier today, we're already verging on hitting full Honami saturation here at Pocketnow, but bear with us for just a little while longer. Soon, we'll finally be putting all these leaks to bed any start getting some real hands-on time with the smartphone. As we ease into the home stretch, with under two weeks to go until our expected Honami launch event, some new looks at the hardware are arriving for us to check out. We take a step back from the fully assembled hardware that's been dominating Honami leaks, with new imagery becoming ...
