    When talking about smartphones, Apple and Blackberry are somewhat alone in that they make their own  hardware. Phones powered by Microsoft's OS and Android are built by OEMs like HTC, Nokia, Samsung, LG, Motorola, and others. Back in the day, major companies like Dell, HP, Compaq and others would outsource the production of their devices to OEMs. Over time, these OEMs began to gain popularity and eventually brought hardware carrying their own brand to the market. Ironically, Compaq, Dell, HP, and others have all but gotten out of the smartphone/PDA game, having been replaced by the OEMs ...

    Ever since the advent of the modern personal computer, the promise of a "paperless" office has been omnipresent. To-date, that promise hasn't been fully realized. Even with tablets, which are excellent reading devices, there are still times when we need to get the information from our screens and put it on to paper. Until recently, that hasn't been very easy. Let's go hands-on with printing support, one of the lesser known features that comes built-in to Android 4.4 KitKat. Android Printer Support What we're showing you here should work on any device running Android 4.4 and up. In this ...

    Looks like the history of Palm isn't over yet, after the company has been purchased by HP in 2010. It looks like Palm is changing hands once again, as now, according to an official press release, Qualcomm is acquiring it from HP, alongside others, including a patent portfolio consisting of around 1,400 granted and pending patents from the US, and 1,000 more from other countries. The chip-maker's move comes almost a year after webOS has been sold by HP to LG. In addition, Qualcomm also purchased IPAQ and Bitfone patents from HP, but the Palm move brings Adam Doud's editorial into the ...

    Yesterday afternoon we were looking at a leak out of HP, supposedly depicting an upcoming phablet from the company. Although all we had was one little low-res pic, it sure looked like it might be a six-inch device, and we had heard 5.5, 6, and 7-inch rumors attached to HPs plans. Today we finally start getting confirmation of just what it's been up to, as HP announces the Slate6 and Slate7 VoiceTab; no 5.5-incher this time. Detailed specs aren't officially available just yet, but HP does mention quad-core chips, support for dual-SIM standby, and stereo front-facing speakers. Based on what ...

    How long has it been since we've seen HP release a smartphone? Sure, there were those good old webOS days, but despite numerous rumors, claiming both Android and Windows Phone interest, in all the time that's followed the company's yet to release another handset. Instead, we've seen it focus on tablets, but rumors have recently begun suggesting that HP plans to release an actual phone (or phones). And it's just possible that the blurry, low-res mess down below is none other than this handset. We've heard about 5.5-inch, 6-inch, and even 7-inch models in the works at HP over the last few ...

    Smartphones are great and useful tools, but until you get a bigger screen on them, they're never going to replace your laptop computer. Tablets are gaining in popularity and in functionality. They're doing so well, in fact, that many smartphone makers are pushing the limits of what can be called a "phone" by making screens bigger -- much bigger. At Pocketnow we call them "phablets". When we started we were sort of making fun of the huge-screened phones, but despite our mocking, the phrase suck -- and we learned that, when done right, phablets can be pretty awesome. But tablets and phablets ...

    Recent rumors have suggested that HP might be curious about getting back into the smartphone game with a possible Windows Phone release, but as far as the recent products we've actually seen from HP go, the name of the game has been tablets. Today we hear from HP to expect more along that line, as the company unveils five new tablets, including one based on a design we just shared with you. Yesterday NVIDIA announced its Tegra Note tablet platform, with news that the actual hardware would be licensed to other manufacturers to sell as their own. HP may be one of the first to do so, as the ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about some Nokia Insider information that mentions the use of Android on Lumia models for testing purposes before the deal with Microsoft came to be.

Samsung is up next as the FCC has received yet another Windows Phone for approval, and this one seems as if its going to AT&T. We then talk about the HTC One Max since hey, we're still waiting for it, and leaks in photos continue to surface. We end today's show ...

    HP doesn't quite seem to know what to do about smartphones these days. It has a storied history with them, releasing Windows Mobile models (like the iPAQ 210, above) before getting into webOS. Since the shuttering of that platform, though, we've wondered what the future might hold for HP phones. Certainly, we've seen Android tablets from the company, but rumors from earlier this summer of an HP Android phone ultimately proved fruitless. Now there's a new idea going around, suggesting that HP will release a Windows Phone model. This rumor is very light on specifics, but supposedly a ...

    We already have a series here at Pocketnow lamenting the choices of smartphone and tablet manufacturers, and trying to learn something from their most visible mistakes. It's called Worst Gadgets Ever, and it's a fun little video series that you should check out. But sometimes, a broader look at the industry's development is useful - and given the right attitude, it can also be fun. Earlier this year, our own Taylor Martin took you on a tour of smart phone form factors that are officially dead - not necessarily due to poor decisions, but owing to the constantly shifting mobile landscape ...

    Nobody likes a cheapskate. It's why we have fun derogatory labels like "tightwad" and "skinflint" for those friends of ours who insist on dividing the bar bill by how many mozzarella sticks they actually consumed, rather than by the cost of the plate. Whatever other merits they might have, penny-pinchers just aren't fun to have around. That's no less true in the case of huge multinational corporations than with people. But where a cheap social friend is pretty easy to jettison when he gets annoying, it's a little harder to make up for the shortfalls of dealing with a cheap company. ...

All this and more after the break. Stories: - AT&T opens Nokia Lumia 1020 ...
