    Overnight, we shared with you a "render" of what was supposed to be an upcoming HP Android phone, but between the overuse of lens flare and overall amateur-hour look to the whole thing, we were seriously far from convinced. Now there's the arrival of some specs to complement that "leak," and they're once again weird to the extent that we're wondering if this isn't all one big joke. This screenshot from AnTuTu's device info screen claims to reveal specs like a Snapdragon 800 SoC and a 14.5-megapixel camera, and also assigns the name Brave to the handset. But what is up with that resolution? ...

    Even though one might think that HP already had its chance at becoming successful in the mobile landscape, it is always good to see new (and old) players join the game. HP's Senior Director Yam Su Yin said earlier this month that the company might be planning on returning to the smartphone business. On that exact note, a couple of renders (mock-ups) have surfaced on the internet allegedly depicting an HP Android phone. According to the report there is no information attached to these images, so don't expect specs and pricing. What we can see is Android (since webOS is no longer with HP) ...

    An HP executive inspired a world-wide facepalm announcing that it would be getting back into the smartphone game. Seriously. The same HP exec went on to explain that this new smartphone would offer a 'differentiated experience'. Uh huh. Then, he further continued to explain that there was no time table, but even though they are late to the game, they are not late. Yeah. That sounds about what I'd expect to hear from an HP executive. So, I'm going to take off my webOS fanboy hat, and just look at this as an outside observer for just a moment. No Staying Power The only thing HP has ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the carrier leaks regarding a possible launch date for the Moto X. HP is up next, believe it or not, and this time because they've dropped the price on their Slate 7. Google's Nexus 4 takes the spotlight afterwards, as the white variant is no longer being sold in the Google Play Store. Nokia's Lumia 1020 is next as we're still not sure if the device will be called 902 or 1020, but we'll know soon with their July 11th event. We end today's show talking about HTC and their sad Q2 results. All this and more after the break. Stories: - Carrier ...

    Back in April, we saw HP slowly get back into the mobile device game with the launch of its Slate 7 Android tablet. It was pretty affordable, and had some interesting features, like Beats Audio on a non-HTC model, but we ultimately found it to be just too pricy for its lower-end hardware. At the time, we noted that if HP ever got around to shaving just a bit more off its already-low price tag, the Slate 7 could finally reach that point where it was cheap enough to offset some of those hardware concerns – we mentioned coming in under the $150 mark as a key target. Well sure enough, HP is ...

    Before we begin, we'd just like to say something to everyone who's going to call us out for click-baiting with that "Galaxy S 5" title: your allegations are completely founded and true. But look here: even though Galaxy S 5 rumors are (to say the least) premature and indicative of a serious problem with our nasty-fast industry -an issue we discuss on the air- they're also important. That's because, as unreliable and, frankly, stupid as they are, they also give us an opportunity to discuss the future of Samsung industrial design. And any opportunity we get to talk about the Galaxy family in ...

    The HP TouchPad Go was to be the savior of webOS as we knew it.  It would have, with one swipe up and one swipe over, cast aside all doubt that HP and webOS were major players in the tablet space. But HP just couldn't give it a chance to swoop in and save the day. OK seriously, the TouchPad Go would have been a nice little tablet – emphasis on little – and may have stalled webOS's decline. Realistically though, it would not have stopped the great “Too Many Cards” in the sky from ultimately claiming webOS into her bosom. But it would have been really nice to try. So, for those of ...

    Today marks the anniversary of the release of the first webOS handset, the Palm Pre. As such, you're bound to see plenty of nostalgic looks back on the much-beloved platform throughout the day – and we're certainly no exception. But beyond all that, we have ourselves somewhat of an oddity today, with some actual webOS news crossing our desk – that's saying something for a platform that's been shuttered for the better part of two years. This development concerns one of the key digital signatures webOS uses to authenticate communication with HP's servers. Like a credit card, these ...

    It's been four years to the day that Palm's would-be savior platform, webOS, launched to much hoopla with the original Pre. And though the days since have been dark ones indeed for the all-but-dead platform, we thought it would be nice to indulge our nostalgia on this, the anniversary day of "20090606," with a Palm Pre unboxing. Fortunately, our own Michael Fisher happened to have a like-new Palm Pre box, an artifact from a launch-day excursion to his local Sprint store all those years ago. And while the Pre within might charitably be called "well-loved" in terms of its physical condition, ...

    We had an interesting bit of synchronicity crop up in the offices of Pocketnow -and in the recording studios of our weekly tech podcast- this week: we're simultaneously in possession of one of the thinnest, newest tablets in the world - and one of the clunkiest, oldest ones. The interesting part about the latter: it never officially existed. We'll talk about that, plus rumors of yet another mini-Galaxy that ain't bashful about skimping on specs, and a Motorola smartphone that's all-American from design to manufacture. We'll also cover rumors of a newer, flatter iOS 7 as well as updates to ...

    Nostalgia is a funny thing. Sometimes it creeps up on you, and tickles you at the edge of your senses without you even realizing it. One minute you're sitting there and you catch of whiff of roast beef mixed with stale beer and blammo, you're thinking about Cindy Pepperstein who firmly but gently turned you down for the senior prom. And sometimes nostalgia hits you in the face with a shovel, which is the situation I found myself in not long ago. I started thinking, as I admittedly often do, about webOS. About what could have been. (--Insert Harp Music Here--) The TouchPad Go is what could ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about HP's new SlateBook X2 and what this means to their efforts to bring Android into their ecosystem. We later talk about Google I/O starting with the new APIs, Services and Google Play Games, and then include things like Google+, Search enhancements, maps, etc. We then go through Google Music All Access and cover some of the included features. We end today's show talking about what Google I/O didn't release, mixed with the fact that a Galaxy S 4 running stock Android is awesome. All this and more after the break.

    HP hasn't really shined lately in any department, but that hasn't stopped the company from selling tons of new Envy X2s. It's been a very popular design so far, bringing probably one of the best form-factors to those in need of a Windows 8 computer. Now in an interesting twist, the company has just announced their new HP SlateBook X2 to follow on the design language of the Envy X2, with the difference that this SlateBook runs Android. This new HP SlateBook X2 is a 10-inch tablet with the much-expected Tegra 4 chip. It does become part of the Slate 7 line-up, its specs are far superior. ...

    Remember back during the Mobile World Congress when we saw HP show up, not with news of the miraculous revival of webOS, but with some Android hardware of all things, showing off the budget-priced Slate 7 tablet? HP told us to expect the Slate 7 to go up for sale sometime in August, and now with only a couple days left in the month HP is making good on its word, kicking-off online sales of the Android tablet. So, how cheap is "budget-priced"? The HP Slate 7 manages to undercut the Nexus 7 with its $170 price tag. It does that while still offering a premium feature or two, like Beats Audio. ...

    Stuff comes up, folks. Sometimes you've got a pressing appointment in Romania, or a meeting scheduled in Media, PA. Sometimes you're at the day job, other times you're off the grid somewhere in the country. Other times you're buying a car. These things happen. Fortunately for us, these things don't usually happen all at once, which means the Pocketnow Weekly podcast usually features more than two people on the air. But today, listeners, Lady Luck was not with us. Today, Sam the Scheduler was out sick, because every member of the Pocketnow team was otherwise engaged when it came time to ...
