    We're all familiar with companies that partner with others to pre-bundle "exclusive" software on their devices. NFL football apps, NASCAR, Internet TV, and more have been included on devices from Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile, just as examples. These types of partnerships attempt to lure fans to switch to the "official carrier" of whatever it may be. Then we began to see other strategic partnerships rise. Partnerships that made more sense. I'm referring to the arrangement between HTC and Dropbox. Back in 2011 Dropbox announced that they'd be giving HTC customers 5GB of storage space in the ...

    It’s the time of year when we all start thinking about Bunnies, and Baskets and Jelly Beans – well, at least in my household it is. That’s right it’s Easter week, and that has me thinking about all sorts of goodies. Goodies like Jelly Beans and…Key Lime Pie??? Of course, ‘Jelly Bean’ has a different meaning to technology geeks like us. Jelly Bean is the current iteration of the Android operating system so many of us know and love. It’s also far and away the best iteration of Android to grace a phone or tablet ever. It’s also getting on close to a year old which ...

    Google's Android OS has gone through some major changes since its release half-a-decade ago. Some changes have been cosmetic while others have been "under the hood". Cosmetic changes to the user interface usually correspond with major version releases of the OS. As such, if the next version of Android is version 5.0 (which most of us are calling Key Lime Pie) and it follows this pattern, we're in for some pretty significant UI changes. What those changes may be is up for debate, but we can look at what's happening with other OSes to get an idea where mobile devices are headed -- and we ...

    Even if it takes six Skype calls to make a podcast happen, we're gonna do it for you folks, because that's just the kind of guys we are. And it's a good thing, too; while the news cycle has calmed down somewhat in the wake of last week's big BlackBerry event, there's still plenty to talk about from the worlds of Android and Windows Phone, from rumors and speculation to ... well, no, just rumors and speculation, really. But it's scintillating stuff, especially if you're into things named "M7" and "Nokia Tablet." All that, plus listener mail and a heaping helping of Joe Levi's robot voice, ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Google's confirmation that they will support sync services for Windows Phone during the next six months as an extension to their past death threat. We later talk about the Galaxy S IV and the probable release dates. Qualcomm apparently leaks Android's next name, but considering how many pastries are left that start with a K, that wasn't a difficult one. Then we talk about the Microsoft Surface RT and bad it's performing when it comes to store returns. We end today's show by talking about the HTC M7 and all the color offerings that are rumored ...

    Google introduced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at Google I/O last June, following the launch of Ice Cream Sandwich with the Galaxy Nexus the previous fall. By that timetable, we should be expecting the next major Android revision to arrive in the near future, long-rumored to be Key Lime Pie. As we wait to get confirmation on just what to expect from this release, a new leak makes that name sound a whole lot more official, as well as gives us a window for when to expect it to arrive. Some leaked Qualcomm roadmaps detail both the company's own plans for releasing chips that will run the new OS, as ...

    It started off as a rumor initially, coming from people "familiar with the matter", but it seems to have stuck. Motorola is rumored to be working hard on a certain "X Phone", and we're led to believe that it will be a super-Android. More recent reports are bringing the X Phone back in the headlines, this time with new alleged info. According to the report the phone will be a 5-inch, edge-to-edge, no-bezel, device. While not a Nexus device, the new theory claims that this will be the first phone from Motorola which will be a cross-carrier-branded device, hence the "X". That doesn't stop ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Android's probable 5.0 name that never was. Then the iPhone 5 returns to the news, though this time because it continues its pursuit for world domination. Microsoft may also be working on something highly urgent for SkyDrive according to some rumors. Then we go through the probable leaks of the HTC Titan III. We end today's show talking about a good amount of Samsung products to be launched after this holiday season. All this and more after the break.

    Before Google finally went official with Jelly Bean as the name for Android 4.1, it sure dropped a lot of hints. When the MWC rolled around back in February, and Google set up a nice big bowl of the candies for guests to enjoy, there was little doubt left in anyone's minds as to the name choice, even if it would still be several months before a formal announcement. For now, plenty of speculation has looked to identifying the forthcoming Android "K" release as Key Lime Pie, and while we still don't have anything we'd consider official confirmation, that's not stopping one Google employee ...

    It seems like just yesterday that we were getting our first taste of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, now we're being teased with the Nexus 4, the Nexus 10, and the potential for a whole bunch of Nexi smartphones being announced in a few days. In the past, Google has used a highly public launch event to announce (though not necessarily release) a new version of the Android Operating System. Usually Google releases their new product running the new operating system on it, and it's usually not too long after the big event. This time around we're hearing rumors that the Nexus 4 will be available ...

    There are lots of speculations regarding Google's October 29 event. You can clearly see in the invite that there are four towers to the left in blue and two on the right in red, which could easily indicate Android 4.2, rumored to be called Key Lime Pie (or something else starting with the 'K'). What exactly will Android 4.2 bring to the table is yet unknown but there are reports of multiple user account support, improved security, new Gmail, better settings, etc. TNW reports we can expect " ‘Content in the center,’ which will allow users to access Play Store content from a widget and ...

    In addition to numbers, Google names their versions of Android after sweets, Cupcake, Ice Cream Sandwich, and most recently, Jelly Bean. Almost everyone thinks that the next version of Android is going to begin with the letter "K". In my last episode of the Android Guy Weekly I talked a little about what features might be coming in the next iteration of the OS, an speculated about what the name might be. After all, how many sweets (other than name-brands) begin with the letter "K"? The general  consensus, as well as an off-the-cuff remark by someone "in the know" at Google I/O has been ...

    Now that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is literally days old, I've got to wonder: what's next. I know, I know, Jelly Bean hasn't even been released to the AOSP yet, and Ice Cream Sandwich is only available on a small percentage of devices, but we can still dream, and looking to the future is never a bad thing, right? But what, exactly, will be included within the next version of Android? Will it be another minor version, say 4.2, or will we see a jump to 4.5 to even 5.0? What features will we see? What improvements will be made? Hit play, and let's see if we can figure some of it out! What's in a ...
