    The Android 4.4 and Nexus 5 launches should be just hours away, if the latest (and very loud) rumors have finally got it right. While that makes it tempting to just sit back and wait for official word to arrive, we've still got some more last-minute leaks to check out, and after word of that Android 4.4 cloud backup business, we're hearing a bit more about what to expect from the platform. The big news could be a new way to use NFC, no longer relying on the “secure element” in NFC chips to conduct mobile payments. It's access to this element that carriers used to block deployment of ...

    The official launch of Android 4.4 Kit Kat could be just days away. Well, we mean three days, as November 1 is the most recent date to find itself named as a potential candidate for the Nexus 5's debut, but whether it launches then, next week, or later in the year, it's coming sooner or later, and bringing Android 4.4 along for the ride. As we drive ourselves crazy looking for any and all evidence as to when this will actually go down, Nestlé has a short little teaser for us, going up on the company's Kit Kat YouTube page today. As you can see in the spot below, one Android slyly tricks ...

    There comes a time when you just gotta do what the readers want. Particularly when their demands are awesome. You tweeted, you pleaded, you emailed, you told us in person at trade shows and during mildly creepy public run-ins: "have Marques Brownlee on the Weekly!" you demanded. And after weeks of dancing around schedules, overseas trips, and major product releases, we've finally managed to make it happen. For the first time in recorded history, MKBHD and Pocketnow have collaborated to bring you two full hours of audio-podcast goodness. That sounds a lot more grandiose than three guys ...

    Apple just released iOS 7 (which what some would say includes "heavy hints of Android") and we all suspect that Google is nearing the release of the next version of its OS: Android 4.4 KitKat. As such, everyone is busying trying to guess what Google could have in store for us, and what we might see when KitKat comes to our phones. To that end, we've been busy scratching our heads, and asking ourselves, if we were Google, what would we put into the next version of Android? What new features and changes will it bring? Here are some of our Android 4.4 speculations. Cards everywhere ...

Lets cut through all the buzz-words and hype, and get to the bottom of it. Here's everything you need to know about 64-bit smartphones. 64-bit is faster Ask anyone, 64-bit is faster than 32-bit, right? Well, not exactly. To explain, let's go back to desktop computers. 64-bit environments are made up of both hardware and software components. At the ...

    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 ...

    Some rumors in the smartphone industry have a way of blurring the lines between confirmation and speculation; look at those rumors of Apple's September 10 event, insistent to the point that we started taking their accuracy for granted, and sure enough, now look to be right on the money. Then again, we have cases where these same long-standing, widely accepted rumors end up completely missing the mark; that's where we are now, as we learn that Google has erected a new Android lawn sculpture, apparently confirming the next Android release as not the rumored Key Lime Pie, but Kit Kat, instead ...
