    The Galaxy S III's barely old enough to warrant an After The Buzz episode, but we're already talking about the Galaxy S IV. In any other venue, that would be a sign of jumping the shark; on the Pocketnow Weekly, it's just business as usual. Tune in for our best speculation on what Samsung might include in its next sensational superphone, from unbreakable screens to bone conduction. Then keep on listening for an extended debate about the merits of Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 versus iOS, drilling down into their UIs and design philosophy. Finally, after some extended talk about how useful ...

    AT&T's Lumia 820 is as close as American buyers can get to the stock midrange Windows Phone 8 experience Nokia envisioned when it announced its new smartphone line. Its hardware is indistinguishable from the international version of the device, bearing no trace of the heavy-handed physical customizations that mark the other Lumia 8xx carrier variants we've seen. We recently reviewed each of those spiritual contemporaries, the Lumia 810 for T-Mobile and the Lumia 822 for Verizon Wireless, and now it's time we turned our focus to the baseline model. We've already compared it with ...

    SO MANY LUMIAS. We don't know about you, but that's what's been going through our minds recently. Here at Pocketnow, our familiarity with the midrange Lumia 8xx series has skyrocketed over the past few weeks. We've given the full-review treatment to the Lumia 810 for T-Mobile USA, launched a new review format with the Lumia 822 for Verizon Wireless, and now we've got a new mid-tier Lumia in our hot little hands: a Nokia Lumia 820 for AT&T. We already unboxed this unit last week, taking you on a little hardware tour before promising more videos "in the next few days." Those days have ...

    We're no stranger to the Lumia 8xx series of Windows Phone 8 devices here at Pocketnow. The Lumia 810 got our full review treatment a little while back, the Lumia 822 helped us launch our new Quick Review format just a couple days ago, and just this afternoon, we received the device that served as the basis for both of those custom variants. Its 4.3-inch AMOLED display, 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU, and 8MP camera haven't changed, but the radio guts, casing design, look and feel are something else entirely. Behold: the Nokia Lumia 820 for AT&T. Click below for the first of the ...

    Microsoft kick-starts the smack-talk machine, which blows up in its face just as Nokia sells its own headquarters. The Lumia 822 gives us an excuse to launch a brand-new review format, while a Nexus 4 trade lets us take a post-review look at Google's latest smartphone. The iPhone 5S breaks its cover -maybe- while the Nexus 10 gives everyone a reason to care about big Android tablets - again, maybe. Rumors of a new 1080p device from LG get the speculation bonfire going again, but a cool bucketful of Google Play-colored cold water got us back on track. And, of course, it wouldn't be a ...

    You can create ringtones for your Windows Phone 8 but if you have one of the newer Lumia phones from Nokia, like the Lumia 920, Lumia 820 (and its Lumia 810, Lumia 822 variants) you might be interested in checking out this Ringtone Maker application from the company that branded your phone. It is available in your Nokia Collection (as well as accessible via the link below) and, as the description states, it will help you create ringtones. You can do so by using music on your phone which can be saved as a ringtone by opening the app and selecting the MP3 file. Of course you can trim the ...

    The Nokia Lumia 920 has been getting all the media love since its unveiling several months back, mostly at the expense of its less-remarkable Lumia 820 sibling. But much as T-Mobile USA did with the Lumia 810 we recently reviewed, Verizon Wireless asked Nokia to make a customized variant of the "littler Lumia" for itself. The result: the Nokia Lumia 822, an LTE-packing Windows Phone 8 device with a somewhat homely design, but lots of features to call its own. We're in the midst of giving the 822 the quick-review treatment, and if you haven't seen it yet, head on back to our unboxing and ...

    We've already reviewed one variant of Nokia's midrange Lumia 820 -the Luma 810 for T-Mobile USA- but there's enough different on both the inside and the outside of Verizon Wireless' variant that we thought we'd take another dip into the mid-tier Windows Phone 8 pool. The 822 is a curvier, thicker, but lighter take on the Lumia 820, with a design that summons images of a pebble when viewed from behind, and whose front side packs a little more "chin music" than we're used to. It runs the latest version of Windows Phone 8, projecting it onto a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display. It's powered ...

    "Shorten your topic list," they said. "The show won't run as long," they said. An hour and a half later, another lengthy episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast is ready for your listening enjoyment. And make no mistake: we could have talked for another 40 minutes at least. That's not because it's been a huge news week, but because our discussion topics are dense and detailed. Topics like phone reviews, new platforms, and 1080p screens. Subjects like GPS navigation, wide-angle smartphone cameras, and whether Google should become a wireless carrier. The merits and shortcomings of the Lumia ...

    In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different. -Coco Chanel We're not sure whether Coco's perspective applies in every situation, but America's number-four wireless carrier has certainly taken the advice to heart with its latest Windows Phone offering. T-Mobile USA claims the Nokia Lumia 810 as an "exclusive," and indeed, no other carrier currently offers this Lumia variant for sale. While its internals are effectively identical to its close cousins, the Lumia 820 and Lumia 822, the 810 differs significantly in terms of its physical design, and T-Mobile has made sure to ...

    Several months back, I wrote a piece explaining why it's the rate plans, not device prices, that customers should focus on when buying subsidized smartphones in the U.S. That's because, while shelling out a mountain of dollars for a smartphone at a retail store feels a lot more costly than paying $80 a month for a wireless bill, the reality is that the monthly bill will cost you much more over the course of a two-year contract. I'm not sure people, as a whole, have gotten the point yet. That's probably because reality's hard to accept, companies obscure the true cost of their services, ...

    It's been nearly six months since we last hosted a Windows Phone device in the Boston offices of Pocketnow, but in the past six hours we've welcomed in two of the newest and hottest. The Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 810 each enjoyed an unboxing in our studio this afternoon. Neither is a light or a small device, but the product we tour in this video is bigger and heavier than both of them combined. Times ten. It must've been all the excitement around the Windows Phone 8 launch, coupled with the irresistible promise of wireless charging mated with loud, bass-y audio. When I reported to ...

Then we go through AT&T's confirmed prices for Windows Phone 8 device this holiday season, which comes to the pleasant surprise of many of us in cases like the Nokia Lumia 920. Then we talk about the death of Microsoft's Windows Live Messenger and their migration to Skype. We end ...

    Windows Phone 8 handsets are just about to drop, though many of us have still been wondering when exactly when we'd get the specifics on just how they'd arrive. Yesterday, we thought we finally had the scoop on the Nokia Lumia 920 and its launch on AT&T, tipped to arrive for just about $150 on-contract. It turns out that was not just a little premature, but slightly off, as well; today AT&T makes things official, announcing pricing and availability for the Lumia 920, Lumia 820, and HTC Windows Phone 8X. Instead of $150, the Lumia 920 will sell for just under $100. Just like we ...
