Nokia's Lumia 920 is its higher-end of the company's two Windows Phone 8 launch devices. It runs a 1.5GHz dual-core S4, has a 4.5-inch HD display, and 32GB of internal flash. The 920 marks the arrival of Nokia's PureView tech on a Windows Phone handset, using optical image stabilization and sporting impressive low-light performance. The handset supports LTE 4G, and can be charged wirelessly.

    We love us some new technology, and we certainly give it its fair shake on today's episode of the Pocketnow Weekly. But every so often, you need to give a little lip-service to the tech of days gone by. The platforms and devices of yesteryear. That's right: I'm talking about dead technology. It makes sense, then, that a man going by the twitter handle DeadTechnology is here to help us dust off those fond memories. In his inaugural visit to the Pocketnow Weekly, our own Adam Doud pulls back the veil of public apathy secrecy surrounding the phenomenon of the "webOS meetup," a regular ...

    Just under a week ago, we caught wind of the 1308 update for the Nokia Lumia 920 on AT&T lurking on Nokia's servers, thanks to some NaviFirm exploration. That had us thinking that the update's public distribution was just around the corner (sparing you from losing all your data with a manual flash), but we were unsure as to precisely when that might be. Well, it turns out that day is today, as we've just gotten word that the 1308 update is currently available OTA. We've talked about this release a couple times before, but to refresh your memory 1308 fixes issues with "other" storage ...

    Back in December, we talked to you a little bit about the dormant FM radio hardware that resided in the chipsets of some Nokia Lumias. In fact, it was Nokia itself that pointed this out, which seemed a little odd to do when Windows Phone 8 didn't offer any kind of FM radio hardware support. Did Nokia know something we didn't? That's what we're wondering now, after hearing rumors about the WP8 GDR2 release, which will supposedly enable the FM radio on models like the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920. Beyond those two, any other WP8 models with the necessary hardware will see the feature enabled, and ...

    The Pocketnow Weekly podcast is a labor of love for those of us who routinely grace its silvery sound waves. It takes a lot of effort and time to put the Weekly on the feeds every seven days, and we're pretty proud of the listenership we've accrued since re-launching our podcast presence lo those many months ago. Since that reboot, the podcast has grown in scope and in refinement: we've added such luxuries as topic lists, time codes with jump points, and a rotating cast of co-hosts - but we've never tweaked the YouTube presence of the Weekly. For eight months, listeners taking in our ...

    Remember the Lumia 920 Windows Phone build 1308 update we told you about earlier this month? The one that fixed issues with "other" storage and added the new settings to let you tweak the phone's display? While those first files were for Swedish 920s, the AT&T versions have apparently just appeared on Nokia's servers, hinting that distribution could be only a short time away Indeed, updates for all the various 920 color options appear in Navifirm, marked for AT&T subscribers. While the update was previously seen for other carriers, we realize AT&T is the one many of you are ...

    Here's a little mini-Pocketnow Insider for you: next week, I had a TLDR piece scheduled entitled "Hey Microsoft: Where's Pandora for Windows Phone?" The company must've sensed my intentions (or, you know, grown tired of hearing the shouted demands of millions of its vocal customers) because today, it took the wraps off Pandora for Windows Phone 8. Microsoft and Pandora say the popular music-streaming app has been rebuilt from the ground up for Windows Phone 8, and it shows. From the tiled stations screen to the panoramic scrolling, this is a Modern UI design through and through. There are ...

    Update: In response to commenter suggestions, we've added some more daylight photos to broaden thescope of this comparison. You can find a side-by-side example above, and the raw shots in two new, smaller galleries at the bottom. Thanks for your feedback! ___ The HTC One, as we mentioned in yesterday's unboxing and hardware tour, is a crucial device for the Taiwanese smartphone maker. Its brand has suffered a steady decline since its heyday of the last decade, and HTC is -for the second year in a row- banking on a device called the "One" to save it from the crippling pressure of the ...

    Ever recorded a 90-minute podcast full of Skype-related artifacts and drop-outs, only to find once you wrap it up that you used the wrong mic? If so, you know the pain we've experienced cutting together today's episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. Sorry for the levels on this one, folks; it's unfortunate, and we've done all we can to normalize them, but you're probably going to be twisting your volume knob an awful lot over the course of this here episode. On the bright side, if you manage to endure, you'll be treated to some excellent discussion on everything from Galaxy S IV leaks to ...

    A few hours back we told you about a new Lumia 920 update that had surfaced on the Nokia Care Suite, one which finally gave users a way to manage the storage space taken open by their "other" files. That's just the tip of the iceberg, as it turns out, and since then we've gotten a bunch of new, interesting details on this software build. Looking for this 1308 firmware in Navifirm has revealed that this is apparently an in-testing beta version of the anticipated GDR2 Windows Phone 8 release, the one we first saw mentioned alongside the HTC Tiara, and has been rumored for distribution in ...

    Yesterday we heard from Microsoft's Joe Belfiore about a number of changes in the works for Windows Phone, including the note that the company was working on doing something about the situation with "other" files. Users have been frustrated at having little control over how their phones treat this temporary storage, both increasing and decreasing without their interaction. Now we might just know how that change will arrive, upon a new firmware for the Lumia 920 including the option to both manually and automatically clear out these temp files. Granted, while that doesn't give you full, ...

    Last September, I was standing outside a venue in New York City, talking with the man himself, Michael Fisher. We were in line for the Nokia Lumia 920 announcement, trying not to drool all over ourselves in anticipation of what I then believed would be the device of the 2012. Leaving the event and having every attempt to hold the device myself snuffed, I was a tad disappointed. Not only because I merely got to touch the display for a few seconds, but also because the device turned out to be just as fallible to the barrage of hype and rumors as any other device. When first announced, its ...

    After closely inspecting the Lumia 720, the highest-end amongst the Windows Phones announced by Nokia today at MWC, we're stacking it up against the now already established and respectable Lumia 920. We're looking at specs, build quality and features as well as software. Of course, the Lumia 920 is a PureView device -- the one with the Optical Image Stabilization capability as its main feature -- and its internals are better than the ones used in the Lumia 720, however, the latter has an expandable memory via the microSD slot. Check out all of that and more in the video below!

    We've had the opportunity to hear about Nokia's Windows Phone model RM-860 a couple times recently, first learning that it's coming to Verizon, and just yesterday finding out that it has a 1280 x 728 resolution, possibly painting it as the carrier's version of the Lumia 920, if not another higher-end Windows Phone 8 device. We're still waiting for confirmation on just what device it actually is, and as we look forward to Monday's Nokia MWC press event, where there's a chance we might hear the phone announced, it's managed to pop up in the FCC's database, where it shows its certification ...

    Earlier this week we learned about some data Alan Mendelevich from AdDuplex had uncovered about new Nokia models through connection info collected from those devices, and now he's back at it, sharing some more data on some and spotting what just might be a Nokia tablet. That model RM-860 we saw earlier, the one identified as running on Verizon's network, is now identified as having a 1280 x 768 resolution. As a result, it could be the carrier's Lumia 920 that we've heard so much about. If not, it's clearly another higher-end model. The most interesting device here could be the RX-108, ...

    In the far-off reaches of Barcelona, two men fight for the right to party tell their tale. Battling narrow urban canyons, strange fast-food condiments, kielbasa-selling mobile-phone salesmen, and seagulls with voices only seagull mothers could love, they fight tooth and nail to share their story. The story of the wonders of mobile technology. You won't hear about all of the weird encounters that have greeted Anton D. Nagy and Michael Fisher since their arrival in Spain for the 2013 Mobile World Congress, but you'll definitely get a taste of what it's been like on the first harrowing day ...
