    The Nexus 4 launches, and a man in Pennsylvania does his best to keep Google's latest and greatest -and slipperiest- from sliding off tabletops. The Lumia 920 lands, and a man in Boston moves back into an old apartment called Windows Phone - but the place isn't the same as he left it. The Droid DNA launches, and all America is atwitter with talk of 1080p, nonremovable storage, and HTC making Sense out of Jelly Bean. And over in Romania, one man watches, waits, and wonders what all the fuss is about. That's about the shape of this week's installment of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, on the ...

    "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 ...

We've been covering it in editorial and video pieces for a solid week, and now we get to talk about it on the air.  On this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly, we're talking Galaxy Note II. Of course, that's not all we're chatting about on this episode of the podcast. Join us for discussion about last week's AT&T event in NYC, Samsung's new Galaxy S III Mini and weird little Galaxy Music, HTC's future prospects and the Windows Phone 8X versus the Nokia Lumia 920, and the iPhone's continuing Maps ...

    Apple recently abandoned Google Maps in favor of their own home-grown solution. Or did they? Before we dive too deep it's important to underscore the fact that iOS never had a "Google Maps" app, rather, it had a Maps app that used the Google Maps API. Perhaps that's nit-picking, but understanding the difference will help us understand the reasons for the decision to abandon Google's maps (API) and go with their own. What's an API?

    You won't find many people that will argue with the statement that Nokia makes some really great hardware. What some may not know is that Nokia can also develop some pretty nice software, too! Meego was proof of that, before the project was killed off. Today Nokia and Microsoft are buddies. An advantage Nokia phones had over other Windows Phones was the inclusion of their own location-based apps, most notably Drive. Nokia Drive is an intelligent GPS-based navigation app with some logic built in to help monitor traffic and dynamically re-route based on conditions. Sounds familiar, right? ...
