    The official Google event, where we're expecting the new Nexus 7 to be unveiled -- among other things -- is going to happen today, at Noon EDT. Of course, we'll be all over that with our, by now usual, live first impressions, but some lucky folks already managed to get their hands on what appears to be the full-retail Google Nexus slate. Apparently, the leaked renders we've seen seem to match up perfectly with the device pictured above, and below. The device, codenamed "Razor", was also benchmarked and the apps used to test its performance unveiled its full list of specs: ...

    We've been seeing a fantastic amount of info concerning this year's hardware refresh of the Nexus 7 tablet turn up lately. That's started to include some official-looking press renders of the tablet, and earlier today we saw its appearance in a leaked retailer circular. In those, the wallpaper displayed matched what we're used to from the Nexus 10; that's led to a few questions about Google's M.O. for launches, since especially if we're seeing Android 4.3 arrive with this guy, we'd expect to see it get a new, fresh-looking wallpaper. Ask and ye shall receive, for this latest round of new ...

    Rumors about a next-gen Nexus 7 tablet really picked up in intensity last week, delivering the first compelling visual evidence of the tablet to date. We followed that up with some really nice-looking press renders over the weekend, and today get to augment all that with one more view of the hardware, alongside a new leak giving some additional insight into Google's launch plans. Those earlier renders showed off the new Nexus 7 from the front and rear, and to that, tipster @evleaks adds a new side view, visible down below. More interesting than that, perhaps, a leaked Best Buy circular ...

    The official unveiling of the ASUS-made Nexus tablet might be a couple of days away but we've already seen some pictures (and video) of the refresh. Apparently, and matching those pictures, an official Nexus 7 follow-up render of the  has been leaked. Of course, we have no information related to the internals of the slate but from what we can see, it matches the info leaked previously, including the main camera on the back, rumored to be a five-megapixel shooter. Reports are claiming that the seven-inch display will have a resolution of 1900x1200 pixels and there will allegedly be two ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the Moto X event finally becoming a reality on August 1st. Nokia's Lumia 521 is next, as it may not be hot in specs or features, but it sure is hot for its $100 price tag on T-Mobile. New Nexus 7 leaks show hardware details, and another look at Android 4.3 on the Nexus 4 show significant improvements in performance. VLC for the iPhone and iPad is next, as Apple has finally approved it again, but hurry up and download it before Apple changes its mind. We end today's show talking about Sony's new idea of bringing their Alpha department together ...

    A little earlier this week, we got a pretty nice look at what purported to be the new Nexus 7 tablet, but it wasn't without its problems. For instance, some of the specs just didn't make much sense, and it very well might just be prototype hardware. Today we hear another opinion on what to expect from the next version of this tablet, with a leak mentioning a few specs of its own, and a source chiming-in with launch claims. According to this, we're a new quad-core SoC, running at 1.5GHz, but the precise chip isn't named - could very be an S4. The display data leaves out similarly useful ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about LG's confirmation that the G2 is coming soon, and that they're dropping the "Optimus" name. Android 4.3 makes the headlines next as it was spotted running on a Google Nexus 4. The Nexus 7 is next as leaked photos and video show us how the tablet will look when it gets announced, hopefully next week. Apple takes the spotlight next as their new patent points to a full display that's capable of fingerprint scanning. We end today's show talking about the launch of the HTC One mini, and what this means for HTC fans. All this and more after the ...

    Never let it be said that Multimedia Manager Jaime Rivera isn't a trouper. In the hot Honduras heat, with no power and no A/C (and, incidentally, no shirt), he still manages to show up on-time to the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. That right there is some broadcast heroism, folks. No matter what Taylor Martin's new-office excuses are. But that's not what we're here to talk about. No, we're about a week overdue for an audio-only examination of Nokia's newest flagship, the Lumia 1020: we'll cover it's high, low, and so-so points, and debate just how much action a phone has to bring to be worth ...

    Next week's Google event will likely be focusing on a Nexus refresh. We've seen reports of how the follow-up might be priced, and now we're treated with more details about the Google slate, alongside with some pictures and a video. The device pictured and allegedly the Nexus 7 follow-up is likely a prototype. It is still manufactured by ASUS, like the original Nexus 7, and, according to the report, 16- and 32GB versions can be expected, just like there are great chances for seeing a WiFi-only, as well as a cellular-enabled flavor. Specs mentioned in the report include a seven-inch LCD ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the recently leaked renders of a possible red Nokia Lumia 1020, and the carrier it might be going to. Then we talk about the Nokia phablet that's been rumored for the last couple of months, and you won't like the news about it. The future Nexus 7 is next as it seems that it might become more expensive in its future iteration. Verizon's Motorola Droid Ultra takes the spotlight next as it seems they might get announced next week. We end today's show talking about the Google event scheduled for next week as well, and what we might get from it. ...

    With a mysterious Google event just a week away, we're understandably anxious to learn if the company might be ready to introduce the long-rumored follow-up to last summer's Nexus 7 tablet. The very affordable Android ended up being a big hit, and we've been wondering if Google would be able to recapture some of that lightning in a bottle for the sequel. Rumors have been looking to some significant hardware upgrades, but those might all come at a price: the latest leak suggests that the new Nexus 7 won't be able to meet the original's low $200 price tag. A leak outs what it calls the Nexus ...

    Ever since Google I/O, we've been wondering when Google might get around to all the announcements that didn't happen: a new Nexus tablet, maybe the Moto X, and Android 4.3. While it's not quite a lock, Google just began distributing invitations to an event next week that sure has the trappings of an Android-related announcement. Google invites the press to attend breakfast with Sundar Pichai next Wednesday, July 24. Of course, when you ask a bunch of tech journalists to come around and hang out with the head of Android, the subject matter is bound to extend beyond crullers, and with a ...

    We don't usually focus too heavily on deals here at Pocketnow, but when we see some really good ones (like that free Lumia 1020 camera grip we just told you about) we'll occasionally pass them along to you. The Nexus 7 tablet may be a year old at this point, but for a really affordable tablet with good software, its $200 price tag has been hard to beat. Sure, we're almost certainly looking at a new version of the Nexus 7 right around the corner (a refresh or replacement, we can't yet say), but if you still might be interested in picking up a first-gen Nexus 7 for a song, we have just the ...

    Shortly following CES 2012, after the $250 ASUS MeMO 7-inch tablet was announced, word of Google and ASUS teaming up to create an even cheaper tablet spread. And rumors and leaks told us practically everything we needed know about the so-called "Nexus tablet" before Google I/O 2012. During the press event, to no surprise, Google made the new, 7-inch budget tablet official. And the tech world rejoiced at all the possibilities an affordable – yet still very capable – tablet would make. Since the Nexus 7 announcement, we've seen the scope of the tablet market change significantly. Android ...

    Time to put the skeptical hat on for these alleged Nexus 7 refresh specs. The story behind this screenshot, part of a series which you can check out at the source link below, is rather interesting. We're allegedly looking at a purported live chat with an ASUS rep who apparently made some information public despite not having that specific status. Long story short: the Nexus 7 refresh specs, according to the report, will include a  seven-inch screen with 1980x1200 resolution, 2GB of RAM,  32GB of Internal Storage, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, five-megapixel rear camera, ...

    We recently had the opportunity to review the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, an experience we enjoyed primarily because of the device's innovative hardware: a 6.9mm-thick, 495g chassis that manages to squeeze water- and dust-resistance onto its list of features. Pocketnow is currently in the midst of reviewing the BlackBerry Q10, a peculiar blend of yesterday's design cues with a modern OS - and we're enjoying the feeling of real physical keys under our thumbs again. The third-generation Apple iPad and Microsoft's Surface RT also share space in our office, and we love the sturdy (if heavy) hardware ...

    Just yesterday, we were talking about the possibility of Google releasing a follow-up to last summer's Nexus 7 in the near future. We've heard a little about possible specs, and just got some news about potential price points. Today, we get some of the strongest evidence yet for new hardware, upon the paperwork for a new ASUS tablet hitting the FCC. OK, but ASUS makes plenty of tablets, right? Granted, but check out the info box below, where this model K009 is clearly marked as a Nexus model. The hardware run-down that follows sure seems to match a lot of the rumors we've heard about a new ...

    Google's Nexus 7 is fast coming up on its one year birthday. As such, it's practically ancient in the smartphone/tablet world, and there's been a flurry of interest lately in talking about a possible sequel. Specifically, much of that has been looking to the ideas of upgrades in display resolution and to the tablet's SoC. The latest rumors to arrive don't touch on specs, but instead try to suss out just when the tablet might launch, and what we could hope to pay. Digitimes is once again turning to its supply chain sources for today's news, which paint the picture of a Google beginning to ...

    What a long, strange trip the Nexus 7 dock has had on its way through the Google Play Store. We got our first look at the dock back in December, already five months since the tablet itself became available, and then it took the dock all the way until early March before Google started hawking them itself. The dock's been in the Google Play Store for only three months, and now it already looks like Google could be giving it the boot. If you check the Play Store today, you'll see the Nexus 7 dock marked as "not available in your country." Furthermore, it doesn't show up in the list of ...

    For weeks now, Android 4.3's been hanging over us like a low lying cloud. All the signs of it are out there, but it continues to be just out of our reach. Some theories have been looking to the idea of a June launch, and as we try and suss-out just when that could take place, some evidence has arrived that, while largely circumstantial, sure has the feel of a new Android release to it. This afternoon's find is all about the Nexus 7. It turns out that the tablet just saw the publication of its Bluetooth SIG listing... again? After all, this is what the Nexus 7 went through back when it ...

    Rumors about the next Google Nexus 7 are piling up. It's normal given the fact that the first Google-tablet is turning one-year-old in just a few weeks. According to the latest report based on information from "supply-chain sources", the Next Nexus 7 tablet, the second-generation, will start shipping around the end of the second quarter. It should land on shelves the third quarter. Same sources claim knowledge about a certain LTPS -- low-temperature poly-silicon -- screen of seven-inches, produced by AU Optronics. Like its predecessor, the second-generation Nexus 7 will also be a ...

    A lily white version of Google's Nexus 4 has been teasing its existence for months now. We've had the chance to look at it from seemingly every angle under the sun, and it's pretty darn attractive. Of course, the big problem is that, now half a year since the Nexus 4's retail launch, this white version has yet to go official. As such, the white Nexus 4 has been tied to any number of rumors of refreshed Nexus 4 hardware, the idea being that Google would use the phone as an instrument by which to introduce some other new Nexus 4 feature, like proper LTE support (as opposed to any radio ...

    Google's just-announced Hangouts app is the new hottness (unless you're AT&T, apparently), so it's no surprise that Google is excited about spreading the word. To that end, it's thrown together a video demo showing some of what Hangouts is capable of, and how it lets you connect with your friends. In the process, Google just might have revealed a new Nexus tablet... or is this just some dumb prop model we're getting needlessly worked-up over? Just around twenty seconds into the clip below, you can see a tablet in the seven-to-eight inch range with a beveled edge and a glowing ...

    As we've heard at the beginning of the month, Microsoft might be ready to announce it's second generation of Surface tablets in June. Then came those ugly rumors according to which we'd have to wait until 2014 to see some Microsoft slates and we're now, more recently, hearing confirmations that it might still be June for the second-wave Surface RT tablets. Whether our wish-list for the next Surface will be taken into consideration or not, only time will tell. However, Digitimes reports that second-generation Surface RT is expected to land in June. It should be an eight-incher and should ...
