    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 ...

    HTC's been talking about its Jelly Bean update strategy for months now, with some early statements back in July more recently followed up by news that the One V, and the majority of other 512MB devices, wouldn't be seeing the update land. We've seen the One X start getting its JB update, but what about HTC's other Androids with sufficient RAM? Well, the manufacturer has yet to release a comprehensive list, only saying that it would first concentrate its efforts on 2012 releases, but a list has leaked over the weekend that attempts to enumerate just which handsets are on HTC's agenda. This ...

    One week back, rumors started arriving that the HTC One VX, which was a mysterious no-show after it didn't launch on AT&T in November as the carrier previously announced, would finally make an appearance today, on December 7. Better late than never, we suppose, and the One VX has gone and confirmed those rumors with its arrival at AT&T earlier today. The VX fills a mid-range spot in HTC's One-series lineup, where it seems just slightly less well-equipped than the One S. Not everything's a downgrade, though, and while the One VX keeps the qHD resolution of the One S, it graduates to ...

    What happened to the HTC One VX on AT&T? The carrier announced the phone, alongside the One X+, back at the beginning of October, and then earlier this month it confirmed that both HTC models would be going up for sale on November 16. Well, that was true enough for the One X+, but the VX never managed to surface. While AT&T has been almost suspiciously quiet about the phone's (lack of) arrival, at least one carrier spokesperson is now willing to answer questions about the One VX, finally giving us an update as to the handset's retail launch. According to this AT&T mouthpiece, ...

    There's no better news, than those that have to do with device launches. Those of you curious as to when AT&T will launch most of their fall line-up of smartphones, the wait is over. As of today you may hit AT&T stores for the HTC One X+, which is being sold for $199 after a two-year contract. That drops the price of the old HTC One X to just $99 after a contract if you're still interested. In the case of the HTC One VX, which is more of HTC's entry-level solution on the AT&T network, well that'll cost you $49.99 after a two-year contract as well. The One VX listing is still ...

    We just heard from HTC about the fate of Jelly Bean updates for a number of its Android smartphones. While the outlook isn't sunny for all of them, the company's very latest handsets should be on-track for seeing Android 4.1 updates. Those confirmed to make the leap to Jelly Bean include the One X+ and the One VX, which we've known for some time now would be finding homes at AT&T in the States. Today, AT&T gives us the rest of the story on just how this pair will arrive, with sales starting this Friday, November 16. We've taken some time to go hands-on with both of these phones, ...

    We say it so often on the Pocketnow Weekly podcast that it's become something of a cliché: we really, really want HTC to succeed. The company has been at the forefront of our technology consciousness  for only a few years in its current incarnation, but long before it was "HTC," it built devices as an ODM for other corporations. Devices like the PPC-6700, my first true PocketPC. Devices like the Treo Pro, which helped Palm survive its leap to a new platform (albeit briefly). And since striking out on its own, the company has altered the landscape with game-changing devices like the G1, ...

    Michael and I got some to spend some time with the fine folks at AT&T at a New York City event where the company showcased their fall lineup of devices. While most of them we have seen before, there were some new devices on-hand that were just recently announced. We used the event as an opportunity to play around with some new devices, like the One X+, the One VX, the Lumia 920, and the Galaxy Camera. Check out our hands-on video below, and scroll down for some early impressions. One X+ When we reviewed the original HTC One X, we had several complaints: the camera wasn't that great, ...

    When you're coming down off a few weeks of huge news, there's a lot to sift through. On this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly, that's exactly what we're doing. Join Michael Fisher, Brandon Miniman, and -a first for the podcast- Chief News Editor Stephen Schenck for in-depth discussion on Apple's continuing iPhone 5 and iOS6 successes and failures, the latest in the annoyingly-named "mapplegate," HTC's new One X+ and One VX, speculation on the next Nexus, Nokia's terrifying new commercial aimed at the iPhone, and even a touch of webOS news. We changed up the order a bit this week, everyone, ...

    A little earlier this morning we shared with you the initial announcement of the HTC One X+, knowing that it was destined for Europe and Asia, but still awaiting news of its arrival in the States. Now AT&T has revealed that it will be giving the One X+ a home, along with another HTC Android, the One VX. Don't worry about the One X+, as this time around, HTC's headlining smartphone manages to pull off LTE without sacrificing its SoC, thanks to the new wave of Tegra 3 chips. If that sounds like too much phone for you, the One VX offers a more affordable alternative. The One VX moves down ...
