    Prologue The Pocketnow Live show went on a summer hiatus almost four months ago, with our Season Finale from June 14. We promised it will be back after the summer, and boy, it's been a busy summer, with a lot going on! This is just perfect, because we'll have a lot to talk about once we kick off our second season of the show. ...and it's time to kick it off! Topic For our first episode of Season Two we though we'd prepare something special. Despite busy schedules, time zones, and everything, we'll try to bring the majority of the Pocketnow team for the first part of the show. Yes, there ...

    For a while now, the mobile-tech review landscape has looked much the same. Reviewers like us craft lengthy written pieces packed with charts, photos, and videos, and readers like you ... read them. Sure, you have the opportunity to respond in the comments, and most good editors will answer questions there, but there's precious little real-time interaction between reader and reviewer. There's not much chance to ask questions, seek clarifications, or take a quick look at that one little detail. For a while, we've been trying to break down the wall between reviewer and reader - to allow you ...

    Love it or hate it, there's no denying that both customers and competitors are all waiting to see what Apple has up their sleeves tomorrow. Whether it's just an iterative update to their current line-up, or a significant revamp to what we currently know, tomorrow it's all about the iPhone. We've heard lots of rumors, ranging from a iPhone 5S, to an budget-friendly iPhone 5C, to the possible launch dates of iOS 7, there's a lot to expect. Apple's event happens Tuesday, September 10th at 1:00 PM Eastern, 10:00 AM Pacific, and we'd love for you to join us in our live Editorial Roundtable, as ...

    It's finally that time of year for the city of Berlin to take over the world of Mobile Technology through their yearly IFA event. In the past, it was just another event where we had no clear expectations, but in the last two years, it's been about Samsung, and more specifically about their new iterations of the Galaxy Note smartphones. The Samsung Unpacked event happens tomorrow at 1PM Eastern, and aside from all the hands-on coverage that both Michael and Anton will get us from the show floor, we'll also cover the event live through our usual Editorial Roundtable. We still don't have ...

    In the world of mobile technology, you'll find controlled leaks, uncontrolled leaks, and around five steps ahead of each, you'll find the LG G2. This got so out of hand in recent times that LG was simply forced to admit that there was an LG G2 in the works, and that they'd put all the rumors to rest in an event, which happens tomorrow. Now, this phone is bigger than what we'll see at the event. Last year, the Optimus G1 was the basis for the Google Nexus 4 that we all love, and if the reports are true, the future Nexus smartphone will be based on this G2 as well. Join us for the LG G2 ...

    It's hard to remember a time when we've seen a phone leaked so much, and for so long, in order to create the amount of anticipation that exists behind the Moto X. Some of us are even worried that the device will not live-up to the amount of hype that's been created in the media over the last couple of months, and we won't deny that some of us even believed this phone would never see the light of day. Still, the waiting days are finally over. Google's Moto X event happens tomorrow, and in a very peculiar fashion. Our own Michael Fisher will be in New York City for our usual round of ...

    Everyone, the time has come. Those of you that were disappointed at Google not announcing a new version of Android, or their update to the Nexus 7 at Google I/O a couple of months ago, may find the solution to your worries tomorrow. After Apple announced iOS 7 at WWDC, it’s clear that there are a lot of things at stake that the dudes at Mountain View need to address with this event, and we do expect to be impressed. Google’s Breakfast with Sundar Pichai happens tomorrow, July 24th at Noon EST, 9:00AM Pacific and we’d love for you to join us in our usual Round Table as we discuss ...

    You knew this was going to happen. The launch of the Nokia 808 PureView back in 2012 was just the tip of the iceberg in the company's future plans for smartphone camera dominance. This day and age, it's all about our photos, sharing, and making social statements with them, and Nokia is one of the few companies that gets that right. Regardless of whether it's a photo of the cat or our favorite building, the 808 PureView wasn't really about the 41 Megapixels, but instead, of your ability to have lossless-digital zoom capabilities on the photographs. We've spent a year and a half imagining ...

    Topic Pocketnow Live kicked off twenty Fridays ago. We can't even believe it ourselves that we're at the twentieth installment of a show that is highly popular not only among our viewers, readers, audience in general, but also among members of the team. Episode 20 is also the Season Finale. We're wrapping up Season One with the team that kicked it off. Worry not, we're not only planning on Season Two, but thinking way ahead. So, before we take a break from the Live, let's have a great casual conversation one more time. Plenty of things going on, from the Galaxy Mega and HP TouchPad Go ...

    Topic Today is the day Apple will make it or break it. We're giving our Apple WWDC 2013 first impressions, live, as things happen, in a special episode of Pocketnow Live. You can tune in to watch us comment on news in real time, as usual, in a live, public (but closed) hangout. Apple is expected to unveil it's next generation of iOS today: iOS 7. Whether there will be mobile hardware (aside from laptops) is yet unknown but we wouldn't count on it. However, rumors of an iRadio streaming service are rather frequent and there has to be, as usual, "one more thing". The keynote will start at ...

    Update: Due to technical difficulties, Stephen Schenck will not be able to join the Hangout today. Topic Next up on the list of major players to hold an event is the iPhone-maker. Apple WWDC 2013 is happening on Monday, June 10, and there have been lots of rumors, some even conflicting, regarding the event. Tim Cook almost confirmed iOS 7 for Apple WWDC 2013 and we know for quite some time that Johnny Ive is working on the project. Will it be something completely new or just a flatter version of iOS 6 is yet unknown. Then there are rumors of Apple's upcoming, alleged, streaming radio ...

    Topic Google Edition smartphones seem to no only be the trending topic, but also the next big thing. Those preferring a vanilla Android experience, a Nexus experience, if you will, will definitely prefer the Google Edition Samsung Galaxy S 4 and HTC One devices. Without TouchWiz or Sense, and with the latest vanilla version of stock Android, you can basically choose your own Nexus device. Is this the new trend for the future? Will we see more manufacturers adopt this dualist system of offering a device with two different user experiences? Will this mean that OEM personalization will slowly ...

    Topic Jolla unveiled their first phone this week, together with "the other half", which brings an interesting concept to the mobile world. HTC's executives are leaving the company which makes us wonder whether this is a good or a bad things. Samsung officially sold 10 million Galaxy S 4 units through its global channels and unofficial sources talk about 5 million HTC One devices being sold. All this in a context in which Microsoft downgrades its YouTube app for Windows Phone in order to comply with Google's requirements. If any of the above is not an interesting enough topic for you then ...

    Last Friday we were excited about the week ahead, this week, as it contained two days circled with very promising events: Nokia's Lumia 925 event in London and Google's I/O. Both came and passed, leaving us with a phone (or two), and ecosystem improvements. Depending on your expectations and standards your excitement probably either turned into delight or disappointment. Of course we'll talk about Nokia and Google I/O reactions, since they're the most recent (and probably among the last until the next big event of the year bringing us the next iPhone), and you can tell us why you're happy ...

    Google I/O is still underway, and even though there is still more to be seen at the event, we could say that everything we were waiting to know about Android has already been said. There's a lot that we saw that we liked, a lot that to be honest with you, we're still waiting to see if they reveal as a "one more thing", and a lot that did surprise us about Google's new approach to their yearly developer conference. We haven't seen any Key Lime Pie, we haven't seen any Android 4.3 either, and it all points to a very stale Google I/O all around. Still, not everything is lost as we finally see ...
