    To kick off this week's podcast, a few apologies are in order. First, we're sorry we were forced to push the Weekly further and further back until we were backed up against the cold, wet reality of a Friday afternoon - the Lumia 1020, new Nexus 7, HTC 8XT, and about forty other devices landed on our office doorsteps this week, and we're dealing the best we can with the surge. Second, we're sorry we're spending yet another week neglecting the listener-mail inbox. We didn't anticipate today's show running as long as it did (imagine that), so we didn't build it into our planning. That very ...

    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 ...

    It's not every day you schedule a podcast the day before one of the biggest Windows Phone announcements in the platform's history - but given our plans to host a special-edition Pocketnow Live event covering Nokia's NYC event tomorrow, we thought it best to get the Weekly out of the way ahead of time. That doesn't mean we don't talk Nokia - indeed, we've got Chief News Editor Stephen Schenck on the air with us this week to discuss what it's been like to follow the story of the EOS/1020/909, probably one of the most widely-leaked devices in smartphone history. We also follow the leaky ...

    It's weird when holidays fall in the middle of the week, because either you're kicking off a long weekend with the special celebration, or you're returning to work the next day with a fuzzy brain, a sunburn, and sand in your hair. We're in the latter situation this week at Pocketnow, the American portion of the team coming down from a day of BBQ and a night of fireworks ... but in our case, it's a good thing. Because today's the day for our weekly mobile tech podcast, and we love us some mobile-tech podcasting. We hope you do, too, because today's Pocketnow Weekly is quite possibly the ...

    Update 2: We have us a winner! Please join us in congratulating Julian BrecevicĀ of Australia, who'll be taking home this giveaway's LG Optimus G! Thanks to all those who helped propel our review count to stratospheric levels, almost tripling it from 29 to 89! We know some of you were upset about the iTunes-only qualifier, but we'll have more giveaways in the future, and some of them will be broader. Again, thanks so much for listening - and stay tuned for much more in the weeks and months ahead. Update: We're still waiting to hear back from our prospective winner, folks - once he replies ...

    Update: We're still waiting to hear back from our prospective winner, folks. Once we qualify his entry we'll make an announcement proper. Sorry for the delay, but we'll have this sorted out one way or the other very soon! And thanks so much for your reviews - they've already given the Weekly quite a shot in the arm, and we appreciate it. It's been a little while since we shared the wealth, and we have a special occasion coming up: episode 050 of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast is just around the corner! We wanted to celebrate our golden anniversary of tech-podcast tomfoolery with a gift to ...

    In the food service industry, when you're a server who's been slammed with too many customers and can't keep up with the demand, you're said to be "in the weeds." On a podcast, that same expression means something quite different. It means you've wandered so far from your intended topic (in this case, mobile technology) that you've found yourself in the far-flung wilderness talking about anything but (in this case, sports cars, British accents, and the adult film industry). But while we do spend a fair amount of time in OT land on today's Pocketnow Weekly, we still manage to get some tech ...

    Before we begin, we'd just like to say something to everyone who's going to call us out for click-baiting with that "Galaxy S 5" title: your allegations are completely founded and true. But look here: even though Galaxy S 5 rumors are (to say the least) premature and indicative of a serious problem with our nasty-fast industry -an issue we discuss on the air- they're also important. That's because, as unreliable and, frankly, stupid as they are, they also give us an opportunity to discuss the future of Samsung industrial design. And any opportunity we get to talk about the Galaxy family in ...

    Sometimes you get listener mail that asks how the band got together in the first place. Sometimes that happens the day after you drop some nostalgic sentimentalism all over the internet. Sometimes, simultaneously, there are some sweet, juicy rumors and leaks about a top-of-the-line camera phone with what looks like a moon crater on it. Sometimes you gotta put all that into a podcast with the original cadre of Pocketnow 'casters, and see what comes out. All that, plus the longest outtake reel in the history of Pocketnow, more Nokia EOS rumors than you can shake a stick at, the first-ever ...

    We had an interesting bit of synchronicity crop up in the offices of Pocketnow -and in the recording studios of our weekly tech podcast- this week: we're simultaneously in possession of one of the thinnest, newest tablets in the world - and one of the clunkiest, oldest ones. The interesting part about the latter: it never officially existed. We'll talk about that, plus rumors of yet another mini-Galaxy that ain't bashful about skimping on specs, and a Motorola smartphone that's all-American from design to manufacture. We'll also cover rumors of a newer, flatter iOS 7 as well as updates to ...

    Here at Pocketnow, we like other tech sites. We share the same news space, we share a lot of editorial opinions, and we trade jokes and barbs on the Twitters, the Facebooks, and even in the godforsaken comments section. We're even starting to interact face-to-face with our foreign contemporaries in on-air venues like the Pocketnow VIP, but here at the Weekly, we thought: why let the video jocks have all the fun? Pocketnow's tech podcast deserves some love too, doesn't it? It took us 45 episodes to get there, but we're finally welcoming our first guest from outside of the Pocketnow team to ...

    Last we checked, there are 52 weeks in a year - but you wouldn't know it, given the announcement schedule of some major players in the tech space. Companies vying for the attention of fickle consumers often stack their events one right after the other in a strategic attempt to undermine competitors, sometimes hosting major announcements just days -or even hours- apart. Sometimes, it's all a tech podcast team can do to keep up. Such a thing happened this week, with Nokia preempting Google's annual I/O developer conference with an announcement of its own: the Lumia 925, a mid-cycle Windows ...

    At Pocketnow, we have a responsibility to try the new, the fresh, and the weird - and that latter swamp is exactly the one Managing Editor Anton D. Nagy waded into with his recent review of the ASUS Fonepad - the tablet with an earpiece. Or the phone with a tablet screen. Whatever you want to call it, we've covered it - and Tony has some thoughts about using a seven-inch smartphone in this edition of one of your favorite tech podcasts. After we clear the giant-phone convo, we've got more to say. Lots more. And, doubtless to the relief of thousands, very little of it involves Samsung's ...

    Not all of us have readĀ The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, so not all of us were exactly qualified to make the lame joke that kicks off this week's podcast. But we made it, and we stand behind it. Because as hundreds of fifth-rate "manufacturers" well know, sometimes you just have to fake it. But we're not talking about secondhand knockoff products in this episode of the Weekly. Rather, we get serious about octa-core comparisons, the till-recently-mythical HTC M4, the insanely cheap new Lumia out of Finland, and just how tired we are or aren't of the Samsung Galaxy S 4. In between, we ...

    There are devices that deserve a modicum of coverage, and then there are devices that call for a maelstrom of coverage. Samsung's Galaxy S 4, the most hotly anticipated Android smartphone of 2013 so far, easily falls into the latter category, and we have no qualms about devoting an entire podcast to discussing the latest Google-powered beast out of Seoul. Tune in as Master Chief Stephen Schenck, Figurine Boatswain Taylor Martin, and Captain 2 Phones take you for an auditory tour of the high and low points of the Galaxy S 4, calling on the kind of strung-out expertise that only nine days ...
