    January: the post-holiday comedown mixes with the post-CES recovery and pre-MWC quiet to form a lull of epic proportions. Fortunately though, leaks and rumors never stop, and we've got a few of them to bat around on this episode of the Weekly. Today, Joe Levi and Anton D. Nagy each return to the podcast to talk rumored Sony Xperia tablets, LG Windows Phones, and the will-it-never-die speculation surrounding a cheap iPhone. Also making the cut: the HTC M7 and Samsung Galaxy S IV, the Huawei Ascend W2, and some far-out pseudo-news regarding LG's supposed "Nexus 5" and "Nexus 7.7." All that, ...

    Just a few months after Windows Phone 7 launched as a platform, we heard LG talking in January 2011 about its disappointments up until then with sales of the Optimus 7 and Quantum. Granted, things were just getting started for WP7, but even with that in consideration, LG just wasn't seeing the sales that it had projected. While this early reaction didn't bode well for the company's relationship with the OS, LG seemed at the time that it still wanted Windows Phone to succeed, and that it would give the situation a chance to improve. Now, well over a year later, it seems that LG's patience ...

    If you were interested in picking-up some first-generation Windows Phone hardware on AT&T, you had better get your act together and move quickly. We just heard about the Surround, with its unique slide-out speakers, being marked for end-of-life status. It now looks like AT&T may be wiping its stable of Windows Phone devices clean, with the Samsung Focus and LG Quantum now joining the Surround in the EOL club. This news comes via a pair of screenshots from AT&T's internal computers, where both phones are clearly marked as having reached their end-of-life designation. That's not exactly ...

    Windows Phone Mango is probably the most anticipated platform (refresh) for mobile devices coming out of Redmond. Those lucky (brave) enough already got a taste of Mango using Beta or RTM versions and, while we showed you how to downgrade to NoDo, it appears that Microsoft will make an upgrade path available that doesn't need you to revert. Here's the status of the Mango updates for the U.S. carriers, according to current reports: Sprint will most probably start the roll-out process of Mango for its Arrive Windows Phone. If the information on its own support page is to be believed (and we ...

    OEMs have a dedicated section in the Windows Phone Marketplace where they add own applications for users rocking phones made by them (and sometimes other apps). It looks like LG has started updating some of its own applications, making them ready for Windows Phone's Mango update. In the image above we are trying to download LG's own ScanSearch to an LG Optimus 7 running Windows Phone 7 Mango Build 7720 RTM. We get a warning that the application is taking use of a hardware component that is not present on our device. That, coupled with the ability to fast-app-switch makes the ScanSearch app ...

    Some really strange things going on in downtown Smallville! Last week we saw an HTC Hero Android smartphone running Windows Phone 7 and today we get a chance to look at another Frankenstein monster: LG Quantum running Windows Phone 6.5 The LG Quantum is also known as the LG Optimus 7Q and together with the LG Optimus 7 is an LG Windows Phone running Windows Phone 7. Episode 18 of Season 10 from Smallville shows the above marketing aberration -- or just another super-secret prototype like the one last week which we'll never see in stores. It's good to see a Windows Phone 6.5 taskbar after ...

    LG, as other Windows Phone 7 OEMs, has a dedicated section in the Marketplace only for owners of the manufacturer's smartphones. That section, besides free apps for LG Windows Phone owners, got richer with a program called LGHangul, a Korean input application. LGHangul, as the description says, "is the easiest way to type Korean on your Windows Phone". One of the flaws -- or not addressed lacks -- of Windows Phone is the thin support for localization and additional languages. A new set will be added this year, hopefully with Mango, but until then, users speaking Korean for instance can ...

    We know that both the pre-NoDo as well as the NoDo update for Windows Phone 7 is about to begin hitting AT&T devices in a couple of days and Microsoft's Eric Hautala lets us know the updates will also contain some special features. The AT&T Windows Phone 7 updates will contains two special features, one of which is the neat WISPr support allowing devices to automatically switch to AT&T hotspots when available. The second will offer smartphones support for the AT&T Address Book. On a general note concerning updates which we know not only contain Microsoft code but third-party codes too, ...

    After Microsoft last updated its Windows Phone 7 update schedule, it looked like the HTC Surround, LG Quantum, and Samsung Focus on AT&T might be getting their shots of NoDo this month; we had estimated that they could all go out around the week of April 20. A leaked email, purportedly an insider AT&T document, sheds some new light on the scheduling, and it's a mix of good and bad news. Good news first: it looks like the Quantum and Focus will fulfill our prediction, rumored to get their updates on April 19. Both the pre-NoDo and NoDo proper will be going out all at once to these ...

    While T-Mobile WP7 users are enjoying their new NoDo updates, those of you who chose to go with AT&T are still waiting for the official updates to head out. Microsoft's responded to growing concern amongst the owners of WP7 devices anxiously awaiting for updates by setting up a status page that, while not incredibly detailed, gives some idea of how far along each WP7 smartphone is in the process. Microsoft has just updated the page, giving us some more news about when to expect NoDo on the HTC Surround, LG Quantum, and Samsung Focus. Though all three AT&T phones are still marked as in the ...
