    This holiday season is shaping up to be absolutely insane in the mobile technology space, with new products landing almost more quickly than we can cover them. The pace of announcement and release shows no sign of slowing, but if you're an OEM, one of the nice things about launching a truly impressive beast of a device is that it stays in the headlines a while. Such is the case with the Galaxy Note II, a device we featured rather heavily in the weeks leading up to and following its release, crowned by the longest review I've ever written. It's one of the year's most significant devices, ...

    "Once we get a slow news week, we're gonna talk about this in-depth." That's been the go-to fallback phrase for the Pocketnow Weekly for the past few weeks, and as the holiday shopping season approaches, we doubt that's going to change anytime soon. On this installment of the densest podcast in mobile tech, we talk about the LG Optimus G and the Nexus 4, HTC's new Butterfly J, Apple's forthcoming iPad Mini, and the Microsoft Surface pre-orders and pricing. Plus, Brandon Miniman continues last week's riffing regarding pen-based input methods, and special guest Joe Levi the Android Guy, ...

    We recently took you on a guided tour of the S Pen, Samsung's special stylus for its Galaxy Note device family, but that's not the only techno-pen on the market from the world's leading handset vendor. The C Pen was announced amid the clamor of the initial Galaxy S III unveiling, alongside a flood of other accessories that have yet to see the light of day, like the bizarre S Pebble and still-mythical wireless charging pad. Unlike those, the C Pen actually made it into the real world, and we've got one in our hot little hands. Does the C Pen hold a candle to its similarly named S Pen ...

    I dropped our Galaxy Note II review unit -graciously provided by our friends at Clove- back in the mail just a few days ago. We used it as the basis for a series of feature articles, several video comparisons, and our full review last week, and its departure is already giving me a case of Empty Nest syndrome. There's a lot I miss -and some I don't- about carrying the world's newest, biggest, baddest phablet ... but you'll have to wait for the latest edition of Empty Nest to drop before you get to read all the saucy details. In the meantime, the return to more conventional smartphones has ...

    "Is it a phone? Is it a tablet? It's Galaxy Note!" So read the quote that kicked off the ad campaign surrounding the original Galaxy Note, the 5.3-inch hybrid device Samsung unveiled last year. Like many Samsung ad slogans, this one was a tad inaccessible, but at least the first two-thirds of it accurately stated the question a lot of us were asking: was the product a smartphone or was it a tablet? And furthermore, what place did it have in the market? What exactly did "it's Galaxy Note" mean? To the surprise of some -and the delight of Samsung, no doubt- those questions didn't keep the ...

    The S Pen has been with us since the original Galaxy Note, but the one Samsung is packaging with the new Galaxy Note II is an improved model. The new phablet also offers enhanced software features meant to take advantage of the most advanced stylus implementation ever to hit the smartphone market. Michael Fisher, fresh from hands-on time with some awesome new AT&T devices in New York City, is due for a weekend off. Before then, though, join him for a backyard session with the Galaxy Note II he unboxed the other day. Take a tour of the new S Pen's features and capabilities, and see how ...

    When we were in Barcelona to check out the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, the follow-up to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 -- or the Galaxy Note phablet -- packed, at that moment, a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and a stylus which was separated by the tablet with no way of incorporating it. Then came all the rumors of hardware modifications Samsung might do before the tablet reaches the market and today we get the chance to see and read about some of those changes. The images were snapped at a recent Samsung event and, as far as the internals are concerned, the revamped Galaxy Tab 10.1 will feature a ...
