Not all of us have read 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 [...]
LG’s new phablet in town, the Optimus G Pro hasn’t even been globally released yet, and it’s already breaking some sales records. So far the device sold 10k units in the first day in Korea, and it just reached 500k units sold in 40 days, and still ahead of it’s global launch planned some time within the current month of April.

Watch today’s Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the Galaxy Note 8.0 one more time, hoping this is actually the last because so many rumors without a device tend to bore. Then we move to the Galaxy S IV, which now has a new and earlier release date rumor. LG is next as we talk about their new Optimus G Pro and the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor included. Nokia is next as apparently MWC 2013 will show us four smartphones to be released, and no tablet. We end today’s show talking about the Ubuntu Tablet that’ll be released tomorrow.
