    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the additional rumors of more than one iPhone being launched in 2013. Then Microsoft takes the spotlight as we talk about the official Microsoft Surface Pro announcement when it comes to pricing and availability. The LG Optimus G Pro is next as it just became official in Japan, and there are a lot of cool things coming with the device. Then we move to the Galaxy S IV as some of the news show some leaked image renders of how the device will look, and the other news show that the launch date will most likely not be on MWC 2013. We end today's ...

    Ever since the Surface RT launched, we've been anxiously awaiting the debut of its big brother, the beefier, Windows-8-Pro-running Surface. In late November, Microsoft finally revealed pricing data for the Surface Pro, but we still didn't have a firm date for its availability, beyond sometime in January. Well, we're deep into the month at this point, with no sign of any new Surface models; what gives? Today, Microsoft provides the Surface Pro a release date, and while it's going to miss that January window, it won't be by much: the Windows 8 Pro Surface will go up for sale on February 9. ...

    Back around the turn of the century, personal digital assistants (PDAs) were a popular secondary device that people would carry to help manage contacts, appointments, mobile web clippings, notes, and other mobile computing functions that you couldn't do with a mobile phone.  PDA's had touch-sensitive screens that were much larger than the mobile phone screens of the time and gave you a nice area to get more work done.  The power users of the time would often pair a Bluetooth capable mobile phone like the Sony Ericsson T68i with a powerful PDA like a Compaq iPAQ Pocket PC.  The Bluetooth ...

    The new Lexington platform for mobile devices in emerging markets is not the only thing that came out of Intel's labs at this year's CES. The chip-maker also announced its new line-up of low-power Ivy Bridge processors meant to drive ultrabooks and tablets. Offering five times the performance of the now quite stale NVIDIA Tegra 3, the new processors draw much less power then the current low-power processors, specifically 7 watts instead of 17. The upcoming Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S, shown off at CES, is not the only device that will pack these new processors. Apparently, Microsoft's ...

    According to "Taiwan-based notebook supply chain makers", tablets powered by Microsoft's Windows RT and Windows 8 are hard to sell; this assessment is based on low sales figures since Windows 8 was launched in late October. There are two core problems with the Microsoft-powered tablets, according to the same sources: first and foremost, they are priced higher than competing slates powered by Google's Android operating system. Second, the sources claim that the poor software title collection is also a big problem which is not helping sales at all; compared to the selection available in the ...

    Right now, if you want a Surface tablet, you've got to be lucky enough to have a Microsoft retail store nearby, or just place your order online through the company's website. While adequate, that's hardly what we'd call bold retail placement, and considering the less-than-stellar reception the Surface RT version has seen, it probably couldn't hurt Microsoft any to expose the tablet to a wider audience. To that end, rumors suggest that Microsoft is just a matter of days away from starting a big Surface retail push, getting the tablet out onto the selves of non-Microsoft stores. Supposedly, ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Apple's launch of the iPhone 5, now carrier unlocked. Then we talk about the Samsung ATIV S and its possible release date, even after all the drama of it being the first Windows Phone 8 device to be announced. Then we go through the retail price of the Microsoft Surface Pro with Windows 8, and obviously our thoughts on that price. Later our review of the Nexus 10 becomes a topic, and how well it scored. We end today's show talking about how to get Adobe Flash on Android devices launched with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and beyond. All this and more ...
