    CES 2013 is over, and despite the fact that we cranked out about thirty videos covering products ranging from super-phablets to fuel cells, some of us still came away a little disappointed by what was ultimately a very light show, hardware-wise. Whether you were encouraged, let down, or completely unmoved by CES 2013, two things are true. First, you probably missed something amid the torrential downpour of 24-hour news; fortunately, our own Anton D. Nagy has you covered with an extensive wrap-up of our coverage from start to finish. Second -and more germane to our current focus- the ...

    This year's Consumer Electronics Show from Las Vegas has come and gone. As usual, we've been both on-site bringing you coverage from events as well as the show floor, and here on Pocketnow, keeping you up to date with what's going on in the mobile world. For some the show has been excellent; for others it has been a letdown. We can't compare CES to a specialized mobile event like MWC (maybe with IFA); still, our experience from past years has taught us to expect certain things to happen at CES. They might or might not have happened in a straightforward way but there was a lot of innovation ...

    Veni, vidi, vici! We were looking forward to CES 2013, pretty much like we're always looking forward to trade shows where there's a possibility of seeing new and exciting things from and related to the mobile world. Good or bad as it was, this year's Vegas show is just one of many to come and, probably the biggest problem related to CES is the fact that it is followed shortly by MWC, a show related to mobile and only mobile. We're seeing companies slowly moving away from shows to announce their gadgets, following Apple's lead, but even those companies who are show-centric have probably ...

    "The Snowball, the 6-Inch Mate, & the In-N-Out Experience." That's the summary that led us out of our most recent podcast, and it narrowly missed becoming the title of this here episode, number 26 in our weekly series. This is a very special episode, coming to you straight from the luxurious Pocketnow suites overlooking the blink-tastic Las Vegas strip. For the past few days, we've been covering the happenings from CES 2013, bringing you video after video of devices from manufacturers of all stripes. It hasn't been the most hardware-heavy show in memory, but that doesn't mean we don't ...

    There are plenty of entities looking to upset the balance of power between the major smartphone platform players; whether that's Firefox OS or Tizen, 2013 will see many of them take their first shots in the ring. Ubuntu's also a member of that club, and we just learned that the first Ubuntu download for Galaxy Nexus hardware will be made available next month. At the CES tonight, we had a run-in with just such a handset, letting us take an early look. As you can see in this demo, Ubuntu is all about rethinking the smartphone UI. That means fewer on-screen buttons, and an increased reliance ...

    Just because it's a new year doesn't mean things are changing with the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. We're still shaking up the host roster on occasion, and we're still squeezing more than 90 minutes of discussion out of the mobile-technology news sector, even in the pit of the post-holiday lull. On our first podcast of 2013, Joe Levi joins us to talk Android amid a sea of pre-CES leaks, but not before we dive into a long and detailed discussion about the new mobile version of Ubuntu - a platform we'll learn how to consistently pronounce someday, but not today. We also touch on Sailfish and ...

    Just when you thought the world had enough operating systems to not let newer ones succeed, mainly in cases like Windows Phone, along comes Canonical to announce their new Ubuntu for smartphones. Now just as in the case of Ubuntu, this is no ordinary operating system. It's based on the same Linux platform that Android was built upon, and yes, it's also just as open sourced. This means a lot. Just like you can run Ubuntu on many, if not all Windows certified machines, our biggest guess is that you'll be able to do the same with this mobile version of Ubuntu. A clear example of this is ...
