    Adam Doud sure doesn't like the idea of a Windows Phone phablet. Pocketnow's newest editor is, if nothing else, consistent. He's denounced the concept of a Nokia-made smartphone/tablet hybrid more than once, with his latest anti-phablet proclamation coming on the heels of today's unveiling of the new Lumia 1520. Adam's arguments are quite valid. His insistence that modern Windows Phone software can't effectively utilize the added screen real estate of a phablet is understandable, even if the problem isn't confined to Microsoft's OS (we recently took the Android-based HTC One max to task ...

    If you thought that Nokia was just working on one phablet according to the rumors, well the company has proven that it's also capable of keeping things under the radar, even if these things aren't as hot as we'd wish they'd be. Lust as we saw the big and mid-ranged Lumia 625 earlier this year, Nokia has also announced a larger sibling to serve the mid-ranged European and Asian market. This new phablet is being dubbed the Lumia 1320, which yeah, has a name that makes the Lumia 1020 look bad if we were to follow the numerical designators.

    There comes a time when you just gotta do what the readers want. Particularly when their demands are awesome. You tweeted, you pleaded, you emailed, you told us in person at trade shows and during mildly creepy public run-ins: "have Marques Brownlee on the Weekly!" you demanded. And after weeks of dancing around schedules, overseas trips, and major product releases, we've finally managed to make it happen. For the first time in recorded history, MKBHD and Pocketnow have collaborated to bring you two full hours of audio-podcast goodness. That sounds a lot more grandiose than three guys ...

    The latest update to Windows Phone 8 was just announced today, but more importantly, a method for enthusiasts and developers who want to void the warranty on their phone for the privilege to install the update right away (instead of having to wait for their carriers to approve the update) has also become available.  We heard about this program a while back, but now it's finally come to fruition.  Having to wait for carriers to approve and allow the distribution of Windows Phone operating system updates has always been extremely frustrating for users.  Of course, the carriers want the ...
