Phones are expensive. It’s ironic but true. I find it odd that the average computer can be much more affordable than the average smartphone. Shouldn’t this be the other way around? If we were to judge the cost of building a computer in comparison to a smartphone, computers are bigger; they require more powerful technology to work, so in basic but un-researched logic, smartphones shouldn’t be as expensive as they are. The reason why we pay so much money for them is because there are too many third parties involved in the smartphone industry, and because they’re [...]
Watch today’s Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the announcement of an AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 for the next coming days. Then we go through the other official announcement of the Sony Xperia Z for T-Mobile in the US. The HTC One is next as analysts already see the phone as the third best selling smartphone in the United States. We later talk about a new company called Kazam, which was launched by some ex-employees from HTC. We end today’s show talking about Huawei and their confirmation that they plan to acquire Nokia.
All this and more after the [...]
It’s been already a couple of weeks since the launch of both the Sony Xperia Z and Xperia ZL at CES in Las Vegas, and still no US carriers have confirmed their adoption of either. Kind of ironic if you consider the fact that Sony chose the US to launch their new handsets and not MWC in Barcelona as everybody else does.

There’s something for everyone in the Android world today. We’ve got the Sony Xperia Z, the HTC One, and the Samsung Galaxy S 4. These are pretty much the flagships of 2013, though they’ll soon be joined by the next Google Nexus and probably offerings from other OEMs, like Motorola for instance.
About the biggest question an Android user is being faced with is: which one to go for? We’ve received lots of e-mails, comments, tweets and alike from our readers, asking for advice. Even if you decide not [...]
I was 13 years old when I bought my first Sony Walkman. Those were the days weren’t they? It was portable, affordable, and everything that it did, it did so well it never found true competition. I then followed with my first Sony Diskman, my first Sony WEGA Flat TV, my first Genezi Stereo system, and even if my first PDA wasn’t a Sony Clie (remember those?), it was a Clie that a friend owned what inspired me to buy my first Pocket PC.
Sony owned my wallet for at least the first half of my life. They had the design, the quality, the durability, and the reputation. It [...]
