Reviews

Pocketables is reviewing a different aspect of Windows 8 each week until the operating system’s public launch this week on October 26. Most recently, we dug into Windows 8′s setup process and PC Settings – take a look and see what we think. Google also finally released its official Calendar app into the Play Store, but how does it compare to HTC’s own version? Be sure to check out our quick review to find out!

Good and EVO

Confused about all the drama between Sprint, Softbank, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, and AT&T? You’re not alone, but we’ve got a nice summary to help you out. We also took a closer look at two new kernels for the EVO 3D: MAC Kernel 2.0.0 and Buttered Toast. And in case you’ve got a new HTC EVO 4G LTE but have been unable to gain S-OFF, have no fear – there’s a solution out there, as long as you’re brave enough.
