Pocketables is a US-based online tech blog that brings news, insights, opinions, and comprehensive reviews on various mobile computing devices, portable technology, and related topics to a global audience. We focus on consumer devices that fit into pockets, and potentially keep some money in those pockets. The gadget experts that comprise our staff produce articles and original features colored with real-life use of products over weeks and months, not first-impression opinions formed within hours or days.
Pocketables was founded by Jenn K. Lee in 2006 and acquired by CrowdGather in 2011. Three of CrowdGather’s other tech properties—Good and EVO, Nothing But Tablets, and StreakSmart—were merged to become part of the site in 2012.
As of April 2018 the site is owned by Paul King who still doesn’t have a fancy company name.

His current obsessions are his Pixel 7 Pro, motorcycle he never gets to ride, wife, children, and using tech in new ways. Read Paul’s posts

I am passionate about technology, cycling and art. This would explain why my bike has more computing power than your average office. Follow me and my work on here, or through the usual social media. Read Mat’s posts
I’m a long-time tech and gadget enthusiast that currently uses Android, Windows 10 Mobile, and iOS devices. I’m always interested in ways to improve my family’s life with new devices and services, though my beautiful wife might just say I’m addicted to playing with gadgets. Read Robert’s posts
Andreas is more interested in aftermarket (and user created) software and hardware than chasing the latest gadgets and tends to stick with his choice of device for a long time as a result of that. After a five year break from writing, he’s back to share this view with the world once again.
