  • The war between good and evil is a constant battle of wits. Though the law may create devices and technology to prevent and halt criminal activity, criminals will try and find ways to conquer what stands in their way. And this is exactly what’s happening with cell phones today. Cell phones may seem like harmless means of communication, but when fallen into the wrong hands, they become essential tools for the criminal mastermind.

    Cell Phone Cameras


    For a while, camera phones were actually helping to catch criminals. Citizens were taking the law into their own hands, recording robberies and other felonies, as they happened, and turning them into the police. But criminals have smartened up. Now, criminals are using camera phones to assist in robberies! It is a cold, calculated method of stealing. One gang member will photograph potential victims as they walk into the bank and choose the ones withdrawing the largest sums. Another gang member will wait outside until informed of who their target is. Once they know, they will follow that person and eventually rob them. Because of the increasing numbers of robberies of this nature, especially in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, police officials are urging banks to enforce a no cell phone policy.

    Prepaid Cell Phones a.k.a “Burners”


    Yet another useful and highly perilous tool for criminal activity is the prepaid cell phone. It’s cheap, disposable and cannot be traced. Moreover, within the last year, terror suspects in Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia and Texas were arrested with hundreds of prepaid cell phones at one time. The concern is that criminals are making a lot of money, which is going unreported and that money could end up funding terrorist organizations. Because prepaid cell phones facilitate criminal activity, several states as well as many other countries around the world, want to pass laws forcing consumers to provide identification such as a passport when buying prepaid cell phones. Doesn’t sound like such a bad idea, however there is great concern that this would be yet another intrusion on people’s privacy.

    VoIP


    Wiretapping used to be an effective way of tracking criminals but now with the help of VoIP programs such as Skype, police have a much harder time getting through the red tape of wiretapping Skype-to-Skype communications. For one, Skype’s 256-bit Rijndael encryption is twice as thick as the one used for processing credit cards, making it nearly impossible to crack. Criminals in Italy have been using Skype and other VoIP systems for purposes of arms and drug trafficking, prostitution rings and organized crime. Skype will not share its encryption data with authorities, and as of yet, Internet telephony companies are not required to cooperate with police. A serious advantage to the criminal element, the National Security Association is offering hackers a reward if they can break the encryption key.

    Cell Phone Jammers


    Cell phone jammers were created with the purpose of preventing cellular eavesdropping. Now really, who would require such complete assurance of privacy? Not to say that anyone particularly wants someone listening in on their phone conversations, but we all have a pretty good idea who this device is useful to. Phone jammers are actually illegal in the United States, though other countries do allow them under certain circumstances. In countries where jammers are legal, corporations can use them to enhance security. Other countries use them to create a quiet atmosphere, such as in churches or theatres.


    Even though they are illegal, criminals in the U.S. have been able to acquire them through the Internet. Police in Georgetown, Massachusetts, suspect that a robber may have employed the use of a cell phone jammer in order to prevent victims from dialling 911 from their cell phones. The robber was said to have been carrying a suspicious gym bag, which may have contained the jammer, but it exploded before any investigation could be made

  • This year there is a lot of buzz about all the phones that were announced at the Mobile World Congress (MWC).  All the major cell phone manufacturers came announced phones, but none stood out as much as Nokia, Motorola and HTC.


    All three are companies are releasing pretty impressive phones.  Nokia is releasing the N86 which is the update to the N85 and they are releasing the N97 which is the update to the much loved N95.  HTC is releasing the Magic which will be the newer version of the G1 and will run on the Android O/S.  Lastly Motorola is releasing it's A3100 MotoSurf which is a touch screen phone that is a refresh to it's much loved A1200 Ming


    Of all the phones being released none is more talked about then the Nokia N97.  This is being called the iPhone killer.  This phone comes with almost everything you can think of.  It has a 5MP camera, 32GB of internal memory, support for a 16GB microSD card and even does stereo Bluetooth (A2DP).



    Nokia is also releasing the N86 which has a 8MP camera and 8GB of internal memory to store all those photos you take.  It also has support for FM radio and about six hours of talk time.



    HTC is set its second Andriod operating system phone.  The first one called the G1 or Google phone had rave reviews and many people are eagerly waiting the new HTC Magic and what the updates to the operating system have been.  It has most standard features like most current phones but with the added benefit of expanded downloadable applications created by users similar to the Apple App Store.



    Lastly is the Motorola A3100 MotoSurf which is the update to the A1200 Ming.  This phone, like the iPhone and Magic, is a touch screen phone.  Out of all the phones on this list it is the only one that runs on the Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional  operating system.



    Each phone on this list has its own positive points.  Unfortunately until it is released it will be hard to get a true feel for the phone.  Be assured as soon as we at PureMobile get our hands on any and all of these new phones we will be putting up complete reviews.

    Sony Ericsson made a huge debut this year with a new phone.  The phone is called the Idou. Although it is still a little early for a complete review we felt that a quick post about it was in order


    The Sony Ericsson Idou is set to be a really stunning phone.  It is going to have a 12MP camera and a 3.5 inch screen, which will make the display nice and easy to see.


    The other big thing about the Sony Ericsson Idou is that it will be a touch screen phone.  Like many phones currently on, or coming to, the market it is following the trend.  It does look like Sony Ericsson has done a good job with the touch screen though.


    Lastly the Idou will be using the Symbian Foundations operating system, which is similar to what can be found on phones like the Nokia N95.  This is a stable operating system and should help the phone make some serious waves in the market


    As usual as soon as the Sony Ericsson Idou is released Puremobile will have a complete review.  For now like everyone else we just have to wait and see
