  • Quick Review Of The Motorola Milestone
    Posted on December 20, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    Motorola Milestone is a mobile phone initially launched in Europe in late 2009. It is the first device to feature Google’s new Android 2.0 operating system, although Motorola has previously used the older Android system in its CLIQ and MOTOBLUR mobile products.


    Technology sites are praising Milestone’s ability to make social networking truly mobile. Milestone includes access to Google’s Search, Maps, Mail, and YouTube.


    motorola-milestoneIf you are researching the Motorola Milestone unlocked, you will also find the U.S.-based Motorola DROID. Those reviewing both models note the DROID’s navigation comes with the aforementioned Google features. The Milestone features Motorola’s exclusive MOTONAV navigation, which has 2D and 3D maps and a program that speaks the directions. Milestone plots the routes quickly and combines traffic information with a searchable directory of friends and businesses along the route. The Milestone offers GSM radio standards, the most common digital wireless program for phones. The DROID has the less popular CDMA.


    The exterior of the Milestone has a 3.7-inch WVGA widescreen, handling an impressive 400,000 plus pixels, and a QWERTY keyboard. Some reviewers complain that the icons are too small. The phone provides access to 3G networks and Wi-Fi, giving you the ability to call, text, or email a friend while both of you are on the run. You can even receive software updates and mesh your personal and work calendars with a touch of the screen.


    An optional, and separate purchase would be the multimedia station. This would enable the Milestone’s multi-media features, which would allow the user to watch movies, listen to music and use the phone as an alarm clock.


    With all its enhanced navigation and social features, the Motorola Milestone should leave its competitors, including the iPhone, in the dust. The battery will last at least 8 hours, making the Milestone an excellent traveling companion.

  • The clamshell-shaped and rather sturdy-looking Samsung A137 may be cheap but it delivers. This very functional phone from Samsung is very useful when you always need to send text messages, instant messages and even email to your friends, coworkers, and family members. You can even talk to your friends through its speakerphones –especially useful when driving or when you got your hands full.


    When you wake up in the morning, there is no more need to wait for the weather forecast because your phone is also a barometer. It does this by checking the local weather and will give you the weather forecast for the day in just a few clicks. If you are a baseball or basketball fan, you can check team scores through your Samsung A137 unlocked as well. Now that is something. Apart from that, if you are planning for a night in the town i.e. watching a movie, you can also consult with your Samsung A137 for movie listings provided to you through Samsung’s Media Net.


    samsung-a137The downside is, it looks a bit dull. There is no screen on the outside and no snapper. The screen is a rather low-resolution one so it is not fit for those who are used to having huge screens for their mobile devices.


    You cannot download MMS through this phone so it would be the best choice if you were looking into purchasing phones for your kids. You will no longer have to worry about high bills for video and image messaging.


    It does not have an MP3 player either. No FM radio and there is no USB port. This however is a cheap phone and can function very well when it comes to regular messaging. Whether it is for you or for your kids, it is a reliable and cheap choice.

  • Nokia Improvement Coming For Users
    Posted on December 7, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    According to a new press release at nokia.com, Nokia says user experience improvements are coming in 2010. At the company’s annual Capital Markets Day event, senior executives noted Nokia Cell Phone core competitive advantages in the mobile devices market when outlining plans of success for the company. The goal of the annual event is to share progress and goals with the Nokia’s investors in order to maintain financial strength for the company.


    nokia_logoNokia’s CEO, Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, made statements at the event about Nokia’s plans to bring Symbian to new levels in 2010 by improving user interface experiences. Kallasvuo also said that the Symbain operating system has the flexibility and capability to become the world’s largest platform for mobile service and the company is going to push for global growth in the industry. A demonstration of Symbian user interface improvements was also provided at the event.


    Symbian is currently a popular Smartphone platform, but is facing serious competition from the Apple iPhone. Nokia is hoping to position smartphones down to new price points globally, but the company has recognized that in order to keep up Symbian has to become more appealing to its users. Some visual samples of Nokia’s plan are available at engadget.com.


    Nokia is pulling its focus towards speed and visual appeal in order to stay in the game. Plans are set for larger screens on their mobile phones with multi-touch and single tap controls for the users. The company is also hoping to make all this happen three times faster than the program currently does things.


    Overall, if Nokia says user experience improvements are coming, they have their work cut out for them. Several other companies are steadily working alongside them for a piece of the market share. Hopefully, all this competition will deliver some fantastic results to consumers.

  • RedEye - The Universal Remote
    Posted on December 7, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    ThinkFlood has just released its iPhone universal remote –the RedEye.  Loaded with features and costs $188, it is a good deal. Average universal remotes cost about $150 so RedEye’s tag is not so bad. What makes RedEye different is that it utilizes the touchscreen of iPhones; it also uses iPhone hardware to power itself.


    The device is a must-have especially for iPhone owners. RedEye was used for beta testing some ages ago but now it is available in their website. This new universal remote has a great design. The quality of the hardware is as good as its design and it is durable. However, of course if you keep on doing a wrestling match with anyone in your household because of the remote –it probably will not survive the catastrophe.


    redeyeuniversalremoteWhat does it do?


    Well it connects you to Wi-Fi if you want to surf on your iPhone, and it does not have any problems with controlling the TV, the DVR, or Blu-Ray, no significant latency whatsoever –which is good. RedEye converts your precious unlocked iPhone into a remote. For those fond of their iPods, RedEye can make this into a remote as well.  This only works with IR equipped components of course, everyone would be surprised if you can control your dog through the said remote. It is not like one of those movies but hey, it has potential, to control anything that can respond to IR signals.


    Setting it up however is a little difficult but that is of course expected since it is a universal remote. Well as they say, no pain, no gain.


    Your home automation system can be controlled by your iPhone through RedEye. Its setup can maintain multiple controllers, users, and rooms all at the same time. Apart from that, it also has the capacity to control an unlimited number of gadgets along with unlimited commands. Now that is neat!

  • HTC Tilt2 on Windows Mobile 6.5
    Posted on December 7, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    The new smart phone from AT&T, the HTC Tilt 2 has an advantage over many cellular phones in that it comes with Windows Mobile 6.5 installed on it.


    The obvious advantage to this is that a user will have instant access to programs such as Microsoft's backup service for My Phone and Mobile Windows Marketplace as well as an improved browser in Internet Explorer Mobile. With Windows Mobile 6.5, the users will get improvements like Flash Lite support and they will also have better tools to use for navigating pages. The Opera Mobile browser is also included on the unlocked HTC Tilt2.


    htc-tilt2The address book on the HTC Tilt 2 is limited only by what memory is available for use. Every entry can store several numbers, work as well as home addresses, Instant Messaging screen names, e-mail, birthdays and more. For purposes related to the caller ID a user can pair the contact with their photo, or with a caller group, or even with a customized ring tone. Another great option is that the user can see contacts' status updates immediately, read any messages or e-mails that they have exchanged with that contact and access the call history from the contact page. Searching is also made easier by the Search Phone widget that searched a phone and all of its apps as well, including e-mail, tasks, contacts, calendar, and Microsoft Word documents in its effort to find the results.


    There are other AT&T services, which are supported by the HTC Tilt2, and some of these include the AT&T Navigator system, which can be used with the built-in GPS to obtain voice-guided navigation, and it supports AT&T Music, as well as AT&T Video, so the entertainment package is impressive. There are a number of apps that can be accessed from the AT&T Tab by using the HTC Tilt 2 TouchFlo interface, also.


    For business phone usage, the HTC Tilt 2 smart phone has some great options and apps, and the Windows Mobile 6.5 system makes this a very handy phone to own.

  • Bada To Be Unveiled On December 8th
    Posted on December 6, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    Samsung’s Bada is said to be unveiled in London, England on December the 8th, 2009. For Samsung fans this is very good news but for critics of Samsung’s mobile OS, the unveiling of the software has mixed reactions. Samsung is not good with software; one good example of this is Samsung Behold II –a real mess in every sense of the word.


    samsung-badaHowever, there is nothing that money and manpower cannot fix. Samsung has plenty of that so maybe, Bada will turn out to be a bad-ass software and it might even blow us all away. What all of us have to do now is to play the waiting game. A week of waiting is not that hard to do but let us all hope that Bada is worth the wait.
    According to Samsung officials, the press conference for Bada’s launch will be in London and Samsung’s EVP and current Head of Samsung’s Media Solution Center; Dr. HS Lee will be attending the conference. Tagging along with Lee is Samsung’s Head for Mobile at Twitter, Kevin Thau. Thau’s expected appearance in Samsung’s launch for Bada somehow signals that this new mobile OS will be a bit more social than other mobile operating systems –but hey, what new software doesn’t?


    What does Bada have to offer? Well, that is something that all Samsung fans and critics alike will have to wait it out. The word Bada is Korean for ocean. This name was chosen for the OS because of its limitless potential applications. Samsung’s Bada represents opportunities and challenges available to developers. Apart from that, a wide range of entertainment potential is stored for future consumers –this of course is controversial on its own because many consumers doubt that Samsung can really deliver especially in terms of software. Well, we shall see on the 8th!

  • The new Samsung 'Go' Netbook will be available through AT&T.  This compact netbook's operating system will be the Microsoft 7 Starter Edition, and it will be able to instantly connect to the AT&T 3G network. It has 1 GB of system memory, a 160 GB hard drive, three USB 2.0 ports, and an external VGA port.


    samsung-logo
    The Good


    The 'Go' is very light at only two and a half pounds, and has a LED-backlit glass display that provides great viewing quality, which helps to reduce eye strain. The keyboard is comfortable to type on, with more spacing between the keys than one would expect from a small Netbook. It is also a very attractive Netbook, with rounded corners, midnight blue color, and a pebble-style keyboard. The battery can hold its charge during normal usage for up to four hours. It is powerful and fast enough for full internet functionality and it has a more reasonable price tag than some of its competitors in the market. The retail price of the Samsung 'Go' Netbook is projected to be $199.99 after rebates, and the data plans offered by AT&T for the 'Go' are also projected to be a good value.


    The Bad


    There is nothing particularly new or cutting edge about this new 'Go' Netbook. In fact, it is quite similar to the Samsung 'Go' N310, which was released earlier. Although the battery holds its charge for four hours of normal usage, the Nokia Booklet 3G battery can hold its charge for twice that amount of time.


    The Bottom Line


    For those who are looking for a good reasonably priced Netbook which has access to AT&T's fast 3G network and is coupled with a reasonably priced data plan, the Samsung 3G Netbook is a good choice. Although it does not add many new features from the previous model, it is a good machine, which would be an excellent choice for most people.

  • The BlackBerry Curve 8520 Smartphone is a less expensive version of some of the higher end BlackBerry Smartphones on the market. Priced at approximately $50.00 less than the BlackBerry Curve 8900, the excellent BlackBerry technology is now available to more people; even those on a tight budget.


    If you have never owned a BlackBerry Smartphone, and are thinking about making the switch, then the BlackBerry Curve 8520 makes for a great starter model; it features many of the same qualities of the higher end phones, but does not cost so much that there is no going back in case you decide that it’s not for you. If it is a good match however, you will be familiar with the way a BlackBerry Smartphone works, and in time, you may decide to upgrade to the latest high-end model on the market.


    blackberry-8520The BlackBerry Curve 8520 Unlocked Smartphone is also the first of the line to feature the Trackpad. This new feature replaces the BlackBerry Trackball, which functioned as the on-screen navigator, much like a mouse on a computer. The Trackpad is a small screen that detects motion in order to navigate the screen, which means that physical obstructions on the Trackball will no longer hinder on-screen navigation.


    Additional features of the affordable BlackBerry Curve 8520 include the following:


    • Screen that features over 65,000 colors, at a resolution of 320x240.
    • Two mega pixel camera.
    • Full QWERTY keyboard, that fits well into the palm of the hand, facilitating quick typing and texting.
    • New dedicated media keys, allowing you to skip, pause, or repeat songs; plus special mute button to mute phone calls during listening.
    • Fully compatible with Mac computers
    • Downloadable BlackBerry App World
