Moshi for iPad
  • Does the iPad Have Flash Browsing?
    Posted on January 28, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    With all the hype of the new Apple iPad there is one major downside.  There is no flash.  That means any site or game that is flash based will not work on the new iPad


    During the press conference on January 27, 2010 someone over at Engadget snapped a photo showing the blue missing plugin icon for a flash object.


    Apple iPad Missing Flash


    Granted this is not very unsurprising since the iPhone has never had flash support, but it is still frustrating.  Hopefully in the future Apple will finally.  Adobe posted a blog the other day saying that you can use it for the iPod, iPhone, and iPad.


    We guess only time will tell

  • Google Nexus One Termination Fees
    Posted on January 22, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    The recent launch of Google's highly anticipated phone offering, the 'Google Nexus One', has seen a fresh approach to the controversial process of payment plan termination. Customers wishing to end their plan prematurely will now be forced to pay the full difference in retail price, in relation to the subsidized price of the phone with Google's partner provider company, T-Mobile.

    In this bold move by Google, they intend to combat the increasingly popular practice of customers opting out of their plans simply to sell their device on eBay. The concept involves customers purchasing an Unlocked Google Nexus One only receiving the subsidized rate if they see out a minimum “120 days” of their plan with the carrier T-Mobile on a two year agreement.


    Although termination fees are nothing new in the lucrative mobile phone industry, in the past it has only been the carrier that has enforced such penalties. In this case, the phone hardware provider Google is seemingly cashing in as well, billing the termination item as the “Equipment Recovery Fee”. As a result, the subscriber is forced to pay termination fees to both manufacturer and service provider.


    For example, if a customer terminates their contract within four months, they will pay T-Mobile $200 and Google $350. This amounts to $550 in total costs for terminating the two year plan.


    General concern rests with Google's involvement in this process as it appears over protective of its device, possibly to the detriment of sales.


    The increase in the termination fees will certainly aid Google in its fight against black market retail of the device, which is forecasted to be a huge problem.
    The strategy certainly has further downsides. Unfortunately, legitimate customers who wish to terminate their plans will be expected to fork out the bill as well. Much discussion in online tech magazines revolves around this issue, as it is condemned to be poor consumer practice.

  • Apple iPhone OS 4.0 Coming Soon
    Posted on January 20, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    By now we all know that Apple has an event planned for January 27th, 2010 and the rumors about what was going to be announced have been running rampant.


    Well now it looks like BoyGeniusReport has received some info from an Apple contact regarding the iPhone 4.0 operating system.


    According to BGR


    • There will be multi-touch gestures OS-wide. (Would make sense for that as the rumored OS for the iTablet is close if not the same as the iPhone)
    • “A few new ways” to run applications in the background — multitasking.
    • Many graphical and UI changes to make navigating through the OS easier and more efficient. We haven’t had this broken down, but we can only hope for improved notifications, a refreshed homescreen, etc.
    • The update will supposedly be available for only the iPhone 3G and 3GS, but will “put them ahead in the smartphone market because it will make them more like full-fledged computers” more than any other phone to date. Everyone is “really excited.”
    • The last piece of information is the most vague, but apparently there will be some brand new syncing ability for the contacts and calendar applications.

    From the sounds of it the 4.0 software will finally give users some things they wanted, but anyone still using the original iPhone 2G will unfortunately not be able to upgrade.


    Until January 27th we guess everyone will just have to sit tight and wait

  • Moshi Accessories and Company Review
    Posted on January 15, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    Are you interested in electronics, and prefer to buy your things from one brand? A great place to start is with Moshi accessories. Moshi has the perfect accessories for your IPhone, or MacBook Pro. Moshi also sells things like voice controlled alarm clocks, and their own pillows.


    The alarm clock is hands free, and you set it by speaking. Some functions require you to touch the screen. You say a command to set the time, alarm, date, and it even has a night light. It is quite small, and would fit perfectly on any night side table. It rarely misunderstands commands, but you should speak clearly anyway. It is a fun little alarm clock, and a great Moshi product.
    The Moshi pillows are generally a gift for children. They come as different cartoon characters. They come in a few different shapes and sizes, and are filled with tiny beads. The beads are what make the pillows soft and squishy. The outside material is made of some sort of spandex, allowing the pillows to be a little bit stretchy. The pillows even come with cleaning instructions.


    The accessories that Moshi sell include Moshi MacBook Pro cases, and protective cell phone cases. They are stylish, and handy. If you are cautious about your computer or laptop getting dirty, or dusty, you could purchase a clear guard for the keyboard, or an iVisor to protect your screen. They also sell laptop shell cases, to place your MacBook into. They are small, compact, and perfect for you to carry your computer around in.


    Other Moshi products include the pockiT, which is designed for small, compact cameras, and the nanopouch mobile, where you can store your IPod nano, or your mobile phone. All of Moshi’s products are stylish and useful. This is because Moshi’s designers make them to fit your lifestyle, design them to look great, and keep the quality of their electronic devices.

  • It is almost time. The discussion that has been running rampant in regard to the arrival of the much anticipated The Google Nexus One by Google will be answered shortly, early 2010 when the product actually becomes available. When this finally happens people will get some answers to a lot of questions and concerns they have expressed over recent months of speculation. Probably as with any event that is so over discussed and speculated about, some will be extremely pleased and thrilled while others will be totally disappointed. Of course as always there will be that group who could care less either way. Some things just never change. However, here are some of the things that people have been discussing and pondering and waiting to see what will happen.


    Many people are wondering if the premiere of the Google Nexus One will also be the first step in Google becoming the next phone company. A lot of folks are speculating this might be the overall plan.


    Still a lot of others are expressing concern that the Nexus One might be limited to only T-Mobile and/or AT&T and if this becomes fact, it will severely hinder the choices available to the consumer to pick from. People are never thrilled at being placed in this position.


    Still others are worrying that Google may be looking for ways to subsidize customers phones or wire services and the fact that this could open a wide variety of issues and problems down the road, perhaps even the possibility of anti-trust action considered by the government. Of course, this is a place no one wants to go.


    Some people also feel and are concerned that Google may be ostracized by the rest of the wireless industry and isolated and left on its own. Finally, there are those who are just excited about progressive thinking companies and their new products. Well at least we will not have to wait much longer for the results.

  • LG GW300 Unlocked Review
    Posted on January 5, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    If you are in the market for a great phone, which can do more, then the LG GW300 might be the phone for you. LG phones are known for their reliability and technology. While originally considered a tool for business, the LG GW300 unlocked has quickly attracted a following for its media features and light weight chassis. In fact, the whole phone weighs less than 4 ounces, making it the perfect phone to carry with you and not be tied down. Despite its small size, the LG GW300 sports a nice 2.4 inch TFT display with unbridled clarity to display all of your pictures and videos with ease.


    The phone also has a full QWERTY keyboard, which makes it easy to send texts and MMS messages in a flash without the need to use "text speech". The unlocked LG GW300 also has a very nice 2 megapixel camera which can take pictures in resolution of up to 1600X1200 pixels, which is larger than what many 23" monitors use as their resolution today. Video recording and playback are also supported, which makes it a great tool to capture moments on the go when you do not have a camcorder with you.


    In addition to the great camera and keyboard, the LG Mobile GW300 also has a huge storage capacity for storing all of those great pictures. With up to 10MBs of internal memory and 4GBs of external memory, you will be able to snap pictures and store music and ringtones for the built-in mp3/mp4 player.

  • Disappointment in Real Time: AT&T
    Posted on January 4, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    This is good news for those who are always disappointed with AT&T’s service; you can now get an app that will convey your disappointment with your AT&T cell phone or service to AT&T. The bigwigs at the telecom giant somehow have learned how to make nice, at least for the time being. Verizon has this app as well so maybe the make-nice-virus is also out this flu season.


    This however is not good news for those who really want to express their disappointment about AT&T’s service because 511 only address coverage gaps, dropped calls and other network problems. Therefore, if you have a problem with your outrageous bill, you cannot complain here, you would have to talk to the people at customer care.



    Mark The Spot is what this app is called and offers long-suffering customers an ability to send a message or to ping their carrier as soon as the problem comes up. No one knows yet how this is useful though so this disappointment app somehow has caused more disappointment than cheer.


    Because for one, why cannot AT&T monitor dropped calls automatically the way Verizon does? Another thing is how wills someone, anyone reports that he or she has no coverage if in fact, there is NO COVERAGE? Well, maybe you report when you get your coverage back, which will be utter, useless. So maybe AT&T is not trying to be nice, maybe they are doing a survey on dropped calls i.e. which of these dropped calls or how many dropped calls made are related to the network’s bad service or coverage. If this is a way to do a survey then it will probably not work.


    It is a rather surprising app though, something much unexpected indeed. No one knows what this app is really for but let us hope it will cover other “disappointments”.
