  • It has been finally announced that Nokia Siemens has indeed purchased Motorola’s network equipment division. $1.2 billion is not bad considering the fact that they will now be in quite a good position in North America to steadily grow in the market. The purchase will raise a few eyebrows as it really puts them in a really strong position.


    New York Times ran a story saying that this purchase was not a sudden decision but the conclusion of a long drawn out effort to compete against the likes of Unlocked  Ericsson phone and Huawei of China. They have been repeatedly thwarted in their effort to be able to claim a position such as this and finally they have succeeded by buying the Motorola network equipment division.


    The acquisition might prove to be a very valuable one as it gives Nokia Siemens a stronghold in the market of North America. It had failed on two auctions in the past and this acquisition ends that drought. Although, the two companies who had beaten Nokia Siemens in the past are having to pay more annual revenue than Nokia Siemens has to pay for the Motorola business. Nokia Siemens has really met tough competitors in North America but this move will hopefully be crucial for them. A separate venture might be just the perfect choice for Nokia Siemens after this purchase. The competitive market in North America is really not the place for the way to do business which is conducive to Nokia Siemens. So, a split would be advisable after they have purchased the Motorola division.



    This purchase may catapult them to new heights but they have to be cautious in the way they approach this move. They can have steady influence in the market but it has to be well planned out. Only time will tell how influential would this purchase be.

  • Steve Jobs blamed San Francisco to be too slow in advancement and says it takes up to three years to get a cell tower built in San Francisco. This might shed new light into the enigma of poor reception in San Francisco. The local Government is to be blamed instead of AT & T according to Steve Jobs. The network building problem was brought up by Steve Jobs in the recent ‘Antennagate’ conference.



    AT & T has been making numerous efforts including great investments in order to better the network but it has been futile in places like San Francisco because of lack of support from the Government. The lack of tech press in San Francisco is another reason for this particular problem going unnoticed. Although AT & T may be responsible to a certain extent in not being able to imagine the demand created by Apple Unlocked iphone 4 but according to Steve Jobs, the blame should be shouldered by the Government.


    Jobs expressed his support for AT & T saying that the company has made several moves to better the network by putting up cellular towers but if they are not allowed to do what is required then all the initiative goes to waste. There is no scope for investment if the local Governments are reluctant about all this. This is particularly strange for Jobs as he says that most people in the Government of San Francisco own an Apple iphone.


    Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski may be the ideal man to better this anomalous condition. The ‘shot clock’ method devised by him can be the best way to get the infrastructure ready in little time. This may be the last resort for cell phone carriers like AT & T to be able to improvise and invest on creating as many cell towers as possible in order to better the reception quality in places such as San Francisco.

  • Motorola is ready with softwares for their latest release Unlocked Droid( X). It hasn’t been a week since its launch and Motorola is already prepared to sort out everything with software updates which will be available in the handsets soon. The Android operating system may not be undergoing a major update with this software update but it is sure going to bring about some nice positive changes. The changes will only help Droid X be more efficient. Version 1.13.604.en.US is going to be the update which will make your Android handset far more efficient.


    The improvements that are generally noted are quite a few and are sure to enhance quality. The battery charging indicator is going to be enhanced. This will be followed by faster e-mail processing with ActiveSync and also notable camera functionality improvements. The features and contact details information will also be organized better with this software update. Voice mailing and Bluetooth connection is also going to benefit from this upgrade. The display will be bettered in a number of ways other than the battery charger indicator including the date and time display and GPS symbol. All these will definitely give Droid X a new and improved look.
    The software update is set to reach the handsets soon but it is not specified. It will arrive soon and is going to bring about a whole lot of great changes for your cell phone to function in a much better manner. The software update is surely going to wipe away all doubts and concerns raised initially and credit has to be given to Motorola for acting fast. The problems were rather insignificant but the software update is a positive move which is surely going to benefit Motorola  and also everyone who has a Droid X in their possession. Everyone just has to be patient and wait for the update to arrive.

  • It looks like it is going to be Verizon’s year considering the number of quality products it has lined up for release this year. Motorola Unlocked Droid (2), Blackberry Storm 3, Blackberry Curve 3 and 10.1-inch tablet are all set to be released by the end of this year which means that there is going to be a huge buzz surrounding Verizon this year.


    The rumors have already started with the surfacing of a few Droid 2 images. This comes fresh after rumors were doing the rounds about Droid 2 releasing along with a two blackberry devices. The images have served up the rumors to be pushed to the fact that the Droid 2 is supposed to have 5 MP camera fitted together with a 1 GHz processor. It is also believed that it will have a QWERTY keyboard and Android option. The images have all the more confirmed the fact that the Droid 2 will be launched soon, maybe even as early as August.


    A couple of Blackberry phones are also likely to be launched soon. There is talk of Blackberry Storm 3 and Unlocked Blackberry (Curve 3) being the ones. The Blackberry Storm 3 is supposed to have SurePress and will run on LTE. The Blackberry phones will have other new features which have not been clearly understood. The Blackberry Storm 3 may have OS 6, but details on this matter are not available.



    The 10.1-inch tablet can be more or less confirmed to be a rumor and there is a maximum possibility of a 7.9 or 8-inch tablet. Even that is releasing next year.


    Even if the tablet does not release this year, Verizon may be on the verge of a highly successful year with a series of much-hyped products ready for launch. It is only a matter of time before we know more about these fascinating devices.

  • We recently received great details and photographs of the Apple Game Center which will be accessible both on the iPad and unlocked iPhone4. Although this sort of online game network is not really anything new as the world has already seen Xbox Live but we feel that the Game Center definitely needs a change graphically as the preview that we have got does indeed only show the basic details of the service and indeed is nothing much in comparison to the others which are available in the market.  Not only graphically, but we also thankfully got to check out the changes also in the iOS 4.1 SDK which we do welcome. Let us look closer to the design of the Game Center.


    Graphics on the opening log in screen is much better than what it used to be and the look is far more inviting than before. As was the case before, you can get your account created and sign in from this page directly which will redirect you to the “Me” page which gives you the account details. Here you can change your status and shuffle through your friends lists as well as the games and requests that you have pending. Friend requests can be tracked by a special nickname or the account ID which all of the users are given in the Game Center domain. Good news for parents is that they can actually have some control over what their children will play and with whom they interact with while playing.


    We are pretty pleased with the update for the Game Center and the app indeed looks pretty impressive now and is much better than what it was before in the phone. We will not give the final verdict just yet as the time we had with this device was pretty less but we feel that this could make a serious dent in the existing online gaming market.

  • We recently received some great bits of tantalizing information where we got to check out some new toys for the Blackberry Unlocked Smartphone OS 6 which comprised of the Blackberry OS 6.0.0.100. Although we have laid our eyes on the Blackberry 6 a number of times through various means, this has been probably one of the closer and more definitive looks that we have got for this product. The OS has not yet been completed as far as what we have seen from the reports that we have got. However the Facebook app and the entire app world is on its way. This new version apparently has better HTML capability for the emails that you want to send but we honestly have not got to see anything as such. The new feature which we found out was the virtual color coding of the messages which was pretty interesting.


    Other than this there is also a nice way in which you can keep a check on all the applications which you use most frequently on your cell phone and which take up most of your app memory stock. There is also a rumor that this will come with 512 MB memory and we are hoping that this will allow better memory management in this device. Most notably there is one media application which seems to be new and is called the Web Video Search. This one comes with the OS 6 but we cannot say whether it is a preload from any carrier like Verizon. Irrespective of that, we like what this app provides users with, by giving them an easier way of enjoying YouTube and other similar video web pages.


    We have also caught sight of some keypad demos which are pretty good. The Webkit browser is also something we have got reports of but right now, nothing is confirmed.  However we can gather that the experience of browsing on the OS 6 is a great leap.

  • Verizon Kills the Kin
    Posted on July 28, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    We had got some reports from our sources that the nation’s biggest cell phone carrier will be doing away with the Microsoft Kin and this fear was confirmed as the company has later confirmed that they will indeed be doing this and pretty soon. In a recent statement which was given by the company in this relation said that they will indeed no longer be selling the Kin in both ‘One’ and ‘Two’ variants in their own flagship stores. The customers who are already using this phone will however be not affected with the reversal. The company has announced that all kinds of customer care facilities will be available for this phone. One good thing with this pull back is that the company did not have many customers of this phone as it is.



    Indeed both these phones are really not the top of the line social networking devices and we will really not be missing it that much. The Kin One was a rather oddly shaped machine and the other variant the Kin Two had a slider QWERTY key pad. The phones were okay but nothing really great. The cell phones themselves had a custom edition of the Windows mobile platform. So they seem to be more or less okay mobile phones but what did go wrong than within a few months this device has to be shelved? The major reason was the shortcomings of the Windows phone which does not allow the users to download new applications on the device. We found this to be really one of the major downsides of this phone. What followed was some gross mismanagement on the part of Microsoft and some miscommunication from Verizon meant that they did not enter into an agreement over the data plan and Verizon wanted to take up the smartphone spectrum instead.

  • In spite of all the problems and the controversy associated with it, the Unlocked  iPhone 4 has managed to sell as much as 3 million units already just about under a month from its release. Selling at around one million units per week, this handset is sold out in almost all places. However the problems have been plaguing the company pretty badly. CEO Steve Jobs decided to directly address this issue in a press event where he acknowledged the issue but at the same time doled out certain figures which were aimed at proving that the iPhone 4 was selling marvelously irrespective of the problems that they were facing.


    Apple has said that the iPhone has hit the level of three million customers and they have also gone to the extent of saying that this is the foremost gadget they have ever made. If that was not enough, they have also said that this is the top ranked smartphone in the market. Well, from the reports that we have got, this is pretty different as consumer reports have slowly been pulling their recommendations off and the reports are not very encouraging. Apple had come up with a slew of software upgrades for the iPhone 4 unlocked handset  which they said would help the phones which would lose its reception when one would hold the phone in a certain way. There has also been some research done on the part of some private agencies and what they found was pretty bad for the iPhone. It has been found that one would need to either place tape on their palms or at least get bumper cases for their phones to be able to operate it.


    Judging by the amount of money that one pays for this phone, it is expected that they will get the best performance. For its defense, the phone is pretty well loaded with features and we hope they can turn it around.

  • As time goes our demands from mobile internet is increasing and we want to get the much dreamed about levels of 500 MHz for mobile broadband. However this is still a distant dream as it will take around 10 years to achieve this. However the short term gains that we are getting are pretty good either ways. FCC has set a target to reach the level of 300 MHz within the next three years and is working towards just that. Some time back in the previous month, FCC had expressed their intentions of grabbing the 90 MHz spectrum of the Big Leo and had caused many discussions about what would happen to the 35 MHz band which was there.



    The most exciting thing about this is that all these large bandwidths that we are talking about are exclusively for mobile broadband internet. The news we mentioned above is old, however more recently FCC has shown their interests in working with MSS which is also known as Mobile Satellite  and get the 90 MHz service bands which have the 2 GHz bad and the L-band along with the Big Leo of course. What all this means in a nut shell is that the mobile broadband industry will be expanding at a higher rate now as every small addition assists in acting as a filler for the 500 MHz width that is set aside.


    Other than this, we have also received news that Clearwire has been given an extension for its primary trading zones to be completed in Florida. As per the reports that we have got, Clearwater had been asked to exchange some of the 2.5 GHz licenses in the Boca Raton Areas of West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale in Miami. This was supposed to happen much before but did not due to the high amount of licenses needed in the areas above.

  • The major news in the software market is that Microsoft Bing will soon be incorporated into Android. This is expected to be accomplished within the next six weeks and is indeed a big talking point.


    The software is not a new one and is already found in Apple’s Unlocked iPhone 4. It is particularly useful when it comes to browsing through web, and locating places using the mapping of the software. It has quite a few interesting features. Microsoft Bing is already partially present in Android but the version being talked about here is a much advanced version which has possibilities of image search as well.


    What remains a point of interest is that by joining in with Android, they are making a move to remove their biggest rival in this particular market, Google. Google is well known for its capabilities as a search engine and most people use Google habitually. It is indeed quite impossible to topple Google of this stronghold no matter how useful Microsoft Bing may be. Hence, Microsoft Bing combining with Motorola Milestone Unlocked Android handset  has raised several eyebrows.


    Microsoft Bing, nevertheless, will try and give competition to Google and maybe if they are made into default application in mobile web browsing, they might actually benefit from this. Mobile searching is actually a forum where Bing can actually be a force to reckon with. Google will obviously realize the threat and improve a few things to counter this move by Bing and they have adequate support and ability to keep Bing away.


    In this battle for supremacy, both parties are working on improving themselves in various ways like Microsoft upgrading their search services to include Image recognition facility and there has always been a tendency to move towards addition of social networking. All this builds up for a fascinating rivalry.
