  • As per their prior announcement, which they had released, Sprint has officially begun the process of releasing the HTC EVO 4G unlocked cell phone within this week. This update can be accessed by the users through an Over the Air update. Since an OTA is very susceptible to teething problems, it is a welcome bit of news that the customers will be able to get this update manually through the settings of the device itself where there is the option of the “HTC software update” However, since the users in the world are too impatient about this update, HTC has also decided to come up with another alternative to this issue. This other option will mean that rather than putting some tricked out ROM onto your machine, you can actually get this update This is rather simple as you can actually download the Froyo which is for the EVO 4G just by getting the software and installing it on our phone and the whole process is pretty easy and should not take much time.



    To begin the entire process we just have to place the file in the root of the SD card and then boot it into recovery mode. Following that, simply use the apply update .zip option or the install from .zip option, which ever you are shown and then the installation will happen on your phone and you will be all set to enjoy the Froyo  This is pretty self explanatory and takes absolutely no time to complete. With this update, you will have faster web access, support of Flash 10.1 and apps storage on your SD card and a huge collection of widgets that you can use. However in spite of all the positives, we would suggest that you wait for a few days before going for this update.

  • This although is something which we dearly needed, can get pretty annoying in the near future as the New York subways will soon be getting full cell phone connectivity along with WiFi within their network. Think this is impossible? Well no as the subways have recently signed a new deal with a company named Transit Wireless who have agreed to work with the NYC subway to install cell phone and WiFi receiver in certain tunnels of the subway system. Connections to the stations had already been made such that one could get cell phone connection in the stations but until now there was no connectivity in the sections of the network where the trains would go from underground tunnels. However now this will not be the case as there will not only be cell phones but WiFi connectivity in the tunnels. According to our findings, the costs for this entire project will be around $200 million and the entire network will spread to around 300 stations in total. The network that will be set up will be good to serve for next generation networks.



    The people who have made this network have said that they have designed and built this network such that they can keep it for future use and it means longevity will count for the authority. What one has to gain from this is pretty obvious as there will be complete connectivity for the users even when they are inside the tunnels and hence you need not be worried about losing your signal when traveling underground. This can be pretty helpful when we consider that in case of emergencies, now users can actually make calls if needed. Although this system is all good, there are also some downers here as it means that there may just be a greater risk of having more people engaged in banal conversations in public transport systems.

  • From trekking through ‘difficult’ roads to carrying out GPS navigation that is ideal, the T-mobile Garminfone searches continually for price points that are partially lower. A recent reduction in the prices had left Garmin-Asus Garminfone at a contract price of $130 .This price is even lower than before. If one visits the market for an Unlocked LG EVE Android handset, the Garminfone is the best thing one can have for $100 when bought for 2 years contract.


    There is a trick implemented by the dealers in order to be in an advantageous position as always. In order to get an extra $30 discount on $129.99 cost of the Garminfone, one has to be a T-mobile customer and has to sign a contract of 2 years with magenta. The purchaser also needs to sign the qualifying plan. A mail-in rebate of $50 is also given. Supposedly a person is presently a T-mobile user; there is a good possibility that he might receive a mail regarding this in his inbox. In T-mobile’s smartphone collection, the Garminfone is the hottest selling item. The handset of Garminfone has completely customized for your needs: the Android 1.6 user’s interface. It is recently renovated with the Android OS facility as mentioned above. Now-a-days the   magenta carrier possesses a satisfying number of smartphones with Android user that is efficiently lucrative to the customers. But if one is looking for a smartphone with GPS navigation facility and Android as well as map that are found on the phone itself, the Garminfone is the best choice one can possibly make. The GPS enabled smartphones provide navigation services in several turns and actually relies on wireless connection of data to download maps and other stuffs. On the other hand the Garminfone is a bit different from these smartphones. They do not require any special data connection and one can surf for directions and maps when ever required.

  • Spirit and its manufactures were in the doldrums with falling profits, bleeding subscribers to Apple’s unlocked Iphone4 but it has changed quite a bit since the inclusion of the Sprint HTC EVO 4G. Spirit’s run at the markets and the smartphone industry seemed to be in tatters and their business almost to a dead end but for the latest HTC EVO 4G. Spirit had previously tried to fight its arch enemy, its nemesis Apple through various means, for example the device like the Palm Pre (which by the way was a total failure). Apple and its iPhone and their improved versions seemed just too hot to handle. But this new Android by Spirit has seemingly breathed life to the company. Sprint added 111,000 net customers for the second quarter of 2010.


    The smartphone Sprint HTC EVO 4G has been clearly making waves. It’s been rumoured to become one of the best, if not, the best smartphone of its times. Though it has been selling like hot cakes, yet at times the HTC EVO 4G is difficult to acquire from the stores


    Spirit was reportedly at a loss of $760 million in its first quarter of the year and it had lost around 22800 subscribers. Spirit has now a total of 48.2 million subscribers. Though the company was on the downhill it seems their latest adventure in the form of Sprint HTC EVO 4G did pay off and it managed to keep the losses to a bare minimum.



    It seems good times lie ahead for this company. There had been frequent complaints by customers about their notorious customers service and their imperfectness, but now with the surge in profits the company has seen a dramatic change in its personnel. This year in the last quarter the company was reported to having its best-ever contract churn rate of 1.85%.

  • Pocket Informant HD for the iPad
    Posted on August 4, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    Web Information Solutions, a company based in Cedar Park (Texas) has recently released dual versions of the popular Pocket Informant application – one targeted at the iPhone and another for the iPad. The latest releases come with quite a few novel features, also taking into count the advantages and features that come with the most recent versions of Apple’s iOS - the Pocket Informant HD requires an iPad running iOS 3.2 or higher.



    Pocket Informant is a fully redesigned from-the-ground-up GTD-based tasks and calendaring solution for the iPad. Its purpose is to integrate state-of-the art calendaring with common tasks together into a single streamlined application.


    The version aimed at the Apple iPad - Pocket Informant HD – makes use of the tablet computer’s extra screen space to deliver a more appropriate user experience.


    The tab for “Today” is a page that aggregates everything pertaining to today, both calendar events and tasks. It provides in a list all the probably happenings that may occur in a day and also reminds you about things that need to be done during that day.



    All the plans and schedules are managed by accessing the tab for “Calendar”. You can see the calendar of events according to your wish in four different views that have been provided: as a list, or as days, weeks or months


    Task management is an important part of keeping track of the day, and this tab is where that is controlled. It is a task list arranged according to a degree of priority which can be configured or according to the dates due. If one taps a particular event, the editor is opened for that event.


    The “settings” is the tab which provides us full controlling ability over each and every aspect of Pocket Informant. Each tab has a section called ‘settings’ so that it may be modified to accommodate the user’s preference, along with default settings for the general programs. Particularly interesting is the section for Sync Settings which is where the actual powerfulness of the Pocket Informant lies. The various editions of the software can sync with each other using one of several services, including Google, Toodledo, iCal and Microsoft Outlook.

  • T-Mobile had recently launched three new phones under its banner which were from manufacturers LG. These phones, the Sentio, the dLite and the Unlocked LG (GS170) were all released keeping in mind the demands of the people who want top of the line social networking facilities among all other phones. All the sets covered the various spectra of cell phones and included a clamshell phone the dLite and the GS-170. Along with those features, there are also other great features which include a pretty good widget based UI and other such things. However according to what we heard all is not well with these phones in terms of their sales. T-Mobile USA recently announced that they will be dropping the prices for these phones heavily and want to make people who are not genuinely interested in this phone actually stand up and take notice due to the packages which are being provided for the user.



    GS-170 phone can now amazingly be secured for free provided you do sign up on the contract with the service carrier. Other than those, the dLite and the Sentio can be bought for $50 and $70 respectively. As is with other service providers, you do need to sign on to any contract before you can get these phones at throwaway rates. As we had said earlier, these phones do not have any kind of mass popularity because they is primarily low end and does not come with many of the cutting edge features that we are used to. One of the best additional features present here is the Social Buzz which allows the users to keep in touch with their friends on the popular social networking web pages. Other than this, all the features of these cell phones are more or less stock specifications that you would find on most other mobiles.

  • In the last few months, what we have seen is the media only dishing out some heavy criticism for the new Apple Unlocked  iPhone 4 for its reception problems and how the company has handled the whole fiasco. However unlike the media in America, the European media has not really singled this phone out and in fact they have said that the performance of this phone is more or less on par with other smartphones currently available in the market. A recent report a major Norwegian newspaper recently reported that the mobile phone did not in fact have any kind of flaw in its engineering and therefore was performing okay. They have also said that the phone has been well received by the major carriers Telenor.


    The above mentioned newsletter has based their conclusions on some testing which they have done with some of the most popular smartphones in the market. In an analysis done where they have compared the iPhone 4, Nokia Unlocked  E71, HTC Wildfire and the older iPhone 3GS, they say that they have found the same issues with the reception dropping due to the manner in which the phone is held. Amazingly they have also gone to the extent of reporting that the iPhone 4 does not actually drop calls if the signal is lost in the phone. Along with that, they also analyzed the data and the voice quality on the iPhone 4 and the 3GS and what they found was that both were superior as compared to the HTC and the Nokia counterparts. Although the voice was cut when the signal went down, the calls were not dropped, said the reports.


    To be honest, in the tests that we have done, the iPhone 4 Unlocked handset has not really failed us that much and its performance is not startlingly low as compared to other major phones provided by carriers.

  • Very slowly yet very steadily, Blackberry has been rolling out devices one after the other all through out this year. And as they say that it is never too late, the United States is at long last going to get the promised 9130 Pearl by Blackberry. And guess who gets to claim it first? The most unlikely of options-the Cincinnati Bell. It was almost for certain after seeing the Unlocked Pearl 3G by Blackberry this year that the claim would go to one the big four carriers, but it now seems that the Cincinnati Bell will be the first one to distribute before any of these big four carriers.



    The Pearl 3G will of course set back by ninety nine dollars after the one hundred dollar rebate, which is quite a deal if you are an ardent fan and follower of the Pearl by Blackberry . The devise will obviously hit the other major carriers too. The FCC after all approved with AWS bands the sets Blackberry Unlocked  9100 and the 9105 with the AWS bands which evidently both Cincinnati Bell and the T-Mobile use. That would imply that might as well expect to get some of the T-Mobile user friendly units round about any time now. Some of the more noticeable features of the handset are the GPS system and the Wi-Fi. It also sports a display of 2.44 inch, a screen resolution of around 400x360 and a camera of 3.2 megapixels.


    So in a nut shell it is practically a Unlocked Bold 9700 with a more resolute and compact setting. The announcement of the Pearl was made initially along side with the new Bold version, the Bold 9650 this spring at the Symposium. The likes of Bell, the Telus and the Rogers have all stepped forward and have all been offered shortly afterwards. And even India, which is quite a far cry, will be privy before the United States to the phones. It is not hard to guess why this is all becoming possible. For one, it has a very smart outlook and every carrier will want their share of it.

  • Rumor has it that T-Mobile is all set to launch their new MyTouch 3G as anticipated as an Android phone are rearing up making it count by getting started in the blog world. This new gadget could actually mark the company’s first real and serious move in releasing handsets which the carrier’s 4G networking, which has enough material in it to outdo Sprint’s 4G offerings. There has been a rumored image leak of what the new MyTouch 3G might look like came with a leaked photo and as the rumor exists this might just be the same that is all set to make its launch. Some might differ in their opinions that T-Mobile was getting serious on the Android smartphones with their Samsung Vibrant which is a variant of the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S handsets by T-Mobiles, but when you consider the fact that every other carrier is taking aid of the same family in getting a device, it would be very difficult to actually consider that the offers presented by Magenta was good enough to make its own mark.



    Before the Vibrant actually came along, the only handsets that were anywhere near good were HTC HD2, which despite their Windows Mobile operating system made quite a run and the Slide MyTouch which was powered by Android and seriously none had enough fire in them to compete in the recent market scenario. And if the rumors are true them this new release by T-Mobile, the MyTouch 3G will spearhead Magenta’s initiative in such unlocked handsets. As the leaked pictures might suggest the MyTouch 3G looks quite similar to Slide. The screen on it is arguably larger than that of Slide’s and might just touch the four inch milestone. And there is a fat chance that SLCD display will get a role to play in this phone. Among the other features that count, it has a front camera and a normal QWERTY keypad which is a slide out one. As this new handset is all set to blaze off into the market, its success can only be speculated.

  • We have all become quite aware of the mid air ‘adventures’ and the sudden boisterous and cocky nature of a few flight passengers. In fact, news of flirting and tweaking at the air hostess’ is well known. There had been many a complaints by the air hostess’ that they have been ill treated and misbehaved with by the passengers. Sometimes the hormonal surge of such people doesn’t even fail to venture into irritating their fellow co passengers. As always such cases have been seriously dealt with once the flight hits base. Hefty fine and short terms in prison have been the outcome of such perverted dastardly behaviour on flights, but the case which we are discussing here is completely different and quite shocking.


    While people are testing the new features, they are also pushing the limits of the smartphone to do their dirty work. Joseph Pereira, a fifty five year old veteran flight pilot for the united States Airways. On the morning of 24th June a fifteen year old girl walked onto the deck. He fancied his chance with his smartphone, testing its skills on clicking pictures of the girl in awkward positions. When the mobile was confiscated, the pictures revealed that they were taken at what looks like from under her skirt.


    And yes! You have like everyone else have guessed correctly at what he intended to do with those photos. Well he was to use his smartphones connectivity features to its optimum.


    But here lies the irony! Before this pilot joined the US Airways, he had been coaching a girls High School Softball team. And he doesn’t seem to have any kind of complaints or negative reports in his tenure of thirteen years. Well soaring heights probably makes people aim higher or as in this case aim ‘lower’.
