  • Verizon iPhone on the Horizon
    Posted on January 10, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    A source close to Apple has stated that the blackout on employee vacation requests is indeed related to the Apple launch of their unlocked iPhone 4 product on Verizon, which will reportedly come on February 3rd. The deal has been one that has been long awaited, and has been rumored to be on the near horizon for quite some time. Of course, this has never materialized leading some to believe that it may never happen. Now, with the blackout on the horizon and no explanation being released for it, it appears that Apple is going to keep quiet about the launch until some point at the Consumer Electronics Show. Their announcement should overshadow just about any other announcement at the show and will create a lot of hype. Verizon users have been eagerly awaiting the release of the iPhone, and it finally seems as if it is coming to fruition.



    The Verizon iPhone has no information out there about it currently. Some have speculated that it could have additional features that would make it a more worthwhile purchase, but no information about that has been released so far.


    The blackout only applies to individuals that work in the retail stores and does not apply to employees with seniority. If the iPhone is indeed what is causing this move, it is likely because they are expecting a huge turnout in the days leading up to and following the release. There is no doubt that the iPhone will be abundantly popular on the iPhone 4 unlocked, but Apple certainly seems to think that they will need all hands on deck to deal with the response.


    Now, we have to wait for an official announcement from Apple. With all of this speculation, it will be hard for them to keep it quiet for long, especially with insiders already talking to the media. Expect the announcement to come at some point in the near future.

  • As per one of the leading unlocked cell phone blog site. This week, Cricket gave the world a sneak peak at their new Muve Music application on the new Samsung Suede device. Although the Suede was hardly the talk of the Consumer Electronics Show, it did look pretty smooth as it navigated from one menu to another throughout the hands on. It seemed to power the software quite easily and no lag time was noticeable at all during the hands on event.


    The Muve service allows users to have unlimited everything, pretty much. These unlimited services include unlimited calling, unlimited nation wide text, picture and video messaging, and just about any other service that is standard in an unlimited data package.


    Their new Muve Music service also boasts a huge catalogue of more than one and a half million songs. That number is expected to jump an additional million over the course of the next few months as the company gets more deals into place with publishers. The hands on demo looked very promising for both the Suede and the Muve app. It will certainly draw in some potential customers who would not mind having a cheaper, slick phone. It seemed to be able to handle all of the basic functions and looked very good moving from one menu to another. The Muve also looked good, and at $55 for the complete service, you really can not beat the deal. The Muve is obviously one of the very best apps in its space, but some have argued that the price tag for all of the features is a bit high.


    It is good to see that with the success of their other devices that Unlocked Samsung phone has not taken their focus away from also delivering lower quality phones that are easy to use and provide a good set of features for users that do not want to spend the money on a top quality phone from the company.

  • Sony Ericsson announced today that their highly popular Unlocked Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 phone would no longer be receiving anymore updates to the Android operating system from here on out. This announcement was met by wrath for many XPERIA X10 users who have already made it clear that they have had a problem with the slow upgrading process that has been seen through many of their releases so far.


    You would think with the past criticisms that the team has had to face that they would be more apt to upgrade some of their current releases. Their slow upgrading process has been a problem for many of their users, and the company has shown no willingness to go above and beyond expectations with their current upgrading model. Hopefully they will reconsider their decision and will upgrade the Xperia X10 software past Android 2.1, where it currently sits.


    The company argued in their tweet that the features that were included in the 2.1 update for Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Unlocked were on par, and may even exceed those of a basic 2.2 installation. Of course, anyone who followed the update knows that this is not true in many areas and seems to be a bit of a cop out by the company. This caused outrage among their loyal customers. the problem was not only that they weren't going to be updating the phone in a timely fashion - again, it was mostly that the company seemed to announce that the move wouldn't be made for all of the wrong reasons.


    There is no doubt that the company will have to address the issue again the future, based on the response that they have received thus far. With the slow roll out of updates, Sony seems to have demonstrated that their phones will, in most cases, not be willing to budge on the issue of updates. They can be a bit tricky to handle between models, and they seem to be focusing more on releasing new, updated phones rather than worry about the updating process of older phones.

  • The CEO of Hulu, Jason Kilar made an appearance at a recent Samsung event to announce a new deal that was on the horizon. The announcement came at a press event at the Consumer Electronic Show today. Hulu Plus will be available for Android 2.2 in the coming months and will be available for Android 2.2 devices only.


    After the announcement he also gave a quick preview of the app, running on the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant which runs on Android 2.2 So far there has been no mention of the price of the app, but you can bet that there will be some sort of subscription fee.


    This means that you will be able to access all of the content that is currently available on Hulu straight from your Android device. It will be interesting to see what they say about a possible subscription fee for the service that has been highly popular since it first launched. Bringing Hulu Plus to Android devices means that you will be able to use it from many different devices that are currently running on Android 2.2 or above - one of the most popular mobile operating system currently being offered. This is something that did not leak out at all before the announcement, but will probably be to the enjoyment of most of their users.



    Hulu constantly updates their offerings in their Hulu Plus service and often time’s television shows will allow their content to be available just days after it airs on TV. So if you have a hard time keeping up with your favorite shows, this service is undoubtedly for you. Hulu Plus has received a lot of praise from current users and hopefully the quality of the video will be great for Hulu Plus users.

  • The Samsung Unlocked Phone “SCH-1520” is a handset without a name. To most, that might make it a Little less ape paling, but that certainly doesn’t mean that it doesn’t come with a host of features that most would love to have for the price of the phone. The best part about the phone is obviously the display. Its 4.3 inch touch screen display is among the best out there, with a beautiful AMOLED display that makes every screen look unbelievably crisp and sharp.


    The phone also comes with a 1 GHz processor as well as an 8 megapixel rear facing camera, and a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera. This will enable the phone to partake in the various video chat apps that are available for Android 2.2, the software that the phone will run on. So while you have to feel kind of bad for a phone that is referred to by its model number, or simply as the “Samsung 4G LTE Smartphone” as Verizon referred to it in their press release, you can’t say that they skimped on the features this time around.



    Although the focus of the hand set should be on the excellent Super AMOLED Plus screen that delivers everything in crystal clear clarity, it also has a wonderful design that make it easy to hold, use, and comfortable in the hand. These, combined with the fact that the phone boasts a completely open HDMI out port have made it an unlikely hit at the Consumer Electronics Show this year. It will be interesting to see how the phone continues to gain popularity as more become aware of the great features, despite the fact that it does not yet have a name. The phone is expected to be released during the first two quarters of 2011, so expect it to have some sort of official branding here soon.

  • As of right now, employees of Apple are no longer allowed to use their vacation hours in an attempt to brace for an upcoming event that has not yet been named by Apple. Could this be the famed launch of the Verizon iPhone? Some experts have speculated so, but at this time there is no hard evidence to suggest that this could be the case.


    The freezing of all vacation hours will reportedly start at the end of the month in January, and will apply to all retail employees that do not have seniority with the company. The fact that they are only locking down the retail employees suggests that they are expecting a huge retail release around that time. With the iPad already out, and no other devices announced, there is really nothing else that it could be other than a new unlocked iPhone 4 launch.


    This also means that Apple could be expecting to announce the new launch at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show, where all eyes will be on Apple to see if they make any huge announcements. Although they have given no clue that they are planning on making the Verizon iPhone announcement, it seems to make the most sense for the company, logically.


    A Verizon iPhone launch announcement would pretty much overshadow any other announcements that come at the Consumer Electronics Show. With the freezing of employee vacations coming just a bit into the future, it will be interesting to see what kind of announcement they end up making. A freezing of employee vacations in retail is only something that is done when they know that something time consuming is on the horizon. The Verizon iPhone 4 unlocked launch would effectively be the biggest tech announcement of the year for the most popular device in the world. The announcement has been long awaited and will satisfy many users.

  • LG unlocked cell phone has allowed for several hands on reviews of their new Optimus Black and Optimus 2X devices. Just before the Consumer Electronics Show, it is clear that most companies will be looking to build hype for their devices and one of the most popular trends for this year is to allow hands on review of these devices.


    The Optimus 2X was the star of the hands on review, featuring a NVideo Tegra 2 dual core processor that runs at 1GHz in each of the cores. It is a very powerful mobile device that should be at the forefront of pushing the envelope forward. And offering processors that are the strength that was normally reserved for computers. The graphics on the device looked great, as did the screen. It is able to handle all that is asked of it from Android and moves very smoothly from one screen to another. The HDMI out port looks great when it is connected to displays up to 42 inches in size and no quality is lost on the conversion.


    The Optimus Black also received rave reviews. It’s 1 GHz OMAP3630 processor paled in comparison to the Tegra, but was still plenty powerful to run Android and all that it requires. It is much thinner than the Tegra, and as a result is much more light. It is a well-manufactured and designed device that fits comfortably in the pocket.


    The Optimus Blacks were also running Froyo, which is a highly hyped version of the Android operating system that allows the device to connect to other Android devices and transfer files peer to peer through long range connections. It also has a front facing, 2 megapixel camera that allows you to video chat as has become popular with many other devices.


    Overall, both devices looked great and provided the features that everyone was looking for, exceeding expectations in the case of the 2x.

  • HTC unlocked phones has made another mammoth announcement, just in time for the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show. The HTC EVO 4G will be receiving another model of the phone, and this time on a completely new carrier. The phone will feature a 4.3 inch touch screen display and will be called the Inspire 4G, running on a 4G network provided by AT&T.


    The announcement comes just days before the Consumer Electronics Show. Many companies have opted to make their announcements prior to the show to build anticipation for the booths and event that will take place at the show. Along with the excellent LCD display, the phone will also offer an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 1 GHZ CPU that should enable it to run just about any app available. It will also utilize the Android 2.2 operating system that features HTC’s customized Sense UI, which allows users to use a “Find my Phone” feature that is very similar to the feature that was recently released by Apple for their unlocked iPhone 4.



    HTC continues to impress in the days leading up to the Consumer Electronics Show, and has made a number of huge announcements including the development of their own tablet device.


    It will be interesting to see how much hype this announcement receives, especially considering that the phone has already been released. The upgraded features should draw a few new users over to the phone, but the fact that it will be released on a new carrier with 4G capabilities is undoubtedly the biggest draw of the device.


    The Inspire 4G is a huge upgrade for a device that has already been immensely popular throughout its history. HTC might be the underdog in the saturated mobile market, but they continue to impress with wonderful deals and excellent devices that push the ever expanding envelope for the company.

  • Mac App Store hands-on!
    Posted on January 7, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    As per one of the leading unlocked cell phone blog site, with the success of the mobile app market, it is no surprise that Apple would want to expand a similar structure to their desktop systems as well. The company offered hands on for their new Mac OS X 10.6.6 operating system which is featured in the App Store for Macs.


    When you first open up the store, you will have to accept a new terms and agreements package that does limit your rights a little bit more than the previous offering - but not too much. You enter your Apple ID and password and then you are taken to the marketplace.


    As far as layout goes, it is very much like that of the unlocked iphone 4 App Store. Similarly, there are buttons that allow you to see featured apps, the top apps across all charts, different categories, and then the apps that you have previously purchased as well as the updates that are available for them.



    To make a purchase in the marketplace all you have to do is click the button that has the price of each of the apps. Overall, it has been very easy to use so far and has ran very smooth. This will allow users to install many of their favorite games from their Apple devices right on their desktop computer including popular titles like Angry Birds, and other utilities that would normally be reserved for your mobile device.


    Although you will still have to purchase programs for the Mac outside of the app store, the ease of purchasing new apps for your desktop provided by this new update should be welcomed by most users. It is not currently clear if Apple wills tart to offer more advanced apps and programs for the desktop through their store, but either way this is a very good introduction to a system that is based on the success of their previous app stores.

  • Although the announcement comes a few days after their predicted January 1st 10 million sales mark, it appears that Samsung has been able to do so in the days following the turn of the New Year. They were at a total of 9.3 million sales in the middle of December and estimates stated that they would not be reaching the 10 million mark until later this month, but it appears that the holiday season was good to Samsung, allowing them to put out a total of 10 million Galaxy S devices to their users since the mobile device was first released.



    The sales figure was very impressive, and shows that Samsung is a legit competitor for Apple and the unlocked iPhone 4. It is the only mobile device other than the iPhone to reach that sales mark in the modern day mobile industry. The only other phone to hit the mark was the Samsung Star. The Star was able to hit the mark in a total of six months making it the fastest selling Samsung device ever released, but the Samsung Galaxy S appears as if it may have more longevity than the Star did.


    The Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S is sold on most of the largest mobile providers in the world so it should presumably continue to sell well for quite some time, especially with all of the great press that Samsung will receive for reaching the 10 million sales mark. The popularity of the Samsung S can be attributed to the great processor, excellent marketing and customer service that Samsung has come to be known for in the mobile space. Recent rumors have stated that Samsung could be looking to release a dual core model of the S sometime this year, hopefully that comes to fruition and continues to boost the sales of the device.
