  • Sony Ericsson Play Review
    Posted on March 16, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The unlocked Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play is a device that has been ever-present in the media in recent years, and for good reason. At first, it looked as if the device would be the first official PlayStation branded mobile device on the market. Now it is clear that the phone will actually have the XPERIA branding instead, but that hasn’t stopped it from gaining steam as the first official gaming oriented smart device on the market.

    The phone looks sleek, and features a four inch touchscreen device, accompanied by a slide out gamepad that will easily allow you to switch between the touchscreen and game pad while you are playing games. Some have compared the Sony Ericsson Play to the PSP Go, but from our hands on experience, we can say that the Play is much more advanced that the Go.


    The software is easy to use, and runs on the most recent version of the Android system. Although the official version of the device that is out there is not the official version so nothing can be taken as a certain flaw in the design of the device, but some have reported that the device requires at least one reboot per day to maintain its quick surfing ability.

    In order to play games on the version that is currently out there, you have to load an emulator and use a ROM, so that does not really give you a good idea of the quality that you can expect from titles in the XPERIA Play unlocked official marketplace, but from what we have seen the handling on the games is great and is very intuitive and easy to use.


    It is easy to see why the XPERIA Play has become so popular in recent months leading up to the release of the device - with or without the official Playstation branding.

  • AT&T Makes Calling Japan Free
    Posted on March 16, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    With the recent issues that Japan has faced following the fallout of an 8.9 earthquake and the ensuing tsunami afterwards, AT&T has announced that they are going to allow their unlocked cell phone users to make free calls to Japan till the end of the month. Since the disaster, understandably, it has been very hard for people to contact relatives inside of the country. Making outgoing calls within Japan has also been difficult. Some of those from North America that survived the quake have still not been able to make contact with their families.


    The announcement by the company is the first of its kind. Shortly after the announcement by AT&T, both Sprint and Verizon announced that they were going to be extending the same offer to their users as well. They also announced that they were not going to charge users for text message fees to phones that are located within Japan.

    It is good to see that these huge providers are stepping up and making it as easy as possible for people to contact family members a world away. With the issues that Japan has had in recent days with both outgoing and incoming calls, this should ease the minds of those back in the states a little bit who were worried about charges that could pile up when they try to make contact with individuals in the Japan area.

    Text messages might be the best way to try to communicate, at least until things calm down. This will allow them to answer whenever the text goes through and will not require that they answer a call that may or may not go through. The announcements are welcome, and show that to these companies - it is not always all about the bottom line and profit that they could potentially see from a move.

  • White iPhone Incoming
    Posted on March 16, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The White iPhone 4 unlocked is something that has been discussed for a long time. Although traditionally the phone is black, the company has long been rumored to be looking into releasing a white version of the iPhone for those of us that are looking to go a little bit lighter overall.

    During the most recent questioning of Phil Schiller, the senior vice president of worldwide marketing with Apple, he stated that the white iPhone is still coming, and is currently slated for a Sprint release. He also went on to say that in his opinion, the white iPhone is a”a beauty.”


    Of course, previous rumors have stated that the white iPhone was coming over a year ago, and that appeared to fall through. Various rumors have given a plethora of different reasons as to why we have not had one yet. Some blame production issues, others have said that the problem was not with production issues but was just not a priority for the company.

    It is nice to see a high ranking Apple official confirm that the white iPhone is coming. The White iPhone will likely be a hot commodity, but will probably not available until he release of the iPhone 5, instead of the iPhone 4, which many were hoping would be the first version to have a white casing.


    Apple has yet to comment officially on the statements that were made by Phil Schiller, but he seemed very confident with what he was saying. In fact, as he made the statement it almost seemed as if it was old news to him, despite the fact that users have desperately awaited the release of the White iPhone since the idea was first brought up several years ago following the success of the original unlocked iPhone 4.

  • Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc Review
    Posted on March 15, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Sony Ericsson has announced a number of devices that have been highly anticipated since the original announcements. The unlocked Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is one that has received a lot of attention since it was first announced but has not received quite as much attention as the XPERIA Play that was announced just over a year ago. The design of the Arc is very sleek - if you were to describe it in one word. It features an inward curvature that is meant to mimic the shape of the human hand. It is very comfortable to hold for long periods of time. The width of the phone is just 8.7 millimeters.

    The front keys on the phone are physical and are not touch screen, which has produced some problems with phones in the past. This makes it easy to hit them without having to physically look at the phone, which was a problem with the X10 and Vivaz U8a unlocked, which were previously released.


    The phone will not have any kind of video calling functionality, despite the fact that it was included in Google’s Android 2.3, which is the software that the phone is running. Although this is not a huge feature lack, it could keep some users from going with the Arc when there are other devices available that make use of the video calling function that is included in Android 2.3.

    Typing on the touchscreen keyboard is not all that hard. The buttons are large, and the touch screen is quite accurate. In test runs, there were not a lot of mistakes found when typing, but as with any smart phone it can be difficult to always hit the right areas on the phone when texting quickly.


    The price of the unlocked Xperia Arc will depend heavily on the plan that you choose. It is another solid offering from Sony Ericsson who is looking to step up their number of mid-tier smart phone offerings this year and offer more to mid-range budget users.

  • Google usually remains fairly tight lipped regarding the stats of their various applications. However, the Google VP, Marissa Mayer recently announced that the map service provided by the company now has more than 150 million users in total. That number is more than half of the people in the United States, and easily makes Google Maps one of the most used applications across the globe.


    The service has taken users on routes that total more than 12 billion miles per year. The latest build also allows users to use free GPS technology that previously would have required that users pay quite a bit of money for.


    When asked about how she felt about Google Maps for the unlocked iPhone 4 platform, she said that the company was looking for ways to roll new updates out to a broader audience, and said that it was something that they were considering and debating currently. This was a hint that the company has an app in the works that would allow users to use the google Maps app for the iPhone in the same way that they would use their current GPS device.

    Until iOS 5 makes its debut, I would not hold your breath on the possibility of the app making tis way to the iPhone4 unlocked any time soon. Apple has notoriously held Google products back in their app store, mostly because both companies are competing entities, and they appear to be taking their sweet time in reviewing the newest Google updates to their Maps application. With more than 150 million uses, you would think that Apple would be more than willing to roll out the new software, but then again they don’t want to grant anything to Google that they are not forced to. It will be interesting to see if these stats updates change the companies opinion of the Google company.

  • New Mobile Technology Reads Fruit
    Posted on March 11, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Have you ever gone to purchase fruit from the local supermarket in your area, and wondered exactly where the fruit came from? There is a new system, which has been labeled as the “fruit identification system” from your unlocked cell phone which was developed by NEC, a company that might have just what you are looking for. The technology will allow you to be able to identify the origin of the fruit that is plugged into the system. All you have to do to find out where the given fruit is from is to take a picture of it with the camera on the phone.


    NEC is a company that has mostly dabbled in both fingerprints and face recognition technology. Now it appears that they are substantially expanding their horizons to include new objects, including fruit.


    The photos of the fruit will be compared on the back end to the other fruit that has photos stored in the database at NEC. The company has said that that the error rate when they tested 1,800 Andes melons was about one in one million. The number is a bit hard to believe, but is very impressive none the less.

    The company has stated that their technology will let their unlocked iphone 4 users to get a better idea of where their fruit comes from. This is technology that has not been too thoroughly tested, but in the statements that have been released from NEC, it appears that they have a reliable product with a wide enough database to effectively identify many different kinds of fruit, if the Andes melons are any type of indication. The company has said that they do not expect their complete system to be available for at least another year or two, but their early results are quite promising. If the app is successful, expect to see more like it here soon.

  • Twitter iPhone update
    Posted on March 11, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    You might have noticed that the official Twitter app received an update for unlocked iphone 4. The new update will not add any huge features as was seen in previous versions of the app, but it does look as if the quick bar tht was added will be a bit helpful. The “quick bar” was added to give you the currently trending topics based on your location with just the click of the button. Some users reported that shortly after they updated their app that they were having trouble re-opening the app. These problems seemed to be a bit isolated and were not experienced across the entire user base.

    Now the version 3.3.1 is live for the first time. Most of the main upgrades that were included in the update fixed some of the more common crashing issues that have been reported with the app. Also included in the app update were a number of security fixes. These were accompanied by some improved performance updates that should make the app much more usable and phones that do not have the heavy hardware that the top notch phones do.


    The total upgrade is a little bit more than six megabytes in the app store. some of the older versions of the app were also phased out with the update, but those versions were quite early so if you have updated any time recently then you have nothing to worry about.

    Users that had trouble with the update have already taken to the iphone 4 unlocked and other iOS devices and have found some fixes for the update issues. Many users choose to use a third party Twitter application instead of the main one so that might keep some from noticing the same issues.

  • It looks as though Hewlett Packard is quite serious about using WebOS in their PC’s. The company has long been rumored to be condiering adding that functionality to their PC’s, but the announcement was made by the CEO, Leo Apotheker that all HP personal computers will start working with both Web OS as well as Microsoft Windows starting next year. The company said that they were trying to find a reason for developers to have incentive to developer new apps for the platform, which is used on many HP unlocked cell phones and printers.

    Right now, the software sector is digging a 2 percent hole in their finances, which is slowing the company down in their investments. It will be interesting to see if this move convinces more people to create software for webOS now that it will be included on personal computers.

    This does not mean that HP personal computers will not have the ability to use Windows 7. In fact, the software will still come loaded on the machine, but will not be the only option available. Apparently, the company is looking to make their WebOs just as available as the windows installation and allow users to switch from one to the other. It certainly is a bit of an interesting strategy and is not one that we have seen employed by really any companies that are taking part in the Mobile revolution. Look for WebOs to gain some popularity from this move, but who knows if it is really enough to help the company deal with not having any development companies that are interested in developing software for their platform.

  • The Get Jar app store is one that has become increasingly popular in recent months. While the Opera mini application might have been one of the favorites of their unlocked cell phone users, that did not stop the app store from removing the app from their app store. The Opera app has been surprisingly popular with many of their users. However, while GetJar claims that there is no malicious reasoning behind their decision to get rid of the app from their app store, some have speculated if it was not a competition based move.

    Shortly after the removal, the company decided that they were going to respond to these inquiries in a letter to their users. They apologized and said that they did not tak the decision to remove Opera Mini Browser lightly. They had more than 30 million downloads of the app in total over the course of the last few years when they decided to remove it.


    They claimed that they decided that their decision to remove to app was because they needed to continue making money, and the number of downloads that he app was receiving was simply too much for them to handle. It is not often that you hear a tech company admits their shortcomings, but this appeared to be the situation today when GetJar removed Opera Mini from their app store.

    They were very open with their reasoning behind the removal, and you can not really fault them for just doing what is best for their business in the long run. They have been able to be open with their processes and transparent so that users are not able to scream foul play. After all, it is not foul play when you admit the true reasoning behind your decision and it makes perfect sense.

  • Developer Spacetime Studios, the company that is responsible for making the game Pocket Legends, a unique MMO mobile game that is increasing the expectations for other MMO games that attempt to make the jump to mobile devices. As of right now, Android has overtaken Unlocked BlackBerry cell phone such as Bold 9780, Torch 9800 unlocked, etc.  what most people consider the most prestigious smart phone operating platform across the nation.


    The company has beaten the odds. While most developers claim that the Android market and other mobile platforms do not give them enough options to compete with the top companies in the space. After some internal research, Spacetime Studios discovered that they make up to 50 percent more from their Android users when compared to the iOS market.

    The ability for users to more easily purchase Android apps might be behind the spike when compared to iOS in iphone 4 unlocked. iOS does not have the easy to use platform that Google has brought to the table.


    So while some developers are finding that they are unable to compete in the mobile gaming market given the current structure of app marketplaces, that does not mean that there are not other companies that are able to find the niche that they are looking for, especially with Android users which do seem to differ substantially with users from the iOS platform, both in how they use their devices but also in what their general interests are.

    It will be interesting to see if other mobile gaming developers release their figures based on a by system basis. That could potentially shed more light on the industry as a whole. Instead o hearing these isolated negative remarks, it would be nice to know how the industry as a whole feels. It seems to be very dependant on the type of the game as well as the number of titles that the given country has going for it.
