Moshi for iPad
  • The iPad 2 is effectively right on the horizon, but that does not mean that Apple fans are not constantly digging for more information. Now that the iPad 2 launch date is confirmed and all of the features have been announced, fans are looking ahead to the iPhone 5 for new rumors and ideas.


     


    According to a number of anonymous Chinese sources, Apple is looking to move away from the design of their unlocked iPhone 4 and make a change for their next smart phone generation. The phone, which will supposedly be called the iPhone 5, could potentially have an aluminum case with an antenna that features the Apple logo. This would be done because Apple received a lot of heat for the design of the iPhone 4 when it was first released. The way that the hand gripped the phone made it impossible for users to receive great reception while using the device. Apple quickly remedied these problems by providing users with a case that allowed the reception to get to the device.



    The aluminum design would eliminate any of these problems, and would signal a major shift in the direction that Apple is heading with the iPhone 4 unlocked. Of course, none of this information has even been addressed by high ranking members at Apple, so do not take these rumors as fact that this time. You can expect to hear more information about the device sometime in June, just before the company is scheduled to release the device. Apple has made it a habit to not release more information than they have to when it comes to upcoming devices, and releasing the information very close to the actual release of the device to build anticipation and either confirm or deny the rumors that are out there prior to the release of the information.

  • Research In Motion will be releasing a large number of different smart devices this year. Although the company has been known for their business phones such as Bold 9780, Torch 9800 unlocked, etc.. that usually come complete with a full QWERTY keyboard, the company has been looking farther into touch screen technology over the course of the last few months, and a recent patent issued by the company shows that they have gone as far as create their own touch screen technology.


     


    The BlackBerry 7 was recently announced, and with the upcoming PlayBook tablet just on the horizon, many have wondered what the company is working on now. It appears that they are going to be looking to release touch screen devices.


     


    The patent, which was appropriately named “Touch Sensitive Display with Capacitive and Resistive Touch Sensors and Method Control,” is described as a display that will detect the users touch with a resistive touch sensor as well as a touch sensitive display. The patent shows that the technology examines text areas, the force of the touch, and does its best to determine what the intended action of the user was based on a number of different characteristics.


    The display will then perform a function that is based on the characteristics that were outlined earlier.  It certainly is an interesting take on the touchscreen technology and appears to be a bit different from the technology that Apple’s unlocked iphone 4 and other companies are currently using.


     


    The idea sounds neat, but we will have to see it in action before we hand out any official judgment. If anything, the patent shows that Research In Motion is taking the creation of new touchscreen devices very seriously and is embracing a change in the core of their business. Of course, we probably won’t hear anything official about this for quite some time so it is probably best that you just focus on their confirmed upcoming releases instead of dwelling on potential touchscreen devices for now.

  • iPad 2 Review
    Posted on March 9, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The iPad 2 is already one of the most popular products of 2011, and it hasn’t even been released yet. The new device will feature a 1 GHz dual core A5 chip and cameras that were not included on the original version of the iPad 2. The CPU, all in all, will be up to two times as fast as the hardware from the original and Apple has claimed that the graphics performance will beup to nine times better than it was on the original iPad and iphone 4 unlocked, giving users access to play more advanced games on their tablet device.



    Power requirements for the device have also remained the same. Your battery life will be just as long as it previously, which is good news because the battery life of the original iPad was one of the best selling points.


     


    The device will start at $499 for 16 GB Wi-Fi only, and will go all the way up to $829 for the WiFi that comes complete with 3G connections and 64 GB of storage. One of the biggest features of the new iPad is the inclusion of an HDMI output that is capable of delivering images up to 1080p, which is a feature that many users were hoping would be included in the second version of the popular tablet device.


     


    The new iOS 4.3 will be better suited for use on tablet devices, and many new apps will be made available during the launch including the heavily promoted iMovie and GarageBand, which should give users audio and video editing controls that have never before been available on the iPad, unlocked iphone 4 and other tablet devices.


     


    The iPad 2 is highly anticipated, and so far it looks as though the iPad 2 will be living up to the hype based on what has been shown so far. Look for Apple to have another trick or two up their sleeves for the official launch, as they usually do.

  • N64 Emulator Arrives on Android
    Posted on March 8, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Emulators technically exist in a grey area, legally, but they have been present on Android for quite some time. There are many different emulators that are currently available on the Android such Unlocked Samsung Captivate i897, HTC Desire, etc. , starting with the original Nintendo and going all the way up through the original Playstation. Absent from the Android market was an emulator that most had been waiting anxiously for - a Nintendo 64 emulator. That has finally been addressed by the same person who was behind the creation of previous emulators, going by the name yongzh.


     


    The emulator will require that you have a fairly powerful device in order to run the app, but so far it looks as if everything works as you might expect. Technically, you are supposed to own the N64 cartridge when downloading the ROMs, but of course this is an issue that is overlooked.



    The touchscreen only handsets will allow you to control all of the game exclusively from the touchscreen. It might be a little hard for you to control them as well as you could with a controller, but nonetheless this should open up a lot of different games for use on your Android devices. It is a bit surprising that an N64 emulator has not made its way to Android devices previous to this.


     


    Right now, the emulator will only cost around $6, which seems to be a fair price. You might want to look around and see what games you can find prior to downloading the emulator. Also keep in mind that these emulators exist within a legal grey area. Eventually, this issue could be addressed, especially because the emulators are not being made available for free, and instead rquire that you pay for them. Bring back memories when the N64 ruled the land of games.

  • Sony Ericsson has not been shy about their expansion into Android powered devices. In fact, some of their most anticipated phones, including the Xperia Play and the Arc will run on the Android Platform. High ranking officials within the company have stated that it is their goal to become the number one handset provider specifically for the Android platform, but that does not mean that they are not looking to invest in other operating systems as well.


    It now looks as though they are planning on release a device for Windows Phone 7 such has LG C900, HTC HD7 unlocked, etc. The device, which had pictures of it leak, shows a slide out QWERTY keyboard, along with a touch screen phone that is running on the Windows Phone 7 operating system.


     


    Windows Phone 7 is known for requiring quite a bit in terms of hardware, and the device which is only known as “Julie” right now reportedly features a 1 GHz processor that should be more than capable of running the Windows Phone 7 Operating System.


    So, while Sony Ericsson has openly admitted that they are focusing on the expansion of their Android devices that does not necessarily mean that they are going to be neglecting other operating systems as well. As Windows Phone 7 continues to climb in popularity, look for more b ig handset manufacturing companies to release devices for the OS.  Although Android might be the trendy choice at this point. Windows Phone 7 provides a very usable alternative that is well made, easy to use and is a huge upgrade for users of previous Windows phones.


     


    It will be interesting to see if they continue to expand farther into the Windows Phone 7 arena, or if they continue to focus on expanding into Android. Either way, Microsoft has to be happy with the progress of their operating system which has slowly become one of the more popular options available for handset manufacturers.

  • Apple COO Talks Cheap iPhone
    Posted on March 6, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The rumors about a cheaper unlocked iPhone 4 have been around for a long time. They first started a few weeks ago when reports stated that an iPhone-mini version was being worked on. these rumors were quickly shot down and now it appears that instead of a smaller version of the iPhone, Apple might just be looking into creating a version of the iPhone that features lower quality hardware and is able to be sold for a cheaper price.



    The Apple COO, Tim Cook stated in a recent press event that Apple does not want their products to only be for “the rich,” and confirmed that they are looking to release cheaper versions of their products in order to make them appeal to a larger selection of people. Of course, the rumors of a cheaper version of the iPhone have been all over the net in recent months, but Apple has not really addressed them as directly as they did today.


     


    Apple is also looking into expanding into the prepaid market. The moves that Apple was looking to make in the prepaid market was described as “clever,” although Tim Cook did not go any farther with his explanations then that. He also confirmed that Apple was going to be aggressively pursuing the tablet market moving forward, as the demand for those devices has risen substantially over the course of the last few weeks.


     


    some have said that they believe that tablets could one day end up being as much as a $100 billion business for Apple, followed by other companies who are releasing devices in the space. With technology moving so quickly, who knows what kind of features could be included with tablets in the future. Watch for more rumors of a cheaper iPhone 4 unlocked and other prepaid plans being released at some point in the near future.

  • The system for iOS notifications has never been heralded by the media. Apple’s unlocked iphone 4 maintains that the system is the way it is for a reason, and they do not want their users bombarded with notifications from applications that they have downloaded and not knowing how to turn the notifications off.



    However, a new app from Peter Hajas called MobileNotifier proves that not every notification has to be as intrusive as people have believed. The new application will provide users with an easily accessible notification tray, which will allow users to take a look at the notifications that have been send their way throughout the day. The idea behind the app is that it provides non intrusive notifications for applications that you want to receive notifications for, but do not want to be  interupted or have the phone make a noise when the notifications are delivered.


     


    Hopefully Apple is working on a similar solution for iOS 5, but for now Mobile Notifier is definitely the best available option for individuals that are looking for non-intrusive notifications. Apple has not publicly addressed the idea of non-intrusive notifications or including the technology in future updates, but that certainly would be something that a majority of their users would be interested in.



    In order to install Mobile Notifier, you will first have to jailbreak your phone because the application is not currently available in the Apple store. The reviews for the app have been raving so far, so there is a chance that in the future it could be included in the iphone 4 unlocked apps store, but not if apple is ever planning on implementing the technology themselves. Apple has been known to shun applications that capitalize on technology that they themselves are looking into expanding toward. It will be interesting to see how Apple responds to these claims if the app gains a lot of popularity.

  • In this new cell phone age, smart device theft is something that has become all too common, and has really become quite a problem. Several apps have been released that attempt to solve the problem, but now the carriers themselves are getting in on it. Sprint has announced their total Equipment Protection Application, which shares a name with a very similar application in which it shares many features.



    With the new application, you will be able to track the whereabouts of your phone with a web interface, making it easy to see who has your phone and where they are headed, regardless of whether or not the phone is turned on. The Apple’s unlocked iphone 4 will allow you to sound an alarm even if the phone is muted. You can also lock the phone and wipe all of your contacts (which can then be restored if you are able to get your device back.) So far, the application is only compatible with Android and BlackBerry devices, and is completely free with Sprint’s Total Equipment Protection Program. Right now the program costs only $7 per month. That amount might seem like quite a bit, but for the knowledge of knowing that your device is always going to be able to be tracked and your data will always be safe, you really could not ask for more.



    Other features that have been rumored for similar applications are the ability to delete text messages and calling data as well, so that the thieves could not go through your text messages and retrieve information through them. Look for apps like this one to continue to grow in popularity and expand to other platforms in the future. Soon the days will be gone when people can steal your mobile device and activate it under their own plans. Applications like this one could effectively wipe out the underground black market of stolen cell phones that has run so rampant in recent years.

  • 150,000 Gmail Accounts Gone
    Posted on March 3, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    As per one of the leading unlocked cell phone blog site, More than 150,000 Gmail accounts disappeared as a result of a bug. All of the information contained in the accounts was also deleted. Imagine losing years of conversations and contacts. The initial estimate was 0.29% of all Gmail accounts, but that estimate was revised and said to be sitting more around 0.08% by the end of the day. According to a number of different reports, the correspondence within these accounts was also deleted throughout the past weekend. Users were unable to log in to their accounts. Once the accounts had been restored, the information within the accounts was mysteriously missing.


    Essentially, the accounts were completely reset and all that was left was the user-name and login for the accounts. Google has maintained that they believe they will be able to restore all of the data that was lost. until that time, users will not be able to access their GMail accounts because of the issue.


    Google quickly released a statement ensuring users that they were hard at work on the issue and stated that they would be working hard to restore full data access for the affected accounts. This is the first time that users have seen a mass deleting of their accounts and it is not clear what might have caused the issue. All Google has said so far was that it was some kind of bug, which seems to be in line with other reports that were released shortly following the deletion of the accounts.


    Users have been asked to not contact support and instead to stay updated with the progress through press releases that google issues. All of the deleted accounts are on the same page and none will be restored publicly before others. Although it is a very large hiccup on Google’s part, it sounds as if everything will be restored.

  • Samsung Google Nexus S Review
    Posted on March 3, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The Unlocked Samsung Google Nexus S is a phone that has surprising slipped under the radar in recent months despite the fact that it has been connected to two of the biggest names in the mobile industry. All around the Samsung Google Nexus S is a great offering, both in terms of hardware as well as in usability and in design.



    It features a 1 GHZ Hummingbird CPU and 512 MB of RAM - More than enough to run Gingerbread, the 2.3 version of Android that the device utilizes. It’s four inch screen has a 800 x 480 Super AMOLED display that delivers top notch visuals and also has a five megapixel camera on the back, rear facing side of the phone as well as a VGA front facing camera that will allow you to video chat.


     


    The design is sleek. The phone looks great, is light weight and can easily be stored in the pocket. The sound quality of the Samsung Google Nexus S is much better than previous devices in the S line, and the sounds on the other end are crystal clear and easy to hear.


     


    The camera looks great, feels great and is leaps and bounds above other similar devices. The Gingerbread software is part of the reason why the phone has been so well reviewed, and the features provided through the software update are top of the line.



    It is a mystery as to why the Samsung Google Nexus S Unlocked has not received more attention since it was first confirmed and announced. Perhaps users have been turned off by the problems that the Nexus One faced when it was first released - but that certainly should not stop you if you are looking for an excellent phone that comes with Gingerbread and has the hardware to back up even the most taxing of applications.
