  • The next owner of BlockBuster will potentially have the future of the company in their hands. The new owner could choose to close all of the movie rental locations, liquidate the assets and move on from the company as a whole. However, they could choose to continue operations within the company, although you have to know that based on the legal troubles that have been seen with the company recently, the chances of them being able to continue with all of their current stores open is very unlikely. They could attempt to compete with streaming video services and keep the brand name, which is highly recognizable.



    The business model that Blockbuster operated under simply is not practical in this day and age - especially when many of the titles that they offer (particularly older ones) are already available for free streaming on the web with a subscription to NetFlix. For physical movies, many are using the mail or RedBox dispensor machines to get their movie fix. It will be interesting to see who takes control of the BlockBuster brand and what they decide to do with it moving forward.


     


    The bidding was opened at $290 million to start by Monarch Alternative Capital LP. This number may seem large, but is actually very small based on how big the brand still is even in this day and age. The company was first put up for sale in February after their financial problems hit the metaphorical wall, and only bids under $296 million qualified.


     


    A number of other companies, including Dish Network have bid on BlockBuster, but their bids have not been made publicly available. A new owner will reportedly be chosen by Monday, and the bankruptcy judge will have to make a final decision on April 7th before the deal can move forward.

  • HTC Incredible S Review
    Posted on April 7, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The unlocked HTC Incredible S is a device that has received a lot of attention over the course of the last few weeks - and for good reason, it is a very solid offering from the company. Although the specs indicate that the upgrade of the device would be minor at best, just play with it for a few seconds and you will see how much faster it operates than it previously did. The screen moved from 3.7 to 4 inches, which is quite a huge growth for just an upgrade of a previous device.


     


    The device looks pretty plain in terms of style, but that doesn’t mean that it does not perform very well. Its 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is more than enough to power through the Android 2.2 operating system very easily. The battery life is great compared to previous versions of the device, and it outperforms most competitors in terms of speed. The company has also said that they expect to have a Gingerbread upgrade for the phone sometime by the end of June, which just gives consumers more reason to take a serious look at the device.



    Its 8 megapixel rear facing camera, combined with a 1.3 front facing camera are also very attractive options for the device. Although it does not come standard with an HDMI port, it does have other neat features such as a really potent LED flash.


     


    The display on the device is beautiful, and is a huge upgrade over the previous version. The image that it delivers are quite vivid, and really stands out amongst other phones. It has 800 x 480 display that looks insanely clean, and the controls are quite smart. The Super AMOLED display of HTC Incredible S unlocked is definitely the highlight of the device, which comes in underweight for the number of features that it offers.

  • Sony Ericcson is pushing very hard to get their new Android devices that will be coming out this year in front of the eyes of the public. A number of other devices have already been announced, including the Arc, U5a Vivaz pro, unlocked Xperia X10 and the Neo looks like another solid addition to that line. The device will be powered by the already highly popular Android 3.3 Gingerbread operating system.


     


    This is the first time that the device has been shown to the public. There was not word on when customers could expect the device to be released, and the advertisement was only seen along side a “coming soon” warning. So far there isn’t even any information about which carrier the device will be available on. Alongside the device in the advertisement, a few specs and facts about the device were made available. First of all, it will utilize their new CMOS sensor, which allows for users to take great video and pictures, even when they are in very low lighting. It will also feature their Reality display on the BRAVIA Engline,a nd will have a built in HDMI port, which has been a hot commodity for smart devices in recent weeks and months.


    The Neo will have a 3.7 inch display, along with a hearty eight megapixel camera that will be able to capture up to 720p video in HD. The standard 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor was used in the device. Although not all of the information about the device is available at this current juncture, the site did make it clear that it will be available in three colors; white, blue, and red. It will be interesting to see how well received the device is moving forward and also what carrier it will be available on straight out of the gate. IT is possible that it could be rebranded and be available on a number of different carriers, but there is no information to support that at this time.

  • Are you a part of the jailbreaking community? Although Apple has tried their best to put an end to jailbreaking devices, a new jailbreak has surfaced for iOS 4.3.1 device such as ipad and iphone4 unlocked that will make that community happy. Up until now, the jailbreak has not been ideal because it would be undone anytime that handset was reset or turned off. This pretty much made it not worth the time of the user, but now it appears that a new jailbreak method may fix this problem.



    The new tool, titled redsn0w, will be able to jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 devices, and they will remain jailbroken even after they have been shut off. Of course, as with any jailbreak or hack, you have to use it at your own risk. This practice is not condoned by Apple, and they will refuse to support you with any issues that come as a result of a jailbreak.


     


    Make sure that you know what you are doing and have read enough information on the subject before attempting the jail break - especially if your phone is not currently under warranty. Make sure that if you attempt to unlock your handset to use with another carrier that you are not using 4.3.1, because there are no jailbreaks for that device that are working at this current time.



    There is already quite a number of articles that are out there and will help you to quickly and conveniently jailbreak your iOS 4.3.1 device like unlocked iphone 4, ipad and ipod. So make sure to read through them before making any serious attempts. It is in your best interest to be more cautious, especially since this jailbreak was just released and the ramifications and issues with it are not currently clear that this time. Also, look for user testimonials for your specific model of device before moving forward so that you can better troubleshoot any issues that you may have.

  • Have you been waiting for the famed “nodo” Windows Phone 7 update that was mostly famous for under delivering on the wants of their customers? The company first started offering the updates not too long ago, but disappointed customers when they announced that the copy and paste feature that they were looking for was not going to be available at the time. In fact, for most phones, they announced that they could expect quite a long wait. Then, there were problems with the actual update itself. Users were unable to actually receive the update, and Windows Phone 7 such as LG C900, Unlocked HTC HD7, etc.. analysts quickly backed off the roll out, saying that they were going to be taking more time to look at the current issues before rolling it out to other phones.



    However, this has not lasted long. There have been a number of hackers that have put together a tool that will allow users to auto-update nearly any Windows Phone 7 device without official support from Microsoft. Keep in mind that there will be no support available on this update, so you should use the tool at your own risk.



    The update hack came when Microsoft released a repair tool several days ago for phones that had been damaged during the previous failed update. It was supposed to fix a few minor errors that had afflicted some phones that had attempted to update. Upon closer inspection, hackers were able to actually deliver the full update to phones via the repair tool with virtually no wait for those that were willing to risk whatever implications may come. It certainly came as a surprise to many, and those that wanted and having been waiting patiently for the update can go ahead and implement it themselves if they are brave enough. So far, not many handsets have any too many problems, but the LG Panther has not been able to successfully update at this time. It will certainly be interesting to see how things turn out moving forward and whether or not Microsoft will try to shut this hack down or just let it run wild.

  • 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 possiblity of the app making tis way to the iPhone 4 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.

  • It looks like Samsung is not completely done with their Galaxy S line of phones. The company recently had a table leaked that shows that they are planning on releasing a phone with a 1.4 GHz processor in European markets. The phone has been one of the few that is considered to be a direct competitor for the unlocked iPhone 4.



    The information came from a comparison sheet that showed off the new version of the device. The new device looks just like last years original, and is going to be sold for somewhere around $846 around Russia.


     


    Shortly after the information was leaked Samsung came forward to confirm the news about the new phone. It appears as if they decided that instead of having rumors and untrue information floating around the net like wildfire, that they would confirm the phone themselves and start promoting it.



    This is very exciting news for users of the Galaxy S line. It is easily their most popular line of smart phones and they have been continually able to find ways to update old devices with new features that keep the users coming - especially when they already have a hit on their hands with the device.


     


    Although the price is quite steep, the additions to the phone show that the company has put some real thought into improving the speed of the device. The Samsung Galaxy S unlocked will be branded as the “2011 Edition” of the device. So far the company has not released any commercial branding for the device. They have yet to announce when they will be releasing the phone in other markets outside of Russia, but with the popularity the phone has already garnered, you have to believe that they are going to look at releasing it elsewhere as well. Russia rarely receives devices first, but this current release of information shows that this case may be an exception to the rule.

  • Twitter Ends Ad Program
    Posted on April 1, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    A recent Google ad program that received a lot of attention has finally been ended by Twitter after a huge back lash took place after the launch of the product. The new ad system, titled Quickbar, but aptly named “#Dickbar” by Twitter users was quickly shut down by Twitter after receiving a lot of negative press and attention. The new bar only inserted ads into the stream of iPad and unlocked iPhone 4 users. Twitter was looking to put the ads up weeks ago, but thanks to internal testing they had been unable to get things launched as quickly as they would have liked.


     


    Some sources have stated that the “dickbar” was a mistake from the very beginning. The idea had been put together by a junior project manager and had not been approved by a leading executive at the company when it went live. Pinning the bar at the top of the app may not have been the best idea for the young junior manager, as the backlash resulted in a lot of bad press for the company.



    This move shows that twitter has not fully decided how they are going to be monetizing their service. Many users are going to be happy with the ad bar being removed from their app on their Apple iphone 4 unlocked. Now one has to question whether or not Twitter knows what they are doing in terms of magnetization. They have always had trouble finding ways to insert ads without insulting their uses, and this is yet another example of a failed magnetization attempt for the company.

  • AT&T New Protection Plans
    Posted on April 1, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Unfortunately for the iPad and unlocked iPhone 4 users, they will not be a part of the new protection plan that AT&T will be offering. The new insurance plan will allow users to protect their mobile device for a total of $9.99 per month. This will cover them against the loss, theft, damage or malfunction of devices that are currently not under warranty. While it might seem to be a little bit steep, these plans will protect a lot of customers who otherwise would have to pay to replace their completely new phone.



    This is the first time that AT&T will release a service like this, and it will cover any wireless customer that does not have an Apple branded product, because they come with their own insurance policies from the company that allow them to receive work only from Apple employees.


     


    The insurance will allow users to quickly replace their device if it is damaged for any reason, and will also allow them to account for electrical failure after the warranty expires on the phone. The deal will probably have a lot of subscribers. In a day and age where your phone is going to be on you all day every day, you really can not skimp on making sure that you have all of the protections in place to ensure that you do not end up without your phone.



    The devices that will be included in the deal include the Samsung Galaxy Tab and new high powered Motorola Atrix 4G unlocked. Users are going to be able to get the new phone for only $50 to $125 -  basically less than the amount that they would pay for the phones if they were to get them with a contract, so this deal could be really beneficial - especially for those of us that lose their phones very easily on a regular basis.

  • New MTS 4G Network
    Posted on April 1, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    MTS has finally launched their 4G network for unlocked cell phone such as BlackBerry Bold 9780, Unlocked Nokia N8, Samsung captivate, etc.. that the company has been talking about for quite some time. The network has been in the works for a number of months and was finally activated for users after months of planning. This is huge news for customers that have been with MTS for quite some time. This will speed up their coverage and will also allow for more advanced plans for the company moving forward.


     


    This should provide download speeds that can reach up to 21 mega bytes per second, which will be nearly twice as fast as their previous speeds. The announcement came from the president of the company, Kevlin Shepherd, who is the usual face seen when the company makes large announcements such as this one.


     


    In his statement, he said that they were able to upgrade their entire coverage area and will give more device options to their customers. It was a huge investment for the company but is certainly one that they are looking to pay off in the long run. It is good to see that they are dedicated to upgrading the coverage offered, and provide higher speeds.



    MTS has continually upgraded their network, which directly benefits the end user.  With this most recent upgrade to 4G, they are officially up to speed with the current demands of a quickly changing industry. The press release from MTS was very detailed, and gave some insight into their future plans. The upgrade of their network will open up a number of new devices that were not previously available with MTS previously. Moving forward, look for their new phones to be announced, as well as a number of phones that will be able to run on the 4G network that was recently launched. There are many different phones that will open up to the company now that they have a 4G network.
