    Posted on July 12, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Spotify is a popular streaming music service that has continued to grow in popularity throughout Europe over the course of the last few months. Now, the company is planning to launch their service in the United States as early as next week. The company announced at an earlier time that they were looking to expand their service to the United States, but gave no indication of when this change might occur. The company has been gaining popularity in Europe, throughout several different countries over the course of the last few years and has grown into the largest streaming music service abroad. Now, with other large companies including Apple’s unlocked iphone 4, Google, and Amazon launching cloud-based music services, it looks to be the perfect time for Spotify expand to the United States.


    Spotify Launches in US Next Week


    As a start up in Stockholm, Spotify was able to quickly grow their user base by promoting the streaming service to young kids in high schools and kids in college. As of right now, Spotify already has deals linked with three of the four major US record labels, which means that they should be able to release with a solid catalog of music that will keep new user streaming in. This will allow for users to create playlists from their favorite artists, without charge, using a free model that utilizes ad supported content.

It will be interesting to see if Spotify finds the same success in America that they have found overseas countries. The company has not yet revealed their pricing structure for users in the US market, a expected to be comparable to other companies that have released the pricing structure or their streaming cloud-based music services.

  • LightSquared, a company that has had problem with GPS interference for their GPS devices such unlocked Motorola Atrix, Samsung Infuse, etc.. is now creating the rural America initiative. The company promises that their new initiative will be more of a help and it will be a hindrance. You’re going back to take another look at their 4G LTE service, that is already signed up alongside a number of partners. The company is looking to increase the coverage of rural American areas with their GPS devices. The company is known for creating GPS devices that look to limit the amount of pesticides that are accidentally sprayed in crops throughout rural America. Because of recent GPS interference glitches, the company has had a very hard time controlling the spread of pesticides, a promise that the company made many small farm owners.

    Along with the guidelines that the company has proposed, they are looking to assist emergency first responders if the existing communication lines for some reason are not working. LightSquared is not the first company to have to deal with the flaws of moving to a broadband adoption, issues are known to constantly arise in areas that are underserved in terms of coverage. This can be very difficult, especially when these areas are relying on a broadband connection for vital emergency services.

    It is good to see that the company is looking for ways to fix the problems that they have run into over the course of the last few weeks. The GPS interference problems seem to be fixed, and unlocked cell phone users Such as unlocked iphone, HTC Evo, etc.. have not reported in recent issues with their coverage. It is also good to see that the company is taking initiative, and looking for ways that they can have backup plans in place in case further outages arise. This information was released in an official press statement from where.

  • Sony Ericsson Receives Reviews from FCCThe unlocked Sony Ericsson (txt pro) phone that has been the talk of a lot of recent news stories, has been examined by the FCC. The FCC review and examination process is one that is mostly secretive, and not much is revealed about what they look for mobile devices. Many of the manufacturers usually choose to keep the majority of the information regarding the details and features of the device confidential for the screen by the FCC, in an effort to avoid leaks that we’ve seen in the past. The device has already been the subject is a huge Facebook advertising campaign, one that allowed a certain number of users to get their hands on the device early, so long as they would agree to review it on the official Facebook fan page for the Sony Ericsson txt pro.


    Sony Ericsson Receives Reviews from FCC


    As the name suggests, the Sony Ericsson txt pro unlocked was mainly targeted toward those that text on a regular basis. It has a slide out keyboard similar to that of the sidekick, and is laid out in a way that should make texting intuitive and easy to do. This is something that a number of manufacturers have done in recent months. Creating niche-based phones for certain subsets of users, allows them to make cheap phones that still appeal to the users that they are looking to target. The Sony Ericsson txt pro has been fairly efficient this. The phone also has a GSM 850/1900 bands that will make it compatible with both AT&T and T-Mobile. However, the phone could be limited to those carriers and may not see a release on other carriers at any point in the near future. It will be interesting to see Sony Ericsson releases another version of the Sony Ericsson txt pro should this one become popular. It is based toward a subset of younger individuals, most likely high school-age, so we may not know the full ramifications of the release of the device and the new school year.

  • iMessage the Start to a Larger PlanIs the release of the Apple iMessage to start to a larger plan for the company overall? It was one of the most important releases that Apple first announced at the WWDC 2011. IMessage is that service that is looking like it will be one of the most used by IOS and unlocked iPhone 4 users on the whole. Although it is a very basic application, that works very similar to that of the Blackberry messenger, it looks as though this release might be the start of a much larger social initiative on the whole for the company. IMessage is able to do more than just send text messages, your favorite photos and videos, but also works with all of the IOS devices and could be the start of Apple releasing their own instant messaging. Their own instant messaging network would be really great, because then they can outsource it to larger social networks, which allow users to stay connected through the social network utilizing the instant messaging capabilities that have been provided by Apple.


    iMessage the Start to a Larger Plan


    Soon, the company could allow users to download in a message application for their desktop computers that would allow them to connect to users on their mobile devices. This is something that a lot of companies have attempted in the past, but none have really risen to the top of the market in the way that one would expect them to with this technology. Apple seems to have the upper hand in this case with a huge, already geared-in user base. While most mobile devices utilize other instant messaging networks including the AOL Instant Messenger, it looks as though Apple is looking to create its own instant messaging service that would allow the company to further expand upon the ideas that were first launched by research in motion when they release the Blackberry messenger for their Blackberry devices such as Torch 9800, BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 unlocked. It will be interesting to see what kind of plans they have in store for the new system, and whether or not they’re looking to take it further than ever before.

  • Apple iPhone 5 could Be Available for All Carriers in 2011Although at one point the Apple’s unlocked iPhone 4 was only available for AT&T, the device has been continually move forward to be available for various other carriers as well. Already, versions of the iPhone have been available on Verizon and other networks. Now, it looks as though the phone, in the very near future, could be available for many more carriers as well. A number of public statements from both Verizon wireless as well as Apple, has stated that there is no CDMA exclusive contract for the iPhone, and this means that other CDMA companies could potentially pick up the iPhone and use it on their own network. This could change later in the year, as both Sprint and T-Mobile will allow for users to purchase the iPhone five and use it on their network.


    Apple iPhone 5 could Be Available for All Carriers in 2011


    This is something that many Apple fan boys have been waiting for for quite some time. The ability to use the iPhone carriers other than AT&T, a company that did not receive all that raving of reviews for the service that they had provided to iPhone users, it will be interesting to see which networks are able to live up to standards that the users have set so high. The new iPhone4 unlocked, which has been done the Apple iPhone 4S, is a device that has been highly anticipated. While in the beginning will surmise that the device would have very meager updates in comparison to the previous versions of the device, it now appears that it will be receiving some very worthwhile updates. This, plus the fact that there is no CDMA exclusive contract between Verizon and Apple, the could see the phone available for many different carriers in a very short period of time. It will be interesting to see what kind of response the other carriers receive when they are finally allowed to start offering the iPhone on their networks.

  • Experts Say Cell Phones Do Not Cause CancerA number of studies have been released in recent months that state that cell phones can cause cancer, typically brain cancer, and those that use them on a regular basis. The most recent report that stated this was released by the World Health Organization which stated that they believe that cell phones are possibly carcinogenic. This report was quickly followed by another report that was released by The Economist best a completely the opposite. In their report they stated that it was not possible for the radio waves that are released by unlocked cell phones such as Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, Samsung Nexus S to cause cells to me to it, therefore causing cancer. Another group of experts also studied this report, and a claim that they see no connection between the use of cell phones and cancer, primarily brain cancer.


     


    It was only in the last 10 years that mobile phones have become commonplace for most users. This means that these types of organizations have a limited amount of data that they are able to work with, and it might be some time until we can get a better idea of which reports to believe. As of right now, it seems that most reliable experts agree that cell phones do not cause cancer. However, with 25 and 30 years of data, we may have a better idea of exactly what the percentages are of cancer in adults that do and do not use cell phones.


    Experts Say Cell Phones Do Not Cause Cancer


    It will be interesting to see what kind of advancements in this study is seen over the course of the next few years. It is hardly known that cell phones can cause quite a bit of damage according to the World Health Organization, but so far most other large outfits that have studied this have not agreed with the World Health Organization.

  • Skype and Facebook Cross IntegrationSkype and Facebook quickly rallied to fight back at the recent Google attempt to launch a social network, named Google+. The Google+ network quickly added a number of features that were not currently available for Facebook, but were reportedly already in development. One thing that Facebook has to take into account, is there large number of users from unlocked cell phone such as Motorola Atrix, Samsung Galaxy S II, so when they make a sweeping change like adding integration for video chat, they will not be able to roll it out as seamlessly as Google did with the Google+ platform. However quickly after the announcement was made that Google+ was going live for a small number of beta users, it has early become clear that they have some momentum that will has never had before and the social networking space, despite several other attempts to launch a viable social network.


    Skype and Facebook Cross Integration


    Now, Facebook has announced that they will have Skype integration with Facebook, as well as Facebook integration with Skype. This spares both Facebook and Microsoft in a partnership sending them directly against their competitor, Google. It will be interesting to see whether or not the Facebook video chat is as well received as the Google+ video chat has been so far. So far the reviews of the Google+ video chat service have been raving, and most users have seemed to think that their hangouts option is one that puts Google+ network ahead of other social networks that are currently out there. It has been for fear of Facebook that Google will launch a rival social network for quite some time, and it appears that this is their shot. They’re taking it now and are attempting to break what has become the world’s largest machine Facebook social network platform. Along with this they have also announced a plethora of other new updates to Facebook, including group chat, a way that will allow for users to chat with multiple people at once instead of just the one that had been allowed so far.

  • The web-based jailbreak has been something that Apple has been fighting for quite some time. The service, which is called jailbreak.com, is one that allowed users to jailbreak your iPhone 4 directly from the web, without having to do any hardware or software updates their stuff. This is something that Apple is really fought against whom the very beginning, because it allows users to download apps for free which definitely cuts into their profit margins. You would think that they would try and find a way to stop jailbreak in, but after courts ruled the jail breaking a device that you purchased is completely legal, Apple has had to take a backseat in allowing things to happen instead, opting to increase their security for their devices to keep this from happening.


    Web Based Jailbreak Now Jailbreaks iPad 2 and All iOS Devices


    Although the service is not working for quite some time, they have just relaunched and are allowing users to use their service straight in Safari, the web browser for iOS devices, following the on-screen instructions and jailbreak in your phones. Within just a few seconds you will be able to have a completely open device.


    Web Based Jailbreak Now Jailbreaks iPad 2 and All iOS Devices


    This is the first widely available tool that will allow for users to jailbreak your iPAQ to without having to do some heavy-duty coating themselves. Tablet owners will be excited to find that they now have this option available to them as well. The service will also allow for other IOS devices including the Apple TV device, the Apple I., the Apple iPhone 3GS, the GSM unlocked iPhone 4, and other devices that they currently have available. It will be interesting to see if Apple fights back against the jail breaking for the new devices, but they have come up short in the past.

  • According to a number of recent reports, Microsoft is now asking that Samsung pay $15 licensing fee for every Android smart phone that it makes. Yes, you heard that right. They are asking for a $15 licensing fee for every Android phone that Samsung makes. The Redmond based company said that it believed that the software patents that they currently home will cover the technology that is used in Samsung’s Android devices such as unlocked Samsung Galaxy S II. According to the history on the present subject, it looks as though Microsoft will be getting its way.


    It was just last year that HTC was forced to sign an agreement that would allow for them to pay a total of $15 per device based on the patents that Microsoft already owns such as unlocked HTC 7 Surround. It expects that Samsung will return an offering for a total of $10 for each device that it creates, but the upper hand is definitely on Microsoft’s side in this case since the company also had a number of lawsuits recently with Apple, and the fact that Microsoft has teamed up with Facebook to combat the new Google social network, it appears as if every company is fighting each other on a different front. Apple has also attacked Samsung claiming that they copycat devices that they say also infringes on the patents that they have. Since they have been constantly tied up in these battles, this one seems most definitely favor Microsoft over any other organization. It will be interesting to see if they reach some sort of pre-determined amount in court, or if they come to an agreement before that. It is clear that if Microsoft takes the court that they will win, and will probably reach a similar agreement to the agreement that was reached with  HTC just last year. It will be interesting to see if Microsoft also continues to target other companies that are using their patented technology in the future.

  • Best Buy Launches Cloud Music ServiceIt looks like Amazon and Apple will not be the only companies that are launching a new cloud-based music service that will allow users to play, store, and listen to music straight from the cloud.  Best Buy announced today that they would be launching a new service that will be in competition with the other cloud-based music services that have been put into motion by the company’s Apple, Amazon and Google that will allow for users to play their music straight from the cloud.  The company will have their software powered by the play anywhere application, and will allow for users to quickly sign up for the new service.  Then, the users can download the application straight from their Macintosh or PC.  The Apple also be integrated with the unlocked iPhone 4, Android, and Blackberry operating systems, allowing users to use their cloud-based music service while on the go.


    Best Buy Launches Cloud Music Service


    After you have installed the application, the Music Cloud will allow you to stream your favorite songs, or even save them for off-line playback at a later time.  The package will be completely free, which makes the service differ greatly from the other services that are currently available.  The package will allow users to utilize the Best Buy Web player, so you will have to pay a total of four dollars per month for the premium package that the company will be offering.  While this offer may be similar to those that have been launched by Apple, Google, and Amazon, there will be some major differences in the way that the pricing structure works in the functionality of the program.  It is clear that in the future music services will more than likely be based in the crowd, and will allow users to access all of the information that they have purchased and downloaded straight from the cloud.  It is clear that consumers are going to have to make a choice as to which cloud company that offers a music program they’re going to want to work with.
