Moshi for iPad
  •  


    Microsoft has decided to cut the price of its flagship Surface tablet, leading to speculation that the company is worried about low sales or is possibly clearing stock in anticipation of a new line of tablets. The devices will now cost $350 for the 32GB model or $450 for the 64GB version. With a Touch Cover these prices increase by $100 to $450 for the 32GB model and $550 for the 64GB model.


    The Microsoft Surface Tablet with Smart Cover

    This represents a significant undercut on other premium tablets on the market. In fact, the Microsoft Surface retails at $250 less than the 32GB iPad and $80 less than the iPad Mini. They don't just tackle Apple with this price cut though. The Microsoft Surface also undercuts the Nexus 10 by $150 at retail. With the cuts, Microsoft will be competing directly with smaller and lower cost alternatives like the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire.


    While sales numbers regarding the Microsoft Surface remain scarce, it is believed that the tablet isn't performing as strong as Microsoft had hoped or expected. The cut in prices could in response to that or it could also be something else altogether. Some are speculating that Microsoft is preparing to refresh their line of tablets. Just last week at their Worldwide Partner Conference Microsoft teased the idea of launching new versions of their Surface and Surface Pro tablets. It is believed that the surface would be in line to receive an upgraded Haswell Chip. The Surface Pro would possibly be outfitted with a Snapdragon 800 processor.


    Whatever Microsoft decides to do, the damage appears to have been done when it comes to their Surface experiment. The price cut comes across to me as white flag. The interesting part will be to see what Microsoft does next. It isn't enough to make a comparable tablet to the iPad, they need to blow it out of the water. If Microsoft is able to release a tablet that does that, maybe then we'll see someone finally take a chunk out of Apple as of yet impenetrable armour.

  • Apple, the maker of the iPod, iPad, and iPhone, has been found guilty of conspiring with major book publishers to artificially raise e-book prices. A court in New York City passed down this ruling last week saying that the electronics giant worked with six major publishers to raise prices when it broke into the e-book industry in 2010. The victim of this price fixing? Consumers who had to bear the brunt of the cost, and Amazon, who through pressure from publishers, were forced to raise prices from their original $9.99 price point.


    While Apple was found guilty, the court says that Apple worked hand in hand with publishers to bring an end to the $9.99 e-book, specifically targeting Amazon and its customers. This cooperation led to Amazon being forced to raise its prices and leave customers wondering why their e-books were rising in price inexplicably.


    Apple has of course denied that they took part in any wrongdoing, and insist that they in fact brought innovation to the e-book market with the iPad and the iBookstore. To this day the e-book market is still dominated by Amazon, and it's device, the Kindle.


    The plan was to unfold as such. Essentially, Apple struck something called "agency agreements" with the major publishers. Once these agreements were in place, they effectively legitimized the raising the prices. The next step in the plan consisted of the publishers going to Amazon with a take it or leave it agreement. Lost in all of this is the fact Amazon actually sells e-books at a loss, as they are in fact trying to establish the e-book as the premier method of obtaining the written word. Something big book publishers did not like.


    Ultimately Apple chose to go to court, while five of the major publishers settled out of court. Further court hearings are scheduled to decide damages, but appeals are expected to slow down the process dramatically.

  • It may only be a couple of months old, but the HTC One will soon be getting an update or two. Rumours are running rampant that not only will the powerhouse smartphone receive an upgrade before 2014, but that an entirely new and improved HTC One (The HTC One Two?) will be coming in 2014. In addition to these new phones, their may also be a new low cost version of the One coming. This is, of course, not out of the blue for HTC, who released The One X and quickly followed that up with The One X+ in 2012. We'll take a look at all these new models (names not confirmed) right now.


    The original HTC One in all its glory

    The HTC One


    A new version of the massively popular HTC One is very likely on its way. This phone will be a near copy of the HTC One outside of one glaring omission. The new version is said to do away with the solid aluminum body of the One in favour of a cheaper plastic chassis.


     


    The HTC One.5


    The new version of the HTC One, which is said to be coming out later this year, would also be similar to the HTC One, but would feature some improvements on the highly rated phone. One such improvement would be the introduction of the Snapdragon 800 chipset. The HTC One ships with that chips predecessor, the Snapdragon 600. This would of course represent a boost in speed for the device which is already considered amongst the fastest available.


     


    The HTC M8


    Not much is known about this phone outside of its spy-like codename. It is believed that prototype M8s have been used to test a new version of the Android operating system, Android 4.3., and that it will be coming out sometime in 2014.

    News outlets across the United States opened their inboxes this week to find an invitation from AT&T to an event to discuss “what’s next in wireless”. While speculation could range from phone offerings, to internet services, to any other product, you can bet your bottom dollar that AT&T is calling the media together to discuss the future of LTE and the introduction of their new super-high speed network, LTE-Advanced.



    AT&T is keeping very quiet on what exactly they plan to talk about at this event. But like any secret in the twitter-age, the cat is pretty much out of the bag for AT&T at this point. The announcement, if it is the announcement we are expecting, should be met with good feelings as most people would welcome a boost to their mobile browsing speeds. AT&T currently run LTE networks in 300 different cities, lagging behind rival Verizon by almost 200 cities.


    LTE-Advanced should nearly double the speed of traditional LTE upon its launch. This is accomplished by combining cellular radio channels to increase download speeds. This process is called cellular aggregation.


    If AT&T is planning to introduce this beefier LTE network, it will be a direct challenge to Verizon who currently have and maintain the nation’s largest LTE network. Verizon runs high-speed networks using LTE in just about 500 cities but their coverage is considered widely to be about quantity over quality as AT&T’s network is already considered the faster network. The addition of LTE-Advanced would significantly increase that divide between the two mega rivals.


    No matter what AT&T announces, you can expect to get coverage on PureMobile’s insider blog. Check out PureMobile now to see if we can outfit your phone with the latest in accessories for your Apple, Samsung, HTC, Sony, or BlackBerry phone.

  • Huawei Ascend P6 Review
    Posted on July 10, 2013 by keith holland

     


    Huawei is the new kid on the block. While Samsung, Apple, and HTC don’t have to start getting nervous just yet, Huawei’s Ascend P6 is a step in the right competitive direction. Huawei is betting that beauty will tame the beast in the case of the P6 as this device isn’t exactly the beefiest when it comes to performance but sure shines cosmetically.


    The Huawei Ascend P6

    With that being said, the first thing you notice about the Huawei Ascend P6 is the build. The P6 is a very pretty phone. It features a 4.7 inch screen, Gorilla Glass, a brushed-metal back, and a brushed-metal band around the outside. The phone doesn’t feel heavy in your hands, but it sure feels, shall I say, solid. Imagine the feel of an HTC One. Bottom line, this phone does not feel cheap.


    Hardware wise, things are a little less solid. The P6 features a 1.5 GHz K3V2 processor and 2 GB of RAM. While these aren’t the worst specs on the market, they don’t exactly stack up to other top phones on the market. One area that is truly lacking is the minuscule 8 GB of internal storage. While this expandable to 32 GB, 8 GB is a slap in the face to anyone who doesn’t have the wherewithal to upgrade. Another slip up is the fact the P6 does not support LTE, something that is quickly becoming the standard. Trapped inside the phone’s metal case is our popular friend Android 4.2.2. Jelly Bean.


    The P6 features a rear and front facing camera. What is interesting in this case is the punch packed into its front facing shooter. At 5 Megapixels, this is a very high quality front facing camera. The main camera, which registers in at 8 Megapixels, is a reliable but unspectacular shooter which excels best in high light situations.


    Lastly, the P6 features a 2000 mAh battery. Should last awhile right? Wrong. The battery life on this phone is pretty lacking. Getting through a workday shouldn’t be too difficult, but you’ll start getting nervous once you go out for dinner or a drink after work. This is particularly troubling when you consider that this doesn’t even feature LTE, which is a true drain on battery even on the best devices on the market.



    It truly is Beauty and the Beast with this device. If you want a phone that looks and feels good, there are few better in that regard. If you want a phone that performs, I’d stay away. Huawei has a ton of potential to be a player if they get their hardware in order. Consider this a half-hearted warning shot across the bow to the competition.


     


    Pros


    -Great build


    -Solid screen


    -High performance front facing camera


     


    Cons


    -Lackluster hardware


    -No LTE


    -Not the strongest battery


     


    Specs


    Weight : 120 grams


    Size : 132.7x65.5x6.2 mm


    Screen : 4.7 inches


    Os : Android 4.2.2. Jelly Bean


    Camera : 8 Megapixel rear, 5 Megapixel front

    Last week, both HTC and Samsung released less than inspiring quarterly numbers raising the question, has the smartphone market become over-saturated? With smartphone makers releasing new phones regularly, it raises the debate that maybe the bubble is about to burst when it comes to smartphone sales. What is going wrong? What do companies need to do to sustain smartphone growth?


    This of course all starts with the news that HTC and Samsung’s stock fell last week after not meeting sales or market expectations. In the case of Samsung it is particularly interesting. Samsung actually managed a 47% increase in profit and is viewed to be selling a large number of its new Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphones. But still, the market spoke, and stock prices fell. In fact, Samsung’s stock has dropped almost 17% this year. But why? This is because Samsung warned investors that it didn’t think it would be able to grow sales as well they had in the past.


    Now the obvious question. Why can’t companies grow sales? What has happened to the smartphone market? Well, to start, I can’t remember the last time I was wowed. I didn’t adopt the iPhone until the 4S came along, but you can bet I remember the keynotes from Steve Jobs telling me about a phone that would ultimately grow to take over the mobile phone market. Since then, what killer feature or insanely popular piece of tech has captured the audience and truly wowed it? Lots of people enjoyed Sony dunking its phone in a tank of water, but gimmicks aside, we are still waiting for the new iPhone. Since 2007 we have been waiting for the next great smartphone, and six years is a lifetime in the world of tech.


    The Original iPhone from Apple launched in 2007.

    But I don’t need to say anything. Smartphone makers have been giving out subtle signs that they know the road is getting rougher. As mentioned, Samsung told its investors about their fears, but even Apple is concerned. The smartphone giant is reported to have cuts its production of new iPhones from 40 million to 25 million. These companies are obviously paying attention to world statistics, as it is expected by 2014 that the number of cellphones will exceed the number of people on earth. Clearly these companies need to innovate or risk being added to the pile of cast-off phones.

    Mobile phone giants HTC and Samsung ended last week on a rough note, falling short of sales expectations. HTC, in particular, was hit hard by a 83% drop in profits from last year, while Samsung, who still banked a cool $8.3 billion, fell short of their goals for this past quarter.


    Cutting into both companies profits heavily were larger than usual marketing costs as both companies heavily pushed their flapship phones, the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4. Both gadget companies' fortunes now rest on their next wave of phones.


    HTC is putting all their eggs in the HTC One Mini basket. The HTC One Mini is a smaller version of the highly-rated HTC One, and will reportedly feature a smaller screen and somewhat slower processor. For fans of the HTC One, don't worry, this phone still features that solid aluminum body that really makes the phone feel excellent in your hands.



    Likewise, Samsung is pushing their own miniature device. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini follows the pattern of HTC's mini phone, featuring a smaller screen, and poorer performance to go with a less sophisticated camera.



    Both phone companies are betting it all on smaller being better in the next wave of the phone battle. The battle is particularly important for Samsung, who rely on their mobile phone division to bring in up to 70% of their total profits. Samsung is also a world leader in electronic components and other consumer electronics. The company is also looking to up its cash flow to fund five new research centers to boost their Research and Development department. Also, not far down the road is the next phone from electronics giant Apple. Both companies have to have their eyes and ears open to see what the heavyweight smartphone maker has coming down the pipe and how it will effect their bottom line.

  • The training wheels are barely off BlackBerry 10, the operating system and last hope of Research In Motion, and already the vultures are circling again among a wave of bad news and dead air. The company unveiled sad sales numbers following the launch of its Q10 and Z10 phones and has now revealed that a promised BlackBerry 10 update for its Playbook tablet has been shelved, leaving the adopters of the device twisting in the wind.



    The news began with the revelation that BlackBerry shipped only 2.7 million BlackBerry 10 equipped devices. While the company did move 6.8 million total phones, it’s troubling to think that for all the razzle dazzle of the BB10 unveil, that only 40% of their sales revolved around their new devices. With the being said, that has been the moral of the story with BlackBerry over the last couple years. Sure, they keep trying, but for whatever reason the excitement just doesn’t carry over into sales. The buzz is never there for BlackBerry


    In the shadows of those numbers, the news creeped out that BlackBerry had decided to pull the plug on its first and only tablet, the Playbook. BlackBerry called the audible some time after BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins declared that tablets were obsolete. BlackBerry committed a cardinal sin with this announcement. BlackBerry, a company which depends on a niche, betrayed that sliver of the market after blowing its promise to support its now abandoned tablet with its new operating system.


    The fact of the matter is this. BlackBerry is going to fail if it doesn’t find a way to excite both its existing customers and potential new users. Its troubling numbers and broken promises are leading BlackBerry down a path it nearly road-tripped down in the past. The road to ruin is a slippery slope, and you don’t usually get a second chance.
