  • Finally a Standard
    Posted on June 30, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    So after all is said and done and many many years of people complaining it looks like the manufacturers are finally going to standardize on a charging port.  That means no more things like the Apple wall charger or the Sony Ericsson fastport.


    This is all coming from an article at Arstechnica.com


    ...The European Commission announced today that 10 mobile phone producers, which represent some 90 percent of the mobile phone market in the European Union, have signed a voluntary agreement to use standardized chargers for mobile phones using a micro-USB connector. The agreement addresses the EC's concern that mobile phone chargers create needless electronic waste...


    This is great news it means that in the future, since no start date was anounnced, all cell phones will use a microUSB port for charging.  No longer will you have to search for one basically any charger will work with any phone.  As it was said in the article not only will it help standardize on it this will also greatly reduce waste since each phone you get will not need a new charger.  The downside this will likely mean that wall chargers and car chargers will have to be bought seperately or when you buy a new phone you'll still have too many chargers that they will end up in the garbage.


    Right now there are only 10 manufacturer's who have agreed to the standard


    ...So far, the 10 companies that have signed the "Memorandum of Understanding" submitted to the EC includes Apple, LG, Motorola, NEC, Nokia, Qualcomm, Research in Motion, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, and Texas Instruments. The commission estimates that these 10 companies represent approximately 90 percent of the mobile phone market in Europe...


    So maybe not everyone's onboard yet but 90% are so there is no real worries.  Hopefully it doesn't take to long for this to come to market.

  • That's right folks according to IntoMobile.com Nokia is set to release a new cell phone sometime in September.  If the rumors are right this will be the Nokia 3720 and it will be a waterproof phone that is also dustproof.


    Being waterproof and dustproof the Nokia 3720 will let you worry less about common problems that plague cell phones.  Many people spill a little water on them.  Another feature is the Nokia 3720 is also shockproof.  This means that it can be dropped and the phone will still work.  Granted we're not saying take it to the top of a 5 story building but you won't have to worry anymore if it falls of the table or slips out your pocket


    So for now this is simply a rumor and we will have to all wait to an official announcement with specs but at least it looks promising.

  • iPhone Accessories
    Posted on June 11, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    So a little more follow up on yesterday's post.  With everyone complaining about the Apple iPhone 3Gs not being a real big change from, but what people aren't realizing is how this is actually a good thing.  A lot of people complained when Apple changed the iPhone to the Apple iPhone 3G and changed size and where some of the buttons were, which meant any accessories people invested in while they had the original were no longer able to fit the new one.  This meant everyone had to buy new accessories.


    That means all those Apple iPhone 3G iSkin Accessories will still work with the new iPhone 3Gs.  So all those Solo and Solo FX skins will still work and so will the Revo2 skins and the Duet belt clip


    So as much as people complain there are some good things and we, at PureMobile, aren't just talking about the new features about the Apple iPhone 3Gs we are talking about not having to buy all new accessories.

  • New iPhone Coming Soon
    Posted on June 8, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    So day one of the WWDC has now ended and as expected there is a new iPhone coming to the world.  Apple has announced the Apple iPhone 3Gs.  The overall look remains the same but there are some big changes.  First the iPhone 3Gs will come in two flavors.  It will come in a 16GB version and a 32GB version.


    The Apple iPhone 3Gs will also be getting two camera upgrades.  The first will be to a 3MP camera.  The second is the iPhone 3Gs will now have video capabilities.  It also now has a built in compass, "fingerprint resistant" screen and a longer battery life with up to 9hrs of talk time.


    AT&T has released a press release annoucing that it would be available on June 19th.  So now it's just a matter of time.  As of the press release there has been no new announcements of reduced pricing plans but for now having a less expensive iPhone available to the market will open up more people finally being able to make that long awaited switch

  • Seinfeld Rips On Blackberry
    Posted on June 2, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    So we came across this interview that Jerry Seinfeld did on Late Night with Conan O'Brian.  Jerry just makes fun of Blackberry users.  You've got to watch the video below to see what we mean.  Also stick it out to the end because he doesn't like iPhone people either.


    We all know Jerry isn't being serious but this is a must watch for anyone who uses or even doesn't use a Blackberry or iPhone

  • As technology becomes more sophisticated, so do methods of flirtation. Flirting helps us to feel someone out, and in its most primal sense- determine whether that person is an ideal sexual partner. Deeply engrained in the human psyche, people flirt to signal amorous interest and sexual availability. And, given today’s advanced channels of communication, email, IM, SMS, hormone-driven teenagers and young adults alike are not only disclosing their intimate desires through text messages but also virtually exposing themselves through sexts (sexually explicit messages or photos sent electronically, primarily between cell phones).



    Why Call When You Can Flirtext?


    With over 500 billion SMS messages sent a year, flirtexting is a very popular way for young people to flirt. Self-proclaimed textperts Olivia Baniuszewicz and Debra Goldstein and authors of the book Flirtexting: How To Text Your Way To His Heart say:


    When it comes to communicating, our generation has shorter attention spans and greater expectations. Gone are the days when we spent time getting to know one another over hours of intimate phone conversations. Today we say it all within 160 characters of writing space. Now when you give a boy your number, you’ll soon receive a “1 new text message” light on your cell.


    Flirtexting certainly has its obvious enticements; it gives us time to think about what we want to say, it removes the pressure of having to commit to lengthy phone conversations- and it provides a comfortable physical distance that not only helps us pace the development of a relationship, but also permits us to flirt with multiple people over SMS messages.


    In an age where people get married later, have children later, and like to keep options open in the search for true love- a well played flirtext can work well in one’s favour. But for those who become too dependent on texting, relationships can just as easily begin in a text as they can end in one. People increasingly avoid direct confrontations, preferring to shield themselves against too many questions, and of course having to face or dish out rejection.



    ‘Sexting’: Legal problem, awareness issue, or, modern-day flirting?


    A survey conducted in 2008 by TRU, the global leader in tween, teen and twenty-somethings research, has caused quite a media stir concerning sexting. The survey was fielded online to a total of 1, 280 respondents- 653 teens (ages 13-19) and 627 young adults (20-26). The results found that one in five teenagers have shared nude or semi-nude photos of themselves with their cell phone or online.


    Six Pennsylvania high school students are facing serious criminal charges after three teenage girls allegedly took nude and semi-nude photos of each other and shared them with male classmates via their cell phones. One of the boys had his phone turned on in class. Against school policy, when an administrator came to confiscate the phone, they found a naked picture of one of the girls. The police were immediately called in and the investigation lead to more inappropriate photos. The female students aged 14 to 15 years old, face charges of manufacturing, disseminating or possessing child pornography while the boys, who are 16 and 17, face charges of possession source.


    Many people argue that these charges are too severe. Parents and educators should better monitor their kids’ cell phone use and play a more active role in increasing awareness about the possible consequences and dangers of sexting. But young people may take for granted what perils could lie ahead.


    "Oh gee...thats..uhhh..nice"

    18 year old Jesse Logan had sent nude pictures of herself to a boyfriend. When he and Jesse broke up, he sent those pictures to other girls in their high school. Jesse was harassed by these girls, who called her a slut and a whore. Eventually the abuse was so bad, she stopped attending school. After a while, Jesse decided to speak up about her story on a Cincinnati television station to “make sure no else [would] ever have to go through this again”. Not even two months after the interview, she hung herself in her bedroom.


    Though every generation tries to break free from constraints set by previous ones, and flirting is far from being inert, the lines of where flirtation becomes potentially dangerous can get blurred, especially when at a young and influential age. Moreover, with technology evolving at an ever-rapid speed, both parents and kids may not be fully aware of the repercussions their actions can have.


    What many young people consider a modern way of flirting, is still a relatively loose concept in need of some proper stitching.

  • So this week brings us some really good news.  The Nokia E75 NAM (North American version) is coming to PureMobile this week.   That means that you'll be able to use North American HSDP or 3G with the phone rather then having to suffer on the slower EDGE network.


    This is great news.  This means all the goodies that come wiht the Nokia E75 will be finally fully available.  You get the convenience of Nokia's first slider phone, Wi-Fi,  MicroSD support with a 4GB card included.


    According to a review from Softpedia for the display quality


    ...As usual, the colors, the contrast, as well as the quality of the image displayed are flawless. Add to that perfect sunlight eligibility and you get an excellent display that can meet any user’s expectations....


    And in a review from MobileBurn the have a positive review of the keyboard


    The QWERTY keyboard is extremely pleasurable to type on, with large keys and easy-to-read labels. Like the numeric keypad, the QWERTY keyboard's backlight is bright and even, illuminating even the outer keys. There is also some space between the top keys and the top half of the phone, so you shouldn't have any trouble hitting these top keys.


    From the reviews this seems to be a very good phone and with the Nokia E75 NAM now released everyone can enjoy the phone

  • So thanks to both BoyGeniusReport.com and Crackberry.com it looks like we have another new Blackberry coming sometime this year.  We've already heard about a Storm 2 coming out sometime this year and the Curve 8520, but not it looks like we have the Blackberry Onyx coming this year too.


    The Blackberry Onyx is also being called the Driftwood and it is said to be part of the 96xx series of phones.  This means that it is going to be a 3G phone and from the looks of the pictures it looks more like a Curve then a Bold.


    From what is being said by BoyGeniusReport.com it looks like it will have some decent specs


     


    • AWS 1700MHz + 2100MHz UMTS/HSDPA
    • 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera
    • GPS
    • Wi-Fi
    • QWERTY keyboard
    • Optical trackpad
    • 480×360 screen
    • Carbon fiber-esque back battery cover (the whole back is a carbon fiber pattern apparently)

     


    The Onyx seems to have the same specs to the Curve 8900 and it's going to have 3G for T-Mobile in the US and it does seem like it will ship with the optical track ball that was introduced to everyone last week on teh Curve 8520.


    The real question now is does RIM have too many phones on the market.  Recently with the Bold 9000, Curve 8900, Pearl 8220 Flip, Curve 8520, Curve 83xx, Pearl 81xx,  and now the Onyx 96xx we are selling a lot of phones on the market.  Only time will tell how any of them will do but at present the Bold and Curve 8900 are some of the nicest ones RIM has produced to date.
