  • The Nokia X3: FCC Approved
    Posted on November 9, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    Good news Nokia fans! The Nokia X3 made it. Rather surprising but it passed through FCC's bowels. The Nokia X3 was launched in September this year and not many really expected it to be in the US like many of the company's unique and fun handsets. But hey, it is now here in all its glory. The sleek handset was revealed in Germany together with the Nokia X6 last September. It came with the first wave of Nokia's X Series.

    The Nokia X3 (not the SE X3) is not 3G equipped so either T-Mobile or AT&T will be carrying this new handset. Its European specs remain; the slider comes with a 3.2 megapixel cam along with an FM radio with stereo speakers, dedicated music keys, and microSD ports ready for expansion.


    For music lovers, it is interesting to note that the Nokia X3 enables its users to continue listening to favorite songs while on a flight -thanks to Nokia's innovative “flight mode” that does not affect any signal or frequencies while onboard a plane. Now that is cool.

    The X3's messaging system is well supported. It has an inbox for SMS and MMS in messenger/conversational view while Nokia Xpress Audio Messaging is also supported. It also brings in users' instant messaging and email accounts on the device through Nokia Messaging 2.0.

    The Nokia X3 price in Europe is at 115 Euros (when unlocked) so it will probably go in a similar price here as well. At $169 with all these specs, that is a good enough deal.

    American fans are now salivating for the phone's release in the US and that is of course not without basis since the phone is amazing in its own right. In fact, many of us are now thinking of throwing our old handsets away and get this Nokia X3. Thank goodness, it passed FCC's process! Amen to that.

  • Verizon and Samsung's Convoy
    Posted on November 9, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    Late last week, Verizon Wireless and Samsung announced the new push-to-talk handset from Samsung -the Samsung Convoy.  The very durable phone can withstand shock, vibration, humidity, salt fog, solar radiation, low and high temperature, and altitude. It is also dust resistant which is rather cool for a handset. It is indeed a durable phone because everything under the hood is built to mil-spec. No more worrying about dropping your phone because it the Samsung Convoy can withstand that. Since it is waterproof, no need to worry about rain or spilling water on your phone anymore.

    The Convoy is the perfect partner on the road armed with high quality stereo speakers, you will never get lonely while trekking a dirt road. You will not get lost either because the Convoy has GPS. For those who are fond of sending photos, videos, or music, the convoy is equipped with Bluetooth 2.1. If taking photos through your handset is ideal for you, fret no more because Samsung's Convoy has a 2-megapixel camera as well.

    samsung-verizonThis rather rugged phone has an extended battery life. People who love to literally go the distance will love this cell phone as well. Apart from its durability, one of the best features of the Convoy is its affordable price. It will be out on November 15 for only $50.

    With a very durable phone at such a low price, Samsung fans are now starting to think of changing their phones and getting that Convoy. Who would not want a Convoy anyway -it is durable, looks rather rugged but completely sturdy, and has the basics of a good functioning phone.

    For more information about agreements and other details about the Convoy, you can go and visit Verizon Wireless or just wait for updates here. The lot of us is looking forward to its release as well.

  • Nokia has added a low-end selection of Nokia handsets -the Nokia 1616, 1818, Nokia 2220 slide and the 2690. The four new handsets have basic features with really low price tags.

    Let us get to know them better shall we? The Nokia 2690 has a VGA camera along with an FM radio/built-in stereo and a 3.5mm audio jack. It also has microUSB support and Bluetooth. It is global roaming capable with its quad band and the internal memory can support up to 8GB.


    With it being quite cheap, it does not mean, the thrifty buyer will have a black and white phone. In fact, the Nokia 2690 includes a 1.8 inch 262K colors LCD display. The resolution is 128 x 160 pixels.

    The estimated price is 54 Euros that is before taxes -that is still quite cheap with the functionality and capability the phone has. It will be available in white silver, graphite, blue and hot pink. It will be out in Europe in the first quarter of 2010.

    The Nokia 2220 slide that is capable of showing 65K colors with a resolution the same as that of 2690. It comes with an FM radio a VGA camera and an EDGE support. The 2220 slide will have six sexy color options: turquoise, graphite, warm silver, purple, hot pink and blue. This phone will cost about 45 Euros and will come out before the end of '09.


    Ultra low-end Nokia 1616 and 1800 come with an LCD display of 65K colors and a resolution of 128 x 160 pixels. The two handsets also has LED flashlights and owners can change color covers anytime. The 1616 has a standard 3.5 audio jack while the 1800 has a headset included for its FM radio.

    The 1800 will be out in 2010 at 26 Euros while the 1616 will be out in the earlier part of next year at an affordable 24 Euro rate.

  • Gas is not the only one with the right to a price hike, just recently, cell phone usage might experience a price hike as well -at least to Verizon customers.

    Raising early termination fees for advanced devices seems like being held hostage. A year ago Verizon and other cell phone service providers were pushed by the FCC and a number of consumers to lessen their Early Termination Fee (EFT). It gained a lot of attention when Verizon Wireless paid $21 million to settle a California lawsuit.

    Before that, most of the major carriers, including Verizon of course, stonewalled the issue but by October, AT&T started relaxing its EFT rules. Due to the incident, the FCC focused on the EFT thing with Chairperson Kevin Martin favoring a nationwide resolution with regards to termination fees. Verizon seconded Martin's suggestion of prorating of fees and cell phone users thought the EFT problem has already been buried.

    VerizonJust yesterday, news came out that Verizon is doing a price hike on termination fees. Verizon customers are now saying that Verizon used to be a great service provider. Now the average American says, it is nothing but a big rip off. Some people used to have two accounts and 5 phones or more with the service provider but because of their fees here and there, the giant is now losing customers left and right.

    Enter the early termination fee and this will escalate to lawsuits (yet again). We are still in a recession and even if they say that the economy is getting better, it is still difficult to make enough money. Now, who can afford high fees on top of other fees “incurred” during your contract with any of these big companies and if you want to terminate your contract because you cannot make ends meet -they will charge you with higher fees (again).

  • LG Chocolate Touch: Review & Features
    Posted on November 4, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    The next incarnation of LG’s Chocolate series began in 2006, the LG Chocolate Touch, is slated for release during the 4th quarter of 2009 and promises to be a worthy successor in the line-up.  As implied by the name, the LG Chocolate Touch will be the first touchscreen model in the series.  The soft-touch coating on the back cover of the device is a nice feature, making the phone easy to hold onto.  The 3 inch vibrant touchscreen doesn’t have much flex and responds quickly and accurately to touch commands.  A proximity sensor turns off the display’s touch functions when the phone is being held up for a call and a light sensor automatically adjusts the display’s backlight level according to room lighting.  In typical fashion for a touchscreen device, the only physical keys located on the front face and below the screen are a Talk, Back (which doubles as Voice Command), and End/Power button. On the sides of the phone are also a few other dedicated buttons, including a display lock, speakerphone, music, and camera button.  The phone includes a 3.2MP camera for basic picture-taking needs.


    Building on it’s “Chocolate” legacy, the LG Chocolate Touch really outshines the touchscreen competition when it comes to its media player capabilities.  Similar to a music only dedicated device, music downloaded onto the phone is categorized by All Songs, Genres, Artists, Albums, and Playlists.  The album cover shows when a song is playing with all the media player commands you will need to change volume level, back up or move forward in the song, or skip it altogether.  The ability to manually adjust equalizer settings on the media player is a feature welcomed by serious music lovers everywhere.  It is easy to take for granted that a standard 3.5mm headphone jack is included, but somehow it is often overlooked by developers, making it’s inclusion a huge plus.  The LG Chocolate Touch builds nicely upon the strengths of its predecessors, while incorporating new features that keep it in line with the best of today’s technology.

  • Samsung S5560 Announced
    Posted on November 3, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    Samsung is preparing the release of a new touchscreen phone with Wi-Fi called the Samsung S5560.  It appears to be a pretty solid contender on the mid-level cell phone market.  Equipped with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a Browser with Java support, it should make an excellent choice for everyday business use.  The battery gets up to an impressive 9.5 hours of talk time, a huge plus for the busy professional.  Boasting a 3 inch touchscreen with 240x 400 pixel resolution it will make using internet functions a breeze whether reading and responding to emails or general browsing.  Minimal outside controls means that most navigation will be through touchscreen commands only.  Like previous Samsung models the Samsung S5560 will utilize their TouchWiz user interface.  An  accelerometer sensor allows you to view images in portrait or landscape view switching automatically when you tilt the phone to the side.


    The Samsung S5560 would already stand out as a solid cell phone model, but including a 5MP camera with LED Flash and autofocus makes it stand out from the crowd.  The camera also features smile and blink detection as well as image stabilization, pretty much guaranteeing that you will get some pretty good shots.  The 78MB of internal data storage won’t take you far with music and video files as well as some of the pretty hefty picture files, but that is easily remedied with an additional microSD card which is supported up to 16MB.  The media player should fit most needs playing MP3/WAV/eAAC+ audio files and H.263/H.264/MP4 video files.  The addition of Stereo FM radio with RDS will nicely round out anyone’s music collection and the inclusion of a standard 3.5mm audio jack is a nice touch that allows the user to listen to music anywhere with their favorite standard headphones.  The Samsung S5560 is a smart balance of business and entertainment functions that will serve its owner well.

  • The Sony Ericsson U100i Yari is opening the rest of the world mobile phone market to the concept of gesture gaming, which has previously only been on models sold in Japan.  Already loaded with a wide game variety quickly accessible from the desktop including gesture, motion and standard games, the Yari also makes it easy to view and download new games from the PlayNow arena.  Already familiar to the US via the Nintendo Wii gaming system, gesture gaming interprets your movements to play the game, rather than pressing a couple buttons like on standard games.  On the entertainment front, the Sony Ericsson U100i Yari also includes an FM stereo with RDS access and a strong music player with stereo speakers for easy listening.  A music call feature allows you to share your favorite music tracks with friends while you talk on the phone.  The 5MP camera takes excellent pictures and video footage and includes a photo/video light, geo-tagging, face and smile detection, and image stabilization. 


    A candybar style model with slider for built in keypad, the Sony Ericsson U100i Yari, boasts several features outside of the entertainment front as well. An accelerometer sensor changes the 2.4” display from portrait to landscape depending on how the phone is held up.  For owners who find the 60MB of internal memory to be inadequate, microSD card data storage is available and supported up to an additional 16GB of memory.  On a more practical side, the Sony Ericsson U100i Yari is Bluetooth capable and has GPS support with Wayfinder Navigation.  On a 2G network the battery can last up to 10 hours of talk time or 450 hours on standby.  A strong blend of practical and entertainment features will please anyone who purchases the Sony Ericsson U100i Yari and with all of the unique gaming features even non-gamers may find themselves trying to beat their best score on tennis, boxing, or another of the great games.

  • Review of the Motorola EM30 Cherry Red
    Posted on October 30, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    Anyone looking for a sleek solution to their phone and music storing needs could easily fall in love with the Motorola EM30 Cherry Red.  Thin, light with a striking color scheme of red, and black, this candy bar style device covers the grounds of both phone and portable music player well.  A button activates Motorola’s unique Modeshift Technology to illuminate the keypad and switch the device back and forth between phone and music player.  With the addition of up to an 8GB microSD card, literally thousands of songs can be stored on the Motorola EM30 Cherry Red, and if you happen to tire of your own music, there is always a great variety accessible through the full service FM radio.  A standard headphones jack is built into the phone, so you can use your favorite headphones to listen to music wherever you find yourself.  The screen is purposely a landscape display to make browsing on the HTML Java-enabled browser more accurate, and Windows Media Player compatibility gives you the freedom to easily download music from almost any of your own favorite music download sites quickly.


    In addition to the music player functions, Motorola EM30 Cherry Red also provides the basics for talking and texting.  Bluetooth compatibility, voice dial, and voice memo are all features that can make life easier for those who need and learn how to use them. The device stores up to 1000 unique contacts with multiple phone numbers, and a running call log with the 20 each of the most recent missed, outgoing, and incoming calls.  A 2MP camera with 8X digital zoom is included and is simple to use. The standard Li-ion battery gets a decent 6 hours of talk time or 300 hours of standby.  Wide varieties of ringtones are preloaded, and the device supports polyphonic, MP3 and AAC ringtone files, so that customization of ringtone style could not be easier.  Motorola sums up the phone nicely in their own catchphrase: “…the Motorola EM30 (Cherry Red) connects the sounds that matter most: family, friends, and favorite artists.”

  • HTC Pure Review & Features
    Posted on October 29, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    Windows Mobile 6.5 makes its debut with the HTC Pure, a sharp-looking phone utilizing the convenience of a touch screen interface.  Physical controls are limited to four core buttons including Talk, Back, End, and Windows, a zoom slider on the front face, volume control on the side, and a power/lock button located on the top.  The 3.2-inch touch screen is a nice size for browsing and is capable of great resolution up to 800x480.  Wi-Fi capabilities further simplify web browsing and dual browsers gives the user the choice between Opera Mobile for a basic browser and Internet Explorer Mobile 6.5 software for a fuller, more desktop-like browsing experience including support for Adobe Flash.  GPS and Bluetooth compatibility are both included on the HTC Pure and simplify your gadget needs.  The device boasts the same 5MP camera with digital zoom, touch auto-focus and video recording as its predecessor, the Diamond 2.  Although lacking in on-board storage with only 144MB of data storage built in, a cleverly hidden microSD card slot beneath the battery can accommodate up to an additional 16MB of storage space.


    One thing HTC Pure users will certainly appreciate is the consolidation of all communication logs under each contact.  The full communication history is included whether it is by e-mail, text, or call log, stored for easy to access, and separated by contact.  Easy access to the Windows Marketplace makes it easy to customize the HTC Pure with new functions to meet each individual’s needs, and purchases made are conveniently added to your monthly phone bill so that security isn’t an issue.  The HTC Pure has certainly also delivered in the area of price; for a Smartphone with touch screen experience with access to great features at a more affordable price, check out the HTC Pure and you won’t be disappointed.
