Moshi for iPad

  • We've all been there.


    You think you're phone's turned off, or at least in silent mode, only to have your mariachi ringtone go off in the middle of a movie, a speech, or at work.


    But unless you've been yelled at by Hugh Jackman, chastised by the President, or have otherwise had your mortification bandied about YouTube, it can't be as bad as these cellphone ringer fails.


    Here we bring you the top 5 biggest cellphone interruptions ever caught on film. Some a cringe-inducing and awkward, while others are hilarious, but all pretty epic. Enjoy!


    5. Alizé Cornet's tennis match interruption


    In a tennis match against Caroline Wozniacki, Alizé Cornet's concentration is broken by a ringing phone as she prepares to serve. The kicker? It's her own!



    4. Hugh Jackman freaks at ringing phone during live performance


    During a live performance in a Broadway play, Hugh Jackman and a castmate are interrupted by a cellphone. Obviously annoyed, Jackman breaks character and calls out the rudeness off the offender. Oops!



    3. Darren Criss' own phone halts live concert


    It's always embarrassing to have your phone go off during a live concert, but just imagine how you'd feel if you were the one performing.


    That's exactly what happens to Darren Criss in this video of him performing Katy Perry's Teenage Dream. Wait for Criss' reaction at 1:20.



    2. Obama responds to "duck ringtone" interruption


    It's Obama versus a duck in this one. While giving a televised speech, the President is distracted by a quacking cellphone, and his reaction is priceless:


    "Where do you guys get these ringtones, by the way?" he quips as his audience laughs.



    1. Best ever response to a cellphone interruption.


    This could very well be the best reaction a performer has ever given to a cellphone interruption.


    The violinist in this video keeps his cool after being interrupted not once, but twice, by a pretty loud Nokia ringtone. Just watch it, we don't want to give away the rest.

  • Christmas is less than a month away, and as the days pass, the likelihood of finding a gift for everyone on your list diminishes, right? Wrong.


    There are some gifts everyone loves. These days, there isn't a person out there who wouldn't love some sort of gadget or tech-related gift. And, with a quick look into the huge variety of mobile accessories out there, you can easily get through your Christmas shopping and find the right gift for everyone this season.


    So Pure Mobile is rounding up the top Christmas gift ideas in mobile accessories and tech for every type – from the sporty to the style-savvy, and even your parents, we've got something that'll make them happy this holiday season.


    For the Outdoorsy Athlete: Sony SmartWatch



    It's hard to check your phone when you're outside running 5 k every morning. So the jock in your life will probably appreciate a hands-free way to stay connected without interrupting their workout. Enter the Sony SmartWatch.


    This high-tech wristwatch works with Bluetooth-enabled Android deices to let the wearer check and control their phone, all from their wrist – an ideal gift for the sporty or outdoorsy type.


    For the Smartphone Addict: Glider Gloves


    There's at least one phone junkie in your life, and you know by now that rather than try an pry their smartphone out of their hands, it's easier to just enable them with a smartphone-related gift. Make sure they can use their beloved device, no mater what the weather, with a pair of conductive touchscreen gloves that'll let them play with their apps even in the middle of a snowstorm.


    Glider Gloves makes models for both men and women, ranging from the thinner Urban Gloves model, to the thick Winter Gloves model. They even come in fun colors for the ladies, like pink and purple.


    For your folks: BlueTooth Car Kit


    Nothing says "I love you Mom and Dad" like looking out for their safety. And a BlueTooth Car Kit will do just that.


    Your folks will be able to talk, use GPS, and listen to music hands-free and much more safely. For crystal clear sound quality, easy touch buttons, and slim compact design, we recommend Plantronics' K 100.


    For the music lover: High-end Headphones/Portable Speaker



    for real music lovers, being able to get great audio anywhere is the best gift you could give.


    High-end headphones, like a pair from Beats by Dre, or a portable speaker, like the iHome Portable Speaker for Apple devices, will let the music buff in your life enjoy their favorite tunes on the go.


    For the Fashion Fiend: Stylish Smartphone Cases for Every Outfit 



    Choosing a gift for a fashionable friend can be hard, especially when they already tend to treat themselves to whatever tickles their fancy.


    Why not give them one more way to accessorize with a selection of stylish cases for their iPhone, Android device, or BlackBerry? A brightly colored, boldly patterned or glamourously sparkling smartphone case, like one of the trendy models from iSkin OtterBox, or Incase, will make the perfect addition to their already extensive wardrobe.


    For the Kids: Tablet Creativity from Crayola and Griffin



    If it weren't for their price tag and fragility, it might seem tablets were made expressly for children. Kids love laying with iPads and a gift that'll let them do so without damaging the device will score big with the little ones – and their parents.


    Griffin and Crayola have partnered for just such a purpose on some products that allow kids to safely interact with tablets, like the Crayola Trace & Draw, and Crayola Color Studio – drawing and coloring tools that will keep the kids busy and the hardware safe.

  • If you own a smartphone but live in an American city that's not all that populous, it can get a little frustrating.


    Even if you've got the latest in LTE-capable devices, like the iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S III, your carrier may not even have an LTE network that covers your area yet. But patience pays off, as Sprint subscribers in over 11 small and medium-sized U.S> cities and counties are about to find out.


    The carrier announced yesterday that it's expanding its 4G LTE service in a few new U.S. cities, listed below:


    Anderson, Muncie, and South Bend/Mishawaka, Indiana; Salina, Kan.; Hagerstown, Maryland.; Peabody, Massachusetts.; Harrisburg, Carlisle, and Hershey, Pennsylvania.; Harrisonburg, Winchester, and Clarke and Shenandoah Counties, Virginia.; and Jefferson and Martinsburg Counties, West Virginia.


    As 9 to 5 Mac notes, "the term 'cities' is a little stretched in this instance as each population is either near or well below the 50,000 mark," but we actually see that as a positive. Just because a smartphone owner doesn't live in a metropolis doesn't mean they're not interested in LTE.



    And the fact that Sprint carries LTE-capable phones from the likes of Samsung, LG and HTC won't mean much to a possible subscriber whose area doesn't get LTE service.


    In fact, writes 9 to 5 Mac, "Sprint offers the iPhone but does not carry the 4G LTE iPad partly due to its thin LTE spread, although it has steadily tried to thicken 4G LTE data coverage in recent months."


    But the carrier has been trying to address that. Aside from the 11 newly added cities, Sprint expanded their LTE network this past fall to 100 U.S. cities. Meanwhile, as they continue to brng LTE to new markets, Sprint promises "3G customers in these areas, [...] can expect to see better coverage, improved network reliability and voice quality once the improvements come to their areas."

  • First off, apologies for the blurriness of the above photo. But hey, with leaks about upcoming and yet-to-be-revealed technology, we'll take what we can get.


    What you're looking at here may just be the Qwerty keypad for the BlackBerry 10 N-Series Qwerty/touch device. The image leaked from Chinese tech site iiBerry, and was picked up by CrackBerry and Mobile Syrup both. And despite its really poor quality, it's actually the best shot we've seen yet of (a part of) BlackBerry's newest Qwerty device.


    So what can we take away from the shot? Well, the keypad does certainly have that signature BlackBerry look, though, as CrackBerry points out, the curved chrome frets of the BlackBerry Bold line have been replaced with straight ones.


    The BlackBerry Bold 9900's curved chrome frets appear straight on the keypad in the leaked photo

     


    RIM has already announced that they'll be officially unveiling their new devices – which include the N-Series Qwerty/touch device as well as an L-Series all-touch phone – January 30. So we'll only be able to confirm then what the new BB10 Qwerty phone will look like.


    In the meantime, we wait and pray that some third-party BlackBerry accessories manufacturer lets another pic of the new BB10 devices leak out.

  • Yesterday we promised it, and today we deliver.


    Black Friday deals have hit Pure Mobile and today's featured mobile accessory of the week is a special we're running on one of the best pair of headphones on the market – Incase's Reflex Headphones.


    These flex-fit headphones are a pretty great deal, even when they're not on sale. Their sleek and compact design with contoured edges is comfortable and attractive, and more importantly, they provide really great sound, especially for the price range.


    In a review, Cult of Android remarked "Incase’s entire line of ‘phones seems to have been designed with the goal of combining two basic traits — hot looks and great sound (for the money) — and the Reflex is swathed in both."


    Incase has paid a lot of attention to the details here. The Reflex's headband has a flexible steel core, so it can manage a fair amount of abuse, but it's nicely padded in fabric for ultimate comfort. Likewise, you won't find any sharp corners, edges or unnecessary bulk on these headphones.



    As for sound, Incase's aim with the Reflex Headphones has been to deliver the most natural sound possible:


    "Our custom-tuned audio drivers deliver natural sound that accurately reproduces the source audio, no matter what you're listening to."


    As Cult of Android remarked, that'll probably suit those whose "tastes run toward the more refined and less boomy. There’s bass, but it’s measured [...] Tracks pop with color and texture, and the set’s definition made them sound surprisingly good even compared with reference sets in their league."


    And thanks to the fact that Incase has designed the Reflex Headphones in a wide range of colors and styles – some have a bright pop of color on the inside, others are clad in denim – you won't feel like a sheep wearing them, even if everyone you know is smart enough to get a pair of their own.


    Bravo, Incase. Bravo.

  • On our Canadian blog, we've been speculating for months now about the launch date of BlackBerry's new BB10 operating system, and most of all, about the two new BlackBerry devices that go along with it.


    But the countdown has now officially begun! BlackBerry maker RIM recently that they'll be holding their BB10 launch event January 30, 2013. What's more, they'll be doing it simultaneously in different countries.


    But perhaps more so than the OS itself, what many of us have really been waiting for is the  hardware. The two new devices have been much-leaked over the past months, and have since been confirmed as a BlackBerry Curve-like Qwerty/touch phone and an all-touch device that will be the first of its kind for RIM.


    RIM will be unveiling its new BB10 smartphones January 30, a Qwerty/touch phone and an all-touch device

     


    So here's the really exciting part: not only will the January 30 event mark BB10's official launch, it'll also act as the unveiling for the two new BlackBerry handsets where the press release promises "details of the smartphones and their availability will be announced."


    But Mobile Syrup thinks they've already got a handle on that. Citing a Reuters report that "has Kristian Tear, RIM’s Chief Operating Officer, going on record," Mobile Syrup says new BB 10 devices are expected to hit stores “not too long after” the January 30 event.


    "Personally," writes Mobile Syrup, "‘not too long’ sounds like we could see them hit our carriers by February, but that’s purely speculation."


    In any case, such a date, if accurate, would not only be squarely within the first quarter timeframe that RIM previously gave for the launch of BB10 and release of the new BlackBerry smartphones but would actually be ahead of the March date some analysts had projected.

  • Lebron James dons Beats headphones on ESPN before a Yankees-Red Sox game

     


    For fashionstas, there's celebrity style – be it the latest handbag, designer suit, or ridiculously expensive shoe.


    But for us gadget lovers, there's star tech. We're always dying to know what devices the celebrities are using, and how they dress them up.  So this week, the Pure Mobile blog has scoped out the hottest mobile accessories in Hollywood.


    The good news? You don't have to be rich and famous to steal these stars' gadget style.


    1: Hugh Jackman's lime green iPad case


    We're green with envy for Hugh Jackman's lime iPad case

     


    Judging by his taste for green mobile accessories, you'd think Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman might have preferred to play a different superhero – the Hulk. He was spotted with this bright green iPad case while out and about.


    Well, if he ever needed a data cable to go with it, there's always the Apple-compatible  Fluro Green Sync n' Charge cable from Incase. Now we just need to get him a very small pair of purple pants...


    2: Blake Lively's black hardshell iPad case


    Blake Lively keeps it simple with a black hardshell iPad case

     


    We're not entirely sure who made the black hardshell iPad case Gossip Girl's Blake Lively is toting in this spicture, but our guess is Incipio.


    It defintiely has the look of a signature Incipio accessory and if you wanted to steal Blake's style, Incipio's Lexington HardShell case for iPad 3 in black is pretty much as close as you can get. Plus, it's probably way cheaper than copying her handbag.


    3. Reese Witherspoon's Pink BlackBerry Curve Case


    Lately, Reese Witherspoon has been showing her girly side with a pink BlackBerry Curve skin

     


    Reese Witherspoon likes to switch up her BlackBerry, as well as her smartphone cases.


    Lately she's been seen with an adorable, hot pink rubberized skin for her BlackBerry Curve. Love it? BlackBerry makes a similar rubberized skin in pink and white for girly-girls like Reese, and it coes in at just under five bucks. Style. Stolen.


    4. The President's black leather BlackBerry sleeve


    Presidential elegance: Obama's black leather Blackberry pouch

     


    When you're the President, you can't exactly go flashing a smartphone case with rhinestones on it. Instead, U.S. President Barack Obama keeps it classic, with a black leather Blackberry pocket sleeve on his belt.


    Get the look of Washington's most high-profile figure with the sleek and elegant black Leather Pocket case from BlackBerry. Just don't expect to take over the Oval Office or anything.


    5. Hollywood's obsession with Beats headphones


    Lil Wayne's insane diamond-encrusted Beats by Dr. Dre Headphones

     


    Hollywood, and recording artists in particular, seem to be obsessed with Beats headphones. The Beats by Dr. Dre line includes earbuds too, but it's the over-the-ear Beats models that have racked up a list of celebrity fans like Gwen Stefani, Lebron James, Justin Bieber and tons more.


    Gwen Stefani's more modest Beats headphones lack the precious jewels

     


    Lil Wayne even has a special pair of diamond-encrusted Beats headphones, though we're thinking those are probably pretty hard to come by. Still, you can rock stardom's leading headphones in models that don't cost more than than a king's ransom.


    Oh, Lil Wayne, why you got to be so fresh?

  • Samsung's latest "phablet," the Galaxy Note II, is currently only available in Titanium Grey and Marble White

     


    We get it. Smartphones are kind of like cars when it comes to color. Most people aren't going to rush out and get a hot pink or chartreuse model when they can stick with a basic hue like black or silver. And accordingly, smartphone makers tend to play it safe with new devices, usually releasing them in a pretty sober spectrum.


    But, just like cars, sometimes we want our cellphones to be a little more distinct and it seems Samsung gets that. The company launched a new line of nature-inspired colors for their Galaxy S III phone back in August, and SamMobile reported today that they'll be doing the same with their latest "phablet," the Galaxy Note II. At the moment the device is only available in Titanium Grey and Marble White.


    Samsung's color variants for the Galaxy S III line (L to R): Sapphire Black, Garnet Red, Amber Brown, and Titanium Grey

     


    So far, the Galaxy Note II's new color variants are just a rumor. SamMobile cites an "insider" who says the new device will start rolling out in new hues like Amber Brown, Topaz Blue and Ruby Wine as early as this December or the beginning of 2013.


    And while we've already seen the color Samsung calls Amber Brown in their newest Galaxy S III models, the other rumored color names don't match up to anything we've seen from Samsung yet.


    In any case, if you've been thinking about getting a Galaxy Note II but haven't done so yet, it might be worthwhile to wait until after the holidays, unless of course you're into basic black and minimalist white.

  • Little capsules, big sound from XMI's X-Mini II Capsule Speaker

     


    They may look like Christmas ornaments in the above pic, but today's pick for mobile accessory of the week, the XMI X-Mini II Capsule Speaker, is probably more fit as a stocking stuffer.


    These diminutive pod speakers may be small, but they pack big sound. And since they're compatible with pretty much every laptop, smartphone or media player out there – from iPod and iPhone to BlackBerry and Android handsets – there's a thousand and one uses for them.


    XMI's X-Mini II Capsule Speaker is compatible with almost every laptop, media player, or smartphone out there

     


    There are a lot of speakers for smartphones and other devices on the market, but there are a few reasons we like the X-Mini line.


    First is their size. Truly mini, this round little ball of a speaker fits in the palm of your hand and is small enough to easily slip in your pocket.


    But don't be fooled. Just one of these babies can produce a nice loud sound that's full and clear. Plus, their Bass Xpansion System will give you top notch bass performance – none of that tinny nonsense you normally get from upping your laptop's volume to the max.


    Not to get too personal here, but I've used them in lieu of a sound system at parties and they really do give volume and clarity that rivals a stereo, except you can use them anywhere: in the car, outdoors, whatever.


    You can interconnect a bunch of X-Mini II Capsule Speakers for a crazy daisy chain of super volume

     


    Though one X-Mini Capsule Speaker is usually enough, if you're really looking for movie theatre-level volume, they've each got a Buddy Jack, so you can connect a few together to make a crazy daisy chain of sound.


    Lastly, we love them because they look as good as they sound. Compact, round and neat, they come in a huge range of colors, from basic black and silver to green, blue, orange, red, pink and even purple.


    You could even hang a bunch of red and green ones on your tree this year instead of decorations and see how long it takes for all the pine needles to blow off. We're guessing it wouldn't take long.
