    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

    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.

  • The BlackBerry Q5 may have finally crept out of the shadows and reportedly onto South African and UK shelves after releasing last month in the UAE, and is expected to move on to other emerging markets over the next month. The QWERTY enabled BlackBerry Q5 was announced back in May as a mid-level, yet still feature packed, device targeted towards younger and more frugal audiences in emerging markets.


    BlackBerry, the canadian smartphone maker and top brand with Puremobile, is slowly but surely unleashing its third phone this year following the release of the Z10 and Q10 earlier in 2013. The Q5 immediately resembles the latter, adopting the traditional look of BlackBerry’s fabled Bold, Curve, and now Q10. The Q5 features a 3.1” 720px720p display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and the new BlackBerry 10 Operating System. Camera-wise, the Q5 will feature a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p HD recording, and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera ideal for BBM chatting.



    Unlike prior BlackBerry phones, the company is looking to make a new visual splash by offering this model of the phone in four different colours. The Q5 will eventually release in white, black, pink, and a particularly dynamic red. The white and red models are sure to impress as they appear to be very sharp and stylish.


    While we are in the know about the features of this phone, we are still quite in the dark over this phone’s North American release. When the phone was unveiled it was made clear that this phone was going to be marketed towards emerging markets. At this point no real indication has been given regarding when this phone will cross the pond and release in North American markets. BlackBerry’s presence in non-traditional and emerging markets has been its anchor throughout the storm it has faced globally. It seems they are content to wait things out in the safely of Eurasia before tackling the North American market again.
