  • While there has been a recent Apple iPhone announcement about the upcoming iPhone OS 4 that is going to include multitasking there is still something for those Verizon faithful to get excited about.  It appears as if Verizon is set to launch some brand new devices that are sure to get many mobile phone fans excited.  Some websites are reporting screen shots of the BlackBerry Bold 9650 and LG Fathom finally making their way into Verizon’s internal systems. 


    While the BlackBerry Bold 9650 release has been widely publicized the Fathom VS750 has not.  This new global Windows Phone with a QWERTY slider, 3.2 inch WVGA display and 3.2 megapixel camera is sure to be a big hit among Verizon Wireless’ faithful.  If you add in the fact that Verizon released a teaser stating six new devices are hitting the market very soon then this all sounds like really exciting news.  With these two devices being seen in Verizon’s internal system we can probably assume that the wait for the other six devices will be short.

    The announcement by Verizon Wireless that six more devices are set to hit the market came as a great surprise to many mobile device consumers.  It has been a while since Verizon has released several new phones so this announcement was probably a little bit overdue.  While there is considerable buzz about what these new phones will look like and what sorts of features they will include one thing is for sure and that is consumers will be able to get their hands on a BlackBerry Bold 9650 or LG Fathom in the very near future.  I personally can not wait to get a look at these two new devices and see what other goodies Verizon has in store.

  • Vonage has recently announced that a new version of their Vonage Mobile app will be coming to the Android platform.  This new version of the Vonage Mobile app will only be available to Android users on the AT&T and T-Mobile networks.  Vonage Mobile allows customers to make voice over IP calls using a W-Fi network which can significantly reduce the costs of making international calls.


    When asked about the upcoming availability on Sprint and Verizon devices Vonage reps were unsure when those devices would be supported by the new app.  While the Vonage reps were unable to offer a timeline for those two networks they did mention that Vonage was looking to expand the product to more devices.  Reps would also not comment on the possibility of Verizon’s new deal with Skype being one of the reasons why this new Vonage app is not available on Verizon Wireless devices.  This new Vonage app is already available for iPhone OS devices which includes the iPod touch as well as BlackBerry devices



    While Vonage may not be that great of an alternative to long distance carriers for your land lines this app certainly is great news for people that are looking to lower the costs of their international phone bills.  As one of the leading VoIP companies around Vonage can offer you great service at an affordable price.  Being able to use Vonage’s services over a Wi-Fi network on your mobile device is an excellent addition to any new smartphone.  With the increase in popularity of Android devices it makes sense that Vonage would focus on getting a new mobile app available for those devices.  With the success they have seen from their iPhone and BlackBerry apps it will be no surprise when the Vonage Mobile app becomes a huge success for Android users as well.

  • One of the most common complaints among iPhone users is the effectiveness of the AT&T wireless network. Many users in the larger cities have reported issues connecting to the AT&T network and have thus had issues using their iPhones from time to time. While these complaints are relatively few and far between they certainly do exist. If you are one of the iPhone customers who have experienced such issues then you should be pleased to hear the news that AT&T and Apple have been working together since late 2009 trying to come up with ways for the iPhone Unlocked Phone to put less strain on the company’s wireless network.

    AT&T sent some wireless network experts to Apple in 2009 to try and find ways to reduce the amount of strain that the iPhone causes for the AT&T network. The companies managed to work together and Apple invented new technologies that changed the way the iPhone connects with AT&T’s cell towers. Based on these meetings the iPhone now puts less stress on the network when checking for text messages and when it searches the area for towers to connect to. AT&T has also taken measures to improve their network as well. AT&T continues to tweak their cell tower configurations and adding cell sites as a part of a 100 day improvement plan.
    As an avid Unlocked iPhone user I can attest to just how annoying connectivity issues can be when using your iPhone in some of the major metropolitan areas. It makes me very happy as a consumer to know that AT&T and Apple are taking the necessary steps to alleviate any problems their customers may be having with their products and putting for all of the effort to produce a more enjoy service.

  • In a report published by the Wall Street Journal it appears as if mobile network provider Verizon Wireless is definitely going to be getting the iPhone Unlocked Phone. Apple is expected to begin producing a new iPhone that could allow US phone carriers other than AT&T to sell the mobile device. The new iPhone would work on a wireless network called CDMA which is used by Verizon Wireless as well as Sprint.

    With Apple set to develop a new version of the iPhone that is compatible with this CDMA technology it appears that their exclusive arrangement with AT&T appears to be coming to an end. While it looks as if Apple is set to release the iPhone on the Verizon network they are also expected to release an updated version for the AT&T network this June. This new AT&T model is expected to be thinner and have a faster processor.
    AT&T’s exclusive deal with Apple has been a crucial element in the carrier’s emergence as the US leader in the smartphone market. For several quarters AT&T has seen most of their growth come from the Unlocked iPhone both in forms of new customers and existing customers switching over to the iPhone. These smartphone customers are important to AT&T as these users generally pay higher monthly bills for the various data and text messaging plans that are required for the iPhone.
    With Apple set to strike a deal to develop iPhones that are compatible with the Verizon network AT&T is looking to take a big hit in the smartphone market. More consumers will have other network options if they want to purchase the iPhone and will not be forced to sign a contract with AT&T. For many iPhone users this will be welcomed news as lots of iPhone users on the AT&T network have experienced connectivity issues in some of the country’s larger markets.

  • One of the more exciting booths at the recent CTIA Wireless convention in Las Vegas was the booth set up by AT&T.  AT&T took advantage of the CTIA Wireless convention to showcase the new U-Verse mobile service and the corresponding app.  The app that is set for release on the Apple iPhone will allow customers to watch content from their U-Verse DVR home setup directly on their mobile device.  Customers will also be able to browse television schedules and set recordings for their home DVR.  Then those videos can then be streamed to either a mobile phone or a connected laptop.


    AT&T has long allowed customers to remotely program their DVR but not the carrier is showcasing the streaming capabilities of the U-Verse Mobile service.  While pricing and specific availability for the new U-Verse app have not been released AT&T has made it clear that the app will not be exclusive to the iPhone.  This service is expected to be released later this year and is sure to be a hit with all of AT&T’s U-Verse subscribers.



    AT&T’s new U-Verse app is just another example of the fantastic advancements we are making with our mobile devices.  It should be pretty amazing to have the capabilities to record your favorite television shows or movies in your home and be able to take those programs with you wherever you go with your mobile device.  This can be the perfect app for those of us who are regularly on the go and do not have time to sit around and watch television.  We can just record the shows that we would like to see and watch them whenever we want wherever we want on our unlocked mobile devices.  This is one of the newest apps that I am really looking forward to its release.

  • On the heels of their recent announcement regarding the upcoming rollout of the highly anticipated 4G network Verizon Wireless’s CTO Anthony Melone has targeted next summer as the time frame for the carrier’s first LTE handset release.  While the aforementioned 4G network is expected to be ready by the end of this year all of us tech junkies will have to wait a little longer for the first unlocked cell phone handset.



    It should be well worth the wait though as these new mobile devices are expected to have the same downloading and uploading speed as your home computer.  In the current test markets in Boston and Seattle engineers were blown away by the results they were seeing which is a great sign for the possibilities to come.  Also, videos will be able to be seen in 1080p high definition which should really revolutionize the way people consume video content on their mobile devices.


    There is one bit of bad news that is expected to come with the awesome power of the new 4G network.  It appears that Verizon and even AT&T are headed down the path of eliminating unlimited data plans and moving to a tiered structure.  While it does make sense for these companies to charge people for the amount of data they download or even upload it is still a bummer that we finally get some great internet speeds on our mobile devices like the Blackberry Pearl but will have to pay more to fully enjoy them.

  • Android’s U.S. Market Share Soars
    Posted on March 25, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    Looking at comScore’s January quarter cell phone manufacturer and platform market share statistics in the United States, we see some interesting trends.  Despite a sharp decrease in global sales, Motorola mobile devices surprisingly still maintains a 22.9% market share of American cell phone subscribers.  They saw a 1.2% decrease since October 2009, which is strange considering the release of the success of the Droid in recent months.  Considering Motorola’s lack of smart phone offerings, it tells you that the smart phone does not quite dominate the cell phone market as much as one might expect.  Samsung recently claimed to hold the number one spot in U.S. market share, but as with any claim, you need to take with a grain of salt and dig a little deeper.  When referring to total sales, and not current subscribers, this claim could be feasible, as there are still a huge number of legacy RAZR phones floating around and inflating these numbers.


    Motorola Cell Phones


    Looking at the other popular smart phone manufacturers and platforms, Blackberry, iPhone, and Android all saw gains this quarter, while Palm and Windows Mobile each saw large downturns.  Regarding the decreases, it seems as though most can be attributed to a large number of Palm OS and WinMO phone subscribers coming off their contracts.  At this point, at the tail end of two year contracts, those operating systems are antiquated at best.  It’s well known that WinMo is well past its expiration date, with most people who used Windows Mobile heading to the Droid, iPhone, or Blackberry.


    Blackberry and iPhone still dominate the smartphone landscape, but it seems like Droid is determined to steal some market share, as they’ve already gained 4.3% since it was released in November 2009.  It will be interesting to see if the Droid can continue to win over loyal iPhone and Blackberry users in the next quarter.

  • While the new Windows 7 phone that is set to come out very soon has generated a lot of buzz this might be some buzz that is less popular.  It appears as if the only way to get apps for your new Windows 7 phone will be to purchase those apps through the Windows Phone Marketplace.  Much like the Apple’s App Store for the iPhone there will be only one way to get apps onto the new Windows 7 device.



    Also, developers of any new apps for the Windows 7 phone will have to submit their apps to the marketplace where their app will be approved or rejected for inclusion into the Windows Phone Marketplace much like a developer does currently for the iPhone.  Microsoft plans to learn from Apple’s mistakes however and provide much more transparency into their approval process.  This will be welcomed news for programmers as they can get a much better sense for what goes on behind the scenes and what will and will not be approved by the marketplace.


    Apps for the new windows phone can be purchased through the device itself or via the Zune desktop client.  One cool feature of the Windows 7 phone app’s is that once a customer has downloaded an app it can be deleted and downloaded again at a later date as the apps are linked to a customer’s Microsoft Live account and not with the phone itself.


    All of this news sounds pretty standard as Microsoft is just following the path set forth by Apple.  It should be pretty interesting to see what kind of apps the Windows 7 phone has that the iPhone does not.  Also, I will be interested to see if Microsoft sticks to their word about providing a more transparent app approval process.

  • In a recent survey performed by Crowd Science ArsTecnica is reporting that 40% of BlackBerry users indicated they have plans to switch out their BlackBerry for an iPhone when their contracts are up.  Some other interesting facts that this survey dug up are:


    • 33% of iPhone owners and 16% of BlackBerry owners use their device exclusively for personal use, not work
    • 1% of iPhone owners and 7% of BlackBerry owners use their device exclusively for business purposes
    • 66% of iPhone owners and 77% of BlackBerry owners are using their device for both business and personal purposes

    While the 40% might not be all that accurate and is probably a little on the high side, the survey had a margin of error of +/- 10%, it is still an alarming number for BlackBerry to consider.  Even at 30% BlackBerry has to do some careful evaluation of their product to ensure some customer loyalty and not lose their entire customer base to the more personal use friendly iPhone and Droid devices.



    This survey should be an eye opener for BlackBerry and show that their consumers are looking for a device that they can use for both their personal and business needs.  By offer some more apps that cover the personal uses their consumers are looking for BlackBerry will certainly be making their current users much happier.

  • Paypal just updated their iPhone app to include several new handy features.  The biggest change to the app with this current upgrade is the ability to “bump” payments via paypal using the technologies developed by Bump Technologies.  Bump Technologies is famous for their contact and photo sharing app that transfers files when two iPhone users running the app bump their phones together.  This bump triggers an accelerometer action that will move the contents of one phone over to the other.  Now users who are both running the Paypal app can transfer money between their paypal accounts in the same fashion.



    Also included in the update is the ability for paypal users to send money requests to contacts in their iPhone address book.  Paypal users can now also initiate withdrawals to their bank accounts via the iPhone app which can save them a lot of time by not requiring them to sign onto a computer.  This is probably the best addition that was included in the current upgrade.  Being able to withdrawal funds from my paypal account while on the go with the iPhone is sure to be a great convenience.


    It sounds as if Paypal was busy making some much needed upgrades to their iPhone app.  This current upgrade has addressed several of the issues that I had with the app especially the ability to withdrawal funds directly to my bank account.  This will be very handy when I am on the go and receiving payments to my Paypal account.
