  • Vlingo, the maker of a popular Voice command application for a number of cell phone platforms, responded to the launch of Google’s Voice Actions application, this was done by offering Vlingo’s Android application free of cost. Vlingo stated in its blog that its Voice command application is better than the Google version in many respect and also offers similar functionality. In order to compete with the application by Google, Vlingo has now started to offer the Android version free of cost so that it is easier for the user to compare the features of the products.


    Vlingo states that their product has advantages over the one from Google. Vlingo hints, Google has a constraint because it has to promote its services and other content while being a separate developer, Vlingo can take the best of Google and the other services and mix them up.



    Vlingo’s Voice command application does provide some features that that cannot be found in Google’s Voice Actions. These features include Safe Reader, this application reads incoming email messages and texts. Vlingo is available on many platforms like Unlocked Blackberry phone and the iPhone and also on more than one version of Android. Though Google’s voice actions may be attractive for Android, the only Android version in which it is available is 2.2.


    So… a few questions appear before us. Will Android users choose Vlingo over voice actions now that Vlingo is available free of cost? How will everybody take Vlingo’s move to offer such a huge discount and make its app free? It does speak a lot when a company actually tries to compete rather than bad mouth its opponent.

  • BlackBerry releases the Torch
    Posted on August 22, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    It’s official! Finally BlackBerry has answered all the prayers from its ‘worshippers’ and released the new Unlocked Torch 9800, the vertical slider and it will be going live on AT&T. it packs quite a punch, it must be said, for RIM and also the new BlackBerry 6 operating system. The Torch, however, has been hailed as one of the best offerings from RIM in quite some time and the news time that it is getting is nothing short of what it deserves.



    The new device is very impressive, to put in short. The full QWERTY keypad was a cause for concern for many users, but after prolonged sessions of testing it, it has been found to work just fine. The slider display also does not cause any sort of hindrances to the QWERTY keypad in no way, and once you open the keyboard to use it, you will find that the device balances nicely in your hand as well. The BlackBerry 6 also fares quite well and although it is not much different from earlier renditions of the Operating System, the users of BlackBerry unlocked cell phone will more or less be satisfied with the total package that the company is offering them.


    Perhaps the most impressive thing about the Touch is the Touch screen display. RIM’s previous touch screens do not have a very good reputation, but the Torch does it no harm and rather enhances it very much and puts it on the same category as the iPhone or such devices. The response of the display is very prompt and the latest pinch-to-zoom feature is very much a delight to use and is very much like those on the iPhone4 unlocked handset.


    AT&T is offering the BlackBerry for $199 and here is the real test for the phone and everyone is eager to see how it actually fares in the market.

  • As the BlackBerry unlocked 9800 Torch and Motorola DROID 2 go head to head it seems that both AT&T as well as Verizon will be laughing their way to the bank. The DROID 2 is being distributed by Verizon and the time for pre-sale has passed with Verizon now stocking up the sets in their stores with people queuing to get their hands on one of these sets.



    The D2 is offered by Verizon for a price of $199 that is after calculating a $100 rebate for mail-in orders or an online discount for an agreement for a two year agreement. A purchase in-store will help you avoid any waiting for the deliveries of the set but will instantaneously increase your up-front costing. Simply put $100 rebates are valid for purchases made in-store and purchases made online only. Purchases from any third party retailer will cost you $299.


    For those looking to upgrade to the DROID 3 as soon as it releases, the 20 month default contract length will be a hindrance so as a recommendation go for the one-year contract which will allow you to upgrade before you apply for the next contract. Any one who owns the original Verizon Motorola Unlocked DROID will fill you in on the pains of an upgrade if you wish to do so in the contract period. Despite Verizon’s end-of-year upgradation plan, contractual issues prevent D1 owners who are on two-year agreements find an upgrade to D2 a difficult affair to say the least.



    A one year plan on the D2 will cost you $269 after a %100 rebate which is a $70 hike on the two year plan but the deal is you still get to upgrade to the D# with ease. A monthly plan will push the price of your D2 to a pricey $559. A termination fee of $350 applies for early cancellation of contract and a minimum requirement of a data plan worth $29.99 per month is also set up in the terms and conditions. Complications galore, but the set may well be worth it.

  • The Android has arrived! Well technically it arrived a long time back when Google officially released it, but the sales report figures now prove that Google Android has indeed arrived. Brace yourselves people, Google Android sales have beaten figures for the Apple unlocked iPhone4 globally. Need a bigger shock still? Google Android sales have also beaten sales figures for the BlackBerry in the United States. The Android invasion is on! The numbers in all practicality are not very surprising, since several research firms confirm that Android sales are going very strong indeed. Android devices according to Gartner have had 10.6 million sets shipped out into the market this quarter, clearly edging out iOS to be placed third overall, which culminates to close to 17.2% of the market share. What inspires awe is the fact that this is in fact a growth of 850% for Android in a matter of one year.


    Android’s incredible sale figures this quarter is dedicated to the fact that it managed availability across several mobile operators, that too on numerous mobile devices. It has been powering pretty high-profile, high end devices like the Samsung unlocked Galaxy S mobile devices and the HTC EVO 4G.


    A report says that Apple sold around 9 million iPhones this quarter, which culminates to 14.2% share of the mobile market. Out of this the unlocked iPhone 4, itself had sold three million sets in a matter of 3 weeks. Apple, despite not having the biggest market share still posts a higher profit from sales because of the higher profit margin per device it holds out. Before we end up too excited with Google Android or with the Apple iPhone, we would do well to note that RIM and Nokia are still on top of the mobile mountain, when it comes to pure market share. Till date Symbian OS is still the most popular platform for smartphones in the world today commanding close to 41.2% share of the market, with BlackBerry posting a share of 18.2%.

  • Google has decided to give a treat for customers such that they can search more easily using their phones. This feature finally brings the very essential search History onto the Apple’s unlocked iPhone4 and other Android devices. Although one may ask about what are the benefits of search history, this one is really a necessity which was missing otherwise on these phones and now has been fulfilled. Without this feature, one would be nowhere while trying to conduct searches. To think we depend on it so much on our desktops but we cannot access it on our smartphone was in our opinion very big botheration.



    When this application reaches the iPhone 4 and Android devices, one has to enable search history by going to the settings and confirming the save searches under the search history option. The history which will be saved is a combination of the various searches that have been conducted when one has been signed in, even when they are using the services on your computer or the machine at work or even from your phone when you are out and about. The searches are labeled according to the device that you use so that the user can shuffle through them at their own convenience. The searches from the phone are marked with a small phone icon where else the desktop or laptop searches are earmarked with small thumbnail pictures which will help you to identify them and use it for future reference.


    We have done some research on the Unlocked Droid (X) from Motorola and the results that we found were pretty satisfactory. It’s nothing great but it can surely be useful when there is the need for it. With this application, you can for sure edit your searches if you have the need. This application shows how the total online experience is paramount.

  • Cricket Wireless was founded in 1999 and it is a US based company which has its headquarters in San Diego. It is a subsidiary of Leap Wireless and uses its CDMA 1X and 1xEVDO networks. They recently announced their first Advance Wireless Services in Oklahoma City. Cricket Wireless is set for a number of launches in the near future with August 4th, 2010 being the official date when Cricket Wireless announced their latest device- Blackberry Unlocked Curve (8530). Some of the exclusive features of this new Blackberry model include Blackberry Maps through which users can easily spot their locations and get directions to their destination.


    Its almost as good as Google Maps but users have to give substantial proof of their postal zip codes in order to utilise this application to its fullest. The phone also has a full QWERTY keypad which eases messaging. The new model easily fits into your hand, unlike the earlier Blackberry handsets which were almost the sizes of palmtops. The screen has 320x420 pixel resolution which displays over 65,000 colours! Indeed for a business phone the resolution is something which one doesn’t normally expect. Like in a laptop the trackpad lets one scroll through menus, websites and icons which just a gliding action of your fingers, almost similar to any multimedia touch phone.


    Users also get to feel the Mac experience on the new set. Blackberry Desktop, Software for Mac installed in the phone allows users to sync contacts, notes and events. It also has a 2 mega pixel camera through which u can take photos and videos and upload them on the social sites via email or IM applications. To add on it has WiFi, 3G, microSD expansion, speakerphones and a 2.46” TFT LCD display. The new Blackberry Unlocked phone efficiently combines both multimedia and business phone applications.

  • Now with all the other gadgetry that’s hitting the streets these days it’s getting increasingly difficult for the smartphone makers to awe their customers.  With the Apple’s Unlocked iphone4 bringing out its delicious products and Nokia giving Motorola a run for its money in the smart phone department, Droid are bringing out another product right after the release of the Droid X models. Droid X is supposed to launch in August, but already word of mouth is making the rounds of another Android model: the Droid 2 model that is set to release within the next month. Verizon seems to have really stepped on the gas this time to combat the sales against the ‘Apple’ and the Blackberries. August 23rd would also see another launch: the outing of the Android 2.2 Froyo. This software will be loaded on to the device for the first time. Though it won’t be part of the Unlocked Droid ( X )launch, it will be definitely incorporated in the Droid 2 models. So all you Droid fans out there who had been sulking for some time: that there hadn’t been a major upgrade to any of the models, here is news for you.



    Some of you might not like the fact that the lighter version of the Unlocked Motorola (Blur) is also being launched with the model. If you feel that it’s not your style to ‘slide’ out the long droid manual keyboard then nifty provides you with the touch screen ‘SWYPE’ keyboard at your service. The Blockbuster service that provides continuous influx of latest movies is made available using DLNA.


    The Motorola Unlocked cell phone is packing quite a punch into their last model that is set on release right after the Droid X model. There is going to be a 1 GHz processor along with many other changes, some of which has been discussed above.

  • Rogers has recently announced that they will be coming out with support for the new very oddly shaped device, released from the house of Motorola on the Android platform. This has been accompanied with another phone which is the BlackBerry Curve 9300 which is not much of a developed version of the 8520. The Unlocked BlackBerry Curve 9300 has been given the additional feature of 3G which was not there in the previous mobile phone. Rogers has joined Bell in the market when it comes to the release of the BlackBerry 9300. Both of these are pretty awaited releases and hence we believe that it will be received with much excitement among the users in the country.


    The Motorola Unlocked (Flipout) will be released for the first time in North America with this release although the verdict is still to come out on this handset. Though oddly shaped, this mobile phone packs the Android 2.1 and is surely a phone which the new buyers can consider but for themoreexperienced; it is an option which is not really pretty favorable due to its really awkward shape and the swivel design which we are not big fans of. The release of this phone was announced as far back as the month of June. In terms of the features, it gives you the happenings and messages set of widgets which you can use to get all the information from your social networking profile. There are also other features like the screen customization and data manager which allows you to manage your screen arrangement and data usage respectively. In terms of the phone, we are not really impressed with the BlackBerry but we feel that it is natural that Bell went for this as it did not carry the 8530. The Motorola Flipout is available for $29.99 for a three year contract and BlackBerry Unlocked Curve 9300 is available for $79.99 on a similar contract.

  • A new application program called Huddle came into existence that helps the Blackberry Unlocked handset users to extend their space or area of work. It is actually targeted towards SMBs possessing a particular workflow which they wish to manage. Especially workers who need to move around a lot use this. This application of hurdle actually includes a natural flux of routine tasks, brainstorming and easy access to data and files. A web oriented dashboard is the actual place where the magic occurs. This application is very flexible and user friendly in nature. Hurdle it seems is going to be quite efficient and promising in an enterprise. The free version of Hurdle that is available for Blackberry offers a number of facilities. But this free version prevents one from participating in discussions, marking the status of a particular task and file uploading. One needs to install $5.99 premium version for all these functions. Apart from this one also needs to sign up for the subscription service whose price ranges from $8 to $200 and more each month depending on the various scale and various facilities provided.

    Huddle is specifically devised application for Blackberry cell phone itself. It is fast and efficient assisting a person to carry out various tasks at a time. This application apart from providing streamlined collaboration also helps users to receive work alerts along with the updates made in the work field. One can also go through the contact details of the team with which he is working. This application is capable of marking tasks as complete and half done or incomplete. One can also create a discussion and take part in it simultaneously.  The Hurdle devised for the Blackberry users provides the facilities of Microsoft word, PowerPoint presentation,  downloading PDF files and also Microsoft excel all at one go. Hence Hurdle is an application that is effectively devised for managing tasks in an office.

  • We had got initial reports from our trusted sources that the Unlocked BlackBerry Curve 9300 3G will be soon releasing on the Bell networks for the customers. Although these were initial reports, and we did not have any confirmation on them, now we have the official statement from the company’s side that they will actually be coming out with this somewhat minimally updated version of the earlier 8500 series. This phone has been given the code name Kepler and as said earlier does not have much of an upgrade as compared to the earlier version of this line. In fact, it has the exact same camera, the screen and the memory structure along with the platform is the same. In fact the similarity of this device is that much that the 3G on this is almost exact as that of the CDMA 8530 but this one is a GSM phone.  In this light, we see Bell or even Telus’s decision to carry the newly released GSM version of a handset whose close CDMA alternate is already there on their roster. In terms of the platform, the company has said that this phone is actually too close to its release such that the OS 6.0 can be accommodated on this phone.


    In this light, we have heard from our sources that other carriers like Vodafone, Verizon and even T-Mobile are also going to take this phone up also. We cannot say how it will do in the market as it honestly does not have anything new to offer in the market. This phone will soon be available for the Bell customers in Canada also. We however are still completely confused about why one would want to release this phone as it has the same QVGA display, OS 5 and a paltry 256 MB RAM.
