  • Music WithMe quite a catch
    Posted on June 28, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    With the world in its stride to make itself smarter than ever, it is a nagging feeling when you can’t just jack your phone into your PC and sync your device with iTunes as smoothly as you can with your new unlocked iPhone 4. You would have to take recourse of some kind of mass storage devices or USB mode only to have to go through the rather groveling task of manually dragging and dropping all your music into your cell phone’s SD card. The whole task is rather unnecessary, not to mention tedious and time consuming. But the whole messy out-of-date process can disappear in the bat of an eyelid with the new BlackBerry. With the new Music WithMe you can sync your BlackBerry with iTunes totally wirelessly.



    It’s $15 from BlackBerry App World, which might raise a few eyebrows but if you are tired of fidgeting around and manually synchronizing all your then you should get this application. So let’s just run a little check on what you are about to treat yourself to and what you can expect with this item.



    Using Wi-Fi or even a cellular connection, you can easily and wirelessly sync your iTunes playlists to BlackBerry. Your playlist is automatically updated and any changes made on your playlist on iTunes will directly change on your BlackBerry. On June 24, 2010 Park Vu unveiled the Music WithMe for BlackBerry Smartphones thus totally wiping away the need for a USB connection or even any kind of secondary devices. With the help of Wi-Fi or a cellular connection you can also download music files from their iTunes collection to device on the go. And once the downloading completes no more data is used thus consuming lesser battery and as a direct impact your pocket feels a tad heavier. Co-CEO of Park Vu, Terry Goertz said that they were extremely excited on the launch of Music WithMe to the smartphones and also confirmed it is the easiest way to upload your unlocked smartphone with iTunes music. Music WithMe is available at $14.99 at BlackBerry App World.

  • Do you have an Unlocked Verizon BlackBerry Storm 9550 and have suddenly been facing certain problems in regards to some BlackBerry services? If so, then you are certainly not alone as reports have shown that users of unlocked versions of Verizon’s BlackBerry Storm have had their services mysteriously disabled. While it is still not certain as to why such services have been cut off, we believe that a single group has initiated this disable. It’s anybody’s guess as to who has cut off the service, whether T-Mobile, RIM or Verizon. Although some users have been able to get some form of data transfer working over EDGE, the main problem lies with the service books, which are mainly used for communications between RIM’s servers and the carrier. The Verizon BlackBerry Storm is also fitted with a SIM card slot that can be used for roaming n any 2G networks, even though it is primarily a CDMA mobile. This clearly shows that T-Mobile is now concerned with people also buying their phones and not just their services. Any support tickets that people submit to T-Mobile are simply answered with an inadequate “not our phone, not our problem”, which frankly if you ask me is just rude.



    While such a type of blacklisting is not something that is characteristic of T-Mobile, it is similar to Verizon, which used to not allow GPS functions so that they could then only work on the subscription navigation plans of Verizon. While we are still guessing, it is possible that RIM and Verizon wanted to prevent any defectors for T-Mobile. There have been certain reports from users claiming that Verizon is not at all involved in such issues as Verizon and Vodafone are getting ‘friendly’ to the point that they are both interested in having this scenario work for them. We are still waiting for any official confirmation from T-Mobile on the issue.

    The new Twitter for BlackBerry code is set to roll out “over the course of tonight and Thursday” according to RIM’s PR team.  The requirements to run this new application include a 64 MB BlackBerry smartphone, Twitter account and an Operating System of 4.5 or higher.


    By the sounds of this update RIM has really done a number on their Twitter client.  These new features should make the lives of Twitter users much easier.

  • It had already been speculated that both Sprint and Verizon Wireless would eventually pick up RIM’s hot new BlackBerry Bold 9650 smartphone.  It appears that these speculations are starting to become facts as Sprint has recently announced that the BlackBerry Bold 9650 will be hitting store shelves on May 23rd.  Sprint customers who are clamoring over the BlackBerry device will be able to purchase this new mobile device for $199.99 after a $100 mail in rebate and 2 year contract.

    This new BlackBerry device has several great features that will be sure to tempt any BlackBerry fan.  The new Bold 9650 is set to come with a 480 x 360 resolution display, BlackBerry OS 5, WiFi module and a 3.2 megapixel camera.  With specs like these it easy to see why various networks would want to pick up this device.  It is sure to be a huge hit among many smartphone users and BlackBerry customers.

  • So it finally appears that a May release for the successor to the BlackBerry Tour 9630 is official.  An internal website where Bank of America employees can order new handsets shows the device listed as coming to Verizon in May.  In addition to a May arrival the website also confirms that this new device is set to be a member of the Bold family.  While the model number is still question it is exciting news nonetheless.  I can easily see this new device taking the model number of 9750 to keep RIM’s naming convention in order but it has been rumored that this successor device will carry the number 9650.  Since this new device is so similar to the Tour 9630 it could be sort of confusing to have two nearly identical phones using the same numbering convention within the 96xx family.

    I am really hoping that this device receives an official announcement at the upcoming WES conference.  Many BlackBerry fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of a successor to the BlackBerry Tour 9630 and deserve an official announcement along will all of the different features that this device will have.  As a BlackBerry user myself I am especially excited to see this new Tour device when it is released next month.  The BlackBerry Tour 9630 has been one of the better BlackBerry devices since its inception.  I am expecting more of the same with its successor. 


    This new device is also expected to include BlackBerry’s new push to talk application.  This new application was a recent big announcement for BlackBerry and it makes sense that it would be included with any new device that is going to hit the market.

  • 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.

  • The financial reports of wireless phone manufacturer RIM were announced today and it was pretty much good news across the board.  The company set a new record for quarterly Unlocked BlackBerry Phone activations which resulted in an increase of 4.9 million accounts which brings their current total to 41 million subscribers.  Also, annual revenue grew 35% to $15 billion versus the previous year.  The only bit of bad news was that RIM missed their quarterly revenue expectations of $4.31 billion by about $230 million.



    Co-CEO Jim Balsillie was quoted as saying that RIM is “off to a great start in fiscal 2011 and expect strong shipments, revenue, subscriber and earnings growth in Q1."  I would have to agree with his assessments and am particularly impressed with all of the new BlackBerry Unlocked Phone customers they were able to bring on board.  With all of these new customer acquisitions it is easy to see why and how annual revenue grew 35%.  While the fact that RIM did miss their current quarterly goals is a bit worrisome the overall big picture appears to be much more encouraging than this current quarter.


    Perhaps RIM’s success is a sign that the economy is finally getting back on its feet as more and more consumers are willing to spend money on upgraded their mobile devices to a BlackBerry smartphone.  It will be interesting to see if RIM reaches or exceeds their second quarter goals and continues with their upward trend for the entire year to match last year’s growth.  It can also be expected to hear some more news about these numbers at next month’s all BlackBerry all the time WES show in Orlando, FL.

  • Research in Motion buys out Viigo
    Posted on April 14, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    In recent news BlackBerry development firm Viigo has been acquired by BlackBerry maker Research In Motion. Viigo, whose self titled app is one of the most popular for BlackBerry Unlocked Phones, made the announcement Friday. Once solely a RSS reader Viigo made a big splash back in 2008 when they started introducing new features such as the ability to track sports scores, weather, movie times, stock performance, flight information and podcasts. Viigo has historically developed solely for Windows Mobile but it is unclear whether or not this will continue after the news of this announcement.



    This acquisition was a logical move for Research In Motion as Viigo is the most popular app for the BlackBerry Unlocked phones. It makes sense for them to want to purchase this company and utilize their WindowsMobile application development expertise. By bringing Viigo on board it will allow for BlackBerry to build apps that are tailored for their specific user base. Viigo will be able to develop specific applications for the BlackBerry devices that will continue to be very appealing for the BlackBerry consumer.


    Also, by purchasing application developer Viigo BlackBerry will gain more control on what types of apps are released for their mobile devices. Having the ability to create these apps in house will allow BlackBerry to build a suite of apps that their consumers are sure to enjoy and will bring rave reviews for the many BlackBerry devices. It is well known that users love the various apps that are available on today’s smartphones and being able to have one of the best application makers in house will allow BlackBerry to remain a leader in the mobile device community.
