  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • OtterBox Defender 'Punk' Case for iPhone 5 in Green

     


    Happy Friday, folks!


    After staring our 'Mobile Accessory of the Week' feature on the Pure Mobile blog last week, we're back with another great accessory review. Last week it was all about toys, with an iPhone-controlled monster truck that we'll admit is more fun than practical.


    But this week, we're getting into the real essentials, with the only thing that stands between you and a busted iPhone – a good case.


    One of the top picks for iPhone protection, OtterBox has mastered the balance between rugged and cool, with their Defender line of ultra-resistent but design-conscious cases for iPhone 4, 4S and 5.


    OtterBox Defender Case for iPhone 5 in Pink Realtree Camo

     


    With a three-layer design that combines hard-shell and silicone layers with a built-in screen protector, OtterBox's Defender Case gives you the best of both worlds – the durability of a hard case and the shock absorption of a soft case.


    And though the Defender case acts like a bullet-proof vest for your iPhone, it certainly doesn't have to look like one. OtterBox has been clever enough to offer looks for all tastes.


    There's the sporty, modern look of the 'Punk' model for iPhone 5, which features solid colors in high contrast, as well as the more feminine iPhone 5 model in Pink Realtree Camo, which is kind of like the Powerpuff Girls of iPhone 5 cases – cute and sweet but mega tough.


    OtterBox Defender Case for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S in Black Realtree Camo

     


    Sometimes, OtterBox's choice of design even goes beyond looks. The company itself has recommended their Realtree Camo Defender case for iPhone 4 and 4S as an accessory for hunters, promising "we've got the protection that withstands the punishment you endure."


    Sounds pretty legit.

  • "Yeah, keep your eyes on the road, your hands upon the wheel." – The Doors, 'Roadhouse Blues'


    Is there anything so sweet as a good, old-fashioned road trip?


    Traveling by car has been an American institution practically forever, a rite of passage that every young person has to go through. Good tunes, a road map, and all the time in the world – that much hasn't changed.


    But what has changed is that nowadays, we've got our music, maps and more all in the same place. Let's face it, smartphones are now a part of that tradition of hitting the open road and looking for adventure.


    And Pure Mobile is rounding up the must-have mobile accessories that'll make your road trip that much easier – nevermind safer – with some of our favorite essentials for long car rides.


    1: Car Chargers


    Moshi Revolt Car Charger for iPhone, iPad and iPod

    No matter what, every road tripper with a smartphone needs a car charger. Even if you're resting between stops, we wouldn't count on waiting for the hotel or motel to charge your device.


    In fact, once you get to a rest stop, a dead phone battery isn't such a big deal anyway. It's losing power when you're on the road that's an issue, especially if you get lost.


    If you're planning on taking multiple devices, Moshi makes a great car charger that works across al iDevices – iPhone, iPad and iPod alike.


    And if you're traveling with buddies, a universal phone charger, like Dexim's Twin USB Car Charger, will let you charge any kind of phone, from BlackBerry to Android to iPhone. It's even got two ports, so you can charge two devices at the same time.


    2. Car Holder/Mount


    Griffin In-Car Window Mount for Smartphone or MP3 Player

    Back in the day, your dad had your mom to distractingly flap a road map in his face. Nowadays, you have a passenger who waves around their smartphone with a maps app on, or you fumble between the wheel and your own device.


    On a long trip, this kind of amateur setup just doesn't cut it, and a simple car window mount or smartphone holder will easily fix all that.


    Lots of holders, like Griffin's In-car Window Mount, will work with almost every phone model and even with MP3 players. Do your so-pilot – and yourself – a favor and get one.


    3. Bluetooth Car Kit


    One quick way to ruin a road trip? Get pulled over for using your phone while driving.


    Seriously, if you haven't got a BlueTooth car kit by now, don't you think it's about time? Plantronics and Novero both offer convenient models that'll let you navigate, talk, and listen to music hands-free.


    Considering that half the fun of going somewhere by car is the time you spend getting there, you don't really want to waste the trip fumbling with your phone when you could be rolling down the windows and taking in the sights.


    Bon voyage from Pure Mobile!

  • Our first 'Thank Gadget It's Friday' feature, Dexim's remote controlled Monster Truck for Apple devices

     


    We're making Fridays even more fun at the Pure Mobile blog, with a new weekly feature we're calling 'Thank Gadget It's Friday,' or TGIF for short.


    What better way to wrap up the week than with our favorite gadgets? And in this feature, we'll be bringing you our top picks in mobile accessories, from the coolest smartphone cases to the best phone docks and speakers.


    But we're kicking things off in style today, with an accessory that's a little out of the norm, and a whole lot of fun – Dexim's remote controlled AppSpeed Monster Truck.


    Definitely a toy for grown ups, the Dexim RC Truck uses Apple devices, like iPhone, iPad and iPod in lieu of a traditional controller. All you need is the free app that's provided when you purchase the truck.



    But that's not the only difference between this suped-up mobile accessory and a regular remote controlled car. Dexim's monster truck can be controlled by either traditional touch sensor or "gravity sensor," which lets you control the vehicle by tilting your device in different ways.


    The truck also has multiplayer mode for racing with friends, and comes with three preset stations that let you "automatically ZigZag, Spin, or Dance your vehicle to     music."


    As far as mobile accessories go, the Dexim RC Truck may not top the list of most needed, but it's certainly among the most exciting, and would certainly make a great gift for the techie in your life. Though we can think of more than a few people who'd simply want one for themselves.


    Vroom vroom!

  • Beware: bogus iPhone 5 dock is total BS
    Posted on October 28, 2012 by ewilkinson

    Seeing is not believing: beware this bogus iPhone 5 dock

     


    At Pure Mobile, top-notch mobile accessories are kind of our thing.


    So when we came across a story on Gizmodo about a bogus Chinese iPhone 5 dock that doesn't actually work, all we could think was "for shame."


    "Don't buy an iPhone 5 dock," Gizmodo warned, "because it's a Chinese scam."


    Their information comes from Double Helix Cables, where a friend actually had a hands-on experience with the fake accessory. Here's what they had to say:


    "Opening up the box and out pops this stinker. I did a double take because it looked like a prank, prop, or placeholder of some sort. The lightning plug on the dock looks like a damn piece of cardboard, if you can even call it that. Because it's a cardboard-like chunk of circuit board that supposedly is going to fit into my iPhone 5."


    The reviewer goes on to write about the the fact that dock's cutout "isn't remotely close to being iPhone 5 shaped," and then elaborates on the "home brewed lightning plug [...] which 100% doesn't fit."


    A critic of the phoney dock took major issue with its "home brewed lightning plug"

     


    This lovely critique then ends with the writer concluding that any "further effort to make this non functional dock [work] would probably damage my iPhone."


    Granted, Apple doesn't actually make a dock accessory for the iPhone 5, yet. But that's no reason for third party manufacturers to start churning out ones that simply don't work.


    Many would be more than happy to produce a suitable iPhone 5 dock that actually functions, especially if they don't have to compete with Apple itself. There are plenty of fun third party iPhone 5 gadgets out there that not only work, but work really well.


    And, in our opinion, there's no excuse for this kind of blatant BS when so many companies have been able to turn a dollar making affordable and functional iPhone accessories that consumers actually want.

    Samsung has been promoting the "Next Big Thing", and this time it’s the Galaxy Note 2. The phone was launched yesterday at Samsung's Galaxy Note II World Tour 2012 press event. T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T and Verizon will all be carrying it. Just considering cost, timing and coverage, which service provider should get your business?


    Here’s the lowdown on cost and timing:


    Verizon
    Pre-order date: Oct. 25
    Available: Nov. 27
    Price: $299.99 with a 2-year plan, $699.99 off-contract


    AT&T
    Pre-sale date: Oct. 25
    Available: Nov. 9
    Price: $299.99 with a 2-year plan, $649.99 off-contract


    Sprint
    Available: Now
    Price: $299.99 with a 2-year plan, $699.99 off-contract


    T-Mobile
    Available: Now
    Price: $369.99 with a 2-year plan, $699.99 off-contract


    The Galaxy Note 2 has 4G LTE capability, and you don’t want it to go to waste. While Verizon beats all the competition for nationwide 4G LTE coverage (370+ markets), AT&T is rapidly expanding their 4G LTE network and is adding to their network all the time (approximately 65 markets.) Sprint basically covers Atlanta and big cities in Texas (15 markets) with their 4G LTE, the rest is 3G. T-Mobile doesn’t yet have 4G LTE connectivity, but they advertise their network as “4G”, which is really a supercharged 3G (HSPA+ 42) network.


    For those buying an unlocked Galaxy Note 2, here’s a heads-up. The unlocked version isn’t compatible with CDMA carriers and LTE networks.


    There’s no doubt that the Galaxy Note 2 is a fine smartphone. Its 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display is the big reason it’s being called a “phablet” – part phone, part tablet. In a nod to its tablet-ness, the Note 2 is the only smartphone that comes with a stylus that Samsung calls the” S Pen.” For those of us with big fingers or who are touchscreen accuracy-challenged, a stylus sure comes in handy.


    Inside the Galaxy Note 2, you’ll find a quad-core 1.6GHz Exynos processor, up to 16GB of storage space (with expansion up to 64GB), and 2GB of RAM. On the back is a high-quality 8MP camera with an LED flash, and on the front a 1.9MP camera for video calls. The camera can record video in 1080p, and has a 4x zoom. It’s rated for up to 15 hours of talk time and 12.5 days of standby time.
