Moshi for iPad
  • Twitter iPhone update
    Posted on March 11, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    You might have noticed that the official Twitter app received an update for unlocked iphone 4. The new update will not add any huge features as was seen in previous versions of the app, but it does look as if the quick bar tht was added will be a bit helpful. The “quick bar” was added to give you the currently trending topics based on your location with just the click of the button. Some users reported that shortly after they updated their app that they were having trouble re-opening the app. These problems seemed to be a bit isolated and were not experienced across the entire user base.


    Now the version 3.3.1 is live for the first time. Most of the main upgrades that were included in the update fixed some of the more common crashing issues that have been reported with the app. Also included in the app update were a number of security fixes. These were accompanied by some improved performance updates that should make the app much more usable and phones that do not have the heavy hardware that the top notch phones do.


     


    The total upgrade is a little bit more than six megabytes in the app store. some of the older versions of the app were also phased out with the update, but those versions were quite early so if you have updated any time recently then you have nothing to worry about.



    Users that had trouble with the update have already taken to the iphone 4 unlocked and other iOS devices and have found some fixes for the update issues. Many users choose to use a third party Twitter application instead of the main one so that might keep some from noticing the same issues.

  • As per one of the leading unlocked cell phone blog site, it is easy to see why iPad’s or other tablet devices would be solid purchases for members of parliament. Having all that power on the go would probably allow them to stay connected with their people a little bit easier. However, it was recently released that the ruling by the Board of Internal Economy (a ruling that was actually placed in November) that states that the board did not agree to allow them to purchase the iPads because of the great expense.


    Not including taxes, the iPad’s would probably cost more than $160,000 in total.  Another reason behind the decision was that the “house system is totally based on Microsoft.” The ruling suggested that perhaps the infrastructure would be different and would cause issues as well. Of course, this does not seem like that valid of an excuse given how user friendly the iPad is and has been as a whole.


    Many of the parliament members have purchased the iPad on their own dime since the ruling came down. Had they allowed members to use the iPad, they would have become the first major country to adopt the iPad on a government level as a legitimate tracking tool. It will be interesting to see how many decide to go out and buy tablet solutions on their own. It is easy to see how a purchase like this could benefit parliament members. They would probably be more likely to stay in contact with the general public and would have a device that would allow them to constantly update on progress during negotiations and share information with other members of parliament.


    Although problems regarding infrastructure were cited as the reasoning behind the decision, the cost probably had more to do with it than anything else. Thousands of dollars on devices that are not required for the job is a hard sell, especially with the economy the way that it is today.

  • The Unlocked Acer Liquid Metal is the most recent smart phone offering from Acer and has been a highly anticipated device for a good reason - it has a robust feature list that make it ideal for users that are looking to get a top of the line phone without having to pay top of the line prices. The Acer Liquid Metal is easily one of the best devices that the company has offered.


    It will utilize the Qualcomm 7230 800 MHz processor that will allow you to navigate through the phone at a lighting fast rate. Along with the great processor, the phone will use Android Froyo Version 2.2, which reportedly allows devices to browse from one screen to another nearly five times as quick. The internet features have also been upgraded, including a new browser that has the flash support that was mysteriously missing in earlier versions of the device and a Social Jogger app that allows you to easily aggregate your Facebook and Twitter fees for one streamlined feed that allows you to easily keep up with the updates from all of your friends and family.


    Along with the great additions to the surfing power of the device, it will also feature a 5 mega pixel camera (with LED flash) that will allow you to record HD video at 720p, or what translates to 30 frames per second. The Liquid Metal will also allow you to use the enhanced high resolution videos and play them straight through the device, which features an HDMI out port that makes it easy for you to play the videos that you record directly through the television.


    All in all, the Acer Liquid Metal Unlocked handset is a great offering that has stepped its game up in nearly every aspect since it was first released. The phone is constantly updating the audio technology, surfing abilities and specs that have made it one of the most highly anticipated phones on the market since it was first announced.

  • The History of the Verizon iPhone 4
    Posted on January 14, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The unlocked iPhone 4 has been long rumored to be on its way to Verizon. Of course, this took a lot longer than most expected, but now that is official we have some time to go ahead and take a look back at the history of the deal and how it finally came together. We know that both companies had discussed the move over the last few years, but because the newest iPhone’s did not live up to expectations of Verizon, there was no rush to keep the deal in place.


    The deal first came together at the end of last year and was put together by Verizon President Lowell McAdam and Apple COO Tim Cook. Both of them had worked through the specifics of the deal over the course of a few weeks leading up to it. The commercial aspect of the deal reportedly only took about one day to finalize. The biggest issue between the two companies was releasing an iPhone version that would run on the Verizon network. Apple also wanted Verizon to put some towers at the Apple HQ building so that they could monitor signal strength and also look for reliability issues. That reportedly hung up the deal for quite some time.


    As a result of the most recent deal, both of the companies have agreed to share their knowledge regarding updates with both companies so that they can better work together to bring the consumer base devices that they truly want and are looking for. Verizon will convey their network plans to Apple so that they can better suit their devices for the Verizon network, and Apple will let them know ahead of time about upcoming device plans so that Verizon can prepare as well. Verizon also had to agree to not put their logo on the iPhone 4 unlocked device when it was released. The sales are going to be through the roof, that much is known.

  • RIM Filters Porn in Indonesia
    Posted on January 14, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    After the country called for RIM to filter the adult content that was being shown to unlocked BlackBerry Phone users in Indonesia, it looks as though they are going to have to buckle and give into their demands. The company has reportedly agreed to filter pornographic content on BlackBerry’s in India as a result of the government’s request that was made. This is not the first time that the company has had to accommodate requests from the government, but is the first time that they have agreed to filter the content that is given to their users. Apparently they would rather filter the content then have the BlackBerry be banned in the country.


    They are working with the government to put the filter in place as promptly as possible, they said in a recent statement. The filtering solution will keep millions of Indonesian users from accessing the adult content. The fact that they asked Research In Motion to filter the content really shouldn’t be that much of a surprise to anyone. They first instituted an anti-pornographic material law in 2008 that filtered a lot of the internet content that was available at the time.


    RIM really had no choice and was forced to give into their demands. Indonesia has previously asked the company to move some of its servers, which are currently located in Canada, to Indonesia so that they could keep a closer eye on the content that their citizens were looking at through their mobile devices. Working with governments to filter content is an increasing trend in the mobile industry, and this is one of many deals that may come into place in the future. It will be interesting to see if other filters are put into place as well in the future in other countries. RIM has made it clear that they are willing to work with governments on the issue.

  • The unlocked LG C900 Quantam has received a fair amount of attention from the mobile community for being one of the first top of the line phones to use the Windows Phone OS 7 technology that many think will put Microsoft in the thick of the mobile industry in the coming years. The phone is one of the most solid devices for this operating system, and there are numerous reasons why it has continued to garner attention.


    The ability to record HD 720p quality fit is a crowd-drawer. The Quantam allows you to easily share these videos with your friends or through your social networking accounts. Although the phone is only equipped with a 5 mega-pixel camera, it does have zoom and auto-focus support that allow you to take high quality pictures.


    Its 1 GHz processor is more than enough to deal with all of the web browsing, app downloading and OS surfing that you will do, and the phone rarely shows any signs of lag. For those of us with XBox Live, the integration features that allow you to check your scores and gamer points are interesting, and fun to play around with.


    The Microsoft Office suite also comes included with the phone. Among the programs that are int he package are Word, Excel, PowerPoint and a calender application. This will help you to stay organized and will also allow you to work on last minute presentations when you are in a rush. It is a surprise that they have not marketed the LG C900 Quantam of more of a business phone.



    Overall, the LG C900 Quantam unlocked is solid, and is among the most highly regarded Windows Phone 7 Phones to don the highly anticipated operating system. It should be a solid competitor for other similarly priced phones, and is comfortable to hold and easily fits in most pockets.

  • The new  Unlocked Sony Ericsson U8a Vivaz Pro, a device for NextG is a phone that has not received a lot of attention from the mobile community, which is a bit surprising given the quality of the phone. The non-Pro version of the phone was a standalone touchscreen and the Pro gives users an upgrade to a QWERTY keyboard which should help in business situations. The QWERTY keyboard will allow users to more quickly communicate using the device and will speed up the social networking process.


    The Unlocked Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro, much like the previous versions of the phone wills till allow users to broadcast HD video, which was a huge selling point when the device was originally released. Users will also be able to download apps through the PlayNow marketplace as well as the Symbian Developer Community, which has grown quite a bit since the first version of the device was released.


    The shape of the device has also changed for the pro release, making it easier to comfortably hold. The shape of the phone is now specifically molded to the shape of the human hand so that it fits comfortably in the hand when you are speaking on the phone.


    The Vivaz Pro has a 3.2 inch touch screen that is completely scratch resistant and also features a 16:9 nHD touchscreen display screen. Along with the keyboard, the phone also provides users with a 5.1 megapixel camera that comes complete with up to 4x zoom and autofocus to ensure that you capture the best pictures possible. At only 117 grams in weight, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro is a light weight phone that is very phone and fits comfortably int he pocket of jeans and other casual-wear. With the U8a Vivaz Pro unlocked being Next G compatible, it is a phone that should stand the test of time and make for a solid investment for anyone who enjoyed the original version of the phone but are looking for a more professional option.

  • The unlocked Motorola Flipout has been a long-rumored phone that finally appears as if it will be coming to fruition in the United States. The first thing that you will notice about the phone is its odd shape. It is shaped like a square, and is quite small. It only has a 2.8 inch touchscreen display with a 320x240 resolution. It also features a 600 MHz CPU, which is a bit underpowered when you are running applications, and a 3 megapixel camera that also does not meet current standards for smart devices.


    The good news is that the phone does have a few upsides. The keyboard is easy to type on and is spacious for the size of the device. Of course, because the device itself is so small it might get a little bit uncomfortable if you type on it for long periods of time, but it really couldn’t be any better given the space that it has to work with. The phone is very unique, and has a rotating design that brings the keyboard out from underneath. It is also very affordable, and runs Android 2.1 well, although you might experience some problems if you have numerous apps running at the same time.


    Calling on the device is fairly uncomfortable. Its small design and square shape take you out of your element when holding it up to your ear, and I have noticed that a few of my favorite apps do not run on the device, likely because of the size of the screen. It’s lack of power in its processor and camera are also concerning, but overall, for the price at least, the Motorola Flipout unlocked gadegt is a neat little device that should hold you over until that next big release comes out. You will get a lot of questions about it, that’s for sure.

  • The Sony Playstation phone is a device that has been rumored to have been in development for a number of years now, but excited fans have not had any big announcements or reveals until recently when pictures of the alleged device made their way online. Now, fans who have anxiously awaited details regarding the Playstation phone finally have something to celebrate.


    The phone was spotted in a “secret” spy video that that made its way to the web today In the video you can see someone using the phone and it appears that they do not know that they are being filmed while they use it, although this is up to interpretation. Companies have been known to leak similar videos online to help build the hype for upcoming devices and it wouldn’t be surprising to find out that there is a similar case here as well.


    The quality of the video is fairly low so it is hard to see all of the features in crystal clear action, although a number of the rumored features have been confirmed through the video. You can see that the phone looks like any other phone device until you slide out the game pad that is used to help users control the games that will reportedly be available for the phone.


    The Playstation phone has been kept under tight wraps by Sony, but from what a number of sources have been able to surmise so far, the device will function as the next generation of the PSP and will be available on a number of different carriers if everything goes to plan. No games have been announced for the device but with videos and other details about the phone being made available online Sony should be preparing an official announcement here soon.

  • Google released some interesting figures today regarding the percentage of their users, and what version of their Android operating system that they are currently running. Stunningly, the information states that 83% of their users are currently running Android 2.2 or better, suggesting that Unlocked Motorola Milestone Android users are very likely to keep up on their updates, much more so than other platforms have previously reported.


    Along with the 83% of the users that are currently running 2.1 or better, most of their users are actually running the newest version of the software, version 2.2, which 43% of their users are running. Most mobile operating systems are not able to garner anywhere close to this number of users running the latest version of the software, especially when the updates require that the cell phone companies release their own updates for their devices. The 2.2 update was in high demand when it was first released and has received quick attention from a number of different carriers and phone developers.


    This makes it easier for Google to release updates for the their operating system, especially since they do not have to worry about huge upgrades for users that are still running on older versions of their operating system. Currently more than 10% of their user base is running Android 1.6 and 6% of their user base is currently running Android 1.5.


    The numbers are fairly surprising overall. The nature of the market will always ensure that 100% of users are not running updated software, but a total of 83% using the last two versions of Android shows that users know how to upgrade their devices and are interested in the features that have been made available by Google through recent updates.
