  • How much would you pay for a Windows tablet that you could actually call your PC?


    Lenovo has just taken the tablet limelight away from Microsoft’s Windows Surface with their announcement of a Windows 8 tablet with an Intel mobile chip. That feature alone makes their new tablet a full-on Windows PC with a very small footprint. Lenovo named their new device the “ThinkPad Tablet 2.”


    The Tablet 2 has a 10.1-inch screen that is 0.39 of an inch thick. The device is shockingly light at just 1.3 pounds. The Tablet 2 has mini HDMI and USB 2.0 ports, a microSD card slot and stereo speakers. Options include 3G/4G connectivity, an NFC (near-field communication) chip, a fingerprint reader and a keyboard dock.


    This tablet’s most amazing feature is the Intel Clover Trail processor. Clover Trail is an Intel Atom system-on-a-chip (SoC) processor that is powerful, efficient and portable. It also doesn’t require cooling fans. This is not a Windows RT device, but a full-feature Windows PC that runs Windows 8 Pro, Microsoft Office, and all Windows 7 apps.


    The unanswered question is price. Lenovo hasn’t given any hint at what they will charge for a full-featured Windows 8 tablet. It looks like we’ll need to get closer to its late October release when both Windows 8 and the Tablet 2 will hit the market in time for the holidays.

  • In the past few months a United States Civil Rights Advocacy Group has launched a free down-loadable application for your Android Smartphone, your Apple iPhone 4S or any other Smartphone you may own to  own that allows you to secretly record police activity discreetly. The Civil Rights Advocacy Group is claiming that it will allow United States Citizens to “help boost police force accountability.” The New Jersey Branch of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) states that "Police Tape," that is now available to the public, "allows people to securely and discreetly record and store interactions with police."


    Smartphone Applications allows users to film Police Officers


    The ACLU is also claiming that the “"an essential tool for police accountability.”


    "Too often, incidents of serious misconduct go unreported because citizens don't feel that they will be believed,” said the office's executive director Deborah Jacobs.


    The Smartphone application also allows users to send the file to the ACLU for safe-keeping and analysis and even contains legal advice on the rights of citizens confronted, detained or arrested by police officers. Unlike most traditional Smartphone recording applications, the Police Tape application will disappear from your Smartphone screen minimizing the risk that the police officers will even know or have known they've been recorded.

  • Apple, app developers and hacks alike have all been frustrated by the secret to improved battery life. Well, it looks like BattSaver might be one answer.


    BattSaver is a new jailbreak tweak by xVolks, a company of iPhone hackers. BattSaver could potentially up to double the battery life of an iPhone. BattSaver identifies features in the smartphone that are draining its battery life and suppresses them.


    BattSaver concentrates on iPhone radios, i.e. Wi-Fi and cellular connections. The jailbreak tweak manages power usage when iPhone radios are enabled and disabled. Theoretically, this gives the device an increase in battery life.


    BattSaver allows users to choose one of four saving strategies:


    • Normal mode: When the iPhone is “sleeping”, BattSaver disables all radio signals. The iPhone will still check for new email every 15 minutes.
    • Aggressive mode: If Wi-Fi is connected, BattSaver disables the data connection completely. The idea here is if the phone is already Wi-Fi connected, don’t waste battery power with a data connection in-waiting.
    • Ultimate mode: This mode completely disables all radio signals. It’s almost the same as a smartphone’s Airplane Mode.
    • Custom: Allows countless configurations for BattSaver - perfect for jailbreakers.


    The BattSaver jailbreak tweak is available for download in the Cydia Store for $2.99.

  • AT&T will launch shared data plans on August 23. The new data plans will let you share data between all the mobile devices you and your family use, eliminating the need for separate plans for each device.


    Plans are priced based upon GB usage and are available from 1GB to 20GB. Each plan requires at least one smartphone and will allow data-sharing with up to nine devices. One smartphone will receive unlimited talk and text data. An extra charge will apply for additional phones. Each plan includes tethering, and access to over 30,000 AT&T Wi-Fi hotspots.


    Don’t worry. AT&T’s Mobile Share plans won’t be mandatory for new customers.


    Watch those data overages. With the Mobile Share plans, overages will cost you $15 per GB, as opposed to the $10 per GB with a traditional plan.


    The AT&T website has set up a Mobile Share Planner tool to help you determine the right plan for you.

  • Nokia Windows 8


    Nokia has partnered with Microsoft and plans to get back into the smartphone game with the launch of Windows 8-based devices. According to a source who prefers to remain anonymous, Nokia will be making their plans public at Nokia World next month.


    Nokia officials aren’t commenting on the rumors, but Arnaud Bauduin, a Paris-based fund manager at Ofi Asset Management said on the matter, “To come back, they either need to surf on a Microsoft success in mobile or become cool again -- two complicated challenges.”


    Nokia’s Lumia devices entered the market 9 months ago, but service providers like AT&T chose not to carry them. Since many customers didn't know about the existence of the Lumia devices, this had a huge negative impact on sales.


    To improve the visibility of the phones, Nokia will be using volunteers from its U.S. staff called Nokia’s Army, to work with the salespeople at the major carriers. Nokia’s Army will focus on educating the sales staff and customers about the Lumia alternative.


    Nokia believes that timing of the launch of their new Windows 8-based devices is key. They plan to have their smartphones on the store shelves ahead of Apple’s expected Sept. 12 unveiling of the new iPhone. 


    Nokia has a lot of ground to make up. Their U.S. market share is at approximately 2% as Q2 this year. In 2001, it peaked at 32 percent.

  • Women Falls in Sewer for Cellphone
    Posted on August 6, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    A 46 year old Jackson, Mississippi woman got stuck in a sewer on June 21, 2012 while attempting to get a smartphone back that she had accidentally dropped into the sewer. The woman fell in the sewer at the corner of Watson and Piney Woods Streets, just off of Martin Luther King Drive. Lori McElroy of 1312 Piney Woods Street was talking on a cell phone, when she accidentally dropped her iPhone 4S into a sewer. She was accidentally stuck in the sewer drainage system as she attempted to get the cell phone she dropped down the drainage system.



    The fire department was called and had to use the Jaws of Life to get her out. The woman was rather embarrassed but thankfully unhurt and unharmed. "I was on the phone talking with somebody and then I dropped the Apple iPhone 4S in the sewer" said McElroy."There wasn't any water in it, so I figured I could go down there and get it. Then I got stuck and couldn't get out."


    She continues on by saying, “"And then they had to call the fire department and the ambulance. I feel wonderful that I am out, but it was a stupid mistake. It's better to just go buy another phone instead of having to go through that." She said that a "phone isn't worth it" and if this happens to you, "just go buy a new one."

  • Who needs a professional camera with a telephoto lens when you have an Apple iPhone 4S? Photojournalist Dan Chung is showing the world just what Apple’s soon-to-be upstaged iPhone 4S can do by live blogging the pomp, circumstance and excitement of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London using that amazing little camera phone.


    Chung is keeping a photoblog entirely made up of pictures taken with his iPhone, showing the action on the field, in the pools and in the stands. Using the camera in the iPhone 4S, a clip-on Schneider lens, some Canon binoculars and the Snapseed processing app, Chung is capturing everything that makes the Olympics such a special event.


    It looks like the iPhone 4S has found an unlikely home in the world of sports photography. We wonder what Chung would have been able to do with an iPhone 5. How about the Superbowl next year, Dan?

  • Samsung's Space Odyssey in court
    Posted on August 2, 2012 by kduggan


    Apple and Samsung are getting even pettier with their patent war, and the judge is getting fed up with it.


    Judge Lucy Koh took advantage of a day off from listening to the two in court to issue rulings that re-define the boundaries around Samsung’s arguments that they didn’t infringe on Apple’s iPad design or that Apple didn't have the rights to the design in the first place.


    Samsung appears to have crossed the line with their argument that Apple lifted it from the movie “2001: A Space Odyssey.” In a scene from the 1968 film, astronauts are eating and using personal tablet computers. Samsung argues that Apple got the idea for the iPad from that scene.


    According to Samsung, the tablet in the movie “has an overall rectangular shape with a dominant display screen, narrow borders, a predominately flat front surface, a flat back surface (which is evident because the tablets are lying flat on the table’s surface), and a thin form factor.” That describes an iPad alright.


    Samsung responded to Judge Koh’s statements with a press release that said, “Samsung was not allowed to tell the jury the full story and show the pre-iPhone design for that and other phones that were in development at Samsung in 2006, before the iPhone. The excluded evidence would have established beyond doubt that Samsung did not copy the iPhone design”.


    Apple and Samsung are back in court today. We’ll see whether they’re paying any attention to Judge Lucy, and are ready to get back to the point.
