  • Barnes And Noble Announces New Version of NookBarnes and Noble has announced the newest version of their popular Nook device, and to say that the device is a serious upgrade over the previous version of the eBook reader is a huge understatement. The new version of the device will completely replace the previous version now that it is released. The device has also now received a touch screen, which was not previously available for the device. It will have an on screen keyboard which will make it convenient for you to look up different words or to take notes on what you are reading as you read it, which is a huge feature for the NOOK.


     


    It will only have one button, while its competitor, the Kindle has nearly 40 buttons in all, which should make it fairly easy for new users to use. It will also have double the battery life over the recently released version of the Kindle. There will also be a number of other features that will take it up to the next level including a much better page transitioning process that won’t be so hard on the eyes or hard to understand for some users - which was one of the biggest issues with the original version of the software.

    The device will also have a Wi-Fi connection and will allow users to use the device in conjunction with their social networks. To start, the device will allow users to make book recommendations on their social networks to friends that might be interested in it. It can also connect to Facebook and allow users to share information through Facebook as well. The new eReader is one that will be enjoyed by those that have a hard time using the tough interfaces that are found on the Kindle and will also provide new features that have been asked for by those that use the device. The NOOK is truly the next step in the eReader evolution for the company and it is good to see that they addressed some of the main problems that were reported with the device previously.

  • Barnes and Noble Adds New Features to Nook ShopA number of new updates have been added to the Nook app from Barnes and Noble that allows users to purchase a wide range of new items. Includes in the new items is access to a number of newspapers and magazines. Users that have tablets that are at least seven inches and have a resolution of 800 x 400 and are utilizing the Android Os 2.1 or higher. There are a number of tablets that this will include, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab and newer iterations of the device, the XOOM and the G-Slate.


    Barnes and Noble Adds New Features to Nook Shop


    As of right now there are more than 120 magazines in total. A number of other magazines are expected to be included at some point in the near future. Included in the update are huge names such as Esquire, Rolling Stone, USA Today, The Washington Post and the Chicago Tribune.


     


    Users will be able to access the content that these magazines provide with a free 14 day trial. After that, they will be expected to take out a subscription. The option is also there for them to take purchase each of the items individually as well, which should allow for users to get a better idea of what magazines they like, and which magazines are worth it for them to subscribe to.


    Barnes and Noble Adds New Features to Nook Shop


    Although there are only 120 magazines taking part right now, you can bet that this is an area of their business that Barnes and Noble are looking to expand. The app has been a huge success thus far, and these updates will only make it more popular. The app update is already available through the Android users such as Motorola Atrix Unlocked, HTC Desire, etc. that have purchased the app.


     


    It will be interesting to see what kind of response that the app receives following this update. Previously only books were available through the Nook Shop app, but Barnes and Noble has shown that they are interested in moving to other types of media as well.

  • Google Search App Gets New Toolbar
    Posted on March 20, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Google is always trying to find ways to innovate their apps and make them more user friendly. Now, instead of having to navigate through their text links on their website, they have updated their app to include a side bar that will give you access to all of the popular Google sub domains that help you to strengthen your searching capabilities.



    The new sidebar for the app looks very much like the sidebar that you see on your Unlocked Sony Ericsson Xperia X10a when you make a search in your browser on your desktop on Google. You can easily navigate between “everything,” which will show you images, news, blogs, videos, and websites all on the same search yield. The sidebar also allows you to narrow your search down to precisely what you are looking for. This means that if you are specifically searching for an image or a video, you can easily select the option on the sidebar, just as you would do on their website, normally, and have your searches filtered.



    This added functionality should make many users happy. The company also released a video demonstration of their app update. The update, as of right now is only being rolled out on iOS devices, but expect it to become available for all mobile OS at some point in the near future.


     


    some have stated that the side bar takes up too much of the screen, but Google addressed this by allowing you to slide the search results screen over the sidebar when you are sifting through the search results. This should make the entire app much more easily navigable, and the added functionality is something that Unlocked Samsung Nexus S Google users have been waiting for for quite some time. Before, you had to work your way through their text links as you would on the normal Google homepage to narrow down your search results. This was cumbersome, and many users found it to not be worth their time in the long run.

  • Google has always done a very good job of getting their users to upgrade to new versions when upgrades are available. That, plus the fact that newer devices are running on updated versions of the Android software means that more than 60% of their users are running on Android 2.2 or higher such as unlocked Samsung Nexus S Google Black. In fact. A vast majority of their users are either running 2.3, or 2.3 which seems to be the most popular option for new smart devices that have come out in recent months.


    Most devices are currently being upgraded to either 2.2 or 2.3, and with version 3.0, Gingerbread right around the corner you can exact many new devices to be released for that version of the operating system as well. Android 1.6 still has 4.8% of the user base, while Android 1.5 still has 3% of the total user base.


    Google also announced in a recent press release that they are activating more than 300,000 new phones per day. A number of these devices will be making their way to the Canadian market here soon, and users can expect these devices to run on Android 2.2 or higher when the release time comes.


    This just goes to show how adept Google has become and getting their users to upgrade to new versions when the upgrade is available for all of the new features offered. Comparatively,Apple updates have done well as well such as in unlocked iphone 4, but have not seen the same level of success that Google has seen. There are going to be many new devices coming out in the future that are highly anticipated, running on Google Android 2.2 or higher, so expect these numbers to continue to climb here in the future as well.

  • Firefox 4 Beta Released for Android
    Posted on February 3, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Are you a fan of the Firefox browser on Android devices? If so, then you might be interested in giving test driving the fourth version of Firefox for Android machines such as HTC Desire unlocked, Samsung Captivate i897, etc. Keep in mind that Firefox may not be the most popular - or most stable browser for the devices, but it has managed to garner a huge following that swear by it.



    Mozilla knows that the data networks bottlenecking and adding extra seconds onto loading time is a big deal for most consumers who have grown accustomed to instant gratification when searching the web. They have toned down on the heaviness of their previous Firefox releases with Firefox 4, and have made the newest release completely about an increase in speed. They claim that the newest build of the browser will allow you to surf the web over three times faster than it did before. This information was obtained using the Kraken Javascript Benchmark, which is actually built by Mozilla so the results might be a little skewed, but it is good to see that Mozilla is focusing mostly on speed in the same way that Chrome did when it first came out.


    In the SunSpider test, which is a more popular platform that is not designed by Mozilla, Firefox 4 tends to be about twice as fast as the previous versions. Of course, you probably won’t notice the split second difference unless you are using Firefox 4 during heavily trafficked times of the day.



    Mozilla has also passed a total of 100 add on for mobile devices, which exponentially increases the feature list of the browser. Bringing their famous add-ons to their mobile browser is something that has attracted many of their desktop users that missed the functionality that they were used to having on their desktops. Some of these add ons include Ad Block Plus and User Agent Switcher, both of which are already stable and are running without any major issues according to tests and user reports thus far.

  • 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.

  • Motorola MOTOPAD – Android 3.0
    Posted on November 17, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    According to a leading cell phone mobile blog, Motorola has been chosen to show their upcoming tablet friendly version of Google’s OS.  This is much like when Motorola helped Google acquire Android 2.0 with the unlocked Motorola Milestone Droid.  Now it is pretty much in charge with the same task.


    There have not been a lot of details to go along with this recent newsworthy story, but it was released that Motorola’s upcoming Android 3.0 tablet will be 7 inches.  This will not be much to get people excited about, but it certainly is a sneak peak about things to come.  It should be interesting to see how everything unfolds with this story.  I am sure that more information will be released about Motorola showcasing their version of Google’s OS.  There has not even been a date given when this will happen yet.  A lot of people assume that there should be some type of meeting with all of this news with other releases that take place.  When we hear about when it will take place, we will make sure to let you know to give you a heads up about it.  There really are not a whole lot of details about this yet since it is fairly new.  Obviously, there will not be a ton of details.  That is just a given – common sense.



    All we know right now is that Google specifically chose MOTOPAD as the first device to show Android 3.0, and that the device will be 7 inches.  So yeah, this may not be the most thrilling news, but it does give you even more reason to keep your ears open about more news to come.  I am sure that there will be some type of meeting given where people can show up and watch the showcase of this happening.

  • Swype Makes Texting Easier
    Posted on November 17, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    In today’s generation, texting is a must to fit in.  Everyone is doing it; if you are walking on your college campus, you will see students heads looking down tapping their buttons at a fast pace.  Most see this as a sad thing, but it is really the best way to keep in touch with your friends these days.  Plus, most people see it as being a lot more convenient than calling someone.  I’ll stop beating around the bush and get to the point.  The Swype keyboard for Android phone such as Unlocked Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, LG Eve,  makes texting even easier.



    Here are some of the advantages of having the swipe keyboard.  The first advantage is that you can tell the phone what to type.  Yes, it really is that easy.  Instead of having to type out some long paragraph about what happened in your day, you can just talk to it and it will automatically type what you put.  This has been reported to not always be accurate, and you will have to speak really clearly.  For the most part, it is pretty accurate though. To do this, you will also need to have Google Voice Search installed onto your phone.  Another great feature about this phone is if you want to check for spelling errors, then you can just double tap on the screen, and it will find any errors that you made.  This certainly makes it easier than having to scroll all the way back to the beginning of your text to fix any errors.  Not only that, but you will not have to delete any of your letters and make the corrections.  It does it automatically.


    As you can see, Swype has tons of advantages.  You can definitely see why it has gotten all of the hype, and you should consider getting it.  It only makes texting easier.

  • Google's popular Google Maps service is under fire.  While many appreciate the service because they can view actual images of areas they are traveling to, the Street View cars are said to have come across very sensitive personal data that if used, could leave the population at risk.  These Google Maps applications are available for use on all Google Android phones.  While some believe this security breach should be charged with hefty fines for unlawful acts, the Federal Trade Commission feels differently.  After Google admitted they did accidentally steal passwords, emails and personal information of Google Android unlocked cell phones users, the FTC chose to drop the matter and not to issue any exorbitant fines.




    The stolen data Google came across has been investigated by the FTC.  Earlier in the week, Google did confirm that their Street View cars used to capture images for their popular Google Maps service did come across passwords and sensitive information.  This public breach of security was completely unintentional and after a serious investigation, the FTC did not find reason to fine Google for this unintentional and unlawful act.  Google has made promises to the FTC that all data that was inadvertently stolen will be destroyed and will not be used in any way.  Because Google has made written assurances, they will not use the sensitive data now or in the future; the FTC has closed the investigation.



    With the commitments made to the FTC, Google is said to have dodged a bullet that could have significantly affected their earnings for 2010.  While the Street View car debacle was completely by accident, some consumers are still concerned their information may be at risk.  With the inquiry being closed, consumers can rest assured that all sensitive data obtained will be safe and they have nothing to worry about.

  • In July, a project manager for the Android revealed that Google was planning on launching a music store during the release of the Android 3.0. Since then, more details have come about regarding this new unlocked cell phone. Basically, it has undergone significant UI retooling, which helps improve the phone’s appearance.  The interface is also more user-friendly, as there will be new notification bars, icons and scrolling effects.  When all these changes are put together, users will have an easier time navigating through their cell phone.  Such improvement will be a godsend, especially considering the amount of Google apps that will be provided with the phone. With easier navigation, these programs become more accessible--even for novice Android users.
    Video chat and VOIP calling are two additional features that will be available with the Android 3.0 cell phone. The video chat will be incorporated into the phone’s operating system. It may also be integrated with FaceTime, though previous failures with video chat makes this an uncertainty (as Google may not want to take the risk). The company does not feel this way about VOIP. In fact, they plan on integrating the technology into their Google Voice service. If this can be successfully implemented, Android users could make cell phone calls at a significantly reduced cost. Depending on the carrier, some calls might even be free. The same would also be true for Android tablets. With VOIP technology, they could make phone calls without having to rely on cellular connections. Again, for users this means less money has to be paid out.
    In conclusion, the Android 3.0 looks quite promising. The improved graphics as well as the video chat and VOIP integration puts the phone a step ahead of its competition. Fans might have even more to look forward to as the phone nears its release date.
