    Apple - HTC Saga Continues....


    By Aldo Panessidi


    Can’t we all just get along?


    In a round robin style of legal actions, the US International Trade Commission has agreed to revisit a decision made by a judge earlier this year. That particular ruling was not to the liking of Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer, HTC, as the decision cleared Apple of four patent violation accusations.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with the latest stylish top brand bag, sleeves and case accessories.


    Despite HTC’s tag line of “Quietly Brilliant,” the company has not been quiet in this technological battle of wills with Apple. And, as the first smartphone to market using Android OS technology, this corporate judicial sparring has likely been in the works for a number of years. The October ruling by an ITC judge determined that the HTC owned patents related to power management and phone dialing were not violated by Apple’s iPhone 4s, iPad 3G or iPod Touch.


    In true legal relay fashion, the ITC decision came right before a ruling on a case brought against HTC by Apple which will determine if the smartphones manufactured by HTC are the culprits in patent infringement. As the HTC claim included Apple’s tablet technology, this writer does wonder if the HTC Flyer tablet will come under scrutiny as well. Taking their claim to where it matters most, Apple is pursued an injunction which will bar the rival HTC from distributing and selling products that include patent-violating technology in the US beginning in April 2012.  Enhance your mobility... turn your device into a power tool.  Discover our the accessories, stylus & pens, SD micro cards, data cables, desktop chargers, car kits and special glider gloves specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    Can’t we all just get along? For now it looks as though Apple has won the battle. However, based on the volley of legal actions between the two companies in recent months, there will likely be more news to follow. Who knows, with the forces of Apple, HTC (and Google Android perhaps?), these lawsuits could easily start to drift into patent questions around docking stations, hands free technologies, and other consumer inspired accessories. Stay posted for the next move in the game.

  • HTC Explorer –Diamond in the Rough
    Posted on December 21, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    As the Android trend moves towards bigger screens, more “phone real estate” and the bigger-is-better design, it is refreshing to see a consistency with the smartphone manufacturer, HTC and its thoughtful inclusion of smaller footprint handset offerings including a wide HTC unlocked cell phone line of business.  The latest is a lovely mix of diminutive and rugged which has been christened Explorer. In an amalgamation that is sure to please, this is a small phone that packs the same punch as its predecessors by sporting the Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread with Sense UI 3.5.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with the latest stylish top brand bag, sleeves and case accessories.


    HTC Explorer –Diamond in the RoughHowever, the smartphone market is becoming increasingly competitive amongst manufacturers, OS developers, and carriers who are all trying to make their indelible mark on consumers by employing consumer friendly choices like unlocked phones and must have protective cases and skins accessories. So what makes HTC cell phone Explorer stand out? simple... how light and compact it is, Adobe Flash support (yay!), incredibly fast boot up times, and some seriously nice stats for its Snapragon chipset, Gingerbread OS, memory capabilities etc.  Enhance your mobility... turn your device into a power tool.  Discover our the accessories, stylus & pens, SD micro cards, data cables, desktop chargers, car kits and special glider gloves specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    For all its perks, consumers should be aware of the slow SPU, fixed focus camera, and the lack of a document viewer and secondary video call camera. What’s more, the really tangible, joy inspiring accessories are not to be found in the standard retail package. A compact charger, microUSB cable, and… that’s it. No headset even. Get uuncompromised sound quality and a revolutionary design accentuating today’s interactive lifestyle.  Earpieces and headsets combine sophisticated style and precision engineering that deliver brilliant sound for your total listening pleasure.

    Luckily customers can customize with quality Bluetooth headsets of their choice, a car charger and personality inspired cases and skins to highlight what makes their choice of phones different and unique in a smartphone world dominated by Apple and Samsung (also allows customers to choose to embrace the rubberized “tough” look of the phone or to pick from a variety of colors).


    Overalll, the Explorer is an unexpected gem in the smartphone lineup that made the most of its 600MHz processor and chipset and was also able to truly ac as a multimedia device with its easy handling of Flash content (games and video were a breeze for the Explorer). As an entry level device, it is a wonderful option that can easily be customized and decked out with your mobile accessories of choice. Keep a look out for unlocked versions and start your shopping around!

  • HTC vs Apple – Patent Showdown
    Posted on December 20, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    By Megan Fleet




    Many pro-business advocates will espouse the virtues of patents and their being upheld with patent law in the free market world. A clear comparison in the schools of thought: free market vs. controlled market is the US vs. China. The latter is known for its corporate espionage, systemic lack of creativity, and lack of respect for the rights of intellectual property. The former sometimes has the opposite problem where obscure patents and a muddy system work against entrepreneurs and fail to promote the sharing of information and technology. Strangely, the proprietary model of Apple and their inclination to sign carrier exclusive deals instead of providing carrier agnostic unlocked cell phones seems counterintuitive to this pro-business strategy they’ve pursued.


    With these polar opposites at work in the global corporate world, the HTC / Apple patent infringement case actually made me a smile a bit as it is a rare case of patent law being meted out justly and under the intent of the law. On Monday, the United States International Trade Commission ruled that as of April 19th, 2012 they will ban the import of certain HTC devices (no word on if any of these patent infringements extend to HTC specific after market phone and mobile accessories.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with stylish top brand cases and skins accessories.


    In response, HTC released this statement to BGR via email “We are gratified that the commission affirmed the judge’s determination on the ‘721 and ‘983 patents, and reversed its decision on the ‘263 patent and partially on the ‘647 patent […] We are very pleased with the determination and we respect it. However, the ‘647 patent is a small UI experience and HTC will completely remove it from all of our phones soon.”   Discover the select accessories, such as, stylus & pens, data cables, batteries, SD micro cards, desktop chargers, earpieces & headsets as well as glider gloves all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    This is a ruling that was made after the July 16th decision that determined a violation of two Apple owned patents by HTC. Luckily for the device manufacturer, it appears that they will be able to side step considerable losses in inventory, research & development, and market share by implementing the required changes before the April 2012 deadline.  The latest  trend setting fashionable bags, cases and sleeves accessories express your unique style.  Make your mobile devices stand out.  Customize your look - how cool can you be?

    As a typical profile... mobile consumers are highly socially engaged, remain continuously connected and rely more and more on their both carrier based or unlocked smartphone's features and applications on a daily basis.


    Smartphone penetration has seen a meteoric rise, spiraling from just 18% in late 2009 to 44% in October 2011.  A recent 'State of the Media: The Mobile Media Report'  conducted by Nielsen indicates that 64% of 25-34 year olds and 53% of 18-24 year olds own a snmartphone and have led in smartphone penetration compared to every other age group since 2009.  The individuals in these generation groups also understand that mobile accessories are designed to protect, personalize and enhance your mobile devices.



    Some of the more popular smrtphones include the iPhone4s, Blackberry bold 9900, Samsung Galaxy S II and the Motorola Droid Razr.   Apple is the top smartphone manufacturer by operating system with 28.6% of the market followed by Blackberry and HTC at 17% and 158% market share respectively.  Android outdistanced every other smartphone platform with an ever-growing 42.8% market share... leading Apple iOS at 28.6%, Blackberry at 17% and Windows at a paltry 5.3% market share
