     Wi-Fi Alliance ‘s Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Passpoint program Will allow mobile devices to automatically connect to WiFi networks


    Someone is out there trying to make our wireless access a lot easier without charging us an arm and a leg for the privilege (or over-complicating the system.)  The WiFi Alliance just announced hardware testing of its WiFi-CERTIFIED Passpoint program. The program is designed to allow cell phones like the iPhone 4S , Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X and the Motoluxe  and tablets such as the iPad3, Samsung Tab, HTC Jetstream, HTC Flyer and the Motorola Xoom to automatically find and connect to compatible networks in the area.


    The WiFi Alliance’s primary intention is to certify hotspots. The specification it’s using is the result of cooperation between service providers and equipment manufacturers, with the aim of creating an industry-wide solution for shared WiFi access and roaming agreements.


    Hardware manufactures like Cisco, Intel, MediaTek and Qualcomm have already received Passpoint certification. Once the hardware testing is complete, it will be up to the service providers to show a little spirit of cooperation.

    Android texting application Swype has been in the design phase for awhile, but its beta shows it has evolved into a sophisticated next-generation app with four-in-one keyboard and voice capabilities.


    Swype’s four keyboard choices and 55 language downloads


    Chief among the app's redesign is the option of using one of four kinds of keyboards:  traditional letter-to-letter swiping, while adding the ability to type with predictive text input, use an integrated Dragon button to speak the text, or rely on the old peck-and-hunt one-finger motion. Users can swap between any of the modes limitlessly.


    Swype’s new features also include next-word prediction that allows the app to build on historical usage, compiling every word a user enters in emails, texts, or other posts. Swype's 55 language downloads allow users to communicate in any language they can speak.  Swype can be installed on all Android based cell phones including the Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S2 as well as HTC One X and Motorola Droid Razr 


    According to Michael Thompson, EVP and general manager for Nuance Mobile (the speech-recognition software building company that acquired Swype last October), "People use their keyboards every day in every way — so input needs to be fast and simple. The new Swype living, learning keyboard users in a new era of input, where the keyboard adapts to the user's unique way of communicating every time they swype, speak, tap, or write."


    The Swype Beta for Android is available for download via beta.swype.com. There's also an SDK for other operating systems.

    The founder of one of Europe’s leading illegal movie-streaming sites confessed and apologized for his crimes and got his sentence cut in half by a German judge.  Deutsche Welle reported that 39-year-old Kino.to founder “Dirk B.” has been sentenced to 4.5 years in jail. He could have been ordered to spend 11 years in prison, but received a reduced sentence after confessing to his copyright infringement crimes.


    Jail time and fines for Kino.to founder


    Millions of eager viewers downloaded movies and watched them on the latest smartphones including the iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy2, HTC EVO 


    Many viewers also used tablets like the New iPad/iPad 3, Samsung Tab, Motorola Xoom and the HTC Flyer 


    Dirk B. will have to pay a $4.7 million fine to cover 1.1 million instances of copyright infringement. While in operation, Kino.to is estimated to have brought in as much as $8 million in advertising revenue.


    Most recently, law enforcement officials in Sweden first raided The Pirate Bay in 2006, and the company’s founders were eventually sentenced to jail and forced to pay millions in fines. The service remained online, however, and it is still operational today.   “The Swedish district attorney Fredrik Ingblad initiated a new investigation into The Pirate Bay back in 2010. Information has been leaked to us every now and then by multiple sources, almost on a regular basis. It’s an interesting read,” The Pirate Bay said on its blog. “We can certainly understand why WikiLeaks wished to be hosted in Sweden, since so much data leaks there. The reason that we get the leaks is usually that the whistleblowers do not agree with what is going on. Something that the governments should have in mind – even your own people do not agree.”

    Apple’s request for a court order to block the sale of Samsung’s Galaxy S3 smartphones in the US has been denied by U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California.


    Apple fails to block Galaxy S3 sales in the US


    Apple wanted a court order which would have prevented the June 21st market launch of Samsung’s latest flagship device. Reuters reported that the judge claimed the case would overload her calendar - she is overseeing Apple’s high-stakes trial against Samsung that is schedule to begin in July.


    Apple isn’t getting anywhere with its aggressive legal strategy. Koh’s decision comes shortly after a federal judge tossed out Apple’s upcoming case against Google’s Motorola Mobility.


    In its attempt to limit growth of Android, Apple has waged an international patent war since 2010. Last year, Google’s Android became the world's best-selling mobile operating platform. Apple's opponents say the iPhone 4S maker is trying to use patents to dominate the market.

     HTC CEO refuses to produce cheap cell phones As a means to energize sales


    HTC refuses to offer cheaper handsets just to boost sales.  Despite struggling to match the sales numbers of its competitors, the company is sticking to its strategy of producing only medium- to high-end handsets.


    HTC CEO Peter Chou defended the company’s strategy in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. “We don’t want to destroy our brand image. We insist on using better materials to make better products that offer premium experience. Many consumers like that.”


    Chou’s comments come at a time when many industry watchers are beginning to question HTC’s strategy. Motorola and Samsung are capturing the low-end handset market in the Chinese market, but Chao insists that HTC will not manufacture “cheap, cheap phones” to boost its market share.


    HTC will increase its marketing efforts and expand its distribution network into emerging markets. Chou expects that 2012 Chinese shipments will reach three times last year’s total. Shipments to India and other emerging markets are steadily growing. Chou is adamant, “We think our strategy is successful.”

    Games aren’t new territory for Facebook. The site is filled with social and casual games like AngryBirds and FarmVille. While Facebook followers have made these games incredibly popular, there haven’t been any titles to attract the hardcore gaming crowd. With the release of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Commander, Ubisoft wants to change that.

    According to a recent blog post from Motorola, the company will limit ICS updates to just the handsets it believes will benefit from the change.  For example, the Droid 3, Droid Pro and Milestone 3 will remain on Android 2.3 (a.k.a. Gingerbread), while some phones will keep versions of Android as far back as Android 1.5 and 2.1. Is your Motorola phone getting the Android 4.0 update?


    Discover the latest innovative protection solutions for Motorola cell phones ... stylish top brand bags, sleeves as well as cases and skins specifically designed to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    Here is the explanation in Motorola’s words: “You may be wondering why all devices aren’t being upgraded to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). Here’s the deal. We work very closely with Google and cell phone carriers for every software update. And, obviously we want the new release to improve our devices. If we determine that can’t be done—well then, we’re not able to upgrade that particular device.”


    To date, the only device that has received its update to Android 4.0 is the WiFi-only XOOM (and only the US and Canadian versions). All other devices remain in one of their four stages: development, test in-house, carrier test and release. (A beta field test may also be inserted between stages 3 and 4.)


    Is your Motorola phone getting the Android 4.0 update?


    Motorola has probably been the most candid and thorough device manufacturer when it comes to Android upgrade plans. Motorola has been good about maintaining their device update page found in their forums. Here is a summary of their ICS roll-out plans as of this month:


    Android 4.0 update Q2 2012


    Motorola XOOM WiFi-Only (Asia Pacific, China, EMEA, Japan & LATAM)


    Motorola XOOM (Verizon)


    Motorola RAZR (Asia Pacific, Canada, China, EMEA, Japan, Korea & LATAM)


    Motorola DROID RAZR (Verizon)


    Motorola DROID RAZR Maxx (Verizon)


    Motorola MT917 (China)


    Motorola XT928 (China)


    Android 4.0 update Q3 2012


    Motorola Atrix 4G (USA)


    Motorola Atrix 2 (Asia-Pacific, LATAM, USA, and selected other markets)


    Motorola XOOM Family Edition (USA)


    Motorola XOOM 2 (Asia Pacific, EMEA, and LATAM)


    Motorola XOOM 2 Media Edition (Asia Pacific, EMEA, and LATAM)


    Motorola Xyboard 8.2 (USA)


    Motorola Xyboard 10.1 (USA)


    Motorola DROID Bionic (Verizon)


    Motorola DROID 4 (Verizon)


    Motorola DROID Xyboard 8.2 (Verizon)


    Motorola DROID Xyboard 10.1 (Verizon)


    Android 4.0 update Q4 2012


    Motorola Photon 4G (USA)


    Devices that have no assigned dates (and no update guarantees)


    Motorola Atrix/Atrix 4G (Asia Pacific, EMEA and LATAM)


    Motorola Electrify (USA)


    Motorola Photon 4G (Japan)


    Motorola XOOM WiFi + 3G (Asia Pacific, EMEA and LATAM)


    Motorola devices that will NOT get updated to Android 4.0


    Motorola Admiral


    Motorola Charm


    Motorola DROID 3


    Motorola DROID X2


    Motorola Flipout


    Motorola Milestone A854/A953


    Motorola Milestone XT720/XT701/XT711


    Motorola XT605


    Motorola XT615 / XT685 / MOTOLUXE


    Motorola XT882


    Motorola MT870


    Motorola Milestone 3


    Motorola Milestone X2


    Motorola Pro+


    Motorola Devour


    Motorola Cliq XT


    Motorola i1


    Motorola Dext


    Motorola Quench MB501/XT5 XT502/XT3 XT502


    Motorola Defy Mini


    Motorola Defy MB525 (Europe & MEA) 


    How much the Google buyout of Motorola will affect the release schedule is anyone’s guess. Google is very good at raising the bar, so we hope they lay some Google ambition on Motorola’s organization.


    Keep up the good performance of Motorola’s line up of smartphones with device protection accessories like sleeves, cases, and skins. Keep them charged and ready to carry out their duties with desktop chargers, wall chargersand car chargers at prices that will prove you can afford more than you think.
