Moshi for iPad
  • From trekking through ‘difficult’ roads to carrying out GPS navigation that is ideal, the T-mobile Garminfone searches continually for price points that are partially lower. A recent reduction in the prices had left Garmin-Asus Garminfone at a contract price of $130 .This price is even lower than before. If one visits the market for an Unlocked LG EVE Android handset, the Garminfone is the best thing one can have for $100 when bought for 2 years contract.


    There is a trick implemented by the dealers in order to be in an advantageous position as always. In order to get an extra $30 discount on $129.99 cost of the Garminfone, one has to be a T-mobile customer and has to sign a contract of 2 years with magenta. The purchaser also needs to sign the qualifying plan. A mail-in rebate of $50 is also given. Supposedly a person is presently a T-mobile user; there is a good possibility that he might receive a mail regarding this in his inbox. In T-mobile’s smartphone collection, the Garminfone is the hottest selling item. The handset of Garminfone has completely customized for your needs: the Android 1.6 user’s interface. It is recently renovated with the Android OS facility as mentioned above. Now-a-days the   magenta carrier possesses a satisfying number of smartphones with Android user that is efficiently lucrative to the customers. But if one is looking for a smartphone with GPS navigation facility and Android as well as map that are found on the phone itself, the Garminfone is the best choice one can possibly make. The GPS enabled smartphones provide navigation services in several turns and actually relies on wireless connection of data to download maps and other stuffs. On the other hand the Garminfone is a bit different from these smartphones. They do not require any special data connection and one can surf for directions and maps when ever required.

  • Very slowly yet very steadily, Blackberry has been rolling out devices one after the other all through out this year. And as they say that it is never too late, the United States is at long last going to get the promised 9130 Pearl by Blackberry. And guess who gets to claim it first? The most unlikely of options-the Cincinnati Bell. It was almost for certain after seeing the Unlocked Pearl 3G by Blackberry this year that the claim would go to one the big four carriers, but it now seems that the Cincinnati Bell will be the first one to distribute before any of these big four carriers.



    The Pearl 3G will of course set back by ninety nine dollars after the one hundred dollar rebate, which is quite a deal if you are an ardent fan and follower of the Pearl by Blackberry . The devise will obviously hit the other major carriers too. The FCC after all approved with AWS bands the sets Blackberry Unlocked  9100 and the 9105 with the AWS bands which evidently both Cincinnati Bell and the T-Mobile use. That would imply that might as well expect to get some of the T-Mobile user friendly units round about any time now. Some of the more noticeable features of the handset are the GPS system and the Wi-Fi. It also sports a display of 2.44 inch, a screen resolution of around 400x360 and a camera of 3.2 megapixels.


    So in a nut shell it is practically a Unlocked Bold 9700 with a more resolute and compact setting. The announcement of the Pearl was made initially along side with the new Bold version, the Bold 9650 this spring at the Symposium. The likes of Bell, the Telus and the Rogers have all stepped forward and have all been offered shortly afterwards. And even India, which is quite a far cry, will be privy before the United States to the phones. It is not hard to guess why this is all becoming possible. For one, it has a very smart outlook and every carrier will want their share of it.

  • We have all become quite aware of the mid air ‘adventures’ and the sudden boisterous and cocky nature of a few flight passengers. In fact, news of flirting and tweaking at the air hostess’ is well known. There had been many a complaints by the air hostess’ that they have been ill treated and misbehaved with by the passengers. Sometimes the hormonal surge of such people doesn’t even fail to venture into irritating their fellow co passengers. As always such cases have been seriously dealt with once the flight hits base. Hefty fine and short terms in prison have been the outcome of such perverted dastardly behaviour on flights, but the case which we are discussing here is completely different and quite shocking.


    While people are testing the new features, they are also pushing the limits of the smartphone to do their dirty work. Joseph Pereira, a fifty five year old veteran flight pilot for the united States Airways. On the morning of 24th June a fifteen year old girl walked onto the deck. He fancied his chance with his smartphone, testing its skills on clicking pictures of the girl in awkward positions. When the mobile was confiscated, the pictures revealed that they were taken at what looks like from under her skirt.


    And yes! You have like everyone else have guessed correctly at what he intended to do with those photos. Well he was to use his smartphones connectivity features to its optimum.


    But here lies the irony! Before this pilot joined the US Airways, he had been coaching a girls High School Softball team. And he doesn’t seem to have any kind of complaints or negative reports in his tenure of thirteen years. Well soaring heights probably makes people aim higher or as in this case aim ‘lower’.

  • Given the technological advancements in the recent years almost everything is possible. And of the many that already exists, there is still one more feather to be added to the hat. For, if you thought texting from cell phone while under water was impossible, here is an innovation that allows you to text even while inside a submarine. A buoy of length of around forty inches helps transmitting texts while you are under water. This innovation can revolutionize SMS transmitting when under water.



    The mechanism is plain and simple and easy to guess. The buoy is attached to the main body of the submarine by huge lengths of cables which if need be can be easily severed. Lockheed Martin was attributed for designing the whole system and step two would be to further improvise on the design and make it even smarter. That would imply cutting the cords and implementing a system that can resemble the working of a sonar system. Such an instrument can even be dropped from planes if need be.



    The more advantageous aspects are however that the submarine becomes less threatened or vulnerable and this new technology guarantees safety. At least it should be safer than the more traditional methods. At the present moment however, the submarine will have to elevate to almost the periscope level if it wants to communicate. The readily available communication that this system guarantees is far more prospective. Although there are many who are still skeptical about the whole idea, it seems to have promise and the idea is definitely bright. So all in all this can again turn out to be a real promising technique and particularly sailors under water would be more than happy to actually avail it. The essential parts look good, for instance the safety of those inside the submarine is increased and they can, if this is put to practical use, can keep in touch with anyone.

  • New LTE network by Verizon
    Posted on August 1, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    The United States of America should be real happy and excited now with all the prospective launches lining up. Almost five months of this year still remaining and the prospects are booming. There are a whole lot of smartphones still lined up for the launch and added to it are the new upgraded versions of the much loved Motorola milestone Unlocked Android Phone and the Windows. And to provide for the icing on the cake, Verizon is all set to launch their brand new LTE network. According to the reports of the documents that were leaked recently to Engadget, the LTE network which is slated to come to the market promises the users with a download speed that can vary between five to over eleven megabit for every second and an upload speed of over two and below five megabits for every second. It has a latency of a jaw dropping thirty milliseconds.



    All these make a lethal combination and no wonder it is highly anticipated. In comparison to the networks provided by T-Mobiles and Sprint it will have a huge and far superior advantage. This might not hit you with surprise if you have been following Verizon for it is an operator which concentrates and invests heavily in on their networking implementations rather than anything else. The costs and prices that come along side these schemes can be obscenely high but they provide for a very excellent network coverage and you end up getting good reception almost everywhere. The USB modems will be the foremost devices to launch alongside this network as is usual. LTE smartphone launch seems to be a far cry but it will come by anyway. There are some arguments as to how operators will offer voice services.


    Although the OneVoice initiative is getting backed vehemently by the industry, one can debate over their operating inside jungles and when in the wild. However the most interesting part of the whole deal is the SIM card branded by Verizon which puts in question the purity of the LTE network.

  • It has been finally announced that Nokia Siemens has indeed purchased Motorola’s network equipment division. $1.2 billion is not bad considering the fact that they will now be in quite a good position in North America to steadily grow in the market. The purchase will raise a few eyebrows as it really puts them in a really strong position.


    New York Times ran a story saying that this purchase was not a sudden decision but the conclusion of a long drawn out effort to compete against the likes of Unlocked  Ericsson phone and Huawei of China. They have been repeatedly thwarted in their effort to be able to claim a position such as this and finally they have succeeded by buying the Motorola network equipment division.


    The acquisition might prove to be a very valuable one as it gives Nokia Siemens a stronghold in the market of North America. It had failed on two auctions in the past and this acquisition ends that drought. Although, the two companies who had beaten Nokia Siemens in the past are having to pay more annual revenue than Nokia Siemens has to pay for the Motorola business. Nokia Siemens has really met tough competitors in North America but this move will hopefully be crucial for them. A separate venture might be just the perfect choice for Nokia Siemens after this purchase. The competitive market in North America is really not the place for the way to do business which is conducive to Nokia Siemens. So, a split would be advisable after they have purchased the Motorola division.



    This purchase may catapult them to new heights but they have to be cautious in the way they approach this move. They can have steady influence in the market but it has to be well planned out. Only time will tell how influential would this purchase be.

  • Steve Jobs blamed San Francisco to be too slow in advancement and says it takes up to three years to get a cell tower built in San Francisco. This might shed new light into the enigma of poor reception in San Francisco. The local Government is to be blamed instead of AT & T according to Steve Jobs. The network building problem was brought up by Steve Jobs in the recent ‘Antennagate’ conference.



    AT & T has been making numerous efforts including great investments in order to better the network but it has been futile in places like San Francisco because of lack of support from the Government. The lack of tech press in San Francisco is another reason for this particular problem going unnoticed. Although AT & T may be responsible to a certain extent in not being able to imagine the demand created by Apple Unlocked iphone 4 but according to Steve Jobs, the blame should be shouldered by the Government.


    Jobs expressed his support for AT & T saying that the company has made several moves to better the network by putting up cellular towers but if they are not allowed to do what is required then all the initiative goes to waste. There is no scope for investment if the local Governments are reluctant about all this. This is particularly strange for Jobs as he says that most people in the Government of San Francisco own an Apple iphone.


    Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski may be the ideal man to better this anomalous condition. The ‘shot clock’ method devised by him can be the best way to get the infrastructure ready in little time. This may be the last resort for cell phone carriers like AT & T to be able to improvise and invest on creating as many cell towers as possible in order to better the reception quality in places such as San Francisco.

  • It looks like it is going to be Verizon’s year considering the number of quality products it has lined up for release this year. Motorola Unlocked Droid (2), Blackberry Storm 3, Blackberry Curve 3 and 10.1-inch tablet are all set to be released by the end of this year which means that there is going to be a huge buzz surrounding Verizon this year.


    The rumors have already started with the surfacing of a few Droid 2 images. This comes fresh after rumors were doing the rounds about Droid 2 releasing along with a two blackberry devices. The images have served up the rumors to be pushed to the fact that the Droid 2 is supposed to have 5 MP camera fitted together with a 1 GHz processor. It is also believed that it will have a QWERTY keyboard and Android option. The images have all the more confirmed the fact that the Droid 2 will be launched soon, maybe even as early as August.


    A couple of Blackberry phones are also likely to be launched soon. There is talk of Blackberry Storm 3 and Unlocked Blackberry (Curve 3) being the ones. The Blackberry Storm 3 is supposed to have SurePress and will run on LTE. The Blackberry phones will have other new features which have not been clearly understood. The Blackberry Storm 3 may have OS 6, but details on this matter are not available.



    The 10.1-inch tablet can be more or less confirmed to be a rumor and there is a maximum possibility of a 7.9 or 8-inch tablet. Even that is releasing next year.


    Even if the tablet does not release this year, Verizon may be on the verge of a highly successful year with a series of much-hyped products ready for launch. It is only a matter of time before we know more about these fascinating devices.

  • We recently received great details and photographs of the Apple Game Center which will be accessible both on the iPad and unlocked iPhone4. Although this sort of online game network is not really anything new as the world has already seen Xbox Live but we feel that the Game Center definitely needs a change graphically as the preview that we have got does indeed only show the basic details of the service and indeed is nothing much in comparison to the others which are available in the market.  Not only graphically, but we also thankfully got to check out the changes also in the iOS 4.1 SDK which we do welcome. Let us look closer to the design of the Game Center.


    Graphics on the opening log in screen is much better than what it used to be and the look is far more inviting than before. As was the case before, you can get your account created and sign in from this page directly which will redirect you to the “Me” page which gives you the account details. Here you can change your status and shuffle through your friends lists as well as the games and requests that you have pending. Friend requests can be tracked by a special nickname or the account ID which all of the users are given in the Game Center domain. Good news for parents is that they can actually have some control over what their children will play and with whom they interact with while playing.


    We are pretty pleased with the update for the Game Center and the app indeed looks pretty impressive now and is much better than what it was before in the phone. We will not give the final verdict just yet as the time we had with this device was pretty less but we feel that this could make a serious dent in the existing online gaming market.

  • Verizon Kills the Kin
    Posted on July 28, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    We had got some reports from our sources that the nation’s biggest cell phone carrier will be doing away with the Microsoft Kin and this fear was confirmed as the company has later confirmed that they will indeed be doing this and pretty soon. In a recent statement which was given by the company in this relation said that they will indeed no longer be selling the Kin in both ‘One’ and ‘Two’ variants in their own flagship stores. The customers who are already using this phone will however be not affected with the reversal. The company has announced that all kinds of customer care facilities will be available for this phone. One good thing with this pull back is that the company did not have many customers of this phone as it is.



    Indeed both these phones are really not the top of the line social networking devices and we will really not be missing it that much. The Kin One was a rather oddly shaped machine and the other variant the Kin Two had a slider QWERTY key pad. The phones were okay but nothing really great. The cell phones themselves had a custom edition of the Windows mobile platform. So they seem to be more or less okay mobile phones but what did go wrong than within a few months this device has to be shelved? The major reason was the shortcomings of the Windows phone which does not allow the users to download new applications on the device. We found this to be really one of the major downsides of this phone. What followed was some gross mismanagement on the part of Microsoft and some miscommunication from Verizon meant that they did not enter into an agreement over the data plan and Verizon wanted to take up the smartphone spectrum instead.
