  • Apple COO Talks Cheap iPhone
    Posted on March 6, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The rumors about a cheaper unlocked iPhone 4 have been around for a long time. They first started a few weeks ago when reports stated that an iPhone-mini version was being worked on. these rumors were quickly shot down and now it appears that instead of a smaller version of the iPhone, Apple might just be looking into creating a version of the iPhone that features lower quality hardware and is able to be sold for a cheaper price.



    The Apple COO, Tim Cook stated in a recent press event that Apple does not want their products to only be for “the rich,” and confirmed that they are looking to release cheaper versions of their products in order to make them appeal to a larger selection of people. Of course, the rumors of a cheaper version of the iPhone have been all over the net in recent months, but Apple has not really addressed them as directly as they did today.


     


    Apple is also looking into expanding into the prepaid market. The moves that Apple was looking to make in the prepaid market was described as “clever,” although Tim Cook did not go any farther with his explanations then that. He also confirmed that Apple was going to be aggressively pursuing the tablet market moving forward, as the demand for those devices has risen substantially over the course of the last few weeks.


     


    some have said that they believe that tablets could one day end up being as much as a $100 billion business for Apple, followed by other companies who are releasing devices in the space. With technology moving so quickly, who knows what kind of features could be included with tablets in the future. Watch for more rumors of a cheaper iPhone 4 unlocked and other prepaid plans being released at some point in the near future.

  • iOS 4.3 Coming Mid February
    Posted on February 9, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The newest version of iOS, iOS 4.3 for unlocked iphone 4 will be launching on February 14th, according to a number of different sources. So far, Google has had a pretty standard operation in terms of the development of the newest version. They have been releasing a new version of the iOS platform about once every two weeks. With the final beta version seemingly upon us, you can expect the company to release the software for all to use sometime next week.


    Apple has remained silent about when users can expect the official launch to come, likely for fear that other bugs would be discovered and they would not meet their original plan. All that you can know now is that Apple will release the software when they feel it is ready.



    It looks as thought they are hoping to release the update close to Valentines Day, which could be a bad thing for those of us that are looking to play with the features. Playing with the phone on Valentines Day will not make the wife happy, but for some of us could be worth in the long run.


    A few different rumors have been leaked so far, pinning the release date either earlier or later in the week depending. It will be interesting to see how and when the software is finally launched. iOS 4.3 for iphone 4 unlocked and ipads has been the talk of the town since word of it first made its way online several months ago, and Apple has continued to test it throughout its beta stages. It appears that the newest update could be just on the horizon, so keep your eye out for the announcement as we get closer to Valentine ’s Day. Apple has not confirmed or denied any of the rumors that have been released so far.

  • You may have heard about the popular application and desktop program, Dragon Naturally Speaking. The app and program allow you to speak into the device, which will then read what you have said and do all of the typing for you. The new app, Dragon E-Mail, will allow you to speak into the device to compose emails, use contact names and also automatically enter subject lines for you. This is great for on the go emailing when you do not have time to sit down and type one out, but would like to pass along some very important information. Dragon is a program that has been utilized by many, and has continued to expand from one platform to another.


    The official site for Dragon claims that using the app can make your typing up to five times as fast as it would be on a regular keyboard. There are a number of BlackBerry devices that will be able to receive the functionality of the app including the Rogers BlackBerry Bold 9000, Rogers Bold 9700 unlocked and the TELUS BlackBerry Storm 2.


    The company first became known for their excellent desktop programs that allowed users to type using their voice instead a keyboard. Since that tiem they have released a plethora of different apps for a number of different devices including the unlocked iPhone 4 and Android platforms.


    The app has received rave reviews on most app marketplaces, and its inclusion in the BlackBerry App World makes a lot of sense, since the Dragon E-Mail app seems as thought it would be of the biggest benefit to on the go businessmen, which is precisely the demographic that the BlackBerry was created for. The app is already available in the BlackBerry App World marketplace, and user reviews are being posted by users that have downloaded the program.

  • Verizon iPhone on the Horizon
    Posted on January 10, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    A source close to Apple has stated that the blackout on employee vacation requests is indeed related to the Apple launch of their unlocked iPhone 4 product on Verizon, which will reportedly come on February 3rd. The deal has been one that has been long awaited, and has been rumored to be on the near horizon for quite some time. Of course, this has never materialized leading some to believe that it may never happen. Now, with the blackout on the horizon and no explanation being released for it, it appears that Apple is going to keep quiet about the launch until some point at the Consumer Electronics Show. Their announcement should overshadow just about any other announcement at the show and will create a lot of hype. Verizon users have been eagerly awaiting the release of the iPhone, and it finally seems as if it is coming to fruition.



    The Verizon iPhone has no information out there about it currently. Some have speculated that it could have additional features that would make it a more worthwhile purchase, but no information about that has been released so far.


    The blackout only applies to individuals that work in the retail stores and does not apply to employees with seniority. If the iPhone is indeed what is causing this move, it is likely because they are expecting a huge turnout in the days leading up to and following the release. There is no doubt that the iPhone will be abundantly popular on the iPhone 4 unlocked, but Apple certainly seems to think that they will need all hands on deck to deal with the response.


    Now, we have to wait for an official announcement from Apple. With all of this speculation, it will be hard for them to keep it quiet for long, especially with insiders already talking to the media. Expect the announcement to come at some point in the near future.

  • Sony Ericsson announced today that their highly popular Unlocked Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 phone would no longer be receiving anymore updates to the Android operating system from here on out. This announcement was met by wrath for many XPERIA X10 users who have already made it clear that they have had a problem with the slow upgrading process that has been seen through many of their releases so far.


    You would think with the past criticisms that the team has had to face that they would be more apt to upgrade some of their current releases. Their slow upgrading process has been a problem for many of their users, and the company has shown no willingness to go above and beyond expectations with their current upgrading model. Hopefully they will reconsider their decision and will upgrade the Xperia X10 software past Android 2.1, where it currently sits.


    The company argued in their tweet that the features that were included in the 2.1 update for Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Unlocked were on par, and may even exceed those of a basic 2.2 installation. Of course, anyone who followed the update knows that this is not true in many areas and seems to be a bit of a cop out by the company. This caused outrage among their loyal customers. the problem was not only that they weren't going to be updating the phone in a timely fashion - again, it was mostly that the company seemed to announce that the move wouldn't be made for all of the wrong reasons.


    There is no doubt that the company will have to address the issue again the future, based on the response that they have received thus far. With the slow roll out of updates, Sony seems to have demonstrated that their phones will, in most cases, not be willing to budge on the issue of updates. They can be a bit tricky to handle between models, and they seem to be focusing more on releasing new, updated phones rather than worry about the updating process of older phones.

  • New BlackBerry Messenger Leaks
    Posted on January 5, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The BlackBerry messenger is an application that is constantly updated. Now it appears that version 5.0.1.45 has made its way online. The news of the new message made its way online shortly after the leak. The newest version provides a number of adjustments that allow the messenger to perform better on a day to day basis. Research in Motion has added a number of speed enhancements that allow you to more quickly send and receive messages through BlackBerry messenger and has also added the ability for multiple parties to take part in group chats, a feature that has been waited for a long time by users.


    At this point, the leaked version does not work on devices running on BlackBerry OS5 like unlocked BlackBerry Bold 9700, but that could change before it is officially released. If you plan on installing the leaked version of the software, remember to back up everything first as a number of users have reported issues and lost data after installing. Also, remember to follow any installation instructions provided to you by the book so that you do not run into any unwanted issues. An improperly upgraded device could become inoperable in some situations.


    This upgrade should satisfy the millions of BlackBerry Messenger users that are constantly looking for new features. The speed enhancements should mean that users can more quickly share data with one another and it also means that group chats will allow users to chat between several different parties, a feature that has been rumored for a long time but has never been formally announced.


    It will be interesting to see what BlackBerry unlocked cell phone has to say in their formal announcement for the update that is reportedly forthcoming. The features that they have added also allow you to integrate music that could potentially be shared with your chat friends later down the road. Could the BlackBerry Messenger become more of a collaborative tool in the future than a chat app?

  • With nearly the entire world starting to pick up on the smart phone trend, it is a bit of a surprise that it has taken this long for the largest of companies to get serious about the implementation of security measures, especially with the rising prevalence of identity theft in an online data-rich world. Verizon recently announced that they were working with Lookout, a company that is known for their apps that use geolocation features for BlackBerry, Android and LG C900 unlocked Windows Phone 7 Devices. Verizon has phones that use all of the mentioned operating systems, and their deal with the small security company should help to ensure that no large leaks take place in the future.


    In addition to the changes that Verizon is making, RIM announced that they would be releasing their new product, the “BlackBerry Protect,” which will lock and erase all of the data from a misplaced phone, as well as allow users to make wireless backups directly from their phone. This is needed especially since the Unlocked BlackBerry is a device that is mostly used for business situations, the data that could potentially be on one could be damaging in situations where it is stolen.



    AT&T also has deals with McAfee and MobileIron on the table. They also recently announced that they would be opening a new security laboratory in New York City which would be charged with developing new security measures directly for the company in an effort to prevent malware, worms and other threats that have become so prevalent on PCs.


    It is nice to see that these companies are taking the security of their users more serious. As things stand right now, far too little effort and investment has been put into the security of the users and this shift shows that companies are realizing exactly how much data they are trusted with on a monthly basis, and how important it is to some businesses.

  • The Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant was a phone that was touted by many as the next potential competitor for the iPhone. Although many doubted that the phone would reach the level that it has, the 9.3 million mark that was announced today places the phone among some very elite competition.



    The company first announced in October that they had sold more than 7 million units of the phone across the globe. They also predicted that the fun would sell more than 10 million by the new year, which seems to be a mark that they are going to miss, but needless to say, the numbers that they have reached are still very impressive.


    The Galaxy S is by far the most successful phone that Samsung has placed on the market. The fact that they are going to fall below their original projections shows that perhaps the sales of slowed, but the overall number is high enough to earn the applause of anyone who follows the mobile industry.



    The phone is the most popular Android device in the world, making it the only real legitimate iPhone competitor. Although the iPhone 4 unlocked has sold substantially more, the Galaxy S is Android’s shining star, rising above the expectations and showing that Samsung can create a phone that can compete with the best on the market.


    This is also a victory for Google, who has been investing heavily in Samsung devices in recent years. Their decision to go with the Galaxy S paid off in the long run, and the phone has grown to be the most impressive of the Android offerings. When it was originally released, many complained that it looked too much like an iPhone, but those complaints have dissipated as the usability of the phone has won users over.

  • iPhone Realtor App Launched Today
    Posted on December 24, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    The REALTOR and unlocked iPhone 4 application is now on the marketplace and is available for download. The app, which was created by the Canadian Real Estate Association will allow you to look at all of the different properties in your area that are currently on the market. The app uses a GOS to show you the map, and pinpoints the locations of the homes or properties that are for sale.


    The app also comes with a number of different features that realtors or those looking to purchase properties may find useful. The ability to contact the agent that is responsible for the sale of the property is something that is very important if you are looking to purchase a new home, and this app makes it as simple as a touch of the screen.


    The app will be a popular one, especially with the economy the way that it is. The ability to stay up to date on all of the listings in the area that you are looking for is very useful. The Realtor.com  App also allows you to filter the results that you get on the properties, allowing you to only look for properties that are within your price range, square footage or number of bedrooms that you set.


    The iphone 4 unlocked Realtor app will probably be duplicated by other smaller companies in the United States. An app that allows agents to add their listings to an application that can be searched any time of the day is something that would certainly help them to secure the sale of the home, so you would imagine that it would be supported both by buyers as well as those that are involved with the selling process. It will be interesting to see what other countries and areas adopt this idea and use it to help stimulate some sales in areas that have had a hard time during the recession.

  • With rumors of the Playstation Phone everywhere, Sony announced today that they would be adding Playstation app to their resume. The app will only be available for Android and iOS devices. The app will give users a number of options. Unfortunately one of those options will not be to play Playstation games on their phone. The app works in a way that is similar to the XBox Live features that are available on LG C900 Unlocked Windows Phone 7.


    The app will grant you access to all of the most up to date news on the Playstation platform and will also let you see what your friends are playing and whether or not they are online. Now you do not even have to get up and walk to the Playstation to see which of your friends are online. If you are feeling like you might want to play some online games, simply look up who is online on your phone and see if anything catches your eye.


    The app will launch first in Europe, including in France, Germany, and Spain. Sony also said that they were looking to expand the features and countries that will carry the app in the near future. This is to be looked at as a testing period to make sure that everything is running smoothly.



    Unlocked iphone 4 iOS devices will have to be running version four or above to use the App, and Android phones have to be using 1.6 or a higher version. They did not announce when this would be coming to the US but if it is successful in its initial releases, you can expect it to make its way here very soon.


    Here’s to hoping the next announcement from the company is the Playstation Phone which has had several videos of it released but has received no official confirmation from Sony Ericsson.
