  • Apple Looks to Hire for iOS Development
    Posted on December 21, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    It looks as though apple might be gearing up to take a run at the infamous Google Maps app for iOS devices like unlocked iphone 4, ipad & ipod. A recent job posting to their website calls for individuals with “computational geometry or graph theory,” as well as individuals that have substantial experience with navigation software. The company could be developing something else, but with the popularity of Google maps on the iOS platform and the very open competition between the companies, it looks as though they might be taking a page out of Google’s book and developing their own branded solution that will be eerily similar to something that is already out there on the market.


    With a little bit of guesswork you can see that Apple might be looking to integrate some sort of GPS app into the future updates for the platform. They certainly know how much these types of things can generate, with so many of their most successful apps being related to GPS features.


    Apple has not made any announcement regarding what the hiring could mean. Of course, anything is possible and they could be developing something completely different that we have not heard of yet. There was one previous occasion when the company brought some navigation experts on board, and nothing really ever came of it. It looks as though they might be willing to give that project a second shot, now that they have a new phone out and a software update that would allow them to focus on other features for a small period of time.



    Google has yet to comment on the possibility that Apple could be looking to invade on the space that Google Maps occupies, but likely would not be happy to learn. Google is never a stranger to competition, and constantly releases solutions to compete with other brands, but now it looks as though they will get a taste of their own medicine.

  • As if the unlocked Samsung Galaxy Tab had not already received enough attention for being the first legit iPad competitor, the company announced today that it would be launching a “Luxury Edition” of the device after a good first month of sales. Rogers Vice President Josh Boynton recently was quoted as saying that the tabs were “selling out as fast as they could get them in their stores,” and it has been tough for consumers to find the device for the holiday season. The Luxury Edition of the Samsung Galaxy will not be released in time for the holiday season, but it will give those that are looking for the tablet computer another version to consider.


    There will be no changes made to the Luxury Edition in terms of specs, which really will not make it all that hot of a commodity given the price hike. It will have the same standard Android 2.2 software running on it, same size display and 1 GHz processor, but will come with a nice leather case as well as a Bluetooth headset specially designed for use with the Galaxy Tab.


    The one big change will be in price. It will reportedly cost as much as $1,000, which seems to be well out of the budget of most consumers who are looking for a Galaxy tab unlocked from Samsung. It is interesting that the price hike would be as steep as it is  when the only additions to the device will be a case and Bluetooth headset. It will be interesting to see how consumers respond. Most of them should realize that they can purchase their own case and headset for a much lower price than is being offered here by Samsung. Either way, it means that Samsung will be ramping up their production of the device, which should make it more accessible for those that have had a hard time finding it so far.

  • Although the Android app platform is easily the most popular app marketplace for unlocked Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Android devices, a number of third party app marketplaces have sprung up over the course of the last few months that often include apps that are specially designed for certain carriers, manufacturers and specific devices. It’s easy to see why these app stores have increased in popularity; they allow users to immediately see what apps are available for their device and to quickly and easily sift through them to find the ones that they would like. Google recently announced that they would be making some changes to their app marketplace to make it easier to navigate and find apps. Even with the changes to the official Google Android Marketplace, they still have not made things as easy on users as some of the third party app marketplaces.


    Appsfire features a main screen that features several different lines of apps. The sections that it shows you can be customized, and some of the categories include featured apps, apps whose prices have been slashed, hot apps for the day, top free apps and top free games.



    The main screen constantly changes to show you what is available, hot and new. One problem with the app is that it just shows you the icon for each of the app, which can make it hard to tell which app you are looking at as the marketplace does not display the names of any of the apps until you have selected it.


    The “Discover” tab allows you to quickly search through the apps in a list format, which most users should find to be easier to use than the home screen. The list format provides the name and a short description of the app.


    Appsfire looks promising, and certainly makes the large collection of Android apps easier to sift through, but has not made the process as simple as it could be. As of right now the home screen seems to be a little bit cluttered, but will allow you to search through more apps in a shorter period of time.

  • Although spyware is mostly reserved for systems that run on a Windows platform, SecTheory, a security firm suggests that perhaps the newly acquired Hewlett Packard webOS platform could also be forced to deal with spyware concerns in the very near future.



    The security firm claims that they have already been able to find a number of flaws in the operating system that could potentially leave it open for spyware harassment and a plethora of different exploits that could hinder the experience of the end user. One exploit that the firm detailed involved the data field in the contacts app which can be used to run different types of code. This issue was actually already addressed with the release of webOS 2.0, but there are still quite a few errors that were detailed by SecTheory that have yet to be fixed. These exploits include a denial of service error, cross-site scripting issues that could leave webOS devices vulnerable to attack and a floating-point overflow issue.


    Hewlett Packard will likely move quickly to fix all of the issues that were pointed out by the security firm SecTheory, especially since the company just recently acquired Palm OS and is looking to integrate the technology into a umber of their own unlocked cell phone next year. Sectheory speculated that webOS has been exposed as an underdeveloped platform which will make the platform more enticing to hackers and coders who are looking to infect your smart device with malware and spyware in an effort to capture information.


    Although no operating system is completely secure, the flaws that were exposed in the framework of webOS devices should be worrisome to individuals that were looking to purchase a device that runs on the platform. It is clear that HP has a great deal of work to do before consumers should feel completely safe while using the platform.

  • FCC looking to accept 911 texting
    Posted on November 25, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    With texting becoming increasingly popular across the globe among the unlocked cell phone users, the FCC is now taking a look at how viable 911 texts would be in situations of emergency. Of course, this could potentially pose a number of problems, but if the system were not abused it could help save lives. There are plenety of situations where someone may want to silently contact 911 in order to receive help without alerting individuals around them that they are doing so.


    For instance, if someone were in your house it would make a lot of sense to hide and text 911 rather than to call and risk being heard. Or, if you were running from someone and didn't have time to stop and talk, you could send a text in order to keep moving.



    As of right now, it is not clear if they will expand their 911 services to include text messages. Any widespread roll out of the feature would likely require quite a bit of testing to ensure that the system works correctly and is not abused. The FCC is also reportedly looking into receiving MMS with streaming video and pictures so that you can more accurately describe your location or give the operator an idea of what police or medical officials can expect as they arrive on the scene.


    It will be interesting to see if they adopt this practice. It is a good idea, but may not be as practical as expected and might actually cause more confusion and problems than the current system does, which requires that you call for help. If successful,t he program could potentially save quite a few lives.

  • It is no secret that Facebook as a platform has been the most rapidly expanding internet presence over the course of the last few years, but the company announced today that they have reached the landmark 100 millionth Facebook app download. When the service first launched their apps shortly after Facebook became the most popular online social networking tool it was not clear if the apps would catch on; up until that point they had been mostly associated with mobile devices and many developers were not clear on how the apps would intertwine with the Facebook interface and were worried about clutter on news feeds.


    All of the apps were silently offered through GetJar, a vendor that is carrier neutral and offered all of the Facebook apps for downloads. As more and more unlocked  cell phone users crave an increase in the number of apps available to them as well as the platforms that these apps are available for, it will be interesting to see if Facebook Apps continue to rise in popularity. After all, it was just a few months ago that Facebook announced that they had reached 50 million downloads of their apps. They have now more than doubled that number in a very short span of time.


    GetJar is now reporting that they are bringing in more than 3 million downloads per day, which is in line with the Nokia app store download mark and is nearly one third of the number of downloads that are being recorded from the Apple App Store.


    GetJar has received additional funding in recent months and secured deals with both Yahoo and AOL to allow them to expand the number of platforms and availability of their instantly downloadable mobile apps that have been gaining popularity in recent months.

  • Apple may have paved the way with the release of the iPad, but now Samsung is getting into the tablet device game with the release of their Unlocked Galaxy Tabs, which have garnered a lot of attention from tech blogs and other media today. The company confirmed today that their device has been able to sell more than 600,000 copies across the world.



    Powered by Android, The Galaxy Tab is the first successful tablet device that utilizes the Android technology and has access to the Android app store. It is the most popular Android tablet in the world following this announcement, and the tablet is only expected to grow in popularity in the coming weeks and months.


    Samsung is undoubtedly pleased with the sales figures of the device throughout the first month. Although they came no where close to matching the figures that Apple was able to post with the iPad, it shows that there is an international market for other companies to produce tablet computers, even if they are likely unable to compete with Apple in the US market. In Korea, the home market for the company, they were able to sell more than 30,000 devices during the first week of its availability in the country.



    Apple is also launching their iPad device in Korea. So far, residents of the nation have been able to preorder the device for a week and Apple has already recorded more than 40,000 preorders, and it looks as though Apple will be able to outsell Samsung in their home market, a market that Samsung hoped that they could capture with an early release of their own tablet device. It will be interesting to see how quickly Samuang tries to spread the device to other markets and locations, and in which countries they are able to compete with Apple.

  • 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.

  • Samsung Orion Spotted
    Posted on November 16, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    Even though chips are not the most popular thing to talk about at the cool kids lunch table, this article would definitely be worth reading.  Many people would think that this would just be some ordinary, average chip – but really, it’s not.  It is much more than that actually.  The Orion has a dual core 1 GHz ARM Cortex A9 CPU with a quad-core Mali 400 GPU on board.  This was seen at the ARM Technology Conference sometime this week when they were showing “Linaro” Linux middleware, along with some stock Android 2.2 technology.


    All of the bugs were not worked out with the Samsung Orion, so they were not able to show what a HDTV would look like with it.  However, there was a demo given of Futuremark’s old Cyber Samurai benchmark which was running on a smaller screen.  This gave people a good idea of what this chip was capable of.  Many people were quite impressed as you might of guessed.


    The news keeps getting better.  There are also a lot of rumors going around that this chip will be in other products later this year into next year – and years to come.  People are really expecting this chip to help out other products, so there is a lot of excitement at this point.  Rumors have it that this will most likely end up in some other type of flagship phone soon such as the next Unlocked Galaxy Tab.  There is no word when all of the kinks will be worked out on this chip where people can be shown what a HDTV would look like with it, but they have been working non-stop on it over the past few days to get it fixed.  Pretty soon, we will get to see all of the capabilities that this chip possesses; there’s a lot to look forward to.

  • Back in September, Apple announced their new social networking site called Ping.  The concept of this site is that people would get on there and be able to discuss music with others.  They could follow people to see what they were listening to, and they can also follow different artists to check out the new songs that they released.  It would basically be a variation of Facebook, Twitter, and iTunes combined.  You would get to meet other people, mostly based on having similar tastes in music.  I think that this is a pretty good concept; however, it really did not take off right off the bat.  Even in the past month or so, over a year after it was released, it still remains widely unknown about.



    Obviously, there are some other main features about Ping as well other than just getting to know people.  Another feature, just like in ITunes, is that you can easily buy music by going to an artists’ fan page.  The people that have used Ping on unlocked iphone 4 have reported that buying music on this social networking site requires minimal to no effort.  This is a really good sign for people that may want to switch over.  Also, being on Ping pretty much means that you could get rid of ITunes as well.  The only downside is that it does not have as many artists’ as ITunes has – yet.


    Apple CEO Steve Jobs sent out an email the other day to all of his iTunes users letting people know about his social networking site.  He reported that Ping already has millions of users and that it is growing fast.  Many could be quite skeptical of his growing fast comment though since he had to send out this e-mail.  However, this does sound like a social networking site to look into.
