  • Alien Babel Tech recently discovered that the HTC Vanguard, a T-Mobile operating with a HSPA+ network has a speed, which surpasses many other networks. The man who presented the benchmark at first place was Mike Bibik, a Senior Interaction Designer for T-mobile. This high-speed crazy machine has two other names like G1 Blaze Vision and Glacier. Other high-speed smartphones in the market are the Samsung Unlocked Galaxy S and the iPhone 4. When compared with the HTC Vanguard, these two phones scored 50% less than the HTC Vanguard in terms of CPU and GPU performance. A fast GPU and CPU obviously offer the users fast net connections on the phone.


    This high speed facilitates browsing and downloading and thus makes phone web an enjoyable experience for its users. Earlier even if smartphones had amazing resolution and most of the key features downloading speed on the phone was very low. Thus they could not raise much in the markets. Now with highly compatible application desired speed is available on an Android Operating System. Also to increase the battery life of the phones microSIM cards have been developed. These are greatly reduced versions in terms of size.



    Once the SIM card size gets reduced developers can get an opportunity to increase the battery size. This will offer longer browsing hours on the phone. These microSIM chips have been designed from 45 nm transistors and the next version promises to make it even smaller! The price of this device has not yet been finalized. One thing is that after getting high ratings on the net speed the price is expected to be pretty high and so it might not be economical for all classes of the society. Nevertheless this new HTC Vanguard phone definitely is a contribution to the world of today’s smartphones.

  • Now here’s some news for the Facebook addicts. Unlocked Motorola Milestone Android phones have finally got a platform on which users can successfully run all the Facebook applications. The man behind this creation is Eric Tseng. According to him people would avoid Android phones since its functionality was limited. With Facebook application installed the Androids are sure to get an upper hand in the market and the might just tiff off iPhone applications also!


    The new version 1.3 can easily be downloaded from the Internet. Most noticeable thing about the Facebook application when you run it on your Unlocked Sony Ericsson Xperia x10 Android phone is the Homepage. Browsing media files is definitely a lot easier with it.


    Only drawback is that sometimes the resolution is not clear (even on EVO 4G’s screen) and images and videos are not very distinguishable. So the poor image clarity makes it a time taking procedure since the user isn’t sure whether it’s a photo updated by a friend or some random video. There are some additional features also. Like notifications appear in the form of a taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Users can check their notifications by simply clicking on the task bar anytime they want to do so. Keeping the bar in the background users can update their statuses and perform searches.


    Responding to friend requests is also easier. Without opening one’s mobile website, friend requests can be accepted or declined. “Picture Timeline” is a new era altogether. Users can browse through their friend’s photos with the help of this application. One important application, which fails to in the new Facebook application for Androids, is the Facebook chat. Absence of this particular feature makes the application almost at par with Facebook applications available on other Smartphones. Though Android developers promise to eliminate this shortcoming in their next version.

  • The Motorola Unlocked  Droid (X) has been well received by the customers and indeed it has a lot of plus sides to it as compared to the draw backs. Probably the biggest plus of this phone is that it does not come with a very heavy custom UI which means that the updates for the Android will reach this phone much faster than other phones which have the infamous Sense UI which does get pretty heavy and entails that the Android 2.2 updates will be reaching these devices much later than the others. This according to us is pretty much what the case is as there have been cases where the owner of any HTC Sense enabled phone is not getting this update while a plain Android Nexus One has the Froyo. The EVO 4G however is probably the only phone on the Sense UI slated to get the Froyo. In this light, we have received news from sources that the Motorola Droid users will not have to bear the agony as it is to get the Android 2.2 as early as next week.


    This will mean that the Droid can be used to experience the best of the Froyo features on the keyboard included handset. One of the most important features of the Froyo is the capability to support Flash 10.1 which means that there will be improved Java Script feature which entails that browsing the internet on your phone will be better than ever before. The microSD storage for apps gives the user pretty good flexibility to manage the memory on your phone. The update will mean that the phone can be totally revamped and one will feel as if they are getting a totally new device altogether. We will keep a track on when this will be pushed into the market especially by the service providers like Verizon.

  • Spirit and its manufactures were in the doldrums with falling profits, bleeding subscribers to Apple’s unlocked Iphone4 but it has changed quite a bit since the inclusion of the Sprint HTC EVO 4G. Spirit’s run at the markets and the smartphone industry seemed to be in tatters and their business almost to a dead end but for the latest HTC EVO 4G. Spirit had previously tried to fight its arch enemy, its nemesis Apple through various means, for example the device like the Palm Pre (which by the way was a total failure). Apple and its iPhone and their improved versions seemed just too hot to handle. But this new Android by Spirit has seemingly breathed life to the company. Sprint added 111,000 net customers for the second quarter of 2010.


    The smartphone Sprint HTC EVO 4G has been clearly making waves. It’s been rumoured to become one of the best, if not, the best smartphone of its times. Though it has been selling like hot cakes, yet at times the HTC EVO 4G is difficult to acquire from the stores


    Spirit was reportedly at a loss of $760 million in its first quarter of the year and it had lost around 22800 subscribers. Spirit has now a total of 48.2 million subscribers. Though the company was on the downhill it seems their latest adventure in the form of Sprint HTC EVO 4G did pay off and it managed to keep the losses to a bare minimum.



    It seems good times lie ahead for this company. There had been frequent complaints by customers about their notorious customers service and their imperfectness, but now with the surge in profits the company has seen a dramatic change in its personnel. This year in the last quarter the company was reported to having its best-ever contract churn rate of 1.85%.

  • In the last few months, what we have seen is the media only dishing out some heavy criticism for the new Apple Unlocked  iPhone 4 for its reception problems and how the company has handled the whole fiasco. However unlike the media in America, the European media has not really singled this phone out and in fact they have said that the performance of this phone is more or less on par with other smartphones currently available in the market. A recent report a major Norwegian newspaper recently reported that the mobile phone did not in fact have any kind of flaw in its engineering and therefore was performing okay. They have also said that the phone has been well received by the major carriers Telenor.


    The above mentioned newsletter has based their conclusions on some testing which they have done with some of the most popular smartphones in the market. In an analysis done where they have compared the iPhone 4, Nokia Unlocked  E71, HTC Wildfire and the older iPhone 3GS, they say that they have found the same issues with the reception dropping due to the manner in which the phone is held. Amazingly they have also gone to the extent of reporting that the iPhone 4 does not actually drop calls if the signal is lost in the phone. Along with that, they also analyzed the data and the voice quality on the iPhone 4 and the 3GS and what they found was that both were superior as compared to the HTC and the Nokia counterparts. Although the voice was cut when the signal went down, the calls were not dropped, said the reports.


    To be honest, in the tests that we have done, the iPhone 4 Unlocked handset has not really failed us that much and its performance is not startlingly low as compared to other major phones provided by carriers.

  • Rumor has it that T-Mobile is all set to launch their new MyTouch 3G as anticipated as an Android phone are rearing up making it count by getting started in the blog world. This new gadget could actually mark the company’s first real and serious move in releasing handsets which the carrier’s 4G networking, which has enough material in it to outdo Sprint’s 4G offerings. There has been a rumored image leak of what the new MyTouch 3G might look like came with a leaked photo and as the rumor exists this might just be the same that is all set to make its launch. Some might differ in their opinions that T-Mobile was getting serious on the Android smartphones with their Samsung Vibrant which is a variant of the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S handsets by T-Mobiles, but when you consider the fact that every other carrier is taking aid of the same family in getting a device, it would be very difficult to actually consider that the offers presented by Magenta was good enough to make its own mark.



    Before the Vibrant actually came along, the only handsets that were anywhere near good were HTC HD2, which despite their Windows Mobile operating system made quite a run and the Slide MyTouch which was powered by Android and seriously none had enough fire in them to compete in the recent market scenario. And if the rumors are true them this new release by T-Mobile, the MyTouch 3G will spearhead Magenta’s initiative in such unlocked handsets. As the leaked pictures might suggest the MyTouch 3G looks quite similar to Slide. The screen on it is arguably larger than that of Slide’s and might just touch the four inch milestone. And there is a fat chance that SLCD display will get a role to play in this phone. Among the other features that count, it has a front camera and a normal QWERTY keypad which is a slide out one. As this new handset is all set to blaze off into the market, its success can only be speculated.

  • 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’.

  • 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.

  • We recently received some great bits of tantalizing information where we got to check out some new toys for the Blackberry Unlocked Smartphone OS 6 which comprised of the Blackberry OS 6.0.0.100. Although we have laid our eyes on the Blackberry 6 a number of times through various means, this has been probably one of the closer and more definitive looks that we have got for this product. The OS has not yet been completed as far as what we have seen from the reports that we have got. However the Facebook app and the entire app world is on its way. This new version apparently has better HTML capability for the emails that you want to send but we honestly have not got to see anything as such. The new feature which we found out was the virtual color coding of the messages which was pretty interesting.


    Other than this there is also a nice way in which you can keep a check on all the applications which you use most frequently on your cell phone and which take up most of your app memory stock. There is also a rumor that this will come with 512 MB memory and we are hoping that this will allow better memory management in this device. Most notably there is one media application which seems to be new and is called the Web Video Search. This one comes with the OS 6 but we cannot say whether it is a preload from any carrier like Verizon. Irrespective of that, we like what this app provides users with, by giving them an easier way of enjoying YouTube and other similar video web pages.


    We have also caught sight of some keypad demos which are pretty good. The Webkit browser is also something we have got reports of but right now, nothing is confirmed.  However we can gather that the experience of browsing on the OS 6 is a great leap.

  • 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.
