  • Branded as the official James Bond Skyfall phone, Sony's XPeria TL arrives at AT&T November 2

     


    Dubbed the "Official James Bond Phone," the latest in Sony's XPeria Lineup, the Xperia TL, will be swaggering into AT&T stores as of November 2.


    In pretty hyperbolic style and promising to "give everyday people the chance to live like James Bond," the AT&T press release promised to make the new smartphone available for $99.99, so long as you sign a 2 year contract.


    According to Engaget, the device has quite a lot going for it, despite the fact that its "materials feel cheap." For one, it's got a 1.5GHz dual-core S4 processor as well as NFC capabilities.


    Sony's XPeria TL features a 4.6-inch 720p display

     


    Aside from that, AT&T just couldn't help reminding us all (for what seems like the thousandth time) that the Xperia TL is "featured in the upcoming James Bond cinema release Skyfall [and] will be used in the film by 007 himself."


    But just in case you didn't get the message, they've preloaded the device with tons of Skyfall content like "behind the scenes footage, interviews, clips, wallpapers, ring tones, and more."


    Though we have a hard time believing that any smartphone can ever really let someone "live like James Bond," we have to admit the XPeria TL at least looks slick enough to be something Bond would carry.

  • Sony has decided to buck the trend that’s been taking us towards ever-smaller tablets with the first Godzilla of tablets – the Sony VAIO Tap 20. This tablet/portable all-in-one pc has a 20-inch screen, weighs a hefty 11.5 pounds AND can run on its rechargeable battery for up to 3 hours. What would you call it?


    The Tap 20 is impressive. It is sleek like tablet with less bulk than most laptops. Its stand allows the 20-inch touch-screen tablet to be laid flat or propped at almost any angle. While there’s no disc drive, its wireless keyboard and mouse lets it function like an all-in-one.



    Sony is hoping that the tablet will be recognized for its versatility, particularly suited to the needs of families. It’s a desktop, laptop, all-in-one and tablet. It looks like the only thing the Tap 20 is not is a smartphone.


    Here’s a short run-down on a few more of the Tap 20’s specs.


    Hardware


    • Third-gen Intel Core i3 processor
    • 4GB of RAM (configurable to 8GB)
    • 500GB hard drive that you can also configure with i5 and i7 CPUs
    • 20-inch, 1,600 x 900 display that uses IPS technology that should create decent viewing angles even when a group is crowded around the screen
    • Built-in NFC
    • Video playback engine is powered by Sony Bravia picture-quality technology
    • 1.3-megapixel webcam
    • Dual speakers and a subwoofer


    Sony has designed in some durability. They claim that the Tap 20’s display is "drop-resistant" and the rubber seal around the bezel is supposed to keep water out of the motherboard.


    On the software front, the Tap 20 includes Artrage Studio Pro, Fingertaps (a Sony-made app that combines drawing functions with to-do lists and reminders) and My Daily Clip app that turns the tablet into a game board.


    A good-sized inventory of Sony apps are ready for download in the Windows Store including the Socialife aggregator, Music by Sony, VAIO Movie Creator and the photo and video organizer - Album by Sony.


    The Tap 20 starts at $879. Fully-loaded, it will sell for around $2,500. Sony says the machine will go on sale in the US on October 26th, the same day Windows 8 launches.

    PlayStation goes from “Suite” to “Mobile” with HTC as a partner


    Sony’s PlayStation Suite is now open to third-party manufacturers, and it’s got a new name: PlayStation Mobile.   Sony wants its new name to reflect PlayStation’s new mobility that allows additional hardware manufacturers to bring PlayStation gaming to their platforms. Sony hopes that developers will use the SDK for the PlayStation Suite to design original content for PlayStation-certified Android devices.

    Motorola Droid RAZR, Motorola Defy, Motoluxe, Motorola Xoom


    Sony Xperia U, Sony Xperia ION, Sony Xperia Play


    LG Optimus L7, LG Optimus 4G LTE and the Optimus Pad


    Sony was pretty pumped about its PlayStation Mobile news when it was announced at E3, but they’ve got some work to do to convince third parties and consumers that they’ve got a program that’s worth getting excited about. Past efforts like the PlayStation phone and subsequent PlayStation Suite were under-whelmingly received by fans.


    The first wave of HTC devices to join the PlayStation-certified list is the HTC One line of smartphones - HTC One X, HTC One S and HTC One V. HTC gets to be the first partner whose smartphone customers will be allowed to download exclusive games. Sony said that some of these would be PlayStation 1 classics.

    Sony promised more PlayStation-certified phones this year, which would mean they’re lining up other manufacturers. So far, they’re not giving any hints on who else will join the fold. Sony hasn’t revealed a timeline for the PlayStation Mobile rollout on HTC handsets either. Essentially, there are no details on what third party developers will mean to Sony’s PlayStation Mobile brand.


    What advice would you give to Sony about rolling out PlayStation gaming for Android?

  • Top 10 Android Apps
    Posted on February 28, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    By Aldo Panessidi


    For all those who are using Android phones, such as, Motorola DROID Razr, Samsung Galaxy S II, HTC Amaze, and the Sony Xperia, can turn to AppAware.  They just re-launched a couple months ago with a completely overhauled version that turned the service into a social network for app discovery.



    Perhaps the best ways to discover useful apps is to look at what people are actually updating, and not focus on which apps have the most installs. This is a good indicator of those apps having active support from their developers..


    The following is the Pure MobileTop 10 list of apps which were updated in the last seven days and received the most updates during that time period on AppAware.


    Twitter – Version 3.1.0

    Twitter Android App


    What’s new in this version:

    4. Confirmation dialog for Find Friends
    5. Security improvements
    6. New languages: Filipino, Simplified Chinese
    7. Many other bug fixes, improvements, and polish

    This week Twitter rolled out a minor update focused on performance enhancements. Some power users prefer more control over their Twitter experience and go with apps like Tweakdeck, but if you just want pure Twitter then the official app is the way to go. The improved scrolling makes this version a must update.


    Evernote – Version 3.5.3

    Evernote Android App


    What’s new in this version:


    1. Note: calendar access is used to add context in empty titles.
    2. fixes note processing issue when saving notes

    4. improves setting interface
    5. several other fixes and improvements

    There are a lot of note taking apps out there, but Evernote is the most popular by far. It currently has 10 million installs and maintains an average rating of 4.6.


    Google Docs – Version 1.0.54

    Google Docs Android App


    What’s new in this version:


    1. Create, view and edit Google documents with our new Android editor
    2. Rich text formatting (bold, italics, underline, font color, background color)

    2. Supporting hardware zoom buttons
    3. Paper camera now supports video recording on many high end devices.
    4. All Android 4.X devices are officially supported.

    Wiki Encyclopedia – Version 2.19

    Wiki Encyclopedia Android App


    What’s new in this version:


    1. **NEW PERMISSIONS*** New permissions are requested in the latest update in order to enable new features:

    5. Autocomplete/Suggest on search
    6. Widget

    I have personally used this app countless time... it has over 5 million installs with an average rating of 4.4. Wiki Encyclopedia offers fast access to Wikipedia for your Android phone and also supports dozens of newspaper feeds. The latest update adds a widget and the ability to upgrade to the Pro version for free.

    4. Send and receive Photos.
    5. New “is typing” indicator will notify you when he or she is typing a new message.
    6. Landscape support for Messages.

    While I personally have never used this app,  Viber allows you to call and text other Viber users, on any network, as much as you want. The app is available on Andorid and iPhone, which explains why they have over 40 million users. The latest update has a new voice engine that promises “HD sound quality.”

    7. Optimize stranger’s avatar

    9. Fix some other minor bugs

    It is one of the most full featured SMS apps and it’s great for Android phones that have crappy custom UIs that replace the default message app. The latest update is mostly bug fixes and optimizations, but give it a try if you are tired of your boring old SMS app.


    Movies by Flixster – Version varies with device

    2. Merged Box Office and Upcoming into a single tab
    3. Fixed Facebook logout crash on ICS
    4. Numerous other bug fixes and improvements

    Flixster is one of the most popular movies apps. The latest version includes a new “My Movies” feature that might be worth checking out if you like to log all the movies you watch.


    Dropbox – Version varies with device

    Dropbox Android App


    What’s new in this version:


    1. Allows you to automatically uploads photos and videos in the background using Wi-Fi or data plan
    2. Up to 3 GB of free space for uploading photos automatically (in 500 MB increments)
    3. Upload files of any size
    4. Various performance improvements & bug fixes
    5. Heads up, Dropbox can no longer be installed on your SD Card due to more secure credential storage

    Dropbox is currently being used at Pure Mobile. Their latest app adds support for automatic uploads of your photos, a feature that’s been available on Google+ for awhile now. They are also offering up to 3 GB of free cloud storage, but then again Box is offering 50 GB for free.

    There are important features that are lacking, though, since Sony is still waiting for approval in order to activate them. Such include WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as access to Google Apps including the Android market. Hopefully Google will give them the okay soon, and Android 4.0 will be in the wild before too long.


    This beta version is aimed at developers, as Sony does not intend this incomplete ROM to be used as a daily driver. Regardless, it could be fun for the more adventurous Android user to check out what Ice Cream Sandwich will be like on Sony hardware. If you happen to be the proud owner of an Xperia Arc S, Xperia Ray, or Xperia Neo V, this ROM is available for your flashing needs.

    Managing Customer churn as well acquiring new customers is an ongoing problem for all carriers... as such, they make it difficult for customers to switch providers.  To this end, practically all carriers worldwide engage in 'false highly-persuasive' advertising.  They will typically lure consumers with the offer of FREE smartphone and then hook, reel and lock them in with long term service plans that are designed to not only subsidize the cost of the cell phone but provide wireless voice & data services at premium prices.  To further enforce customer loyalty, carriers lock their giveaway phones to only work within their network frequencies - thus making it difficult for consumers to leave them for another carrier.


    In some cases, the programming may be easy to reverse, with the user simply reformatting the cell phone or removing the phone's memory card.   In other instances, the phone may be designed in such a way that it is impossible to use it with another network, with most cell phone brands, like Apple, Blackberry, Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, HTC, LG Mobile and Sony to name a few,  manufacturing specific phones for particular networks.


    In contrast, an unlocked phone are simply handsets that aren't handcuffed to a specific carrier's service package can be used on any network.

    Unlocking a phone - How it works


    Unlock Cell Phone


    A cellphone handset is like a body without a brain. It can't make calls unless it has a thumbnail-sized chip called a SIM card installed. The SIM card identifies an individual phone on a cellular network so that calls can be routed to it as the handset is carried from place to place, so the owner's account can be billed for air time and long-distance fees, and so on.


    When a phone is bought on a service plan, the SIM card in that phone is linked to the subscriber's ID information for billing. Most carriers lock the phone by programming its software so that it will only work with the SIM card they provide — try to swap it with a card from another carrier because it has a cheaper service plan, for example, and the phone won't recognize it.


    An unlocked cellphone is one that will recognize any SIM card. So if you're travelling in Europe and don't want to incur roaming charges or have every local call billed as long distance by your regular North American cellphone carrier, you can buy a local European carrier's card during your stay and pop it into your regular phone.


    The caveat is that there are two main cellphone networks, and they aren't compatible with one another. One is based on the CDMA standard, which is popular in North America and parts of Asia, and used by Bell and Telus in Canada. The other is GSM, which is used by Rogers in Canada and is the most common cellphone standard outside North America, used by more than 2 billion subscribers in most countries around the world.


    An unlocked phone will work on a compatible network — CDMA phones on CDMA networks and GSM handsets on GSM networks. But many CDMA phones have the SIM card built in, and have to be reprogrammed directly to make the phone work on another carrier's network. Most GSM handsets, on the other hand, have a slot that allows a SIM card to be swapped easily by the user.  As a result, unlocked cellphones available in Canada are predominantly GSM models.

    We recently had a chance to view and blog about the leaked Sony smartphone roadmap.  If this is to be believed we expect Sony to release three phones in 2nd quarter of 2012... these are the LT22i Nypon, the MT27i Pepper and the ST25i Kumquat.   it is most probable that these three cell phones will be formerly announced by Sony at next month's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.


    Sony Xperia U Leaked


    From a leaked document found on an  Indonesian website agency... which is the equivalent of the US based FCC  has listed Sony's code named ST25i smartphone as the new Sony Xperia U - thanks to GSM Arena for the provided specs.   Above is one of the first leaked images of the new Xperia U which is a welcome addition to the Sony Xperia cell phone business line.  Which makes wonder if Sony is planning to follow in Samsung- branded cell phones footsteps by creating an a plethora of Xperia models.
