  • Research in Motion buys out Viigo
    Posted on April 14, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    In recent news BlackBerry development firm Viigo has been acquired by BlackBerry maker Research In Motion. Viigo, whose self titled app is one of the most popular for BlackBerry Unlocked Phones, made the announcement Friday. Once solely a RSS reader Viigo made a big splash back in 2008 when they started introducing new features such as the ability to track sports scores, weather, movie times, stock performance, flight information and podcasts. Viigo has historically developed solely for Windows Mobile but it is unclear whether or not this will continue after the news of this announcement.



    This acquisition was a logical move for Research In Motion as Viigo is the most popular app for the BlackBerry Unlocked phones. It makes sense for them to want to purchase this company and utilize their WindowsMobile application development expertise. By bringing Viigo on board it will allow for BlackBerry to build apps that are tailored for their specific user base. Viigo will be able to develop specific applications for the BlackBerry devices that will continue to be very appealing for the BlackBerry consumer.


    Also, by purchasing application developer Viigo BlackBerry will gain more control on what types of apps are released for their mobile devices. Having the ability to create these apps in house will allow BlackBerry to build a suite of apps that their consumers are sure to enjoy and will bring rave reviews for the many BlackBerry devices. It is well known that users love the various apps that are available on today’s smartphones and being able to have one of the best application makers in house will allow BlackBerry to remain a leader in the mobile device community.

  • It is being reported that the Dell Aero will be following in the footsteps of the Unlocked Motorola BACKFLIP Phone by prohibiting the installation of unsigned applications. If this rumor turns out to be true then applications for the Aero can only be purchased through the Android Market. The reason for this decisions has not been disclosed but it appears as if this will be a companywide policy for any Android device on the AT&T network.



    Because of this decision to only allow applications to be installed on the phone if they have purchased from the Android Market the new Dell Aero will not have the “With Google” branding that is associated with the other Android phones currently on the market. Since this branding will be non existent AT&T may be free to swap out Yahoo for Google and put its custom software on the Aero like it did for the BACKFLIP Unlocked Phone.


    This is just another damaging blow to the already less than popular Dell Aero that is set to hit the shelves in the coming months. With its lack of features and true smartphone powers the Dell Aero has not been highly anticipated like many of the Android phones that have and will hit the market. This announcement of not being able to load any applications onto your Aero unless they have been purchased from the Android Market is a real let down by AT&T. One of the major benefits of having an Android phone is to utilize all of the open source apps that can be put onto the phone. I expect that many Android fans will be staying away from purchasing an Android phone, either the Aero or any other model, on the AT&T market. It does not seem to be worth your time or money to buy an Android phone if you are going to use the AT&T market. It would be a much better idea to look for one from Sprint or T-Mobile so that you can get as many apps for your new phone as possible.

  • Cricket Wireless is one of the smaller cellular networks out there and has long been criticized for their lack of quality phones. Now it appears as if those critics might be forced to take notice of Cricket wireless and their very affordable mobile phone plans. Cricket’s 2010 device lineup has been leaked and there appear to be some very nice, quality phones that are set to hit the market for this wireless network. Here are a few of the highlights that you can expect to be available in the coming months.

    • Kyocera/Sanyo ZIO (M6000)
    o Target July 2010
    o MSRP $299.99
    o Android-powered touchscreen handset with 3.5 inch WVGA TFT display, Wi-Fi, 3.2 MP camera with video
    • RIM BlackBerry Curve (8530)
    o Target August 2010
    o MSRP $349.99
    o BlackBerry handset with WiFi, 2MP camera with video, QWERTY keyboard, EV-DO, A2DP
    • Samsung r710
    o Target Q4 2010
    o MSRP $249.99
    o Touchscreen feature phone with EV-DO, 3 inch 400×240 display, 3MP camera with video, full HTML browser, A2DP
    • Huawei MiFi (EC5808)
    o Target September 2010
    o MSRP TBD
    o EV-DO connectivity


    For a small but growing wireless carrier this is a pretty impressive lineup of phones to be adding to their network. Including in the list for 2010 are the BlackBerry Curve Unlocked Phone and Android powered Kyocera/Sanyo ZIO. With the addition of these two phones to their list of phones Cricket is offering the ability for their users to join in on the smartphone craze for a very affordable price. While the various data and text messages plans associated with these new smartphones have not been released they are expected to follow Cricket’s current pricing model and appeal to a wide range of mobile device consumers and provide a very cost effect alternative to the major cellular networks such as AT&T and Verizon.

  • During the CTIA convention it was rumored that Google is going to be taking some serious steps in limiting the amount of platform fragmentation that is commonly associated with the Android. This OS fragmentation has been pretty annoying to most consumers as many people have had to run four distinct versions of the browser based on an arbitrary formula of hardware, carrier, region, software customization, and manufacturers' ability to push updates in a timely fashion.



    The first steps in dealing with this troublesome fragmentation issues are expected to be addressed with the next few updates starting with Froyo and continuing through Gingerbread. Unlocked Google phone is expected to combat this problem by removing many of the standard applications and components from the platform’s core and making them downloadable in the market much as the same as what they have already done with Maps.
    The best part of Google handling updates this way through the market place is that when Google rolls out a new browser does not mean that you will have to wait for HTC, Samsung or whoever made your phone to roll it into a firmware update and for your carrier to approve it. Almost all of the user facing stuff will happen through the market place and be much easier to get a hold of and loaded onto your phone.
    Another aspect of this proposed plan by Google Unlocked Phone to stop these fragmentation issues is that Google is expected to slow their breakneck speed of developing Android’s core and focus more on application development. By not constantly updating the core of the OS Google will make it much easier for one universal version of Android to be deployed and used worldwide. Also, by focusing more on apps and features Google will be ensuring that they provide their consumers with the best possible mobile device.

  • Verizon Wireless recently announced that it will open its own mobile phone applications store on March 29th.  The announcement was made this week at the CTIA Wireless convention in Las Vegas.  This is an interesting move by Verizon as they are entering an already well established market.  Rival companies such as Apple and Google currently already operate their own versions of app stores for the iPhone and various Android based phones.



    The aspect of the Verizon app store that is going to be different and hopefully will differentiate Verizon from their competitors is the ability to pay for apps using your cell phone bill instead of having to create a new account for the app store.  Currently the way the other app stores works is that a consumer will need to set up an entirely new account to use with the app store and are billed separately.  With Verizon’s new store users will be able to make purchases as they please and will just see the charges appear on their monthly cell phone bill which will make paying for the new apps a breeze from your unlocked cell phone.
    With big name brands already entrenched in the mobile app store market it will be interesting to see how Verizon makes their initial splash.  I will be interested to see how the ability to pay for the apps with your monthly cell phone bill will be received by current Verizon consumers.  It certainly does seem to make it much easier to browse the app store and make purchases when all you need to do is confirm your purchase.  However, after an initial account set up this is how the other app stores work so there will not be that much difference between the three big app stores.

  • One of the more exciting booths at the recent CTIA Wireless convention in Las Vegas was the booth set up by AT&T.  AT&T took advantage of the CTIA Wireless convention to showcase the new U-Verse mobile service and the corresponding app.  The app that is set for release on the Apple iPhone will allow customers to watch content from their U-Verse DVR home setup directly on their mobile device.  Customers will also be able to browse television schedules and set recordings for their home DVR.  Then those videos can then be streamed to either a mobile phone or a connected laptop.


    AT&T has long allowed customers to remotely program their DVR but not the carrier is showcasing the streaming capabilities of the U-Verse Mobile service.  While pricing and specific availability for the new U-Verse app have not been released AT&T has made it clear that the app will not be exclusive to the iPhone.  This service is expected to be released later this year and is sure to be a hit with all of AT&T’s U-Verse subscribers.



    AT&T’s new U-Verse app is just another example of the fantastic advancements we are making with our mobile devices.  It should be pretty amazing to have the capabilities to record your favorite television shows or movies in your home and be able to take those programs with you wherever you go with your mobile device.  This can be the perfect app for those of us who are regularly on the go and do not have time to sit around and watch television.  We can just record the shows that we would like to see and watch them whenever we want wherever we want on our unlocked mobile devices.  This is one of the newest apps that I am really looking forward to its release.

  • When we heard about the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S we knew it was going to have some serious power but were just unsure about how much power this device would actually have.  After some mobile device testers got their hands on the new Samsung Galaxy S it is becoming more and more clear just how powerful this phone actually is.  Thanks to its PowerVR SGX540 GPU the Galaxy S has the power to push 90 million triangles per second.  Compare that to the Snapdragon platform which manages a mere 22 million polygons and the iPhone 3GS’s 28 million from the earlier SGX535 you can easily see what kind of power the Galaxy S is actually packing.


    Samsung Cell Phones


    Of course the number of polygons that you can push per second is not everything when it comes to graphical power it is certainly a giant part of the equation.  With the announcement of Galaxy S having such increased graphical power over its competitors this is sure to start a new war among mobile device companies.  It will be interesting to see where these mobile device companies take this new technology and how they expand on it and improve it.  


    Cell phones are becoming remarkable gadgets these days and it appears the Samsung Galaxy S is just another link in the chain.  With its supposed superior graphics it will be interesting to see how the Galaxy S is received in the market place and how the rest of the phone’s functions are viewed by consumers.  If Samsung took as much time enhancing other aspects of the phone as they did with the graphics then the Galaxy S is sure to be a huge hit amongst mobile phone consumers.

  • LG Rumor Touch Launching March 28
    Posted on March 30, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    Sprint recently announced that the LG Rumor Touch will be available starting March 28th.  The cost of this new phone is set at $79.99 with a new two year contract and $50 mail in rebate.  The LG Touch is set to be one of the better cell phones on the market.  Specs for the Touch include a 3 inch WQVGA touchscreen, 2.0 megapixel camera and camcorder, microSD card slot supporting up to 32GB as well as Google search and 3G data capabilities operating on the Sprint EVDO Rec. 0 network.


    LG Mobile Cell Phones
    The LG Touch also offers access to Sprint Navigation, Sprint TV, Sprint Music and Sprint Mobile Email with personal and corporate calendar features.  With the initial launch of the LG Touch on the 28th the phone is set to be released in a blue color.  Two additional colors red and purple are set to be released starting April 18th.
    The LG Rumor Touch has been one of the highly anticipated  phones in recent months.  With its full list of features the LG Rumor Touch is set to be a classic phone for anyone looking to purchase a new device on a budget.  The 3 inch touchscreen and 2.0 megapixel camera are more than enough power for the casual user while the mircoSD card supporting up to 32GB is a nice addition for even the power users.  With that sort of memory capabilities you will certainly be able to take a lot of pictures and videos to store on your phone while carrying around all of your music with you wherever you go.  I am wondering if LG plans to release this phone in any other colors besides blue, red and purple after the second set of phones are released on April 28th?
