    Samsung has a Galaxy Note2 with “UBP”


    The new Samsung Galaxy Note “phablet” is in the works as a follow up to the success of its first phone/tablet hybrid –  the Galaxy Note. 


    The Galaxy Note was one of the key contributors to Samsung's success in the past year. Over seven million devices have been sold worldwide. That beats the company’s sales projections from back in March by two million units.


    According to MK Business News, Samsung plans to release the new handset in October. Samsung apparently wants its new Note to go head to head with the Apple iPhone 5 that is also expected to enter the market in the fall.


    The Galaxy Note2 will have a display that is rumored to be larger than the current Note’s 5.3-inches. It will up the technology bar with a display made from “unbreakable plane” (or “UBP”), a precursor to the flexible display. The Note II is also is rumored to have a slimmer design than the Note, a quad-core processor and an Android Jelly Bean OS.


    No details on pricing have been provided by Samsung.

    Hacker claims theft of 50GB of credit card data stolen from 79 major banks


    The hacker known as Reckz0r proclaimed that he had illegally accessed these banks’ servers, and he provided the confidential data to prove it.  Reckz0r boasted that he was only showing only a portion of the data stolen, and the full amount is “about 50GB or bigger” taken from “over 79 large banks.”  He also said that he had been working on his project over the last three months.


    The international credit card processing company Global Payments confirmed back in March that hackers had stolen the credit card numbers of as many as 1.5 million MasterCard and Visa customers. No one is saying whether this new data leaked by Reckz0r was part of the earlier breach.

    Android texting application Swype has been in the design phase for awhile, but its beta shows it has evolved into a sophisticated next-generation app with four-in-one keyboard and voice capabilities.


    Swype’s four keyboard choices and 55 language downloads


    Chief among the app's redesign is the option of using one of four kinds of keyboards:  traditional letter-to-letter swiping, while adding the ability to type with predictive text input, use an integrated Dragon button to speak the text, or rely on the old peck-and-hunt one-finger motion. Users can swap between any of the modes limitlessly.


    Swype’s new features also include next-word prediction that allows the app to build on historical usage, compiling every word a user enters in emails, texts, or other posts. Swype's 55 language downloads allow users to communicate in any language they can speak.  Swype can be installed on all Android based cell phones including the Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S2 as well as HTC One X and Motorola Droid Razr 


    According to Michael Thompson, EVP and general manager for Nuance Mobile (the speech-recognition software building company that acquired Swype last October), "People use their keyboards every day in every way — so input needs to be fast and simple. The new Swype living, learning keyboard users in a new era of input, where the keyboard adapts to the user's unique way of communicating every time they swype, speak, tap, or write."


    The Swype Beta for Android is available for download via beta.swype.com. There's also an SDK for other operating systems.

    Here comes Google’s new Nexus tablet


    Google is finally ready to show what it can do with its own brand of tablet. It’s called the “Nexus 7. ” We hear we’ll get a first look at it at next week’s Google I/O developer conference.


    DigiTimes just reported a number of details about the Nexus 7 slate that seem to ring true. The DigiTimes source in the tablet’s supply chain claimed that Google’s next major Android release - Jelly Bean - would come in the second quarter. They also reported that Nexus tablet shipments would begin in June in preparation for a July launch.


    Microsoft’s unveiling of its “Surface” tablet seems to be the start of a major effort by software wizards to become hardware masters. Google seems to be right behind. Google also has a few Android partners that help on the device building side. Some are developing their own software expertise. Just when we thought the only entertainment was going to be Apple against the rest of the world, it seems the natives have gotten restless.


    Google I/O begins on June 27th.

    HTC  has just confirmed that a hardware problem is causing Wi-Fi connectivity issues with their HTC One X smartphone.  To verify if your One X smartphone is defective... simply run the Wi-Fi  squeeze test if the signal strength improves - it confirms that the device is defective.


    HTC confirms wifi hardware problem with their One X


     


    The company is obviously faced with a tough hardware problem. A software update isn’t the answer. This isn’t the first time HTC has had Wi-Fi signal problems. Awhile back its HTC Sensation suffered from antenna design problems.


    HTC has stepped up early and accepted blame. In a public statement a company rep said: "After investigating isolated reports of Wi-Fi connectivity issues in the HTC One X, we have identified a fix that strengthens the area of the phone around the Wi-Fi antennae connection points. While many customers have not experienced any problems with signal strength, we have taken immediate steps to implement a solution in our production process to prevent this issue from happening in the future. HTC is committed to making sure every customer has a great experience and we apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused while we conducted a thorough investigation."


    This statement describes the production changes going forward, but there still doesn’t appear to be a plan for dealing with the defective phones already in consumer hands.  Everyone is covered by the warranty replacement protection, so if you think your phone has the problem, take it back to the point of purchase right away. Don’t let the warranty period expire.


    We hope HTC takes their corrective action one step further and provides protection for this defect to One X owners on an unlimited basis. What’s to say the problem couldn’t pop up in these phones at a later date?

    Nokia doesn’t need any more bad press, but now Reuters and BusinessWeek have been spreading the news from more than a few financial analysts and venture capitalists that Nokia’s troubles are far from over.


    Analysts anticipate more troubles for Nokia


    UBS stated that Nokia would have “to significantly discount its new Microsoft Lumia products, including the Nokia Lumia 900, Nokia Lumia 800 and the Nokia Lumia 710 in order… to gain any traction with retailers, operators and consumers.”


    Canaccord Genuity predicted “a continued sharp decline in Symbian smartphone sales…combined with a slow ramp in Windows smartphone volume.”


    Janardan Menon with Liberum Capital said that Nokia had,  ”too much baggage in terms of cost structure and legacy operating systems” to be attractive to most buyers.


    Charlie Wolf, an analyst at Needham & Company painted the worst picture. He said “if Nokia doesn’t come out of its funk within a year, Nokia is going to be finished.”


    Microsoft has been the only company talked about as a serious potential buyer.


    Nokia has been lowering its projections. Most recently they cut earnings expectations and announced layoffs of 10,000 employees by the end of 2013.

    Apple iPhone 5 Cases and Accessories


    It looks like Apple’s new iPhone 5 will be on the market in September or October 2012. From the rumors we’ve heard, it’s packing some big changes as well as improvements.   iLounge’s Jeremy Horowitz has published a couple of pictures of what the new iPhone might look like. They’re a great comparison between the new and the old.


    I have observed the following 3 signs of an impending iPhone 5 market release:


    1. It seems that the black iPhone 4 stocks are low... similar to what we saw a few months ago with the diminishing white iPhone 4 stock levels.   Rumor has it that Apple has instructed dealers to provide customers with comparable iPhone 4S replacements.  Just like how the launch of the iPhone 4S meant the end of the iPhone 3G, the launch of an iPhone 5 would mean the end of the iPhone 4 and a price markdown for the iPhone 4S.
    2. Apple moves to acquire 'iPhone 5' domain name: While iPhone 5 rumours have been circulating since November last year, Apple has now decided to file a claim with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in order to get the domain iPhone 5.com. The complaint (Case number: D2012-0951) popped up on WIPO’s website just this week.
    3. Service providers along with other vendors such as Tiger Direct and best Buy slashes price of iPhone 4S & 4: Target is now discounting new iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S by $50 with a two-year contract. This brings the new prices in-store for the iPhone 4 8GB to $50 and the 4S 16GB to $150 (both AT&T and Verizon).

    Please share other signs you think possibly hint to an impending iPhone 5 announcement in the comment section below.


    View the following video for complete rumours on iPhone 5 specs and release date



    The launch of the iPhone 5 will also drive lucrative after market accessories sales, where, brands like Incipio, Griffin, iLuv, who are all vying to be first to market with new cell phone accessories specially designed for the new iPhone 5.


    While brands like iSkin and Incase continue to perfect their accessories which traditionally results in a typical 2-4 week delivery after the iPhone 5 is launched.


    One thing remains sure... only those online accessory re-sellers, like Pure Mobile which has established  strong strategic alliances with key accessory brand manufacturers will be best positioned to be first-to-market and provide consumers with the latest iPhone 5 accessories.


    The word on the street it that the new iPhone will have a 4-inch display, and it will be taller and thinner than the current iPhone 4S. It looks like the back side of the case will have a metal pane. It doesn’t look like it will cover the entire back of the phone, so this might not be the final word.


    To make room for its thinner case, the new iPhone will have a new design for its dock connector. Third-party accessory manufacturers will be all over that change. If Apple is going in the direction of a smaller and thinner dock connector, they might be on a mission to making the iPhone incredibly thin.


    With this new design, Apple still needs to do something with the 3.5 mm headset jack. Maybe they’re planning to eliminate it and go with Bluetooth and AirPlay streaming features.

    The business networking website LinkedIn has confirmed reports that some of its users’ passwords have been stolen and leaked on the Internet. According to Finnish security firm CERT-FI, a forum member in Russia has claimed responsibility for stealing 6.46 million encrypted LinkedIn passwords and posting them online.   In fact, with the quad processing power provided by today top brand cell phones and tablets like the:


    The theft of six million LinkedIn passwords


    Apple iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPad 2 and iPad 3


    Blackberry Touch 9900, Blackberry 9790, Blackberry 9360, Blackberry Torch and the Blackberry Playbook

    could have easily been used by the hacker to perpetrate the cybercrime.


    It is recommended that all LinkedIn users change their passwords as a precautionary measure. If you use that same passwords on other sites (as most people do), you should change it on those sites as well.


    We want to provide you with an update on this morning’s reports of stolen passwords. We can confirm that some of the passwords that were compromised correspond to LinkedIn accounts. We are continuing to investigate this situation and here is what we are pursuing as far as next steps for the compromised accounts:


    1. Members that have accounts associated with the compromised passwords will notice that their LinkedIn account password is no longer valid.
    2. These members will also receive an email from LinkedIn with instructions on how to reset their passwords. There will not be any links in this email. Once you follow this step and request password assistance, then you will receive an email from LinkedIn with a password reset link.
    3. These affected members will receive a second email from our Customer Support team providing a bit more context on this situation and why they are being asked to change their passwordsThe theft of six million LinkedIn passwords.

    We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused our members. We take the security of our members very seriously. If you haven’t read it already it is worth checking out my earlier blog post today about updating your password and other account security best practices.

    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.


    Protect your Android devices with the latest innovative protection solutions... stylish top brand cases and skins specifically designed to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.  Discover a wide protection collection for:

    HTC One SHTC One X, HTC One V, HTC EVO 3D, HTC Flyer and HTC Jetstream


    Nokia Lumia 900 and Nokia Lumia 800


    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?
