  • Kyocera has finally decided to enter the Android market by announcing their first Android phone the Zio M6000. The Zio will ship with Android version 1.6. The Zio is a tri-band CDMA EVDO Rev. Which is a handset that supports the 800/1700/1900MHz bands. By utilizing these three bands this makes the Zio compatabile with networks operated by Sprint, Verizon and smaller networks such as Cricket. Other features of the new Android phone by Kyocera include WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. The Zio comes with a 3.5 inch WVGA screen with 800 x 480 pixels. The Zio also features a 3.2 megapixel camera with dedicated camera key and video capture at 30 frames per second. Additional features include a digital compass, accelerometer and support for microSD cards up to 32GB.



    While it is still unknown when any US carriers will offer the Zio it is safe to say that Kyocera is looking to make quite the splash in the Android market. For their first Android phone the Zio is set to be one of the better Android phones on the market. With all of the features that come standard with this particular model the Zio is expected to be a hit in both the US and foreign markets. I am especially excited to check out the digital compass and video capture camera. There are two pretty cool features that most mobile devices do not currently have.


    For their first Android phone it appears as if Kyocera has hit a homerun with the Zio. I will be expecting big things out of them in the future when they learn what more of their consumers are looking for and can incorporate those wishes into newer and more powerful Android phones and for unlocked cell phones.

  • FCC Releases App to Test WiFi Speed
    Posted on March 26, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    Everyone with an ounce of app development experience has come up with something for either the iPhone or the Android, and even the FCC is getting in on the fun.  The purpose of the app, according to their website, is to “provide Americans with additional information about their mobile data connection and create awareness about the mobile broadband connection quality.  While some people might understandably be concerned with an app designed by the Feds installed on their phone, all the app really does is monitor data upload and download speeds.  The FCC is set to release a new national broadband plan on 3/16, which will stress the need for improved cell phone data networks.



    The data collected through this app will analyze geographical coverage and quality throughout the United States, essentially providing them an auditing tool for cell phone carrier claims and commercial coverage maps.  It will also, quite simply, allow the user to see what kind of data speed they are getting from their cell phone carrier in specific locations.  You can also find out the speed of your broadband connection by either turning on your cell phone WiFi, or checking out Broadband.gov.  This information generally isn’t as valuable for you as the end user, as you can’t move a fixed connection for better coverage as you can with a cell phone.

    Tests were recently conducted by the FCC in Seattle and Los Angeles, using a number of phones and carriers, and the results were a little surprising.  Verizon’s Droid in Seattle blew away all other results, registering 3G speeds of 1.71 MBPS downloads and .82 MBPS uploads.  The iPhone in Los Angeles came in with speeds of 1.35 MBPS downloads and .21 uploads, while Google’s Nexus One on T-Mobile in Seattle came in significantly slower at .29 MBPS downloads and .35 MBPS uploads.

  • New Android Phone
    Posted on April 29, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    So Samsung has finally annouced the I7500.  This is going to be there first Android phone and a lot of people are eagerly anticipating the new phone.  The new phone looks rather impressive actually.  It will carry all the standard phone goodies like being a quad band phone, 5 MP Camera, MicroSD support, but it will also have some extras like 8GB of internal memory, Wi-Fi, and even hand writting recognition.


    One cool feature the phone will have is geotagging.  This is a feature that allows you to take a photo and then "tag" the location of where it was taken.


    This will be Samsung's first attempt at a Android phone.  There is going to be some stiff competition as almost all major manufacturers are planning on releasing an Android phone this year.


    The Samsung I7500 so far has been anounced for O2 in Europe but it does support T-Mobile 3G (1700Mhz band) so it does give a suspecion that T-Mobile in the US will be getting it somewhere down the line.


    For now the expected release is some time in June 2009.  Keep checking back our blog for a full review as soon the Samsung I7500 is out for a full review.

    Posted on October 27, 2008 by Pure Mobile

    So this week brings a new phone at PureMobile for us to test out and give our opinion on what we think.  The phone we get to test is Google’s G1 Android Phone.  It’s been a long time coming and the wait has been worth it.



    The phone is sleek and slim weighing in at around 5.6 ounces and measuring approximately 4.6 x 2.1 x 0.6 inches.  The good thing about this small package is that it packs a 3.2 inch touch screen and full QWERTY keyboard that slides out for easier typing.  The screen is bright and easy to see which is definitely a good thing.  The G1 also supports the 3G network for high speed downloads on your phone and can be connected to a local Wi-Fi network also.


    Coming with a 3MP camera the photos look nice but we were disappointed with the lack of options they gave us.  We couldn’t figure out how to lower the quality of the images or resolution so we could save on space.  The phone comes with 60MB of internal memory and a microSD slot to put a card into.  We had no problem using a 16GB card microSD memory card for storage space.



    You also get all the standard things like the ability to use Gmail, Yahoo Messenger and MSN Messenger, which means that we at PureMobile will be able to continue our excellent customer service.


    As for a few downsides we have to say the lack of A2DP or Stereo Bluetooth and a standard 3.5mm head phone jack (why a USB jack?) makes us think that even though the phone has a lot of potential the music capabilities could definitely use some improvements.


    Now for the App Market, which is Google’s store to get new applications to increase the usefulness of your phone, is a good thing.  At the time of writing there are plenty of apps available and more being added all the time.  It leaves a lot of growth for your new phone.  You can download new apps and games all the time.



    From our in-house tests the edge network is faster then it is on the iPhone.


    So overall we are impressed.  It’s a good phone and, being an open platform it looks like, it will only get better.  We would definitely recommend it and can’t wait for the next version of the phone to see what upgrades are included
