    For fashionstas, there's celebrity style – be it the latest handbag, designer suit, or ridiculously expensive shoe.


    But for us gadget lovers, there's star tech. We're always dying to know what devices the celebrities are using, and how they dress them up.  So this week, the Pure Mobile blog has scoped out the hottest mobile accessories in Hollywood.


    The good news? You don't have to be rich and famous to steal these stars' gadget style.


    1: Hugh Jackman's lime green iPad case


    We're green with envy for Hugh Jackman's lime iPad case

     


    Judging by his taste for green mobile accessories, you'd think Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman might have preferred to play a different superhero – the Hulk. He was spotted with this bright green iPad case while out and about.


    Well, if he ever needed a data cable to go with it, there's always the Apple-compatible  Fluro Green Sync n' Charge cable from Incase. Now we just need to get him a very small pair of purple pants...


    2: Blake Lively's black hardshell iPad case


    Blake Lively keeps it simple with a black hardshell iPad case

     


    We're not entirely sure who made the black hardshell iPad case Gossip Girl's Blake Lively is toting in this spicture, but our guess is Incipio.


    It defintiely has the look of a signature Incipio accessory and if you wanted to steal Blake's style, Incipio's Lexington HardShell case for iPad 3 in black is pretty much as close as you can get. Plus, it's probably way cheaper than copying her handbag.


    3. Reese Witherspoon's Pink BlackBerry Curve Case


    Lately, Reese Witherspoon has been showing her girly side with a pink BlackBerry Curve skin

     


    Reese Witherspoon likes to switch up her BlackBerry, as well as her smartphone cases.


    Lately she's been seen with an adorable, hot pink rubberized skin for her BlackBerry Curve. Love it? BlackBerry makes a similar rubberized skin in pink and white for girly-girls like Reese, and it coes in at just under five bucks. Style. Stolen.


    4. The President's black leather BlackBerry sleeve


    Presidential elegance: Obama's black leather Blackberry pouch

     


    When you're the President, you can't exactly go flashing a smartphone case with rhinestones on it. Instead, U.S. President Barack Obama keeps it classic, with a black leather Blackberry pocket sleeve on his belt.


    Get the look of Washington's most high-profile figure with the sleek and elegant black Leather Pocket case from BlackBerry. Just don't expect to take over the Oval Office or anything.


    5. Hollywood's obsession with Beats headphones


    Lil Wayne's insane diamond-encrusted Beats by Dr. Dre Headphones

     


    Hollywood, and recording artists in particular, seem to be obsessed with Beats headphones. The Beats by Dr. Dre line includes earbuds too, but it's the over-the-ear Beats models that have racked up a list of celebrity fans like Gwen Stefani, Lebron James, Justin Bieber and tons more.


    Gwen Stefani's more modest Beats headphones lack the precious jewels

     


    Lil Wayne even has a special pair of diamond-encrusted Beats headphones, though we're thinking those are probably pretty hard to come by. Still, you can rock stardom's leading headphones in models that don't cost more than than a king's ransom.


    Oh, Lil Wayne, why you got to be so fresh?

  • The upcoming 2012 Presidential Election is likely to be more closely followed on mobile devices than any other in U.S. history. Voters will be keeping up with the election on their smartphones with polls and political news, as well as on social media.


    But how, exactly, will smartphones figure into this election and, ultimately, who will smartphone owners be voting for?


    Mashable reported on a new study from ad network Mojiva, which surveyed smartphone owners 18 and up to get answers to some of those questions.


    According to Mojiva, people who use smartphones are more likely to vote for Obama on November 6. 47% of those polled said they identify themselves as Democrats, while only 28% identified themselves as Republicans.



    Either way, 82% of respondents said they are planning to vote – a very high rate compared to the actual voter turnout for the past two elections which were below 60%.


    In the lead-up to voting day, more Democrats than Republicans will be reading political news on their smartphones (63% vs. 59%), but more Republicans than Democrats will be researching the candidates (53% vs. 50%).



    Come election day, over half of respondents said that they would be using an iPhone or an Android-powered smartphone to check results throughout the day.


    But many of the respondents said they would use their phone to do even more if they could. When asked if they would use their smartphone to vote if they had the option to, 59% said they would, while a whopping 85% said they would at least consider doing so.



    What about you? Do you plan on using your smartphone to follow the elections? If so, how? Let us know in the comments section.

  • Ashton Kutcher snaps a self-portrait on his new iPhone 5

     


    Not so long ago, when celebrities made an appearance on the red carpet, the talk was of the gorgeous date they had on their arm. But of late, the talk's more likely to be about the new gadget they've got in their hand.


    These days, smartphones are celebrities in their own right. And even in paparazzi shots of famous actors and musicians, they often steal the spotlight. So, which devices have the biggest claim to fame, and what A-listers are using them these days?


    Pure Mobile took a dive into the glitz, the glamor, and the hardware and found out which smartphones stole the lead roles and which have been given bit parts.

    BlackBerry and iPhone – in all its incarnations – seem to be the top celeb cellphone choices.


    Apple not only claims a VIP user-base including Jessica Alba, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Justin Bieber and many more, it's also among the leaders in smartphone market share period. And it just stands to reason that, if millions of ordinary people are dying for the iPhone 5, celebrities might want one too.


    Sure enough, Ashton Kutcher already using one. And Brad Pitt brought his out at Cannes to snap pictures of the event. We can only wonder when pal George Clooney will upgrade from his iPhone 4 so as not to be outdone.

    But while Apple's iPhone is a smash hit outside of Hollywood, BlackBerry maker RIM has been steadily slowing its user growth. Still, that doesn't seem to have affected its popularity amongst actors, celebutantes and other popular figures.


    Not content with using just an iPhone, Kim Kardashian uses a BlackBerry as well, and sometimes uses both at once. Geez, we didn't know she was even able to formulate two thoughts at the same time!

    Eva Longoria does a walk and talk on her BlackBerry

     


    Eva Longoria also loves her BlackBerry, as do Snoop Dogg (err, Lion), Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake – all three like to Tweet from a BlackBerrys. So, even though BlackBerry has lost some of its regular audience to Apple and Samsung, it's still one of the top two in Tinseltown.

    It's pretty much the opposite case with Samsung. Though the smartphone maker is perhaps Apple's biggest rival these days, the few results we got when searching for celebrities with Samsung devices – like the Galaxy Note or Galaxy S III – were actually from events held or promoted by Samsung.


    Sure Ashley Simpson has been spotted with one, but when's the last time anyone even cared she existed? And the Victoria's Secret models shown with the Galaxy Note (above) were actually hired to promote the device.


    Guess whose famous hands are holding this BlackBerry

     


    But who can claim the most famous user? Sure, the word "famous" is subjective, but most would agree that a figure who's known by nearly everyone in nearly every country, has influence on the world stage, and who is important enough to interrupt any T.V. show on any channel whenever he feels like addressing the press would be top choice.


    Yep, we're talking about the President. BlackBerry has scored possibly the most illustrious user a smartphone maker could ever hope for with Barack Obama.


    But it isn't just that President Obama uses a BlackBerry, he absolutely loves it! He's been described as a BlackBerry addict, and actually fought for the right to keep his "CrackBerry" once in office.


    Yes, president Obama has been described as a BlackBerry addict

     


    "They’re going to pry it out of my hands," the New York Times cited him as saying around the time that aides were trying to take it away. He's since been allowed to keep his beloved smartphone, though it had to go through White House encryption standards.


    Also, there's little chance that the President could ever be wooed by Apple. The Washington Times reported that, when handed an iPhone by an aide on the campaign trail last month, he looked "befuddled."


    Obama seemed unused to the device, saying "Oh, I got to dial it in. Hold on, hold on. I can do this. See, I still have a BlackBerry."

  • Obama and his Cell Phone.
    Posted on October 16, 2008 by Pure Mobile

       As we get closer and are now less then 3 weeks away it is getting down to that time.  America votes on November 4, 2008 and like last week we still have that burning question which cell phones do our leaders use?


       Last week we asked the question about John McCain.  This week we are wondering about Barack Obama himself.  We presume that Barack Obama is more technology friendly then John McCain.  Mr. Obama never stated that he doesn’t know how to use a computer or email.  Also Obama is 25 years younger then McCain at 47 years old.


       Now the question is what kind of cell phone does he use?  Is he a smart phone type or a simple make a call type like with a Razr?  Obama looks like a simple man.  He looks like a man that doesn’t get too tied down by technology, even though he is a big advocate for technology.


      For the answer to this question check back next Tuesday for the answer and for a new entry into our blog and until then why not check out our Bluetooth headsets for a safer driving experience
