  • So it's been a long time coming but it looks like in September Max OS X users will finally get BlackBerry Desktop Manager.  All this comes from MobileCrunch.com


    The nice thing is that Mac users will finally be able to sync their Blackberrys to their computer for various things.  They will be able to back up their contacts, do transfers when they buy a new phone, sync your iTunes play list, add / remove software.  Plus you will be able to update your Blackberry right from the computer


    So this is great news.  Granted it's taken many years considering Blackberrys and Mac have both become very popular, but better late then never, right?

  • US soldiers deployed in Iraq can now get language assistance from an iPhone or Blackberry.  Sakhr Software, a company specializing in translation software, is porting its translation technology to work on mobile smart phone devices. It recently developed a tool for the iPhone to enable speech to speech translation. What this means is that you could speak directly into the phone in English and have the phone speak back to you in Arabic.  Furthermore, it displays the translation in both Arabic and English characters allowing you to attempt to pronounce it correctly.  Quite impressive!!

    For the time being, it seems that the technology had been built to serve the US Department of Defense, to help bridge the communication gap between deployed soldiers and locals of the Middle East and ensure diplomacy is preserved in the field as well as avoid accidents due to miscommunication.  We can't wait to see this available to the civilian market where anyone can tour any street in a small town in say Egypt, and be able to communicate directly with the locals.

  • So according to BerryReview.com it looks like RIM is finally upgrading its support for Gmail.  It seems that there is a beta of an Enhanced Gmail Plug-In currently being tested internally at RIM.


    This means better Gmail support.  If anyone has ever used, or tried to use Gmail on their Blackberry they will know that altought it works through BIS you can't really do much.  You can't archieve, star, you can't even report a email as spam.  Well all this will hopefully be fixed in the new plug-in.


    So now it's just a matter of time, but it looks like Blackberry will finally be doing something about their Gmail support so that means all Curve, Pearl, Bold, etc... users can finally rejoice

  • Seinfeld Rips On Blackberry
    Posted on June 2, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    So we came across this interview that Jerry Seinfeld did on Late Night with Conan O'Brian.  Jerry just makes fun of Blackberry users.  You've got to watch the video below to see what we mean.  Also stick it out to the end because he doesn't like iPhone people either.


    We all know Jerry isn't being serious but this is a must watch for anyone who uses or even doesn't use a Blackberry or iPhone

  • So thanks to both BoyGeniusReport.com and Crackberry.com it looks like we have another new Blackberry coming sometime this year.  We've already heard about a Storm 2 coming out sometime this year and the Curve 8520, but not it looks like we have the Blackberry Onyx coming this year too.


    The Blackberry Onyx is also being called the Driftwood and it is said to be part of the 96xx series of phones.  This means that it is going to be a 3G phone and from the looks of the pictures it looks more like a Curve then a Bold.


    From what is being said by BoyGeniusReport.com it looks like it will have some decent specs


     


    • AWS 1700MHz + 2100MHz UMTS/HSDPA
    • 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera
    • GPS
    • Wi-Fi
    • QWERTY keyboard
    • Optical trackpad
    • 480×360 screen
    • Carbon fiber-esque back battery cover (the whole back is a carbon fiber pattern apparently)

     


    The Onyx seems to have the same specs to the Curve 8900 and it's going to have 3G for T-Mobile in the US and it does seem like it will ship with the optical track ball that was introduced to everyone last week on teh Curve 8520.


    The real question now is does RIM have too many phones on the market.  Recently with the Bold 9000, Curve 8900, Pearl 8220 Flip, Curve 8520, Curve 83xx, Pearl 81xx,  and now the Onyx 96xx we are selling a lot of phones on the market.  Only time will tell how any of them will do but at present the Bold and Curve 8900 are some of the nicest ones RIM has produced to date.

  • So RIM has been on a real hot streak recently.  They have been releasing a lot of phones recently, with the Bold, Storm and Curve 8900 no one can say they haven't been able to get their fix and now it looks like they are releasing another Blackberry phone.


    This one is set to be a "low-end" phone.  The new phone, Blackberry Curve 8520, looks to be released in the next few months as it is in testing phase now.  The new Curve will be an upgrade to the old 8300 line but won't be as full featured as the higher end Curve 8900.


    There was a full review done over at Crackberry with a testing unit.  They down a full review and include that the specs for the phone are:


    • Edge device
    • 320 by 240 display
    • 256 megabytes of internal memory (same as 8900)
    • 1150mAh battery
    • 2 megapixel camera, no flash

    Alright so there aren't many specs known at this point, but the phone is still in testing so more feature might become available later one.  Some interesting things mentioned in the article though about the Curve 8520 are


    • No flash for the camera
    • No charging pins
    • No standard trackball

    The above features all seem like they will be missing from the Blackberry Curve 8520.  Most notably the trackball has been replaced by an optical trackball.  Basically they got rid of the ball and made it a sensor.  According to the article the implementation of it on the Curve 8520 seems to be pretty smooth.  


    Also another new feature is dedicated media buttons to play and pause your music on the phone.


    The phone's casing is also "rubberized" which should make it a little more resistant to being dropped.  


    So the big question now are when will it be released?  The fact that it is now being tested does show that it shouldn't be too much longer.  Hopefully sooner then later we will be able to see this lower end Blackberry cell phone hit the market to give people another option.

  • Where Cell Phones Are Going
    Posted on December 16, 2008 by Pure Mobile

    This year has seen some major leaps forward in the mobile handheld industry.


    In a recent article by PCMag this is exactly what they discussed


    ...[j]ust two years ago, the mobile phone market was pretty ho-hum. You had your candy bar phones and your flip phones. There were BlackBerry devices and Windows Mobile phones. Those phones had calendars and contact lists, and a few other apps that were too annoying to use. Few people ever added any new applications to their phones. Surfing the Web was for emergency use only, since it was slow and ugly.


    Fast forward to this year. You've got the must-have iPhone. For open source fans, there's the Android phone. The idea of shopping for, buying and downloading new apps isn't remotely unusual. Browsing online means seeing Web sites that look just like they do on a computer.


    It's the ultimate dream of the mobile phone industry, but it wasn't created by the mobile phone industry -- the dream was actualized by outsiders. The result is that today, the traditional phone makers are playing catch-up and some are in such a struggle to do so that their future existence is uncertain.


    What it means is that since the Apple iPhone was released in July of 2007 the cell phone industry hasn't been the same.  We've gone from regular old phones like the Motorola Razr that really had one function to phones like the upcoming Nokia N97, which does just about everything your heart could desire.


    More and more people are expecting more from their phones.


    ...Avi Greengart, analyst at Current Analysis, sees a fundamental shift in the mobile industry that has only just begun. "We've gone from an era of hardware design where all you needed was something pretty to an era of software design where people expect to do more with their phones," said Greengart.


    People still care about the look of the phone.  The "pretty" factor still exists, but not as much as before.  People want a good looking phone that does what they want.  People are no longer happy with being able to have their phone sound an alarm in the morning to wake them up.  They want to be able to go on Facebook, send email, play games, and sync to their computers.


    What does the future hold for cell phones we can only wait and see.  If it continues to progress as it is now there is no telling what we can expect.
