  • Ever since the iPhone security bug that was transmitting location of your iPhone 4, several other handsets have had the same issues. Enter into the market a few HTC Android devices that have a similar problem to the iPhone but also goes a step further. It has been reported that there are several security flaws in some pre-installed software that HTC has been including with their Sensation and EVO 3D. There is a silent logging that allows for the following potentially dangerous activities:


    Security Flaw in Several HTC Android devices


    SMS Data and Numbers


    Don’t expect any privacy if you have the unlocked HTC Sensation or the EVO 3D. All your SMS Data and phone numbers are being tracked. They say it is on an anonymous level never having access to the specific names.


    Phone Logs


    Every call you make or receive is also being logged. No longer will wiping your history clear you phone. The information is being transmitted to the logging software that records all the activity.


    GPS Location


    Similar to the Apple unlocked iPhone 4 bug, the location of your phone is always being tracked by GPS and mapping out where it has been since you got the phone. Again this may be on an anonymous level but still important to note.


    More than Just HTC


    Security Flaw in Several HTC Android devicesThe troubling aspect of this security bug is that the information is not limited to HTC. Malicious app developers or curious ones can integrate a feature into the application to tap into your breached data and perhaps using it in ways that are less than ok. There have been no reports of malicious use but be aware that it is possible. The only way to rid yourself of this security flaw is to Root your phone which is not a simple thing that anyone can do.


    HTC has commented on the issue and said that they are trying to resolve the issue in a timely manner. Since the vulnerability has been around for months we expect this issue to be resolves ASAP. There is no telling how many users are affected and the process that will be involved to have the issue fixed.

  • Industry experts are already weighing in on the release of the new Kindle Fire Tablet by Amazon. JP Morgan executives fell that the release falls short of what is needed to make a dent in an industry that is dominated by Apple. Executive director Mark Moskowitz suggests that in order to penetrate the tablet market such as unlocked Motorola Xoom, HTC Flyer, etc , the tablet must be fully loaded and compete with the current tablets available on the market today. He views this release of the Kindle Fire as a stepping stone to getting into the industry full fledged.

    The Amazon Kindle Fire release does not have the specifications of some of the more powerful tablets available. It does however has a price point that is believed will open up the market to a whole new subset of consumers. At $199, more consumers are likely to jump on board as the cost is much lower than the typical $500 price point on the market today. If the JP Morgan executives are right in calling this release a stepping stone, it may be a good strategy to go with as sales of the Kindle Fire may be better than other entries in the past.


    Mixed Review of the Amazon Kindle FireBy no means is Amazon resting their success on Kindle Fire. There are already reports of Amazon working on a more powerful Quad-Core tablet codenamed “Hollywood”. This release will likely mark the official entry of Amazon into the tablet space. Expected to release in the first quarter of 2012, the tablet will include the proprietary offerings that Amazon has within their businesses including eBooks, Movies, Music, and the Cloud services. They do have some very interesting services they can include with their tablets which gives them an edge over all others that have entered the space. The next 12 months or so will give us a clue as to their long term plans in an ever crowded space.

  • Through filing by the FCC, it appears that Sprint is set to launch a new phone to their Android lineup. The goes by the name of the ZTE N860 which is not the greatest of names but as with others will probably change once it get closer to actually being released to the public.


    Sprint To Launch The  ZTE N860 - Gets FCC Approval


    Specifications of the device are not known, the only reference available online are a photo or two showing what the mobile phone looks like. Based on the photo, it appears that the phone is on the medium scale in terms of features as the user interface appears detailed enough suggesting a lot of features are included on the phone.


    Sprint To Launch The  ZTE N860 - Gets FCC ApprovalThe interesting thing about this release is that it marks the first time that a major national mobile carrier will carry an Android phone manufactured by ZTE. There has been a ZTE phone released in the past but that was on a local level when cricket released the ZTE Score. This could be a sign of things to come since ZTE is readily available in other countries around the world.


    ZTE may not be a commonly known name to date. Rest assured that they will soon be as common as some of the other well known brands. In fact, Microsoft has officially made ZTE an official Windows Phone Mango partners licensed to use it. With back to school in full swing and the holiday season around the corner, this release is the beginning of what will be a steady stream of phones getting approval from the FCC and Bluetooth SIG.


    There have been times where these FCC approvals do not end up getting released. The fact that the landscape of the industry changes fast does not guarantee it will be released.

  • Isis, which is a company that has been put together by a number of different carriers including AT&T, T-Mobile as well as Verizon, has had support flash of them by a number of device manufacturing companies including me venture Isis. The carrier led venture is one that is looking to really centralize the support for the NFC technology and take it to an entirely new level. All of the handset makers are now committed to introducing handsets that will include the Isys NFC related technology standards. They’re going to be representing a number of different carriers, and having the device manufacturing companies on board with the launch of the service is big news for them because it allows them to have a wider reach throughout the community. Other companies have also tried to launch their own services including Google with the recently launched Google Wallet program which is available for Android handsets such as Unlocked Samsung Infuse, Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, etc...


     


    Mobile Manufacturers Pledge Support to NFC Tech Isis Company


    The technology that Isis uses is certainly going to become more popular in the coming months and weeks. Being able to pay for objects with a swipe of your mobile device is something that I think that a lot of people would like to have by their sides. Being able to bring it to as many people as possible is something that mobile carriers are likely looking to do. However, they’re not going to be able to do so without first getting as many companies on board with it as possible.


     


    Bringing this NFC technology to the forefront is ideal for the companies involved and will definitely be able to change the outlook of the general public in a more quick way. If they are not able to get the public knowledgeable about what this technology is, then quickly implementing it will be tougher than you think.

  • The Massachusetts Atty. Gen. Martha Coakley recently stated that she has had her iTunes  account compromised for IOS devices such as unlocked iphone 4, ipad by what she thinks are thieves, and is looking to Apple for answers on the breach. It is currently not clear how the thieves were able to get their way into her account, some believe that it may have been through an application that allowed the hackers to continue to steal her credit card information and go and make fraudulent purchases with that information. She brought out the attack during a speech that she was making at the Massachusetts Advanced Cyber Security Center, during which he stated that a number of companies quickly helped her through the process of dealing with stolen credit card information, but made it sound as if Apple did not play a part in the process. This comes as a bit of a surprise as Apple has made it there priority to improve the security of their devices and also allow their users more freedom. It is not currently clear what kind of reaction Google had when they learned of her credit card information being stolen.


    Mass. Attorney General Wants Answers following iTunes Breach


    The attorney general went on to say that you believe that the company had created a substantial risk of identity theft if people were able to get into account so easily. You can take security seriously want, but if people are able to get into your account by utilizing information stealing applications, then you have to do that there are always going to be issues with identity and other information getting into the wrong hands.


     


    There has been no public reaction by the company at this time, and they are expected to play close to the head. They likely did not want to address the accusations that she is made at this time and instead will do an internal investigation. It will be interesting to see how both companies continue to pursue this case and investigation moving forward.

    As of right now there are going to be no limitations on what you can borrow from the library title wise, and users are going to be able to see the real page number so that they are going to be able to synchronize notes.

Giving you access to these free books will definitely increase the number of people that are willing to utilize their new service. Amazon is looking to position themselves in the same way that Barnes & Noble has been as far as being able to utilize their huge reach to become a major player in the book space.

  • HTC has come to a deal with Dropbox, the popular cloud storage company, and is going to be able to allow users to utilize the service with some of their new phones. They will be offering up to 5 GB of free storage on unlocked HTC (Sense 3.5) phones that are sold. This deal shows a new strategy for Dropbox, one that relies heavily on targeting specific phones for launches.


    HTC Gets New DropBox Deal, Offers Space On New Devices


    This should be added incentive for users to sign-up with the company and to also get the new phone from HTC. Adding additional deals like this definitely make her a more popular and will help the company continued to grow moving forward into the future. This new deal probably will not make it their highest selling phone of all time, but it will undoubtedly give consumers another reason to purchase the device.


     


    The first device that is going to be released that is going to have this new feature it is going to be the HTC RHYME. There is no current concrete release date for this device you can just expected to become available at some point in the very near future. The deal between HTC and Dropbox is one that will probably be duplicated at some point in the very near future with other devices. It shows that both companies are looking to expand and are looking to make deals with other providers in order to add incentives and value to their products.

    HTC Sense


    The HTC and Dropbox deal it’s going to be over-the-top and will allow them to put together a good plan for users. They’re going to have to quickly and efficiently market this to possible consumers in order to be able to draw more users to their new devices. HTC has positioned themselves as one of the top providers for high quality smart devices.

  • RIM Stock Prices Reach New Low
    Posted on September 26, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    RIM Stock Prices Reach New LowThe company Research In Motion has been in a real hurry to turn things around and get back the market share that they once had. However, it has become increasingly clear that they are struggling more than ever. They’re underwhelming quarters to earnings report last week really hurt the company and has driven down their stock to a low that they have never seen before at $21.52. It is the lowest that they have been in the last five years. Previous to this, the previous low that the company had was last August but even then, it was still eight cents higher than it is now. It has become increasingly clear that the overall investor confidence in the company is slipping, and the company has been unable to turn things around and regain the profits that they once had.


     


    As a result, the company went on to release as many as seven new Blackberry devices, and despite the promising sales, it does not seem to bolster their stock price at this time. It will be interesting to see if they are able to regain the confidence of their shareholders and to get enough cash flow back into the company to make a real run at regaining market share that they once had. At one point, it looked as if Research In Motion in their Blackberry devices were going to take over the market, unlocked iPhone 4 seem to be able to secure a large number of different carriers and as a result through at a much faster rate.


    RIM Stock Prices Reach New Low


    Blackberries typically have the reputation of being a business minded phone and are a part of the working world, but that has really held back Research In Motion from being able to garner a larger audience. They have been able to put together an excellent array of choices, but that does not necessarily mean that their rebirth is going to be as successful as they had once hoped.

  • Men Looks to Find Best of Smart Devices
    Posted on September 18, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Finding what the users think is the best of everything is a little bit harder than you would think. Finding what users like the most is something that many companies strive to do but few are able to capitalize on. Now, the company is looking to find the best of everything. They’re going to be looking at all of the different devices and the different uses that they have to find the best of everything with a smart interface.


    Smartphones


    They will be taking a look at a number of different devices to figure out which ones have the smartest interfaces of all. The new application for devices such as unlocked HTC Sensation, Samsung Infuse, etc.. That they have launched asks users questions, and allows people to either agree or disagree with them straight from the market price.


     


    They have beta tested a number of different ways for users to be able to do this and have also have been able to make some serious improvements in a number of user feedback on average that they receive. Being able to put together an application that is able to ask users about their favorite of anything is something that could seriously yield a lot of information. It can also yield them a lot of advertising dollars if they are able to go about it in the right way. User interface design is something that is becoming huge talking point within the mobile community over the course of the last few years, and it appears that this application is looking to really perform in moving forward in a way that made sense for everyone.


     


    The large number of different designs that they have tested out throughout the beta shows that they’re really looking for the best interface for their framework to run on. Constantly asking your users about what their favorite star makes it a little bit harder to put together a usable user interface than you would likely imagine.

  • The iPhone 5 is a device that has received a lot of attention, but no one quite expected it to live up to the hype that was the unlocked iPhone 4. The iPhone 4 was the best-selling smart device in the world in was released just 14 months ago, but now it appears that the iPhone 5 is in a position to surpass it easily. According to a number of different surveys conducted by analytics companies including the RBC Capital Markets Company that it’s been able to accurately predict market trends over the course of the last few years within the mobile market.


    Apple iPhone 5 Draws Bigger Crowds Than the iPhone 4


    The survey also stated that 66% of the currently existing iPhone owners are planning to upgrade to the newest version of the device. This comes as a bit of a surprise since the upgrades for the device in the beginning anyway, the phone was not supposed to be a major upgrade over the previous version of the device. The demand has come as a bit of a surprise to the company and the fact that they are seeing such a demand.


     


    The Apple iPhone 5 is a device that has become insanely popular over the course of the last few months since the phone was first announced by the company. Since that time they announced that the updates that the phone will be receiving are going to be even more then was seen over the previous upgrade of the device. This has brought many people to decide to give the iPhone 5 a try. It is apparent that the device is going to be able to exceed the demand that the company thought that it was going to, and continues to rise in popularity around the world. The phone is one that has exceeded the expectations of many and seems to be on a path to becoming one of the most popular devices ever released.
