  • The Samsung App Store for unlocked cell phone such as Samsung Captivate i897, Samsung Nexus S unlocked, etc.. has a bit of a head start over other application stores because they operate on both cell phones and on televisions, but that is not stopping the company from issuing a statement that their app store has officially passed the one hundred million download mark. The mark is a huge one that is exclusive to only a few other app stores in the industry, and even though Samsung crosses through both the mobile and television industry with their app downloads, that does not make the number any less impressive.


     


    It has been ten months since the service first launched. It looks as though Europe is the primary downloading location for users of the Samsung app store. France had the largest number of downloads of any country, with Germany and Spain following closely behind. The three countries together combined to account for more than forty percent of the overall number of downloads from the Samsung App Store since it was first launched more than ten months ago.



    The app store is currently home to more than 13,000 applications. This number is smaller than most for unlocked BlackBerry Bold 9780, Torch 9800, etc.. other app stores, but is only seven thousand apps behind the BlackBerry App World store which recently hit the 20,000 mark. The Samsung App Store has quietly grown over the course of the last few months and has become one of the more popular app providers on the Internet. It will be interesting to see if they are able to keep up their huge rate of growth moving forward, or if they will slow down as so many other app stores have. The numbers that they announced are quite large for only having been around for the last ten months, but are still not touching the numbers of some of the more popular app stores, such as the Apple iTunes app store and the Android App Marketplace.

  • Motorola cell phone maker has announced that they have acquired the Swedish TV software company Dreampark. This could meant hat the company is looking to add to their TV technology with the acquisition and get deeper in that market. That acquisition is not expected to come to a final close until the second quarter of 2011, and so far details of the acquisition have not been made public yet. Motorola will look to use their Dreamgallery and other technology from the company and place them in the software suite offered by the company, Motorola Medios.


     


    The press release suggested that the acquisition was completely for their Motorola Medios software suite, but the company has developed a number of other technologies that certainly could find some sort of use in other arenas of Motorola as well.


     


    Once the transaction is completely closed, Dreampark will be integrated into their business and will cease to exist as its own entity. The purchase will allow the company to have a broader portfolio and will also allow them to increase their customer base moving forward.


    It will contesting to see what kind of technologies come about as a result of the acquisition. There were no rumors about Motorola looking at DreamPark previous to this and it seemed to come out of nowhere from an industry standpoint. Could this be a start of flurry of acquisitions for their software suite, or will this single acquisition be enough for the company moving forward.


     


    “This transaction enables us to continue to enhance our Medios software portfolio and capitalize upon the convergence of wireless technology,” said the Motorola VP John Burke, who addressed the media following the announcement of the acquisition. This seems to be in the best interest of both companies and shows that Motorola is dedicated to making sure that their software suite is packed chalk-full of useful software.

  • Although T-Mobile was recently acquired by AT&T, still many fans were anticipating the release of the T-Mobile LG G2x that was first seen during the CTIA Wireless 2011. The device will run the Android 2.2 operating system and has amazing specs that make the small device extremely quick. The device will feature a dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor that will be more than enough to power the operating system and then some. The applications during the hands on seemed as if they opened up and then closed seemingly instantly. The 4G network will also help to speed up the browsing of websites, creating an all-around very quick machine.



    The G2X phone feels great in the end, and has the specs that match some of the top devices int eh space that are being released over the course of the next few months. One of the biggest complaints is that the screen seems to really hold fingerprints quite well. The device will also feature an 8 megapixel camera, which is above the curve in terms of phones with these devices.


     


    Although T-Mobile has seemingly reached its end and will become a part of the AT&T network at some point in all likelihood, that does not mean that the G2x will not be one of hte most impressive phones released this year - that much is already clear from the hands on that was granted. The device will easily be one of the fastest available, the the company has managed to keep the battery life manageable.


    Watch for the company to continue to expand the number of top notch smart devices that they offer moving forward. This is one of a few top tier smart devices that have been rumored to be coming to T-Mobile prior to the merger. It is not clear if these devices will be absolved into the AT&T brand name, or if the company will allow T-Mobile to continue to operate under its own name for the time being. From the hands on it is clear that the G2x will be one of the top flight smart devices in the world moving forward.

  • Unlocked Motorola Atrix 4G Review
    Posted on March 23, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The Unlocked Motorola Atrix 4G is a device that has received a lot of attention in recent months. The smart device will have a number of high profile accessories that will allow the device to dock to both laptops and phones. It is easily the most versatile device on the market today. It will double as a laptop, desktop computer, set top box and smart phone, all in one device. It features a 4 inch,  960 x 540 display that will make it unlike any other device out there on the market.


     


    It has certainly surpassed the expectations of many. The design of hte phone is one of its weakest points, with most of hte case being made out of plastic. However, that does not mean that it is not put together quite solidly, and it is quite hard to break. It also features both USB and HDMI ports on the left side of the phone. The back of the phone features a rear facing five megapixel camera that comes complete with LED flash. The speakers are lcoated on the bottom side of the phone.



    The battery life of th ephone is one of its strongest selling points. Although it will not last as long as other smart devices, the large number of features in conjunction with its ability to last more than 24 hours on a single charge with moderate use. The Motorola Atrix 4G unlocked has been a highly anticipated phone since some of the original features were announced, and it seems to have delivered on nearly everything that was promised. We were pleasantly surprised with the speed of the device, and the fact that it has so many accessories which extend the use of the device make it truly one of a kind, and should help it to become one of the most sought after devices in 2011 with ease.

  • Logitech was recently seen hiring Android developers for what they described as a ground breaking upcoming release. While it is not currently clear whether or not this is the groundbreaking release they referenced, the company is releasing a new Squeezebox app for Android users such as unlocked Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, LG Eve GW620, etc  that will allow users to remotely control their Squeezebox. The app will utilizes a Wi-Fi connection and will allow users to use all of the usual controls that were not previously available in remote format.


     


    The app will also utilize the album artwork for whatever music you are playing at the current time. It will be interesting to see if htis is the groundbreaking release that they previously referenced. The app will only be available for Android 2.1 or later. The app will reportedly work with the Squeezebox Touch, Squeezebox Boom and Squeezebox Duet.



    The app is already available in the market, and more details can be found on the Logitech website, outlining all of the different uses that are included in the application. A full description is available there as well. It is good to see Logitech releasing applications for the Squeezebox which is a device that has received a lot of press over the course of the last few months, and many users were eagerly awaiting the release of an official remote app, since the device primarily works as an end-table music provider.


     


    Now Logitech fans can start speculating about the hiring of the android developers. The description of the job on their website seemed to suggest a much larger project than a simple remote app, but the company has not had many releases within the Android market so this could be the project that they were referencing after all. Logitech will probably not publicly address the issue, especially if this is not the project that they were referencing.

  • The tablet market has been heating up in recent weeks. With Apple successfully launching their unlocked iphone 4 and iPad 2 device to much critical acclaim, it appears as if SamSung is attempting to match, if not surpass the features that hte ocmpany offered with the upgraded version of the iPad. They have announced their new Galaxy Tab lineup that they have called the “thinnest mobile tablets” in the world at this time. The new tablets will have both 10.1 inch and 8.9 inch displays. These tablets will be a bit thinner than the iPad, and will be only 8.6 millimeters in width, and will weigh only 595 grams, which is much less than other tablets. The smaller, 8.9 inch display version will only weigh a total of 470 grams, which is nearly as little as some of the heavier smart phones out on the market.


    The devices will run on Android 3.0 honeycomb and will have a 1GHz dual core processor. The rear camera on the devices will be three megapixels and will also feature a 2 megapixel front facing camera that is able to record videos up to 1080p HD. All in all,t eh recently announced devices surpass the expectations of the users that have been eagerly awaiting the next version of the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy ( Tab).



    They are clearly following in Apple’s footsteps in an attempt to make the tablets as light and thin as possible to make them easily mobile. The 16 GB model of the 10.1 inch screen will cost $499, while the 32 GB will cost $599 total. The 16 GB model of the 8.9 inch model will cost a total of $469 while the 32 GB version will cost $569, which is a big discount over previous versions of the device, with only a slightly smaller screen.

  • AT&T Makes Calling Japan Free
    Posted on March 16, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    With the recent issues that Japan has faced following the fallout of an 8.9 earthquake and the ensuing tsunami afterwards, AT&T has announced that they are going to allow their unlocked cell phone users to make free calls to Japan till the end of the month. Since the disaster, understandably, it has been very hard for people to contact relatives inside of the country. Making outgoing calls within Japan has also been difficult. Some of those from North America that survived the quake have still not been able to make contact with their families.


     


    The announcement by the company is the first of its kind. Shortly after the announcement by AT&T, both Sprint and Verizon announced that they were going to be extending the same offer to their users as well. They also announced that they were not going to charge users for text message fees to phones that are located within Japan.



    It is good to see that these huge providers are stepping up and making it as easy as possible for people to contact family members a world away. With the issues that Japan has had in recent days with both outgoing and incoming calls, this should ease the minds of those back in the states a little bit who were worried about charges that could pile up when they try to make contact with individuals in the Japan area.



    Text messages might be the best way to try to communicate, at least until things calm down. This will allow them to answer whenever the text goes through and will not require that they answer a call that may or may not go through. The announcements are welcome, and show that to these companies - it is not always all about the bottom line and profit that they could potentially see from a move.

  • It looks as though Hewlett Packard is quite serious about using WebOS in their PC’s. The company has long been rumored to be condiering adding that functionality to their PC’s, but the announcement was made by the CEO, Leo Apotheker that all HP personal computers will start working with both Web OS as well as Microsoft Windows starting next year. The company said that they were trying to find a reason for developers to have incentive to developer new apps for the platform, which is used on many HP unlocked cell phones and printers.



    Right now, the software sector is digging a 2 percent hole in their finances, which is slowing the company down in their investments. It will be interesting to see if this move convinces more people to create software for webOS now that it will be included on personal computers.



    This does not mean that HP personal computers will not have the ability to use Windows 7. In fact, the software will still come loaded on the machine, but will not be the only option available. Apparently, the company is looking to make their WebOs just as available as the windows installation and allow users to switch from one to the other. It certainly is a bit of an interesting strategy and is not one that we have seen employed by really any companies that are taking part in the Mobile revolution. Look for WebOs to gain some popularity from this move, but who knows if it is really enough to help the company deal with not having any development companies that are interested in developing software for their platform.

  • The Get Jar app store is one that has become increasingly popular in recent months. While the Opera mini application might have been one of the favorites of their unlocked cell phone users, that did not stop the app store from removing the app from their app store. The Opera app has been surprisingly popular with many of their users. However, while GetJar claims that there is no malicious reasoning behind their decision to get rid of the app from their app store, some have speculated if it was not a competition based move.



    Shortly after the removal, the company decided that they were going to respond to these inquiries in a letter to their users. They apologized and said that they did not tak the decision to remove Opera Mini Browser lightly. They had more than 30 million downloads of the app in total over the course of the last few years when they decided to remove it.


     


    They claimed that they decided that their decision to remove to app was because they needed to continue making money, and the number of downloads that he app was receiving was simply too much for them to handle. It is not often that you hear a tech company admits their shortcomings, but this appeared to be the situation today when GetJar removed Opera Mini from their app store.



    They were very open with their reasoning behind the removal, and you can not really fault them for just doing what is best for their business in the long run. They have been able to be open with their processes and transparent so that users are not able to scream foul play. After all, it is not foul play when you admit the true reasoning behind your decision and it makes perfect sense.

  • Developer Spacetime Studios, the company that is responsible for making the game Pocket Legends, a unique MMO mobile game that is increasing the expectations for other MMO games that attempt to make the jump to mobile devices. As of right now, Android has overtaken Unlocked BlackBerry cell phone such as Bold 9780, Torch 9800 unlocked, etc.  what most people consider the most prestigious smart phone operating platform across the nation.


     


    The company has beaten the odds. While most developers claim that the Android market and other mobile platforms do not give them enough options to compete with the top companies in the space. After some internal research, Spacetime Studios discovered that they make up to 50 percent more from their Android users when compared to the iOS market.



    The ability for users to more easily purchase Android apps might be behind the spike when compared to iOS in iphone 4 unlocked. iOS does not have the easy to use platform that Google has brought to the table.


     


    So while some developers are finding that they are unable to compete in the mobile gaming market given the current structure of app marketplaces, that does not mean that there are not other companies that are able to find the niche that they are looking for, especially with Android users which do seem to differ substantially with users from the iOS platform, both in how they use their devices but also in what their general interests are.


    It will be interesting to see if other mobile gaming developers release their figures based on a by system basis. That could potentially shed more light on the industry as a whole. Instead o hearing these isolated negative remarks, it would be nice to know how the industry as a whole feels. It seems to be very dependant on the type of the game as well as the number of titles that the given country has going for it.
