    Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G LTE smartphones have been sprung from U.S. Customs. Sprint announced it will immediately begin shipping HTC EVO 4G LTE pre-orders to customers who placed their orders through the Sprint website.  Sprint announced in a forum post this week that the phones should be in these customers’ hands on or around May 24th.

    According to Sprint, the EVO 4G LTE was originally slated to be released on May 18, but was delayed in U.S. customs due to a “review of shipments that is required after an ITC exclusion order.”


    The exclusion order resulted from a court ruling handed down last year. HTC was accused of violating 10 patents held by Apple. The judge ruled in favor of Apple in the case, and required HTC to make changes to the software in its EVO 4G LTE and HTC One X devices that were headed to the U.S. (HTC’s violation specifically involved the process of tapping a phone number in an email to launch the phone’s dialer to call a number.)

    US Customs Release HTC EVO 4G LTE Sprint Now Taking Preorders


    The exclusion order went into effect on April 19. U.S. Customs finally pulled both the HTC One X and EVO 4G LTE for inspection last week. HTC had acknowledged the review, and issued a statement reading in part, “We believe we are in compliance with the ruling and HTC is working closely with customs to secure approval.” Approval apparently has been granted, at least for the EVO 4G LTE device. No word on the status of the HTC One X, but we’ll keep you posted.


    Customers will be sent a shipping confirmation email with a tracking number as soon as their devices ship. Check the status of pre-orders on Sprint’s website.


    HTC and Sprint aren’t saying when EVO 4G LTE devices will be available in retail stores. Those who snapped up pre-order deals from Amazon or Best Buy will most likely have to wait a few extra days before their handsets are delivered, too.

    More and more gamers are using tablets as their main gaming consoles... the iPad 3 with its  breakthrough retina display, Samsung Galaxy Tab, HTC Flyer and Motorola Xoom are among the gamers' the favored devices.


    Unlike its console and PC counterpart game, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (which is also launching this week), Ghost Recon Commander is not a 3D first person shooter but a 2D version of the series.


    Watch the following short debut trailer :



     


    Ghost Recon Commander has an overhead viewpoint with social elements like players being given the option to team up with their Facebook friends to form alliances and complete missions. The Facebook game is also integrated with the console game, allowing players to unlock characters, and earn points and currency that can be used in both games.

Unlocks and other features that are provided in the Facebook environment can be used to unlock features within console and PC versions.


    Games aren’t new territory for Facebook. The site is filled with social and casual games like AngryBirds and FarmVille. While Facebook followers have made these games incredibly popular, there haven’t been any titles to attract the hardcore gaming crowd. With the release of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Commander, Ubisoft wants to change that.

    What a difference a year makes: smartphone users dominate the market


    According to a report released by Nielsen, this is the first time that more than half of all mobile customers in the U.S. own a smartphone. That's up a whopping 38% from a year ago.


    With Android and iOS accounting for more than 80% of the U.S. market, smartphones are changing the way people use their handsets. Smartphone users are spending 39 minutes per day using their apps, up 10% from a year ago. The number of apps downloaded to Apple iPhone and Google Android devices grew 28% over the past year to an average of 41 apps per phone.

    A Google study also released Wednesday found that 26% of U.S. smartphone owners would rather give up their computer than their smartphone -- a sign that smartphones are truly becoming mini-PCs.


    Despite the increase of apps, smartphone owners spend roughly the same amount of time using them each day:  37 minutes in 2011, compared to 39 minute in 2012.


    Facebook, YouTube, Android market (now Google Play Store), Google Search and Gmail remain the top five most-used apps, according to Nielsen. That isn't particularly surprising, since all of those apps except for Facebook are pre-loaded onto most Android devices.

  • Nokia Lumia 900 Announced at CES
    Posted on January 13, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    By Megan Fleet


    Nokia Lumia 900 Announced at CESAh, Nokia – you are fast becoming a breath of fresh air! Sure, dumping Symbian for Windows as a mobile OS was a little harsh, but who can’t see the vividly dramatic humor in that? So in this week of consumer tech euphoria, what did Nokia dish out? A little love to its prospective customers in the United States: the first Nokia cell phone, the Lumia 900 4G LTE which was designed specifically with the US in mind.


    Let’s be honest – this is a striking phone. Not only does it have a 4.3 inch Clearblack AMOLED display, the polycarbonate shell (available in cyan and black) is indeed both “bold and beautiful.” As this device was designed with the States in mind and is sporting Nokia’s new mobile OS alliance, Windows, it is no surprise that this model will be exclusive to AT&T when it is released. Unfortunately for customers tied to other network carriers, this smartphone is not to be released unlocked.  Let our  trend setting fashionable cases and skin accessories express your unique style.  Make your mobile devices stand out.  Customize your look - how cool can you be?


     


    The inner workings and benefits of the Windows OS (People Hub, Live tiles etc) will override some customer concerns about the exclusivity with AT&T. Sporting 4G speed, a long lasting 1830 mAh battery, a typical 16GB of storage (and for flexible storage options, supplementary memory cards are an option) and a 8MP camera, this device may well be the preference for AT&T customers considering the “aggressive pricing” we are being advise to anticipate when the Lumia 900 is made available later this year.  Discover an extensive selection of the latest lithium technology replacement cell phone and wireless devices batteries.  Ensure your device is powered by brand name batteries for longer operating life.


    Nokia Lumia 900 Announced at CESI will say that the mobile app to connect to AT&T’s U-Verse as a remote is pretty darn neat. As is the Nokia Drive app to give customers free GPS capabilities. For gamers, rock a great set of headphones or ear pieces and soak in some bragging rights. Nokia’s partnership with EA will bring over 20 of the most popular games to the Windows Phone marketplace. Of course, the Nokia Lumia devices will be the first to benefit from this liaison.  Enhance your mobility and turn your device into a power tool!  Discover select accessories such as; stylus & pens, micro SD memory cards, batteries, docking stations, Bluetooth headsets, data cables and glider gloves all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    With a great start to 2012, Jeff Bradley, senior vice president of devices for AT&T surmised the year’s goals beautifully: “Together, we are working to supercharge the ecosystem around the Nokia Lumia 900 and the Windows Phone platform.”

    Nokia Press Conference at 2012 Consumer Electronics Show Exhibits Global Momentum The Consumer Electronics Show this week in Vegas is shaping up to be a great soapbox for reintroducing the feature phone king, Nokia, to the global competitive stage of smartphones. Beginning with an agreement with Microsoft last year, the Finnish company is placing its initial bets on the United States market and its partnership with Microsoft.


    During Nokia’s press conference at CES, the audience was treated to more news about the Nokia line up of smartphones. Also mentioned is how the Windows mobile OS pairs with Nokia specific apps for a top notch customer experience. To top off the conference, there was a glimpse of the AT&T exclusive partnership in store for US customers (looks as though at least the Lumia 900 will not be unlocked).


    As the Lumia 900 will be its flagship 4G LTE phone in the US, this is not surprising. The flip side is that the Lumia 710 launched with T-Mobile last year may now be fair game to be made available as an unlocked device to appease customers who prefer to choose their carrier and their smartphone.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Discover the latest innovative protection solutions... stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases specifically designed to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    Nokia Press Conference at 2012 Consumer Electronics Show Exhibits Global Momentum


    What’s really interesting is the pairing with Microsoft. The Windows Phone has not had an easy time of penetrating markets and neither has the ASUS tablet. But Microsoft isn’t a phone company per se. With a partnership between two companies that excel at what they do and have global brand recognition, 2012 could shape up to truly be Nokia / Microsoft’s year in consumer electronics. And, with the huge market shares of Windows Office there is great potential for business to business sales of smartphones (an audience member did inquire on a rumored RIM acquisition).


    Enhance your mobility and turn your device into a power tool!  Discover select accessories such as; stylus & pens, micro SD memory cards, batteries, docking stations, Bluetooth headsets, data cables and glider gloves all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    Jumping ahead to the use of the Lumia 900 as a remote for the Kinect technology for Xbox, the streamlining and integration potential of these two companies looks poised to seriously compete in the home, in the car (thank you, Nokia Drive), and in the office. Throw in a solid punch with those peripheral tech devices and accessories that make this kind of technology so much more meaningful in the real world, and we may have a great year of competition and innovation between Nokia / Microsoft, Google Android and Apple!

    Is anyone else starting to get the many variations of Samsung Galaxy cell phone lineup mixed up? Clearly banking on the strong brand name, Samsung  is preening over its revamped Galaxy Ace, the oh so originally named Galaxy Ace Plus. As stated by JK Shin, President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics in the latest addition’s press release, "In 2012, we will continue to make every effort to create an easy and fun mobile experience by expanding our incredibly popular GALAXY smartphone line of business, which is now one of the most recognized and successful mobile brands in the world." This is a remarkably true statement when considering the success of the Android’s flagship smartphone...  we are also hoping that perhaps 2012 will see similar success with Samsung Galaxy tablet releases.


    Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus to be ReleasedThe Galaxy Ace plus is touted to be a more budget friendly mobile device, it does not appear to be a tech junkie’s preferred handset. Using last year’s minimum specs - 1GHz processor, 5 MP camera, and 3GB memory.   Enhance your mobility and turn your device into a power tool!  Discover select accessories such as; stylus & pens, micro SD memory cards, batteries, docking stations, Bluetooth headsets, data cables and glider gloves all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


     


    Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus to be ReleasedDespite Android’s release of its latest OS – Ice Cream Sandwich, this Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus smartphone still has the tried and true combo of Gingerbread OS and TouchWiz.  Moreover Samsung is marketing the Galaxy ace Plus to trendy young professional who are chomping at the bit for ICS.    Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Discover the latest innovative protection solutions... stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases specifically designed to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    Something else to consider is that despite the increased screen size the resolution is actually worsened as the pixel density is decreased. This less than revolutionary device will be made available in Russia starting this month. After that launch, the newest Galaxy handset will be roll out to Europe, CIS, Latin America, Southeast and Southwest Asia, the Middle East, Africa and China. Whether this new addition will be made available in these markets as an unlocked device is unknown at the moment or when it will be brought to North American shores.

  • iOS - Crowned Market King
    Posted on January 9, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    By Aldo Panessidi


    As more and more reports come out highlighting the changes in mobile user behavior, the fast shift from feature phones to smartphones is also seeing a rapid uptick in the use of these handsets for web browsing. So in this smartphone world, who is browsing the mobile web the most? Based on the latest statistics from NetMarket Share, iPhone and iPad tablet consumers are still at the top of the pack.


    Tablet Operating System Market Share


    Source: NetMarketShare


     


    These December numbers indicate that iOS users have a whopping 52% share of mobile web browsing. This is a decrease from its all time high of 61.5% in October, but still a masterful showing for the year’s end. Apple’s most persistent mobile OS competitor, Google Android, came in third place with 16.2%. This is behind the lesser known Java ME who captured 21.27% of this pie. No surprise, Symbian, BlackBerry and “Other” (Windows Phone perhaps?) trailed in the single digits.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Discover the latest innovative protection solutions... stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases specifically designed to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


     


     


    iOS - Crowned Market King With the immense popularity and strength of Apple’s iPad tablet, the data may overly weighted in the favor of iOS. Still, with the exclusion of the market-defining tablet in this comparison (and the iPod Touch), the iPhone is still numero uno with 25.24% share of the mobile browsing pie.


    The importance of these trends is that it does point to consumer preferences for their mobile devices. Smartphones, tablets, media devices all have the web browsing capability. And, with the very sticky nature of iTunes and the App store in winning over customers - in particular, those users integrating the iOS products into their life and investing in the high tech accessories that accompany them), it is no wonder that they continue to grow and compete with the “open” Google Android platform devices. Enhance your mobility and turn your device into a power tool!  Discover select accessories such as; stylus & pens, micro SD memory cards, batteries, docking stations, Bluetooth headsets, data cables and glider gloves all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    All of this information seems to be contradictory to Android’s consistent market gains across the world; however this is not surprising considering the number of manufacturers and unlocked phones made available on the Google OS platform.   Nonetheless, as in any survey, the data could be skewed, so the greater litmus test of market power will have to be based on actual sales numbers.

    On a personal note, my mother is a literature junkie. So, it is no surprise that on their cross country jaunts to visit over the holidays she loads up her smartphone with audio book downloads before hitting the road. As we discussed my newest iPad 2 tablet acquisition and simultaneously recounted the wonderful rendition of Austenland, she insisted I download the audio book app and log in under her name to download it. Just a few short minutes later, the file was available. Her response was “wow. I am seriously impressed at how fast you were able to download and store it without needing additional memory storage cards.”


    Speedracer Meets Mobile Web Browsing Testing.


    And, in this world of instant gratification, speed is king. Especially on our mobile browsers. So which smartphone manufacturer has the need for speed? This is an excellent question considering the varying strengths of these smartphone players. Android is the bees knees in the LTE support category. iOS has the top of the line dual-core A5 chip to tout its excellence. And, Windows Phone has the IE mobile browser that kicks it into beast mode. Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Discover the latest innovative protection solutions... stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases specifically designed to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


     


    This question may already be answered YouTube video posted below - which compares the Lumia 800, iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 (running on the iOS version 4.3).  Put through a gauntlet of Browsermark, Speed Reading, Sunspider, Acid 3, and HTML5 tests... you will be surprised to find which device was the hands down winner.   Experience the mind blowing clarity of XMI Speakers.  Uncompromised sound quality and a revolutionary design accentuating  today's interactive lifestyle.   Our earpieces and headsets combine sophisticated style and precision engineering that deliver brilliant sound for your total listening pleasure



    It was no contest…the iPhone 4S was beyond the best performance. This is really no surprise when considering what is powering these phones. Nokia’s Lumia 800 has a single core processor which could not keep up with iPhone 4S’s dual core A5 chip. Great news for media junkies and browsers alike... as well as for book lovers like myself, worthy of buying a new pair of headphones for some superior lit listening.  Enhance your mobility and turn your device into a power tool!  Discover select accessories such as; stylus & pens, micro SD memory cards, batteries, docking stations, Bluetooth headsets, data cables and glider gloves all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    There were, however, a few instances where Window’s Phone 7’s mobile browser overpowered the Safari browser on the iPhone 4’s iOS 4.3. That matchup is a bit questionable when taking into account the older version of iOS that the device was running. The question of carrier grade 3G or 4G speeds and availability may affect this as well. This is another great point for unlocked cell phones which empower customer to break free from service provider long term contracts and negotiate a service plan that better meets their unique lifestyle needs at lower costs.


    As in any kind of real world testing, the results are not are controlled or predictable, but it can still be said that Apple produces a great smartphone that appeals to the mobile browser speed fiends out there.
