  • Christmas is less than a month away, and as the days pass, the likelihood of finding a gift for everyone on your list diminishes, right? Wrong.


    There are some gifts everyone loves. These days, there isn't a person out there who wouldn't love some sort of gadget or tech-related gift. And, with a quick look into the huge variety of mobile accessories out there, you can easily get through your Christmas shopping and find the right gift for everyone this season.


    So Pure Mobile is rounding up the top Christmas gift ideas in mobile accessories and tech for every type – from the sporty to the style-savvy, and even your parents, we've got something that'll make them happy this holiday season.


    For the Outdoorsy Athlete: Sony SmartWatch



    It's hard to check your phone when you're outside running 5 k every morning. So the jock in your life will probably appreciate a hands-free way to stay connected without interrupting their workout. Enter the Sony SmartWatch.


    This high-tech wristwatch works with Bluetooth-enabled Android deices to let the wearer check and control their phone, all from their wrist – an ideal gift for the sporty or outdoorsy type.


    For the Smartphone Addict: Glider Gloves


    There's at least one phone junkie in your life, and you know by now that rather than try an pry their smartphone out of their hands, it's easier to just enable them with a smartphone-related gift. Make sure they can use their beloved device, no mater what the weather, with a pair of conductive touchscreen gloves that'll let them play with their apps even in the middle of a snowstorm.


    Glider Gloves makes models for both men and women, ranging from the thinner Urban Gloves model, to the thick Winter Gloves model. They even come in fun colors for the ladies, like pink and purple.


    For your folks: BlueTooth Car Kit


    Nothing says "I love you Mom and Dad" like looking out for their safety. And a BlueTooth Car Kit will do just that.


    Your folks will be able to talk, use GPS, and listen to music hands-free and much more safely. For crystal clear sound quality, easy touch buttons, and slim compact design, we recommend Plantronics' K 100.


    For the music lover: High-end Headphones/Portable Speaker



    for real music lovers, being able to get great audio anywhere is the best gift you could give.


    High-end headphones, like a pair from Beats by Dre, or a portable speaker, like the iHome Portable Speaker for Apple devices, will let the music buff in your life enjoy their favorite tunes on the go.


    For the Fashion Fiend: Stylish Smartphone Cases for Every Outfit 



    Choosing a gift for a fashionable friend can be hard, especially when they already tend to treat themselves to whatever tickles their fancy.


    Why not give them one more way to accessorize with a selection of stylish cases for their iPhone, Android device, or BlackBerry? A brightly colored, boldly patterned or glamourously sparkling smartphone case, like one of the trendy models from iSkin OtterBox, or Incase, will make the perfect addition to their already extensive wardrobe.


    For the Kids: Tablet Creativity from Crayola and Griffin



    If it weren't for their price tag and fragility, it might seem tablets were made expressly for children. Kids love laying with iPads and a gift that'll let them do so without damaging the device will score big with the little ones – and their parents.


    Griffin and Crayola have partnered for just such a purpose on some products that allow kids to safely interact with tablets, like the Crayola Trace & Draw, and Crayola Color Studio – drawing and coloring tools that will keep the kids busy and the hardware safe.

  • 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.

    The Big Apple to Host Apple EventSecondary speculation may lead informed readers to think the event would be regarding prospective Apple’s iTV product release also slated for 2012.   Although, based in California and understanding that importance of location, it would stand to reason that the unveiling of their iTV brand would be better framed in Hollywood.  However, All Things D is suggesting that the event will be one of publishing or advertising occasion and as such, will be held in New York.   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.

    The Big Apple to Host Apple Event


    Never without a newsworthy event to keep it in the spotlight (an announcement about unlocked iPhones would be welcomed by the public), Apple also recently opened a shiny new retail store in the Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan and is keeping its Fifth Avenue presence in tiptop condition with the refurbishment of that location’s flagship glass cube. Well Apple, keeps the good news rolling in!

    RIM Radically Slashes BlackBerry PlayBook PricesWhen Research In Motion rolled out its answer to Apple’s iPad, the Blackberry Playbook, a loyal RIM community of customers eagerly awaited the release of the Canadian company’s tablet.  While market anticipation was high, sales have shown, that the Blackberry's PlayBook has not stormed the tech world as hoped. In fact, the debut of the BlackBerry tablet seems to have marked a snowball effect of bad news and lost credibility for RIM in 2011. 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.
    Before the jailbreak incident, this alternative tablet was poised as promising market success. However, Google’s Android OS based tablets the iPad 2 and iPad 3 took and continues to hold consumer mindset and the lion's share of the market. Apple's breakthrough marketing strategy was the catalyst that actually created the both the tablet market consumer demand. State of the art accessories? Customer driven innovations?  Unfortunately, RIM marketing campaign for the Blackberry PlayBook was not revolutionary enough for a discerning public. The bottom line of this failure in mediocrity was a $485 million loss in the third quarter of 2011 due to the PlayBook's sluggish sales.  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?


     


    Throughout the holiday season mobile retailers and device manufacturers alike look to close out the year’s sales strong. Research In Motion was no different except that they started aggressively dropping prices in an attempt to clear out the excess inventory. These discounts did appear to help both RIM’s and their distribution partners move units of the QNX based tablet.

    RIM Radically Slashes BlackBerry PlayBook Prices


    With any luck, RIM can recoup some losses, move the tablets, and start out the new year on a higher note. To kick off these goals, they are making all three of their PlayBook models for $299. That is an outrageously steep $400 discount off the 64GB version. In addition to these discounts, the company would be smart to pair it with promoting the accompanying tablet accessories.


     


    If they can successfully lure in customers, upsell accessories and spin a silver lining around the cloudy RIM brand with the upcoming update... which is slated native email among other great improvements, the PlayBook and RIM can learn from 2011’s mistakes and launch itself back into an increasingly competitive market in an effort to carve out a niche.

    Samsung is on a roll with its Galaxy line of Android smartphones, so let the good times continue to roll… The manufacturer has recently released its latest : the Galaxy S Glide. Boasting a stellar slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a camera that takes great pictures, and a surprisingly robust battery life (almost two days with regular, vigorous use!), this latest addition performs well but has its shortcomings that may be deal breakers for some consumers.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  The latest innovative protection solutions, stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases allow you to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with our.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    Samsung Galaxy S Glide... Impressive Indeed!For the techies out there – let’s start this out with the nitty gritty details and specs.


    Specs:


    - Android 2.3.5 with TouchWIZ 4
    - 480 x 800 pixel Super AMOLED display
    - 1Ghz Tegra 2 dual-core processor
    - 1GB RAM / 8GB internal storage
    - 8MP camera with flash / 1.3MP front-facing camera
    - 720p video capabilities
    - WiFi (b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP, A-GPS
    - 124.5 x 63.5 x 12.7mm
    - 147.4 grams
    - 21Mbps HSPA+ (850/1900/2100Mhz)
    - 1650mAh battery


    The Phone


    Because cell phones have become pocket computers and as such are extremely mobile, the feel and weight of our smartphones is important to consider. The Galaxy S Glide is heftier than many others. The hard slide-out QWERT Y keyboard is bound to add some weight to the device. Depending on the user, it could be a « just right » handset, but like any thorough Goldilocks smartphone searcher keep trying them on for size.  Enhance your mobility and turn your device into a power tool! Discover select accessories, such as stylus & pens, SD Micro memory cards, batteries, speakers and glider gloves all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    One thing Samsung got spot on with this device is that it is beautifully balanced when the keyboard is in use.  Get powered up for work, life and play easily and conveniently with a collection of desktop chargers, wall chargers and car chargers.   Get all the power and energy you need for the mobile lifestyle.


    Samsung Galaxy S Glide... Impressive Indeed!The camera is another bright feature on this smartphone. The optics for all of the Galaxy family of mobile devices are consitently superb. With an 8MP camera that is accurate and fast, it also features and autofocus that aids in consistently high quality shots. With this in mind, this writer does recommend a removable micro SD memory card to ensure continued good performance and saved pictures.  Experience the latest in earpieces and headsets that combine sophisticated style and precision engineering that deliver brilliant sound for your total listening pleasure


     


    Performance & Software


    Despite the fact that this smartphone addition is using a capable, but out of date Tegra 2, it does work well on the Android platform for smooth performance and for what it lacks in power it is stable and more worry free.   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


     


    Network Speed and Call Quality


    So, the call quality isn’t an issue on the network, but as with the other Samsung devices, the earpiece has a lower output. Despite the noise canceling secondary microphone at the back of the phone, this fault is still noticeable in busy environs with more white noise, users may want to experiment with higher quality Bluetooth devices to improve this sound quality.


    Also disappointing is the mono speaker quality. Functional for conference calls and the like, it is shrill and unpleasing. For music and other media, customers are better off using a separate media device for their entertainment usage. Discover  XMI Speakers' uncompromised sound quality and a revolutionary design accentuating  today's interactive lifestyle.


    Samsung Galaxy S Glide... Impressive Indeed!


    Wrap-up


    Overall, this phone may be exactly the right phone for some users because of its fit and keyboard and camera. It doesn’t wow with its processor and shiny new insides or a beautifully sleek and aethetically pleasing body, but that likely wasn’t the goal of Samsung. They clearly invested time and efforts in the keyboard and made the most of aging hardware to provide a compromise to customers with different needs. The only question left to answer is if this latest addition will be made available unlocked or what carriers it will be made available through.  let the latest in trend setting fashionable accessories express your unique style!  Discover an extensive array of award-wining design protective cases and skins deliver modern style, stunning design and smart protection.  Make your mobile devices stand out.  Customize your look - how cool can you be?

    The question remains – will the goodwill gesture help heal some of the debacles of the past year that include the foundation rattling PlayBook jailbreak?

    All in all, we cannot make commentary on the success of the free apps as it will not end until 2012 is already upon us, but RIM is sure to stay on our radar for what it brings to the table in the coming year (whether it be good, bad or ugly!).

  • BlackBerry Curve 9380 Review
    Posted on December 29, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    By:  Aldo Panessidi


    December 29, 2011


    The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is RIM’s first ever-released Curve with a touch screen. The Curve product line is usually an expression of RIM’s understanding for a budget phone and this one supposedly, doesn’t make a difference. It should attract customers with a lower entry price while offering the full BB OS 7 experience.


    Physically the BlackBerry Curve 9380's measurements are a svelte 109mmx60mmx11.2mm with a 3.2 inch display... weighing just 98grams makes the unlocked cell phone very pocket friendly.


    The new Curve 9380 is basically a downgraded Torch 9860 – it has a less-capable processor and smaller and low-res display.   The BlackBerry Curve 9380 comes with a standard set of accessories - a USB cable, a wall charger and a set of headphones are provided. In addition there is a complimentary 2GB MicroSD card as well.


    The following Blackberry Curve 9380 video provides great user interface insight



    The BlackBerry Curve 9380 comes with a fixed-focus single LED flash camera offering the highest resolution of all RIM smartphones.  It does however, have a relatively low number of customizable settings.  The image quality is about average with pleasing colors and a good amount detail.


    It is incapable of capturing HD videos due in part to its lower processor clock.   The best it can do is VGA clips at 30 frames per second (fps).  The video quality is up, however overall audio is poor.  Enhance your mobility and turn your device into a power tool.  Discover select, stylus & pens, earpieces & headphones, data cables, desktop chargers, car kits and special glider gloves,  accessories specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    The web browser is fast and responsive, however, it does not support Flash.  It does provide a solid set of organizer tools. Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Discover the latest  innovative protection solutions of stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases designed to allow you to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside brand name protection cases and skins accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


     


    The following is a snapshot of the Curve 9380 full feature list, followed by its disadvantages.


    Key features:


    • 3.2" 16M-color TFT touchscreen of HVGA resolution (360 x 480 pixels)
    • Quad-band GSM support and tri-band 3G with HSDPA
    • Single-core 800MHz processor
    • 512MB RAM
    • BlackBerry OS v7
    • BlackBerry’s proprietary email service and data security
    • Wi-Fi b/g/n connectivity
    • GPS receiver and BlackBerry maps preloaded
    • 5 megapixel fixed-focus camera and a LED flash
    • VGA video recording @ 30 fps
    • 150MB of inbuilt storage
    • 2GB MicroSD card pre-bundled
    • Four physical buttons at the bottom

    • DivX and Xvid video support
    • Office document editor
    • 3.5 mm audio jack
    • Smart dialing
    • Ultra-fast boot times
    • Solid build quality

    Main disadvantages:

    • No Flash support for the web browser
