  • App That Steals Passwords Banned
    Posted on June 16, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Getting rid of spyware and other malware in apps is something that Apple has always been pretty on top of, and them getting rid of a recent app that steals your passcodes is really no surprise overall. The app that was called the “Big Brother Camera Security” app that was used to steal the passcodes of users. The app was created by the developer Daniel Amity.


    App That Steals Passwords Banned


    The app attempts to trick users into setting a new passcode that is identical to the pin that they use to lock their unlocked iPhone 4 It was not clear exactly what he was going to be using that passcode for, but you can bet that it was going to be for something malicious. The developers intentions did not seem to be malicious from the get go, but apple was not going to allow that kind of app will be allowed in their marketplace. Apple is not willing to take the risk that the app would be used for the right purposes throughout its life.


     


    The app was banned from the app store, without them even giving them the chance to remake the app to get rid of the issues that got the app banned in the first place. The private PIN’s were not going to be able to be directly tied to the users that had installed the app, but who knows what they could have used them for in due time.


    App That Steals Passwords Banned


    This comes on the heels of the apps for android phones such as Motorola Atrix unlocked, HTC Desire, etc..  tore having many different problems with apps in their store being used for malware or malicious intent in recent days. With all of the attention that has been placed on that in recent days it was clear that Apple was not willing to take any risks with the Big Brother app.

  • Google Gets Rid of Malware Posed as angry Birds AdditionsGoogle has been hard at work to get rid of the apps that have made it into their marketplace that contain malware for the Android operating system such as unlocked Samsung Galaxy II, Xperia Play from Sony Ericsson. This is the third time a batch of Android malware has been discovered and has essentially been labeled “Plankton.” Apparently the app had the ability to access a server for instructions on what the app should do next.


     


    This is a pretty stealthy was for these developers to get their malware into the Android marketplace. With all of the questions that have arisen in recent weeks as a result of all of the malware that has been found in the Android marketplace it is apparent that Google is doing everything in their power to root out the issues.



    Unlike previous apps, Plankton did not use holes in the security of the phone to attack the user, but instead called to instructions that were stored on another server to do its dirty work. They also chose to promote the app as an add on to Angry Birds, which is easily one of the most popular games in the history of mobile. It will certainly be interesting to see how these apps are packaged in the future to get an idea of what to avoid. The hackers also packaged the apps as Cheat Apps for Angry Birds, which helped the apps to spread much more quickly. Previous apps utilized trojan horses that infiltrate the phone such as LG Eve GW 620 unlocked, HTC Desire, etc.. and send text messages to numbers, driving up the cost for the user. Google continues to fight the malware attacks but it is clear that people are looking to exploit vulnerabilities in the operating system. It will be interesting to see how Google responds to these threats moving forward and whether or not they will be able to put an end to the uploading of illegal materials.

  • Unlocked HTC phone has announced the HTC Evo Shift 4G in an attempt to build upon the popularity of the EVO 4G phone that was released during the summer of 2010. Although the Evo Shift 4G will not be as feature loaded as the Evo 4G, the company placed upgrades in all of the right places to ensure that they were able to deliver a superior product to their users. The release shouldn’t be the media extravaganza that the Evo 4G was, but will still garner a lot of attention.


    The phone will feature an 800 MGz Qualcomm CPU. This is the same processor that is found in other popular phones including the G2 and My Touch. The screen is a bit smaller than most would expect at 3.6 inches, but offers a beautiful 800 x 480 LCD screen that delivers beautiful images. The device will run on the Android 2.2 operating system, which has easily been the most popular among the new announcements at the Consumer Electronic Show this year.


    The Shift 4G will utilize WiMAX 4G to run smoothly on Sprints network, and should be among the fastest phones that HTC has to offer. The design of the phone is fairly thick and has been compared to the Unlocked Motorola  Droid 2, recently released by Verizon. The keyboard as a great feels to it and is very easy to use.


    It is powerful enough to handle Android 2.2 without any issues and runs smooth from one screen to another. We have noticed no lag when moving between apps and screens and the current loading time when you start the phone is 43 seconds.


    The Evo Shift 4G will be one of the best phones that HTC has to offer this year, and is a marked upgrade over previous versions of the phone. It will be interesting to see how well the phone is received by current users of the Shift. HTC made changes in all of the right areas to bring users an upgraded experience with a solid cell device.

  • LG unlocked cell phone has allowed for several hands on reviews of their new Optimus Black and Optimus 2X devices. Just before the Consumer Electronics Show, it is clear that most companies will be looking to build hype for their devices and one of the most popular trends for this year is to allow hands on review of these devices.


    The Optimus 2X was the star of the hands on review, featuring a NVideo Tegra 2 dual core processor that runs at 1GHz in each of the cores. It is a very powerful mobile device that should be at the forefront of pushing the envelope forward. And offering processors that are the strength that was normally reserved for computers. The graphics on the device looked great, as did the screen. It is able to handle all that is asked of it from Android and moves very smoothly from one screen to another. The HDMI out port looks great when it is connected to displays up to 42 inches in size and no quality is lost on the conversion.


    The Optimus Black also received rave reviews. It’s 1 GHz OMAP3630 processor paled in comparison to the Tegra, but was still plenty powerful to run Android and all that it requires. It is much thinner than the Tegra, and as a result is much more light. It is a well-manufactured and designed device that fits comfortably in the pocket.


    The Optimus Blacks were also running Froyo, which is a highly hyped version of the Android operating system that allows the device to connect to other Android devices and transfer files peer to peer through long range connections. It also has a front facing, 2 megapixel camera that allows you to video chat as has become popular with many other devices.


    Overall, both devices looked great and provided the features that everyone was looking for, exceeding expectations in the case of the 2x.

  • The Tonino Lamborghini Evoluzione will be running on the Android operating system and will provide users with capabilities that were not in the previous version of the device. Although most in the industry consider the unlocked cell phone to be a tad bit overpriced, there is no denying the service that comes with the Evoluzione. The Lamborghini smart devices have been considered to be very high quality, and are more so for the crowd that is looking for a richer smart device experience.



    The phone only comes with a 3.2 inch HVGA display, and runs on a 600 MHz processor which will make the device undeniably underpowered when compared to some of the other big brand names phones that have been released in recent weeks. the phone certainly does not live up to its automotive name, and does not provide what you would expect from something that has a Lamborghini brand name.



    The phone will cost a total of $600, which is more than $700 reduced from the previous price. But even at $600, you are still paying a lot more for the brand name than you ever would the phone. It would be more worth the money if they were able to offer a little incentive to purchase the phone. For the price, you would expect a Lamborghini to have some sort of sleek design that would make it stand out from the crowd, but that is not the case here. The phone, by all accounts, other than the name of course is about as plain as they come. Although they will be marketed to those that own their cars, they will also be available for purchase for individuals that do not own a Lamborghini motor vehicle as well. Don’t expect this phone to gain much in the way of popularity; the price tag is simply too high.

  • According to leading phone blog site, The Kindle has quickly become one of the most popular platforms for reading eBooks and other online material that can be purchased through the Amazon bookstore. Now, a number of sources are claiming that Amazon has been selling eBooks that are free to the public and have had their licensing information stripped. These books can come in a variety of different formats through their service including ePub, Kindle format and even in HTML.


    Some of the eBooks have been made available through Project Gutenberg, a project that is focused on providing free eBooks online. It is the largest and first collection of its kind. Project Gutenberg also employs a number of volunteers that are not paid for their services, so it is strange that Amazon would attempt to use these same ebooks that are available to the public for gain.


    The selling of these eBooks that have been re-branded is not illegal, but is it ethical? That is the question that critics are now asking Amazon. Charging someone for something that they acquired for free certainly will rub some of their users the wrong way, especially those that paid money for the books. The truth of the matter is that selling the books for profit isn’t even against the Project Gutenberg licensing terms.


    In response to the allegations against the company an Amazon Spokeswoman replied by saying that the books were not uploaded by Amazon itself and instead were uploaded by third parties using their self serve platform that they have provided for the distribution of ebooks online. Amazon has not committed to removing the books from their store but if they garner much more press attention there is a good chance that they could decide to remove them in an effort to avoid the bad publicity that they have created for the largest online retailer in the world.

  • Acer beTouch E140 Will Run Froyo
    Posted on November 30, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    The Acer beTouch is a  phone that has garnered a lot of attention from a number of different websites in recent days. Although the phone does not boast the most high-powered features in the smart phone industry, it’s low price and simplicity of its features have made the device highly attractive to users who want all the functionality of a smart device without having to deal with the high prices, large size of the phones and complicated features.



    The Acer beTouch will feature a 600 MHz processor that is capable of running most of the apps that will be available for the phone through the Android store. It will also feature a 2.8 inch QVGA touchscreen, which is much smaller than most android smart phones, along with a 3.2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.1 capabilities, Wifi enabled and HSDPA connections.


    This unlocked cell phone will reportedly start at just $264, significantly cheaper than most other smart phones. The Acer beTouch is a phone that is ideal for individuals who are just making the leap into smart devices, or for individuals that are looking for a smaller device. The phone was purposely designed for individuals on a budget who simply can not live without a smart device.


    aThere have been no announcements as to whether or not the phone will be available in United States. Most reports have stated that the phone is nearing completion and is nearly ready for a release in the United States, so much so that experts have predicted that Acer could make an announcement regarding the release date of the phone over the course of the next few days. the Acer beTouch E130 was shown off at Computex 2010, where it was announced that the phone will run on the Android Froyo platform. It will be interesting to see how well the phone is received by the budgeting segment of the smart device market.

  • FCC looking to accept 911 texting
    Posted on November 25, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    With texting becoming increasingly popular across the globe among the unlocked cell phone users, the FCC is now taking a look at how viable 911 texts would be in situations of emergency. Of course, this could potentially pose a number of problems, but if the system were not abused it could help save lives. There are plenety of situations where someone may want to silently contact 911 in order to receive help without alerting individuals around them that they are doing so.


    For instance, if someone were in your house it would make a lot of sense to hide and text 911 rather than to call and risk being heard. Or, if you were running from someone and didn't have time to stop and talk, you could send a text in order to keep moving.



    As of right now, it is not clear if they will expand their 911 services to include text messages. Any widespread roll out of the feature would likely require quite a bit of testing to ensure that the system works correctly and is not abused. The FCC is also reportedly looking into receiving MMS with streaming video and pictures so that you can more accurately describe your location or give the operator an idea of what police or medical officials can expect as they arrive on the scene.


    It will be interesting to see if they adopt this practice. It is a good idea, but may not be as practical as expected and might actually cause more confusion and problems than the current system does, which requires that you call for help. If successful,t he program could potentially save quite a few lives.

  • Many new smart devices are finding that when they partner with Facebook and provide features that other phones do not for the social networking platform, their chances of success rise quite significantly. Now, the Skyfire 3.0  app for Android is going to be adding a number of Facebook features to their browser that will increase compatibility with the device.



    Skyfire is known for being the web browser that allows unlocked iPhone 4 users to play flash content online even though Apple has not officially supported flash because they claim that it will make their phones vulnerable to attacks. Skyfire works by converting the flash videos into other types of videos that are more suitable for a plethora of different devices, and the fact that they are adding Facebook integration will only help the browser to grow.


    In the same way that Digg and other social bookmarking sites work, Skyfire will allow users to check out the most popular content that has been bookmarked to Facebook through their browser. They have also added the “Fireplace” which gives you all of the news feeds and links, videos, and images that your friends have posted. You also can access a number of different Facebook pages, including your profile with a single click of a button.


    This is good news for Skyfire users who have been hearing rumors regarding Facebook support for weeks now. With nearly the entire world on the social networking service it is smart to add integration on devices, apps, websites and everything in between. This is a move that will not only benefit thegrowth of the app, but the users who use it as well. It will be interesting to see how well the new features are received by their current users because it will take away from the browser screen and will add a number of different buttons to the browser itself, drastically changing the interface.

  • Motorola MOTOPAD – Android 3.0
    Posted on November 17, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    According to a leading cell phone mobile blog, Motorola has been chosen to show their upcoming tablet friendly version of Google’s OS.  This is much like when Motorola helped Google acquire Android 2.0 with the unlocked Motorola Milestone Droid.  Now it is pretty much in charge with the same task.


    There have not been a lot of details to go along with this recent newsworthy story, but it was released that Motorola’s upcoming Android 3.0 tablet will be 7 inches.  This will not be much to get people excited about, but it certainly is a sneak peak about things to come.  It should be interesting to see how everything unfolds with this story.  I am sure that more information will be released about Motorola showcasing their version of Google’s OS.  There has not even been a date given when this will happen yet.  A lot of people assume that there should be some type of meeting with all of this news with other releases that take place.  When we hear about when it will take place, we will make sure to let you know to give you a heads up about it.  There really are not a whole lot of details about this yet since it is fairly new.  Obviously, there will not be a ton of details.  That is just a given – common sense.



    All we know right now is that Google specifically chose MOTOPAD as the first device to show Android 3.0, and that the device will be 7 inches.  So yeah, this may not be the most thrilling news, but it does give you even more reason to keep your ears open about more news to come.  I am sure that there will be some type of meeting given where people can show up and watch the showcase of this happening.
