  • Where Cell Phones Are Going
    Posted on December 16, 2008 by Pure Mobile

    This year has seen some major leaps forward in the mobile handheld industry.


    In a recent article by PCMag this is exactly what they discussed


    ...[j]ust two years ago, the mobile phone market was pretty ho-hum. You had your candy bar phones and your flip phones. There were BlackBerry devices and Windows Mobile phones. Those phones had calendars and contact lists, and a few other apps that were too annoying to use. Few people ever added any new applications to their phones. Surfing the Web was for emergency use only, since it was slow and ugly.


    Fast forward to this year. You've got the must-have iPhone. For open source fans, there's the Android phone. The idea of shopping for, buying and downloading new apps isn't remotely unusual. Browsing online means seeing Web sites that look just like they do on a computer.


    It's the ultimate dream of the mobile phone industry, but it wasn't created by the mobile phone industry -- the dream was actualized by outsiders. The result is that today, the traditional phone makers are playing catch-up and some are in such a struggle to do so that their future existence is uncertain.


    What it means is that since the Apple iPhone was released in July of 2007 the cell phone industry hasn't been the same.  We've gone from regular old phones like the Motorola Razr that really had one function to phones like the upcoming Nokia N97, which does just about everything your heart could desire.


    More and more people are expecting more from their phones.


    ...Avi Greengart, analyst at Current Analysis, sees a fundamental shift in the mobile industry that has only just begun. "We've gone from an era of hardware design where all you needed was something pretty to an era of software design where people expect to do more with their phones," said Greengart.


    People still care about the look of the phone.  The "pretty" factor still exists, but not as much as before.  People want a good looking phone that does what they want.  People are no longer happy with being able to have their phone sound an alarm in the morning to wake them up.  They want to be able to go on Facebook, send email, play games, and sync to their computers.


    What does the future hold for cell phones we can only wait and see.  If it continues to progress as it is now there is no telling what we can expect.

  • So the big news of the week...  the new Nokia N97.  The phone that is set to be the  iPhone killer.  Well this does certainly seem like it has a lot of potential.  It's being described as a Nokia 5800 on steroids.


    The Nokia N97 has already started to create a huge amount of buzz.  Not only does it come with the standard quad band phone with 3G but it adds a whole host of features that make it the iPhone killer.


    Now what makes it an iPhone killer?  Is it the Bluetooth with A2DP for stereo music with wireless headphones?  Is it the fact that it supports MMS?  Is it the fact that is has a 5MP camera?  Could it be because it takes video at 30fps?  Maybe it's the 16GB MicroSD support?  Or the 32GB of internal memory?  Well the short answer is yes.


    With all the features mentioned above the Nokia N97 seems to have everything the iPhone has and more.  Currently the iPhone has up to 16GB of internal memory with no memory card support.  The N97 has 32GB internal and that can be expanded up to another 16GB with the microSD slot.


    Other features are the 3.5mm headphone jack so if you feel the need to have wired headphones to listen to music you can use any standard ones.  Even the touch screen seems to be well done.


    People are starting to get their hands on demo units and puremobile.com will get Nokia N97 in stock as soon as it is available.  We will have a full review as soon as we get our hands one.
