Moshi for iPad

  • Yesterday we promised it, and today we deliver.


    Black Friday deals have hit Pure Mobile and today's featured mobile accessory of the week is a special we're running on one of the best pair of headphones on the market – Incase's Reflex Headphones.


    These flex-fit headphones are a pretty great deal, even when they're not on sale. Their sleek and compact design with contoured edges is comfortable and attractive, and more importantly, they provide really great sound, especially for the price range.


    In a review, Cult of Android remarked "Incase’s entire line of ‘phones seems to have been designed with the goal of combining two basic traits — hot looks and great sound (for the money) — and the Reflex is swathed in both."


    Incase has paid a lot of attention to the details here. The Reflex's headband has a flexible steel core, so it can manage a fair amount of abuse, but it's nicely padded in fabric for ultimate comfort. Likewise, you won't find any sharp corners, edges or unnecessary bulk on these headphones.



    As for sound, Incase's aim with the Reflex Headphones has been to deliver the most natural sound possible:


    "Our custom-tuned audio drivers deliver natural sound that accurately reproduces the source audio, no matter what you're listening to."


    As Cult of Android remarked, that'll probably suit those whose "tastes run toward the more refined and less boomy. There’s bass, but it’s measured [...] Tracks pop with color and texture, and the set’s definition made them sound surprisingly good even compared with reference sets in their league."


    And thanks to the fact that Incase has designed the Reflex Headphones in a wide range of colors and styles – some have a bright pop of color on the inside, others are clad in denim – you won't feel like a sheep wearing them, even if everyone you know is smart enough to get a pair of their own.


    Bravo, Incase. Bravo.

  • Unveiled at an event in New York yesterday, HTC/Verizon's Droid DNA has already been getting rave reviews. Photo courtesy of CBS.

     


    Recently, the Pure Mobile blog reported on an upcoming HTC/Verizon event slated for November 13 in New York city. When the invitations started rolling out, most (including us) assumed only one thing – HTC's latest smartphone, the Verizon-bound Droid DNA, would be making its first official appearance. Well, we all assumed correctly.


    The event may only have wrapped up yesterday, but reviews are already in, and they're looking good. No, they're looking great, as major Tech sites start loading praise on the black and red device that may just reverse HTC's less than stellar fortunes of late.


    "I may have (finally!) found my new Android Smartphone," wrote one BGR writer, while an article from Gizmodo described the new device as simultaneously "nuts" and "sick."


    The Droid DNA is HTC's first flagship phone for Verizon in quite a while, but the company seems to have made up for lost time by putting out what Gizmodo calls "the most impressively spec-filled smartphone the world has yet known."


    at 440PPI, the Droid DNA's 5" display beats out the competition

     


    Speaking of specs, where do we start?


    TechCrunch has called out the new smartphone's screen as its "biggest claim to fame." The 5" Gorilla Glass display is unique to the Droid DNA in North America – only the Japanese HTC Butterfly J has one like it. And with a resolution of 440 pixels-per-inch, the 1080p Super LCD3 screen certainly outpaces competitors like the iPhone 5.


    Ok, so what's under the hood? The Droid DNA boasts 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a quad-core, 1.5Ghz Snapdragon Qualcomm processor, with 4G LTE sharing the same chip as the application processor. "Having one chip instead of two improves battery life," writes CNET.


    But if your battery does run out of juice, the Droid DNA has wireless charging capabilities, though as TechCrunch notes, there aren't many details yet about accessories for that.


    Powered by Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, the device is NFC- and LTE- capable, and comes with Beats Audio. And its 2.1 megapixel front-facing and 8 megapixel rear-facing cameras are up to standard as compared with other recent devices.


    So, how much will HTC's best smartphone to date run you, and when will you eb able to get your paws on its super-sized screen? The Droid DNA is already available for pre-order, but it'll be heading to Verizon for November 21 at a price of $200 with a 2-year contract.

  • Beware: bogus iPhone 5 dock is total BS
    Posted on October 28, 2012 by ewilkinson

    Seeing is not believing: beware this bogus iPhone 5 dock

     


    At Pure Mobile, top-notch mobile accessories are kind of our thing.


    So when we came across a story on Gizmodo about a bogus Chinese iPhone 5 dock that doesn't actually work, all we could think was "for shame."


    "Don't buy an iPhone 5 dock," Gizmodo warned, "because it's a Chinese scam."


    Their information comes from Double Helix Cables, where a friend actually had a hands-on experience with the fake accessory. Here's what they had to say:


    "Opening up the box and out pops this stinker. I did a double take because it looked like a prank, prop, or placeholder of some sort. The lightning plug on the dock looks like a damn piece of cardboard, if you can even call it that. Because it's a cardboard-like chunk of circuit board that supposedly is going to fit into my iPhone 5."


    The reviewer goes on to write about the the fact that dock's cutout "isn't remotely close to being iPhone 5 shaped," and then elaborates on the "home brewed lightning plug [...] which 100% doesn't fit."


    A critic of the phoney dock took major issue with its "home brewed lightning plug"

     


    This lovely critique then ends with the writer concluding that any "further effort to make this non functional dock [work] would probably damage my iPhone."


    Granted, Apple doesn't actually make a dock accessory for the iPhone 5, yet. But that's no reason for third party manufacturers to start churning out ones that simply don't work.


    Many would be more than happy to produce a suitable iPhone 5 dock that actually functions, especially if they don't have to compete with Apple itself. There are plenty of fun third party iPhone 5 gadgets out there that not only work, but work really well.


    And, in our opinion, there's no excuse for this kind of blatant BS when so many companies have been able to turn a dollar making affordable and functional iPhone accessories that consumers actually want.
