    Ask anyone what Near-field communication (NFC) technology does and they’ll tell you it processes mobile payments. Now Samsung is going to give NFC a whole new meaning with TecTiles.


    Samsung’s new TecTiles takes NFC beyond mobile payments


    TecTiles are little “stickers” with a simple NFC tag inside. Each sticker lets the user “program” the sticker to have a specific response whenever any device with an NFC chip passes nearby.  You designate a TecTile to perform a specific function like open a website, change a device setting, make a call, download a document, or whatever else you’ve told the sticker to do. When you tap the screen above the TecTile it will do what you programmed it to.


    Unlike QR codes, NFC doesn’t require launching an app or using your phone’s camera — just put your phone on top of it and hit “OK.”


    We hear the app is very easy to use, and within seconds we were able to program the TecTile with simple commands like phoning a specific number. As long as you don’t “lock” the TecTile, you can re-set it to other programs.


    Samsung’s TecTile app runs on any Samsung phone with an NFC chip, including the Samsung Galaxy S 3 and Samsung Galaxy S 2, the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S, and the Galaxy S Blaze. The TecTile app will be available in Google Play.  You can purchase stickers in packs of five for $14.99 from Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile.

    Samsung Defeats Apple


    In just one year, Samsung has taken the top spot from Apple as the world’s largest smartphone vendor. Samsung shipped over 42 million phones in 1Q 2012, as opposed to Apple’s 31 million. For Samsung, that’s a one year improvement in their shipment numbers of 267%!

    Samsung’s impressive growth doesn’t stop there. The South Korean- based vendor also ousted longtime leader Nokia to become the world’s largest mobile phone vendor by recording a 35% increase in phone shipments during the past year, as opposed to Nokia’s decrease of 24%.


    As you would expect, this kind of growth is translating into big money. Samsung increased its profits by 82% to a record 5.05 trillion in the first quarter of the year.

    According to IDC senior research analyst Ramon Llamas, “Apple launched its popular iPhone 4S in additional key markets, most notably in China, and Samsung experienced continued success from its Galaxy Note smartphone/tablet and other Galaxy smartphones. With other companies in the midst of major strategic transitions, the contest between Apple and Samsung will bear close observation as hotly-anticipated new models are launched.”

  • 2012 Mobile Tech in review
    Posted on January 11, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    The changing of the guard from one year to the next brings inevitable changes. This is especially true with mobile technology which is arguably one of the most competitive and innovative segments of the tech industry as traditional feature phones and carriers are challenged with smartphone technologies and apps and unlocked phones.


    So even if you keep half an ear to the latest happenings in this niche of the world market, there is a plethora of information, rumors, and announcements to keep track of. To help make the focus more manageable, here are a few noteworthy notices to kick off your 2012 mobile tech watch.


    First, the continuing saga of the king of feature phones as it endeavors to make its mark in a smartphone world: Nokia. The mobile OS this manufacturer chose for its foray into smartphones is Symbian. Clearly this pairing didn’t fare well in the global marketplace. As a farewell gesture that is bound to drive the final nail in the coffin of Symbian, Nokia has opted to rebrand its latest smartphone as Nokia Belle. No Symbian to be mentioned in association again it seems. Perhaps the best rebranding for Nokia would be launching a new tablet featuring its next mobile OS choice.


    Samsung Galaxy Nexus S


     


    Not to be left out, Google Android is bound to make this list. And, it is no surprise that it is causing waves with its much-buzzed-about OS upgrade: Ice Cream Sandwich. Global rollouts of this Android 4.0 update were supposed to have begun for Nexus S customers a few days ago, but according to the Google Community Manager, Paul Wilcox, announced that they are pausing updates to better monitor feedback for a while (this sounds oddly familiar to CarrierIQ scandal which highlighted the benefits of customers choosing unlocked devices).


    On a more positive note for Google, they are now globally activating approximately 700,000 Android devices daily. The company’s willingness to work with many manufacturers (creating more opportunities for customers to choose carrier neutral unlocked phones), is significantly contributing to their continued growth around the world.


    To follow on the heels of Google’s customer driven philosophy, carriers are having to fight the loss of their exclusivity on smartphones, tablets and accessories by dropping their prices. Recent reports show that 4G LTE pricing may drop by as 60% by 2016 as the additional speeds aren’t worth the cost for heavy users and the carrier specific devices that enable 4G are markedly more expensive than their 3G counterparts as well.

  • The odds that the Samsung Galaxy S will soon find a home in the US have skyrocketed recently with the FCC awarding certification for the newest smartphone from Samsung.  The Galaxy S is set to support the AT&T friendly 3G bands and would represent a huge shot in the arm to AT&T’s Android offerings which is currently limited to the Motorola BACKFLIP.  While it is not 100% certain that the Galaxy S is headed for AT&T this is what many mobile device experts are forecasting for this new phone.

    The Samsung Galaxy S is supposed to be one of the best Android devices when it finally hits the US market.  The fact that it is more than likely coming to the AT&T network will be welcomed news for all of the AT&T customers who have been patiently waiting for some other Android devices to hit the market.  Since AT&T currently only carries one Android device at the moment the Galaxy S is sure to be a huge hit when it finally arrives in the US.


    The Samsung Galaxy S is set to come with the Android 2.1 OS and be one of the most popular devices on the market.  This announcement that the FCC has awarded the Galaxy S certification means that this device is that much closer to being released in the US market.  I know that I am personally excited to see what all of the buzz has been about regarding the Galaxy S.  Being a huge fan of some of the other Android phones I am sure that I will not be disappointed when I am finally able to get my hands on one of these Galaxy S devices from Motorola.
