  • The terms "Scratchgate" and "Scuffgate" have surfaced as early adopters of the iPhone 5 complain of unsightly marks on the aluminum back

     


    Okay, so it's not exactly a national scandal on the scale of Watergate, but there's a kerfuffle all across the web over the reputed inadequacy of the new iPhone 5's aluminum back.


    The fact that the aluminum is prone to scratching has users and tech sites shouting Scratchgate and Scuffgate, and even led to cries of "oh, the humanity!" Proud new owners of the iPhone 5 have already been complaining of unsightly scratches and scuffs on the black-coated aluminum of their new prized possession.


    And, as 9to5 Mac reported, one such user actually garnered a response from Apple's Senior VP of Marketing, Phil Schiller, who told him: “Any aluminum product may scratch or chip with use, exposing its natural silver color. That is normal.”


    Fair enough. The aluminum backing of the iPhone 5 may be prone to wear, but it is actually less fragile than the glass backing of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. And even in a Gizmodo video where one user is determined to “scratch the hell” out of the new device within store, the iPhone 5 holds up pretty well, though it's never rubbed against sharp metal objects like keys or rings.



    Still, all of this brings us to an important, if awkward, discussion:


    It's fun to have the latest smartphone. You love Apple ever so much, and you and your new iPhone are planning to make a life together – at least until the next model comes out, that is.


    But the fact is, just because you trust your smartphone, there's no reason not to use protection. It's for your iPhone's good as much as your own. So glove the love.


    Yes, we're talking about cases and covers. In the case of the iPhone 4 and 4S, a rugged case is best (we've all seen those tragic shots of shattered glass.) But for the iPhone 5, a simple skin just to protect the black finish may be enough to do the trick.


    The result of unprotected smartphone love: the cracked glass panel of an iPhone 4

     


    Meanwhile, the moral of this story extends beyond Apple's products, to any smartphone you want to keep in good shape. To paraphrase Beyoncé, if you liked it then you should have put a skin on it.

  • LifeProof's new Nüüd iPad case promises "barely there" waterproof protection

     


    Humankind's fascination with gadgets can only be rivalled by our longstanding fascination with water.


    So, even though we quake with fear at the thought of submerging our iPads, iPhones and other devices, it shouldn't really surprise us that, when people go swimming or surfing, they want to take their tablet or smartphone along.


    We've already seen something of the waterproofing trend from LifeProof – the San Diego-based company boasts what's been called the slimmest waterproof case for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.


     


    But now, the New York Times' Gadgetwise blog is reporting on the company's latest in elemental shielding for Apple devices.


    This time, LifeProof has taken its efforts to tablets, with the waterproof Nüüd iPad case. The product gets its name from the fact that there's actually no screen covering – your iPad's naked glass screen is already waterproof, and adding an extra film on top only reduces clarity.


    Instead, the Nüüd case seals around the glass and provides a waterproof backing for the rest of the iPad. There's also access at the bottom for charging and syncing, so you don't have to constantly take the case off and put it back on again.


    As Gadgetwise points out, you still may not want to do any serious snorkeling with your iPad, since it wasn't really designed for that. But the new iPad case is great for poolside, a day at the beach, or any other routine encounter with water.


    You may swear to have never texted on the toilet, but show me the techie who says they've never brought their phone or tablet into the bathroom, and I'll show you a liar. In any case, waterproofing just makes solid sense.


    Any survival expert will tell you that where there's life, there's water. But as we at Pure Mobile know, where there's life, there's also tech.

  • A third party manufacturer compared the sizes of upcoming devices to an iPhone 4S case and an iPad 3 case

     


    We love a good rumor, and the big news on everyone's lips this week surrounded some leaked photos that may reveal the dimensions of the upcoming iPhone 5 and iPhone mini.


    MacRumors reported September 10th on pictures released by a third party iPhone and iPad case manufacturer that compare tentative cases for the new devices to an iPhone 4S case and iPad 3 case.


    “The cases were created by case manufacturers in anticipation of the upcoming models. Designs are based on leaked specs coming out of Foxconn factories,” says MacRumors.


    While the new iPhone 5 case is taller than the iPhone 4S, the case for the iPad mini is smaller than the current iPad 3 case

     


    If the specs are right, those who believe bigger is better will be happy to know that the new iPhone 5 will in fact be larger than the current iPhone 4S, though it'll just be taller, not wider, with a 4” diagonal screen.


    As for those who think less is more, the case designed for the new iPad Mini is smaller than the iPad 3 case shown in the image, but not significantly. The new device is rumored to have a 7.85” screen.


    The size comparison as outlined by MacRumors 

     


    As Gizmodo noted, “ if that iPad Mini shell is accurate, the realization that it's not a total dwarf next to the 10-inch iPad, kinda makes the idea of one all the more tantalizing.”


    For now, it's all just speculation, but we're likely to have at least part of the truth on September 12th, when Apple's expected to unveil the iPhone 5 at a press conference. However, we'll have to wait a little longer to see the new iPad Mini, which is expected to be unveiled at some point in October.

    The CES extravaganza comes to an end today.   Many new and upcoming companies vied to showcase breakthrough products and technology this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV.  Like any successful mall, this convention has its premier companies at the show – like Microsoft.  Discover the convenience of online shopping at renowned retailers such as Pure Mobile - your one stop shop for cell phone and mobile device accessories.  PureMobile has an accessory solution for every lifestyle.... This is personal. This is you. This is Shopping Simplified.


    It was good… While it lasted!  2012 Marks Last Year for Microsoft at CES In fact, it was in 1995 that Microsoft founder, Bill Gates first spoke at a CES workshop – at the Hilton. Addressing a small workshop of people, Gates told his freshman audience that the consumer electronics revolution would be social. In turn, the CES and Microsoft have had a symbiotic relationship and turned the event into a tech maelstrom quite unlike anything else.  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.


    Alas, all good things must come to an end. Or at least to a pause. In Microsoft's keynote speech which was delivered by the charismatic CEO, Steve Ballmer, wherein he  announced that in the foreseeable future Microsoft would not be attending the CES event. This certainly captured the audience’s attention. Ballmer followed up with an interview with the one-and-only Ryan Seacrest where they began reviewing Microsoft’s 2012 line.  As a well-known radio personality, Ryan Seacrest enjoys accessories that deliver high quality audio.   Experience the mind blowing clarity of XMI Speakers.  Uncompromised sound quality and a revolutionary design accentuating today’s interactive lifestyle.   Our earpieces and headsets combine sophisticated style and precision engineering that deliver brilliant sound for your total listening pleasure.


    The Windows Phone 7 and how it flips the focus to the consumer by making it people centric (i.e. the vision behind their smartphone’s mobile platform creation). Showing their strength in not only manufacturing their own device, but also integrating the OS with other phone manufacturers, the audience got a peek at Nokia cell phone line up which includes Lumia 710 and Lumia 800.


    It was good… While it lasted!  2012 Marks Last Year for Microsoft at CES This has the whispers of “unlocked cell phone” to their smartphone strategy. The degree that Google Android has employed this has been a factor in its swift global growth. In pairing with other vendors and letting its mobile OS win over customers in conjunction with unlocked devices, they have a greater chance of catching up on some major market shares.


    The presentation continued into ASUS tablets and then into the very exciting Xbox / Kinect technology. Interactive, they have touched on another love of consumers: streamlining devices and gaining meaningful, real world technology. The Kinect can be used as an accessory of sorts to the Lumia 900 (or perhaps the other way around?!). The demos were seriously cool and would challenge even the most dedicated Luddite to play and marvel.

Then checkout  our featured blog  'All You Need to Know on CES 2012' More specifically, how long have you waited to know what tech gadgets, innovative protective accessories, tablets, and smartphones are on the horizon for 2012?


    Sony Shows Off Latest Addition: Xperia S at CESWait no more! Like kids in a candy store, new games, apps and mobile platforms are being devoured  by attendees of this conference. The buzz will launch some lesser known companies that likely have ingenious solutions to how we can better integrate all this technology into daily life. Personally a handsfree accessory or app that would help keep my tablet free of messy hands while cooking would be amazing.  Discover the latest in handsfree technology along with widest online selection of Bluetooth Headsets and BlueTooth Car Kits.  Latest technology from top brand manufacturers.  Hands free functionality is designed for the interactive 'on the go' lifestyle  and allows for safe driving


    While I am on the lookout for such technology, you may be more interested in Sony’s announcement at the CES.   An addition to the Sony  line of cell phones - the Sony Xperia S!  The stats for this newbie are actually pretty impressive: 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch 1280 x 720 display, 1GB of RAM, and an unheard of 12 megapixel rear camera that is all the more impressive for its use of Sony’s Exmor R backlit sensor.   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.


    Sony Shows Off Latest Addition: Xperia S at CES


    For the media lovers out there, a 16GB and 32 GB model will be available. It is unclear why the Xperia S does not have a micro SD memory card slot for additional memory capacity as this is relatively standard to give customers more flexibility and the ability to purchase more memory cards as needed.  Get powered up for work, life and play easily and conveniently with the latest collection of desktop chargers , wall chargers and car chargers.   Get all the power and energy you need for the mobile lifestyle.


    The sleek device will be made available worldwide beginning in March. What we don’t know is the pricing, whether one or both versions will be made available to customers as unlocked. Oh, and don’t forget – this girl is itching to see some smartphone accessories that better work in a woman’s world!

    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.

    On a personal note, my mother is a literature junkie. So, it is no surprise that on their cross country jaunts to visit over the holidays she loads up her smartphone with audio book downloads before hitting the road. As we discussed my newest iPad 2 tablet acquisition and simultaneously recounted the wonderful rendition of Austenland, she insisted I download the audio book app and log in under her name to download it. Just a few short minutes later, the file was available. Her response was “wow. I am seriously impressed at how fast you were able to download and store it without needing additional memory storage cards.”


    Speedracer Meets Mobile Web Browsing Testing.


    And, in this world of instant gratification, speed is king. Especially on our mobile browsers. So which smartphone manufacturer has the need for speed? This is an excellent question considering the varying strengths of these smartphone players. Android is the bees knees in the LTE support category. iOS has the top of the line dual-core A5 chip to tout its excellence. And, Windows Phone has the IE mobile browser that kicks it into beast mode. 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.


     


    This question may already be answered YouTube video posted below - which compares the Lumia 800, iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 (running on the iOS version 4.3).  Put through a gauntlet of Browsermark, Speed Reading, Sunspider, Acid 3, and HTML5 tests... you will be surprised to find which device was the hands down winner.   Experience the mind blowing clarity of XMI Speakers.  Uncompromised sound quality and a revolutionary design accentuating  today's interactive lifestyle.   Our earpieces and headsets combine sophisticated style and precision engineering that deliver brilliant sound for your total listening pleasure



    It was no contest…the iPhone 4S was beyond the best performance. This is really no surprise when considering what is powering these phones. Nokia’s Lumia 800 has a single core processor which could not keep up with iPhone 4S’s dual core A5 chip. Great news for media junkies and browsers alike... as well as for book lovers like myself, worthy of buying a new pair of headphones for some superior lit listening.  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.


    There were, however, a few instances where Window’s Phone 7’s mobile browser overpowered the Safari browser on the iPhone 4’s iOS 4.3. That matchup is a bit questionable when taking into account the older version of iOS that the device was running. The question of carrier grade 3G or 4G speeds and availability may affect this as well. This is another great point for unlocked cell phones which empower customer to break free from service provider long term contracts and negotiate a service plan that better meets their unique lifestyle needs at lower costs.


    As in any kind of real world testing, the results are not are controlled or predictable, but it can still be said that Apple produces a great smartphone that appeals to the mobile browser speed fiends out there.

  • The Big Apple to Host Apple Event
    Posted on January 6, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    Apple sure knows how to brand itself, spin events, and exploit great PR out of most any event. So, it is no surprise that the technology giant is said to be planning a media event for the end of January. All Things D reports that the event will not be centered around the announcement of the next generation tablet, the iPad3, which is rumored to be released in 2012.  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.


    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.


    As the head of many Apple media units (including the iTunes Store, App Store, iBookstore, iAd, and iCloud), Senior VP, Eddy Cue may be announcing the new head of its mobile advertising unit. Bound to be a great addition to continue the global love affair with iPhones and all of the smartphone’s innovative accessories, the mobile ad unit is a powerful arm in promoting Apple and its more accessible smartphones, iPad line of tablets, and related accessories including earpieces & headsets and speaker accessories.


    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!
