  • Hulu spends a lot of time in blocking workarounds, which make it nearly impossible for people to view Hulu on mobile devices or Motorola Milestone Unlocked Android. But if you were willing to pay $9.99 per month then viewing your most favorite shows would not be an issue anymore.


    Jason Kilar, CEO of Hulu has announced officially that Hulu Plus, a subscription, subject to invitation, will allow contents to be watched by fans worldwide outside Hulu.com. If you sign up for the monthly plan of 9.99$ then Hulu will stream episodes of an on-going session and the whole catalogue of shows that are popular like Arrested Development and X-Files (sci-fi legend).
    Right now only select capable television of the Samsung-app, Samsung Blu-Ray Player, and iPad /iPhone owners can use Hulu app as their gadgets support it. However, Hulu Plus is expected to arrive soon on Android as many searches have revealed that the company is researching Android. Moreover Kilar’s statements support our speculation.



    He said that it was just the initial step in their mission to bring us (people) TV at every possible location. They were already working hard on making Hulu Plus compatible on other platforms and devices, especially with the introduction and launch of the Playstation. Considering the increased potential flurry of Google TV, increase in the number of Android applications and tablets, the Android is one of the strong contenders to offer Hulu Plus.


    Non-U.S. Readers need not ignore this notice completely. Even though Hulu now caters only to the U.S it’s trying to expand its service to other countries. There have been many different countries kept on the horizon for the latest developments. A number of financing and licensing deals need to be done in order to achieve this, but one can be absolutely sure that Hulu will not forget anyone.

  • LG Sentio Launched on T-Mobile
    Posted on July 12, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    In a world where smartphones hold a special place in people’s hearts and reign supreme, one would think that dumb phones are a thing of the past. Well, think again! The world may be under the addiction of smartphones like Unlocked  iPhone 4 and the Droid X, but not everyone can afford to get a smartphone. T- Mobile does not normally team up with LG, but in this case has done so, and come out with three state-of-the-art dumb phones. For those who are not aware of the term “dumbphone”, a dumbphone is one which is very similar to a smartphone, but does not have quite all the features that are present in a smart phone. Coming back to LG and T-Mobile, these two mobile giants have come together, possibly for the first time, and launched three dumbphones, and are actually more advanced than you might give them credit for. The three phones are- Sentio, dLite, and GS170. Of these, the Sentio is the most notable.



    The LG's  Unlocked (  Sentio )  comes as close to a smartphone as a dumbphone can get. The Sentio is a touch screen phone, and comes with a virtual QWERTY keyboard. It sports a 3 inch display, and supports the 3G networks provided by T-Mobile. It has a 3 megapixel camera, can shoot videos quite efficiently, and even enables users to record visual voicemails. This phone is GPS activated, and comes with a huge number of pre-loaded widgets, which a user can use to customize the home screen with. The Sentio has an application called Social Buzz, which manages activities like Facebook and Twitter more than efficiently. The phone is currently available in a soft, navy blue color, and is available in very few select retail stores only. It is available online on a two-year contract basis for $69.99, but the market-price of the Sentio has not been decided upon yet.



    For those who cannot quite afford smartphones, dumbphones are just the thing for them. Dumbphones come closest to a smartphone in design, as well as features, and there are many users worldwide, who are satisfied with their dumbphones. Hopefully, the Sentio will also flourish in the market, and bring good luck to the collaboration between LG and T-Mobile.

  • Sprint customers are largely lagging in getting the updates onto their Unlocked HTC Hero and EVO 4G which uses Sense User Interface. Even the most popular of the Sprint handset, the Samsung Moment, is really slow on getting the Android Updates. This is quite detrimental for Sprint users in the United States as unlike other carrier subscribers; they have to wait quite a long time for a release.



    However Sprint, through their blog have told us that since the HTC EVO 4G has sold really well and has been well received by the customers across the board, Sprint will be doing its best to get Android updates to their phones such that their customers can be at the helm on telephone technology. There is further good news for the customers is that the new software which will be released as Android 2.2 on the HTC EVO 4G in the form of an upgrade on this phone.



    Android 2.2, or what is known as Froyo, will bring in a lot of longevity to the HTC Unlocked ( EVO ) phones which otherwise have a really poor battery performance. With the Android 2.2 there is also the possibility of full flash support for the EVO 4G and hence one can get the updates for the Sense UI. It has also been reported that the Froyo enables the EVO 4G to deliver a higher performance for the customer.


    Although it has already been a really long time, one can only welcome the plans for the update to the Motorola Unlocked Milestone Android 2.2. However, tactful reactions are the order of the day as ‘near future’ can be a matter of months for companies like this. Yet, according to the recent rumors which have been around regarding the EVO 4G, one can really hope for a faster launch of the Android 2.2.

  • Cell phone Swipe Cards
    Posted on June 8, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    Whenever you visit any fast food restaurant, one of the most common scenarios is that of seeing people more attached to their Unlocked Mobile Phones rather than what they are eating. You will find them protecting their cell phones from even the slightest amount of grease and oil just so that they can use it to communicate or play a game. Now with different advances in technology, it has become possible to do much more from your cell phone, such as checking into a hotel, booking rooms and now, even opening doors.


    Now instead of having to visit the front desk of any hotel to confirm your booking of any rooms, you can do the very same thing all from the comfort of the interiors of the hotel. No longer will you have to stand in line in a queue behind confused customers wondering whether your turn is going to come or not. Newely created software allows you to do just this. It can open doors for you without you having to wait in line for your swipe card.



    Tested on two different American Holiday Inns, this new application promises a complete change in the way we can book and confirm our reservations. Making use of a “unique audio code,” your Unlocked Cell Phone can act like your very own swipe card. The only downfall associated with this application is that it is newly designed software; chances are that there will be many different bugs present in the software. Also, since the code is being played from an e-mail, you will have to progress through at least 3 different steps to make sure that you have the right combination for opening your door lock. At the same time, since the entire process works on the microphone capability of the doorknob, you need to ensure that there is no disturbance in the vicinity when making use of your swipe card cell phone.

  • Not even a whole two months removed from announcing their Windows Phone 7 Series Microsoft is back today with another event that is expected to reveal its Project Pink lineup which will include two new handsets known as the “Pure” and “Turtle.”  It is unknown whether or not they will run Windows Phone 7 or a completely different OS. 



    With the start of their event Microsoft has made a couple announcements regarding the specs of these two new phones.  Here are the specs for the Kin One.
    · Compact keypad for one-handed texting
    · Multi-touch display
    · 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and SD video recording
    · Wi-Fi
    · GPS
    · External mono speaker
    · 4GB internal memory (enough for 1,000 songs)
    · Media powered by Zune
    With a slightly different design the specs for the Kin Two are also slight different.  Here is what this device is expected to come with.
    · Horizontal sliding QWERTY keypad
    · Multi-touch display
    · 8 megapixel camera with LED flash and HD video recording
    · Wi-Fi
    · GPS
    · External stereo speaker
    · 8GB internal memory (enough for 2,000 songs)
    · Media powered by Zune


    Windows Phone 7 is about simplifying people’s lives, whereas KIN is all about amplifying people’s lives. It represents Microsoft “cranking social up to 11″ for “people who live to be connected, share, express and relate to their friends and family.” Don't forget about getting your Bluetooth headset as well.


    These two new devices are designed to keep people more in touch with their friends and acquaintances via various social media websites.  One of the cool features of the Kin is that it comes with KIN Studio. “It’s your phone, online, on any web browser.” With KIN Studio, all of your call logs, texts, contacts images, videos, and more are stored in the cloud and viewable in a pretty nifty looking timeline. Pretty much everything you do on the KIN is compatible with geo-tagging, so if you forget where you were when you took a particular picture or video you can go online and refresh your memory thanks to the integration of Bing Maps


     I am sure there will be a lot more announcements regarding Project Pink coming from the current Microsoft event and the availability of getting it as an unlocked cell phone.

  • Verizon Wireless recently announced that it will open its own mobile phone applications store on March 29th.  The announcement was made this week at the CTIA Wireless convention in Las Vegas.  This is an interesting move by Verizon as they are entering an already well established market.  Rival companies such as Apple and Google currently already operate their own versions of app stores for the iPhone and various Android based phones.



    The aspect of the Verizon app store that is going to be different and hopefully will differentiate Verizon from their competitors is the ability to pay for apps using your cell phone bill instead of having to create a new account for the app store.  Currently the way the other app stores works is that a consumer will need to set up an entirely new account to use with the app store and are billed separately.  With Verizon’s new store users will be able to make purchases as they please and will just see the charges appear on their monthly cell phone bill which will make paying for the new apps a breeze from your unlocked cell phone.
    With big name brands already entrenched in the mobile app store market it will be interesting to see how Verizon makes their initial splash.  I will be interested to see how the ability to pay for the apps with your monthly cell phone bill will be received by current Verizon consumers.  It certainly does seem to make it much easier to browse the app store and make purchases when all you need to do is confirm your purchase.  However, after an initial account set up this is how the other app stores work so there will not be that much difference between the three big app stores.

  • LG Rumor Touch Launching March 28
    Posted on March 30, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    Sprint recently announced that the LG Rumor Touch will be available starting March 28th.  The cost of this new phone is set at $79.99 with a new two year contract and $50 mail in rebate.  The LG Touch is set to be one of the better cell phones on the market.  Specs for the Touch include a 3 inch WQVGA touchscreen, 2.0 megapixel camera and camcorder, microSD card slot supporting up to 32GB as well as Google search and 3G data capabilities operating on the Sprint EVDO Rec. 0 network.


    LG Mobile Cell Phones
    The LG Touch also offers access to Sprint Navigation, Sprint TV, Sprint Music and Sprint Mobile Email with personal and corporate calendar features.  With the initial launch of the LG Touch on the 28th the phone is set to be released in a blue color.  Two additional colors red and purple are set to be released starting April 18th.
    The LG Rumor Touch has been one of the highly anticipated  phones in recent months.  With its full list of features the LG Rumor Touch is set to be a classic phone for anyone looking to purchase a new device on a budget.  The 3 inch touchscreen and 2.0 megapixel camera are more than enough power for the casual user while the mircoSD card supporting up to 32GB is a nice addition for even the power users.  With that sort of memory capabilities you will certainly be able to take a lot of pictures and videos to store on your phone while carrying around all of your music with you wherever you go.  I am wondering if LG plans to release this phone in any other colors besides blue, red and purple after the second set of phones are released on April 28th?

  • In an announcement to their premier customers Sprint released an account alert asking their customers to “visit us tomorrow for an exciting announcement about a groundbreaking new device.”  No other details were provided but it is rumored that that this “groundbreaking new device” is the long rumored WiMAX smarphone.  This new WiMAX smartphone known as the HTC Supersonic comes equipped with a 4.3 inch screen and Android 2.1 with Sense UI. 


    Releasing a 4G device would certainly fit the “groundbreaking” category and there have already been plans to unveil the phone at CTIA.  There was a web chat transcript that was found on the Sprint Community that seems to corroborate.  In this web chat an interested consumer asks customer support if a new Android device is going to hit the market soon.  The customer support rep does in fact confirm that a new smartphone device is going to be available very soon.   



    The announcement of this new phone is a welcome sight to any consumers who were waiting for a new Android phone to hit the market.  This new HTC Supersonic is supposedly going to be one of the most high powered phones on the market today.  The 4.3 inch screen will make surfing the web and browsing through contacts and music a breeze.  Also, this new mobile device is going to be part of the Android 2.1 OS which is supposed to be much more powerful than the original Android OS. 


     I know that I am quite excited to see what this potentially new unlocked cell phone is actually going to be and what this new announcement is all about.  If it is in fact going to be an  announcement about the new HTC Supersonic than you can expect Sprint CEO Dan Hesse to talk about this in his keynote speech on Wednesday at CTIA.

  • Kyocera has finally decided to enter the Android market by announcing their first Android phone the Zio M6000. The Zio will ship with Android version 1.6. The Zio is a tri-band CDMA EVDO Rev. Which is a handset that supports the 800/1700/1900MHz bands. By utilizing these three bands this makes the Zio compatabile with networks operated by Sprint, Verizon and smaller networks such as Cricket. Other features of the new Android phone by Kyocera include WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. The Zio comes with a 3.5 inch WVGA screen with 800 x 480 pixels. The Zio also features a 3.2 megapixel camera with dedicated camera key and video capture at 30 frames per second. Additional features include a digital compass, accelerometer and support for microSD cards up to 32GB.



    While it is still unknown when any US carriers will offer the Zio it is safe to say that Kyocera is looking to make quite the splash in the Android market. For their first Android phone the Zio is set to be one of the better Android phones on the market. With all of the features that come standard with this particular model the Zio is expected to be a hit in both the US and foreign markets. I am especially excited to check out the digital compass and video capture camera. There are two pretty cool features that most mobile devices do not currently have.


    For their first Android phone it appears as if Kyocera has hit a homerun with the Zio. I will be expecting big things out of them in the future when they learn what more of their consumers are looking for and can incorporate those wishes into newer and more powerful Android phones and for unlocked cell phones.

  • Recently Verizon Wireless and Skype have announced that they will be joining forces and offer Skype’s application to unlocked mobile phone users over the wireless 3G network.  With this easy to use offer Verizon 3G customers who have a data plan can use Skype mobile to:


    -          Make and receive unlimited Skype to Skype voice calls to any Skype user around the globe.


    -          Call international numbers at competitive Skype Out calling rates


    -          Send and receive instant messages to other Skype users


    -          Remain always connected with the ability to see friends’ online presence



    With this new feature Verizon Wireless is basically extending their customer’s unlimited calling community to anyone who uses Skype around the globe.  With Skype quickly becoming one of the most popular instant messaging and VoIP programs on the internet this partnership is a great move for both Skype and Verizon Wireless to help grow the Skype brand.


    Since many people will want to be continuously connected to their Skype conversations and friend list having the ability to carry these conversations on your mobile phone, like the Sony Ericsson Aspen, is a very logical step.  Also, since Verizon Wireless will be rolling out this partnership over the 3G network there should be great reliability for anyone who will be using the Skype platform for their competitive international calling rates.


    It will be interesting to see if any of the other mobile phone carries follow in Verizon’s footsteps and add Skype’s features to their network in the near future.
