Moshi for iPad

    Acer has long been a key player in the computer world. Their strong showing in the personal computer market space should have indicated a propensity to do well in the tablet market (here is an interesting inforgraphic on Tablet Takeover) the as another “endpoint segment.” So far that is not the case.


    Acer Continues to Tackle Tablet Market


    2011 saw disappointing sales for the  Acer Iconia Tablet, but they are determined to persevere with tablet releases in 2012. Despite this continuation, there are rumors that Acer may be slowing its tablet production in the upcoming year. Acer’s founder, Stan Shih, did state that they are not following trend s of the rumor mill and the company is not ready to give up on tablets. Also, they will be continuing with their smartphone production and have no projects on the chopping block at the moment in contradiction of recent reports.


    Will Acer turn to innovative mobile accessories, such as protective bags, sleeves and cases to boost customer loyalty and sales in an increasingly competitive market? The New Year will bring news of this. The manufacturer may take the route of increasing its user base with unlocked cell phones. Or it may attempt to corner markets with signing exclusivity contracts with carriers. This writer’s take is that the smartphone and tablet manufacturer will be better suited to winning over the hearts and minds of the consumer market than riding the coattails of cellular carriers that are easily and frequently vilified by governments and consumers alike.


    The founder made sure to note in his statement to DigiTimes that his Taiwan based company was slow to get its start in the notebook market as well. Taking the slow and steady method, Acer did become one of the world’s most recognizable and top PC vendors. Certainly not a competitor to take out of the race precipitously.

    One last reminder: Blackberry readers and users, go get your free gift! A few weeks ago we let you know about some lovely apps being made available free by RIM. A conciliatory action, the manufacturer extended the gift with goodwill to make amends for the service outage that occurred a few months ago.  These thirteen apps are only available through December 31st, so if you are inclined to procrastinate until January 1st, be prepared to pay regular price.  Let the latest trend setting fashionable accessories express your unique style!  Discover an extensive array of award-wining design protective cases and skins that deliver modern style, stunning design and smart protection.  Make your mobile devices stand out.  Customize your look - how cool can you be?


    HoHoHo! Blackberry’s Merry… Sorry?Here is a listing of the apps you can choose from : Shazam, Encore, Vlingo, DriveSafely Pro, Bubble Bash 2, The Sims 3, Nobex Radio Premium, Bejeweled, N.O.V.A., Photo Editor Ultimate, SimCity Deluxe, iSpeech Translator Pro, Texas Hold’em Poker 2 and DriveSafe.ly Enterprise.


    The question remains – will the goodwill gesture help heal some of the debacles of the past year that include the foundation rattling PlayBook jailbreak? Thankfully for RIM, a new year is around the corner where they can continue to make amends and extending positive public relation actions to win back their lost market share.   Re-discover music with 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


    Luckily in the current mobile technology environment, RIM can make an impact through its tablet offerings, Honeycomb OS release, and the plethora of manufacturer approved accessories that make any Blackberry collection complete.  Enhance your mobility and turn your device into a power tool!  Discover our select accessories such as , as stylus & pens, SD Micro memory cards, batteries, speakers and glider gloves specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    HoHoHo! Blackberry’s Merry… Sorry?Another strategy the flailing Canadian company could take is pursuing the unlocked cell phone market to win over the more discerning customer pool, but with new devices released (and depending on the country they are being released in) there is no saying how that will play out in the coming months for the North American crowd.


    All in all, we cannot make commentary on the success of the free apps as it will not end until 2012 is already upon us, but RIM is sure to stay on our radar for what it brings to the table in the coming year (whether it be good, bad or ugly!).

    Another one bites the dust! LG to move to Android!


    Earlier this week LG dished the dirty details on the plans to upgrade the upcoming Android 4.0 release – Ice Cream Sandwich. With the latest waffling over what LG phones will be brought to the US, the Monday announcement brought a glimmer of good news to the North American market as it did indicate that the ICS migration will include some US handsets.

The other LG handsets to follow suit in the Ice Cream Sandwich line include the Prada phone, the Optimus 2X, Optimus Sol, myTouch Q, and the Eclipse. Not to limit the year’s announcements, the third quarter is slated to see an update released for the Optimus 3D (also known to consumers as the Thrill 4G in the AT&T line up), the Optimus Black, the Optimus Big, the Optimus Q2 and the Optimus EX.  Break away from locked-in carrier service provider contracts.  Discover the freedom of unlocked cell phones... choose your preferred carrier  and negotiate a better service contact that best meets your interactive life.

    Any French woman will confirm that the core of a brilliant wardrobe is rooted in trend-setting fashion designs and uniquely personalized with high quality accessories that glamorize and accentuate her features and personality.    So bring on the adorning scarves, jewelry, shoes and bags.  Since we are all, to a certain extent, arbiters of fashion,  it is no surprise that more and more of us choose to personalize our mobile devices, such as unlocked cell phones, tablets, iPods and MacBooks with accessories that reflect our personalities and interactive lifestyles.


    Oh la la... Nexus Galaxy Gets Officials Glammed UpWith that in mind, it looks as though Samsung Galaxy Nexus owners are in luck this holiday season. New and official accessories for this Android golden child are now available via pre-order. Been pining for a desktop dock or perhaps a car charger? These high end accessory add-ons will make your experience that much more enjoyable and allow you to get the most out of your smartphone investment.


    The official list of these brand specifics accessories includes the DesktopDock with an HDMI port, a Desk Stand (comes with a 3.5mm jack), and an additional stand with a charging port for a supplemental battery.

Across the board, these accessories have a microUSB port so charging during use is an option.  Discover the widest  selection of  SD Flash Memory cards.  Extend your mobile device memory to hold a huge inventory of images, songs and documents.


    Alas, quality does come with a price tag (another French-ism that rings true under the word “cher”). The two docks and the vehicle holder will be around $80 CAD. The battery charger stand is approximately $25 CAD, perhaps a more reasonable stocking stuffer gift for the Galaxy Nexus users in your life.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Innovative protection solutions allow you to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside our brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.

    When news is first released of up and coming software updates, new smartphone designs, or really mobile tech related, blogs start buzzing and consumers are on the ball. Watching to see what the manufacturers, OS companies, and carriers will do with all this… newness. Will the latest smartphone be unlocked? Will the manufacturers release cutting edge accessories with the smartphone? How will they make this technology more streamlined into everyday life?  Unlocked cell phones enable you the freedom to break free from service providers long-term locked in service plans.


    All that Glitters Eventually Fades – Galaxy Nexus GlitchesWhen the hype dies down, the downloads have been made, and the beautiful mobile device in the customer’s hands is a little less shiny, the reports of glitches and problems come out of the woodwork. So in a now familiar song and dance routine, it is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus’ turn to step onto the stage and hear the critiques.


    The first complaint on the list has to do with the multi-touch functionality of the display. Apparently some apps can cause a failure of this function. What is more disconcerting is that the issue is not resolved when those problematic apps are closed and that the loss of multi-touch functionality is seen other apps as well. The only fix at the moment is switching off the display and then turning it back on. When using in the car for satellite navigation, this particular flaw could be dangerous without a car holder to keep the device as hands free as possible.  Discover the widest online selection of Bluetooth Headsets and BlueTooth Car Kits. Hands free functionality is designed for the interactive 'on the go' lifestyle  and allows safe driving.


    All that Glitters Eventually Fades – Galaxy Nexus GlitchesFortunately, the causes of the issue are looking to be addressed and mitigated in a quick manner. The transition from major OS updates on smartphones can have a lagging effect on legacy apps that may not be updated to be compatible with the newest OS, causing glitches and hiccups (like this latest ICS upgrade for the Galaxy Nexus).   Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  The latest innovative protection solutions allow you to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside our brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


     


    The fact that the problem does persist when the apps are closed points to a more challenging problem on the operating system, but Galaxy Nexus is running version 4.0.2. These errors haven’t been reproduced on the Nexus S which is on the next OS version, so looks to be already fixed! If this particular set of flaws is a deal breaker, perhaps the Nexus S would be a better fit…

    Samsung Omnia breathes new life into Windows smartphone OS


    Some people would look at current market share distribution for Windows OS smartphones and give a shrug “meh – 2% of the market? Not a likely contender.” It is true that Microsoft hasn’t had the easiest road breaking into this new era of pocket PCs (aka smartphones), but the latest joint venture with European feature phone giant, Nokia, looks to be a step in the right direction. What would a giant step in the right direction be? Pairing up its OS with a Samsung handset. This is precisely what they have down with the Samsung i8350 Omnia W, a move that is bound to shake things up as Samsung has quickly become the Android golden child of smartphone manufacturing.  Let the latest trend setting fashionable accessories express your unique style!  Discover award-wining design protective cases and skins that deliver modern style, stunning design and smart protection.  Make your mobile devices stand out.  Customize your look - how cool can you be?


    Time for the good, the bad, the ugly and a few ideas of rectifying some of the bad and ugly.  The Omnia W isn’t revolutionary. It’s a far sight more attractive than its predecessor, the Omnia S, but is still a midrange phone intended to compete in the North American market. Its most notable features? Powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU and the Mango 7.5 OS, great battery life and screen clarity with the Super AMOLED touchscreen, Mobile Office document viewer / editor (one of the features that makes this a great buy for business professionals), and a multitude of social network integration and cloud services.   break free from long-term locked in service contract... unlocked cell phones enable you to enjoy the freedom of choosing your service provider and negotiating the service plan that best meets your interactive lifestyle.


    Samsung Omnia breathes new life into Windows smartphone OS


    Now for where the Omnia S is lacking… Storage (it is non-expandable and there is no mass storage), no Flash support in browser (so no streaming your favorite guilty pleasure from ABC.com while on the go), and no video support are the most notable. Luckily these are shortcomings are either addressable by purchasing external storage or SD memory cards and investing in a separate media device for shooting video and streaming Flash content.


    While the Omnia S doesn’t have the most dazzling internal stats, processor, or operating system, this Windows / Samsung collaboration does hit the intended mark of being elegant, aesthetically pleasing, business oriented smartphone for the a midrange market that integrates the best part of Microsoft and Windows: ease of use. They have made social media, texting, and the new ways we communicate all integral in the People Hub and have stayed with the current “Siri” trend of voice activated commands.


    Samsung Omnia breathes new life into Windows smartphone OSOn the bright side, accessories such as Bluetooth headsets, car chargers as well as protective cases and skins along with screen protectors.


    For its shortcomings, there seem to be few that can’t be overcome with a bit of extracurricular accessory acquisitions and eventual Windows OS updates. As with any smartphone, this writer chalks much of it up to personal preference and how individuals use their devices. With plenty of unlocked phones, OS, and competitive carriers out there, it is a buyer’s market. So investigate the options, usage plans, and your must-haves in a mobile device and happy hunting!

    Android OS lovers alert! All the buzz around the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich update has become tangible! Rumors are abounding that the Samsung Galaxy SII (which is an Ice Cream Sandwich ROM) has been tied to a technology leak across the pond. The international version of the Samsung Galaxy SII will be getting an update that will wow customers: Wi-Fi calling features. There is still no news on other carriers implementing this feature with unlocked cell  phones, but the full ICS release is still further out.


    ICS Becomes Tangible to Certain Customers


    As with any emerging technology, the ICS ROM has its quirks and flaws which will be worked out in the last stages of development and beta testing. But, seeing Ice Cream Sandwich in action after the many hours of speculation volleyed between the techies of the smartphone world paints anxious Samsung end-users with a promising picture. With a major upgrade (v2.3 to v4.0.01), users can generally see some major differences whether they are good, bad or ugly. Industry indicates a very seamless transition in going from one version to the next.   Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with our stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases accessories.


     


    What customers will notice and really appreciate is the new task switcher. It will allow you to dismiss apps with a single swipe and then become a task manager. Also, aesthetics and maneuverability through the web browser were modified slightly but shouldn’t evoke emotional extremes of love and hate towards the new OS. Regardless of your take on it, lovely accessories can get you to extremes of aesthetics. The latest  trend setting fashionable cases and skins accessories express your unique style.  Make your mobile devices stand out.  Customize your look - how cool can you be?


    To walk through the phone and the ICS OS, the following video is available.

  • Carrier IQ to face the Feds
    Posted on December 16, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    By Aldo Panessidi


    Carrier IQ is getting beat up. Amid the flurry and speculation around the use of its stealth-ware on handsets for certain carriers, the company now has to contend with a federal investigation. This is prompted by the software’s ability (and use of that ability) to track a number of activities conducted on smartphones including SMS and browsing without the users’ knowledge. And then sends that information to the carrier to use it as they see fit. Alas, it doesn’t take a legal eagle to note the potential for serious privacy law infringements.   Unlocked cell phones provide an excellent way to protect yourself against carrier tracking your personal SMS and mobile usage.


    Carrier IQ to face the Feds


    In the wake of this bombshell, The Washington Post reports that Carrier IQ execs met with officials from the FCC (Federal Communication Commission) and also with the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) on Tuesday. The article also included this response from the Carrier IQ representative, Mira Woods, “We are complying with all investigations at this time as we have nothing to hide […] we have been completely transparent through this process.”  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Discover the latest in innovative protection solutions...   stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases allow you to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside our brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    Questions regarding these practices and technology first arose this September which Carrier IQ was able to quell. Unfortunately for the software company, a security researcher by the name of Trevor Eckhart recently thrust the company back into the spotlight and now into the arms of the FTC and FCC. While Carrier IQ insists that its software is actually innocuous and “collects enough information to understand the customer experience with devices on our network and how to devise solutions to use and connection problems,” Eckhart was able to prove that the company actually collected and shared data that could include personal data, location information, and key strokes. What better advertisement for unlocked smartphones is there?  Discover the 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 safe driving.


    Carrier IQ to face the FedsAs this is the kind of scandal that breathes life into 1984-esque conspiracy theories, it is no surprise that Tuesday also brought further allegations were made against the FBI, insinuating that the bureau may also be taking advantage of this technology to silently spy and collect information on smartphone users. The prompt for this accusation was the denial of a Freedom of Information Act request made to the bureau in regards to the Carrier IQ scandal. Consumers would be well advised to research the practices of carriers and manufacturers in this matter and leverage unlocked cell phones to protect privacy and information.


    Smartphone manufacturers and carriers alike have also entered the fray to let the public know whether they use Carrier IQ’s software or now. Unfortunately, a public that feels betrayed and spied upon (and is still unaware of exactly what information has been gathered and shared from their smartphone usage) is not at ease or consoled by their statements. No doubt, class action lawsuits will be the next step in this ever unraveling drama.

    Ready. Set. Annnnnd Go!  Android vs. iOS Faceoff


    Imagine your college days where you spent hours vying with Nintendo 64 MarioKart rivalries. Then those hours invested unearthing secret jumps and shortcuts to gain an advantage and leave your competitors in the dust. Technically there were eight contenders. But you and your rival knew it was really just between the two of you.   Let  trend setting fashionable accessories express your unique style!  Our extensive array of award-wining design protective cases and skins deliver modern style, stunning design and smart protection.  Make your mobile devices stand out.  Customize your look - how cool can you be?


    In perfect strategy mode, the grand prix allowed for the non-threatening competitors to get some shots in and give you an advantage. Battle mode was just too straightforward and messy.  This is eerily reminiscent of the global competition between Google’s Android OS and Apple’s iOS.  Unlocked cell phones enable you to break free from service provider shackles... choose your preferred service provider and negotiate a service contract that better meets your individual interactive needs.


    Ready. Set. Annnnnd Go! Android vs. iOS Faceoff


    Those players that helped shape the market initially are rapidly faltering under the momentum of these two dominant players.   2011 saw a clear break from the pact for both Android, which holds a majority 53% of the market, and iOS who continues to grow with 29%. RIM keeps faltering (down to 11% market share).  The previously mighty Microsoft fumbles over its feet with a meek 2% toe hold on the mobile device mountain. How much this has to do with unlocked device availability isn’t noted, but research indicates this is a huge driver in Google Android’s exponential growth.  XMI speakers deliver uncompromised sound quality and a revolutionary design accentuating  today's interactive lifestyle.   Earpieces and headsetscombine sophisticated style and precision engineering that deliver brilliant sound for your total listening pleasure


    To further explain, Connected Intelligence’s executive director (Ross Rubin) said. “The competitive landscape for smartphones, which has been reshaped by Apple and Google, has ultimately forced every major handset provider through a major transition.”  The same Ross Rubin continued with, “for many of them, 2012 will be a critical year in assessing how effective their responses have been.” Consumer driven devices, accessories, and apps are huge markers for success as smartphones and tablets are increasingly integrated into day to day needs and usage.  Discover the innovative protection solutions which allow you to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with our stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.

    Samsung ’Breaks out the Bubbly for a Record 2011'!


    We applaud Samsung for surpassing the 300 million unit mark this year.  This is considerable growth over the previous 2010 when their sales totaled around the 280 million unit mark. This is a first in the company’s history and Samsung confirmed the sales reporting to Reuters. One can only assume that this success will translate into cornering more of the tablet market with  their family of Samsung Galaxy Tablets as well in the coming year.


    When reviewing the most recent report from the market research and analysis firm, Strategy Analytics, Samsung’s mobile phone sales to distribution channels in the third quarter alone this year was 88 million. Clearly mobile device and unlocked cell phones are playing a major role in this South Korean company’s success. Another consideration should be the Android platform as well. It allows for a more open, global reach, that can only increase mobile device and protective accessories sales worldwide.


    Samsung ’Breaks out the Bubbly for a Record 2011'!Android fans and tech savvy consumers continue to rave about the Samsung Galaxy S II cell phone which contributes to the stellar success of these smartphones for the company.  In fact, Samsung confirmed that its smartphone shipments last quarter totaled up to 27.9 million units. This number equates to another gold star for the company – it is now the number one smartphone vendor in the world by shipment volume. This success could in part be attributed to the availability of unlocked Samsung devices that create sales opportunities for those same savvy consumers in search of the most cost effective smartphone plan.  .   Accessories are designed to protect, personalize and enhance your mobile devices.  Discover the latest innovative protective solutions and premium electronic accessories from the industry's most leading brands


    While their market leadership and achievements allows Samsung to  bask in the spotlight...  they don’t intend to rest on their laurels. For as the company’s president and head of mobile business, JK Shin, stated Sunday, ”We look forward to extending this success going into 2012.”
