  • This is probably the worst thing that could have happened to Verizon. It had planned a business strategy to ensure more profit, but it backfired very badly. Verizon had decided that it would increase its ETF (Early Termination Fees) for its handsets, and make it $350. This motion was taken last year. But Verizon forgot that no one likes ETFs. Verizon customers were positively fuming at this ploy, and this plan didn’t impress any of Verizon’s fans at all. So, the state of California decided to uphold an appeal against Verizon. The state of California decided that this fee was unfair to customers, and decided to appeal in favor of the users. As a result, Verizon will now have to pay $21 million as settlement fee. It will have to award refunds to 175,000 customers.

    Both Verizon and AT&T have very high fees. So, signing a contract and committing to an ETF is a very tricky thing for them. They charge $350 and $325 respectively. They are so money-minded, that it would seem that even after you die, Verizon would want to collect its termination fees. There is one thing these carriers can do to cope with these changes. They can charge a lower fee each month, and start a contract. Therefore, if the user decides to leave, then the user’s cost will be prorated.

    Although this whole thing may seem to be a win for customers, there is nothing to be very happy about. It does not look like things are going to be improving, any time soon in the near future. The cellphone carriers claim that there is only one way they can offer such heavy subsidies. They can only do this by ensuring that the ETFs are in place. This is a precaution they must take, if, just in case a customer tries to run with a smartphone, 2-3 months into the contract.

  • The Unlocked  iPhone 4 was long-awaited by people all over the globe. It is a phone which is feature-packed to the brim, and its camera was the finest in its class. The camera is a 5 megapixels, with a LED flash. The camera can shoot videos in high definition, and the flash can stay on while videos are being shot with it. But people are still in doubt regarding the iPhone 4’s camera capabilities.

    It seems that the iPhone 4’s camera is having some yellowing issues with its photos. Images shot with the iPhone 4 camera in indoor lighting and without any flash sometimes have a yellow or green cast to them. The same photo taken with a 3G camera is not having these problems.

    It is still not clear how many of the unlocked iPhone 4s handset  are having the same problem, but if the problem is widespread, then it will be a major concern for Apple. People were excited when they first learnt that Apple was going to upgrade its phone to 5 megapixels. Apple’s main aim was to make the light sensors better for low-light pictures. But now, if all these pictures are going to come in yellow, then it’s all a useless effort on Apple’s part.

    Apple’s smartphone launch has been plagued by bad omens right from the very beginning. It has seen many problems with the phone. The major problem that first cropped up was the reception issue. The iPhone 4, with all its high-tech gadgetry, had reception problems that made users fumed. But Apple has said it has looked into the matter, and will be introducing a software update within a few weeks.

    But despite all these problems, people are still crazy about the iPhone, and still want to get one. On its launch weekend itself, Apple shipped out 1.7 million units. But still it was not enough to meet customer demands. More and more people want the iPhone 4 Unlocked handset. Hopefully, the crazy fan-following of the iPhone 4 will still persuade buyers to invest in one, and turn a blind eye to its camera problems.

  • Hike in AT&T’s ETF from June
    Posted on July 7, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    From June onwards, AT&T has hiked up its early termination fees (ETFs) to $325 in what might well be a move to ensure that iPhone users are kept locked in.

    The ETF is the fee that a user is to pay when he/she terminates the service contract. The early termination fees are being raised by the company from $175 to $325, which commenced from the starting of June. Incidentally, this roughly coincided with the expected release date of Apple's unlocked iPhone 4G/HD. This increased amount will be applicable to fresh contracts only and on the other hand ETF on feature handsets will drop down to $150. Renewal of a contract for a new iPhone will however get you into the province of this new ETF.

    Naturally this new policy change is rather a hassle but the underlying logic behind AT&T's decision is not that difficult to fathom. Apple's unlocked iPhone 4G/HD will in all probability be having an entry level price of $199 although AT&T has to shell out around $500 to $600 for a single set. Counting that in the reckoning, along with the number of people who are going to purchase the item, it totals up to quite a tidy sum in subsidies. They should certainly be able to get that money back over time due to the mobile data services of the users. Still, this does give enough of a prod for a rethink of strategies. It's an even greater problem for AT&T as many owners of  iPhones 3GS unlocked handset compulsively upgrade to the latest version on an annual basis, expecting the introductory pricing.

    This move is close on the heels of Verizon's hiking up of its ETF to $350 on "advanced devices" citing similar causes. The increased ETF may be another impediment for current AT&T customers to change, especially after rumours that Apple might go with Big Red, thus endangering AT&T's exclusivity with the iPhone.

  • Details were obtained about Apple’s "streaming iTunes" feature at the beginning of July. This move by Apple seems to be a neat way to gain entry into the future which will be heavily in favour of cloud-computing. Most signs point toward the fact that we might be in for quite a wait because the various music labels haven't agreed and their approval is required for this to go through.

    Greg Sandroval, who deals with the digital entertainment and media portion of CNET, is of the opinion that the music labels have not acquiesced to this form of service until now, and naturally Apple Unlocked Iphone 4 will not be eager to trigger a confrontation with those that supply its online music store.

    It should also be noted that Apple has not yet obtained the requisite licenses from the four major music recording companies, as has been told by insiders in the industry to CNET. They also confirmed that Apple was indeed discussing the matter with the music labels but the record executives have not yet been intimated of the entire details.

    In the eyes of a few of the top music labels, Apple could allow iTunes users to be able to stream music from a home PC to other devices without the need for fresh negotiations. However, if Apple were to stream songs from its own servers to other computers and other gadgets then Apple must broker a fresh deal, as told by these sources to CNET.

    As an industry, the music sector is still in regressive mode, yet to accept the open-sharing nature of the Internet. Mobile music might be essential in boosting the industry, as exhibited by Rhapsody's iPhone4 Unlocked headset app, rivals Google's Android's streaming and Microsoft with its Zune Passup. Apple iTunes streaming could cross both of these, thanks to its established users, whenever it gets into the scene.

  • Android’s new baby, the 3.0, or what is more popularly known as the Gingerbread is soon to released but it has come to our attention that the rumor mill got a little over excited and certain news that we had got are not entirely true. This in fact has been confirmed by Android though not through any official statements but tweets. However, we will look at that later. Let us see what the Gingerbread actually does offer us.

    Okay, first and foremost we can definitely say that this version of the Android will be providing the user an experience which is far better than its predecessors. Usage is far easier and smoother in all aspects. The main aim for this enhanced user experience which they have admitted is that they want to be bringing the experience of the little green robot as close as possible to the Unlocked iPhone 4. Although historically this has not been the case as the Android experience has been behind the iPhone. However, we feel that Android should keep in mind that the mainstream Android users only want a smooth user experience.

    Moving onto the looks, Google wants to weed out the need for third party skins as fast as possible. However this is somewhat difficult as the mobile handset manufacturers will be coming up with their skins ala the MotoBlur or the Sense, such that they maintain a unique image in the market.

    Coming back to the false rumors that we had heard, it was said that the Gingerbread needed a 512 MB RAM and a 1GHz processor. This meant that phones like the Motorola Unlocked Milestone  Droid would not be able to use this version. In this relation Dean Morrill Android’s open source and compatibility head has tweeted saying, “do not assume that any rumors floating around are true.”

  • There has been much anticipation regarding the Unlocked Motorola Milestone ( Droid 2) . But rumors are rife that the Droid 2 will be hitting the shelves on August 23rd, and will be shipping in with the Android 2.2 (Froyo) out of the box.

    This will be the first device in the United States to actually come shipped with the Froyo. The Droid X will receive the Froyo, likely in August. If Motorola can get the Froyo running on the Droid X, then getting it to run successfully on the Droid 2 should not pose much of a problem. This could be an indication that the software will be released for other devices as well, in the near future.  The Droid X will be receiving the Froyo update this August. Moreover, if Motorola can get Froyo to run on the Droid X with its custom skin, it would be an easy task for Motorola to get Froyo on a stock Android device.

    But there is speculation whether the timing for introducing the Droid 2 is healthy for the Droid X’s market. The introduction of the Droid 2 can very possibly steer people away from the Motorola's Unlocked Milestone Droid (X). But some people are of the opinion that the majority will wait for the Droid X, and not opt for the Droid 2.

    The most significant difference between the two handsets is their software. But other than this, the Droid 2 has a QWERTY keyboard. On top of that, the Droid 2 will receive its software updates before the Droid X. So, these are the places where the Droid 2 beats the Droid X. But if people are looking for an entertainment device, then they should opt for the Droid X.

    There’s much speculation over everything; so, its better that people wait and hopefully, the Droid 2 will come out on 23rd August. People will then know for sure which one is better- the Droid 2 or Droid X.

  • A look at Sprint’s Epic 4G
    Posted on July 6, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    The recent release of Sprint's Epic 4G showcases it's place of pride in Samsung's Unlocked Galaxy S series of devices. This new range of smartphones offer cutting-edge standards in screen real-estate, speed and quality of content resulting in a remarkable user experience.

    Says Steve Elfman, president, Network Operations and Wholesale, "Sprint has now been able to branch out into a new, diverse field with the second 4G-capable smartphone. There are other powerful devices that currently offer such 4G capabilities and the Samsung Epic 4G is the latest recruit.  We value all our customers and as such leverage increased data speeds, thereby providing all users with the ability of gaining all the required functionality and high definition entertainment they need. "

    The Epic 4G boasts a full QWERTY slide-out keyboard has well as WiMax connectivity - somehting which only the Sprint device has in the Galaxy S series, making it quite future-proof as far as connectivity issues go.

    The handset itself is robust and looks like it can stand up to wear and tear. The physical QWERTY keypad is quite easy to manipulate with fingers and doesn't add as much bulk to the phone as might be expected.

    The screen itself it 4 inches, quite large enough for easy use. It's Super AMOLED touchscreen produces brilliantly crisp images.It gives a very realistic rendition of color matching that of original content. The response time is considerably fast, which results in reduction of "ghosting" images.The wide viewing angles prevents distorted or blurred images. The design is on the whole more accurate and has a greater degree of touch-responsiveness.

    "With the Unlocked Samsung (Epic 4G) , we have been able to introduce a new member into our smartphone range. Users will be able to have a mobile fitted with various features including speed and enhanced functionality," says Omar Khan, chief strategy officer for Samsung Mobile.

  • The Drawbacks of the iPhone 4
    Posted on July 2, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    The iPhone craze has gripped the world by storm. There are millions of iPhone users all over the globe, and they are more than satisfied with their beloved iPhones. So naturally, when Apple announced the arrival of the unlocked iPhone 4, millions all over the world were in frenzy. There are many features, which makes the iPhone 4 stands above the rest. Among these features is its camera.

    The iPhone 4’s camera is the best in its class. It has a 5-megapixel camera, and a LED flash. The camera can take photos with excellent clarity and can shoot videos in high definition. The iPhone 4 camera shoots videos in 720p resolution. But there was something that the iPhone 4 could not do. Users found that the phone, what with all its superb features, could not upload videos directly on the internet. Now, this is a very easy task, and all would have thought that the iPhone 4 could carry out this task in the blink of an eye. But it was not so. The phone does upload videos, but minimizes its resolution, and is unable to upload videos at a resolution of 720p. The only way you could upload videos and keep the 720p resolution as well, is to connect the iPhone 4 to your computer, import the video using the import tool of your choice, and then upload it to YouTube or any other site.

    People buy the iPhone because it takes high quality pictures and videos. They like to share videos with friends and family online. They like uploading videos on the go. But the inability of the iPhone 4 unlocked handset to do so will strongly hamper its fan following. Apple spent hours in making a masterpiece, but forgot just this small detail. Hopefully, Apple will look into the matter and will see to it that no such glitches are there in the future.

  • President Barrack Hussein Obama has introduced many things since his rise to office, and they have been enforced to a great extent also. His most recent enforcement is to boost mobile services for the good of the people.

    President Obama, along with his colleagues in the White House have issued a memorandum, which asks the executive departments and agencies to boost mobile services, so much so that 500 MHz of spectrum will be made available within the next ten years. The spectrum made available will be coming from commercial, as well as federal bands. The memorandum has been issued to the Secretary of Commerce, and the Secretary of Commerce is to work together with the Federal Communications Commission to make Obama’s drive possible.

    According to the President, the era in global wireless technology can only advance if there are more spectrums available. There will be multiple new developments in the fields of wireless devices, networks, new applications, which will help in the progress of economy. But to experiment with these devices and to successfully use them, more spectrums are needed. Since there is a shortage of spectrum, the available quantity should be used more efficiently.

    There has been the issue of scarcity of licensed spectrum available. No new operators are being able to provide wireless broadband services due to shortage of licensed spectrum. And if unlicensed spectrum is used, then there could be no guarantee of either connectivity or that of quality. As more and more people are using unlocked  smartphones and other wireless devices to access the web on the go, it could pose a serious problem for providers. The President’s drive will be a beacon of hope for consumers and providers alike.

    The Obama-led government sees the phone Internet as a major help in bridging the digital divide. The digital divide is in rural areas mostly, and Obama wants to overcome these shortcomings and encourage jobs and innovation.
