  • Vlingo, the maker of a popular Voice command application for a number of cell phone platforms, responded to the launch of Google’s Voice Actions application, this was done by offering Vlingo’s Android application free of cost. Vlingo stated in its blog that its Voice command application is better than the Google version in many respect and also offers similar functionality. In order to compete with the application by Google, Vlingo has now started to offer the Android version free of cost so that it is easier for the user to compare the features of the products.


    Vlingo states that their product has advantages over the one from Google. Vlingo hints, Google has a constraint because it has to promote its services and other content while being a separate developer, Vlingo can take the best of Google and the other services and mix them up.



    Vlingo’s Voice command application does provide some features that that cannot be found in Google’s Voice Actions. These features include Safe Reader, this application reads incoming email messages and texts. Vlingo is available on many platforms like Unlocked Blackberry phone and the iPhone and also on more than one version of Android. Though Google’s voice actions may be attractive for Android, the only Android version in which it is available is 2.2.


    So… a few questions appear before us. Will Android users choose Vlingo over voice actions now that Vlingo is available free of cost? How will everybody take Vlingo’s move to offer such a huge discount and make its app free? It does speak a lot when a company actually tries to compete rather than bad mouth its opponent.

  • Dr. Ataken Peker, the founder of Liquidmetal Technologies said that in the making and design of Apple’s new wireless antennas Liquidmetal’s shapeless metal alloys might be used. Dr. Ataken Peker pointed out at an interview which was held by Cult of Mac, that the properties which Liquidmetal hold, makes it a very useful material for an antenna. This can be a reason behind Apple’s signing of a broad licensing agreement with the company.


    Commonly illustrated as metallic glass, the different alloys that go into the making Liquidmetal provides great strength at minimum weights, utmost durability or wear resistance, and the softening temperature being low, it is easier to mould it into designs and shapes that are complex in nature. Liquidmetal is already being used in various consumer products such as sports equipments especially skis, golf clubs etc. jewellery, and also in electronic equipments where it appears in USB thumb drive casings, MP3 players, and cell phones. The wireless modem, Verizon USB727, which is famous for its excellent reception capability uses Liquidmetal technology in its antenna. Moreover, Apple also uses the same technology in the newly launched Magic Trackpad.



    Apple may not be eyeing for Liquidmetal to be solely used in the making of the simple antenna, it may as well be used in the seamless, complex casings of products such as iPod, unlocked  iPhone4 and the iPad. Moreover this technology can also be used to make novel casings that receive radio signals. The Bezel Antenna that is used in iPhone 4 can be replaced by an outer casing that receives signals thus making the whole casing itself an antenna. Liquidmetal has properties that allow it to be bended without fatigue or erosion of any sort so it can also be used to make one piece foldable devices too.

  • The Simon Property Group, that current owns more than 350 malls in the United States of America has teamed up with a startup from Silicon Valley called Shopkick in order to devise a way to make cell phone coupons work.


    Starting from August, around 25 malls in the cities of Loa Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York will have devises installed that will help Shopkick in its effort to make its cell phone coupons work. The malls owned by Simon Property Group, have on an average, 140-150 stores and the shops that will be participating in this scheme will have to have speakers installed near its entrance, which will emit a high frequency sound that is beyond the audibility limit of humans, but the frequency will match that of the microphones in mobile phones. When a customer walks by the store, they can activate the application, which is by the way, only available on unlocked iPhone4 and Android powered devices, and will start to receive points, discount offers, news and updates about what the shop has to offer and so much more that the shop could use to get you inside and cajole you to part with your money.


    Four other big guns in the retail business are also using the latest application from Shopkick, the most recognizable being Macy’s Big Buy, although the other three wished to remain anonymous. Macy’s will have the technology up and running in almost 25% of its store in one week in the test phase and if the experiment goes well, they will expand it to the other stores as well. Sources reveal the Macy’s stores in San Francisco might be the first ones to have this technology.


    However, the skepticism about it is still there and experts believe that it will drive young people to shop online even more.

  • Gangster goes to Miami
    Posted on August 22, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    It was only a year back, when Gangster: West Coast Hustle was released by Gameloft. The obvious inspiration for it was the Grand Theft Auto series by Rockstar Games. And as it seems, Gameloft has again been ‘inspired’ by the series and will be launching the follow up Gangster: Miami Vindication in a few weeks.


    The backdrop of the game is beautiful Miami. The game is said to be full of unrestricted environments where you will be required to take up missions, with a combination of action and driving sequences and so you better brush up on those skills of yours phone. As it was with its predecessor, here also, you will be required to brawl, steal, kill i.e., get involved with a number of criminal activities as you advance through the game. The company has promised to surpass all previous levels of 3D graphics, as it looks to take advantage of the new Retina Display technology in the iPhone 4.



    A trailer of the upcoming game was released by the company also to give gamers a sneak peak of what is to come, what they could expect from the game. The trailer looks promising, although some of the vehicles lack a few minor details, as well as some of the characters which could have been made to be much more detailed. Knowing these kinds of games lack details in its characters, it is very difficult to understand how even the Retina Display of the Unlocked iPhone 4 will help with the lack of quality in vehicles and models of characters.



    Gangster: West Coast Hustle was very enjoyable and was immensely popular and those who loved the original game are surely looking forward to the new one, however, with such low key details, it might be hard for the company to keep hold of its fan base.

  • As the BlackBerry unlocked 9800 Torch and Motorola DROID 2 go head to head it seems that both AT&T as well as Verizon will be laughing their way to the bank. The DROID 2 is being distributed by Verizon and the time for pre-sale has passed with Verizon now stocking up the sets in their stores with people queuing to get their hands on one of these sets.



    The D2 is offered by Verizon for a price of $199 that is after calculating a $100 rebate for mail-in orders or an online discount for an agreement for a two year agreement. A purchase in-store will help you avoid any waiting for the deliveries of the set but will instantaneously increase your up-front costing. Simply put $100 rebates are valid for purchases made in-store and purchases made online only. Purchases from any third party retailer will cost you $299.


    For those looking to upgrade to the DROID 3 as soon as it releases, the 20 month default contract length will be a hindrance so as a recommendation go for the one-year contract which will allow you to upgrade before you apply for the next contract. Any one who owns the original Verizon Motorola Unlocked DROID will fill you in on the pains of an upgrade if you wish to do so in the contract period. Despite Verizon’s end-of-year upgradation plan, contractual issues prevent D1 owners who are on two-year agreements find an upgrade to D2 a difficult affair to say the least.



    A one year plan on the D2 will cost you $269 after a %100 rebate which is a $70 hike on the two year plan but the deal is you still get to upgrade to the D# with ease. A monthly plan will push the price of your D2 to a pricey $559. A termination fee of $350 applies for early cancellation of contract and a minimum requirement of a data plan worth $29.99 per month is also set up in the terms and conditions. Complications galore, but the set may well be worth it.

  • The Android has arrived! Well technically it arrived a long time back when Google officially released it, but the sales report figures now prove that Google Android has indeed arrived. Brace yourselves people, Google Android sales have beaten figures for the Apple unlocked iPhone4 globally. Need a bigger shock still? Google Android sales have also beaten sales figures for the BlackBerry in the United States. The Android invasion is on! The numbers in all practicality are not very surprising, since several research firms confirm that Android sales are going very strong indeed. Android devices according to Gartner have had 10.6 million sets shipped out into the market this quarter, clearly edging out iOS to be placed third overall, which culminates to close to 17.2% of the market share. What inspires awe is the fact that this is in fact a growth of 850% for Android in a matter of one year.


    Android’s incredible sale figures this quarter is dedicated to the fact that it managed availability across several mobile operators, that too on numerous mobile devices. It has been powering pretty high-profile, high end devices like the Samsung unlocked Galaxy S mobile devices and the HTC EVO 4G.


    A report says that Apple sold around 9 million iPhones this quarter, which culminates to 14.2% share of the mobile market. Out of this the unlocked iPhone 4, itself had sold three million sets in a matter of 3 weeks. Apple, despite not having the biggest market share still posts a higher profit from sales because of the higher profit margin per device it holds out. Before we end up too excited with Google Android or with the Apple iPhone, we would do well to note that RIM and Nokia are still on top of the mobile mountain, when it comes to pure market share. Till date Symbian OS is still the most popular platform for smartphones in the world today commanding close to 41.2% share of the market, with BlackBerry posting a share of 18.2%.

  • It has been recently announced that New York City will now be connected fully with internet no matter where you go. After Transit Wireless through there revolutionary CEO Alex Mashinsky pushed through the plans to get Wi-Fi in the New York subway network, are now planning on getting Wi-Fi into the one thousand odd livery cars which are operating in New York City. This plan is expected to be completed by the fall this year and there are more plans to expand the network of these vehicles as soon as possible. In a recent statement given to the press, Mashinsky commented on their plans to expand the network of vehicles where he said that they were looking at a major expansion in this regard. The verdict is still out however on the effectiveness of the Wi-Fi network in the subways. However, looking at the constructive way in which they have set up this plan, it seems quite encouraging.



    When this network gets underway, you will be able to use your Wi-Fi capable machine to get to your email, social networking page and other applications in places where you could not do so earlier. Probably one of the biggest concerns about this network is the reliability of the signal when the car will be in transit on the roads and through areas where the signal quality is not really good. This plan has been welcomed by a huge section of the technological fraternity.


    There are some issues with regards to connection where the phones automatically reconnect with the new towers when they change locations. However, what happens with the Wi-Fi is that the user will have to reconnect manually. However, Transit Wireless believes that this issue should be solved in the next generation of wireless internet devices which will make it much easier to get Wi-Fi on the streets.

  • Cricket Wireless was founded in 1999 and it is a US based company which has its headquarters in San Diego. It is a subsidiary of Leap Wireless and uses its CDMA 1X and 1xEVDO networks. They recently announced their first Advance Wireless Services in Oklahoma City. Cricket Wireless is set for a number of launches in the near future with August 4th, 2010 being the official date when Cricket Wireless announced their latest device- Blackberry Unlocked Curve (8530). Some of the exclusive features of this new Blackberry model include Blackberry Maps through which users can easily spot their locations and get directions to their destination.


    Its almost as good as Google Maps but users have to give substantial proof of their postal zip codes in order to utilise this application to its fullest. The phone also has a full QWERTY keypad which eases messaging. The new model easily fits into your hand, unlike the earlier Blackberry handsets which were almost the sizes of palmtops. The screen has 320x420 pixel resolution which displays over 65,000 colours! Indeed for a business phone the resolution is something which one doesn’t normally expect. Like in a laptop the trackpad lets one scroll through menus, websites and icons which just a gliding action of your fingers, almost similar to any multimedia touch phone.


    Users also get to feel the Mac experience on the new set. Blackberry Desktop, Software for Mac installed in the phone allows users to sync contacts, notes and events. It also has a 2 mega pixel camera through which u can take photos and videos and upload them on the social sites via email or IM applications. To add on it has WiFi, 3G, microSD expansion, speakerphones and a 2.46” TFT LCD display. The new Blackberry Unlocked phone efficiently combines both multimedia and business phone applications.

  • Now here’s some news for the Facebook addicts. Unlocked Motorola Milestone Android phones have finally got a platform on which users can successfully run all the Facebook applications. The man behind this creation is Eric Tseng. According to him people would avoid Android phones since its functionality was limited. With Facebook application installed the Androids are sure to get an upper hand in the market and the might just tiff off iPhone applications also!


    The new version 1.3 can easily be downloaded from the Internet. Most noticeable thing about the Facebook application when you run it on your Unlocked Sony Ericsson Xperia x10 Android phone is the Homepage. Browsing media files is definitely a lot easier with it.


    Only drawback is that sometimes the resolution is not clear (even on EVO 4G’s screen) and images and videos are not very distinguishable. So the poor image clarity makes it a time taking procedure since the user isn’t sure whether it’s a photo updated by a friend or some random video. There are some additional features also. Like notifications appear in the form of a taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Users can check their notifications by simply clicking on the task bar anytime they want to do so. Keeping the bar in the background users can update their statuses and perform searches.


    Responding to friend requests is also easier. Without opening one’s mobile website, friend requests can be accepted or declined. “Picture Timeline” is a new era altogether. Users can browse through their friend’s photos with the help of this application. One important application, which fails to in the new Facebook application for Androids, is the Facebook chat. Absence of this particular feature makes the application almost at par with Facebook applications available on other Smartphones. Though Android developers promise to eliminate this shortcoming in their next version.

  • We had got initial reports from our trusted sources that the Unlocked BlackBerry Curve 9300 3G will be soon releasing on the Bell networks for the customers. Although these were initial reports, and we did not have any confirmation on them, now we have the official statement from the company’s side that they will actually be coming out with this somewhat minimally updated version of the earlier 8500 series. This phone has been given the code name Kepler and as said earlier does not have much of an upgrade as compared to the earlier version of this line. In fact, it has the exact same camera, the screen and the memory structure along with the platform is the same. In fact the similarity of this device is that much that the 3G on this is almost exact as that of the CDMA 8530 but this one is a GSM phone.  In this light, we see Bell or even Telus’s decision to carry the newly released GSM version of a handset whose close CDMA alternate is already there on their roster. In terms of the platform, the company has said that this phone is actually too close to its release such that the OS 6.0 can be accommodated on this phone.


    In this light, we have heard from our sources that other carriers like Vodafone, Verizon and even T-Mobile are also going to take this phone up also. We cannot say how it will do in the market as it honestly does not have anything new to offer in the market. This phone will soon be available for the Bell customers in Canada also. We however are still completely confused about why one would want to release this phone as it has the same QVGA display, OS 5 and a paltry 256 MB RAM.
