  • The Motorola Unlocked  Droid (X) has been well received by the customers and indeed it has a lot of plus sides to it as compared to the draw backs. Probably the biggest plus of this phone is that it does not come with a very heavy custom UI which means that the updates for the Android will reach this phone much faster than other phones which have the infamous Sense UI which does get pretty heavy and entails that the Android 2.2 updates will be reaching these devices much later than the others. This according to us is pretty much what the case is as there have been cases where the owner of any HTC Sense enabled phone is not getting this update while a plain Android Nexus One has the Froyo. The EVO 4G however is probably the only phone on the Sense UI slated to get the Froyo. In this light, we have received news from sources that the Motorola Droid users will not have to bear the agony as it is to get the Android 2.2 as early as next week.


    This will mean that the Droid can be used to experience the best of the Froyo features on the keyboard included handset. One of the most important features of the Froyo is the capability to support Flash 10.1 which means that there will be improved Java Script feature which entails that browsing the internet on your phone will be better than ever before. The microSD storage for apps gives the user pretty good flexibility to manage the memory on your phone. The update will mean that the phone can be totally revamped and one will feel as if they are getting a totally new device altogether. We will keep a track on when this will be pushed into the market especially by the service providers like Verizon.

  • It has been finally announced that Nokia Siemens has indeed purchased Motorola’s network equipment division. $1.2 billion is not bad considering the fact that they will now be in quite a good position in North America to steadily grow in the market. The purchase will raise a few eyebrows as it really puts them in a really strong position.


    New York Times ran a story saying that this purchase was not a sudden decision but the conclusion of a long drawn out effort to compete against the likes of Unlocked  Ericsson phone and Huawei of China. They have been repeatedly thwarted in their effort to be able to claim a position such as this and finally they have succeeded by buying the Motorola network equipment division.


    The acquisition might prove to be a very valuable one as it gives Nokia Siemens a stronghold in the market of North America. It had failed on two auctions in the past and this acquisition ends that drought. Although, the two companies who had beaten Nokia Siemens in the past are having to pay more annual revenue than Nokia Siemens has to pay for the Motorola business. Nokia Siemens has really met tough competitors in North America but this move will hopefully be crucial for them. A separate venture might be just the perfect choice for Nokia Siemens after this purchase. The competitive market in North America is really not the place for the way to do business which is conducive to Nokia Siemens. So, a split would be advisable after they have purchased the Motorola division.



    This purchase may catapult them to new heights but they have to be cautious in the way they approach this move. They can have steady influence in the market but it has to be well planned out. Only time will tell how influential would this purchase be.

  • It looks like it is going to be Verizon’s year considering the number of quality products it has lined up for release this year. Motorola Unlocked Droid (2), Blackberry Storm 3, Blackberry Curve 3 and 10.1-inch tablet are all set to be released by the end of this year which means that there is going to be a huge buzz surrounding Verizon this year.


    The rumors have already started with the surfacing of a few Droid 2 images. This comes fresh after rumors were doing the rounds about Droid 2 releasing along with a two blackberry devices. The images have served up the rumors to be pushed to the fact that the Droid 2 is supposed to have 5 MP camera fitted together with a 1 GHz processor. It is also believed that it will have a QWERTY keyboard and Android option. The images have all the more confirmed the fact that the Droid 2 will be launched soon, maybe even as early as August.


    A couple of Blackberry phones are also likely to be launched soon. There is talk of Blackberry Storm 3 and Unlocked Blackberry (Curve 3) being the ones. The Blackberry Storm 3 is supposed to have SurePress and will run on LTE. The Blackberry phones will have other new features which have not been clearly understood. The Blackberry Storm 3 may have OS 6, but details on this matter are not available.



    The 10.1-inch tablet can be more or less confirmed to be a rumor and there is a maximum possibility of a 7.9 or 8-inch tablet. Even that is releasing next year.


    Even if the tablet does not release this year, Verizon may be on the verge of a highly successful year with a series of much-hyped products ready for launch. It is only a matter of time before we know more about these fascinating devices.

  • Verizon Kills the Kin
    Posted on July 28, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    We had got some reports from our sources that the nation’s biggest cell phone carrier will be doing away with the Microsoft Kin and this fear was confirmed as the company has later confirmed that they will indeed be doing this and pretty soon. In a recent statement which was given by the company in this relation said that they will indeed no longer be selling the Kin in both ‘One’ and ‘Two’ variants in their own flagship stores. The customers who are already using this phone will however be not affected with the reversal. The company has announced that all kinds of customer care facilities will be available for this phone. One good thing with this pull back is that the company did not have many customers of this phone as it is.



    Indeed both these phones are really not the top of the line social networking devices and we will really not be missing it that much. The Kin One was a rather oddly shaped machine and the other variant the Kin Two had a slider QWERTY key pad. The phones were okay but nothing really great. The cell phones themselves had a custom edition of the Windows mobile platform. So they seem to be more or less okay mobile phones but what did go wrong than within a few months this device has to be shelved? The major reason was the shortcomings of the Windows phone which does not allow the users to download new applications on the device. We found this to be really one of the major downsides of this phone. What followed was some gross mismanagement on the part of Microsoft and some miscommunication from Verizon meant that they did not enter into an agreement over the data plan and Verizon wanted to take up the smartphone spectrum instead.

  • In spite of all the problems and the controversy associated with it, the Unlocked  iPhone 4 has managed to sell as much as 3 million units already just about under a month from its release. Selling at around one million units per week, this handset is sold out in almost all places. However the problems have been plaguing the company pretty badly. CEO Steve Jobs decided to directly address this issue in a press event where he acknowledged the issue but at the same time doled out certain figures which were aimed at proving that the iPhone 4 was selling marvelously irrespective of the problems that they were facing.


    Apple has said that the iPhone has hit the level of three million customers and they have also gone to the extent of saying that this is the foremost gadget they have ever made. If that was not enough, they have also said that this is the top ranked smartphone in the market. Well, from the reports that we have got, this is pretty different as consumer reports have slowly been pulling their recommendations off and the reports are not very encouraging. Apple had come up with a slew of software upgrades for the iPhone 4 unlocked handset  which they said would help the phones which would lose its reception when one would hold the phone in a certain way. There has also been some research done on the part of some private agencies and what they found was pretty bad for the iPhone. It has been found that one would need to either place tape on their palms or at least get bumper cases for their phones to be able to operate it.


    Judging by the amount of money that one pays for this phone, it is expected that they will get the best performance. For its defense, the phone is pretty well loaded with features and we hope they can turn it around.

  • As time goes our demands from mobile internet is increasing and we want to get the much dreamed about levels of 500 MHz for mobile broadband. However this is still a distant dream as it will take around 10 years to achieve this. However the short term gains that we are getting are pretty good either ways. FCC has set a target to reach the level of 300 MHz within the next three years and is working towards just that. Some time back in the previous month, FCC had expressed their intentions of grabbing the 90 MHz spectrum of the Big Leo and had caused many discussions about what would happen to the 35 MHz band which was there.



    The most exciting thing about this is that all these large bandwidths that we are talking about are exclusively for mobile broadband internet. The news we mentioned above is old, however more recently FCC has shown their interests in working with MSS which is also known as Mobile Satellite  and get the 90 MHz service bands which have the 2 GHz bad and the L-band along with the Big Leo of course. What all this means in a nut shell is that the mobile broadband industry will be expanding at a higher rate now as every small addition assists in acting as a filler for the 500 MHz width that is set aside.


    Other than this, we have also received news that Clearwire has been given an extension for its primary trading zones to be completed in Florida. As per the reports that we have got, Clearwater had been asked to exchange some of the 2.5 GHz licenses in the Boca Raton Areas of West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale in Miami. This was supposed to happen much before but did not due to the high amount of licenses needed in the areas above.

  • The major news in the software market is that Microsoft Bing will soon be incorporated into Android. This is expected to be accomplished within the next six weeks and is indeed a big talking point.


    The software is not a new one and is already found in Apple’s Unlocked iPhone 4. It is particularly useful when it comes to browsing through web, and locating places using the mapping of the software. It has quite a few interesting features. Microsoft Bing is already partially present in Android but the version being talked about here is a much advanced version which has possibilities of image search as well.


    What remains a point of interest is that by joining in with Android, they are making a move to remove their biggest rival in this particular market, Google. Google is well known for its capabilities as a search engine and most people use Google habitually. It is indeed quite impossible to topple Google of this stronghold no matter how useful Microsoft Bing may be. Hence, Microsoft Bing combining with Motorola Milestone Unlocked Android handset  has raised several eyebrows.


    Microsoft Bing, nevertheless, will try and give competition to Google and maybe if they are made into default application in mobile web browsing, they might actually benefit from this. Mobile searching is actually a forum where Bing can actually be a force to reckon with. Google will obviously realize the threat and improve a few things to counter this move by Bing and they have adequate support and ability to keep Bing away.


    In this battle for supremacy, both parties are working on improving themselves in various ways like Microsoft upgrading their search services to include Image recognition facility and there has always been a tendency to move towards addition of social networking. All this builds up for a fascinating rivalry.

  • Well if you are looking to get into the Android market for smartphones this summer, then you are up for some hard competition as two major mobile phones which are coming into the market. Both these phones are set to be Android OS super smart phones and have specs which are to die for. The smartphones that we are talking about here are the Unlocked Motorola Droid (X) from Verizon and the HTC EVO 4G which will be carried by Sprint. As we said, both these phones have great common features of the nature of a 1 GHz processor and HDMI output along with 8 megapixel camera which are just some of the basic specs that we are talking about. Let’s look at the features of these two phones more in depth.


    In terms of the operations, both are pretty equally matched and have full HD output in 720p onto any kind of monitor. There are however some differences in the features of these phones which are pretty noteworthy. In terms of the home keys and the sheer size, the Droid X is a bigger phone. Although thinner, this phone is taller than its competitor. Furthermore, the EVO uses touch sensitive home keys which are in stark contrast to the rather flimsy buttons on the Droid X’s interface. Furthermore both phones have a cushioned touch but EVO feels rather spongy. Both the phones have the Android 2.1 OS but they have much contrasting UI. The Droid X on the Verizon features the new Motorola Unlocked ( MotoBlur) UI while the EVO has the very popular Sense UI. There are certain apps which work differently on both the phones.


    Other than this, the dialer on the EVO 4G is more user friendly as compared to the Droid which does not offer the contact guessing feature.

  • Qt Developer Network Launched
    Posted on July 21, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    Qt has quietly launched the Qt Developer Network in Beta and offers the usual content such as blogs, wiki, forums and Fads that are available in any standard site for developers. But reading the blogs available in the site, you get to learn that in the near future they have plans of including Ovi account integration, groups, eLearning content, a books section and videos on your phone. All this is said to be done with the clear intention of bringing more developers on board.


    Nokia, the owner of Qt has taken a different route with this approach because clearly it was earlier thought to be unlikely of the electronics mogul to create a separate site for its developers, one which is not part of the Nokia Forum although it still remains to be on Nokia’s domain. Now there might be an answer as to why Nokia decided to make the site go solo. Although nothing can be said with surety, Nokia has some strategies one of which is the “attract developers” strategy which is all very complex but might be where the answer to the above question lies. The two platforms that Qt supports namely the Symbian and MeeGo has other licensees such as Sony Ericsson Unlocked handsets, but these users linking articles on a site that has brand Nokia all over it like the Forum Nokia, is unthinkable. This is the closest that one can guess to be the reason behind Nokia’s innovative decision.


    Since the Qt supports and works on two platforms-the Symbian and the MeeGo and also works on smartphones running other operating systems along with this, Nokia has high expectations surrounding this venture and sources from inside the company also says that they expect to dominate developer site market with this venture. But that again is a different story and only the future will tell what is in store for them.

  • One cannot really hate the promotional work that T-Mobile does and we too are also becoming fans of this network. Recently the company had launched a new plan where they offered the entire line of cell phones for free. Now the company has come with a new deal where you can get the Unlocked Motorola ( Charm ) which comes with the Android OS for free by signing with them on the family plan. Even if you are not a part of any family, you can get this phone via the back to school offer that the company will be giving.



    On the downside, the Charm phone is not really very high on specs phone and one should not really look for getting much out of it. While there are not many great features, you will get the minimum out of this phone which itself is said to be a messaging phone. However, we feel that if T-Mobile does not cash in on this phone soon enough then they might lose out on some revenues that they might have gotten.


    In terms of pricing, again this unlocked phone is offered for free against the customary two year contract that one has to sign with the service provider. The price of a phone like the Charm can easily range up to around $100 and since you are getting this phone for as much as $0 then you can definitely have no qualms about paying extra for the contract you would have to sign.


    We strongly believe that T-Mobile should really consider making this plan a permanent one as this may just keep the flow of the customers coming into their bandwagon. The phone is nothing much to write home about but we do recommend it just because of the plan that the good people at T-Mobile are offering us.
