  • The new Unlocked Motorola Droid ( X ) which has come out on Verizon is a great piece of work and has excellent software and hardware which has meant that this is pretty much worth the $200 or so amount that you will be shelling out for it. However there is one thing which has proved this phone to be somewhat of an annoyance for developers. The reason for this is that the phone comes with a bootloader which has been locked down. Other than this, there is also the small matter of a new tool known as the eFuse which checks on the version of the ROM, bootloader and the kernel and if any of them do not match then the machine shuts down and will not come back by itself. One has to send it to the Verizon store, which then can send it to Motorola who will then restart it. This is unlike the more user friendly Droid which had an unlocked bootloader.



    This application makes it such that one cannot install any kind of non Motorola ROM such that there is no illegal software which is being used here. While we agree that the developers might want to safeguard their products, but honestly there is no such need to lock the device down to such an extent.  Customers argue that due to the amount of money that they pay for the device, they should be allowed a free reign to do whatever they want. However we feel that the normal customers would not try to put forward a custom ROM.


    Motorola, however, do want to keep their backflip unlocked Android phone which can be changed and customized still in the market and you can actually use the custom ROMs which are given on the device.

  • Although the Unlocked  Samsung S Galaxy has released and we have seen it a number of times, the Vibrant has just been released on the T-Mobile. It has been released just a short time back and will be out on the Android platform. The design of this phone will be as the standard Samsung Galaxy S model. The Vibrant will have a small bump on the back and carry the Android four key lay out rather than the standard three key set up. The Vibrant is one of the most loaded phones in terms of features and the apps that it will be carrying.



    This Android Device has been dubbed as the closest to phone with the features which are the closest to the performance of the iPhone 4 Unlocked gadget  in terms of the output features. The features on this phone which really makes it stand out, is the neat Hummingbird processor and the brilliant super AMOLED display which is the closest that one can get to the Retina Display that the iPhone 4 has. In fact, if initial responses are to be considered, this display is one of the most striking features of this phone. We were also very impressed with the sunlight testing that we did ourselves. The Hummingbird processor is well complimented by the Samsung TouchWiz UI which is a much more advanced form of the software that was provided on the Samsung Behold 2. The Samsung Vibrant is probably the best phones from the Android line in recent times.


    Although the process speed is pretty fast and good on this phone, there is still something missing. The durable feel is still lacking on this phone as was the case with many of the other releases by Samsung. However, this is hardly a deterrent as the phones which were released were not the production models, one only hopes that Samsung cleans up the probable flaws in this otherwise great phone.

  • No Silent Mode on Android!!
    Posted on July 13, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    The Flash technology has recently been integrated in Android devices. But it has been discovered that that the Flash 10.1 player on Android will play the sound, regardless of what mode the phone is on!



    Watching a Flash-enabled video on the Android device will have the sound playing even if you put it on silent mode. It is always advisable to use your headphones or earphones if you are with people. Otherwise, you will wake everybody up, and face the consequences. It is quite a problem for Adobe, to have blatantly overlooked this small fact. But then again, the Flash player 10.1 for Google’s Unlocked Nexus one Android is still a Beta version, and so, Adobe can be forgiven for this tiny mistake.


    A much hassled user said that most of us are dependant upon on silent mode on all our devices to help the babies to stay asleep. He complains about obvious problems regarding the lack of silent mode which has caused severe disturbance in a number of ways.



    Although this e-mail does not quite resemble a proper complaint, it can be assumed that the guys at Adobe are listening at this point. The silent issue will be fixed in a jiffy, hopefully. It could be done so in the form of a patch which is pretty easy to install, or be taken care of in a beta version of the player.


    Adobe has to work really hard to establish the fact that Flash on unlocked cell  phones is the way to go now, and in order to do this, Adobe must not overlook these mistakes in the future. Adobe is the leading company when it comes to developing newer technologies for the internet. Its flash technology is one of the best to have ever hit the mobile industry and so it is vital they take whatever precautions are necessary.

  • An analyst has come to the conclusion that T-Mobile’s Garminfone has not been doing well at all due to its low sales. This could be because the people don’t want to have to do anything with a device which is a more or less limited GPS-oriented handset, even though the device runs Android.



    The Garminfone is average, with a capacitive 3.5-inch touch screen, a camera of 3 megapixels, 3G, Wi-Fi and a microSD slot. Though these features are not enough to win over customers, and it does not help at all, when you come to know that the Garminfone has no flash with its camera. The only thing Garmin was banking heavily on, was its turn-by-turn navigation and maps, which could have made the appeal to people to ditch their personal navigation devices.


    Morgan Keegan analyst Yair Reiner, surveyed close to 50 stores of T-Mobile, and the figures he came across were not in the least satisfactory. It is true that there have been no official announcements regarding Garmin sales, but Reiner’s conclusions can be deemed like a brick. Many sales associates spoke highly of it and claimed that it had the best navigation functionality of any cell phone even before it was released. But days after the release, it has not generated interest from the stores, which hampered sales and others had not sold any despite displays being setup and several sold a few. The sales have been extremely low.


    There are many causes attributed to the woefully low sales of the Garminfone; as the Android 2.2, with a free turn-by-turn navigation with the Google Navigation systems, has a major role to play in this. The best way for Garmin to perk up sales is to come up with some killer hardware designs. There are many devices which provide GPS services, the same as the Garmin, and the Garmin needs to come up with something that will give it an edge over the others.

  • Android’s new baby, the 2.2 or what is more popularly known as the ‘Froyo’ is all set for its release on the Unlocked HTC (Desire), Legend and the Wildfire. So for the customers who are going to be buying either one of these phones there is a treat which is waiting for them.



    With a much more enhance performance specification, the ‘Froyo’ will give the users a really smooth experience of using their phone. This has in fact been confirmed by HTC. In an official statement which was released by them, company representatives have said, “We want all our customers to have an unbelievable HTC Sense experience on Froyo and are now trying to do what we can to get this update available to users as fast as possible. A variety of models such as the Desire, Legend and Wildfire will soon be getting these updates in the third quarter of the year.”


    Rest assured that if you are not picking these mobile phones from the store and want to go for a Droid or a Google’s  Unlocked Nexus One or even the EVO 4G then you will soon get them with the


    Android 2.2 OS, which in is fact already available on the Nexus One unlocked mobile phone.

  • E-mails have been sent out by Unlocked Palm Pre to the webOS developer community intimating them of Palm's intention of a waiver for the $50 per application submission fee that is required to get on the apps catalog. Moreover, Palm has also said that all current developers are eligible for a refund of their fees submitted previously.



    After its takeover, LogicHP considers Palm and webOS to be “A great source of mobile fun, its not all sunshine and rainbows”. The number of apps in the webOS store has leveled out at around 2,600 for quite a while. The rather stiff $50 submission fee was also a substantial deterrent to coders who might have been interested in developing apps for the PalmOS platform.


    By following the present policy, Palm would have to pay over $100,000. This is not really that hefty a sum, considering its acquisition by HP. Moreover, in a market dominated by the likes of the iPhone 4 unlocked Handset  and  Android operating systems for mobile phones, this may seem like a sensible investment to boost the interest of developers and coders thus giving a shot in the arm to application development for the PalmOS platform. And the App Catalog could definitely use the extra apps that may be coming due to developers homing in on this "too-good-to-be-true" opportunity.



    This is a rather unusual move to entice developers by Palm. Earlier they had waived the submission fee and reviewing process for open-source apps. The present move may also be a desperate attempt to increase sales of its smartphones - the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus.


    There are several disadvantages to this as well. This literal opening of doors may result in spam, bug-prone apps, loss in robustness integrity of code due to an unrestricted submission policy and a lack of quality control.

  • The T-Mobile company which has launched the Unlocked  Blackberry Curve ( 9300 ) which is better known as the Blackberry Curve has now been spotted in a new metallic purple color which appears much better on the surface from the earlier metal finish mobile phone body which it had earlier.




    The Blackberry curve adds to its popularity as it is really easy to use. In fact it is one of the easiest to use Blackberries which are in the market. This new color which we have seen along with its user friendly working makes this one a good buy. Although for one who may be looking for complex functionalities, they will be a tad bit disappointed. The photographs that we have received are of a purple ‘Kepler’ which is fresh out of the packaging.




    The memory for this mobile is supposed to be 256 MB. However from what we gather, it will not be carrying more than 128 MB which is somewhat disappointing. However you can install a SD card which you can use for your apps and music and videos that you might want to keep on your phone. There is provision for the platform for OS 6 as has been promoted before its release, but the version we have received contains OS 5. If you are looking for further features on this phone then you will be provided with 624 MHz processor and a 3.2 mega pixel camera. Furthermore there is of course the feature of Wi-Fi b/g/n which this phone is supposed to carry.



    This mobile phone is basically an upgraded version of the previously released Blackberry unlocked ( 8500 ) however with the OS 6 it will be a better draw. This smart phone is also available in a series of other colors which offer great combination which are suited for all purposes, be it business or the young buyer.

  • Unlocked HTC ( EVO 4G ) can soon be available for you at an amazing price of $149.99. The company does provide an initial $100 Best Buy rebate which makes this phone available to you for a price of $199. However it has come to our attention that Sprint is secretly offering the customers who are willing to deal with a mail-in discount. This gives the buyer a rebate of $50. Therefore, one can get this phone at an amazingly low rate of $149.99.




    In terms of features, this phone is definitely well loaded. It boasts of


    • 4.3 inch touch screen
    • A really nice 8 GB camera with dual LED flash
    • 1 GHz Snapdragon processor
    • Wi-Fi, 4G connectivity and the novelty of a kickstand for watching movies on the mobile phone.
    • Plus it works on the Android 2.1 OS like Google Unlocked  Nexus One and has the HTC Sense UI skin.


    However availing of this discount, does require some amount of maneuvering on the part of the customer. Once you can get this discount, the hottest Sprint mobile phone could be yours.



    Follow these steps to get the discount that you are looking for-


    • Apply for the phone by using the option which says “buy with new plan”. By this, you can get yourselves on their logs
    • Then you cancel your order. What will happen is that Sprint will mail you, offering you an additional $50 discount hoping that you change your mind. This additional $50 discount is compounded upon the mail in discount of $100.


    Do not fear, this is completely genuine as Sprint is offering the rebate which makes this phone available at this incredible price. This is really cool and we here really like this as it definitely will swing a lot of consumers who would otherwise not have gone for the HTC EVO 4G.

    If you thought that queuing up for iPhone 4 is a madman’s task well you just haven’t yet got the hang of the frenzy surrounding the big launch. Here in the San Francisco main Apple store are gathered an assortment of gizmo lovers and techno fanatics to make a grab at the latest ‘big step’ in the unlocked mobile world. Meet Chris Bank. He has been right here, right at the head of the line since Monday to be the first person to buy the iPhone 4.



    Bank said that he has been a faithful believer in the BlackBerry products but the amazing display, multitasking and design was enough to sway him out of the road. He strongly suggested that moving into the Apple products was a huge development for him and he is a firm believer. He chose this particular store as this was one of the very few which boasted its availability for even those who did not order it before hand.


    Now to get down to the more excruciating yet vital details of Chris Bank’s camp in this Apple store. When hard-hitting questions were flung at him he answered that he uses the bathroom inside the store all day whenever required and holds it until the store re-opens in the morning. A few power bars, coffee with chocolate mix and a few other regular sustenance objects keeps him through. Chris Bank as it turns out is an independent tech consultant and with his MacBook to power him through has resorted to carry out his works with its help.


    As expected, the limited number of iPhone 4 in the market is definitely going to make it big on eBay. Quite unsurprisingly Bank, who will be the first to buy the unlocked iPhone 4, will sell it to the highest bidder and the stakes are as high as $300!

  • By now you already probably know that on 24th June the newest Apple’s Unlocked iPhone 4 will be released to the public for purchase. You might also know that preorder sales have gone through the roof as confirmed by AT&T. but what you might not know is that the latest version of the operating system for the iPhone, the iOS 4 has also been released for users having the iPhone 3G or 3GS. If you are one such user who has an earlier of the iPhone and would like to update to the latest operating system, you can expect a variety of applications as there are more than 100 new features and key modules for you to choose from. Some of the key features that you can use, should you decide to upgrade include iBooks, multitasking, playlist creation, enhanced mail as well as better wallpapers for you home screen.



    By making sure that you upgrade your iPhone 3G or Unlocked Iphone 3GS to the latest iOS 4, you will be on par with most of the features being made available for users of the iPhone 4.  One of the best things you can look forward to with the iOS 4 is the ability of multitasking with different applications. In fact, Apple has confirmed that such multitasking would in no way shorten the battery life of the phone. Such multitasking was demonstrated by Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, as he managed to use Pandora for navigation in the background, while at the same time running a variety of applications in the foreground. In total, the iOS 4 would be capable of managing 2160 applications.


    With the new operating system, users can expect a similar drag and dropfunctionality for folders and other files.  Another major overhaul in the iOS 4 that you can experience in the 3G and 3GS is with respect to email as you will now be able to have a single integrated account that can store email inbox messages from all your accounts.
