  • iControlPad for the iPhone
    Posted on February 26, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    It looks like the new iControlPad for the iPhone has gone into production.  This will allow everyone to enjoy a their games for the iPhone a bit easier as you will not have to any longer worry about the touchscreen to control your games.  The new controller will be available in two different models.  One will have an internal battery that you will also be a will to charge your phone with and another one that will be less expensive and will not have the battery.  Other than that they will both have the same game controls.  It will have the two analog controllers as well as the typical ABXY buttons and of course the selected start button.  There is no release date yet, and so far, no one is quite sure how much this is going to cost.


    This comes on the heels of the announcement on February 24 that Apple iTunes had its 10 billion songs downloaded.  This is a culmination of seven years worth of songs being downloaded, and the rate that we have seen people using iTunes means that we will probably see the 20th billion download for years from now.  Apple recently acquired Lala, which is an online music streaming company.  This company has enabled users to be able to download a track free for the first time and only charging $.10 per track of their unlimited streams.  This may be a way for Apple to hit that new milestone fairly quickly especially with their iPhone unlocked cell phone users.

    In other iPhone news, iTunes recently removed over 5000 apps that were deemed to be offensive.  This came as a response to the many complaints from women that found much of the content to be very degrading.  This is also are sponsored to the numerous complaints from parents that were not very happy with some of the applications that their children were able to have access to.  There was a rumor that Apple was going to have an explicit content area to be able to satisfy some of the complaints from the developers who are losing thousands of dollars a day.  This seems to be a rumor as no response has been forthcoming from Apple.  Apple does not seem to want to deal with explicit applications and wants to keep their app store much more family-friendly.  They did introduce some parental controls, but it seems as though the number of adult rated apps were far more than what Apple was comfortable having.

  • The "Buzz" is All About A Lawsuit
    Posted on February 22, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    When Google announced their new social network, Buzz, they did not fully take into account how important people think their privacy is.  Two days after it was first launched, Google had to make several revisions to the platform.


    Originally, the application was Google’s answer to Twitter but with some extras.  Buzz was to let you use Google Maps with Buzz in order for you to focus on your actual location and synching it with your Gmail address book.  The application lets you share your location with others and gives additional information about the place you are visiting.  This app syncs with your Google Nexus One unlocked cell phone and your computer.  This would let your followers know where you are and what you are doing.


    Unfortunately when it was released, it allowed everyone to see your public profile.  As a user, you had to block the public from viewing your information.  On February 12, 2010, Google made some changes so you could block anyone following you that you did not want following you.  They based these changes on the amount of user feedback stating that this was an invasion of privacy.  Google enhanced Buzz with features to improve privacy settings and giving the user more control about how information would be shared.

    This must not be enough for some users as a lawsuit was filed this week in San Jose (CA).  The class action was filed in federal court and states that Google has invaded privacy issues by how it released Buzz.  Most times, applications state that you must opt in, while Buzz made it so that you had to opt out.  This made over 31 million users of Gmail affected by the way Buzz was introduced.  The suit could actually include every Gmail user.  Google has not made any official statement, as they have not yet taken a look at the lawsuit.  You would have thought that Google would have taken into consideration these kinds of privacy issues prior to the release.  Make sure that your public profile is excluded before you use Buzz on your mobile unlocked cell phone like the Google Nexus One.

  • Benefits of an Unlocked Cell Phone
    Posted on February 19, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    It is very surprising to realize that most people in the United States do not know or understand what an unlocked cell phone is.  I was having dinner with my family this past week, and of course the discussion turned towards cell phones and cell phone plans.  I was explaining that there were numerous benefits to purchasing an unlocked cell phone.


    My sister-in-law had just purchased the new Samsung 1637 Jack unlocked and of course now she is locked into another three-year contract with her current carrier.  I asked her why she did this, as she has never really cared much for her current plan.  She bought a phone and extended her plan because she figured that it was her only option to getting a new cell phone.

    I explained to her that by purchasing an unlocked cell phone, it would give her the freedom and flexibility in choosing a carrier.  I explained that she may have even been able to save some extra money as the cost of the phone would not be buried in the plan.  I also explained that since she does travel outside the country several times a year, that an unlocked cell phone would give her the freedom to purchase local Sim cards, so she would not occur any additional charges from her carrier.


    When I started to explain that there are many phones we do not even have access to here in the United States, and some of the amazing features of the phones, I began to get the attention of some of my younger nieces and nephews.  I explained to them that they would be able to get some of the newest technology that is only available in the European markets by purchasing an unlocked cell phone like the Sony Ericsson Aspen unlocked.


    I think they will all start to consider purchasing an unlocked cell phone the next time their current contract from their carrier is about to end.  When I explained to them some of the amazing phones and all the features that they have, which we are not yet able to get here, they all pulled out their existing phones and began to enter the website information for Pure Mobile to purchase their unlocked cell phone.

  • The New LG Mini
    Posted on February 15, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    LG has announced its new cellular phone, the LG GD880, also known as the LG Mini.  The cellular phone is perhaps one of the slimmest and tiniest touchscreen smart phones that you will be able to find.  Do not let its size fool you though, as it is loaded with many features.


    This  LG cell phone is based on information it has gathered from actual users that are not pleased with the high priced and bulky phones that are around right now.  This phone is easy to keep in your pocket and comes with a great price.  It has that sleek and slim look as well.

    It has textured metal trim that gives it that touch of elegance.  It has a 3.2 inch screen that goes to the edge of the phone.  The phone has fast web browsing and will keep you synched with all of your social sites like Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.  It also comes with a 5 megapixel camera.  It uses the HSDPA connection at 7.2 Mbps and has Wi-Fi.


    It will also have the microUSB and will use the 2.1 Stereo Bluetooth.  It also has the video playback, MP3 player and FM radio.  The LG Mini has a microSD memory slot and has 100 MB of internal memory.  It uses the A-GPS real time locator as well.  It has all of those useful accessories like the alarm, calendar, to do lists, calculator and tasks.  You can voice record and it has a speaker phone.


    We should begin to see this cellular phone be released sometime in March.  It will probably be released in the European market first.  Good news for the North American market though, you should be able to purchase the mini LG cell phone unlocked soon after its release.  It is promised to be an affordable phone; at least this is what LG is saying.  We will have to wait until March to find out.

  • This past week, RealVNC released the VNC Viewer.  This application for the iPhone 3Gs unlocked will give users the ability to access and even control their PC or laptop computers.   You can do this from just about anywhere.  It is downloaded at the Apple App store and it will run applications, access documents with any Mac, Windows, Linux or UNIX computer.


    The Apple iPhone have just become mobile troubleshooters.  Just imagine that you can test, install, uninstall programs, and check desktops or servers and other issues.  This will be terrific for those system managers.  They will no longer have to run to the office to fix a problem.



    People using this application on their iPhone will need to make sure that they are using VNC Enterprise Edition on their personal computer or laptop in order to be able to access it.  Since it has very intense security features, you will not have to worry about that particular issue.  Using your mobile device, you will be able to use touch, tap and drag to access features of the computer.  It also has the mouse mode if you are more comfortable with this method.  You will be able to scroll left, right, up and down as well as be able to scroll, all from your touchscreen.  You simple enter text right from your touch screen or slid out keyboard.  There are also buttons for shift, Ctrl, Alt and delete, just like your PC or laptop keyboard.


    This really makes the iPhone a mobile office.  To be able to remotely access all of the information on your computer will enable you to be much more productive.  With a $10 price tag, this makes it one of the best applications as of yet.  How many times have you wished you had a document with you at home?  Now you will be able to remotely access it with a touch of a button.

  • Touchscreen Sales Continue to Rise
    Posted on February 11, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    There are some very interesting numbers coming in from Canalys that shows us some info about the sales of touch screen smart phones. This reports shows that over 50% of the smartphones sold around the world have touchscreen features. It is no real surprise that Apple iPhone 3GS unlocked remains the leader, even though they really only have two mobile units. But what is interesting is that Nokia is not that far behind them. This is most certainly putting some pressure on Apple to keep on top of their game. The other companies such as HTC and Samsung still have quite a ways to go to catch up. This should indicate that we will see more touchscreen updates and releases this year. We should also see Samsung increase its market share since they did much better in 2009. The big news is looking at Nokia N900 cell phone and their percentage of increase over their shipments of 2008. We can expect Nokia to make a major presence in the market in the coming months. Does this mean that they will over take Apple? It is hard to say, but 2010 should be a very interesting year for all of the companies.



    When we take a look at the OS systems for the smartphones, Symbian is still in the lead, but they did not experience much growth. Apple and Google could both be real contenders on overthrowing Symbian over the next few years. The amazing success of Google Android OS could see them overtaking Microsoft very soon. It must be discouraging for Microsoft to see their market share go done. Hopefully some of their new releases will be exciting enough for them to stay in the game.


    It will be interesting to take a look at some of these numbers at the end of this year. We may see some upsets and some very surprising statistics. At the very least, the number of touchscreen phones should go well over 60% of the number of mobile devices sold. This will surely be a great year for the mobile phone industry.

Preloaded with Microsoft Office Mobil, Outlook, and a PDF reader the quick touch display easily enters memos, and emails with speed and accuracy. The pan and flick coupled with a drop and drag icon application is the first of its kind to utilize a finger friendly multitouch platform.


    An Internet Explorer page load with IE memory management offers many office functions as well as social networking. The phone is preloaded with Windows Live Messenger, Facebook, twitter, CNN, YouTube, and Skype, now that is a powerful punch. The 3.2 megapixel camera takes sharp photos you can email or send to your computer. A 3.5mm audio jack with WiFi and microSD expansion will be sure to please your listening needs. The Aspen’s full sized screen will provide you with GPS through Google Maps to your destination.


    At a time when any attempts to go green is appreciated by many, this phone also offers a style and beauty all its own. Black, silver, and white are the colors the Aspen phone is available in.
