  • 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.

  • Liquidmetal Technologies recently signed with software giant Apple, a licensing deal, worth $11 million. This would allow the California based Liquidmetal Technologies to clear out what was an estimated $11 million worth of debts.


    The transactions were recently revealed through Liquidmetal’s 8-K periodical filing of accounts to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. It is unclear what Apple's plans with its newly acquired rights to Liquidmetal’s patents and nothing to this effect has been stated officially , but if speculation is to be believed then the word in the market is that Apple intends to apply any new developments to redesign and develop the structure for its new unlocked  iPhone4,  iPad and iPod. Thus it wouldn’t be too surprising if Apple now shells out a slimmer and more compact designs for all its products which should eradicate a rather common complaint related to its iPad that the tablet is built too heavily. Apple may even consider using the patented alloy technology from Liquidmetal to upgrade its Mac construction as well however there is nothing to suggest that it may be a practical move from Apple to do so considering that there are hardly any complaints about the Mac construction. Although a complete and radical revamp of the Mac products cannot be ruled out in which case the electronics market will be set abuzz soon.



    Coming back to the deal itself, the deal still affords the alloy company the freedom to license the products it comes up with to any customers it wishes to for any use related to non consumer electrical use or electronics. The deal seems to have been a rather advantageous one for Apple and opens up a wide range of possibilities when it comes to designs for its products but in all practicality its Liquidmetal Technologies that has 11 million reasons to smile away to the bank!

  • 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%.

  • Chaos Rings, the swashbuckling RPG from Square Enix, made its debut on Apple’s unlocked iPhones4 close to 4 months back. The game was subjected to a tremendous amount of critical acclaim from various outlets. Soon enough Chaos Rings managed to secure a No.1 positioning on the basis of sales in a total 15 countries all over the world. After taking the phone gaming world by storm, this immensely popular creation is now here to conquer the iPad. The game was recently launched for the iPad platform and is receiving critical acclaim aplenty.


    One close look at the iPad version of Chaos Rings reveals that nothing much has changed from the iPhone version that is of course, except for  the inculcation of HD graphics which was expected considering that the iPad has a much bigger screen. The game runs at a resolution of 1024×768.  Remember this game looked magnificent from a graphics point of view on the iPhone itself, upping the graphics on top of it can only add to the “wow factor” that won so much acclaim from all corners of the gaming world.


    Would a new release from Square-Enix game be complete without a subsequent or simultaneous drop in prices for the remaining titles available through the App Store? When Chaos Rings for the iPhone was unleashed a few months ago, we saw a similar change in pricing for the other games from Square-Enix and it seems Square-Enix is bent on keeping the traditional price drop move alive. So if you want a Square-Enix release for cheap, just keep low till their next release and you’ll end up saving a few bucks at least. After all Square-Enix releases don’t come cheap at all. However Chaos Rings is one game we would recommend you don’t wait for a price cut in. Yes, ladies and gentlemen the game is THAT good!

  • No one was surprised in the fact that the Android device from Garminfone has not really hit on T-Mobile hugely, or nor for any other carriers, as it is said by Garmin that the cell phone division of them has not also performed as per as their hopes expectations.



    The second quarter earnings of the company have given the following statement:


    Sales of their smartphone product of contributed category of $27M revenued in while the quarter is going on. The time When all these were below their plan, they had been working with utter aggression with T-Mobile as well as other around the world carriers on their appropriate positioning as well as pricing of their devices in random competitive space of smartphone.



    It did not surprise anybody terribly that the world is not set on fire by the Garminfone because several key features are missed by the device such as a jack of headphone! Even Android of modern version is also missing. Although to be fair enough, on-board maps are packed by it, so, quite unlike the Google Navigation, there is nothing to be worried about holding a continuous connection of Data for directions.


    One solid quarter was posted by Garmin overall but unfortunately we cannot see a well bode future until and unless it can really up its games with the smartphones. The market of the device of personal navigation device is eventually likely to be dwindled as many more people now carry smartphone and that too with similar kind of navigation capabilities. It is quite sure that the phone sets are not quite that good as those dedicated devices; still it has got more convenience as well as enough good features for most of the cases.


    Garmin to all its credits understands this well and it is making a team with Asus for producing Android phones.

  • MyTown, a location based check-in game from Booyah will now be made available in iTunes stores of countries like Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and so on. This is good news for a whole bunch of people, who had actually been waiting for this for quite some time now. It is not too much different from the location based check-ins from familiar elements such as Foursquare and Gowalla. Here, only a thick slather of game elements is added on top of the usual familiar material. The basic thing is altered just a little. Before, you had to go and check into a store to get your points. Here, it has almost been turned into the game of Monopoly, which allows you to ‘own’ the business that you decide to check into, and in its turn, charges rent from the other people who might be checking into that business. Another difference is that it puts out a list of the stores, according to specifications. The others, in this case tend to be friendlier towards the users with a huge variety of content.


    A ‘scavenger hunt’ was also launched by Booyah today. What you have to do is check into locations, as many times as you require, and in your turn will be able to discover parts of a map, holding the clues to a ‘key’ that has been hidden somewhere in the city. Once you get to this key, you will be given a code, that you will need to mail to Booyah. This will enter you into a contest and you stand to win iTunes gift cards, and if you are really lucky, even an unlocked  iPhone4. However, the contest is only for the American users and the new regions will just have to wait out their turn to get lucky.

  • Cell phone technology is of a lot of great help in a lot of sectors or fields of life, one of the most important being in the health sector. And here is another important reason on how cell phone technology is of service to the health.



    Jennifer Dyer, working as an endocrinologist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital is the city of Columbus in Ohio, United States of America, holds the MD, MPH degrees. She has been working for a long time with diabetes patients, particularly young diabetes patients, those who are in their adolescent stage and had been working hard to find a method to remind her patients about their own treatment activities at different points in time throughout the day.


    Finally, she was able to devise a method to do just that by developing an application for unlocked  iPhone4 users, who are in their adolescent stages, to remind them about them about their regular treatment activities, so that they do not miss a single dosage and mess with their treatment schedule. There was a pilot study just before this; examining if at all, text messages or SMS could be used to remind patients to take their dosages. This pilot study paved the way for the new application, which sends text messages to patients reminding them about their dosages. This pilot study found an increase in the adherence to treatment and improvement of blood glucose levels.


    Dyer then, made an application for a grant and decided to test the application on a more wide scale. If it is made available to the masses, it will allow the people in the management of their health, particularly for those suffering from chronic illnesses like diabetes. The idea is a wonderful thing and particularly for the youngsters, who are highly into text messages, is very helpful to them.

  • Recently AT&T had assured the investors that loss of unlocked iPhone4, or any such exclusive matter, will not adversely affect their earnings. Let us take a silent moment before we burst into maniacal, uncontrollable laughter. AT&T believes this honestly, and is not simply blowing smoke up and insulting its investors’ intelligence. However, you can be certain that there will definitely be rough seas ahead.


    Firstly, the iPhone has destroyed the market single-handedly in case of share of value. And in spite of android’s presence on several phone sets on every U.S. carrier, over a year was taken before it had the ability of eating away the market share of the iPhone. Every iPhone launch bested the last, demand for Apple smartphones has been too high to be available in bulk and waiting times for the phone grew even longer.


    I guess AT&T owns a C- in logic class. May be the cell phone carrier is forgetting the large chunk of iPhone consumers every year are mainly new customers (they are new users having switched from different carriers). The fact of a number of subscribers being on business or family plans might offer users a pause before they switch, but rumours regarding some Verizon iPhone are growing continually louder leaving behind many who still have not bought an iPhone as it is in the fickle network of AT&T.



    Other AT&T iPhone users were extremely vocal regarding switching the minute it comes on any other carrier — fees for cancellation be damned.


    The only negative that would have to be handled is the termination fee raised by AT&T just before the launch of iPhone 4 unlocked handset. Moving between $175 and $325 is nothing, but plenty of customers are nearing the closure of the contracts and might even be quite happy in paying the prorated termination fees so that they can grab an iPhone elsewhere.

  • Brace yourselves – Android tablet costs $150. This is not much of a surprise considering the fact that the Augen Gen of Touch 78 version, holding a pirated application of the Android is being sold with the help of Kmart. Android being freely distributed, one needs licenses to use some proprietary Google apps, and it looks like for these licenses, Augen didn’t want to spring any expenses.


    In order to receive the licenses of having Google applications (such as Google Maps, most likely the Market of android), one should be a part of Alliance for Open cellphone. Augen is not the reason for which some quirks in software are found. The Market of Android is present even in that tablet, but you will still not be allowed to download apps. Instead, applications can just be browsed until your eyes start bleeding. Although this is by far one of the best bargains you will ever be able to get, but a resistive feature of touch screen is quite bad. Apart from this, to add ice to this cake, the Market of Android has been installed only for viewing applications.



    Just when the Augen tablet became a cheap Shkit piece, it won’t let you have the ability to install apps from Market, and you got to be limited by the feature of resistive and sensitively pressure handler touch screen. But I wonder if there had been any way to perform some magic and enable ADB to push and pull, that will let you be allowed to install apps from the line of command. If one of them were to have success in it, this wouldn’t be that bad having the Gen of Touch 78 version. It is not being said that it would be so good though, it never would be that poor in quality. It goes to just show that really there is no desirable tablet of Android around yet; I hardly think as well that Dell’s Streak may fit the bill.
