  • Sound Charge T-Shirt Charges Phone While You ListenIt seems as if every day there is a new device that comes out that allows you to charge your phone such as unlocked iphone 4 while you’re on the go.  Now the company Orange Sound has released a new quirky way for you to charge your phone when you’re out and about.  The company will be releasing a T-shirt that will generate an electronic charge from the sound around the phone.  The idea is that the church will create an electronic charge while users are out of concerts and shows, and then their phone can be plugged into the shirt to maintain its charge while they are out and about.  This is an interesting and quirky way for users to charge their phone even while they are out of their favorite concerts.  The company has not gone much farther than explaining that harnessing the power of the vibrations around the shirt are involved in creating the charge.


     


    So far they have not released any information about how much of a charge, or how long your phone will stay charge for when you’re using the T-shirt.  We would expect that the charge would not be very strong; it might just give your phone a few extra minutes of life while you were out at the concert.  However, it will probably make a great fashion statement that you can show off to your friends while you’re out and about.  As far as we can tell, the louder the environment that you’re in, the more charge the shirt will receive.  At the very least, the shirt will be great for starting conversations with people that you don’t know while you’re out and about.


    Sound Charge T-Shirt Charges Phone While You Listen


    Every day it seems as if there are new ways to charge your device, but most of them that have been released in recent times appear to be gimmicks.  A T-shirt that charges your phone based on the vibrations around you is not really all that feasible, but is an interesting concept that one day may grow into something larger and the interest in the shirt that we have seen so far is any indication.

  • New Huawei MediaPad Tablet
    Posted on June 21, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    New Huawei MediaPad TabletThe company Huawei has now announced their brand-new MediaTab tablet.  The new tablet will run on the Android 3.2 operating system, which is also known as honeycomb.  It will be a 7 inch tablet provided by Huawei, a company that has been looking to get into the tablet industry for quite some time.  The MediaTab will have a 1.2 GHz dual core processor, along with a nice five megapixel camera at the back of the device, accompanied by a 1.3 megapixel camera at the front of the device that will support video chats, and other great features that should make it one of the premier tablets released in recent memory.

    Along with the previously mentioned features you can also look forward to a top-of-the-line WiFi network technology, and HDM I out output that will allow for you to play the tablet screen on other displays including your television set, a micro-SD card slot that will allow you to add up to 32 GB of additional storage, expanding the functionality of the device as a whole.  The Huawei media pad is one that has been highly anticipated by users for quite some time, and the specs that we have seen so far seem to deliver on the demands and expectations of their customers.  The device will supposedly have an excellent battery life that will be much longer than most of the tablets that are currently out there on the market.  At the very least, they are expected to deliver more than six hours of battery life and all.  The MediaTab is expected to launch for the first time for consumer purchases this fall.


    New Huawei MediaPad Tablet


    So far the company has not indicated what the price for the tablet will be.  It is expected, that the device will be relatively low-priced in an effort to make it affordable to the average user.  Huawei is a company that has been teeming with American companies in recent times to expand their reach to North America, even though they are already quite a popular company throughout Asia for their excellent contributions to both the mobile phone market as well as the smart device market as a whole.  This will be their first tablet they have released and a lot is expected out of the Huawei MediaTab.

  • The all in analytical company, the Nielsen company, has announced that the usage of smart phone data has risen as much as 89% in the United States over the course of the first quarter of 2011.  The data consumed is rising at a very fast pace, and it appears that the largest users of data and the smart phone era or android users such as unlocked Xperia Arc, Samsung galaxy II, etc...  During the same period of time during 2010, the average smart phone user only used about 230 MB of data on their device.  However last quarter, the number went up significantly, about 89%, to as much as 435 MB of data over that same period of time.  The heaviest amounts of data that was used among the top 10% of all users of smart phones went from 1.8 GB during that quarter to 4.6 GB during that quarter.  Keep in mind, that these are the largest users of data in the smart phone era, and are not representative of all smart phone users.


    Smartphone Data Rises Significantly


    However, during the same amount of time the average cost to the user or per megabyte for smart phone data, dropped as much as 46% over that same period.  This shows that data is becoming progressively less expensive for most users, and shows that even though the amount of data that is being used is going up, it does appear to be getting cheaper.  The largest majority of users use very small amounts of data.  The largest amount of data was used by users in the 99th and 98th percentile, who used the bulk of the data that was gathered.  The cost of data per megabyte was $.14 in the first quarter of 2010.  This number dropped all the way down to eight cents per megabyte last quarter.



    It is interesting to see that android users are the largest users of data.  One would think that I phone users would be the largest users of data based on the number of people that own them.  Perhaps the low level of intrigue that makes the unlocked iPhone 4 so popular is one of the reasons why users do not use as much data.  Also, the fact that it is a closed interface could lead to more users using less data than Android users, which utilize an open interface.

  • Headphones Work As Cameras with iOS 5Have you ever wanted to be able to be even more stealthy with your photo taking ability? Well now you can, as one of the features that will come with the brand new iOS 5 is the ability to use your headphone remote as a camera shutter button. Technically, you do not even have to hit a button your phone in order to get it to take a picture now, which is a huge upgrade over the way that things worked with the previous version unlocked iphone 4. The shutter button was going to be the volume up button the phone, but luckily enough there is another device that has a volume up button - your headphone cable!


     


    This will be an interesting development. At this time it is not currently clear whether or not Apple meant for the button on the headphones to work like that or not, mostly because it would allow people to take pictures even more anonymously than they already do, but a number of Apple blogs and forums have pointed out that it does indeed work.


    Headphones Work As Cameras with iOS 5


    Keep in mind that if you are holding your phone you would just be able to take the pictures yourself. Of course, if you were to set your phone down somewhere and snap a photo using the ovlume up button on your headphones it would certainly allow you to be even more stealthy and no one would really have any idea that you were taking the pictures. It is an interesting feature, but at this time it is not clear if it was even meant to be a feature at all. We will have to wait and see if Apple patches before the release of iOS 5 before coming to any conclusions about it. You can already see how you might snap a lot of inadvertent photos with it.

  • Whistler Creates Mobile Lift TicketsThe Whistler Blackcomb app is here, and will add another level of flexibility to users who just do not want to wait in line in order to get their lift tickets. The new app will be available, for free, to both unlocked iPhone 4 and Android users. The new app will allow for users to get a number of features that skiers would be interested in having.


     


    First of all, you will be able to see the weather on the hills which is definitely something that most skiers and snowboarders would be interested in. Then, you will be able to see the kind of condition that the hills are in, which is another important part of taking a ski trip. Finally, you will be able to take a look at the status of all of the lifts in the park, take pictures, and even look at some of the cameras that they have set up around the park. You can even track how high you are on the mountain, and then share it via your favorite social networking site.


     


    Perhaps the best option that the app will have is the ability to use their cell phone such as unlocked Sony Ericsson Xperia Play as their lift ticket. Users will not have to purchase a paper ticket any more and instead will be able to purchase the lift ticket on their mobile device, and present that to the lift operators at the top of the park.


    Whistler Creates Mobile Lift Tickets


    The app is not currently available but the company said that they expect it to first become available in the near future. It is undoubtedly one of the best and most innovative apps for skiers and snowboarders that we have seen yet. Look for other ski resorts to adopt similar technology here in the near future. It is definitely something that any skier or snowboarder would be interested in.

  • American Airlines To Offer Galaxy Tab 10.1 To First ClassEver forgot your laptop or tablet when you get on a flight and wished that the airline provided one to you? Well now you might finally have the chance to live that little scenario out. American Airlines has announced that they are going to start providing the unlocked Samsung (Galaxy Tab 10.1) to their riders that are sitting in first class. This will be an option that is only going to be available on some of the longer flights that the company has to offer, but if it is a hit we could start seeing it more and more.


     


    So far, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be available on flights from Los Angeles to New York, San Francisco to New York, Boston to Los Angeles and Also Los Angeles to Miami. This is the first airline to begin this practice, but if it is successful you can bet that they will not be the last. All of the flights that the tablet will be allowed on will be 757s. These tablets may or may not come loaded with various apps, that information has not been released at this time. They will probably not have internet access, and if they do it will probably be provided by the airline itself to make sure that the device does not mess with any of the dials and functions on the plane.


    American Airlines To Offer Galaxy Tab 10.1 To First Class


    So far more than 6,000 tablets have been ordered by the company in total, and American Airlines will also be offering their passenger’s access to their onboard WiFi, which many expected following the announcement of the tablets being offered to their first class customers. Hopefully they will be able to put some movies and music on the tablets as well to increase the potential for entertainment on the devices.

  • HTC Sensation 4G
    Posted on June 16, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    HTC Sensation 4GThe unlocked HTC (Sensation 4G) is a device that has received a lot of attention as of late and for a good reason - it is one of the better devices that T-Mobile has ever had available on their platform. The features are impressive, the specs may even surpass the features, and it is quick with almost zero noticeable lag. To say the least, it is a device that can compete with any smart phone that has been released in recent memory. Featuring the dual core Snapdragon processor and a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2, it packs a punch to remember.


     


    The design and look of the device is great. It is surprisingly lightweight, and features two LED flashes along with 1080p Hd video capturing technology. The front facing camera on the device allows for video chat, which seems to come standard on most devices today. The phone is thin, and can fit into a pocket comfortably without issue.


    HTC Sensation 4G


    It runs on the new Sense 3.0 user interface. Normally, user interfaces provided by companies are subpar, but Sense is ahead of the pack and runs on top of the Android operating system, providing a unique experience that is great for the phone. The phone has made some interesting changes to the way that browsing is done, but for the most part the device is the same in terms of usability. ‘


     


    The battery life of the phone is much better than previous HTC releases such as HTC Google Nexus One unlocked, HD7, etc.., and it boasts the longest battery life of any HTC release at this time. It is an amazing device, and although they could have shaved off some weight and allowed for the Snapdragon processor to keep up with the 1 GHz dual core Tegra 2, it runs seamlessly without lag or hiccups for the most part.

  • App That Steals Passwords Banned
    Posted on June 16, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Getting rid of spyware and other malware in apps is something that Apple has always been pretty on top of, and them getting rid of a recent app that steals your passcodes is really no surprise overall. The app that was called the “Big Brother Camera Security” app that was used to steal the passcodes of users. The app was created by the developer Daniel Amity.


    App That Steals Passwords Banned


    The app attempts to trick users into setting a new passcode that is identical to the pin that they use to lock their unlocked iPhone 4 It was not clear exactly what he was going to be using that passcode for, but you can bet that it was going to be for something malicious. The developers intentions did not seem to be malicious from the get go, but apple was not going to allow that kind of app will be allowed in their marketplace. Apple is not willing to take the risk that the app would be used for the right purposes throughout its life.


     


    The app was banned from the app store, without them even giving them the chance to remake the app to get rid of the issues that got the app banned in the first place. The private PIN’s were not going to be able to be directly tied to the users that had installed the app, but who knows what they could have used them for in due time.


    App That Steals Passwords Banned


    This comes on the heels of the apps for android phones such as Motorola Atrix unlocked, HTC Desire, etc..  tore having many different problems with apps in their store being used for malware or malicious intent in recent days. With all of the attention that has been placed on that in recent days it was clear that Apple was not willing to take any risks with the Big Brother app.

  • New SceneTap App  LetsYou Find Happening Bars and PubsWith the SceneTap app launching here in just a month, you might want to get ready to use it in order to find out which clubs and bars are going to be worth your time on the weekends. The app will allow for users of Android and unlocked iphone 4 to take a look at the bars before they even go out on the town. They will be looking at different bars across the area using cameras that are already set up to give users an idea of what the crowd might look like on the bar on any given night, given users a real look at the demographics of the bar before they go.


     


    They are also adding some commentary into the app. To downplay the privacy concerns, they will not be providing any of the real steams from the bars so you do not have to worry about the privacy. You should also know that nothing is being recorded by the app. In the beginning, the app will look to cover about 50 clubs in the beginning in the Chicago area.


    New SceneTap App  LetsYou Find Happening Bars and Pubs


    They are expected to push this farther and cover more clubs in the future, but it will be a slow crawl from one pub to another, as some users of the app will likely do. The app has been heralded as a new type of social network that focuses only on nightlife. You can bet that they will look to also take a look at user reviews of different bars to get an idea of what works and what does not. This is one app that will probably get quite a bit of use from cell phone users such as Motorola Cliq unlocked, Samsung Captivate, etc. that are looking to go out on the weekends. They provide some really interesting stats about what is out there and what kind of people are at each of the bars.

  • Google Gets Rid of Malware Posed as angry Birds AdditionsGoogle has been hard at work to get rid of the apps that have made it into their marketplace that contain malware for the Android operating system such as unlocked Samsung Galaxy II, Xperia Play from Sony Ericsson. This is the third time a batch of Android malware has been discovered and has essentially been labeled “Plankton.” Apparently the app had the ability to access a server for instructions on what the app should do next.


     


    This is a pretty stealthy was for these developers to get their malware into the Android marketplace. With all of the questions that have arisen in recent weeks as a result of all of the malware that has been found in the Android marketplace it is apparent that Google is doing everything in their power to root out the issues.



    Unlike previous apps, Plankton did not use holes in the security of the phone to attack the user, but instead called to instructions that were stored on another server to do its dirty work. They also chose to promote the app as an add on to Angry Birds, which is easily one of the most popular games in the history of mobile. It will certainly be interesting to see how these apps are packaged in the future to get an idea of what to avoid. The hackers also packaged the apps as Cheat Apps for Angry Birds, which helped the apps to spread much more quickly. Previous apps utilized trojan horses that infiltrate the phone such as LG Eve GW 620 unlocked, HTC Desire, etc.. and send text messages to numbers, driving up the cost for the user. Google continues to fight the malware attacks but it is clear that people are looking to exploit vulnerabilities in the operating system. It will be interesting to see how Google responds to these threats moving forward and whether or not they will be able to put an end to the uploading of illegal materials.
