  • Sprint Gets Rid of Mail In Rebates
    Posted on March 30, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Sprint has officially ditched their mail-in rebates model, and is now going to be going with an instant rebate model that provides instant savings to their users. Verizon also made a similar move at the beginning of the year. The move will mostly effect their most expensive cell phone. The idea behind the mail in rebates is that a certain percent of the customers will never take advantage of it and will just choose to pay the extra costs rather than spend the time mailing the rebate in. Also, there were issues with the mail in rebate never arriving, which was a complaint of many who took the time to pursue the rebate.


     


    The information was confirmed by Sprint. The official switch came on March 27th, and will continue well into the foreseeable future. The company has not stated whether or not this switch will be completely permanent, but did make it clear that they were willing to give it a shot for quite some time moving forward.



    If the switch is is only a temporary one, the company has not released any information regarding when users can expect it to disappear, so you might want to take advantage of the offer while it was there. The company made the move shortly after the same move was made by Verizon.


     


    It will be interesting to see if other carriers follow in the footsteps of both Verizon and Sprint. Getting rid of the mail in rebate is certainly something that would be in the best interest of their customers, but may not be in the best interests of the company. Look for more companies to make similar changes in the future if it leads to more sales of smart devices. That is the end goal but could result in reduced revenue for the company, which could mean that the offer doesn’t stick around quite as long as many are hoping that it will.

  • Can you imagine your car being completely compatible with your mobile provider to deliver you updates regarding the charging of your electric car right to your mobile device. This week, AT&T and Ford announced that they have put together a deal that will allow for wireless connectivity to be built directly into to the Focus Electric model that Ford is releasing.



    The deal will allow Ford to connect to AT&T for their MyFord Mobile app. This app will be able to let you know where your car is at, and exactly how much it has charged thus far. It will also give you a good idea regarding how much battery life you have left when you are not around your car.


     


    The app also helps you to schedule charging, setup notifications, and even has compatibility with other apps including MapQuest. All of the data is shared from the car to the smart device through the connection that is provided with AT&T.


     


    So far the app will work with Android, BlackBerry and iOS device such as iphone 4 unlocked. The company has not made any announcements about extending the compatibility to other platforms, but even if the pap does not work with your smart device, you can still use the web interface that is provided by Ford.


     


    A press release was released by both companies that explains in great detail exactly how this will work and what users can expect to get out of the new deal between Ford and AT&T. This could just be the first step in a larger process of connecting your car to your mobile carrier and device that could simplify many aspects of your life in the future. MyFord Mobile is available on the Ford website. It will be interesting to see where things head from here.

  • The Samsung App Store for unlocked cell phone such as Samsung Captivate i897, Samsung Nexus S unlocked, etc.. has a bit of a head start over other application stores because they operate on both cell phones and on televisions, but that is not stopping the company from issuing a statement that their app store has officially passed the one hundred million download mark. The mark is a huge one that is exclusive to only a few other app stores in the industry, and even though Samsung crosses through both the mobile and television industry with their app downloads, that does not make the number any less impressive.


     


    It has been ten months since the service first launched. It looks as though Europe is the primary downloading location for users of the Samsung app store. France had the largest number of downloads of any country, with Germany and Spain following closely behind. The three countries together combined to account for more than forty percent of the overall number of downloads from the Samsung App Store since it was first launched more than ten months ago.



    The app store is currently home to more than 13,000 applications. This number is smaller than most for unlocked BlackBerry Bold 9780, Torch 9800, etc.. other app stores, but is only seven thousand apps behind the BlackBerry App World store which recently hit the 20,000 mark. The Samsung App Store has quietly grown over the course of the last few months and has become one of the more popular app providers on the Internet. It will be interesting to see if they are able to keep up their huge rate of growth moving forward, or if they will slow down as so many other app stores have. The numbers that they announced are quite large for only having been around for the last ten months, but are still not touching the numbers of some of the more popular app stores, such as the Apple iTunes app store and the Android App Marketplace.

  • AT&T Makes Calling Japan Free
    Posted on March 16, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    With the recent issues that Japan has faced following the fallout of an 8.9 earthquake and the ensuing tsunami afterwards, AT&T has announced that they are going to allow their unlocked cell phone users to make free calls to Japan till the end of the month. Since the disaster, understandably, it has been very hard for people to contact relatives inside of the country. Making outgoing calls within Japan has also been difficult. Some of those from North America that survived the quake have still not been able to make contact with their families.


     


    The announcement by the company is the first of its kind. Shortly after the announcement by AT&T, both Sprint and Verizon announced that they were going to be extending the same offer to their users as well. They also announced that they were not going to charge users for text message fees to phones that are located within Japan.



    It is good to see that these huge providers are stepping up and making it as easy as possible for people to contact family members a world away. With the issues that Japan has had in recent days with both outgoing and incoming calls, this should ease the minds of those back in the states a little bit who were worried about charges that could pile up when they try to make contact with individuals in the Japan area.



    Text messages might be the best way to try to communicate, at least until things calm down. This will allow them to answer whenever the text goes through and will not require that they answer a call that may or may not go through. The announcements are welcome, and show that to these companies - it is not always all about the bottom line and profit that they could potentially see from a move.

  • Developer Spacetime Studios, the company that is responsible for making the game Pocket Legends, a unique MMO mobile game that is increasing the expectations for other MMO games that attempt to make the jump to mobile devices. As of right now, Android has overtaken Unlocked BlackBerry cell phone such as Bold 9780, Torch 9800 unlocked, etc.  what most people consider the most prestigious smart phone operating platform across the nation.


     


    The company has beaten the odds. While most developers claim that the Android market and other mobile platforms do not give them enough options to compete with the top companies in the space. After some internal research, Spacetime Studios discovered that they make up to 50 percent more from their Android users when compared to the iOS market.



    The ability for users to more easily purchase Android apps might be behind the spike when compared to iOS in iphone 4 unlocked. iOS does not have the easy to use platform that Google has brought to the table.


     


    So while some developers are finding that they are unable to compete in the mobile gaming market given the current structure of app marketplaces, that does not mean that there are not other companies that are able to find the niche that they are looking for, especially with Android users which do seem to differ substantially with users from the iOS platform, both in how they use their devices but also in what their general interests are.


    It will be interesting to see if other mobile gaming developers release their figures based on a by system basis. That could potentially shed more light on the industry as a whole. Instead o hearing these isolated negative remarks, it would be nice to know how the industry as a whole feels. It seems to be very dependant on the type of the game as well as the number of titles that the given country has going for it.

  • Research In Motion will be releasing a large number of different smart devices this year. Although the company has been known for their business phones such as Bold 9780, Torch 9800 unlocked, etc.. that usually come complete with a full QWERTY keyboard, the company has been looking farther into touch screen technology over the course of the last few months, and a recent patent issued by the company shows that they have gone as far as create their own touch screen technology.


     


    The BlackBerry 7 was recently announced, and with the upcoming PlayBook tablet just on the horizon, many have wondered what the company is working on now. It appears that they are going to be looking to release touch screen devices.


     


    The patent, which was appropriately named “Touch Sensitive Display with Capacitive and Resistive Touch Sensors and Method Control,” is described as a display that will detect the users touch with a resistive touch sensor as well as a touch sensitive display. The patent shows that the technology examines text areas, the force of the touch, and does its best to determine what the intended action of the user was based on a number of different characteristics.


    The display will then perform a function that is based on the characteristics that were outlined earlier.  It certainly is an interesting take on the touchscreen technology and appears to be a bit different from the technology that Apple’s unlocked iphone 4 and other companies are currently using.


     


    The idea sounds neat, but we will have to see it in action before we hand out any official judgment. If anything, the patent shows that Research In Motion is taking the creation of new touchscreen devices very seriously and is embracing a change in the core of their business. Of course, we probably won’t hear anything official about this for quite some time so it is probably best that you just focus on their confirmed upcoming releases instead of dwelling on potential touchscreen devices for now.

  • In this new cell phone age, smart device theft is something that has become all too common, and has really become quite a problem. Several apps have been released that attempt to solve the problem, but now the carriers themselves are getting in on it. Sprint has announced their total Equipment Protection Application, which shares a name with a very similar application in which it shares many features.



    With the new application, you will be able to track the whereabouts of your phone with a web interface, making it easy to see who has your phone and where they are headed, regardless of whether or not the phone is turned on. The Apple’s unlocked iphone 4 will allow you to sound an alarm even if the phone is muted. You can also lock the phone and wipe all of your contacts (which can then be restored if you are able to get your device back.) So far, the application is only compatible with Android and BlackBerry devices, and is completely free with Sprint’s Total Equipment Protection Program. Right now the program costs only $7 per month. That amount might seem like quite a bit, but for the knowledge of knowing that your device is always going to be able to be tracked and your data will always be safe, you really could not ask for more.



    Other features that have been rumored for similar applications are the ability to delete text messages and calling data as well, so that the thieves could not go through your text messages and retrieve information through them. Look for apps like this one to continue to grow in popularity and expand to other platforms in the future. Soon the days will be gone when people can steal your mobile device and activate it under their own plans. Applications like this one could effectively wipe out the underground black market of stolen cell phones that has run so rampant in recent years.

  • 150,000 Gmail Accounts Gone
    Posted on March 3, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    As per one of the leading unlocked cell phone blog site, More than 150,000 Gmail accounts disappeared as a result of a bug. All of the information contained in the accounts was also deleted. Imagine losing years of conversations and contacts. The initial estimate was 0.29% of all Gmail accounts, but that estimate was revised and said to be sitting more around 0.08% by the end of the day. According to a number of different reports, the correspondence within these accounts was also deleted throughout the past weekend. Users were unable to log in to their accounts. Once the accounts had been restored, the information within the accounts was mysteriously missing.


    Essentially, the accounts were completely reset and all that was left was the user-name and login for the accounts. Google has maintained that they believe they will be able to restore all of the data that was lost. until that time, users will not be able to access their GMail accounts because of the issue.


    Google quickly released a statement ensuring users that they were hard at work on the issue and stated that they would be working hard to restore full data access for the affected accounts. This is the first time that users have seen a mass deleting of their accounts and it is not clear what might have caused the issue. All Google has said so far was that it was some kind of bug, which seems to be in line with other reports that were released shortly following the deletion of the accounts.


    Users have been asked to not contact support and instead to stay updated with the progress through press releases that google issues. All of the deleted accounts are on the same page and none will be restored publicly before others. Although it is a very large hiccup on Google’s part, it sounds as if everything will be restored.

  • BlackBerry Storm 3 Video
    Posted on February 25, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The BlackBerry Monaco, also known as the Storm 3 has been widely reported on, and Research In Motion has not yet confirmed its existence at this time. The phone is set to launch in September for Verizon Wireless, according to a number of different reports, and will be the third version of the Unlocked Blackberry Storm series.


    The device looks very similar to previous versions of the phone. It will still have the trackpad that was seen on the earlier versions, and will have a touchscreen display, along with a beautiful looking screen. RIM is continuing their efforts to bring the BlackBerry platform back to touchscreen phones. They have had a number of previous touchscreen launches  but have never really been able to deliver in the same way that other smart devices have.


    The BlackBerry OS is traditionally meant for QWERTY keyboard devices. Transferring users over to a touchscreen device may take a little bit of getting used to. With the upcoming PlayBook just on the horizon, it is clear that the company would like to move a larger portion of their business to touchscreen phones so that they can easily attempt to capture the non-business market.


    Specs for the device have not yet been made available, but it is believed to feature a 1.2 GHz processor, and have NFC compatibility which will make it one of the most high powered phone releases to date from Research In Motion. The video that appeared online today pretty much confirms the existence of the phone that has been rumored for quite some time. It will be interesting to see if this forces Research In Motion to acknowledge the phone and release additional information about the specs.

  • inPulse Smartwatch Now Available for BB
    Posted on February 24, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The inPulse Smartwatch has been a much anticipated product for quite some time. There are a number of different colors and styles, and each model will be differently priced. You can expect to pay anywhere from $150 to $200 for the different models of inPulse Smartwatch.


    The watch will connect you with others by allowing you to send text messages, craft emails and even make incoming calls right on your watch. This will be great for users that want to stay connected but don’t want to look rude by pulling their phone out.


    The devices will also have calendar events, and will function as a wrist-based planner as much as it is a smart device. There are already several apps that are available, including iTunes, which will allow you to play music directly through the watch. Another app that is already available is Presenter, which allows you to check out presentations on your phone. The service is actually connected directly with unlocked BlackBerry phones, and will use the service that you receive for your BlackBerry device.


    The inPulse app has been highly anticipated by mobile users. The idea of being able to perform smart phone functions from a watch on your wrist is certainly interesting to say the least, and could come in handy for situations where phone use is not appropriate. Could these be the start of other accessory devices that connect you directly to the service that you receive on your phone?


    These will serve as the first generation of watch-based devices, and should pave the way for future generations. Because they have received so much attention already, you can bet that they will be looking to expand their features and options moving forward. The convenience provided by inPulse Smartwatches is something that any businessman on the go should be interested in.
