  • The number of Apps available for Googles Android is expected to reach 140,000 within the next couple of weeks as the market place becomes increasingly competitive. While still lagging behind the number of apps available for the unlocked iPhone4 by an estimated hundred thousand Android is increasingly becoming a respectable alternative for those attracted by the variety of third-party software available for the iPhone.


    However when comparing the two markets the quality of Android apps are often brought into question. This is because unlike Apple, who review and check every App that they allow to be sold or downloaded, Android apps are subject to very little quality control. This means that many apps are malicious or in some cases just useless.


    An example of malicious software is the recent news in the headlines that many third-party apps were transmitting users GPS location and phone number to advertising servers which many people have seen as a severe breach of privacy.


    However this isn't always the case. One successful and safe Android app is the Geolocation based Foursquare which has just released version 2.0 to Unlocked Motorola Milestone Android users. Foursquare utilises the GPS function on phones to allow users to 'check in' to physical locations so they can show friends where they have been.


    As this shows, the Android app market still has a lot to offer but users may have to be more aware and perhaps tech savy if they are to avoid installing malicious content. It is worth noting however that Google dismiss this criticism citing that “Not only must each Android app get users' permission to access sensitive information, but developers must also go through billing background checks to confirm their real identities, and we will disable any apps that are found to be malicious.”

  • This may just remain speculation for now but it is important and hence we think that one should know that the Nexus One Phone has finally got the capacity to be able to record video in High Definition 720p resolution. This device will record the video on the new CyanogenMod 6 Froyo ROM which has been installed in it. The latter is actually the greater news than the HD video recording as the capability for recording video in this quality is not really new for the Nexus One but it is actually the first time that this feature is being linked with the new CM6 Android 2.2 Froyo edition. This is something which is exciting for us. According to the news that we have got, this mod for Nexus One has only been made available for the CyanogenMod editions which are greater than the recent RC2 and therefore we need to be patient at least for some time when it gets incorporated into the next CM6 release.



    This mod is actually accessible as a kind of path and can be transferred to other ROMs but for now, the 720p recording is exclusively available on the CyanogenMod. Therefore the owners of the Nexus One will not have to be jealous of the similar Sense bearing counterpart which is the HTC desire Unlocked smartphone which has received the feature of recording video in 720p for a long time. As far as the quality of recording goes, we have found that the video comes pretty good even in low light conditions and clarity is very good in the images. However if you are using the built in microSD card which comes with this phone then you probably will have to upgrade to a new one for the time being at least. This phone is far from gone and it will be receiving a lot of new similar modifications soon.

  • The striking sales figures that Android Unlocked iPhone 4 has produced have left Android fans awed and maybe a bit aghast too. Over 1.7 million Apple phones have been sold in the last few days. On comparing this with the sales of the Sprint EVO that broke all records by crossing 66,000 in just two days, it is clear why people are worried. From a study of the blog posts on this topic one wonders whether Android would be completely wiped out of the market by the swarms of iPhone being used by people all over. However, this does not mean that Android is in despair or grave danger of obsolesce, well, not yet though.



    THE USERS


    A recent study known as the ‘Crowd science study’ conducted its survey on Blackberry, iPhone and Android users. Our evidence is party based on this study. The study resulted in the saying that Android and iPhone users had much likeness: the groups were extremely loyal to their own OS, none were interested to change platforms, and both had many similarities in the pattern in which they used their phones. The most likely to change platforms and least loyal users are the Blackberry users. There are more than 25,000,000 people in the world who use the iPhone; this clearly means that it is highly likely for Apple to sell more iPhone, even to the existing patrons of Apple. (24.89 million iPhone sold by Apple in 2009)


    THE TECHNOLOGY
    As highlighted by Jobs in his note, the features of iOS 4 that attracts users to upgrade are better processor, better display, greater flexibility for user interface (app folders, custom wallpapers etc), multitasking. Better display and better processor are the items that are well matched by the latest Android phones. Multitasking and flexibility are selling points meant for iPhone users and meaningless to those using Android, as these abilities are in-built in the OS.

    The best and most common argument regarding the iPhone supremacy is the App store. However, Android like the Google Nexus One market is catching up slowly as its growth is quite steady; it has some spectacular apps that are unique to Android. The edge that App store once had in the matters of quality and quantity is nowadays disappearing.

  • We, like, several mobile phone enthusiasts have heard about the rumors of the Samsung Galaxy i9200 or the Unlocked Galaxy ( S2 ) which was supposed to be carrying specifications which would make it probably the best phone that ever existed. However, after doing some research by ourselves, we are led to believe that this phone might just not be reality but a big hoax. This is equally difficult for all of us as even we were very excited after hearing about the Galaxy S2. If this is to release, god only knows what the costs are going to be of this one.


    Some of the specifications on this phone are downright astounding. The super AMOLED 2 screen which is said to be coming on this phone is honestly too much of a long shot. After the huge success of the first line of the super AMOLED screen, Samsung has been flooded with the demands for the latter. Therefore it is highly unlikely that they will be going in for a revamp of it any time now, rather by early 2011 which was when this phone was supposed to come out. This is not the end of the worries for this phone. The huge read only memory which has been quoted for this phone is pegged at 4 GB, which is absurd. Why would a phone carry this kind of memory?


    The Google’s Unlocked  Nexus One which is a kind of a leader in terms of smartphones will be left far behind if the specs given above along with others like 32 GB internal and 32 GB expandable memory are allowed. For a one year leap in development, these kinds of specifications are a little too much suspect.  However with all the controversies aside, there have also been arguments which say that this kind of development may just be possible at the speed of the work which is being done today.

  • Desire takes on the iPhone 4
    Posted on July 14, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    Android fans on T-Mobile, UK, can get their beloved Unlocked HTC ( Desire ) at a lesser price. HTC has taken some serious steps to battle the iPhone 4, and one of the most significant steps it has taken is cutting the price. Customers can avail the HTC Desire at about $55 when they sign up for a contract. This contract includes 100 text messages, 100 minutes, and 3GB of data. Users can also get the Android-powered handset for about $76, when they avail a monthly contract, which will include 500 text messages, 600 minutes, and 3GB of data. The previous package comes for $30 per month, while the second package comes at $38 per month. This move was initiated by HTC to take on the iPhone 4, which has been recently released, and is available on Vodafone, for $332, and a monthly contract.


    Whether this move will give the Desire an edge over Apple’s iPhone 4 is anyone’s guess. It will take a lot for Desire to gain an upper hand against the iPhone 4, considering its “new ness”. But then, the Desire is a fine handset, and it is essentially a Google Nexus One unlocked handset, with HTC’s Sense software.


    HTC has truly done a wonderful job with the Desire. The handset comes equipped with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, which makes switching between applications mighty easy. It has a 3.7 inch AMOLED screen, which is fully touch-enabled, and has Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and a rocking 5 megapixel camera.



    The iPhone 4 unlocked handset  is probably a little better. It has an A4 processor, a variety of connectivity options, almost all that you would expect from a smartphone, and it also has a 5 megapixel camera, and can shoot videos in high definition. Although the screen is smaller than that of the Desire, it has retina display that includes 326 pixels per inch.


    All in all, hopefully, HTC’s efforts will pay off, and it will be able to give the Desire a higher market than the iPhone 4.

  • The messaging phone line up of T-Mobile has most of its hardware sourced from Samsung. But the Unlocked Motorola ( Charm ) is an exception to that rule. There introduction of the slider with a QWERTY pad will be bringing Android OS to the list of messaging phones that are affordable.



    This fact is known because the recenty posted back-to-school ads are by T-Mobile, where we can see the glory hanging behind all the Samsung messaging phones. These messaging phones include the Samsung Smiley, Samsung Gravity T, and the Unlocked  Samsung (Gravity 3). But the only difference there is, is that of the Motorola Charm’s Android OS. This project is part of T-Mobile’s back-to-school promotions. These advertisements will be enticing for parents, whose kids will be going back to their respective schools, once they reopen after vacation.


    Messaging phones are basically phones which concentrate mainly on messaging facilities. They are also known as dumbphones, as they lack the traditional smartphone OS, but they make up this deficit with a full QWERTY keyboard. The Motorola Charm is like a link between dumbphones and smartphones. It has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, with Android OS. Thus two problems are solved in a single phone.



    According to T-Mobile, their phones for messaging will be for free, making the Motorola Charm the cheapest phone with the Android OS.  In other words, it is the cheapest smartphone powered by Google’s Nexus one unlocked phone  operating system available with new contract, for free. Magenta is yet to announce the specifics about the launch, but there is a high chance the Charm may be introduced a month before school reopens. Hopefully, there will be many who would want to lay their hands on one of these babies, and hopefully, the Charm will work well on people.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The new Unlocked Motorola Milestone Droid(X) has now been released in the market at Best Buy prices which gives you the cutting edge mobile telephony technology. Best Buy prices ensure that you will be getting an additional discount on the phone that you buy and it helps you escape the rebates from the direct service providers which are more of a hassle to avail of. The Droid X is definitely one of the meanest new phones on the Android platform.



    With respect to the terms of the Best Buy option, the Droid X will set up back by $199.99 and you have to enter into a two year contract with Verizon. However as a customer, one should know this that if you do want to get out of the contract, you have to pay a hefty amount of $350 which allows you to cancel the deal.


    There has been an official statement which has been released by Best buy mobiles which is sure to whip up the excitement among the users. The Droid X will be released for pre sale orders by the 25th of June and they will be delivered at the stores by the 15th of July. For those interested in keeping up to date with the Best Buy phones, an eye should also be kept on phones like the


    HTC  Unlocked (EVO 4G) for the Sprint


    iPhone 4G for AT & T which are already available.



    The Best Buy Store officials hope that with the recent heightened popularity of the Android platform, the Droid X will really take off among the consumers in the pre sale period. The phone itself comes with Google’s Nexus One Unlocked Android 2.1 operating system along with HD playback and recording capability.  An upgrade on the operating system will also be made available soon in the next year.
