Samsung

Moshi for iPad
  • It looks like Samsung is not completely done with their Galaxy S line of phones. The company recently had a table leaked that shows that they are planning on releasing a phone with a 1.4 GHz processor in European markets. The phone has been one of the few that is considered to be a direct competitor for the unlocked iPhone 4.



    The information came from a comparison sheet that showed off the new version of the device. The new device looks just like last years original, and is going to be sold for somewhere around $846 around Russia.


     


    Shortly after the information was leaked Samsung came forward to confirm the news about the new phone. It appears as if they decided that instead of having rumors and untrue information floating around the net like wildfire, that they would confirm the phone themselves and start promoting it.



    This is very exciting news for users of the Galaxy S line. It is easily their most popular line of smart phones and they have been continually able to find ways to update old devices with new features that keep the users coming - especially when they already have a hit on their hands with the device.


     


    Although the price is quite steep, the additions to the phone show that the company has put some real thought into improving the speed of the device. The Samsung Galaxy S unlocked will be branded as the “2011 Edition” of the device. So far the company has not released any commercial branding for the device. They have yet to announce when they will be releasing the phone in other markets outside of Russia, but with the popularity the phone has already garnered, you have to believe that they are going to look at releasing it elsewhere as well. Russia rarely receives devices first, but this current release of information shows that this case may be an exception to the rule.

  • New MTS 4G Network
    Posted on April 1, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    MTS has finally launched their 4G network for unlocked cell phone such as BlackBerry Bold 9780, Unlocked Nokia N8, Samsung captivate, etc.. that the company has been talking about for quite some time. The network has been in the works for a number of months and was finally activated for users after months of planning. This is huge news for customers that have been with MTS for quite some time. This will speed up their coverage and will also allow for more advanced plans for the company moving forward.


     


    This should provide download speeds that can reach up to 21 mega bytes per second, which will be nearly twice as fast as their previous speeds. The announcement came from the president of the company, Kevlin Shepherd, who is the usual face seen when the company makes large announcements such as this one.


     


    In his statement, he said that they were able to upgrade their entire coverage area and will give more device options to their customers. It was a huge investment for the company but is certainly one that they are looking to pay off in the long run. It is good to see that they are dedicated to upgrading the coverage offered, and provide higher speeds.



    MTS has continually upgraded their network, which directly benefits the end user.  With this most recent upgrade to 4G, they are officially up to speed with the current demands of a quickly changing industry. The press release from MTS was very detailed, and gave some insight into their future plans. The upgrade of their network will open up a number of new devices that were not previously available with MTS previously. Moving forward, look for their new phones to be announced, as well as a number of phones that will be able to run on the 4G network that was recently launched. There are many different phones that will open up to the company now that they have a 4G network.

  • Samsung’s app store has been steadily growing since it was first launched, and the company announced that they have officially passed the one hundred million app download mark. This is a huge number, and shows that third party app markets might be the wave of the future. Samsung has output a number of highly touted smart phones devices such as unlocked Samsung captivate i897, Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant, etc and their app market has grown as a result.


     


    There are currently more than 13,000 apps currently available throughout the market. That is more than six times as much as was there when the store was first launched. Some of hte most popular apps that are available through the Samsung app store include Speed Shift and Magic Torch, two very popular games.


     


    It looks as though most of the downloads have come from Europe, most of which come from France. Between France, Germany and Spain, the three companies have accounted for more than forty percent of the total number of downloads.



    Apps for unlocked Samsung phone have continued to grow in popularity and in the size of the pool of apps that are currently available. The overall quality of the Samsung applications has also consistently increased since the service was first launched. Consistently improving their service is something that the company has obviously taken seriously, and their 100 million downloads mark further proves that their efforts have paid off. Samsung appears to be leading the way in the third party app market industry.



    In the press release that was put out today also stated that the company is expecting to quickly grow throughout the course of 2011. With their upcoming new line of high powered smart devices, Bada, you can expect many new users to become interested in their app marketplace moving forward. Now the company will have to focus on attracting some of the larger app development companies in the space, in order to make more apps available moving forward.

  • 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.

  • AT&T Connects To Amazon App Store
    Posted on March 27, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    With the company behind the ultra popular Angry Birds releasing an Amazon App Store for unlocked cell phone exclusive new update for the game, AT&T is looking to enable purchases through the app store as well. This would be the first time that they have budged from only allowing users to download things from their own app store. AT&T has never previously allowed anything like this, and this should serve as a small shift in strategy for the company. They will be allowing their branded Android devices to have access to the Amazon App Store for the first time in the history of the company.



    AT&T released a statement saying that they were looking to allow users to access third party app stores, but also said that they were going to have to finish the agreements with Amazon first, and promised to share more information with their users at some point in the near future.


     


    Hopefully Angry Birds Rio, and other apps that are exclusively offered through the Amazon App Store will make their way to AT&T branded Android devices here soon. The announcement came as a bit of a surprise because AT&T has been mostly steadfast in their strategies prior to this, and this serves as a big change in the way that they do business.



    In order for this to happen there will likely have to be some sort of widespread update to the firmware, but the company has not confirmed this at this time. Could this be the first step in opening up the door for third party app stores in the future. They do already exist but have not been able to maintain much leverage with most carriers not allowing direct access to them. Hopefully this is the start of a change in the way that business is done within AT&T moving forward.

  • 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.

  • Logitech was recently seen hiring Android developers for what they described as a ground breaking upcoming release. While it is not currently clear whether or not this is the groundbreaking release they referenced, the company is releasing a new Squeezebox app for Android users such as unlocked Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, LG Eve GW620, etc  that will allow users to remotely control their Squeezebox. The app will utilizes a Wi-Fi connection and will allow users to use all of the usual controls that were not previously available in remote format.


     


    The app will also utilize the album artwork for whatever music you are playing at the current time. It will be interesting to see if htis is the groundbreaking release that they previously referenced. The app will only be available for Android 2.1 or later. The app will reportedly work with the Squeezebox Touch, Squeezebox Boom and Squeezebox Duet.



    The app is already available in the market, and more details can be found on the Logitech website, outlining all of the different uses that are included in the application. A full description is available there as well. It is good to see Logitech releasing applications for the Squeezebox which is a device that has received a lot of press over the course of the last few months, and many users were eagerly awaiting the release of an official remote app, since the device primarily works as an end-table music provider.


     


    Now Logitech fans can start speculating about the hiring of the android developers. The description of the job on their website seemed to suggest a much larger project than a simple remote app, but the company has not had many releases within the Android market so this could be the project that they were referencing after all. Logitech will probably not publicly address the issue, especially if this is not the project that they were referencing.

  • The tablet market has been heating up in recent weeks. With Apple successfully launching their unlocked iphone 4 and iPad 2 device to much critical acclaim, it appears as if SamSung is attempting to match, if not surpass the features that hte ocmpany offered with the upgraded version of the iPad. They have announced their new Galaxy Tab lineup that they have called the “thinnest mobile tablets” in the world at this time. The new tablets will have both 10.1 inch and 8.9 inch displays. These tablets will be a bit thinner than the iPad, and will be only 8.6 millimeters in width, and will weigh only 595 grams, which is much less than other tablets. The smaller, 8.9 inch display version will only weigh a total of 470 grams, which is nearly as little as some of the heavier smart phones out on the market.


    The devices will run on Android 3.0 honeycomb and will have a 1GHz dual core processor. The rear camera on the devices will be three megapixels and will also feature a 2 megapixel front facing camera that is able to record videos up to 1080p HD. All in all,t eh recently announced devices surpass the expectations of the users that have been eagerly awaiting the next version of the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy ( Tab).



    They are clearly following in Apple’s footsteps in an attempt to make the tablets as light and thin as possible to make them easily mobile. The 16 GB model of the 10.1 inch screen will cost $499, while the 32 GB will cost $599 total. The 16 GB model of the 8.9 inch model will cost a total of $469 while the 32 GB version will cost $569, which is a big discount over previous versions of the device, with only a slightly smaller screen.

  • Google Search App Gets New Toolbar
    Posted on March 20, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Google is always trying to find ways to innovate their apps and make them more user friendly. Now, instead of having to navigate through their text links on their website, they have updated their app to include a side bar that will give you access to all of the popular Google sub domains that help you to strengthen your searching capabilities.



    The new sidebar for the app looks very much like the sidebar that you see on your Unlocked Sony Ericsson Xperia X10a when you make a search in your browser on your desktop on Google. You can easily navigate between “everything,” which will show you images, news, blogs, videos, and websites all on the same search yield. The sidebar also allows you to narrow your search down to precisely what you are looking for. This means that if you are specifically searching for an image or a video, you can easily select the option on the sidebar, just as you would do on their website, normally, and have your searches filtered.



    This added functionality should make many users happy. The company also released a video demonstration of their app update. The update, as of right now is only being rolled out on iOS devices, but expect it to become available for all mobile OS at some point in the near future.


     


    some have stated that the side bar takes up too much of the screen, but Google addressed this by allowing you to slide the search results screen over the sidebar when you are sifting through the search results. This should make the entire app much more easily navigable, and the added functionality is something that Unlocked Samsung Nexus S Google users have been waiting for for quite some time. Before, you had to work your way through their text links as you would on the normal Google homepage to narrow down your search results. This was cumbersome, and many users found it to not be worth their time in the long run.

  • HTC Shooter Sighting
    Posted on March 18, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    HTC has kept their rumored HTC Shooter smart phone under wraps quite well since the rumors first started. Now, it looks as though some testing has been taking place with Sprint and the company incidently uploaded the results of their test online.


    Hardware engineers have to know how well their upcoming super phones can turn out 3D images when compared to competing phones. The phone will reportedly run on Android like unlocked HTC Vision G2 Desire Z, and was testing using a tool that is named GLBenchmark. Basically, this tool looks at how well your phone performs when compared to a similar phone, and then will upload the results of the test in your online account, which others can publicly view.


    The results that were uploaded online fall just short of the numbers that were set by the HD Mini, but well ahead of the numbers set by the HTC Aria. The benchmarking software is not able to look at every aspect of the device when it is turning out these numbers, but it did provide some very interesting hardware specs that many have been waiting for.


    The benchmark tests revealed that the phone will be running on Sprint, and will be running on the Gingerbread version of Android, which is version 2.3.2. the 960x540 resolution display is quite large overall. It will be based on, what appears to be anyway, the Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU (based on the numbers that were released by the benchmark) and will also most likely be a dual-core CPU. Some have suggested that this will not be a new smart super phone after all, and instead will be a successor to the EVO. Look for the company to release more information about the device in the coming weeks to clear up some of the confusion that the benchmark results may have created.
