Moshi for iPad

  • On our Canadian blog, we've been speculating for months now about the launch date of BlackBerry's new BB10 operating system, and most of all, about the two new BlackBerry devices that go along with it.


    But the countdown has now officially begun! BlackBerry maker RIM recently that they'll be holding their BB10 launch event January 30, 2013. What's more, they'll be doing it simultaneously in different countries.


    But perhaps more so than the OS itself, what many of us have really been waiting for is the  hardware. The two new devices have been much-leaked over the past months, and have since been confirmed as a BlackBerry Curve-like Qwerty/touch phone and an all-touch device that will be the first of its kind for RIM.


    RIM will be unveiling its new BB10 smartphones January 30, a Qwerty/touch phone and an all-touch device

     


    So here's the really exciting part: not only will the January 30 event mark BB10's official launch, it'll also act as the unveiling for the two new BlackBerry handsets where the press release promises "details of the smartphones and their availability will be announced."


    But Mobile Syrup thinks they've already got a handle on that. Citing a Reuters report that "has Kristian Tear, RIM’s Chief Operating Officer, going on record," Mobile Syrup says new BB 10 devices are expected to hit stores “not too long after” the January 30 event.


    "Personally," writes Mobile Syrup, "‘not too long’ sounds like we could see them hit our carriers by February, but that’s purely speculation."


    In any case, such a date, if accurate, would not only be squarely within the first quarter timeframe that RIM previously gave for the launch of BB10 and release of the new BlackBerry smartphones but would actually be ahead of the March date some analysts had projected.

  • Lebron James dons Beats headphones on ESPN before a Yankees-Red Sox game

     


    For fashionstas, there's celebrity style – be it the latest handbag, designer suit, or ridiculously expensive shoe.


    But for us gadget lovers, there's star tech. We're always dying to know what devices the celebrities are using, and how they dress them up.  So this week, the Pure Mobile blog has scoped out the hottest mobile accessories in Hollywood.


    The good news? You don't have to be rich and famous to steal these stars' gadget style.


    1: Hugh Jackman's lime green iPad case


    We're green with envy for Hugh Jackman's lime iPad case

     


    Judging by his taste for green mobile accessories, you'd think Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman might have preferred to play a different superhero – the Hulk. He was spotted with this bright green iPad case while out and about.


    Well, if he ever needed a data cable to go with it, there's always the Apple-compatible  Fluro Green Sync n' Charge cable from Incase. Now we just need to get him a very small pair of purple pants...


    2: Blake Lively's black hardshell iPad case


    Blake Lively keeps it simple with a black hardshell iPad case

     


    We're not entirely sure who made the black hardshell iPad case Gossip Girl's Blake Lively is toting in this spicture, but our guess is Incipio.


    It defintiely has the look of a signature Incipio accessory and if you wanted to steal Blake's style, Incipio's Lexington HardShell case for iPad 3 in black is pretty much as close as you can get. Plus, it's probably way cheaper than copying her handbag.


    3. Reese Witherspoon's Pink BlackBerry Curve Case


    Lately, Reese Witherspoon has been showing her girly side with a pink BlackBerry Curve skin

     


    Reese Witherspoon likes to switch up her BlackBerry, as well as her smartphone cases.


    Lately she's been seen with an adorable, hot pink rubberized skin for her BlackBerry Curve. Love it? BlackBerry makes a similar rubberized skin in pink and white for girly-girls like Reese, and it coes in at just under five bucks. Style. Stolen.


    4. The President's black leather BlackBerry sleeve


    Presidential elegance: Obama's black leather Blackberry pouch

     


    When you're the President, you can't exactly go flashing a smartphone case with rhinestones on it. Instead, U.S. President Barack Obama keeps it classic, with a black leather Blackberry pocket sleeve on his belt.


    Get the look of Washington's most high-profile figure with the sleek and elegant black Leather Pocket case from BlackBerry. Just don't expect to take over the Oval Office or anything.


    5. Hollywood's obsession with Beats headphones


    Lil Wayne's insane diamond-encrusted Beats by Dr. Dre Headphones

     


    Hollywood, and recording artists in particular, seem to be obsessed with Beats headphones. The Beats by Dr. Dre line includes earbuds too, but it's the over-the-ear Beats models that have racked up a list of celebrity fans like Gwen Stefani, Lebron James, Justin Bieber and tons more.


    Gwen Stefani's more modest Beats headphones lack the precious jewels

     


    Lil Wayne even has a special pair of diamond-encrusted Beats headphones, though we're thinking those are probably pretty hard to come by. Still, you can rock stardom's leading headphones in models that don't cost more than than a king's ransom.


    Oh, Lil Wayne, why you got to be so fresh?

  • Samsung's latest "phablet," the Galaxy Note II, is currently only available in Titanium Grey and Marble White

     


    We get it. Smartphones are kind of like cars when it comes to color. Most people aren't going to rush out and get a hot pink or chartreuse model when they can stick with a basic hue like black or silver. And accordingly, smartphone makers tend to play it safe with new devices, usually releasing them in a pretty sober spectrum.


    But, just like cars, sometimes we want our cellphones to be a little more distinct and it seems Samsung gets that. The company launched a new line of nature-inspired colors for their Galaxy S III phone back in August, and SamMobile reported today that they'll be doing the same with their latest "phablet," the Galaxy Note II. At the moment the device is only available in Titanium Grey and Marble White.


    Samsung's color variants for the Galaxy S III line (L to R): Sapphire Black, Garnet Red, Amber Brown, and Titanium Grey

     


    So far, the Galaxy Note II's new color variants are just a rumor. SamMobile cites an "insider" who says the new device will start rolling out in new hues like Amber Brown, Topaz Blue and Ruby Wine as early as this December or the beginning of 2013.


    And while we've already seen the color Samsung calls Amber Brown in their newest Galaxy S III models, the other rumored color names don't match up to anything we've seen from Samsung yet.


    In any case, if you've been thinking about getting a Galaxy Note II but haven't done so yet, it might be worthwhile to wait until after the holidays, unless of course you're into basic black and minimalist white.

  • Little capsules, big sound from XMI's X-Mini II Capsule Speaker

     


    They may look like Christmas ornaments in the above pic, but today's pick for mobile accessory of the week, the XMI X-Mini II Capsule Speaker, is probably more fit as a stocking stuffer.


    These diminutive pod speakers may be small, but they pack big sound. And since they're compatible with pretty much every laptop, smartphone or media player out there – from iPod and iPhone to BlackBerry and Android handsets – there's a thousand and one uses for them.


    XMI's X-Mini II Capsule Speaker is compatible with almost every laptop, media player, or smartphone out there

     


    There are a lot of speakers for smartphones and other devices on the market, but there are a few reasons we like the X-Mini line.


    First is their size. Truly mini, this round little ball of a speaker fits in the palm of your hand and is small enough to easily slip in your pocket.


    But don't be fooled. Just one of these babies can produce a nice loud sound that's full and clear. Plus, their Bass Xpansion System will give you top notch bass performance – none of that tinny nonsense you normally get from upping your laptop's volume to the max.


    Not to get too personal here, but I've used them in lieu of a sound system at parties and they really do give volume and clarity that rivals a stereo, except you can use them anywhere: in the car, outdoors, whatever.


    You can interconnect a bunch of X-Mini II Capsule Speakers for a crazy daisy chain of super volume

     


    Though one X-Mini Capsule Speaker is usually enough, if you're really looking for movie theatre-level volume, they've each got a Buddy Jack, so you can connect a few together to make a crazy daisy chain of sound.


    Lastly, we love them because they look as good as they sound. Compact, round and neat, they come in a huge range of colors, from basic black and silver to green, blue, orange, red, pink and even purple.


    You could even hang a bunch of red and green ones on your tree this year instead of decorations and see how long it takes for all the pine needles to blow off. We're guessing it wouldn't take long.

  • Amid the slew of smartphones being released right in time for the holiday shopping season, Google's new LG-made Nexus 4 is winning the popularity contest.


    Within hours of going on sale on the U.K.'s Google Play store on Monday, the latest nexus smartphone sold out. Same story in Australia, except that the successor to Google's Nexus 7 Tablet, the Samsung-made nexus 10, was also listed as "out of stock" before the day's end.


    Meanwhile,  BGR reported that in the U.S., it took only minutes before all available units of both the 8GB and 16GB models of the Nexus 4 sold out on Google Play. And before long, 32GB models of the Nexus 10 were out of stock, with only 10 units of the 16GB model remaining.


    To use the old adage, tehy're selling like hotcakes. But it's not hard to see why.


    Starting at $299 for the unlocked Nexus 4, the pricing is pretty competitive compared to other smartphones, especially considering its specs: Snapdragon S4 quad-core processor, 4.7-inch True HD IPS screen with a resolution of 1280×768 resolution, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean to boot.


    However, it doesn't have LTE – if it did, people would probably be killing each other for it at that price – but TechCrunch is right in saying that it's essentially "a high-end 3G device for a mid-range price."


    Likewise, there's no reason that demand for the Nexus 10 Tablet should cool down anytime soon. Starting at $399.99, it's greatest draw is its super-sized 10.1" 330PPI display, one of the biggest tablet screens out there.

  • Unveiled at an event in New York yesterday, HTC/Verizon's Droid DNA has already been getting rave reviews. Photo courtesy of CBS.

     


    Recently, the Pure Mobile blog reported on an upcoming HTC/Verizon event slated for November 13 in New York city. When the invitations started rolling out, most (including us) assumed only one thing – HTC's latest smartphone, the Verizon-bound Droid DNA, would be making its first official appearance. Well, we all assumed correctly.


    The event may only have wrapped up yesterday, but reviews are already in, and they're looking good. No, they're looking great, as major Tech sites start loading praise on the black and red device that may just reverse HTC's less than stellar fortunes of late.


    "I may have (finally!) found my new Android Smartphone," wrote one BGR writer, while an article from Gizmodo described the new device as simultaneously "nuts" and "sick."


    The Droid DNA is HTC's first flagship phone for Verizon in quite a while, but the company seems to have made up for lost time by putting out what Gizmodo calls "the most impressively spec-filled smartphone the world has yet known."


    at 440PPI, the Droid DNA's 5" display beats out the competition

     


    Speaking of specs, where do we start?


    TechCrunch has called out the new smartphone's screen as its "biggest claim to fame." The 5" Gorilla Glass display is unique to the Droid DNA in North America – only the Japanese HTC Butterfly J has one like it. And with a resolution of 440 pixels-per-inch, the 1080p Super LCD3 screen certainly outpaces competitors like the iPhone 5.


    Ok, so what's under the hood? The Droid DNA boasts 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a quad-core, 1.5Ghz Snapdragon Qualcomm processor, with 4G LTE sharing the same chip as the application processor. "Having one chip instead of two improves battery life," writes CNET.


    But if your battery does run out of juice, the Droid DNA has wireless charging capabilities, though as TechCrunch notes, there aren't many details yet about accessories for that.


    Powered by Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, the device is NFC- and LTE- capable, and comes with Beats Audio. And its 2.1 megapixel front-facing and 8 megapixel rear-facing cameras are up to standard as compared with other recent devices.


    So, how much will HTC's best smartphone to date run you, and when will you eb able to get your paws on its super-sized screen? The Droid DNA is already available for pre-order, but it'll be heading to Verizon for November 21 at a price of $200 with a 2-year contract.

  • A poster in the Windows Phone Central forums uploaded images of his Surface Tablet, which still works after being run over by a car

     


    It's doubtful whether any owner of a new Microsoft Surface Tablet would perform the following test on purpose, but a poster in the Windows Phone Central forums has unwittingly discovered what happens when you run over the device with a car.


    You know how sometimes, before getting in your car, you'll forget a cup of coffee on the roof of the car, only to have it whip off into the road a block or two away? Well, this unfortunate man did more or less the same thing, but with a his tablet.


    Aside from some superficial dents and scratches, the tablet is still intact

     


    Noticing some trash cans that needed to be taken in outside his house, he set the Surface Tablet on the car roof and, forgetting all about it, drove off to work. Naturally, as soon as he realized what he'd doe, he turned right around and drove back the direction he came from, to find his Surface Tablet lying in the middle of the road:


    "[I] watched the last group of traffic drove by. Each car passed by with the tires on each side of the Surface until the very last car. The tire of the car ran completely over the Surface and next thing I saw was my brand new $700 tablet and touch cover flying through the air in separate directions!"


    Long story short, the poor guy was delighted when he opened up the tablet and found that, not only was the screen completely intact but that, hitting the power button, everything worked as it should.


    "The Surface feels completely sturdy, exactly like how I got it. Everything works in it, even the touch cover (which got a slight tear in it) works completely fine! Microsoft has made such an incredible product, I am completely speechless how this could happen!," he wrote.


    The tablet has a few scratches dents and dings, but otherwise survived no worse for wear.  Needless to say, the poster is pretty happy about his choice of tablets, writing: "This product is insane! I would love to see what an iPad looks like after getting run over by a car going 60 mph!"


    "There is not a single scratch nor crack in the screen!" wrote the relieved tablet owner

  • Today, RIM announced a January 30 launch event for BB10

     


    Hot off the presses, that's how we like our news at Pure Mobile. And it doesn't get much fresher than this: About an hour ago, BlackBerry maker RIM officially announced the launch event for their long-awaited new OS, BB10.


    A couple of months ago, after postponing the release of BB10, RIM had simply alluded to a rescheduled launch date in early 2013. But we now know the event will go off January 30, simultaneously across several locations worldwide.


    To go with the launch of BB10, RIM has also promised something many of us have been anticipating even more than the OS itself – two new BlackBerry smartphones that run on BB10.


    Still from a video leaking BlackBerry's two new BB10 handsets

     


    The devices have already significantly leaked in video and pictures, indicating that while one of the BlackBerry smartphones will have the company's signature Qwerty keypad, the other will be BlackBerry's first all-touch smartphone. Rumor aside, however, we'll actually get to see the real deal come January 30, when RIM promises "details of the smartphones and their availability will be announced."


    As TechCrunch notes, because we've all had a chance to get familiar with the new smartphones' software (albeit through leaks), we can expect not only the availability for the devices but pricing as well.

  • OtterBox Defender 'Punk' Case for iPhone 5 in Green

     


    Happy Friday, folks!


    After staring our 'Mobile Accessory of the Week' feature on the Pure Mobile blog last week, we're back with another great accessory review. Last week it was all about toys, with an iPhone-controlled monster truck that we'll admit is more fun than practical.


    But this week, we're getting into the real essentials, with the only thing that stands between you and a busted iPhone – a good case.


    One of the top picks for iPhone protection, OtterBox has mastered the balance between rugged and cool, with their Defender line of ultra-resistent but design-conscious cases for iPhone 4, 4S and 5.


    OtterBox Defender Case for iPhone 5 in Pink Realtree Camo

     


    With a three-layer design that combines hard-shell and silicone layers with a built-in screen protector, OtterBox's Defender Case gives you the best of both worlds – the durability of a hard case and the shock absorption of a soft case.


    And though the Defender case acts like a bullet-proof vest for your iPhone, it certainly doesn't have to look like one. OtterBox has been clever enough to offer looks for all tastes.


    There's the sporty, modern look of the 'Punk' model for iPhone 5, which features solid colors in high contrast, as well as the more feminine iPhone 5 model in Pink Realtree Camo, which is kind of like the Powerpuff Girls of iPhone 5 cases – cute and sweet but mega tough.


    OtterBox Defender Case for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S in Black Realtree Camo

     


    Sometimes, OtterBox's choice of design even goes beyond looks. The company itself has recommended their Realtree Camo Defender case for iPhone 4 and 4S as an accessory for hunters, promising "we've got the protection that withstands the punishment you endure."


    Sounds pretty legit.

  • This sparsely-worded invite to an HTC/Verizon event brings more questions than answers

     


    Amid a pre-holiday frenzy of press functions and device releases, there's yet another event slated for the season. This week, HTC and Verizon began sending out invitations for a joint event in New York City November 13.


    And while many other events have had a healthy enough rumor mill to prematurely supply answers to the inevitable questions, the HTC/Verizon to-do doesn't.


    The main speculation surrounds a possible unveiling of the new HTC-made Droid DNA handset. The Verizon-bound smartphone's existence has already leaked in pricing lists, and the assumption is that the two companies will be using their November 13 event to launch the device.


    A Minimum Advertised Pricing list obtained by AndroidCentral may confirm the existence of HTC's Droid DNA

     


    But that in itself has only raised more questions. The event invite hints at "our latest collaboration." Does that phrase refer to the Android-powered Droid DNA? if so, will the HTC smartphone be a Verizon exclusive?


    Or, as Engadget has speculated:


    "What if this is just a coming-out party for HTC's 8X Windows Phone flagship? It's not a far-fetched idea: we already know it's coming to Verizon, but the exact pricing and on-sale date have yet to be revealed. Then again, the 8X has already been shown off at a press event or two, and we're not sure a Verizon-branded variant would merit such a high-profile news conference."


    Still, with just a sparsely-worded invitation to go on, there's not much we can say for certain at the moment. It looks as though we'll have to just sit tight and wait for all to be revealed next week.


    That is, unless we catch a break and the whole thing leaks. One can always dream...
