    Incipio Feather Lumia 920 Cases all colors


    You may not be able to find cases for Lumia 920 by the boatload like you can for iPhone 5 and Galaxy S4. But Nokia' flagship Windows Phone is nonetheless a great device and, if you know where to look, you can find some great accessories for it. Here, Pure Mobile is rounding up three of the best Lumia 920 cases, as we pay our dues to one of the best devices on the market.


    For starters, Incipio shows that what's good for Apple is also good for Nokia, with a model of its Feather carrying case for Lumia 920. Like other incarnations of this slim and compact hard case, the Feather for Lumia 920 boasts a barely-there weight and modern minimalist design, along with all the protection you need to keep your phone safe from daily wear and tear.


    Pictured above, the Feather for Lumia 920 comes in a slew of colors that range from more professional to fun and vibrant.


    Another hard shell case, Nokia's own officially-branded Protective Cover case for Lumia 920 is the very definition of a custom-designed carrying case. Made to be a perfect match, it comes in all the same signature colors as the Lumia 920, so you don;t have to sacrifice the unique look of your favorite smartphone.

    Finally, if you're the flexible type and prefer soft shell to hard shell cases, G-Zed Mobile's latest Lumia 920 case will probably be a perfect fit for you.


    A swanky and modern skin made of high quality, flexible TPU, the G-Zed Mobile Skin for Lumia 920 combines a sleek, glossy finish with a smooth matte finish, and incorporates curved design elements for a unique and attractive look.

    So whether you're looking for an officially-branded accessory, something soft and flexible or the most lightweight carrying case out there, these three offerings from Nokia, Incipio, and G-Zed are among the best Lumia 920 cases you can find.

  • Incipio NK128 Feather Nokia Lumia 920 Case All Colors


     


    For today's Pure Mobile accessory of the week, we're putting the spotlight on everyone's favorite Windows Phone, with Incipio's Feather Nokia Lumia 920 Case.


    Already one of Incipio's most popular line of carrying cases, the Feather is a beautifully minimalistic, versatile and above all lightweight carrying case. And though we're already quite familiar with incarnations of this accessory in models fro the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S4, it seems particularly suited to the sleek and streamlined flagship Nokia phone.

    Daily wear and tear is never a worry with this Nokia Lumia 920 case. Thanks to its high-density Plextonium hardshell construction, the Feather protects form all manner of bumps, shocks and scratches. But because the material used is so lightweight, this awesome Nokia accessory certainly lives up to its name as one of the toughest and lightest cases on the market.


    Then there's the sleek and professional look of the Feather case for Lumia 920. With its smooth, matte finish and clean lines, it's totally in keeping with the device's slick and modern design.


    Not to mention the fact that you don't have to sacrifice Nokia's fun focus on color. Just like the Lumia 920, this carrying case also comes in a  bright lineup of vibrant colors, from basic black and sophisticated grey, to sweet pink and bright blue.

    If you're looking for the best Lumia 920 case, there are still plenty of options. But if you're looking for something compact, lightweight and resilient with a smooth look and fun color, Incipio's Feather is hard to beat.

  • Samsung announcement of the London premiere of new Galaxy and ATIV devices Samsung announcement for the London premiere of new Galaxy and ATIV devices

     


    For the past couple of months now at Pure Mobile, Samsung's Galaxy S4 has been the big talk. We've practically been eating, sleeping and breathing Galaxy S4 cases and accessories since the device's launch. And, as of this month, Galaxy S4 sales had started to close in on those of the iPhone 5.


    But we can hardly expect this to be the last of Samsung's successes. And the company announced today that it will be holding an upcoming roadshow event, the "Premiere 2013" in London next month.


    The teaser poster for the June 20th event mentions Galaxy and ATIV devices, so we're pretty sure the company will be unveiling its latest Android and Windows devices. As for the teaser pics on the poster, which don't exactly spell things out, Engadget thinks they could relate to a a tablet or phone, laptop, and camera:


    "The remaining tiles show partial shots of three mysterious devices -- possibly a tablet or phone, a convertible laptop (à la Sony VAIO Duo 11) and a camera (maybe the rumored Galaxy S 4 Zoom?)"


    Oh, and speaking of rumors...before its official unveiling, Samsung was touting the Galaxy S4 as "the next big thing." But a recent leak could suggest that that Galaxy S4's successor could actually be the next little thing.


    According to BGR, which cites various sources, "Samsung is working on half a dozen different versions of its new flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone, including a more manageable variant called the Galaxy S4 mini."


    And the fact that the device  – presumably a smaller-scale version of the Galaxy S4  – actually briefly showed up online in Samsung's official app catalogue for the UK indicates that this is more than mere rumor. Indeed, as BGR put it, "the phone has now been confirmed by Samsung, albeit accidentally."


    So while we at Pure Mobile will probably still be obsessing over the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 accessories for the next month or so, we've got a feeling that, come the London event, we'll have an all new lineup of Samsung smartphones, tablets and other devices to sweep us off our feet.

  • Now that the launch of the Surface tablet is history and the Windows 8 hoopla will be behind them today, Microsoft is revving up for their next event: release of the new devices that will run on Windows Phone 8. Lucky for all of us, Microsoft will live stream the event to be held in San Francisco on Monday, October 29th. Get ready for a broadcast at 10am PST.


    Microsoft will also show off more Windows Phone 8 features like Xbox Music, new competition for Spotify and iTunes. “There are a whole series of…new capabilities and features that will come that we haven’t talked about and there’s integration with Windows 8 that we’ll demo closer to the date,” promises Greg Sullivan, Microsoft’s Windows Phone senior product manager.


    Both product manufacturers and wireless providers have been announcing they'll be showing off a range of Windows Phone 8 devices at the event. The lineup includes HTC’s Windows Phone 8X and 8S, Samsung’s ATIV S, Nokia’s Lumia 820 and 920, and Verizon’s exclusive Nokia Lumia 822 (aka the Atlas). There’s also an outside possibility that ZTE will be there with a Windows Phone 8 device, too.


    Hopefully Microsoft will be specific about shipment dates for Windows Phone 8 devices. So far, we've only heard that they will begin shipping in November.


    In the meantime, Microsoft is showing its new Windows 8 to the world today.

    If you want to catch a glimpse of an early build of Windows Phone 7.8 running on a Nokia Lumia 900, check out the YouTube video by a Microsoft senior manager at Microsoft’s Redmond campus.


    The following video demonstrates live tile resizing in all three modes - small, medium and large – and how this affects the amount of information displayed on the tile. For example a small SMS live tile gives you the number of unread messages. A large tile provides the number of unread messages and a quick preview of them.



    Microsoft has a page dedicated to announcements about upgrades in WP 7.8. If you have a Microsoft account you’ll be able to access the page here.


    Among other WP 7.8 highlights are updates about a new Start screen, new ways to share contacts and track data usage, enhancements to the camera used in the Nokia Lumia 900 and news about the current inventory of over 100K Windows Phone apps.

    Market research firm Strategy Analytics forecasts that worldwide smartphone shipments will have grown by 38% from one year ago. They also caution that the rate of growth might not be sustainable in the short term due to global economic troubles.


    Smartphone market growth expected at 38% in Q2 2012 4G LTE and Apple main catalysts


    The Strategy Analytics report did state that it expects smartphone shipments to bounce back later in the year. Both the Apple iPhone 5 and iPad 3 along couple with devices having 4G LTE connectivity should fuel new growth. Strategy Analytics called LTE “the industry’s most important segment” and predict that 4G LTE smartphone shipments will rise tenfold in 2012.

  • Fans all over the world have been bombarded with speculation about this major update to Apple’s mobile platform, and now we all have a preliminary look.  Last week, Apple finally revealed the details for its iOS 6 with the low-down on over 200 new features, services and user interface upgrades.


    What is Apple thinking with its iOS 6?


    Apple has less than three months to get iOS 6 ready for release.  Here’s the low-down on one of the first reviews.


    First Impressions


    The beta release is available to developers, getting the new code into the hands of those who produce the apps in the crowded App Store. This evaluation is based on testing with the iPhone 4S, so if you have a different mobile device, your results may be different.


    Two hundred tweaks may sound like a lot (and it is), but there are a few key additions, updates and changes with iOS 6 that deserve a closer look. We’ll highlight the biggest upcoming changes that could have even Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone loyalists thinking twice about Apple's iPhone.


    Siri


    Siri capability is added to the iPad 3 (but not older iPads or the iPhone 4 and earlier.) Siri has only been available on iPhone 4S until now.


    • Siri answers sports questions that go beyond just game scores including history, stats, player bios, and records without switching over to the browser.
    • Siri answers questions about movies like actors, directors, awards and movie stats, and shows status of premieres, reviews, trailers and tickets. It will bring up nearby listings and enable ticket purchases through Fandango.
    • Siri understands more languages Canadian English and French, Spanish, Italian, the varieties of German, Italian and French spoken in Switzerland, Korean, Mandarin, Cantonese. These are also supported in the satellite navigation app.
    • Siri finds the restaurant you are looking for and filters the results based on user reviews. It provides for detailed searches based on food type, location, outdoor, pool, price range, ratings, and more. (This feature is not available in every country.)
    •  Nine automakers (BMW, GM, Mercedes, Land Rover, Jaguar, Audi, Toyota, Chrysler and Honda) have promised to integrate Siri. Hitting the voice button in your car will activate Siri if your iPhone is connected to your vehicle’s infotainment system.
    • Siri launches apps by just saying their name.

    What is Apple thinking with its iOS 6?


    Facebook integration in Siri


    Twitter became integrated into iOS 5, and now Apple is doing the same with Facebook in iOS 6. Everything you can do now with Twitter, you'll be able to do with Facebook.


    • Use Siri to post Facebook updates and tweets.
    • With the link to Facebook you can update your contacts’ pictures, addresses, important dates, emails, phone numbers and websites. You will also get a new Facebook field with a shortcut to your contacts’ Facebook profile. It will load in the Safari browser, not the dedicated Facebook app.
    • All Facebook events will appear in the Calendar.
    • Facebook integration extends to the App Store and the iTunes Store. Whenever you tap on an app, song, movie, TV show, and more three tabs pop up: info, reviews and related.
    • Share photos on Facebook from inside the Camera or Photo apps.
    • Share addresses with a pin in Maps.

    In another blow to Google, there’s no Google+ integration. Then again, there's no Google+ integration in Android either…


    Apple Maps


    Google has been providing an Apple version of its Google Maps since iOS was born. But iOS 6 kicks Google Maps to the curb. While the Google version may still be available in the App Store, Apple’s iOS 6 Maps provided by TomTom will have the default position. Here are a few of the highlights:


    • iOS 6 Maps uses TomTom for all mapping and traffic data.
    • Siri connects to these maps, and turn-by-turn voice navigation is included for free.
    • You can access crowd-sourced traffic information for (almost) real-time traffic alerts.
    • 3D "Flyover" maps are available on the iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and the New iPad/iPad 3 (older models won't support the advanced graphics.). Zoom, tilt and rotate the landscape to explore 3D landmarks in real time.
    • Access local search and Yelp reviews.
    • Navigation even works in the lock screen mode and behind other apps. This is ideal for use in car mounts.
    • Offline mapping capability should be available in the coming weeks.

    PassBook


    Passbook is a single app that collects and intelligently displays boarding passes, movie tickets, retail coupons, and loyalty cards.


    • Any travel changes (like gate changes and fee differences) are displayed in Passbook in real-time as long as you have a data connection. This is a airline carrier partnership deal. So far the only airline to sign up is United. A lot more carriers will have to join to make this one worthwhile.
    • The location-aware app makes the right coupon available in the right place and at the right time.
    • The PassBook will report the balance on coupons and cards, let you check your ticket seats and can even show you relevant notifications (e.g. gate or terminal change for a flight).

    Safari browser


    The Safari browser has gotten a few minor updates:


    • It’s faster than it was on the iOS 5. Its benchmark scores for SunSpider, BrowserMark and HTML5test.com show significant improvement over iOS 5.1.1.
    • A full-screen view option is available from a dedicated button on the taskbar. It works only in landscape mode.
    • iCloud tab syncing is enabled, along with offline reading.
    • You can access to your multimedia content without exiting the browser.

    Email


    Good old email got some updates too:


    • Set up friends’ emails in a dedicated VIP mailbox, and it will appear highlighted in the regular inbox. Designate where you want to be notified of VIP emails (for example, put them on the lockscreen.)
    • Flag important emails and they’ll be placed in a Flagged mailbox.
    • Use different mail signatures for multiple email accounts.
    • Insert pictures or videos in emails just by tapping and holding on an empty space and accessing them from a pop-up menu.
    • The update button is now gone and there's a pull to refresh instead.

    Phone app


    Apple is adding some much needed calling features:


    • When you decline an incoming call, you can reply to it with a text message or set a callback reminder.
    • Use the Do Not Disturb setting to bypass calls and texts, except those from callers on your VIP list.
    • If the Repeated calls feature is activated a second call from the same contact within less than three minutes will not be silenced (it might be an emergency.)

    App Store and iTunes Store


    With iOS 6 Apple has updated the App Store and iTunes Store and content handling:


    • Featured pages have scrollable rows rather than lists.
    • The App Store won't prompt you to enter your password when you’re just updating apps.
    • You can see the change log in the Updates screen without opening the info screen.
    • After you buy or update apps you can continue browsing the store. You can also launch apps you've already installed from within the store.
    • The Game Center gets Facebook integration and supports challenges.

    FaceTime


    FaceTime for 3G is finally here, allowing FaceTime to work over cellular networks, not just Wi-Fi.


    • FaceTime now supports video chatting on data networks, but be warned; these chats run through around 3MB per minute and will chew through your LTE data plan in short order.
    • The unified FaceTime/iMessages ID lets you receive calls on an iPad using your phone number.
    • Other FaceTime improvements include updated Stores and system apps, new icons, and revised settings.

    What is Apple thinking with its iOS 6?


    Guided Access and Lost Mode


    Apple is working hard to bring iOS to people with disabilities through its Guided Access.


    • It helps students with disabilities remain on task and focused on content.
    • It allows a parent, teacher, or administrator to limit an iOS device to one app by disabling the Home button as well as restrict touch input on certain areas of the screen.
    • VoiceOver, a screen reader technology for blind and low-vision users, is now integrated with Maps, AssistiveTouch, and Zoom.
    • Guided Access could be useful as a kid- or test- mode. Loan your Apple device to your kids without being worried that they will access inappropriate content or change your settings and apps.

    Lost Mode is part of the former Find My iPhone service. If you lose your gadget, you can lock it remotely and send a message with your contact information. Lost Mode doesn’t have data wiping capability.


    Miscellaneous mentions


    Right inside the Photo app is a sub-social network for pictures called Shared Photo Stream. By choosing what pictures to share and which people to share them with, those you send them to will be able to like them and post comments.


    The Bluetooth toggle has more prominence with placement next to the Wi-Fi toggle.


    The Camera UI is now black.


    In the settings menu brightness is now in the wallpaper screen.


    In the auto brightness mode, your device will be in full control of the brightness and will move the slider above the toggle to show the currently selected setting.  You’ll be able to see exactly how bright the screen is, but you won’t be able to adjust it in auto-mode like you could in past iOS versions.


    The Settings and Clock apps have updated icons. The Clock app now allows you to access the iPod music library and assign any song as an alarm tone.


    Compatibility


    Not all Apple iPhone and iPad generations will get the upgrade. iOS 6 is compatible with iPhone 3GS, 4 and 4S; iPad 2 and 3; and the fourth-generation iPod Touch. The first iPad has been left behind.


    Siri access is expanded beyond the iPhone 4S, but only as far as iPad 3. The turn-by-turn navigation and the Flyover mode in Maps is only possible with the dual-core devices - iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iPad 3.


    Wrap up


    The iOS 6 changes will make a difference for every Apple device that it’s made for.


    The big deal is Maps. While much of Maps looks similar to Google Maps, it integrates 3D and voice navigation. The integration with Siri is most of what will make Apple’s Maps a winner with most users.


    iOS 6 won’t inspire a mob of new customers, but we’ll see if the new iPhone 5 package makes the iOS 6 greater than the sum of its parts.

  • LG ends tablet production
    Posted on June 26, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    By Aldo Panessidi


    LG Mobile announced that it will halt both time and investment in tablet development and instead concentrate their attention on making smartphones including the Optimus L7, Optimus 4G LTE and Gossip Pro 


    LG ends tablet production


    Ken Hong, an LG spokesman, couldn’t have made it any clearer when he told Bloomberg, “We’ve decided to put all new tablet development on the back burner for the time being in order to focus on smartphones.”


    LG launched the Optimus Pad LTE earlier this year, but hasn’t been able to make any inroads against Apple, Amazon and Samsung in the tablet market. The South Korean electronics manufacturer will try to turn around its smartphone business by concentrating on its Optimus line of Android devices. Hong also noted that the company is still interested in making phones using Microsoft’s Windows Phone software.

    Like Skype, Line provides free calls and messages all over the world, regardless of mobile network provider. Line is already being used in over 230 countries by 40 million people (18 million of these are in Japan).


    NHN Japan Releases New Windows (R) Phone Version of LINE, Free-Calling and Free-Messaging App


    This new version makes use of the unique Windows (R) Phone user-interface system, Metro UI, which increases user friendliness and promotes stress-free communication by arranging text for increased clarit.  It further introduces sideways menu scrolling for ease of access, a distinctive characteristic of Windows (R) Phone. Although the release of this version will feature the all-important messaging function, it will not include the free-calling function. NHN Japan plans to add this function in the near future.


    The Windows (R) Phone version is seen as a welcome addition to the current versions of LINE which are available on iPhone, Android, feature-phones and PCs as well as a browser version for smart-tablets. NHN Japan hopes to increase the strength of its mobile messenger service by making it available across all platforms and devices.


    Line is downloadable, but currently the app has the free calling capability disabled. The company is working on fixing the call problem, but the service can be used for texting.
