  • Video chat is certainly something that many users are going to be interested in when it finally launches. It has been on the horizon for quite some time, but a recent Tweet that was released by the Android team may have tipped us off about some new features that we can expect to see on Android 2.3.4, which looks as though it will support video chat through GMail at some point in the near future.

    The Tweet came from @GoogleNexus, who stated that they were watching a video call on their unlocked Samsung Nexus S Google, and described the video as having “impressive quality.” It looks as though Google will be moving its browser based video chat service on Android. This is a move that has long been speculated on, and will probably be unveiled during the upcoming Google I/O Conference.

    The conference is set to kick off on May 10th in San Francisco, and you can bet that the video chat announcement will be part of the ceremony. It isn't that surprising, especially with the popularity of video chat on iOS devices in recent months.

    Look for Google to address the issue more formally at some point in the future. Video chat is certainly something that many users have been waiting eagerly for, and the fact that they are finally getting around to releasing it for Android devices will be to the benefit of their users that will be able to upgrade as soon as the new upgrade is made available for their particular device.

    With many Android devices like unlocked Motorola ATRIX 4G Black AT&T including the front facing camera, it was clear that the video chat was coming at some point in the future, but it was never quite clear when users could expect it. Now that we are nearing the release of the GMail Video chat service, look for even more devices to include the front facing camera.

  • SugarSync Receives New Android App
    Posted on April 28, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    SugarSync is a service that has been compared to Dropbox for their similar features, and because it also serves as a storage and cloud solution for both personal computers and Macs. The service had not expanded to unlocked mobile phones, but recently received an Android application that should add some compatibility with mobile devices for existing users.

    The app will be completely free and works with many different versions of Android including Honeycomb. The app will allow for you to access your files and then upload them into the cloud, where you can then access them from another unit. The app is completely free at this point and the company has not announced plans to make it a paid service moving forward. You will be able to access your files while on the go and will also be able to upload files into the cloud from virtually anywhere.

    Remote file access is something that has become increasingly important in recent years. You will be able to secure an account with 5 gigabytes of storage completely for free. The service also has a number of very powerful photo features. You will be able to browse photos that are stored in SugarSync and will be able to be viewed in large or small format.

    You can also designate shared folders that you will be able to share with those that you are working on projects with. The service has been well reviewed thus far and the addition of an app should expand then umber of users that have turned to SugarSync, which appears to be a solid replacement app for DropBox. It has not become as large as DropBox yet, but you can bet that some users will enjoy how easy it is to use in comparison. SugarSync will likely also receive an iOS app for unlocked iPhone 4 at some point.

  • New Motorola XT316 Shown to FCC
    Posted on April 28, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The FCC has spent quite a bit of time in recent years dealing with many different handsets. A large majority of the devices that they deal with will never even make it to American stores. Most recently, the FCC was able to take a look at the unlocked Motorola cell phone (XT316). The paperwork for the device made its way online soon after the FCC had a look at the hand set. The device looks as though it will be an even smaller version of the Droid Pro, however this version will be specifically crafted for China.

    So far, there are not a lot of details that have been made available on the device. Those details that have made their way online have been relatively simple, such as the 2.8 inch screen and the full QWERTY keyboard.

    The device will likely only be available for 4G and 3G networks in China, and will not feature complete 3G connectivity in the United States. This will probably keep the phone from being picked up by any of the larger carriers, and could keep the phone from seeing any sort of US release at all. That means that it will likely be another device in the long list of phones that the FCC has looked at that will never see the light of day. You would think at a certain point they would stop wasting their time with phones that will probably never be released to the American public.

    Look for additional details about the Motorola XT 316 to be released at some point in the near future, regardless of whether the device will ever be given an American release date. Motorola has stayed mostly quiet about the device since news of it was first released and you can expect that to continue moving forward as well.

  • Anthony Booth New Mobilicity CCO
    Posted on April 27, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Mobilicity announced a significant change to their executive team earlierint he morning. Anthony booth will  now be operating with the company as their Chief Customer Officer and will oversee several operations that are already underway within the company. He will oversee the sales and marketing for the company and will have the responsibility ot pushing the brand and expanding their distribution operations.

    Before joining Mobilicity, Booth has been with various companies including Mars Canada as well as Procter and Gable. The move comes as a bit of a surprise, but Booth released a statement saying that he was excited to have the opportunity to work with Mobilicity and said that he believed that the opportunity was a “once in a lifetime” type of gig.

    “I’m thrilled to be part of the Mobilicity team,” he said in his statement, and went on to say that he thought that the company had quite a bit of growth ahead of them.

    Mobilicity is a company that has rapidly and aggressively expanded their network and services in the highly competitive Canadian market in recent years. Anthony Booth is considered to be a solid financial planner, and was highly praised in his time as a VP with Mars Canada as well as Procter and Gamble.

    Mobilicity, like many other Canadian providers, have lowered their rates and expanded their data offerings in users in recent months in an effort to stay ahead of the competition. With so many companies expanding their coverage zones, you can expect Mobilicity to do the same moving forward as well - now with a new Chief Customer Officer at the helm. The company also released a statement saying that they were glad to have Booth on board, and looked forward to seeing what he was able to bring to the table.

  • Amazon has finally responded to the lawsuit that was thrown their way by Apple in regards to their app store. The lawsuit was first filed last month, and stated that Amazon’s use of the term “Appstore” was an infringement on their “App Store” trademark. It had not been clear how Amazon regarded the lawsuit, but they made it clear in a response today that they felt that the app store lawsuit was one that was “baseless,.” as they described in their response.

    The app store allows customers to search through the available apps and purchase or download free apps quickly and easily. The Apple “App Store” for unlocked iPhone 4 has no doubt been around for much longer but Amazon claims that calling their application store an app store is more of a description of their services rather than an infringement on the trademarks of Apple.

    Amazon has been gaining ground with their app store, and has even reeled in some of the larger developers in recent years, including a few Angry Birds applications that were exclusively launched in the Amazon app store. The company has made it clear that they are not taking the lawsuit seriously, and instead look at it as a move by Apple to slow them down and place their focus on other areas.

    Amazon has made it clear that they intend on taking their app store seriously and pursuing a large, thriving selection of apps that will satisfy the users they are attempting to lure from the Apple App Store, which comes pre-installed on all iOS devices. Apple has not yet commented on the lawsuit that they launched last week and instead has been mostly silent about the issue. It will be interesting to see if they issue any statements in response to the response that was released by Amazon.

  • Have you hacked your unlocked iPhone 4 to allow yourself to tether your connection and connect other devices to your AT&T network connection? The information on how to do so was posted to several different hacking websites and applications were released. AT&T quickly sent out an alert to users reminding them that they will not be allowed to tether their phone without a tethering plan. Their tethering plan is quite expensive and their delivery of the less than subtle message shows their intent to not allow this practice to continue.

    They are currently offering a tethering plan for $45 per month that allows users to use up to four gigabytes of data through the tethering plan. Users who hacked their phones to allow tethering were getting the features for free, which is obviously something that AT&T did not want to allow

    AT&T confirmed that their message was completely legit and that the company meant to send out the text to the users that they had detected had hacked their phones and was making use of tethering features that they had not yet paid for. If you continue to tether your device without signing up for their plan, you will eventually have to pay for the data that you are using.

    Tethering through unofficial means will make you liable for the $45 charge that you would normally be given if you had signed up for the plan. It is not currently clear how the company is able to determine who is hacking their phones to allow tethering through unofficial means. The company has only stated that their network is able to determine the devices that connect to it, which is the data that they are using to find users who tether through unofficial means.

  • The new 10.1 inch version of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab will reportedly be available in Canada sometime during the late third quarter according to a number of recent reports. Samsung will reportedly skip over the seven inch tablet, and will release the newest version of the device in Canada for their first official release. As of right now, there are two different 10.1 tablets out there, a 16 GB and 32 GB version, but there is no word on what users can expect to see coming to Canada.

    The new tablet will run on the Android 3.0 Honeycomb software, and will have a 10.1 inch display that features a resolution of 800 x 1200. It will also have a 1 GHz dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, which is a popular processor among many different smart phones such as unlocked Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant,  that have been released in recent months. It will have an eight mega pixel camera that is capable of capturing videos up to 1080p HD. The front of the camera will have a 2 mega pixel front facing camera, as well as a 6860 mAh battery.

    In total, the device will weigh a total of 599 grams, which is actually not that much heavier than some of the more powerful smart phones that have been released - so that weight is pretty low for the most part.

    The Galaxy Tab will be one of the most anticipated tablets released in Canada this year. It has already had a successful run in the United States and is supposed to have a similar reception in Canada as well. It will certainly be interesting to see when they are able to get the device out. As of right now things are looking like it will probably be released late in the third quarter, which would fall in line with predictions from several analysts.

  • Just when we were getting used to the last wave of processors and the huge speeds that they delivered, Samsung looks as though they are going to be releasing dual core 2 GHz processors that will be available for the next wave of smart devices. They are looking to have the new processors released by the beginning of next year. The news was released without an official announcement from Samsung. The report did say that Samsung was not only going to be manufacturing the chips for their own devices, but would be manufacturing some 2 GHz offerings for other smart devices as well.

    They will be by far some of the fastest chips available when they are released. The speeds that will be achievable through the chips will certainly allow for better gaming, as well as more powerful apps and perhaps new features that have not been seen on phones such as unlocked Samsung i897 Captivate at this time. Next up, hopefully they will create a more advanced battery that makes it so you do not have to charge your phone once per day, but instead will be able to wait several weeks between charges.

    Hopefully Samsung will quickly make the new CPU processors available to other manufacturers soon after they are created. There is some speculation that Samsung will look to implement them in several of their own devices before they ever see the light of day with other company’s devices. It will be interesting to see how Samsung responds officially. At this point, they have not officially responded to the rumors, but at the same time have not denied anything which leads many to believe that the rumors of the 2 GHZ dual core processor are indeed true. It will be a huge step forward for smart devices.

  • The next version of the iPhone has received a lot of press despite the fact that the unlocked iPhone 4 was just released last year. It had been previously rumored that the phone would be released in the early goings of summer, but that rumor has been updated several times and at this point it is not completely clear when users can expect to be able to get their hands on the iPhone 5 - but that has not stopped analysts from trying to guess when the phone would be available. After all, it will have a huge impact on the mobile market whenever it is released and is easily the most anticipated smart phone that will be coming out this year - as nearly every iPhone has been.

    On analyst, Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo took a look at the supply chain process wand stated that he thinks that the Apple iPhone 5 will not be able to enter mass production until at least September. This is several months past the earliest of predictions and rumors but is still fairly easy when you look at how long ago the iPhone 4 was released.

    The iPhone 5 will serve as a small incremental update according to Ming-Chi, who said that the newest device will have the new A5 processor which was featured in the most recent iPad release, and will also have an eight mega pixel camera as well as a radio from Qualcomm like the one that was found on the iPhone

    It will be interesting to see how close he comes with his prediction. The iPhone 5 will create a wave within the Mobile industry, and other companies will probably want to be able to plan around the release of the device for releases of their own. The most recent prediction comes after Ming looked at the supply chains to get an idea of when it would be most feasible for the iPhone 5 to go into mass production.

  • The unlocked Acer (Iconia) has been a tablet that has mostly flown under the radar since it was first announced, but it will soon be making its way to Canadian subscribers who are looking for a tablet. They will be jumping straight into the tablet market with an Android 3.0 driven device, the Acer Iconia. The company has said that the estimated price for the device will be in line with other tablets that have been released, and will reportedly cost around $499.99.

    The specs for the upcoming device look as though they will be quite high powered. The tablet will come with a 10.1 inch touch screen display, along with the popular NVIDIA Tegra 2 Processor that will be used for several different upcoming tablets in the near future. The rear facing camera will be 5 mega pixels in terms of power while the front facing camera will be two mega pixels.

    This will just be the second Honeycomb tablet to make its way to Canada. If, by some miracle the LG G-Slate is released before it then it will be the third tablet released with Honeycomb in Canada. The device is already up for pre-order at a number of different websites if you would like to reserve your copy a little early.

    The Acer Iconia is a powerful tablet that should have plenty of processing power to run popular games and several applications at the same time utilizing the new Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system. The operating system was specifically designed for tablets and features several features that make a lot more sense with tablets than they do with smart devices. The reception of this device could potentially determine how quickly or whether or not Acer continues to delve into the tablet market. They have seen a reduction in shipments of PC’s as a result of the booming tablet market.
