The Essential Phone will soon be in the hands of customers who pre-ordered the device. And after the recent flood of up-close-and-personal photos of the phone, anticipation is building. Indeed, the Essential Phone is a beautiful device, as Business Insider immediately realized during our hands-on time with one of the first review units. The titanium and ceramic that’s used to clad the Phone helps make it stand out against even the gorgeous Samsung Galaxy S8.  Antonio Villas-Boas/Business Insider Yet, perhaps one of the most interesting...

Posted by on 10:32 pm in Mobile Design | 0 comments

Keyssa, a start-up backed by Tony Fadell, one of the fathers of Apple’s iPod, announced it is working with Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, Hon Hai Precision Industry Co (鴻海精密) and others on a new way for mobile phones to transfer large amounts of data without using wires or Wi-Fi connections.

A ‘bug’ that let a $500 password cracking box open up iPhones is patched as of iOS 11

Posted by on 9:33 pm in Mobility Strategy | 0 comments

A video posted to YouTube by users EverythingApplePro yesterday shows a small $500 box unlocking an iPhone 7 locked with a short passcode. The box works on all iPhone 7 and iPhone 7+ models, as well as some iPhone 6 and 6S models and, unless you’re willing to wait an incredible amount of time, only works in a small subset of edge cases. I did some poking around and Apple confirmed that the behavior that lets this box work will be patched out of the final version of iOS 11 that’s due this fall. It’s also patched under iOS 11 beta 4, if you’re...

Posted by on 9:33 pm in Mobile Design | 0 comments

During a recent outing to a fancy restaurant, Andy Rubin spotted an all-too-familiar tableau: a couple on what seemed to be a first date taking pictures of their food and then losing themselves in their smartphones for the next 10 minutes. Mr Rubin is partly responsible for this antisocial behavior; he helped create Android, which powers 85 percent of the world’s smartphones. Mr Rubin acknowledges the downsides to the smartphone revolution he helped unleash and says his new hardware company, Essential, is working on ways to solve the tendency...

Hands-On Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone: Beautiful Hardware But Too Many Unanswered Questions

Posted by on 8:52 pm in Mobile Design | 0 comments

Credit: Chad McClymonds Essential Phone With Android, Andy Rubin brought the world’s most pervasive mobile operating system to life. Now, Rubin is trying to shake up the Apple-Samsung mobile phone duopoly with the $700 Essential Phone. I’ve had the chance to play around with the phone for the last few days, and, while it’s a well-made phone, the big points of differentiation don’t appear completely fleshed out yet. The quality of the phone feels excellent. It’s wrapped in a titanium body with a ceramic back. The...

Anthony Karcz If only the warning sound was the refrain of “Urgent” by Foreigner Looks like there was one big feature that I (along with nearly everyone else) missed when I wrote up iOS 11 Public Beta 5 earlier this week. As reported by The Verge, the latest build brings with it some new functionality for the Emergency SOS feature. Way back in June, outlets started reporting that the latest version of iOS would have an Emergency SOS option where, when enabled, it would automatically call the appropriate emergency number for your...

Microsoft still hasn’t officially confirmed the existence of a Surface Phone however there have been several instances over the past year where employees at the company have stated...

The iPhone 7s may be bigger than the iPhone 7 in one surprising way

Posted by on 5:29 pm in Mobility Strategy | 0 comments

Although all the hype is building around the iPhone 8 right now, Apple’s actually slated to launch a trio of brand-new phones this fall. The iPhone 8 should be the device to have, provided that you’ve got MacBook money to burn on a smartphone. For those of us who only have one kidney to sell rather than two, Apple’s going to also release an iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, with the usual tick-tock upgrades over the iPhone 7. Normally, that means an identical physical design, but a new rumor suggests that the iPhone 7s will have one major...
