BlackBerry is still trying to play catch up with the smart phone some nine years after Apple iPhone started the revolution. Last year it launched Priv, its first high-end smart phone powered by Android, but it was matched with a high-end price of $700, which priced it above arguably the most admired smartphone of them all, the Samsung Galaxy Edge and the iPhone 6s.
Even BlackBerry CEO John Chen admitted that introducing such a high ticket phone was not the best thing the struggling manufacturer could have done. Sales of the Priv were understandably muted and disappointing. So it’s not often these days that the name BlackBerry and ‘what’s hot’ go together in the same sentence. But now BlackBerry has launched its first touchscreen-only Android handset, in a bold bid to diversify its range of devices, and for now at least, it is causing something of a stir in the mobile phone market.
The new phone is called the BlackBerry DTEK50. It’s a smartphone – you can have any color as long as it’s black – which the company claims to offer improved security over rival Android devices, and, at $299 will cost significantly less than its previous handset, Priv.
It is the Canadian firm’s second Android handset after switching focus away from its struggling BB10 platform – for which many of the most popular apps such as Whatsapp have simply given up providing versions. One analyst has described the new phone as the “right move” but that the company still faced an “uphill battle” with devices. And unlike the Priv, the DTEK 50 does away with BlackBerry’s signature physical keyboard and opts for a full screen.
The company said it would go beyond selling the phone through carriers and offer the DTEK 50 through security resellers and other distributors as it angles for more business customers. While the Canadian carriers will sell the phone, in the US the DTEK 50 will be sold through Best Buy, B&H and Amazon.
The DTEK’s main claim to fame is as the most secure Android smartphone you can buy. It features a 5.2-inch scratch resistant display, runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and there’s a convenience key which you can map to your favorite app and much more. BlackBerry has hardened the OS on the DTEK50, and added a secure boot process to ensure that it is the most secure it can be.
The DTEK50 can make suggestions to improve your phone’s security as well as give you much more information about what each app is doing, and what social media your apps are accessing. The phone also has unique internal hardware, with its chips protected by cryptographic keys to prevent tampering and thwart any would be hackers. An important advantage if you are one of the many who has switched to mobile phone banking apps. It was recently reported that mobile phone banking apps now outstrip traditional visits to banks and online banking via PC combined. So for that reason, a truly secure mobile phone such as the DTEK50 could be well worth investigating.
The phone has 16GB of storage and 3GB of RAM with a MicroSD that can take up to 250GB of extra capacity. The phone has a 13 megapixel rear facing camera and an 8 megapixel front facing camera for selfies with geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, and panorama.
The BlackBerry DTEK50 phone is expected to be released August 8th, and only time will tell if BlackBerry has a winner on its hands for the first time in too long. New physical keyboard phones are also said to be in the pipeline.
We think of cellphones as being very much a 21st century invention. And there is no doubt they have become indispensable to our everyday lives, all around the world. Modern cellphones or smartphones as they have become known, are used as a means of instant communication, whether by phone, text, email, instant message, or Skype. For video gaming, for music, for photography, even for finding our way to the nearest take out at 2am in the morning.
As more apps are developed, they become more crucial to our everyday lives. But did you know that wireless technology has actually been around since the early 1900s? No? Then you need to arm yourself with our brief history of the cellphone.
Wireless Technology in the Early 1900’s
It all started with one Nathan B. Stubblefield in the year 1908. He was a self-described “practical farmer, fruit grower and electrician” and also an inventor who was granted a patent by the US government to develop a wireless telephone technology system. Fast forward to 1921, and the first use of a radio telephony service became available on first-class passenger trains on the Berlin-Hamburg route in Germany.

Meanwhile, not to be outdone, in the United States, the first radio receiver was created by the Galvin Manufacturing Company, and soon became known as the Walkie Talkie. The model was referred to as the Motorola SC-300. The Walkie Talkie was quickly adopted by police departments as it delivered a means of constant communication, even while the police were out patrolling the beat.
Mobile Phone Technology after World War 2
The first official “cellphones” although not as we know them today, were first used by the Swedish Police in 1946. They worked by means of connecting a hand-held phone to the central telephone network. These early cellphones were separate to two-way radio phones that were commonly used in cars and taxis as a means of portable communication. There was just one problem with these phones, they could only make 6 calls before the car’s battery was drained!
Modern cell phone technology closer to what we recognize today, started when the appropriately named D.H. Ring from Bell Labs created hexagonal cells for mobile phones in 1947. Later, another engineer from Bell Labs came up with the idea of cell towers that would transmit and receive signals in three directions instead of two. However, rather like aviation design, electronics and other technologies take decades to mature. For instance, the electronics that were used in the first real cell phones were first developed in the 1960’s. In 1950, radio phones were used by the US military for communication and civil services.
1947 Paper That First Described a Cell-Phone Network
Cellphone Development in The ’60s
The electronic parts and components that are used in today’s generation of cellphones were developed during the 1960’s. Yes, cellphone technology was already available in the 60s, however its use was only restricted because the cell areas were only base stations which covered a limited land area. During these times, calls could be made, but if the cellphone user traveled beyond the boundaries of the cell area, the signal got blocked or went dead. Of course that can still happen today but cellphones can cover a far wider area.
Cellphones in the 70’s and 80’s
In 1970, Amos Edward Joel, who also was another engineer at Bell Labs, developed the call handoff system. This technology facilitated phone calls from one area to another that would not be dropped. By 1971, AT&T, requested a public cellular phone service from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), but that request was only processed a decade later. The advent of analog cellphone service began in 1982, and this continued until 1990.
In 1983, Motorola unveiled the first truly portable cellular phone to the world. It was called the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X, also known as the Brick. This was they type of phone Michael Douglas used in the movie Wall Street. The FCC approved it in the United States. Motorola developed the technology for cellular phones for decades and this particular phone took 15 years to come on the market at a cost of over 100 million dollars.

Cellphones become smartphones – 2007 to present
Just prior to the new millennium in 1999, the first-ever fully-fledged Internet phone service was introduced by Japanese company NTT Docomo. The following year, mobile phone advertising first appeared in Finland, when a free SMS text service was launched, and was sponsored by advertisers. Cellular phones from the early 1990s are considered second generation (2G) and they were able to work on mobile phone systems such as GSM, IS-136 (TDMA), and IS-95 (CDMA). Digital mobile phone networks were in use in the United States in 1990 and in Europe by 1991.
In 2001, the pre-commercial 3G trial network was also launched by NTT Docomo, and soon after, Sony and Ericsson agreed to create a joint company, which was called Sony-Ericsson, for the development and manufacture of high-end cellphones.
Just as 3G became accepted worldwide, and phones were designed around the capabilities of the speed and services it could provide, along came 4G in 2011.
When we look back on the introduction of the Apple iPhone, one of the earliest smartphones in 2007, everyone hailed it as a complete revolution, enabling music, photography and instant messaging, yet all this was managed on 3G, and in comparison to today’s high speed 4G broadband access, today the first Apple iPhone would seem incredibly clunky, underpowered and slow.
With the introduction of 4G mobile broadband (short for 4th generation) in Korea as early as 2008, smartphones of today act as efficiently and effectively as laptop computers, while still remaining wireless. This allows mobile phone users to access the full internet just as they would on a computer without any decrease in speed or the dropping of any data. If you think back to early websites adapted for mobile, they were slow, prone to stalling and generally frustrating to deal with. In the last couple of years, apps have been developed for popular websites such as Facebook, Twitter and Amazon that actually work better and look better than their desktop based counterparts. For now, the 5G network is the fastest mobile broadband network available.
The technology behind the 4G network is either WiMax or Long Term Evolution (LTE). WiMax uses a broadband network over a wireless connection. LTE, on the other hand, transfers data using IP connections. Essentially 4G creates an IP address for every mobile device.
And what about the future of broadband transmission and advances in smartphone technology? There are great plans underway but we will leave that for another posting…
If you insist on Samsung quality but you don’t want to pay Samsung’s high-end phone prices, the entry level Galaxy Core Prime could be just the phone you’re looking for. It’s an all-plastic phone that manages to look and perform dependably above its weight. Its slim line good looks are inspired by some of Samsung’s bigger, more powerful phones, so while it is a budget model, it doesn’t perform like a budget phone.
The build quality is good, with smooth curves and a brushed metallic bezel and the battery is removable so you can add up to 128GB of storage via the microSD card slot that sits on top of the single micro SIM slot.
The phone runs on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor – a SnapDragon 410, with Adreno 306 graphics, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage (5.3GB is usable). In general use the phone performs at a good rate but for some heavier apps there can be slight delays when launched. At 4.5” inches, the WVGA screen is also smaller than some of the currently popular 5.5” phablet style phones, but it certainly makes up for lack of size with ease of portability as it could comfortably fit into a shirt pocket, so it’s perfect to carry around for summer months wearing just shirtsleeves.
The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime has 4G LTE data speeds so you can stream high-quality videos, video chat and share photos with friends. It runs on the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system with the TouchWiz interface to make navigating simple.
As far as picture power is concerned, the phone has a front facing 2MP camera for easy selfies and a higher quality 5MP camera on the back with Auto Focus and a rear LED flash.
Battery power is boosted when it’s in Ultra Power Saving Mode; the battery continues to power the phone even when it’s critically low. It works by turning most of your screens to black and white and shuts off nonessential apps, so your smartphone still works when you need it.
T-Mobile USA was selling the Galaxy Core Prime for cash for $139.99 or just $5.84 per month with no money down.
Unlock your Samsung Galaxy Core Prime (SM-G360T) with UnlockBase
You may want the phone, but not necessarily the service provider, but with UnlockBase, that’s not a problem. UnlockBase is the leading online remote unlock site, with the largest database of phones and service providers around the globe. You can unlock your Galaxy Core Prime quickly, easily and cost efficiently for $19.90 using the Mobile Device Unlock App, the Android official unlock for T-Mobile USA: https://www.unlockbase.com/phone-unlocking-service/tmobile-device-unlock-app-official-unlock/
Device Unlock is an Android app that allows you to request and apply a mobile device unlock directly from the device. This allows you to automatically apply Mobile Device Unlock to the device without using a manual code.

With its Super AMOLED display, the highly successful and value for money mid-range Samsung Galaxy J series offers quality and performance capabilities that would have been considered high-end even just two or three years ago. The J7, bigger brother to the J5, enables you to upgrade your photo-viewing, video-watching and gameplay sessions with rich, true-to-life color reproduction and an exceptional contrast ratio for deeper blacks.
The Samsung Galaxy J7, which was introduced a little earlier this year, features an immersive 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, a 1.7GHz Octa-Core Exynos 7870 SoC, with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, and a 3,300 mAh battery. MicroSD support is also included, as is LTE network connectivity. Running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, T-Mobile and MetroPCS, the two major service providers that stock the J7, have different marketing strategies to entice you to buy the phone, and both of them are tempting.
T-Mobile USA offers the Samsung Galaxy J7 for only $239.99, and comes with a second phone free provided you pay with a prepaid MasterCard credit card. While MetroPCS USA does not offer a free second phone but opts instead for a super low price for the J7 of just $179.00.
Whether you’re watching an HD streaming movie or reading a book, the Samsung Galaxy J7 is more involving thanks to the large 5.5″ HD Super AMOLED display. And while the 13MP main camera captures clearer photos, the 5MP front camera gives you fast and flattering selfies even in low light conditions. The 3,300 mAh battery has the power to keep up with your demands. The phone comes with in-built Ultra Data Saving which compresses data and restricts background apps from chewing up too much data, thereby supplying an unfailingly fast and cost efficient 4G experience.
Unlock the Samsung Galaxy J7 with UnlockBase

At UnlockBase we deal with more types of cellphones than people even know exist. We handle all the big name brands as well as several lesser known brands. We offer the largest database of cellphones and service providers on the web, and we advise hundreds of customers each and every day about all kinds of topics, from how to unlock their phone to how take care of their phone.
Here then is our expert advice on the best post-purchase care of your device when it comes to the all-important screen. You’ve just bought or signed up for the gleaming new cellphone, but after just five minutes of use the screen can easily become a smeary, sticky mess of bacteria and fingerprints. With an unprotected screen, after just a few weeks, hairline scratches can start to appear from those times the phone scraped your keys in your pocket or you placed your phone front side down. Then there’s the dust, or the damage from UV rays, or maybe the eye searing glare from the screen when your insomniac boss calls you at gone 2am to check on stuff he could have asked you during the day.
Since the glass screen is one of the most vulnerable parts of a costly cellphone it makes sense to protect it with a good quality screen protector. But before purchasing just any screen protector, consider what type of protection you need. If you use your phone mainly for business you might want to consider a screen that protects your privacy, or if you use it at home during your leisure time, you may simply need a screen protector to protect against scratches, dirt, and sticky fingerprints.
As with many modern developments that have since become household products, the United States military first used a similar transparent coating to protect helicopter blades and electronic displays from abrasive airborne particles in harsh environments. Screen protectors are made from a an extremely thin clear plastic material that covers the screen of your phone so perfectly that users often do not even realize they have a screen protector on their phone. In the early days, screen protectors could be rather fiddly as they had to be trimmed to size, but today’s versions come pre-trimmed and punched to fit a wide range of cellular devices. Here are 6 top reasons you should put a screen protector on your phone.
- Screen Protector For Better Privacy
With a privacy screen protector prying eyes are unable to read your private data when out in public. That’s because the information on your phone is visible only to you as you are directly in front of the screen looking straight at it. When the phone is tilted at an angle, however, the contents of the screen become masked, keeping electronic data confidential and blocking the view from nosey neighbors in the subway or on the coach.
- Screen Protector As A Handy Mirror
Need to check your appearance or freshen up before an important meeting? When the phone’s screen is turned off, the screen protector creates a mirror-like finish if you choose a reflective style screen protector. But once in use, all you see is the screen of the phone.
- Screen Protector To Reduce Glare
Anti – glare screen protectors use a matte finishing coat and diffusion thereby breaking up the reflected light that is given off the screen’s surface. An anti-glare protector reduces eye strain and avoids you having to squint due to the harsh glare. They also improve visibility outdoors or in brightly lit conditions.
- Screen Protector To Resist Fingerprints
With a fingerprint resistant screen protector, screens stay clean looking without having to constantly clean them, at the same time eliminating the use of harsh cleaning agents that can damage the screen’s surface and bright glossy finish.
- Screen Protector To Guard Against Bacteria
Constantly touching the screen surface with your fingers is going to create mold, while climactic conditions can create mildew that causes stains, odors, and other problems. A specially formulated coating on an anti-bacterial screen protector kills over 99 percent of common bacteria by preventing its growth and transmission. The perfect choice for those working in hospitals, schools, and other public places where bacteria can breed and where cleanliness is of prime importance.
- Screen Protector To Prevent UV Damage
Anti-reflective (AR) screen protectors offer UV and glare protection by filtering out UVB rays while eliminating glare from sunlight thereby optimizing the screen’s readability with minimal eyestrain.
One effective way to beat your competition is to buy them. This seems to be the strategy of Australian born USA based entrepreneur John Milton, CEO of UnlockBase, the largest cellphone unlocking site on the web. In the past month he has bought gsmliberty.net and now his latest acquisition is Unlocking.com.
Unlocking.com was founded by Irish entrepreneur John McLaughlin in 2002, and was originally known as uniquephones.com. The site was subsequently sold in May 2011 to Vietnam born, Australia based Nguyen Thuy Hoang. Mr. McLaughlin was among the first site owners to unlock Apple iPhones in 2007. Mr. Hoang has since diversified and has the exclusive right to sell MBAs from the UK in a number of Asian cities. Hoang bought the cellphone unlock site in 2011 but admits he struggled to make his investment profitable due to the complexity and ever evolving nature of the cellphone unlock industry.
“Make no mistake, cellphone unlocking is a tough and fast moving business” explains Mr. Milton. “If you’re not right on top of what you are doing it simply won’t work for you. At UnlockBase we pride ourselves on having some of the best reverse engineers in the business as well as a fast and responsive customer service that is open 24/7 365 days a year, always with a human being present to help and quickly resolve problems.”
Unlocking.com started out as a small project to allow users to “modify” their handsets. The site created tools to allow customers to change fonts, edit menu text, and change default clipart on their handsets for free. They then reverse engineered any Nokia handsets they could find. During this time the owners discovered all sorts of hidden data on the hand sets, including how they could be unlocked. In the winter of 2002 Unlocking.com was the first company in the world to offer phone unlock codes online. Within a few weeks the site was unlocking 8,000 handsets per hour, all for free. They only began charging users for unlocking in October 2004 and in the summer of 2006 they started to expand beyond Nokia.
Today Unlocking.com enjoys global reach aided by numerous online publications. The site has been featured in Google News, The Irish News, The Washington Post, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal as well as Polish, Norwegian and Austrian newspapers and magazines. This has resulted in an impressive 4 million unlock codes delivered to customers in 165 countries. The site supports several handsets from over 750 carriers worldwide.
John Milton indicated his potential interest in purchase Unlocking.com began as early 2013. Eventually Mr. Hoang reached the decision to sell after some three years and Mr. Milton managed to acquire it for a quarter of what Hoang bought it for 5 years earlier.
“We will now absorb the Unlocking.com database into our own.” said Mr. Milton. “As with gsmliberty.net, we anticipate unlocking.com customers will be delighted with the service we can offer. We like to be competitively priced, quick to react, versatile and offer what we believe is the largest database of phones and service providers anywhere on the net. I admit it is hard for some smaller sites to compete with our product offering – but we have been doing this a long time – fully 15 years.”
UnlockBase operates worldwide and frequently receives cellphone unlock requests from countries as small as Kiribati, or as wealthy as Kuwait. To assist customers, the site offers a full suite of online paying services. This is of great importance where customers live in countries without easy access to credit or debit cards.
This is an oldie but goodie from Sony Xperia, and was originally released in the United States in October 2014. Yes, in cellphone terms that’s an ice age ago, but the Sony Xperia Z3 remains a popular phone to unlock, and a fast seller on eBay and other auctions sites.
The Xperia Z3 hails the entry for Sony of design aesthetics such as a curved bezel. Like its predecessors, the Xperia Z3’s design consists of a metal frame with a glass backing; with the metal frame being rounded, while the device itself is slightly slimmer than the earlier Z2. Equipped with a near phablet sized 5.2” FHD screen, the Sony Xperia Z3 carries slightly higher IP ratings for water and dust-proofing than the Z2. With a 1080p display and a density of 424 ppi, it also features Sony’s “Triluminos” technology.
Incorporating years of Sony camera expertise, the Xperia Z3 includes Cyber-shot and Handycam technologies for bright, crisp, and super sharp photography. The rear facing camera is a mighty 20.7 Megapixels with a Sony Exmor RS image sensor, along with improvements to “SteadyShot” and “Intelligent Active” modes. It also has ISO 12800 sensitivity, enabling you to capture moments in low light.
The phone comes with a 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 system-on-chip with 3 GB of RAM, with Google Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). The Z3 includes a non-removable 3100 mAh battery with up to two days of battery life. The phone runs on a single nano sim card upgradeable to 128GB via the microSD slot.
Unlock your Sony Xperia Z3 with UnlockBase
At the time of its release in the fall of 2014, the phone was compared favorably with the Samsung S4. The phone was on the market offered by T-Mobile in black, and some of these phones are still locked with an RSU App. If this is not what you want and you are keen to get rid of it, UnlockBase can help.
With the largest database on the web for phones and service providers, UnlockBase will not be beaten on price. For just $29.90 we can unlock and free up your Sony Xperia X3 in less than 24 Hours using the official Android Official Unlock for T-Mobile USA.

UB Software Ltd, owners of UnlockBase.com, one of the fastest growing remote cellphone unlock providers on the internet, has just acquired GsmLiberty.net. Founded in 2004, Delaware USA based gsmliberty.net offers a remote unlock GSM service.

As with UnlockBase, GSMLiberty offers a solution to phone users wishing to break out of contracts with service providers.
Speaking of his decision to purchase the site, CEO of UB Software, Australia born, Caribbean based Mr. John Milton said: “We view the purchase of gsmliberty.net as exactly the right purchase for us at this time.

We operate around the clock every day of the year, and we will not be beaten on price. This new acquisition will take our business to the next level in terms of scale and size.”
