Growing Trends of the Mobile Phone Industry
By Neil Day
The ever-changing mobile communications industry is again transforming consumer
perception of telephony on-the-move. We’ve come a long way since the 80’s "brick
like" model that gave us the freedom to move away from dingy payphones. In fact,
mobile phones today serve a completely new purpose. No longer is it solely about
the need to contact a friend, colleague or family member at any time or place.
What reaches out to the majority of consumers today is the uniqueness of a
handset as mobile technology becomes fashion accessory. Constant advancements in
technologies ensure we’re spoilt for choice, with the capacity to personalise
almost every aspect of a mobile phone.
Consumers have been groomed to demand an increasingly high standard of
functionality in their mobile phones. The good news for mobile phone suppliers
is that this ensures handset replacement is rapid, as research and development
evolves the phone into a personal organiser, music player, camera and mobile
entertainment centre. We want to enjoy games, video clips and music from our
phones and the mobile music industry in particular is going from strength to
strength. As a result mobile phone giants, such as Sony Ericsson, are exploiting
demand with the imminent release of the W800i, an advanced walkman phone with CD
ripping software http://www.sonyericsson.com.
It will be interesting to see how such sophisticated phone models will compete
against the competitive and fashion-conscious portable MP3 player market.
Although products such as Apple’s iPod have taken off significantly and seem to
be in everyone’s pocket, three years since the launch of Apple’s high profile
MP3 player, is the Californian firm facing competition from an increasing number
of industry sectors? Sceptics believe the latest addition from the Apple team,
the iPod shuffle, is a disappointment, so will consumers look elsewhere for
Image is a crucial factor that mobile phone providers should take into
consideration. Consumers are concerned with the way in which a product can
reflect their personal identity. Therefore the design of a mobile phone is
important. Phones that look the part are highly favoured. As a result, mobile
phones now come in all shapes, sizes and colours. Some companies, who want to
encourage consumer engagement at an early age, have extended their marketing
campaigns to include targeting children with brightly coloured mobiles featuring
flashing lights http://fireflymobile.com.
If this was not enough, many consumers go to extensive lengths to find the most
up-to-date ringtones and screensavers. Consequently, a myriad of websites now
exist specifically to cater for this growing market. Examples include 1st Choice
Ringtones (http://www.1st-choice-ringtones.co.uk) and Mobile Ringtonez http://www.mobileringtonez.com."
Modern consumers are no longer satisfied with the traditional "ring ring".
Downloadable tones can range from classical music to the latest chart toppers.
The public have generally responded positively to such a vast selection, with
the exception of the "crazy frog" which is the first ringtone to make it into
the UK singles chart (and receive several hundred complaints) due to a very
aggressive television advertising campaign. The kids apparently love it, but not
everyone is happy!
The mobile phone industry is certain to continue evolving, with some research
suggesting that one day phones will take the place of credit cards and the
remote control. The innovation and level of competition in the mobile music and
mobile phone markets can only mean greater choice and lower competitive prices,
so sit back and look forward to the exciting surprises the key players in this
industry have to offer us!
