How Phone Buying Is Changing
from the fashion-statement dept
Eric Lin has pulled together a variety of recent stories about mobile phones to suggest a significant change in how people buy mobile phones. He combines the news of Nokia’s troubles with Sony Ericsson’s success stories, along with anecdotal evidence of fancier, flashier mobile phones to suggest that people are no longer just buying the cheapest handset around – but are now taking style into account. This isn’t a huge surprise – as plenty of people have been pointing out for years that mobile phones were increasingly becoming fashion statements on their own.
