News today from industry analysts Gartner about the state of the mobile industry. Nokia is still the biggest hitter with a growth of 21% – selling 816 million devices. More and more sales in Western Europe and North America, where many sales are replacement handsets or upgrades, were driven purely by the style of the phones. Gartner states that customers “gave in to the charm of highly fashionable devices”.
Style, fashion, design – all key points to selling more handsets. Hopefully Smartphones like the iMate Smartflip will fulfill these points.
