Comments on: Worldwide Mobile Phone Market Grows 22%

The worldwide mobile phone market grew 21.7% in the first quarter of 2010 (1Q10), a strong rebound from the market contraction in Q1 2009. Growth was fuelled by increased demand for converged mobile devices, more commonly known as smartphones, and the global economic recovery. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Mobile Phone Tracker, vendors shipped 294.9 million units in the first quarter of 2010 compared to 242.4 million units in the first quarter of 2009.

Converged mobile devices, which allow consumers and business people to trade wireless e-mails for example, have become increasingly popular as a wider and more powerful array of devices have become available. The device class and a recovering traditional mobile phone category helped the market avoid a repeat of 1Q09, when the market declined 16.6% in the midst of the global economic recession.

More electricity?

e_tellurian @ 5/6/2010 11:56:57 AM # Q
Will creating more electricity help the market grow more? Are their places on our (you, me , us) planet where people may choose a mobile phone and related technology but either do not have enough electricity or money? Could solar jobs help create the money while also offering electricity for more choices?

Any thoughts?

We (you, me ,us) are very fortunate to have the freedom to innovate. Such choices can create e-motion technology, to make electricity, that can power devices such as mobile phones and we-com technology. The planet has infinite sun and many people can walk or exercise to make electricity. E-motion can show future generations how their daily physical activity can make energy to help power their choices. Transforming food into electrical energy requires that there is enough food to make such energy. It seems impoverished regions lack food, an income and electricity. How can innovation help resolve some of these issues?

Any thoughts?
