Americans Bought Fewer Phones in Q2 V.J. | , 6:19 p.m. Aug. 19, 2008 2008-08-19

Mobile phones are definitely a necessity in our days, but many of use choose to use the same handset until it doesn’t function. This might not be the case for the U.S. but a recent study says that fewer mobile phones were sold in the country in Q2.



The study was conducted by the NPD Group and said that cellphone sales in the U.S. dropped 13 per cent in comparison with Q2 last year. NPD Group’s research shows that in this year‘s second quarter 28 million mobile phones were sold.



From a financial perspective this doesn’t mean a monetary catastrophe. In fact the report says that the total value of the market lowered only by per cent from Q2 last year. Its total profit is about $2.4 billion.



The reason for this is that new handsets are more expensive than last years terminals and earning, although decreased, didn’t mean too much. Handsets cost much because many of them incorporate the latest mobile technology. According to the study Motorola’s handsets are very popular in the U.S.
