Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) November 17, 2005
Wirefly (http://www.wirefly.com), an online leader in one-stop comparison shopping for cell phones and wireless service plans, today released its current list of best-selling cell phones. Of the 10 most popular phones going into the holiday shopping season, the top 7 are camera phones.
"Camera phones enjoyed enormous uptake when they started being offered for free," explained Brian Westrick, President of Wirefly.
The ever-popular Motorola RAZR camera phones for T-Mobile and Cingular are offered free after rebate and with service activation. They continue to be Wirefly's hottest sellers. In addition to the RAZR, the #1 best-selling phones for each of the major carriers -- Alltel Wireless, Cingular Wireless, Nextel, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless -- all feature built-in cameras as well.
Currently, Wirefly's most popular cell phones are:
1. Motorola RAZR V3 (Camera Phone)
2. Motorola E815 (Video and Camera Phone)
3. Samsung PM-A740 (Camera Phone)
4. Motorola V330 (Video and Camera Phone)
5. Audiovox 8910 (Camera Phone)
6. Motorola V220 (Camera Phone)
7. Motorola i850 (Camera Phone)
8. Motorola i710
9. Motorola V188
10. Motorola V260
"It used to be that print-quality camera phones were very expensive. That limited their appeal," added Westrick. "Heading into this holiday season, competition has heated up, and we're now able to offer customers free camera-equipped cell phones upon activation with just about any plan, including Verizon Wireless, Cingular T-Mobile, Sprint/Nextel and others. That magic price was the key to camera phones taking off like they have."
