Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 31, 2006
Online Cellular Sales Leader YouNeverCall.com talks about recent sales trends of colorful phones. Projections for 2006 show continues interest in colorful phone models -- especially the Pink Razr from Motorola.
"The color of a cell phone has become a dominant factor for cell phone consumers when deciding on a cell phone to buy", commented Brice Richards, VP of Strategy for YouNeverCall Inc., who's website http://www.younevercall.com is one of the top online cellular phone stores.
"A cell phone's color, is a key factor influencing cell phone buying choices. Color can even be a bigger factor than the particular features like Bluetooth, MP3 player or Camera. Cell phones are now accessories, and their color is key.
Recent sales numbers from YouNeverCall's popular online cell phone store, show increased sales of so-called 'colorful' cell phones. Sprint's Sanyo and Samsung models continue to demonstrate stong sales, with color variety seen as a major factor. Samsung has a popular line of free cell phones for Sprint (Sprint/Nextel) available in Red, Blue, Grey, Black, among other colors.
In the cellular industry's early days, many cell phones were black. At a later stage phone manufactures became a bit more daring and produced grey and silver phones. (Some have compared the trend to it's parallel in the car industry - in the beginning years all cars were black, later - colors were introduced by U.S. automobile manufacturers.)
Rim's Blackberry phones also started out all black to project a corporate image. Then RIM (Research in Motion) started introducing some Blue-colored Blackberry models, followed by the more conservative Grey-colored Blackberries known in the industry as the 7100 series - now we are seeing a combination of Black and Grey with the 8700c Blackberry phone.
With the explosive growth of the Cell phone market, manufacturers are always looking for ways to attract new buyers. New 'colorful' cell phone trends began in Europe and have recently exploded in the U.S. with the hyped-up market buzz surrounding the release of the new Motorola Blue and Pink Razr phones. It's clear that carriers are demanding cell phones in a variety of colors in order to meet customer color preferences.
At YouNeverCall's flagship website http://www.younevercall.com the Sanyo VI-2300 for Sprint is available Free in a variety of attractive colors. This Sprint phone comes in graphite-grey, blue-ice, Champagne Rose- pink, silver, forest-green and red and has shown remarkable sales.
YouNeverCall is also receiving a deluge of requests for the Motorola Pink Razr phones which will be available at the beginning of February on the site http://www.thecellspot.com. "We find that our corporate customers want the more traditional black cell phones preferring the Black Motorola Razr." says Richards. "The Cingular Black Razr continues to be a favorite, outselling the original silver-colored Razr V3 phone from Cingular and the T-Mobile Razr as well.
The real test will be the upcoming release of the Motorola V3 in Magenta -- this is the famous Pink Razr. Insiders believe that the Pink Razr will herald a new buying frenzy as the more business-like Razr begins to let down its hair a bit.
