Share Article

AmericanCell reports that cell phones and especially multimedia internet-capable cell phones are quickly becoming the most popualr item on many people's Christmas and Hannukah Shopping List.

The marketing team at AmericanCell (, a leading online cell phone store, reports results of a study that shows that a whopping 43% of 18-30 year olds surveyed list a new cell phone as one of the top three on their wish list for this holiday season. This number is up from only 13% just two years ago. Experts agree that the rise is due to the evolution in cell phone technology from a simple mobile telephone apparatus to a mobile information-entertainment device. For the cell phone industry this has equaled a remarkable surge in sales.

"Usually sales are slow at this time of year. It seems like Christmas season came early," remarked Stela Samori, Sales and Marketing Director for American Cell, upon reports of the dramatic rise in sales since the summer. These days a cell phone is much more than its name would tell you. Combining data, video and voice communications, the cellular phone has become the latest "it" item. "We've lowered our prices in anticipation of the holiday rush, but the surge in sales is beyond our expectations."

One cell phone that continues to make its mark on the industry in this regard is the Motorola Razr. Outlasting, by far, the typical lifespan of cell phone popularity, the Razr is hotter than ever! Samori adds, "Sales for the Razr, which is carried by (major carriers) Cingular, Verizon and T-Mobile, have been through the roof. The Motorola Razr is packed with the audio/video features people are looking for like digital camera, video capture, and streaming multimedia support." With the attraction that the consumer has to the sleek Razr design in an assortment of colors, this gadget, along with the newer KRZR, is on top of many a list!

Even the folks at BlackBerry have joined the 'infotainment' bandwagon with their new, hot-selling BlackBerry Pearl. Blackberry has fused the mobile-office smartphone functions that executives demand, with the full-range of multimedia functions of the trendy 'music phones', in a super-slim, stylish casing. All this, while still being smallest of its class, has made the BlackBerry Pearl a very attractive cell phone. Other cell phones on Santa's list are the Sony Ericsson W810i Walkman Phone and the Samsung D807, both for Cingular, the LG Chocolate for Verizon, and the Samsung A900m for Sprint.

About AmericanCell

AmericanCell, launched in 2004, is a leading family-owned, online cell phone store. They began by focusing on popular PDA phones like the T-Mobile Sidekick and Palm Treo cell phones. In those early days they handled all of the orders themselves, answering every phone call and personally shipping out every phone. Since 2005 their order volumes had become so overwhelming that they had to become a bigger company - with separate departments for activations, shipping, and customer service. They are able to keep their costs down and pass the savings on to their customers with special pricing because they don't have the overhead of a physical store and warehouse.
