San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 7, 2007
Online wireless retailer LetsTalk.com has announced the hottest selling cell phones for 2006. Six out of the top ten selling phones have music phone capabilities that allow for download and playing music (MP3, and/or Apple's AAC, Windows WMA files), signaling a significant increase in music content functionality.
The best selling phones of 2006 are:
Motorola RAZR V3
Kyocera KX16 Candid
Sony Ericsson Z520a
Motorola RAZR V3m mutlimedia phone
"The current mobile music trend is similar to the way camera phones burst onto the scene a few years ago," said Delly Tamer, founder and CEO of LetsTalk.com. "At first, cell phones with specialized functionality drive the high-end market, but eventually, many of the phones incorporate those features and offer them at more affordable prices, driving greater adoption."
In fact, according to a May, 2006 IDC report entitled "U.S. Wireless Music 2006-2010 Forecast and Analysis", IDC predicted an optimistic future for mobile music storefronts: "OTA (over the air) mobile music storefronts are emerging as one of the most important new channels for fans to discover, purchase, and enjoy full-track music and related content…IDC's research suggests that the number of wireless full-track purchasers should eclipse the number of online music service users by year-end 2008."
