Premium Verizon Wireless retailer focused on helping consumers build home technology ecosystems.

We’ve set out to deliver a comprehensive set of products and services that help our customers understand and take advantage of blurring lines between our devices.

Cellular Sales, the nation’s largest premium Verizon Wireless retailer, has become the one-stop shop for consumers looking to construct a home technology ecosystem, as evidenced by the company’s exponential growth in tablet sales.

Cellular Sales has seen firsthand the rise in the popularity of tablets as customer’s use mobile devices to serve as the anchor of their household’s tech ecosystem. During the holiday shopping season of 2013, the Verizon Wireless retailer saw its tablet sales increase by more than 300 percent compared to the same period in the previous year.

“We’ve experienced exponential growth in tablet sales as people begin using tablets to replace or supplement other devices like computers and TVs,” said James “JT” Thome, chief operating officer for Cellular Sales. “Mobile devices continue to grow in popularity as they perform more of the functions of other devices.”

The company also recently announced deals with DirecTV and mobile accessory maker Belkin to expand its product offerings. Cellular Sales will now sell Belkin charging products, along with Belkin’s smart outlet, the Wemo, as well as DirecTV services at all of its nearly 560 stores across the U.S. Recognizing consumer demand to integrate technology into many areas of daily life, Cellular Sales is the go-to resource when designing a personalized, digital ecosystem.

“We’ve set out to deliver a comprehensive set of products and services that help our customers understand and take advantage of blurring lines between our devices,” Thome said. “And instead of bouncing from retailer to retailer for a mobile phone, home internet service, home telephone service, cable or satellite television, and wireless hotspots, we want customers to come to us and see the big picture.”

4G/LTE speeds allow streaming video at a higher quality than ever before. Now DirecTV is taking advantage of those increased speeds with DirecTV GenieGo, which allows subscribers to view programs they’ve pre-recorded on smartphones, tablets, or computers.

“We’re seeing more and more consumers embrace video news and entertainment as part of their mobile technology ecosystem,” said Thome. “Cellular Sales is focused on providing expertise and guidance to all our customers, as mobile technology and entertainment continue to become more integrated.”
