Business Class Smartphones

5/15/09

US Smartphone sales performed exceedingly well from Q308-Q109; how? Manufacturers partnered with Carriers to offer handsets at bare bottom prices to meet consumers’ budgets; profits come from the data plan.

If your business needs to upgrade its smartphone inventory or begin using them to leverage time and work, Q209 sets a precedent for business class smart phones at $50-$200; a two year commitment to airtime is typical. I’ve used many of these devices already; pick the device and carrier that fits your needs.
