Global Cell Phone Sales Drop For The First Time Since 2009

In market-deflation news it looks like the fever dream that is the current cell phone market has finally broken a sweat. Tom's Hardware reports that in 2012 global cell phone sales dropped for the first time since 2009. 


The statistics are a little tricky as research firm Gartner lumps all phones into the cell phone category then continues to segregate this category by smart phone, feature phone, etc. Smart phones themselves actually saw a massive rise in popularity last year, however the market as a whole did lose a little steam. Do not panic, it is entirely natural for such a market to lose traction at some point; some manufacturers may be feeling the heat a little bit however...

Don't forget here at the Cell Phone Doctor we repair phonesbuy used phones and even sell used phones at bargain prices.
