Mobile phone used first by businesses and people with special needs to communicate because it was rather expensive, then it started to spread between normal people who just paid a lot of money at that time to get a network simcard and the bulky handset, just couple of years later communication devices got cheaper and the technology is not monopolized anymore.
Maybe more than 100 of vendors are now selling in this market. The demand is high and will remain as we started to see teenagers of 10 years old or younger owns a cutting edge high-tech mobile phone that plays mp3 ringtones, videos or even with a WIFI built-in antennas for wireless connections.
The new venture is cell phone content:
Although all kind of cell phone content is now on high demand but we will be focusing more on ringtones in this article today.
The additional feature that allows us to assign different ringtones to friends, coworkers and family is a nice feature and obviously that's the main reason behind the new trend of owning many ringtones on your phone. This trend between teenagers opened up a huge demand for ringtones as each teenage has his/her style ring tones assigned for each individual in the contact list but also recent researches and surveys showed ridiculous huge numbers of ringtones downloaded by all ages.
Accordingly, the market got a boost due to this feature and this industry is not only growing due to teenage demand on ringtones, it's also due to the new technological advancement of cellphones and the volume of storage of these phones. not so long ago the Real Tones got to mobile phones and and now its almost the only ringtones in demand and actually downloading ringtones via the web now applies for real tones only, simply because it gives a REAL sense of high tech gadget. Real tone ringtones downloaded more often are sound tracks, classics soft music or a well known band music.
Many Reasons why people buy new ringtones but mainly its a way to cut daily routine and to customize their own cellphone to catch up with new hits. Teens also have the tendency to compete and show off ringtones to each other.
But lets face it, isn't it really boring to keep your mobile default tones used over and over again and every time your phone rings?
As a result of this high demand on ringtones, suppliers started to exploit the market with many different web application which provide ringtone files to download. Some providers tease with a free trial period to drag customers to their services then charge on later downloads, others finds it easier to joint venture with carriers to bring an easy web application that download files right to the phone over the network via WAP or GPRS then charge the subscriber bill for each Kilobyte downloaded.
However, it's obvious that almost all teenagers are obsessed with high tech stuff but the technical knowledge varies between them and due to the fact that ringtone files sometimes doesn't match all types of mobile phone therefore, some mobile content companies programmed a web application that provide a converter of any music file such as mp3 to a ringtone fbe compatible with the client mobile model.
