Cheap smartphones will go mainstream by 2017, study says

 Affordable cell mobile phones will make up the majority of sales by 2017 as consumer move towards entry-level gadgets, according to a study from research company In forma.

In forma said that 52 % of cell mobile phones will be price below $150, underscoring demand for the gadgets from the growing markets.

That represents a extraordinary move in the smart phone industry now, which is covered with super-smartphones costing $200 or greater. The Universe S III and iPhone 5 start at $200, but gadgets such as the Android Razr Maxx HD retail for $300, and the iPhone 5 quickly gets worse when adding in more storage space.  Last season, costly cell mobile phones, costing $250 or above, made up 83 % of the industry, according to Informa. That discuss could drop to 33 % by 2017.

"As the industry produces, the supply sequence will progressively be separated between two summer campement - the creators who will continue to present new functions and high-performance elements to the industry and supporters who will take this advancement to the store bought in later years," said Informa specialist Malik Saadi.

The move isn't great news for device producers who are used to creating high-end gadgets that produce significant returns. Many have already reduced their products to just a few better quality products a season, even as they battle to maintain business in a business progressively covered with Apple and New Samsung Gadgets. The company considers many will battle to evolve to the new industry characteristics.  Many customers don't actually see how costly a smart phone is thanks to financial assistance that cover up the actual price of the device. In exchange for that subsidy, however, are long-term agreements with great fees each month. As a result, more people are turning to pre-paid, but are learning that cell mobile phones aren't nearly as cheap.

The industry of the future will be progressively divided between high-end cell mobile phones that require heavy financial assistance, and lower end gadgets that price $150 without a contract.

That trend is already motivated by low-cost pre-paid providers such as MetroPCS, or Dash Nextel's Boost Cellular and Virgin mobile Cellular pre-paid hands. Htc, meanwhile, has tried to place smart phone functions such as touchscreen display screen into its low-end Asha line of mobile phones.
