Pyramid Research Analyzes Low-Cost Smartphone Strategies in Upcoming Webinar

BOSTON, Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ The next generation of smartphone users will be coming from middle and lower segment users who are much more price and value-sensitive customers. This means smartphones must become more affordable, an area where mobile operators can have an important role, according to Stela Bokun, Senior Analyst and Presenter of Pyramid's upcoming webinar: Low-Cost Smartphones: How Own-brand Strategies Strengthen Operator Market Influence.

Attendees will also learn specifics about operator own-branded smartphone strategies in Latin America.

"Smartphone prices are still a barrier of wider adoption in many emerging markets leaving room for mobile operators to get more involved in achieving more affordable prices," says Bokun. This involvement is essential, as it provides the scale needed for any investment in lower-priced smartphones to succeed. The viability of this business depends on large quantities of devices being sold. At the same time, mobile operators' interest in lower-cost smartphones is not necessarily to make a business out of selling devices but to sell the mobile data services they enable, she notes. They are thus more prepared to support the slim margins that these devices provide than are solo handset vendors entering this space.
