Don't look further to buy your favorite cellphone!

This blog is dedicated to the all the cell phone lovers and to the readers who are eager to buy one in the near future, whether it be a swanky Nokia cellphone or an affordable and efficient Spice mobile handset. You will get all the information right here, friends!

With the ever-increasing consumer demand of cell phones coupled with the stupendous rise in the online retail industry in India, its selection and purchase has shifted to the online domain greatly.

Most of the e-commerce websites in India are eying the mobile industry and providing a wide assortment to the consumers through the many shopping portals cluttering the online retail scene.

Indian e-commerce websites are well-versed with the immense popularity of cellphones- both the pocket-friendly ones as well as their more expensive and lavish brethren. The main advantae of shopping for your fav cellphone online is the discounted prices that are available. Since these dealers are basically dealing in bulk, they act as virtual wholesalers to the prospective customer.

While a majority would either sell common and reliable market leaders like Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson etc., some others also include brands that are market entrants such as the likes of Spice, Fly etc. in order to cash in on the first mover advantage for unexplored territories.

Following is a brief analysis of the mobile section on some of the popular Indian e-commerce sites:

- Futurebazaar: Special gifts and offers, featured mobile sections, affordable mobiles in the budget mobile section and also lists the top 5 mobiles for its users.

- Indiaplaza: Brands – From the most famous to the lesser known brands are featured here. Combo offers with accessories and listing of the latest mobile phones. Lists the top seller phones along with the latest mobiles launched in the market.

- Retailsdirect: An online platform-cum-shopping portal where users can discuss among themselves before and after purchasing a product. From the cheapest to the most expensive handsets, available at discounted prices.

- Storeguru: It features 'hot deals' on the branded products with discounts and special offers. The only drawback is that very few brands are listed in the mobile section.

The aforesaid is a clear indication of the amount of stress which is being laid on the mobile industry and its usage in the targeting of the diverse consumer section through the wide assortment available at almost all the e-stores. Now, it's up to you to decide which special offer or deal suits you best to buy your favorite mobile handset at the most affordable price from the comfort of your home itself.

As I am located in the U.S. my knowledge is limited, but I know India is developing ten-fold when it comes to technology and such. How quickly are companies developing your wireless networks?

I'm sure AT&T is in there, who else?

You have shared some very useful information. Thanks a lot for that. The number of consumers in India are growing along with the economy. There is a huge market for online stuff. However the vendors need to make sure
that they treat the fledgling customer very well through secure and safe transactions,supply of assured products and after sales service. The online portals that can ensure these would emerge as market leaders.

I don't see any new changes in your blog richa, you need to enhance the visual quotient of your blog. It needs more pictures, graphics and other elements.
