    Q1 2012 mobile phone sales report isn’t good at all

    For the last few years no matter what happens mobile phone industry is rising and rising higher than ever. But for the first time the mobile phone industry suffered a rare setback. Gartner reports that overall worldwide sales of mobile phones came in at 419.1 million units. In 2011 the unit number was almost 428 million. That's a two percent drop compared to the same time period a year ago. They also mention that this happens for the first time after Q2 in 2009. But the smartphone market is growing better than ever. Gartner said that worldwide, 144.4 million smartphone units were sold, a 44.7 percent increase compared to the same period a year ago.

    There is only one explanation why this was happened. It happened due to lower than expected demand for devices in Asia and the Pacific. I have reason in mind for Asia Pacific falls. Due to the increase in USD rate some countries people are buying less foreign products in the past few months.
