Good Sales for Wireless Networks Smartphones

In today's difficult economy, people are still spending a lot for smartphones, even if sales are expected to fall for cellphones.

Sales of BlackBerrys, iPhones and other smartphone models are rising smartly and are projected to increase 25 percent this year, according to Gartner, a research business.

That is certainly a message the wireless industry would like to reinforce. “Smartphones are seen as essential to be productive in a mobile society,” said David Christopher, chief marketing officer at AT&T’s wireless division.

The smartphone wave, industry analysts say, should continue to build. There is ample room for gains because, smartphone sales will still account for only a quarter of total cellphone shipments in the United States this year. And along with the Palm Pre, many new smartphone handset and software offerings are coming this year, from Apple, R.I.M., Nokia, Microsoft, Google and others.

However some experts complain that there’s a big gap between the services offered by wireless carriers and what’s available on consumer desktops. AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile offer little, if anything, beyond address book syncing.
