There is no question regarding the ‘Mobile World’, which is existing currently. Yes, everybody owns a mobile phone, be it for any purpose! It has become a need, rather than a want. Of course in countries like India, which has already got huge market for telecommunication industry sector, the desire for mobile phones is growing crazy with every new launch of the mobile models. This is majorly because the country has got market for both local and international telecommunication players.

The local players like, Airtel, Aircel, and Reliance Telecommunications, etc… are emerging with new ideas on mobile phones, every year. Recently, the subsidiary unit of Aircel has come up with the ‘Beetel’ mobile phones, launched with a huge network of consisting of 400 service units in the country. Thus the local players have portrayed that they are successful in launching 2G, 3G phones, smart phones and high end business models, like ‘Blackberry’, besides the mandatory successful basic models. Further, the international players like, Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, and Sony Ericsson, etc… are constantly rocking the mobile industry with their models.
