Mobile Phones - UK - February 2014-Market Growth, Trends, Size and Forecast

New Market Research Report Added in MarketResearchReports.Biz Reports Database:Mobile Phones - UK - February 2014

This doesn’t necessarily preclude the project from succeeding; rather it means that purchase of non-modular phones will need to be reframed in the public consciousness as something environmentally wasteful. An ethical or moral premium will need to be attached to the purchase of a modular phone, to generate a pride in ownership that the phone’s purchaser would normally feel through public use of a handset valued for its aesthetics rather than its utility.
