One thought on “First signs of a mobile slowdown?”

  1. I thought the slow down was intentional because the carriers were driving demand faster than they could expand the networks. So they’ve back off to collect themselves.

    But here is a question I’ve yet to see answered, How is it that HS mfgs are able to sell devices into markets (ie. BRIC – Brazil, Russia, India, China) that have very low per cap GDP and make any money without being subsidized by profits from 1st world nations?

    This strikes me as another manifestation of the ‘drug’ pill costs debate. American carriers should be demanding the ‘China Price’ on handsets, and then past the savings on to the consumer.
