Mobile Phones: Samsung Mobile Phones Dominate Pre-Pay Market

Posted 17th December 2009.

As we sit just over a week away from the Christmas period, Samsung mobile phones appear to be enjoying a festive bonus at the top of the pre-pay mobile phone market. The Samsung Tocco Lite has moved to the top of the charts according to tracker information released by retailers and compiled by Mobile.

Interestingly, nearly 50% of the pre-pay mobile phones in the top 20 are Samsung mobile phones, while Nokias classic feature phone range sits in 2nd and 3rd position with the Nokia 2330C and the Nokia 1661 respectively.

The Samsung Tocco Lite has been a revelation in the smartphone market. Its playful yet pioneering design has caught the imagination of a number of casual mobile phone users, with its sleek and sophisticated design complementing a broad range of mobile widgets and applications that make everyday usage anything but a chore.

Surprisingly the Samsung Tocco Lite also ranked very highly in the contract mobile phone market, second only to the BlackBerry Curve 8520. BlackBerrys market position as a smartphone specialist is secured with three handsets in the top 10 of the contract mobile phone sales list.

Nevertheless, these latest figures did not include the sales of the Apple iPhone 3GS and other second generation Apple iPhones. O2 has reported that it has seen an increase in the sale of iPhone 3GS handsets following Oranges announcement that it had agreed an exclusive deal to seal the device back in November.

Although generally pre-pay mobile phones rule the roost at Christmas time, reports suggest that contract mobile phones and mobile phone accessories have also enjoyed a significant spike over the last few weeks.

Samsung mobile phones continue to provide great value for money both in the pre-pay and contract markets. The Samsung Jet S8000 has also found its way into the top 10 contract mobile phones list and cements its position as a major retailer.
