The threat existence of cheap mobile phones become more frequent because of ACFTA (ASEAN-China Free Trade Agreement). Many China's mobile phone come to Indonesia. Mobile phone is not luxury product right now, it can be seen by many people have this communication product. The trend now is phone with QWERTY type. The pioneered by the BlackBerry. Many people in my country talk about QWERTY phone with affordable price, even the cheapest price. I can’t imagine the effect will like this. Why they choose QWERTY type:
- Similar with BlackBerry phone (hot sale)
- Contains one letter of a button such as a computer keyboard.
- Typing could be faster. One character for one time press.
- Easy to use and a wider view.
- Many features inside the QWERTY phone
ASEAN-China Free Trade Agreement made China’s mobile phone easily penetrate to my country with affordable price. It made the consumer confusion. Almost every day I see there are many advertisement about QWERTY mobile phone with various brand and various features. Superior features of the QWERTY phone is social media application like Facebook, twitter. Facebook is more popular right now. Start from elementary student until elder have facebook account. And they need application inside mobile phone to update their status, upload photo, and make comment to their friends. And they need something practical. And the phone operator give big discount for data transfer by mobile phone (for internet application).
