QWERTY Mobile Phone Under $50

Updated on January 30, 2010

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).

Exhibition has a big role in selling the mobile phone. Every vendors give special discount during the exhibition. I am impressed with the price $45 for QWERTY mobile phone and it still discounted until $29 during the exhibition. Wow….we get QWERTY mobile phone only $29. Do you believe it? But I can tell you that this is real.

HT Mobile G10 with the price $45

How about famous vendor like NOKIA. They still optimistic , because they have loyal consumer. There are many people who still choose the mobile phone with high quality. Even in 2010, vendors based in Finland is going to shipping more than 500 million phones. BlackBerry still has a lot of loyal fans. So they are not so afraid of the threat of Chinese mobile phone with the quality under their product.

What's Wrong with ACFTA (ASEAN-China Free Trade Agreement)

Start from January 1, 2009 in Indonesia applies ACFTA. ACFTA stands for ASEAN-China Free Trade Agreement. This is kind of trade agreement between the countries around Southeast Asia and China. What is the effect for my country? A lot of product from ASEAN and China-free entry into my country (Indonesia). Many public opinion response......

"Plagiarism" in Other Side

Whether QWERTY phone like BlackBerry is kind of plagiarism. Plagiarism is common word that we use for something have "identical" or really the same. Copy or recognize a work from original source. We usually talk about "plagiarism" around the internet. Like Plagiarism in writing that we usually talk. But now I talk about plagiarism in Industry. With many product was copied and it sold to consumer with higher profit.

      Thanks Wrath Warbone for coming to this hub. I can't give that information for you. But you can also browse in the cellular shop from Indonesia. Just use keyword "jual beli handphone QWERTY" in google browser.

      I hope it can little help you. You can order by that website. Maybe it need cost in shipping to America. And the price doesn't under $50 again. But it cheaper than other phone. You can compare that price. Or you can sell it back. I hope this information useful for you.
