As the market for smartphones matures, OEMs are finding it difficult to differentiate themselves from their competitors. Devices incorporating revolutionary features have given way to iterative improvements that preserve brand loyalty but are less iconic. At the same time, operator device subsidies have vanished, replaced by installment plans that shift more of the financing burden from operator to consumer. There has always been a secondary market for mobile phones, however market conditions have changed causing a shift from collect and recycle to collect, refurbish, resell, and profit. In this IDC Web conference, mobile phone analysts Will Stofega and Anthony Scarsella will provide guidance and insight to help the mobile industry navigate the new and vibrant secondary smartphone market.

Session Speakers:

  • Will Stofega, Program Director, Mobile Device Technology and Trends
  • Anthony Scarsella, Research Manager, Mobile Phones

Audio replays of this Web conference are available to all registered participants starting the day after the event.
