Ringtones worth billions!

Mobile phone users in the UK will be spending $1.3 bn on downloading ringtones, music, games and other content to their handsets this year, as expected by market analysts Mintel. Mintel says, it will be an 18-fold increase on the amount spent on dowloads in 2002.


The total number of mobile download sales is expected to reach 760 million this year, from just 30 million in 2002.

Come on people! there are much more productive uses of those slick gadgets in your hands. Just imagine, if that amount could have been donated to AIDS victims in countries like Zambia using the same SMS technology...

midi ringtone have become more popular and changed a lot during the past few years as mobile phones developed and became more sophisticated. From the early mono keypress or composer ringtones to polyphonic ringtones, true tones, and mp3 ringtones. And not only ringtones, but also screensavers, Java games and other software applications became available as new technology are implemented in the latest mobile phones.

As mobile phones gradually become the most common consumer electronics, ringtones will become more and more popular. And as mobile phones develop other mobile software applications will also gain much ground.
