For the past two years, Val Kazia, CEO of O2 Wireless has been in a development partnership with a leading Chinese manufacturer on a new smartphone line and tablet design powered by the Android 4.0 mobile OS. These devices, which will be announced late summer 2012, will be unlike any device seen before on the market. Originally conceived as a phone specific to the Dominican Republic, we are now at the point, where the devices can be used internationally. There are three smart-phones and a 10-inch tablet. Each includes a true 5-megapixel camera, active touch-screen, and have internal features that exceed those of the top manufacturers.
According to market research released by the company Markets and Markets; total global cell phone market is expected to reach a value of 341.4 billion U.S. dollars by 2015. Sales of smartphones are expected to do 76 percent of the total revenue of this mobile phone business, or 258.9 billion dollars in the same year.
According to IDC, in 1Q 2012, phones issued by companies outside of the list of 'major manufacturers' accounted for 27% of the overall issued 144 million phones, which gives O2 a huge opportunity to provide a device that will be rapidly accepted by consumers.
"We've been finalizing the phone prototypes for the past few months and have found them to be further advanced than other phones currently on the market," states Val Kazia, CEO of O2 Secure Wireless. "We'll be carrying these devices in our retail stores, and looking to offer these 'universal' (unlocked) phones at other large retail electronics stores for additional distribution when they are available. I believe that this branded offering, which will be patented and manufactured out of China, will set us apart from other offerings in that many consumers are tired of wireless contracts and just want a high quality phone that they can purchase and use anywhere. Consumers should find the features and components of this phone to be of the highest quality and I believe that it can rival the capabilities of any device from the top public manufacturers. Revenues driven by this phone should grow quickly as many consumers are anxious for a top-quality Android phone which works on all global cellular networks. This universal phone will not need a contract, and will be able to be used on any carrier worldwide. The expected retail price of these devices is between $325.00 and $500.00 each. A full public launch of the device will start as soon as they are available for pre-order."
