New Delhi: India's smartphone market witnessed a massive boom in 2013 as consumers rapidly shifted from feature phones to touch-screen internet-ready devices offered at low prices. According to data from research firm IDC, smartphone sales in the country grew almost three-fold to over 44 million in 2013, buoyed by launch of low-end, cost competitive devices by international and local vendors, which are further narrowing the price gaps that exist between feature phones and smartphones.
Clearly, to keep the momentum going, smartphone makers are now engaged in a race to the bottom with feature-rich phones designed to appeal to people with low budgets. This means, with a budget of Rs 10,000 or less, you can now get a smartphone with the right mix of speed, better display, software and long battery life. The dropping average sale price of smartphones is the biggest boon to smartphone in India and other developing countries and hopefully this trend will continue in the current year.
