The Top Selling Music Mobile Phones in the United States
 
Wirefly, an online leader in one-stop comparison shopping for cell phones and wireless service plans, today released its list of top-selling music phones.

"Music phones are cell phones that allow users to import MP3 music files or iTunes from their PCs or download them wirelessly from a content provider. These types of cell phones are our fastest-growing category of wireless handsets," said Brian Westrick, President of Wirefly. "Music phones only joined the cell phone lineup last year. Still, according to a recent IDC study, over 50 million U.S. consumers will be using over-the-air wireless music services by 2010. We see music as an enormously popular feature in the wireless market today."

 

According to Wirefly, the 5 most popular music phones are:

  1. Sony Ericsson Z520a/z525a (Video Phone)
  2. Motorola ROKR iTunes Phone
  3. Samsung T809 and Samsung D807 (for T-Mobile and Cingular, respectively)*
  4. Samsung MM-A900 (Multimedia Phone)
  5. Cingular 2125 and T-Mobile MDA*
    * Same cell phones with different model numbers on separate networks.

    On Amazon the RAZR V3m is currently the top selling music phone.

    As the back-to-school season begins, cell phone manufacturers are introducing new models with more advanced music features to rival most portable music players. The new LG Chocolate, which will be released by Verizon Wireless this month for example, is generating a lot of buzz. The LG Chocolate features an iPod-like click wheel and a memory card that can hold up to 1,000 songs.

    The Motorola SLVR L7 delivers both form and function; The SLVR L7, which also supports iTunes, is a thin candy bar cell phone and comes in hot pink or black. The new Verizon RAZR v3m takes America’s favorite cell phone and adds a music player. Other phones which grew quickly in popularity among the music-loving crowd were Samsung's A920 for Sprint and the A950 with V-CAST for Verizon Wireless. Both feature external music controls and expandable memory card slots to hold music files.

    Technological improvements and an increasing appetite for portable music have fueled interest not only in all-in-one cell phones, but also in robust content services. Some of the newest music phone models take entertainment to the next level. Music phone models like Sprint's LG Fusic LX550 and the Virgin Mobile Sonic, are truly designed to replace stand-alone music players. These multimedia phones offer advanced content services like live streaming downloads, satellite radio and FM broadcasting, and superior sound quality.

    In the recently published ‘U.S. Wireless Music 2006-2010 Forecast and Analysis’, IDC also reports that "Mobile music storefronts are emerging as one of the most important new channels for fans to discover, purchase, and enjoy full-track music and related content" Music cell phones will soon surpass stand-alone mp3 players in terms of popularity. Wirefly also provides mobile content and ringtones downloads via its site Mfly.com.
