Mobile phones started to become popular in Bangladesh in the late ’90s. The first phones were way oversized compared to any phone of today. There was an antenna on top of the phone, and they used to be quite troublesome to carry because of their weight. These were technically called “brick phones.” There were just two things you could do with a phone. Make a call and send text messages. But they were quite pricey, and it was quite prestigious to own such a simple mobile phone at that time. These phones are not available anymore on the market.
Then at the beginning of the 20th century came the somewhat smarter so-called “bar phones” or “feature phones.” These phones had nice polyphonic ringtones, FM radio, 3.5 mm jack, snake game, Bluetooth and some of them also had a low-quality back camera. Feature phones gained rapid popularity among the financially low-middle class to rich class people of Bangladesh. The entry-level feature phones were slightly cheaper than the first generation mobile phones in Bangladesh, and it offered many more features. It is because by that time the technology was advancing faster, the market was growing, and new brands were bringing more competition. Although, Nokia dominated the market alone at that time. Phones like Nokia 3310, 1100,1110, 3210, 6600, 2600 led the local as well as global scene. Now there are many more brands competing in the feature phone category. Here you may find the latest feature phone price in Bangladesh.
In Mid 20th century, the first generation smartphones showed up in the market. Nokia kept its leading place with the N series smartphones. BlackBerry was another respectable name in the first-generation smartphone years. There were still no touchscreen, apps, etc. and you couldn’t do too many things with them. But you could already access the internet, and these phones were cool looking. Here you will find smartphone price in Bangladesh by the latest release.
However, at the end of 2008, the first commercial Android phone was launched by HTC called HTC Dream. Within just one year of its launch, Android started to change the market entirely with its innovative apps and through the number of possibilities these apps were offering. iPhones were also making its place among the somewhat more affluent class. But since iPhones have always been pricey, fewer people could afford it. Since then, it has been just Android especially in developing countries like Bangladesh. As of 2018, Android has over 80% global market share. See the latest Android mobile price in Bangladesh.
Smartphones are compact and versatile. But if you want to watch or read something with comfort, it is not offering that practical large screen. A laptop computer is too big to carry sometimes and the keyboard or mouse is not always necessary. So, tablets, tabs or tablet computers came in the market. A tab usually has 7 to 12 inches size touchscreen. Many of them support 4G and calls as well. You can also find tab price in our website.
