HCM CITY (VNS) — Most mobile device agents and stores in HCM City expect to achieve high turnover in December and in early 2015, thanks to several holidays and festivals, according to market observers.
The prediction was based on business results that the companies have achieved in recent weeks, particularly after Apple's new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets were put on sale in mid-November in the country.
In November, at FPT's shops, the two iPhones 6 brought the highest turnover, followed by iphone 5s, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Other popular smartphones include Asus, Sony, Oppo and Nokia.
Turnover for Thegioididong.com and dienmay.com increased by 10 per cent and 15 per cents compared to October and 2013 figures, respectively.
A representative of thegioididong.com, who declined to be named, said that his company's turnover rose because of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Gold sold well as sales from promotions (12-24 per cent discounts) on many smartphones such as Samsung Grand 2, Nokia Lumia 1520 and HTC Butterfly S.
In addition to the products, some products such as the new Nokia 535 and Oppo R5 have also attracted customers because of their convenient features and reasonable prices.
As for the PC tablet market, Nguyen Hong Linh from FPT said the Asus Fonepad FE170 with full 3G telephony functionality was one of the bestsellers last month among PC tablets selling for less than VND3 million.
Five out of 10 kinds of Samsung's tablets, three types of Apple iPads, and several kinds of Asus tablet PCs were also big earners.
Because of the PC tablet market's rapid growth, many mobile device companies such as Asus, HP and Lenovo have increased investment in production of low-cost tablet PCs to fully tap the market segment that Apple and Samsung have not yet occupied.
