Demand for mobiles to increase after Ramadan

Tehran, Sept 2. MOBNA – Manager of Citadel Telecom, authorized distributor of Sony Ericsson mobiles, has predicted that when the month of Ramadan is over the demand for mobile sets will increase.

“It is quite a while since the demand for mobile sets has been diminishing dramatically partly because of Ramadhan and partly because of buyers’ economic condition,” Eiman Soltani told Mobna news agency.
“As a result of the current market situation and increase in mobile set prices following higher dollar value, customers’ presence has dramatically decreased,” he added.
“Current mobile set import tariff (25 percent) and the increase in smuggled mobile sets has made the situation harder for authorized companies to import,” he said.
