Realtone and Nametones, the Next Cellular Entertainment Hype?
Once upon a time in a Nokia factory far away, the first cell phone was built. And with the birth of that cellphone, the first ringtone was born: Nokia Tune. This Nokia song is the first ringtone of all, and who can guess that it will create a multibillion-dollar business in the coming years …
The first ringtone is a Nokia tone, this ringtone is a simple one melodic monophonic ringtone. And it creates a big product to the market – then small. But the market is growing bigger and soon everyone has a cellphone. And then ringtones become big business because everyone wants their own ringtones to personalize their cellphones. Monophonic ringtones are a big explosion in the music industry and advanced polyphonic ringtones are even bigger than monophonic ringtones. The polyphonic ringtones market is growing and developing as more and more cell phone users. And soon the time came for new products to be introduced to the market: realtone …
Realtone is now the biggest hit in Europe and Asia and will soon be in the US too. The latest mobile phones support realtone and mp3 sounds. Realtone is based on mp3, and other music formats. They are no longer simple MIDI files. But the original song! From real artists! Realtone is hot right now and it’s only getting hotter and hotter. Because many cellphones still don’t support it. Only the latest high-tech phones support original ringtones. But in a few years when there are no new cellular phones available that don’t support realtone, everyone will focus on realtone. And this business niche will only grow in the future of cellular entertainment. Realtone is available all over the world, realtone websites are popping up on the Internet like crazy. And customers continue to buy new ringtones for their cellphones. But realtone is still quite expensive, even more expensive than complete songs purchased on iTunes or other online download stores. Even for the price of one realtone you can easily buy an entire song, and realtone is only 30 seconds away from the song. Ringtones cost twice as much as polyphonic ringtones or monophonic ringtones. But there are still many people who buy it.
A different type of realtone is the name. Nametones is a realtone where you are called by your name. It is not a real song from a popular artist but it is a standard song but with your name in it. Something like: Hey Pete your cellphone is ringing, take it!
You have various types of nametones, there are pop nametones, nametone bubblin, hardcore nametone, nametone r & b and many more genres to choose from. But these nametones are mp3 based so your cellphone has realtone support to play them on your cellphone. Most of the names also cost the same as realtone.
So if you look at the past when monophonic ringtones were a big hype in the cellular entertainment business, and then polyphonic ringtones became big. Realtone and nametones will probably be the next big mobile entertainment sensation.
