5 5-forces Analysis on Cell Phone Industry
Threat of new entrants? Apple would be the new entrant Google, Microsoft could choose to produce cell phones, eventually. Other cell phone companies may re-design their products to compete, later Bargaining power of buyers? Minimal—Other devices, Palm Treo, Blackberry do not integrate all technologies efficiently Threat of substitutes? Minimal. Palm Treo is only other existing convergence device. Blackberry does not have all of the same functionality, such as MP3s Bargaining power of suppliers? Minimal. Suppliers will want to get involved with new project, beneficial to their sales. Rivalry? Medium. iPhone can revolutionize the cell industry. Immediately, there will be little competition, but there will be competition from all cell phone producers once it is released. (Motorola, LG, Sanyo, Palm, Blackberry, etc)
