A china based company would earn this much reputation in the market of mobile phones, nobody could ever guess at the initial stage of the establishment of this company. It was in the year 1997 that Cher Wang took the first step to establish a mobile company called HTC, whose major purpose was to bring up Windows phones in the mobile world. And I would like to mention here that HTC windows phones are simply awesome. These days, as Android is taking over, HTC has switched to create Android based mobile phones as well. Every phone created by HTC is a smartphone. The revenue of this company is approximately $10 billion.
Sony is a great name in the mobile world and why not? After all, this is a Japan based company and all over the world, Japan is famous for its best products. Masaru Ibuka established this company in the early days of the year 1946. In the initial days, this company had collaboration with Ericsson and what we used to get as the out coming product was the Sony Ericsson mobiles. But in the recent past, these two companies have separated and Sony makes its own mobiles. The phones of this company are always of great quality and every time a new mobile phone is launched, latest features of the day are included in the mobile phone.
Motorola is one of the oldest and the most powerful of the mobile phone companies all over the world. It was in the year 1928 that this company was established.

The mobile phones manufactured by Blackberry are well known for their robustness and high responsiveness. It was in the year 1999 that the first mobile phone was released by Blackberry. The exclusive feature of this company is that it does not work on a platform provided by some other company like Windows or Android. Rather, it has a platform of its own, the Blackberry operating system. The Blackberry Messenger or the so called BBM is the very famous feature of the Blackberry mobile phones. Again, just like HTC, every mobile phone manufactured by this company is a smartphone. Keeping a Blackberry mobile phone in your hand is supposed to be a status symbol.
