While advancement in technology turns into more and more speedy in expansion that many scientific electronic devices will certainly becomes out of date before it can be sold. As the average lifecycle of the many new items in the world today turns into shorter and shorter.

In designing the telephone for yr one, we all decided to use basic model with no choices added, only to test how it will perform and to save the cost of adding an option. Installed to the cost of $130 to get model A and $150 for style B.

The speaker choice was added the extra function on the phone, which will we believe could boost product sales. That came towards the cost of $180 for version A and $200 for model N. In yr four, we decided to go which has a sleek style, the super-slim. The reason we all pick this choice was because we would not think the other options had been viable aside from this one. Two of the other options the anti-theft and the speakers did not get a good response in the year just before so all of us exclude these options. The mini-DVD alternative was excluded because we all did not think anyone would want to look at a movie on the tiny display screen. In this design and style only the super-slim option was added which came to the price of $155 pertaining to model A and $175 for style B.
