Acer has decided keep it’s Smartphone Business on hold in our Country! You know why?
Due to our country’s immense craze towards pricing concern (Cheap) rather than quality.
It’s the biggest reason for what Acer is putting its Smartphone Business on hold, as they are not willing to compromise their quality for cheap price.
You know why it gains more of my attention?
Because after making a good amount of investment in India for setting up two manufacturing units, they have taken up this call.
At such a time when the Smartphone Business is growing in leaps & bounds in our country & the Government is also giving various benefits for Make in India initiative.
So when everything is in the motion just for one thing (a big one) global IT Hardware Giant Acer has taken this decision. They are also right from their aspect because you can’t give top quality in cheap price.
It raises a big question on Indian market! Are we getting more inclined towards pricing (Cheaper) & for that ready to compromise with quality to any extent?
Because if it’s the scenario then it’s going to be very dangerous for the future technological growth/ advancement of our country.
Afterwards, if someone has a brilliant product idea, he/ she will think will my product be able to sustain in Indian Market? Where the biggest barrier for any product is price not quality!
As we all know, any thing which is best demands it’s required price. In cheap only crap can come not a quality product.
Now you may question to our Economy & overall Economical standards for this market behaviour. You are right.
I can understand your point, but don’t you think it’s a matter of safety/ security too, while you are using any electronics gadget?
A real cheap smartphone can never assure you that. May be they are assuring you in many ways but keep a simple thing in mind, best quality needs it’s price. Because that’s why price increases.
You may be reluctant but why should you take any kind of risk?
Apart from the safety aspect what about helping/ supporting/ encouraging the innovation ecosystem of India.
If in future a new company comes in the market with their path breaking product & get stuck in the selling front for pricing, how the young Entrepreneurs/ Innovators will find encouragement. Right?
So from both aspect and to make our country’s image better, try to acknowledge & give value to real quality as much as you can.
