Gradual Fame of Mobile Accessory Wearable

Jakarta, Indonesia - Mobile accessories and devices sales have skyrocketed in the last couple of years as technology has also been advancing. The increasing demand for smartphones have also driven manufacturers of mobile gadgets to increase their stocks and double their efforts to innovate depending on the needs of the consumers. But as the technology is fast changing, so are trends and preferences. With dozens of new models and units, one item can be hot in the first couple of months and be totally forgotten on the following days. It is already a cycle in the modern world and distributors have accepted the risk and challenge to deliver the products fast and be constantly updated on the latest releases.

One sector, the wearable, is yet to have that worry since we are still presently at the time when wearable devices are slowly being appreciated. It may not have reached its own peak of success yet but soon, its popularity is set to surpass that of monopods. In their review of the total adoption of people on wearable gadgets, the Peterson Group, distributor of mobile phone accessories and laptop peripherals in Taiwan observes that “this category will have a long and profitable tail. In fact, key products released this year have given wearables a healthy bump in terms of market expansion and popularity”, says Ian Peterson, CEO.

To the average consumer, these wearable refers to the Apple Watches. While it is true that Apple has contributed to the mainstream appreciation of the device, it is not the only brand and product to drive this category into its slow but steady success. As a matter of fact, fitness bands are skyrocketing with high average selling price opportunities. Authorities even found fraud fitness bands on black markets which are being flocked by health cautious customers.

See, as technology advances, consumers are willing to pay for more sophisticated products. If you haven’t experienced these sales in your store there’s a reason for that too: less than 5% of fitness band purchases were made at a wireless carrier store. That means there’s a tremendous opportunity to take advantage of this growing segment.

Retail stores often disregard these products and instead focus on the sales of headsets, chargers and other most in-demand devices to avoid the risk of investing. It is, however, highly advisable to include these products in your line of products albeit limit its quantity. Furthermore, it is also important to have sufficient knowledge on the background of this particular category to sell it well.

Importance Of Training In Retailing Mobile And Accessories

We are currently in an era where even three year olds know how to navigate their way through smart devices. Since it is already a part of social norms and lifestyle, mobile phones and its accessories are already considered necessities. Knowing at least the basics on both its physical features and applications is almost innate in us.

With the confidence that at least 90% of the overall population of any developing and/or developed country is knowledgeable in mobile devices, retail owners oftentimes neglect the importance of training their employees on the fundamentals of the field or at least reviewing the depth of their knowledge. True, retailing mobile devices is not rocket science but it is not a stagnant industry either. Technology, as we all know is constantly evolving and changing and with what is currently happening, the shift is spurring fast and we have to be updated on the latest to constantly be in the loop. Besides, training also enables us to understand the going in and out of the business.

No Olympic medalist can learn their sport overnight. Every athlete needs ample amount of training and practice to succeed. Just as well, in order for your business to grow, you and your employees need to establish proper training regimen.

We, at the Peterson Group, for instance, conduct annual trainings and seminars for our own employees. Since they need to understand the process and system of our company, we strive hard not to confine them on their own respective departments alone. We urge them to interact with each other’s teams that will enable them to identify the weight of each other’s responsibilities. Although retailers encompass smaller scale teams, the people within that company also need to understand their own job description. This is also to avoid illiteracy complaints and enhance skills.

Allan Winchester, director of sales at PEW Retailing in Jakarta, Indonesia states, “A skilled and trained sales consultant will maximize the consumers’ experience by understanding the client’s needs with their lifestyle by asking the right qualifying questions and positioning all products and services available for the consumer to have the full experience with their device”.

Product training also boosts the “Wow” factor each company should have when it comes to technical specifications and is essential in strengthening credibility. Which company would want to be tagged as fraud just because their staff doesn’t seem to know what they are talking about?


Mobile Phone Usage Failures in Developing Countries

Mobile Phone Usage Failures in Developing Countries

However, despite being a good tool, a lot of organizations and human rights advocates fail to realize the implications of using mobile phones to good use on development initiatives. In a review of the practice in most developing countries, most humanitarian workers either unconsciously undermine or are not fully aware of mobile phone’s capabilities. As much as the revolution of mobile phones has been able to take down communication barriers among individual trends and cultures, it has not been used much in beneficial causes. In fact, in a survey conducted by The Peterson Group, distributor of mobile phones and laptop peripherals in Taiwan, respondents were asked on the top five benefits of mobile industry. Only 2 out of a hundred random respondents thought of including its benefits during natural calamities.

Introducing Cleaning Agents for Your Gadgets

If you prefer cleaning materials which ensures that your devices would look good as new, various cleaning screen fluids are available that can get the job done nicely. iKlear Apple Polish is reviewed as one of the best in the markets of Jakarta, Indonesia and Bangkok, Thailand. What makes this cleaning agent stand out is because it does not contain any ammonia or alcohol which is two of the cleaning agents known to eat away protective layers of your screens and keyboards.

Extending Your Wholesaling Business to Retailing

Businesses are currently divided into two types: wholesaling, which is the distribution of large quantity of products directly from the manufacturers and retailing where the goods are being sold to the direct consumer. Not only does the profit double if you have both wholesale and retail, your brand can also spread to a wider audience, as stated in the review conducted by The Peterson Group, wholesaler of mobile phone accessories in Taiwan which have also invested into several retail branches in Jakarta, Indonesia.

What You Ought To Know About Firewalls

Computers are not merely for typing. Its main purpose nowadays is for internet usage. However, with the amount of online scams and viruses that can affect your hardware, extreme caution is a must before connecting to any internet-related software.

For years, businesses and organizations have used protection from any malware or virus that can affect their businesses’ data. However, the dangerous surge in email spams, Web-borne threats- including viruses, hijacks, malwares and aggressive spywares have forced home computers to acquire the same protection.

Malicious attackers can take all your data and hack all your accounts in minutes. The time of attack is even faster for professional hackers who have higher quality and far more advanced technology. Fraudsters always target PCs for their high bandwidth and always-on nature.

Firewalls do more than protect your computers from malicious ware. They also hide your internet-connect PC from view.

On the latest review of The Peterson Group, one of the leading distributors of mobile phone accessories and laptop peripherals in Taiwan, a large market of hardware-based firewall composes of businesses. In a different study, households with personal computers rarely purchase firewall protection for their PCs at home since it cannot be considered as dangerous with only the members of the family using the connection. For instance, only 3% of the household population in overall Jakarta, Indonesia has firewall installed. This leaves home PCs exposed to all manners of intrusion and attack.

There are two types of firewalls: software applications and hardware devices that plug between your modem and your computer. Although software can be less expensive, a lot of users prefer the hardware since it assures safer connection and better performance.

However, a common misconception happens when an individual purchases a firewall thinking all internet issues will already be solved only to complain later on that he is still receiving spams. Firewalls may be great at stopping unwanted intrusions, but they often do little or nothing to detect virus-laden e-mails or stop intrusive adware and spyware. You'll want separate antivirus and spyware checkers to stymie these threats. What's more, hardware firewalls usually won't manage outbound traffic, which means a piece of spyware can freely send data from your PC to a server on the Internet.

Many experts believe that the dawn of firewall may come one day with all the importance and warnings already laid to the public. It is only a matter of time before people become aware.

How to Market Your Mobile Accessories Business Online

With the vast expansion of businesses going digital, retailers of mobile phone accessories have also started to extend their marketing strategies online. But with the number of competition increasing as more and more retailers realize the importance of online presence to boost their name in the industry; the internet has become a venue of a wide variety of promotional antics. Good reviews are important in these ecommerce businesses.

We cannot deny the reliance of consumers on the internet nowadays to know the latest selection of items and choose from a wide spectrum of options especially in electronics. Those who take advantage of the wider edge the internet provides have agreed that setting up an online business can double the profit in a lesser amount of time compared to solely having a physical store. Once you sell your accessories online, you open the doors to a whole new revenue stream capable of skyrocketing your sales.

The Peterson Group, Taiwan-based distributor of mobile phone accessories and laptop peripherals in the Asia-Pacific admits to have struggled while gaining online presence for their own website but becoming an entrepreneur in the ecommerce market is all about whom you partner with and what you know about mobile devices. Here are the tips that can get you started with your mobile accessories business online:

Be on edge by featuring creative accessories

Choose which kind of accessories you would want to sell. It can be either cases, chargers or screen protectors. Customizing your own accessories can give you an edge against your competitor. Personalized cases are trending in Jakarta, Indonesia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Singapore.

Find a Manufacturer which can provide your redesigned accessories

For personalized designs, you probably don’t have the tools to create them. Instead, you’ll have to take your designs and shop them out if you want to learn how to sell cell phone accessories online the right way. Find a manufacturer who will create your products inexpensively. Then, find the right margin and price your products so you can make a profit on each sale while still offering consumers a deal.

Create a website that your audience will love

You can take advantage of online businesses which offers free website as there are a lot of designs to also choose from. You also have the option to work with a web design team to create a brand that resonates your business.

Battle between Battery Brands

Battle between Battery Brands

One thing to consider when buying smartphones is on how long the battery can last. It is somehow a great issue nowadays on how fast batteries can drain compared to how it was years ago with mobile phone models such as the Nokia 3210 which can last for few straight days without charging. Mobile phone experts suggest that the life expectancy of mobile batteries is the same as before. It is only because we use more applications and are totally dependent on smartphones for our daily activities that our batteries drain faster. We can all relate to the feeling of anxiety once our screen flashes red warning blinks on the battery bar.

On the review of the development of mobile phone batteries, only small advancements in battery tech have been made since the introduction of lithium. Manufacturers have been too focused on the improvement of smartphones that accessories such as batteries have been left behind. And without a comparable energy source, even the most innovative portable electronics (including the Apple Watch) meet with criticism and complaints.

The Peterson Group, Taiwan-based distributor of mobile phone accessories and laptop peripherals conducted a study between different brands of mobile phone batteries.

With tablets, Apple comes first on the quickest to charge followed by Samsung. Generic copies of chargers are recognized to charge faster than original ones. With mobile phones, both Samsung and Apple products go neck to neck even with generic chargers being used.

If you travel without all of your original chargers, you could be looking at a long wait to get a phone or tablet fully charged. Nevertheless, experts continue advising though to use original ones that ensure 100% quality and long lasting battery life even when it charges the slowest.

There are times that we also use chargers from some of our devices. There is no existing manual against it but experts advise to avoid this practice as it can damage both your devices and chargers.

A similar study held in Jakarta, Indonesia interchanged chargers of tablets and mobile phones. Results show that the phones had no problem drawing juice from the tablet chargers, but the tablets didn’t respond well to the phone chargers.

The study also included testing of USB ports but the results show that not all USB ports perform the same. Depending on the device, the charge can take up to 17 hours. It may be because iPhones have smaller battery than Samsung and the port cannot fully support the brand.


How to Know If Your Phone Is Fake

How to Know If Your Phone Is Fake

With millions of units dispensed every year, Samsung, iPhone, LG, Lenovo, Alcatel, Nokia and other mobile brands have reached global recognition and are known to conduct fierce competitions among themselves. These brands have also dominated stalls, kiosks, and franchise stores across the globe. With each new release, people flock mobile phone stores to purchase.

However, other leading brands are not the only rival mobile manufacturers have. Mobile phone business gives big profit despite the competition. Fraudulent manufacturers of counterfeit mobile phones are also benefitting on the industry’s high revenue.

The Peterson Group, distributor and wholesaler of mobile phone accessories and laptop peripherals in Taiwan had recently participated in a buy-bust operation in one of the largest supplier of counterfeit mobile phones in Jakarta, Indonesia. The authorities along with the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology regulations board of the country have discovered 5 stalls in Pasar Pagi Mangga Dua selling fake units of Samsung Galaxy and iPhones. Legitimate brands were also found but it was later confirmed that these are stolen products procured by pickpocketers.

So how do you avoid being scammed into buying fake mobile phone units? Here are some tips:

1. Research

Know your phone. You should only buy a phone made by a trusted manufacturer. Before committing to a purchase you should know the phone's specific model number, available colors, features, what software and hardware comes included and what warranty is offered with the product. Information about a specific model of phone can be found on the manufacturer’s website or through a registered retailer. Once you have this information it will make the job of identifying fake much easier.

2. Look into the Appearance

Do a closer inspection of the phone you will be purchasing as for the first glance, it can look identical to the real ones. Fraudsters cannot completely copy every aspect of the phone. There should be a difference in color, location of the buttons and size and spelling of the brand names. This is why a personal encounter with the phone would be very beneficial.

3. Don’t Forget to Check the Features and Functionality

Fraud copies are made in cheap materials and sub-standard components. Processing speeds may be lower, the images taken are pixelated or the operating system just doesn’t function smoothly. It is important to compare technical features to ensure the phone is genuine.

Counterfeit Mobile Accessories Increasing in Number

Warnings continue to be carried on, though, by international organizations. Along with legitimate manufacturing companies, raids are being operated and thousands of fraudsters have been caught red handed.

The Peterson Group, a Taiwan-based company which distribute mobile phone accessories and laptop accessories across Asia noted that the international commerce sector has tightened their licensing programs and inspection process to carry out more operations and jail few more thousands fraudsters.

Future of Mobile Accessories

The fast changing world has become too unpredictable that all of us are already expecting things which may seem only possible in our imagination. Technology is changing in high rate that everything is becoming more modernized. Mobile phones are not to be left behind when it comes to the latest application and future expectations. In order to be able to optimize the latest in technology in your mobile phones, your accessories should be able to complement with the latest feature as well.

Analysts have also predicted a lot of improvements among technologies in mobile phones. Many manufacturers and distributors are already supplying advanced accessories in the hopes of leading the aggressive competition. The market is even fiercer in developing cities where imitations and fraudulent copies are trending to be able to keep up with the latest in developed nations. Both gray and black markets are extensive especially in the suburbs and downtown streets of Jakarta, Indonesia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Bangkok, Thailand and Beijing, China.

High quality legitimate accessories are also being distributed despite the widespread of fraud ones. Among Asian distributors, The Peterson Group, Taiwan based supplier of mobile phone accessories and laptop peripherals, has been known to provide standardized modern technologies which a lot of retailers have rated to adhere to the latest craze. In an interview with its CEO, Sander Peterson, they are continuously expecting more advancement in the near future. Among these expectations are:

  1. Wireless Gadgets

Technology is now integrating wireless devices such as headsets operating through Bluetooth connection or health wrist bands which monitor your physical physique in real time. If Bluetooth is not available, WiFi connection is the convenient replacement. Almost all gadgets already have their own wireless copies. Soon, this trend will soon wipe out the use of hassle cords.

  1. Key-less Gadgets

If you think wireless is the limit of Bluetooth capacity, think again. In a review of future possibilities, analysts predict that smart devices would soon enable an ever-widening of wearable technology such as wrist-worn health fitness monitor to smart watches. Possible hologram technologies wherein keypads would appear in mid-air are also expected soon. Currently, hotels and other industries are in the process of using swipe technologies for locks and other transactions instead of keypads.

  1. Cashless Beacon

The new chip cards in replacement of credit cards are already being implemented in the United States, which, its inventors claim, is created to prevent credit scams and online theft. This inspired the possible creation of gadgets which can be used in payments and other financial transactions connected to mobile phones.

Amazing Facts about Data Cards for Laptops

Gone were the times when computers were bulky and internet connections require physical wires and cumbersome plugs. It was the time when computers can only stay in one place: either at home or in the office.

Web technology and computer hardware has come a long way since then, allowing us to take the web with us wherever we go, whenever we need it. The internet has revolutionized the way us, humans think and has driven us to greater innovations and inventions, even to the point of making it possible for us to access the world through microchips and devices as small as our own fingers.

Mobile broadband usually refers to the ability of the internet to connect to laptops and netbooks. Providers even designed these broadband to connect to any laptop through the flash drive port.

Data cards are available from 1G to 3G networks. With the fast growth of the 4th generation network, it is expected to soon dominate the market as well. These data cards or mobile broadband sticks are mostly distributed by telecommunication operators but there are also independent vendors which supplies international data cards. Huawei and Intex are some of the most famous international brands. Wholesalers for mobile phone accessories and laptop peripherals such as The Peterson Group, Taiwan-based distributor, also sell these kinds of mobile sticks.

Dongle, which is a type of data card, looks like a flash drive but instead of using it for data storage, it stores a modem which connects wirelessly to a network. The dongle is powered by your computer so there is no need for it to be charged. According to reviews, dongle takes up most number of internet users. It is also mostly given out for free when you buy a mobile broadband plan. For this, it is usually illegally duplicated and sold to unsuspecting cities with lax security systems.

The Importance of Bluetooth Technology

Bluetooth technology has been quite popular after infrared has lost its patrons. Almost every one of us has utilized Bluetooth for our files and data. It is very important to know that Bluetooth wireless technology allows us to share the data , the voice , the music , the video and a lot of information between paired devices , It is built into many products , from the mobile phones , the cars to the medical devices and the computers .

With the development of technology, evolution has also taken place for Bluetooth. Nowadays, we are also using it to connect and communicate to other people through different devices. Portable devices are invented to connect to laptop and other gadgets. It is also important to note that today’s Bluetooth technology can tether internet connection with a connected device. You can also answer emails with a laptop technology in a very useful way.

According to the Peterson Group, a company supplying mobile accessories and laptop peripherals in Taiwan, Bluetooth devices are now among the most in-demand items in the list of accessories and paraphernalia of modern gadgets. It is considered vital for businessmen who usually deal ample amount of transactions using these devices, for students who are commonly transferring data and information from one Bluetooth device to another and for ordinary citizens who use it for internet connection and file sharing. Thousands of reviews are written on the great impact of Bluetooth to the now technologically-dominated society and how it can last for until there is modernization.

The demand for these devices is highest in developing cities with increasing number of smartphones. Jakarta, Indonesia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Singapore are among the most number of Bluetooth usages. This shows the importance of technology in today’s urbanization.

Bluetooth not only promises fast information sharing, it can also add to citizens’ safety. Through Bluetooth, the warning sign of safe driving was crossed. Through a Bluetooth device, it makes it easier to talk to someone on the phone while on the car, albeit authorities still slightly warning against it.

Bluetooth technology is also important because of its mobility. You can set up a Bluetooth connection while on the go without the need for a power outlet, an Internet connection or any other items. For example, if you have your cell phone with you and it has Bluetooth capability, you can set up a connection with other Bluetooth-enabled devices. This is convenient for individuals who need to make connections while away from a computer

Now Bluetooth helps strengthen the dominant position in wireless communications helping big companies in their reputation with innovative technology that integrates into the operating system.

Comeback of Polaroid Instant Cameras

Comeback of Polaroid Instant Cameras

Polaroid or instant cameras have been the mainstream in the late 1940s when a Harvard University dropout, Edwin H. Land discovered it. For years, it has become the mainstream in many societies, paving way to more recent inventions. The device has been gathering acclaimed fame that within a few years after its discovery, Polaroid has already been distributed to 45 countries.

…Then came the modern era.

In the age of digitization and the invention of digital cameras, Polaroid has found itself near trash bins. Since images can now be saved in mobile devices, Polaroid has slowly lessened its usefulness. Nobody wants to store numerous photos in shoeboxes anymore.

Instant film has seemed to fade into the dark for a few years but is now making a comeback.

It started in 2008 when a group of eager young entrepreneurs reinvented Polaroid cameras making the design sleeker and the built more fit for stylish and modern feel. Numerous reviews were written for the new reinvention and the product has once again gained sensation. A different type of film was used. For different reasons, may it be nostalgia, just for the fun of it, convenience or just to keep up with the trend, people has started using it once again.

Because of the regained fame, Polaroid brand is not the only one manufacturing it. There are numerous numbers of Polaroids producing the same product with different features but instant still. The Peterson Group, a Taiwan-based company which distributes mobile phone accessories and laptop paraphernalia across Asia, reports at least 10 companies claiming their own brand in Polaroid Cameras.

Since it is popular nowadays, fraudsters are also taking advantage of the trend to create their own fake products but that does not hinder the profit granted for legitimate companies selling these products.
According to reports, Polaroid cameras are familiar mostly to women and have been reviewed by one of the most favorites in Working Mother’s Magazine.

These days, Polaroid Cameras are even available as accessories for mobile accessories. Countries from Asia have been recorded to use the most number of Polaroid this year as selfies have become a trend. Seoul, South Korea, Jakarta, Indonesia and Tokyo, Japan are the top of the list in most selfies taken through Polaroid. They have been using their smartphones in the process and have been featured in many television programs and events.

The instant cameras are fit for those who want a classic style of capturing a moment. Polaroid has done the trick and is still here to stay.

How Waterproof Is Your Case

Protecting your phones in the water during outdoor excursions is very challenging especially during vacations when you are near pools and beaches where there are a lot of things and memories to capture and you have nothing but your own mobile phones to use. Even when you are not in a vacation, phones can also get dunked in the toilet or have drinks spilled over them.

Mobile phones are now promising more secured features to create a more convenient experience to users. The Peterson Group, a mobile phone distributor of phone accessories and laptop peripherals based in Taiwan addresses the concern with the following product review for waterproof gadgets and accessories:

  1. LifeBox Rugged Protection Case

With the tough metal casing that can take extra falls aside from surpassing watery adventures, this LifeBox Protection case can fully submerge in water at the depth of upto 6.6 feet for an hour. It is also used by military and training personnel as it can withstand drop test of 6 meters unscathed. It can also guard your phones against dust, dirt and extreme temperatures.

  1. Vansky Universal Waterproof Case

Popular for scuba diving in the shores of Jakarta, Indonesia, the Vansky Universal Waterproof Case is a universal case designed as a pouch for better handling underwater. It works in any smartphones and has clear window on each side, a secure locking mechanism on top and an adjustable strap.

  1. Optrix Body Glove Kit

Mostly compatible with iPhone 6, this waterproof case can be used in any weather. Perhaps the most effective case in today’s generation, its intricate details cannot even be batted by fraudulent designs. It clumps up entirely and securely and offers waterproof quality up to the depths of 30 feet and has been dropped tested in the height of 20 feet.

How to Prolong Battery Life

We have all experienced it: in the middle of watching a movie near the climax, or when you are in a meeting, and you find in your horror that your laptop battery is almost dead and you forgot your charger or there is no available outlet.

Before you buy some counterfeited battery from the stalls of Jakarta, Indonesia or black markets of Beijing, China which can easily harm your laptop, make sure you are running out of options first. There are more strategies to prolong your battery’s life and it can be applicable anytime anywhere.

Taiwan-based distributor of mobile phone accessories and laptop peripherals, The Peterson Group, shares some technique on how to prolong your battery life and save yourself from an irritating trouble of not being able to finish what you have to do.

1. Activate your Laptop Battery Saver Mode or Eco Mode

It seems like an easy thing to do but many laptop users just seems to overlook this laptop’s feature. Saver Mode will engage a number of automatic changes just to lengthen usable battery life. It can minimize the brightness and contrast of your monitor, review the applications you are using, shut down unwanted software devices and reduce power consumption.

2. Disable Unused Devices and Ports

You may have a battery saver mode but it cannot guarantee to close every unused application. It is better to close any unneeded peripherals and turning off power blogs, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios, graphics processors and unused optical drives. A little warning though, before disabling any component device, make sure that the device is not in use, and that it is not essential to continuing operation of the laptop.

3. Adjust Your Setting

Once again, your eco saver may do that for you; still, it would be better if you do it manually. The eco mode may not be able to adjust the color and contrast as you would want it to. It may adjust it too dim for you. If you are only doing a document or simple tasks, you would not need a 1080p or higher display. You can also tone down the volume.

4. Simplify your Activities

Start by single tasking. Multitasking is okay when you have your outlet ready but on dire needs, prioritize only the necessity. Playing online music can drain batteries. If music is a must, then, save some music in your local disk and play from there. By eliminating unnecessary power uses, you should be able to extend the life of your battery in those moments that you find yourself high and dry.
