Ringtones are HUGE

So I’m surfing through Google because I get bored easily, and I find myself wondering: who ever thought ringtones would get this big? It seems like every time I search for music, or movies, or television shows, or woodland critters, I get tons and tons of results that have something to do with ringtones. Ringtones have really come a long way, and it’s surprising to know just how far we’re talking about.
For one thing, Billboard now has a top ringtones chart (yeah, they actually rank ringtones now), and mobile companies like Telecom actually hold annual ringtone awards. Even entertainment associations like the IMA and BET have awards for ringtone categories (Flo Rida and T-Pain won at the BET awards last year). It just goes to show where the industry is going nowadays. Mobile phones are becoming more and more like mobile media devices than basic communication tools. Industry players have recognized this, and now everybody else is beginning to. If you don’t believe me: Google it. If you do, check this out.
