You probably already guessed it..... YEP you did - RINGTONES. The ringtone business is currently flourishing: worldwide, it’s a $4 billion plus market. 2 years ago Mike and I were walking down the street and all of sudden I hear Nickelback . Mike, What are you doing with a portable radio in your pocket? "It's my cellphone you idiot" replied Mike. Okay that's was kinda cool and besides the sound of the slick Nickelback ringtone made it more interesting. Since then we the cast at MobiShark have been ringtone addicts.
