| | Future of IT Hardware / Cellphone Repair Business?
Apart from being an automobile enthusiast I work in the IT industry as a Network/System Admin. Now I am willing to set up my own business regarding sales and repairs of old cellphones/PCs and other IT equipments like CCTV,UPS,Inverters.Solar Energy etc. I'll provide chip level and software level repairs of mobile phones and Motherboards and other IT peripherals. I have been selling used PCs via OLX and friends and contacts. It fetches a decent profit.
But, I get confused about the future of IT repairs business, as the new technology mobiles come with embedded technology which has single chip for various functions and also the low cost mobiles and IT peripherals which encourage people to buy new rather that getting the old one repaired.
Also I see a ray of hope about this business when I see people buying,using older model mobiles and getting them repaired. And also the Chinese mobiles are repairable now.
Dear TAIians, please give your views and suggestions about this business.
