I created an Excel database with mobile phones sourcing data from www.gsmarena.com, for my personal research of how handheld devices evolved along history, and publishing it here for anyone else interested in same thing. I also created a digital cameras database and I am interested in laptops and other electronics, please suggest websites to scrap data from!

Warning for Indian spammers: I am selling database of phone DEVICES. I am NOT selling any database of phone numbers or any kind of people’s personal information, DO NOT ask me for such things. While people from rest of world do understand what I sell, about 20-30% of requests from India are about phone numbers… SMS
marketing spamming is trendy there?
Mobile phone database coverage
The mobile phone specification database include classic phones and smartphones, tablets and smartwatches, from 110 most popular phone brands in western world. There may be missing brands especially from China which have a lot of brands totally unknown outside their domestic market.
Earliest models included are Ericsson phones launched in 1994, but I guess that some early phone models are missing, as number of phones launched per year is significant only after 2003.

Indian mobile phones
This page has been getting significant traffic from India, with many people contacting me but refusing to buy above worldwide mobile phones database and asking me if I can create another mobile phones database with only models available in Indian market. Job done!
I sourced data from 91mobiles.com, this website have 10 category of products, such as Tablets, Cameras, TVs, Home Theaters, Smartwatches, Washing machines, Air conditioners, Refrigerators, Microwave oven, but I do not intend to scrap all categories and create databases for each, because would take a lot of time to regularly update each of them, for their sale volume, they will become products sell-able only in India and we all know how little indians pay, if people from western world contact me if they are able to make a purchase, many indians contact me regardless they are willing to pay or not, and just few leads actually convert to sales.

I am NOT responsible for any copyright troubles you may face if you use their data commercially, making own website, etc. This is NOT an original database “Made by Teoalida”, but rather a database showcasing abilities of data scraping, and the data belongs to www.gsmarena.com. Please consider the price a fee for data scraping service from website rather than author of data.
