In the highly globalized, competitive and technocrat world, mobile industry is heavily focused on making itself sustainable. In order to achieve this focus should be on improving the e waste management in the industry. Currently the industry is advanced beyond market demand in delivery services to customers in terms of ICT and smart phones. This research paper is trying to conceptualize the aspect of technology management by comparing technology advancement of mobile phone technology and the lagging e WASTE management in the same industry. The paper further explores the importance of sustainability and its acceptance by the customers of the mobile technology. The reasons for this adoption lag among customers of mobile technology might be lack of awareness or just slow response. The paper reviews current literature and the author tries to conceptualize his thoughts in this paper.
