—This paper deals with the requirements engineering(RE) for developers of mobile telephones, and its role in mobile telephones technology development. RE is one of the most critical task in mobile telephones industry activities, because of the highly dynamic market change, especially in mobile telephony devices to meet the market needs in short time. In mobile telecommunication devices, to meet the market needs in short time RE must be properly involved in the life cycle of the development process. However, it is too often regarded as useless and overly time consuming, because nonfunctional and functional requirements can be elicited using separate teams and process, on the other hand by using RE process in product life cycle, RE tools increase productivity and quality, customer is properly managed. In this paper we proposed main problems that stand on the way towards an optimal RE practices in mobile telephone sector. Successful product development depends gradually on collaboration between the many individuals and teams involvement including system engineers, software engineers, electronic and telecommunication engineers and the engineering director, also a high degree of cooperation between the industry and research world is essential in order to achieve success in RE phase of product development in mobile phone industry.
