Sony Ericsson loses top spot

Sony Ericsson and its T630 handset have fallen from number one in March
to fourth place in the Telia Top 10 for April.
Samsung´s SGH-E700 is the winner in April.

Even so, Sony Ericsson, like Nokia, have four phones in the list of best
selling handsets. The T610 model has entered the list thanks to improved
deliveries. However Nokia have two phones in the top four. Samsung and
Siemens have one each in the Top 10 .

" Unfortunately the deliveries from Sony Ericsson have not come up to
customer demands, says Hans Carlsson, marketing director for Telia
stores."
