“Top ten” in mobile phone sales in Telia stores in October

However, the Nokia 3120 handset was no longer the best-selling mobile in Telia’s stores in October. It was replaced by the extra durable Nokia 5140i modeI.

In addition to the SonyEricsson W800i, two other newcomers entered the top ten list in October: the SonyEricsson K300i and the Nokia 6101. Nine out of ten mobiles on the October top ten list came preconfigured with Telia SurfPort. Seven out of ten were camera mobiles, and six out of ten had a built-in e-mail client.
