“Top ten” in mobile phone sales at Telia’s stores in July

The Sony Ericsson K750i topped the list of best-selling mobile telephones in Telia’s stores in Sweden during July 2005. The phone moved considerably up the list, advancing from eighth place in June.

In other respects, there were few changes to the top ten list. Only one new model made the list, the Nokia 3220 – a phone with a reduced price that is part of a sales campaign. Six of the models on the list have built-in cameras and eight are preconfigured for Telia SurfPort (previouslyTelia Go).

Telia, with 77 stores, is the largest retail chain in Sweden for telecom products and one of Sweden’s largest resellers of mobile phones.
