“Top ten” in mobile phone sales in Telia stores in December 2006



Sony Ericsson’s 3G mobile phone, the W850i, was the handset that sold best during the intense Christmas shopping period in December. Two more 3G mobiles were on the December Top Ten List, of which the Nokia N73 was one of the newcomers for the month. Huawei’s 3G card for PCs was back on the list again, coming in fifth place in December.



Mobile phones that are more advanced have gained a foothold in sales and the December list contains only one handset that cannot be used to send e-mail. Seven out of ten mobile phones are equipped with MP3 player. The last Top Ten List for 2006 was dominated by Sony Ericsson with five mobiles, followed by Nokia with three models.
