“Top ten” in Telia stores in August 2007
– Mobile broadband and 3G mobiles on the move Mobile broadband continued to be a big seller in Telia’s retail stores in Sweden, and as a result, sales of USB modems topped the list for the second month in a row. Sales of 3G mobile phones accelerated rapidly during August and three new 3G mobiles – all from Sony Ericsson – entered the Top Ten List for the month.
“Sales have been strong in Telia’s retail stores all summer and our customers have been especially interested in buying advanced mobile handsets. Alongside mobile broadband, the big hit of the summer has been mobiles with GPS navigation,” says Fredrik Rudberg, head of sales at TeliaSonera for Mobility Services inSweden.
Eight out of nine mobile phones on the August Top Ten List are equipped with a camera. Seven function as e-mail and music mobiles.
