Top Ten – Sony Ericsson and mobile broadband dominate
Six mobiles from Sony Ericsson are on the Top Ten List of best-selling mobile phones in Telia’s retail stores during November. Four of the phones are 3G handsets. Mobile broadband continues to be the best seller, which is why USB modems captured first place. Nokia is on the list with three mobiles.
Two newcomers entered the month’s Top Ten List – the Nokia 5310 and Sony Ericsson W910i. Eight out of nine mobiles on the list can be used as a music player, e-mail machine and camera. Mobile broadband and USB modems have remained No.1 on the Top Ten List for six straight months.
