“Top ten” in mobile phone sales in Telia stores in January 2007
3G handsets have gained a firm foothold in Telia’s Top Ten List of best-selling mobile phones in Sweden. Four out of ten mobiles sold in January were 3G phones. However, two less advanced mobiles – for example, without MP3 player and e-mail – were also among the top three. These two phones were included in the January clearance sales at Telia retail outlets in Sweden. The Nokia 1110i captured first place in the January Top Ten List.
With the exception of a few simpler mobile handsets, the January Top Ten List was still dominated by mobiles with built-in camera, e-mail reader and music player. Eight out of ten phones had a camera. Seven out of ten had e-mail and a MP3 player. The 3G card for wireless surfing on portable computers remained on this month’s list, taking sixth place.
