Nokia: 3G handset sales to double next year

Posted on Wednesday, December 28 2005 @ 22:35 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Last week Nokia's CFO reported the company expects its 3G mobile handset sales will double in 2006.
"We expect the devices to double in volume in 06," Simonson said in an interview with CNBC, when asked about the outlook for 3G handsets, which enable fast data connections and more sophisticated functions like video calls.

U.S.-based rival Motorola Inc.'s (MOT.N: Quote, Profile, Research) mobile devices head Ron Garriques said in an interview published earlier this week that he expected increasing sales of 3G phones in 2006, but did not see it as a breakthrough year for the 3G market.
