According to Mobile Wholesale, Estonia's largest mobile operator EMT and fixed-line operator Elion sold a total of 160,000 mobile phones in 2004.
This is about 30 percent more than a year earlier. The biggest growth was recorded in the segment of medium-class and top-of-the line phone models.
According to Indrek Randveer, service and sale manager of EMT, sales of mobile phones in Estonia went up in the same way as in the whole world.
Statistics shows that the market leader in Estonia is still Nokia, but Samsung and Alcatel have made major inroads recently.
At the same time customers have been buying fewer SonyEricsson phones. "This may be because the manufacturer has not shown interest towards the Estonian market," said Hanno Eerme, CEO of Mobile Wholesale.
