366 million handsets shipped in Asia in 2007

Asian excluding Japan handset vendors shipped 366 million phones in 2007 and will sell more than 400 million in 2008 according to IDC.

India and China accounted for more than 60% of all sales in 2007, and expects India market to be growing even faster in 2008. India still has roughly half the mobile ownership level of China, with about 20% of Indians owning a mobile phone compared with 40% in the PRC.

Nokia has the largest market share in the region, leaping to more than 50%, up from 42% in the previous year. The biggest loser is Motorola as their market share value was halved allowing Samsung to take over its 2nd position. Sony Ericsson and LG kept their positions at fourth and fifth respectively.
