Global handset sales to slip 7.5 per cent this year

Global mobile phone shipments in 2009 is expected slip, but will still hit over one billion, says Yano.
The Japanese research believes the decline will be the first decrease since 2001. Shipments reached a record 1.182bn in 2008.

However, the Tokyo-based firm forecasts global shipments will expand to 1.322bn by 2012 due to stable demand in developing economies in Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.
