Gartner have declared that this Christmas there will be a boom in the sale of mobile phones.
The last quarter showed that demand was increasing and holiday sales should increase this trend further. Handset vendors sold 289 million mobile phones in the July-September quarter, with strong demand in Asia and Africa.
Gartner analyst Carolina Milanesi thought that it was going to be a good Christmas, showing growth of 10 to 15 percent from last year. Milanesi said Western Europe should see good holiday sales, helped by new models from major players like Nokia and Sony Ericsson.
The top mobile phone providers agree, saying that they are also expecting a ten percent boost.
