Japan's domestic shipments of mobile phones grew 19.4 percent in June from a year earlier to approximately 4.88 million units, rising for the eighth straight month, the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA) said Tuesday.

When excluding personal handyphone system (PHS) handsets, domestic shipments of cell phones rose 19.6 percent on year in that month to 4.74 million units, marking the ninth consecutive month of gains.

JEITA attributed the growth to increased shipments of third-generation (3G) handsets as well as camera-equipped phones, which are estimated to account for more than 80 percent of the total.

Mobile phone service companies such as NTT DoCoMo Inc. have launched mobile phones equipped with high-definition cameras containing more than 1 million pixels, which match the quality of lower-end stand-alone digital cameras.

PHS handset shipments totaled 134,000 in June, up 12.8 percent on year and rising for the fourth straight month after remaining below the 100,000-unit level for the eight months to February 2003. PHS shipments were helped by continued healthy demand for handsets for use in data transmission, JEITA said.

The net increase in contracts for mobile phone services excluding PHS services was 488,800 in June, up 19.1 percent from the previous month.

Total contracts for all mobile phone services stood at 82.65 million, up 0.6 percent from May. The net increase in contracts for mobile Internet services was 626,900 in June, up 20.8 percent from May.

The data is compiled from statistics provided by a total of 17 manufacturers, including NEC Corp., Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Matsushita's unit Panasonic Mobile Communications, Toshiba Corp., Sony Corp., Hitachi Ltd., and Mitsubishi Electric Corp. (Dow Jones)
