Japan's domestic shipments of mobile phones were up 58.4 percent in March from a year earlier, totaling 4.96 million units and marking the fifth straight rise, the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (EITA) said on Monday.

According to the Association, sales were boosted by demand for sophisticated handsets such as camera-equipped units and third-generation phones.

Domestic shipments of cell phones, which exclude personal handyphone system (PHS) handsets, rose 59.6 percent on year to 4.743 million units in March, marking the sixth consecutive rise.

PHS handset shipments totaled 212,000 in March, up 36.9 percent from a year earlier, JEITA reported.

For the year ended March 31, domestic shipments of mobile phones declined 2.6 percent on year to 44.22 million units. Of the total, shipments of cell phones were 43.1 million units, up 0.6 percent from a year earlier.

JEITA also said the net increase in contracts for mobile phone services, excluding PHS services, soared 175 percent on month to 1.3 million in March.

Total contracts for all mobile phone services were 81.118 million, up 1.6 percent from February. The amount equates to 63.9 percent of the nation's population. (Dow Jones)
