According to The NPD Group, the leader in market information for the wireless industry, mobile phone sales to consumers in the U.S. reached 31.6 million units in the third quarter of 2005. This number represents solid incremental growth of 7 percent from the second quarter 2005 sales volume of 29.6 million units and an increase of more than 30 percent compared to sales during the same period in 2004. NPD estimates total third quarter 2005 consumer sales of slightly more than U.S. $2 billion.

"The handset market was very robust in the third quarter," said Neil Strother, research director for mobile devices at The NPD Group. "These numbers reflect strong replacement demand among consumers, coupled with more limited growth from new subscribers."

According to NPD's Mobile Phone Track, Motorola continued its leadership in the U.S. market during the third quarter, boasting three of the top five best-selling models, including its popular RAZR device at Cingular Wireless and T-Mobile. During the third quarter, Motorola's demonstrated strength was due in part to a significant gain in share within the Verizon Wireless handset portfolio. The battle continues to be intense among LG, Nokia and Samsung for the number two market position.

NPD reports that manufacturers' third quarter 2005 market shares are as follows Motorola 30 percent, LG 16 percent, Nokia 16 percent, Samsung 16 percent, Sanyo 5 percent, Kyocera 4 percent, Sony Ericsson 4 percent, UTStarcom/Audiovox 3 percent, Siemens/BenQ 2 percent, and others 5 percent.
