LONDON, September 18, 2009 ? The
Western European Mobile Phone market recorded another quarter of
year-on-year declines in the second quarter of 2009 (2Q09). According
to the IDC European Mobile Phone Tracker, handset vendors shipped 42
million units to Western Europe, down 6% from 2Q08. The second quarter
results are an improvement on the 14% decrease in 1Q09, but the crisis
will continue to impact the region.
