European mobile device market grew 25.6% in Q1 2004

A new report from research firm IDC claims that the European market for mobile devices grew by 25.6% in Q1 2004 over the same time last year, dominated mostly by converged devices with Nokia out in front once again despite a week portfolio and HP and palmOne in second and third place. Converged device volumes continued to grow by around 35% during the quarter, although recorded growth was slower than expected.
