McClenahen The global mobile phone market volume for the year 2000 was about 405 million units, a 45% increase from 280 million units in 1999, estimates Nokia Corp., Espoo, Finland. But, brags Nokia, its mobile phone sales in 2000 reached 128 million units, 63% better than the 78.5 million sold in 1999.
