India is the worlds fastest growing wireless market and Nokia has produced more than half of all handsets sold in the country. There are now 190 million Nokia users in India with a record 7.34 million joining in June.
India is now only second to China for Nokia sales, which is a rise of two places from 2005.
Nokia CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo said: ‘India is playing an increasingly important role in the global economy buoyed by impressive economic growth, skilled manpower and tremendous business opportunity.
As the market leader in devices and infrastructure, Nokia is committed to build the telecom ecosystem in the country and foster the creation of a favorable environment for collaboration and economic development.’
