Mobile industry production down in Q1 2009

Last week we reported on figures from ABI Research, which said 258 million mobile phones were shipped during the first three months of 2009 - an 11% drop year-on-year. Today IDC and Strategy Analytics have both released similar reports. IDC says mobile phone manufacturers shipped 244.8 million units in the first quarter of 2009, 15.8% lower than the same period in 2008. And Strategy Analytics reckons 245 million mobiles were shipped worldwide in Q1 2009, down 13% year-on-year. Whichever figures you choose, it’s not good news for the mobile industry.
