May 01, 2003|From Associated Press

Propelled by a new breed of camera-equipped phones, worldwide shipments of mobile handsets grew by more than 16% in the first quarter, according to market research.

Shipments increased to 107.6 million units from 92 million units in the year-earlier quarter, suggesting the handset industry is in for a "solid year," said an analyst at market research firm International Data Corp.

Nokia Corp. remained the top phone vendor, claiming 35.5% of global market share. The company shipped more than 38 million units -- more than double its closest competitor, Motorola Inc.
