Nokia expects the number of handset users in China to rise 11% to more than 500 million in 2007 and will add another 160 million users from next year until 2010, taking the total to 660 million. China has 449 million cell phone users as of October, more than the populations of Japan and the U.S. combined.

Nokia expects 120 million cell phones to be sold in China this year, up 26 percent from 2005. Of the total, 70 million are expected to be replacement handsets.

Nokia CEO Kallasvuo expects the global number of mobile-phone users to rise to 4 billion by 2010, after 3 billion in 2007. More than half of the growth is expected to come from emerging markets in Asia including China and India.
