AETIC ( Association of Companies of Electronics, Technologies of the Information and Telecommunications of Spain) yesterday released that 20 million mobile phones were sold in Spain in 2005, which represents an increase of the 15 percent in relation to the sales of 2004.

AETIC estimates that throughout 2005 1.5 million third generation (UMTS) phones were sold, and that approximately 6 million of the sold terminals were equipped with digital camera. The last trimester of the year, in which the Christmas campaign is included, was again the most dynamic, with 6.5 million mobiles sold.

In my search to get an update on the mobile phone penetration in Europe, I discovered this excellent list of mobile network operators at Wikipedia.
A list of mobile network operators represented per country including data on technology used, subscribers and ownership. Figures as recent as Q3 2005 can be found.

Spain had in June 2005 40,921,800 subscribers in total. According various sources checked, the Spanish market has now the sixth highest penetration rate for mobile phones in Europe and has one of the fastest growing 3G markets, estimated to reach over 30% penetration of 3G enabled phones in 2008.
