The NPD Group announced today that U.S. Mobile Phone Sales peaked at $11.8 billion in 2007. That amount accounts for 146 million units sold by the end of 2007. NPD says that Motorola continued to dominate the market with the highest percentage of handsets sold.

"The mobile phone continues to grow as a key part of consumers' digital lives." said Ross Rubin, director of industry analysis for The NPD Group. "More consumers are relying on cell phones as their only phones and are willing to invest in their functionality and expression of style."

NPD says that Motorola had a 32% share in 2007, Samsung had a 17% share, LG had 16%, Nokia had 10% and Sanyo had 4%. Oddly there is no mention of Apple and its massive success with the iPhone.
