Numbers compiled by DigiTimes now have LG Electronics shipping over 100 million mobile handsets in 2008, whereas Motorola shipped 99.9 million which means LG now have that 3rd place spot.
Although LG only just out beat Motorola for 3rd, which now fall to 4th followed by Sony Ericsson at 5th, Nokia as expected still retains the top slot while Samsung comes in second.
