Somewhat surprisingly, in a recent sales ranking for the period
July 30 - August 5, 2001, the Panasonic P503i (Quartz-Silver color,
non-folding type, weight 74 grams)  came top in front of the NEC N210i 
in various colors, which is a clam-shell folding type.

Surprisingly for me, the N503i is on No. 5 on that list (the ranking
lists the phones separately by colors) - I thought it'll be higher.
