Chart for total mobile phones in the largest markets

This is straight from the CIA World Factbook, a chart of the total number of mobile phones by country, and then ranked. Even treating the whole EU as one, in another year, China will surpass the European Union to have the most mobile phones of any market, and a year after that will probably hit a half-billion of them. The US is a distant third, soon to be fourth when India catches up and then hits a quarter-billion.
