Trend: 3D Smartphones?

Tue Nov 30, 2010 - 5:48 PM EST - By Annie Latham

According to a recent report by research firm, In-Stat, there is a market for 3D-enabled cell phones. The number being thrown around is 60 million units by 2014.

Pretty much, this is due to the availability of technology, not necessarily demand. Stephanie Ethier, In-Stat senior analyst remarked, "Due to advancements in autostereoscopic 3D technology, a type of 3D technology that does not require glasses to view 3D images, 3D technology is finding its way into mobile devices."

"The more predictable viewing distance of mobile devices enables a compelling and convenient 3D experience. Additionally, many of the chipsets found in today's smartphones have the processing power to handle 3D content; therefore the smartphones promise the largest opportunity for mobile 3D technology suppliers over the next five years."

If you want to learn more, In-Stat's new research, 3D in Mobile Devices: 3D Adoption Will Be Highest in Smartphone, Handheld Gaming, and Tablet PC Markets : (#IN1004894ID), is one of the first reports to discuss the opportunities for 3D in mobile devices (smartphones, handheld game consoles, tablet PCs, notebook PCs, digital photo frames, and portable media players).
