In-Stat: by 2014, there will be 20 million devices with embedded pico projectors
Update: In-Stat has issued a correction to their PR: they say that by 2014, there will be 20 million devicew with pico-projectors, not 2.3 billion (!) as they said in the original PR. That makes more sense...
In-Stat has released a new report (Pico Projectors: One Reason Bigger Isn't Better), in which they forecast that by 2014 there will be 20 million devices with embedded pico projector modules. Mobile phones will account to over 90% of that.
"Although the integration of 'pico' projectors will occur across the entire CE device spectrum, the biggest push will come from the mobile handset segment," says Frank Dickson, VP Mobile Internet Research. "The reality is that the mobile handset market is measured in billions, creating massive opportunities for component manufactures. For pico projectors, what makes it even more attractive is that the market is hypercompetitive, with manufacturers always aggressively looking to add new features to create differentiation."
