ABI Research Says 3D Will Make a Splash in Mobile Market

Dec 21, 2010

According to a report released by ABI Research, mobile devices might turn out to be the best delivery method for bringing 3D technology into the mainstream market. The company contends that 3D mobile devices will comprise over 11% of the total mobile devices market by 2015.

The company's report lays out three key areas that could drive 3D in the mobile market: the creation of user-generated 3D content by integrated video and still cameras, the playback of 3D content, and 3D gaming. Some 3D devices will also support the conversion of 2D content to 3D content, according to the report, which also notes that some notebooks and smartphones are already shipping with 3D capabilities, primarily in areas such as Japan.
