3D mobile devices predicted to surpass 148 million in 2015

Though the implementation of 3D on mobile devices is still in its infancy and requires considerably more advanced technical solution for both viewing and capturing 3D, research firm In-stat forecasts that the total number of 3D mobile devices will surpass 148 million units in 2015.

“Despite the advances in the technology, adoption of 3D in mobile devices is still likely to be relatively slow due to limitations in content, the potential of eye strain and headaches from viewing 3D content by some, and the additional cost for 3D content and devices,” says Jim McGregor, Chief Technology Strategist.

In-stat reckons that 3D mobile devices will increase demand for image sensors by 130%. Nearly 30% of all handheld game consoles will be 3D by 2015. In 2012, notebook PCs will be the first 3D enabled mobile device to reach 1 million units. And by 2014, 18% of all tablets will be 3D.
