IDC forecasts mass mobile chipset growth
A new report from analyst firm IDC has predicted mobile chipsets will grow hugely over the next four years, spurring on the adoption of future technologies.
Mobile device chipsets to enable connectivity between phones and to broadband are on the rise and will continue to be for the next four years, according to an analyst firm.
The growth will be predominantly driven by their incorporation into portable PCs and netbooks and will help with the transition from 2G and 2.5G up to 3.5G and 4G technologies, along with the rollout of LTE, according to IDC.
Flint Pulskamp, a wireless semiconductor analyst at IDC, said in a statement: "[Mobile] broadband chipsets can provide the all-important data connectivity to other devices, especially to the internet, that consumers are increasingly demanding as they migrate from fixed/wired devices to mobile/handheld devices."
