Mobile WiMAX networks
Phil Solis, principal analyst for ABI Research, says, "The market for cellular-enabled consumer electronics devices will gather momentum in 2008 and 2009 with Qualcomm's Snapdragon platform. As mobile WiMAX networks increase their coverage, more WiMAX-only devices will be sold. And between WiMAX network deployments and devices using Qualcomm's Snapdragon platform or Freescale's MXC platform, the 2008-to-2009 time period will be critical for the development of this market."
Cellular connectivity in consumer electronics devices
Solis continues, "Qualcomm's Snapdragon platform should reduce dramatically the cost of including cellular connectivity in consumer electronics devices by bundling wide-area connectivity with short-range wireless technologies and a multimedia processor. Even so, this market is dealing with consumer electronics manufacturers who feel that even the integration of Wi-Fi is nearly cost-prohibitive."
Mobile consumer electronics
"The benefits outweigh the additional costs, but the challenge for vendors is to sell consumers on those benefits." By offering all the processing power and connectivity functionality (WPAN, WLAN, WWAN) that a mobile consumer electronics device would need, the Snapdragon platform should be an attractive package for consumer electronics manufacturers. Reference designs should be available by 4Q 2007, and products using the Snapdragon platform should be in the market during the 2008 time frame. Brazil, Mexico, and Venezuela have the greatest opportunities for mobile consumer electronics within Latin America, but pale in comparison with the Asia-Pacific and North American regions.
