Mobile Imaging Software Market to Surge in Coming Years: Parks Associates

Telecommunications Industry NewsAmericans will spend more than $500 million annually on mobile imaging applications by the year 2013, according to a recent study by Parks Associates.

By 2013, nearly 70% of handsets sold in the U.S. will come equipped with a camera of 2-megapixels or more, researchers predicted, noting that consumers will respond to this trend by making greater use of mobile imaging software, including photo-editing, photo-sharing, comparison shopping, and social networking applications.

“Recent trends, including the launch of Google’s Android MarketPlace and Apple’s success with the App Store, have revived interest in the camera phone platform among carriers, handset makers, and application developers,” commented Parks Associates’ director of mobile product research, Harry Wang. “Consumers want to do more with their phones, which makes this area fertile for service innovation.”
