Smartphone Processor Revenue to Grow to 21% CAGR

In-Stat expects worldwide smartphone processor revenue will have a CAGR of almost 21% from 2009-2015. In the last ten years, smartphones and phones have created a multi-billion dollar business where one did not exist before. The next 10 years will not see changes quite as dramatic as those in the last ten years. However, the evolution of the handset will continue at a fast pace.
