ABI ResearchCamera phones steals low-end digital camera market : Within two years, low-end camera phones will take much of the market share now held by low-end digital cameras. ABI Research principal analyst of global wireless operator research Kenneth Hyers says, "We believe that within the next two years, the quality of a mobile phone camera will be such that people won't need low-end digital cameras. This will dramatically impact camera sales." ABI Research's new study "Mobile Phone Imaging: Opportunities for Driving Usage of Camera Phones through Click/Send/Print" identifies the drivers for camera phone growth, explains how mobile imaging will evolve, and discusses why camera phones will displace portions of the digital camera market.
Camera phones steals low-end digital camera marketCamera Megapixel Race
Within a short period, says Hyers, the typical 1.3 megapixel camera phone will be ubiquitous, and 5 megapixel models will not be uncommon. "We are in the midst of a megapixel race," he adds, "and by early 2006, 1.3 megapixel models will outsell VGA camera phones; in the following years, two-, three- and four-megapixel devices will replace the lower specification models." At the higher end of the range, the rest of the camera phone components grow in importance: is the software sufficient to make sense of the data? Is the lens good? Is the zoom accurate?

Targeting the low end of the market
Hyers believes that the market will organize itself in tiers of quality. "Certain manufacturers, such as Motorola, are targeting the low end of the market, which is fine for getting enough inexpensive devices out there. But you've also got to have some higher-end models with greater resolution and better lenses, such as models being produced by Sony Ericcson, Samsung and Nokia, which establish them in consumers' minds as makers of prestige, high-quality imaging devices."
