CTIA: Camphone Market Comes Into Clearer Focus
Similar to the way a woodpecker diligently hammers away at a tree trunk, the camera phone market has been pecking away at the digital camera market for years now.
Seen as nothing more that a curiosity when first introduced in the early part of this decade, the category has slowly but surely evolved to the point where many of the newer devices are now capable of taking excellent pictures and are offering consumers a variety of new tools for sharing and archiving their images.
With both of the major wireless shows now past (Mobile World Congress/MWC and CTIA), the wave of higher-end camera phones continues to crest. Clearly, what was once considered an unimportant “add-on” feature, the ability for a cellphone to capture images is now front and center in the category.
