The location-based services market has been one of the major location successes of the past 3 years, with ABI Research forecasting the total smartphone market to break US$4 Billion in 2012. However, opportunities are now emerging to extend the reach of LBS into other portable device categories. 

The growing threat of smartphones on the digital camera and gaming handheld markets, coupled with the emergence of the new tablet and eReader device categories, has created a new opportunity for location technologies and services. The question remains if LBS has a place on these devices and what types of applications will be successful. 

This report considers key drivers and inhibitors for each device market, forecasting the penetration of location technologies (GPS, Wi-Fi, cellular) as well as the unique mapping and location based services that will emerge.
