Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 + Microsoft Windows 10 = Cellular PCs

3Q 2017

The ARM Architecture chipsets dominate the mobile market. Well-established silicon processor providers, including Intel, have attempted to compete against the ARM platform, yet mobile devices remain an exclusive market to ARM licensees with more than 1 billion units annually that build their own chipsets. ARM-based processors have been able to deliver an acceptable level of performance within the battery-powered envelope needed to achieve user satisfaction that has not been replicable by non-ARM architectures.

Smartphone Replacement Cycles

Despite close to two billion smartphones being sold globally this year, the market is becoming increasingly commoditized and is clearly reaching a level of saturation. In such a highly competitive market, there are few companies that are able to successfully maintain margins, while others have fallen by the wayside. It will be those that can control costs, create quick and sustainable differentiation, and establish new business models that will remain competitive and resilient to these expected ongoing market pressures. In light of this development, our webinar will explore the major trends and influences that will impact, drive, and evolve the market over the coming years. We will share some of our top-level forecasts, as well as how we envision smartphone vendors will be able to create demand in the future.
