Study: GPS-enabled handset shipments rocketed by 100% in 2010

Nearly 100 per cent of 2G and 3G handsets shipped last year were enabled with GPS, according to new research from Berg Insight. The number of devices delivered by vendors increased almost 97 per cent in 2010 to 295 million units. Berg believes that, with a CAGR of over 28 per cent until 2015, handsets shipped with GPS are forecast to reach 940 million units. The research firm also claimed that performance will increase as further technology is added to the GPS mix, such as data from accelerometers, gyroscopes and altimeters. Article
