November 9th, 2010

Global Information Inc. would like to present a new market research report, "Mobile Video Calling: Market Analysis and Technology Adoption Estimates" by In-Stat.

Several attempts have been made to develop and commercialize video telephony. Most ventures have proven unsuccessful. However, the launch of mobile devices featuring front-facing cameras and pre-loaded mobile calling applications, interest in making real-time video calls on mobile phones has reemerged to the point where In-Stat projects mobile video calling revenue will exceed $1 billion by 2015.

"The market for mobile video calling is hardly new," says Frank Dickson, VP, Mobile Internet. "What is new is implementing mobile video calling over IP in a significant way. The Apples launch of the iPhone 4 and Facetime marks the point at which the competition for mobile video calling dominance began in earnest. Apples capability to revolutionize the mobile video calling market is very real and no one in the ecosystem wants to be left behind."
