  • Big Seven” Smartphone Applications to Drive Future Hardware Designs

    Published on August 16, 2010

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.– Smartphone manufacturers need to accommodate seven core smartphone applications, the “Big Seven,” in their next-generation handset designs, according to In-Stat (www.in-stat.com). These big seven applications include email, games, social networking, instant messaging, mapping & directions, music & radio, and weather. Combined, the big seven will account for 7 billion downloads worldwide in 2014.

    “In-Stat tracks 26 different categories of smartphone applications,” says Frank Dickson, VP of Research. “A designer can optimize a handset for any one of the application categories. However, it’s the big seven applications that phone designers need to accommodate in each and every device.”
