MEMS gyroscopes to find their way into smartphones in 2009

The leading handset vendors are planning to incorporate MEMS gyroscopes into their smartphone devices starting 2009, according to market sources.

To make their mobile devices appeal to more consumers, smartphones launched by Nokia, Samsung Electronics, Motorola, LG Electronics, Sony Ericsson and Apple, are all expected to come with MEMS gyroscopes in 2009, the sources said.

With continuing efforts to reduce their production costs, makers will be able to turn out MEMS gyroscopes that will account for approximately only 3% of the entire production costs of smartphone manufacturing, the sources indicated.

Handset vendors, which have already incorporated MEMS G-sensors into smartphones, will be more willing to add MEMS gyroscopes into their mobile devices once prices drop to more affordable levels, said the sources.
