Apple rolls their own, so that's a huge swath of the market not available to independent AP vendors. Which I think hurts Apple in the long run as they may not be looking and using the best available, but only that which internal folks can muster. Overall there will be a tremendous need to upgrade processor speeds/feeds/power as all kinds of new sensor networks and applications will require lots of efficient compute that current APs could not hope to handle.

Yes, we are nowhere near the peak of the mobile/smartphone market.

It is amazing how BlackBerry and Apple have created a new growth industry. I think this industry has a lot of upward momentum despite obvious sign of commoditization coming in coming years.
