Interesting and positive story Junko...but what happens to Ambarella when Apple or Samsung decide to integrate that camera into the next gen smart phone? Kris

Hi, Kris. Precisely for that reason, Ambarella walked away from the smartphone market. Instead, the company discovered a segment (tiny, wireless sports cameras -- sans displays of their own -- that you can wear on your vest or helmet, for example)that takes advantage of the smartphone. But of course, if you are saying that those tiny wearable sports cames are going to become smartphones, yes, that could be a problem.

thank you Junko...yes, if they are truly successful and wireless sport cameras are purchased in large numbers a smartphone company can integrate this in...not an easy strategy to execute, you need to stay in the niche but you don't want your niche to become too large

You can integrate a lot. But does it make sense? When I go skiing I will not clip my smartphone to my helmet. There a small WIFI camera makes sense.

Using a phone as a dumb monitor is one of the best innovations I've seen in a while. You only need the display long enough to verify operation so why burden the consumer with the added cost of it. People tend to upgrade their phones every 2~3 years, but the camera should easily outlive that and still be useful. Why didn't I think of that?

I think people judges the quality of operating system and software along with processors and other hardware configuration when buying a smart phone. App developers like https://gripd.com/ are really making smart phone to a replacement option for laptops and desktops.

I thought it was going to be some boring old post, but it really compensated for my time. I will post a link to this page on my https://twitter-followers-buy.com/ blog. I am sure my visitors will find that very useful.

I work in security research and management. Let me tell you folks, this is design chip has numerous vulnerabilities. I think an experienced chipmaker can easily defragment the information if he has access to one. Thanks for this post! http://www.ordergripgo.com/buy-gripgo/use-gripgo-and-ensure-safety/
