Instat Research: By 2009 10% of all Mobile Users will be Mobile Video Subscribers
In keeping with the theme on the blog watching viral and personally created online video, there is good new data from Instat Research out today on Mobile Video. In short, they predict that long form mobile video should come together by 2008-2009, and by 2009 1 out of 10 mobile subscribers will also be mobile video subscribers. Here is a snippet from the Instat press release:
“The market for long form mobile/portable video content (video content of greater than 30 minutes) is currently in an experimental phase, and will likely remain at this stage for at least two years, reports In-Stat. By 2008, however, the industry will begin to gain traction and demonstrate its long-term potential…”
- It is not clear if users will prefer an all-purpose multimedia cellular phone or separate voice and multimedia devices.
- Mobile video subscribers stand to represent over 10% of US wireless subscribers by 2009.
- Roughly one out of eight respondents in an In-Stat survey of mobile users expressed interest in mobile video for the cellular market.
