HDMI takes over the mobile PC market. 300M HDMI-enabled units to ship in 2014 according to In-Stat

A new report from In-Stat  notes “a dramatic increase for HDMI in portable consumer devices, including HD camcorders and digital still cameras. In addition, on the PC side, HDMI’s share of mobile PCs, graphics cards, and PC monitors continued to increase. New In-Stat research forecasts that HDMI-enabled mobile PC shipments will surpass 300 million units in 2014.

“HDMI has made significant strides in mobile PCs over the past three years, since it has two big advantages in this market,” says Brian O’Rourke, Research Director at In-Stat. “Its small size is a better fit for size-conscious mobile PC OEMs. In addition, HDMI’s popularity across the CE segment makes HDMI a popular choice, especially for consumer mobile PCs. Dell, Sony, HP, Acer, and Toshiba all feature HDMI in their consumer notebook lines. Netbooks are adopting HDMI as well, particularly higher-end devices that are marketed as media devices, so that they can connect to an HDTV.”
