38% of all mobile phones sold in 2011 supported GPS, claims Berg Insight, and 33% had built-in Wi-Fi. While up sharply from 2010 levels, those levels suggest Bluetooth/Wi-Fi/GPS "combo chip" leader BRCM still has room to expand (though competition is picking up). Also, in spite of tepid early interest in NFC technology, Berg estimates shipments of NFC-enabled phones will grow from 30M in 2011 to 700M in 2016. BRCM and NXPI are each targeting the NFC chip market.
