Google has a lot of other things up their sleeves. They have the money to become a major palyer in the hardware segment. I honestly dont think they would have aquired shares of HIMX if not for other uses other than Glass. If Google sticks with their original 6% then Glass would probably be the only thing they would need HIMX for. If they buy the other 8% later than i think they have other plans. Just my opinion. I wonder if Motorola is using the HIMX chip in their new phones?
it wont sell 250 million units like the iphone or have a billion users like android BUT it will be used and will be popular hence why best buy deal is going down.
25-50 million at best BUT that is enormous to HIMX bottom line. I mean families might have a father,mother and 2 kids all with iphones but 1 pair of glass so I can see why it wouldn't be a big seller, but EVERY family will have 1 pair....that is still huge
