CSR claims it continues to offer the strongest Bluetooth product range to mobile phone designers, a claim it backs up with the fact that 99 out of the 226 phone designs from top tier phone makers featured its technology.

According to ceo John Scarisbrick: "CSR has delivered another year of strong growth in revenues and profits despite challenging market conditions in our second half. We have maintained our share of design win market share at around 60% and our unit market share at more than 50%. Overall, the Bluetooth market continued to grow robustly, both in mobile phones and in an increasing range of non cellular applications. Bluetooth attach rates continue to grow strongly."
