The Foveon or Sigma sensor - whatever you want call it - may just not scale in size or pixel number. It may just turn out that the Foveon design might not be the final design of a "true color sensor." It may be the original Foveon founders and engineers chose a small sensor - cell phone - target market.

FWIW my understanding of why Foveon "chose a small sensor - cell phone - target market" was simply the huge size of the international addressable market.

"Addressable market" : In other words, enormously more camera sensors get into cellphones than into cameras.
