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.

It does not matter. Cell phone camera sensors have to be dirt cheap. The revenue might be less than 1 US cent per sensor. And the competition is fierce. And ... and thats the most important thing ... Foveon sensors so far have not shown to scale down all that well.
