Tablet Shipments Forecasts to Overtake PC Sales

Tablet Shipments to Overtake PC Sales

For the first time in history, tablet exports will hit the 84.1 million mark. However, the number of PCs amount to 83.1 million which is less than the former by a fair amount. 

Meanwhile, the overall market value for Net devices is to top up at $622.4 billion which is a 28% increase in 2013. Within two more years the same figure will swell to $735.1 billion, according to IDC

Smartphones and tablets seem to have taken the baton from PCs leaving them behind in the dust. The real cause of this is mobile contraptions which have revolutionized the whole process of Net access and usage. 

Megha Saini, Research Analyst with IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Smart Connected Device Tracker, said, "At a time when the smartphone and tablet markets are showing early signs of saturation, the emergence of lower-priced devices will be a game-changer. Introducing new handsets and tablet devices at cheaper price points along with special initiatives like trade-in programs from Apple and BestBuy will accelerate the upgrade cycle and expand the total addressable market overnight."

There are a new set of profit-makers and losers on the scene now. The new technology has been like a shot in the arm for Apple, Google and Samsung. 

However, HP, Microsoft and Intel have been facing dismal sales of their PCs. This was bound to happen as people shift from one mode of mechanism to another more efficient one. And as the market expands for tablets and smart phones, the prices of the devices are also falling rapidly, leading to a gold rush of sorts. 

Furthermore, trade-in programs have immensely benefitted the tablets and led to a reduction in popularity of PCs. The future belongs to the future itself. And PCs are not going to be a part of it.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
