Tablets will outship mobile PCs for the first time in 2013, according to Strategy Analytics. Their report, "Mobile Computing Device Cannibalization: The Game Has Changed", is forecasting that shipments of tablets in 2013 will reach 231 million, compared to 186 million Mobile PCs, a trend that will continue through 2017.

"The tablet has become firmly ingrained in the consumer mindset, and is now seen as one of the key go-to devices for consumers who want to undertake computing tasks on a mobile device." says Matt Wilkins, Director, Tablets and Wearables. "As a result, the processors architectures, operating systems, and form factor of the tablet are playing dominant roles in the MCD space"; as analyzed in this new research from Strategy Analytics.

Apple, Google, and Microsoft are battling it out for control of the mobile computing market; however, Strategy Analytics sees Google capturing 40% market share by 2017.

"The influence of the tablet on the mobile PC is clear to see, with new form factors such as 2-in-1’s being introduced in the PC market," notes Peter King, Director, Tablet and Touchscreen Strategies (TTS). "These new form factors are delivering some of the most interesting innovation we have seen in the PC market for some time."

Buuurrn microsuck! See why two in one devices don't mix yet it added up to this, a removable keyboard which you can't put away anywhere, a start button switching in between two looks for no reason, a stand for a laptop that keeps the screen from falling. Macs also outship pc's anyway. Pc was good in the 90s to me!
