Gartner: Tablets will replace the PC, set in 2013 by 70 percent to

We have already heard several times that it’s the PC industry on the collar and win the mobile operating systems like Android and iOS become increasingly important. Otherwise Gartner has now also can see and is also a forecast from which extends to the year 2017.

Already this year it is predicted that nearly 200 million tablets will be sold. About 197 million tablets are still facing about 315 million desktop PCs and notebooks for this year. The very next year, however, it has become clear approximated Tablets are then projected at 265 million, while PCs have shipped with 302 million copies should be.

(Can be as reliable a look so far into the future to be) As I said, the advance invoice to the year 2017 and then the latest tablets have suspended the classic PC: 467 million to 271 million in favor of tablets is the prediction.

When looking at the operating systems it looks even more striking in from Microsoft’s point of view. Android has already cut the ground from here Windows, should read: it did last year, significantly more Android devices sold than Windows machines. For this year, Gartner even assuming that 860 million Android devices, about 397 million Windows devices are facing – that is more than double of what can sell Redmond.

When the tablets we have seen this year, according to Gartner, an increase of 69.8 percent last year – it can be read about how wide the acceptance of tablets now is already in the mainstream, a growing trend. Many of the tasks that we still manage to date on desktop PC or Notebook, we can sometimes just as good – or even easier – take care of the tablet. With “ultra-mobile” devices such as the Microsoft Surface Pro while trying to continue to be present here and to tap market share, but generally it is an ominous development for the near-monopoly of the last decades.
