Michael Dell announced last week that the growth of mobile devices lmike notebooks is happening faster than expected, especially in emerging markets:
"The transition to notebooks, mobility has been faster than even the esteemed analysts at Gartner predicted," Dell said at a conference organized by technology research firm Gartner.

"I think it's going to continue," Dell said. "The other X factor in this -- emerging markets have been going to mobile at a faster rate than anyone anticipated, and you have also this global boom in the economy, particularly out of the U.S., fueled by small business and consumers who are gobbling up notebooks, so a big priority for us and a big change in how the market is shaped," he said.

Notebook personal computers have become more powerful and the ability to connect to the Internet and private networks has been improving, thanks to a variety of technologies. Personal devices have also been proliferating, even in emerging economies.
