Earlier this month during while we were in Taiwan covering Computex 2010 we had an opportunity to visit with the cofounder and Chairman of Kingston, David Sun. During the candid discussion he gave us some of his insight into the evolution of the desktop PC, laptops, and mobile devices. We also got a chance to hear how he and John Tu started the company and the idea that created a company with over revenues that have exceeded $4 billion a year.
"To start off, I asked David if he see's the DRAM market shrinking with less demand from desktop PC's. He said that he expects to see desktop PC use to continue on it's current level or to grow. With users of mobile devices needing someplace to store all of their data, this will most likely be a desktop PC. He told us that he sees laptop and netbook markets shrinking and tablet like devices growing, while smartphones will continue to explode."
