FUD Zilla reports notebooks now account for 70 percent of the computer market in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and the number is expected to grow even higher in 2011.
In EMEA, Europe Middle east and Africa, seventy percent of computers that are currently being sold are notebooks. This number is likely to grow in 2011 and get to a new hight. Desktops are 30 percent of the market, and they will shrink further. The thirty percent number includes all those systems that are being treated as a desktop. The desktop will stay but its market share and importance is drastically decaying over the next years. We got this all from companies that are selling PC components, whose identity needs to remain in the shadow.
Times change and just as notebooks overtook desktops a few years back, tablets and smart phones combined might outsell notebooks at some points. The year 2013 seems to be at the top of analysts' minds, probably because they are hoping that we will forget their predictions by then if they don't pan out. Pocket PC is definitely a suitable name for super phones these days as some of them might end up faster than desktops just few years old. Remember some of the phones will come with dual core and ability to play full HD 1080p content and some quite demanding games.
