More Than Half of All Computers Sold Aren’t Computers Anymore

by Dave on February 3, 2011

3D growth chartAccording to a report by Deloitte (http://bit.ly/ifpo0y) more than half of all computers sold in 2011 will be mobile devices, like tablets, smartphones, and netbooks. That means these devices will outsell PCs for the first time ever. Yet PC sales haven’t slowed. They’re on target to grow 15 % in 2011 according to Deloitte.

The 2011 edition of Deloitte’s “Predictions for the Technology, Media, and Telecommunications (TMT)” is an effort to predict which technologies will have a significant impact over the next 12 to 18 months.

An important part of this change is that the 2011 technology market will be dominated by devices using different processors and chips and operating systems than those used for PCs over the past 30 years.

An article in PC World (http://bit.ly/dReSWn) predicts that network traffic will explode, driven partly by ambient video, like puppy cams, nanny cams and surveillance video.

Changing user needs, the increase in wireless devices and the expected increase in network traffic means network providers and managers must prepare for dramatically increased demands on their infrastructure and operations.
