Smartphones Set To Displace PCs

There were almost as many smartphones as PCs produced in 2010 and the rate of growth suggests this year more smartphones will be produced than PCs. Probably smartphone production exceeded notebook production in 2010. Smartphones in use are expected to exceed PCs in use long before 2015.

see Smartphone shipments neared 300 million in 2010

Rate of growth of shipments of PCs has been around 10% per annum but shipments of smartphones grew 74% in 2010 and is expected to grow by 32% per annum from now on.
