30% Of Memory Chip Production In 2013 Will Be Mobile

Last time I checked, most executables reside in RAM. If “The portion of mobile RAM to global production of memory chips will rise to 30% in 2013 compared to 21% in the previous year, buoyed by strong demand from the smartphone and tablet sectors” then a Hell of a lot of IT is running on mobile thingies these days. Since Wintel is going slowly in the mobile space, this will be a huge blow to the Wintel monopoly. Probably it means the monopoly will die this year. Good. Let’s hope OEMs, retailers and consumers come to the funeral.
