83% of Chinese Get Their Internet Fix From Smartphones

Yep. That’s straight from CNNIC, the China Internet Network Information Center.

Yes, they still use desktops for that but the preferred medium, even at home is the smartphone. Wintel is doomed. Too expensive. Too inflexible. Too immobile. Too impersonal. It’s not just the Chinese. A whole generation of humans is growing up knowing that M$ is unnecessary for human existence.

OK, so I don’t read Chinese… I identified stuff from an article on Digitimes. They get it. 527 million of the 632 million users of the Internet in China use smartphones. Why would they switch device when they get home?
