Smartphone will out sell Desktops by 2010
According to this Switched article, analysts believe by 2010, smartphone sales will exceed desktops. Hence the reason why Dell and Asus have taken the plunge in smartphone development. The way I see it is that full size computers will still be around but will be left with professionals who need its supreme processing power for specialized tasks. Smartphones, netbooks and tabloids will be evolved to the point where average consumers can do "most" of the daily tasks ie. simple spreadsheet, writing a letter or book report, ecommerce, bill paying and use any "cloud-computing" solutions.
