+ - Smart Phones Outsell Computers-> 1

Submitted by Archangel Michael
Archangel Michael (180766) writes "Smart phones have, for the first time, out sold computers.

For me, this is a milestone really worth mentioning, as it clearly indicates that smart communication devices are replacing computers. I know my phone can do some 65-80% of what I used to do on my computer.

In related news, Apple is slated to become the most valuable company in the world, partially based on its iPhone sales.

Smart Phones Outsell Computers

  • While interesting, I don't think I would deduce that smart phones are, in any way, "replacing" computers.

    Smart phones are probably replaced much more often than a PC simply because of the additional abuse they take. They're tossed around, carried everywhere, every day, dropped, etc. Even the average laptop has it much easier. On top of that, more and more smart phone choices are available now than when that market was younger (not only physical devices, but different OS' too). I don't know the last time

I think there's a world market for about five computers. -- attr. Thomas J. Watson (Chairman of the Board, IBM), 1943
