Android Will Kill the PCs, According to Analyst


Article date:
The PC market will collapse and iOS devices and Android will replace computers. These are the radical views of the analyst Horace Dediu Finn, who has gathered some facts and figures that he considers to be evident to support such a change in the market.

According to Dediu, fall and rise of personal computing can be seen in sales ratio between PCs and Macs, and iPhones and Android-equipped devices, both in sold units and market share. He says that smartphones are being integrated into "the personal computing space" and that "we are using them, instead of our computers." His views were published in the Fudzilla site.


iPhone started it, Android will finish it.

Despite the controversy, he admits that his claims are extreme. To Dediu's mind, there is no competition between PCs and smartphones, but the historical pattern of sales proves that the replacement of one another is near. Since 2007, when Apple introduced the iPhone, sales of mobile devices have exceeded the sales of notebooks.

The analyst included the company's smartphones from Apple on his charts, but he believes that it's Android devices that should have an effect, "matador" in sales of PCs. According to information gathered by Dediu, 352.8 million PCs were sold in 2011. For this year only Samsung (one of the major manufacturers of smartphones powered by Android) expects to sell 150 million devices with the OS of the robot.

According to Fudzilla, the negative economic factors are helping raise sales of mobile devices, as they are a relatively inexpensive investment. Other factors that drive its sales are connectivity, the growing number of cloud services and the fact that smartphones are able to meet many needs that were once seen only on computers.
