Relative mobile market numbers, with desktops included as well
Sales of smart phones exceed the combined sales notebooks, desktops, tablets and netbooks, by 15%. Thanks to Distro’s further analysis of data gathered by Calanys Research, the following sales figures apply to 2011:
- 488M smartphones
- 210M notebooks
- 112M desktops
- 63M tablets (pads)
- 30M netbooks.
Another way to look at this: add smartphones and tablets together and 2011 their sales were more than 50% greater than the combined sales of notebook, desktops and netbooks.
Mobility continues to change how, what and where we do it.
