5 years ago

The year 2011 will go down in history of technology as the first year that sold more smartphones than personal computers. But the market for PC`s is growing.
The justification growth in sales of personal computers is the inclusion of tablets in this category by the analyst firm Canalys, responsible for studying and figures. Overall the market for tabeletes rose 274 per cent compared to 2010, driving the growth of PCs by 15 percent during 2011.
Consider a tablet as a personal computer is a designation with which not everyone agrees. But looking at the characteristics of mobile devices (processor, RAM, graphics accelerator, multimedia inputs and outputs) the truth is that a tablet is similar in many respects to a personal computer. The Prime Asus tablets are confirmation of this trend.
The 415 million PCs were sold out of 488 million smartphones sold. The operating system mobile phones grew by 62 percent over 2010. According to Chris Jones, Canalys vice president and chief responsible for examining "the low price of some smartphones helped increase the number of sales, but there has been a growing trend among consumers to surf the Web, consume content and make up attract applications for mobile devices. "
Featured in the universe to Apple as the manufacturer of smartphones that contributes most to the increase in sales results. The brand apple reached the level of 93 million iPhones sold in 2011, becoming the company that most smartphones sold during the year. Nokia lost the lead as the largest seller of mobile phones globally.
The Finnish company has however some reason to smile, as smartphone sales grew 17 percent last quarter compared with the third. The focus on operating system Windows Phone 7 and the launch of Nokia Lumia 800 and 710 are certainly the primary responsibility for recovery.
With regard to mobile operating systems, Android was king during the year 2011 to be present in 237 million phones sold, almost half the total. The OS of Google rose 244 percent compared with 2010. The analyst firm predicts that smartphone sales will slow in 2012 and that the manufacturers start betting on a higher profit on each device sold.
According to Canalys highlights the negative range for the Symbian platform that Nokia fell by 30% within one year and netbooks, which had negative growth of 25 percent. This confirms the theory that the market for computers designed for online browsing is supplanted by mobile phones and that in 2012 the Ultrabooks can make their first appearance in the overall count of personal computers.
