The Coming PC Disruption

By Brad

Via John Paul Titlow of Read Write Web, a new report from the International Data Corporation (IDC) predicts the rise of tablets and smartphones — not to mention the widespread adoption of mobile broadband — will turn the PC industry on its head in the next four years. From IDC’s press release:

IDC also predicts the number of Internet users worldwide will hit 2.7 — or 40% of the population — by 2015.
