Posted on April 13, 2013 by vincent oliver
Apple devices are about to outsell devices running one of Microsoft’s operating systems, according to research firm Gartner.
From The Financial Times:
Consumers will buy more Apple devices than PCs, tablets and smartphones running Windows for the first time this year, analysts predict, underlining the urgency of the threat to Microsoft’s platform dominance in the shift from desktop to mobile.
Gartner, the market research group, forecast in a report released on Thursday that sales of tablets would overtake traditional desktops and laptops by 2015, while other analysts have predicted the shift could come even sooner.
