51.3 m! Out of which Apple expects themselves to sell around 40 m units(Foxconn is building a plant for manufacturing iPad with 40m capcity per year) So everyone else put together sells 10-20 m? Why am i getting a feeling that the tablet market projections are overrated?

Whether those projections are overstated or not, it will be very interesting to see how successful the non-Apple tablets are next year.

Where is this headed? What will happen 10 years from now? No more new desktop systems or even laptops? Almost all will carry around these iPad-like devices - that have cameras, that have pico projectors integrated, possibly have several medical/lifestyle apps included, that will have sophisticated authentication (iris scan etc)? Or, perhaps people will start having these devices implanted in them, so they don't have to carry anything at all!! Devices that will use your own senses to capture information, perhaps?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
