II read something that said that the Samsung "Galaxy" type of smartphone (tends to be the most expensive phone with all providers) sold over 5 million in Q4. If true, it's more than half of their smartphone sales...

I wonder what the numbers for tablets are. Would they beat PC too?

Great. The numbers just reaffirms the end of PC Era & WINTEL. Can we get the predictions for next few years for PC & smartphone markets? Hope to see a lot of market disruptions in coming years :)

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.
