This market figure, I'd have to say, is the most optimistic number for ARM I have ever seen. As long as smartbooks are concerned, I haven't found anyone in the market research community saying that the Netbook vs. Smartbook nubmer would flip any time soon -- certainly in 2012 or even in 2014, for that matter. I recently did a research on the netbook, smartbook, MID market. See the story entitled "Netbook, smartbook, tablet PC: Can anybody straighten this out?" here: http://www.eetimes.com/showArticle.jhtml;?articleID=220200269 Even, the emergence of slim clients for cloud computing included, The Information Network's numbers may be a little unrealistic.

CharlieCL: ARM also refers to the ARM architecture used by many of ARM Ltd's partners, it's "everybody else" vesus Intel, not just ARM the company itself per se.
