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?

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?
