Canalys do consider the tablet computer part of PC market. Others make a distinction.

Larry hit it right on. Tablets and smartphones are not quite the same device as a full fledged PC but they are part of the same market, and for many people, they fill the bill such that they rarely, if ever, use their PC anymore because they do the things they need. I find that some things are a little tougher with the tablet or smartphone, but others are much simpler. There are still things the PC is needed for, but most things can be accomplished with relative ease.

It all depends on what you are trying to measure. Want to prove that things are looking down? Separate them and talk about how they are cannibalizing each other. If you want the chart to look up, add them together and throw in smartphones as well. Suddenly you have a bull market! Seriously, it seems to me that there is overlap between those categories. One way or the other, the number of devices per consumer seems to be going up. larrym

i think that tablet is a separate category itself just as ultrabook is. Combining PC with tablet is not justified as they have different selling points.

Tablet's and PC market seem to be somewhat mutually exclusive to me. At one point, analysts have said the tablet may hurt PC sales because of the similarity of the products. Now, with the estimated sales to 2015, the figure does indicate these 2 products are mutually exclusive. One may help the other to thrive. Yet, there is no indication the tablet will eat a chunk of PC market. Any comments?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
