Many tablets being sold have better displays and hardware than pcs. And many tablets are sold  with keyboards.. Finally, are the touchscreen laptops being classified as tablets? Perhaps it makes more sense to classify as Microsoft, google, Linux, apple, or chrome...

Error - Needs Corrections

Hi Zewde - per the subject of this comment the following error in your article needs correcting as highlighted in the following sentence abstracted from ytour post:

"Global production of electronics will grow from $1.41 billion (should be trillion) in 2013 to $1.74 billion (ibid) by 2017, according to the 2014 edition of IC Insights' IC Market Drivers report"

The dollar amounts quoted for global electronics production should both be TRILLIONS not billions! The expected global semiconductor sales value for 2013 is forecasted to be larger than 300 billion for 2013 therefore requiring the electronics production value to be approximately an order of magnitude higher, that is, Billion => Trillion. Mike Cowan
