@CLAIRVOYANT you are right, the major changes around us call for portable and mobile devices.

There is a fact of Tablet PC having a large development room, so does the performance of Tablet PC. But now PC seems to see no revovlutionary innovation, especially some PC manufacturers are changing development strategy, from manufacturing PC turning to mobile devices.

In the long run, i do think by the time benefits of adopting cloud innovation fully realised by many enterprises it would impact more on the sales of desktop PC, while it would leave desktop PC to only a few market segments - such as governments' agencies, banks and other financial firms.

Tablet PC + Desktop PC = Laptop.

Tablet PC's will never meet the performance levels of a desktop. However, I do forsee desktop PC sales declining but I believe there will always be some amount of demand for them, for high-end applications especially.

As we all known, the advert of Apple iPad brings great change to PC industry, resulting in increasing manufacturers like Android, Samsung, Lenovo all stepping into Tablet PC field and also leading to the weak PC industry; based the success of Tablet PC, it seems to show a trend of PC and Tablet PC integration.

This year, according to IHS iSuppli, PC shipments suffer the first decline with growth rate at only 1.2% since 2001. Regarding to next year, PC market still shows no good recovery phenomena excluding ultrabook will achieve certain growth but only accounts for 17% of notebook market; by contract, Tablet PC gets rapid development, even boosting related industries development during the gloomy year of 2012. Does the future of PC industry come to the situation of PC and Tablet PC integrating to one product?

In consumer electronics market, there is a significant direction of large-size screen. The large-size screen LED TV is increasing appealing to consumers; the large-size screen smartphone is gradually dominating smartphone market, even mobile phone market. And for Tablet PC, large-size screen moves Tablet PC more close to PC; with the performance of Tablet PC increasingly improving such as work operating capacity, there is possibility for Tablet PC replacing PC or integrating with PC. On October 26, the launch of Windows 8 also do not bring great hope to the PC market; contrarily, the now era of touch it brings, the surprising WindowsstyleUI and smooth touch experience all attract users from keyboard to touch screen, which undoubtedly brightens Tablet PC experience, reinforcing the pace of Tablet PC replacing PC at some extent. Moreover, in the future, the possible development of portable keyboard will further reduce the difference between Tablet PC and PC. As such, based on the advantages, it seems the future of Tablet PC replacing PC or integrating with PC is of large possibility.

In fact, the prosperity of Tablet PC and the slowdown of PC reflects the importance of innovation, and Tablet PC is a innovative PC product; therefore, if revolutionary innovation occurs in PC, then PC may re-get its domination, though we don't know where is the innovation point. Returning to the question: whether Tablet PC and PC will integrate to be one product? What's your idea?
