Portable computer systems will continue to shine in coming years as consumers continue to seek consumer electronic products they can use anywhere, anytime.
The industry is positive about the potential for mobile computing devices in both developed and developing nations, thanks to rise in popularity of online social networking sites and growing online video consumption. In the upcoming years, people will continue to access their favorite Internet sites 'on-the-go', due to adoption of a dynamic and mobile lifestyle. Also, advancements in mobile computing technologies will support the rising popularity of notebooks and netbook PCs as consumers opt to make their personal computers more mobile. This trend is likely to continue as notebooks feature more customized options, broader connectivity options, enhanced energy-efficiency, while technology innovation delivers a more vibrant multimedia experience.
As stated by the new market research report on Mobile Computing, Laptop or Notebook computers are the primary source of revenues for the worldwide mobile computing market, driven by consumer demand, improved hardware specifications, and the shift to lower price points. Notebook personal computers are increasingly outpacing desktop PCs in terms of features, computing power and price. The overall demand for notebooks was upheld by promotion of low priced models by branded vendors as well as declined prices for key components and production capacity recovery. Smartphones, the second largest market for Mobile Computing is expected to experience significant growth during the period 2006-2015, driven largely by improvements in broadband mobile networks, decline in handset prices, as well as proliferation of Wi-Fi in mobile phones.
The global market for PDA devices will continue to decline as their core users opt for alternative products in search of expanded functionality. The decline in sales could be basically attributed to the rise of smartphones such as BlackBerry that are not only offering basic voice communication but also providing business computing and information applications such as Internet, email and other data processing applications. Another factor driving the PDA market to doldrums is the low replacement trend of current PDA devices with newer, higher-speed models.
Key players dominating the marketplace include Acer Inc, Apple Inc, ASUSTeK Computer Inc, Dell Inc, Elitegroup Computer Systems, Fujitsu Limited, General Dynamics Itronix, Hewlett-Packard Company, High Tech Computer Corporation, Lenovo Group Limited, LG Electronics Inc, Motion Computing Inc, Motorola Inc, Nokia Corporation, Palm Inc, Panasonic Corporation, Research In Motion Limited, Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, Sony Corporation, and Toshiba America Information Systems Inc among others.
