Companies are expected to spend more money on cell phone parts than PC parts next year

The picture gets quite different if we take a look back. In 2008, for example, a total of $64.7 billion was invested in computer components, versus just $35.9 billion for phones - almost twofold difference! Since then, the global priorities have slowly been changing, leading IC Insights to believe that in 2013, companies are to spend about $70.7 billion on cell phone components, and "just" $65.1 billion on computer ones. Judging by the graph below, this trend is to continue, and while the PC industry isn't expected to just collapse in the near future, it is true that the cell phone market will see a much bigger progress during the following years.

PC is the big truck of our economic. Phone and Tablet is like a small car that cant/will never able replace truck when come to the real heavy duty. Programming and decoding think still require PC, without PC there wont be software for your phone.
