The anti-Heins: Yankee Group sees the tablet market growing 5X by 2017

BlackBerry PlayBook slate. Here is a company whose phones were known for their intuitive email capabilities and were used all over the world as a business tool. So what can you think when the PlayBook launched sans an email client and a calendar? That blunder was committed by previous management, but it still must have left a bad taste in the current CEO's mouth.
On the other hand, the Yankee Group is wildly bullish on the tablet market. The research and analysis group sees tablet shipments rising from 233 million units this year to 1.094 billion units in 2017. That is a compounded annual growth rate of 36%.
So which opinion do you think will prove to be accurate?

It's true that in 5 years time it's very likely for tablets to reach or even exceed desktop/laptop performance. So for gaming it can be a true alternative by that time. However, it's a different story for work-related tasks. Just for example, say SQL databases. It's used by a lot of companies around the world and these companies spend millions to have SQL as long term investments. It's not something you replace yearly. It's written for x86 and unless a way is found for ARM based chips to be able to manipulate x86 programs x86 will stay.

YES Agreed with you ... :) I have PC with core i7 procesor and 16GB RAM and guest what when I play the ultra HD movie? It like I'm watching movie in slow motion. If Samsung or HTC or SONY produce phone or tablet with the snapdaragon 800, how shame will be the PC technology right?

I don't think tablets will go away because Ultimate Performance Users will get a DeskTop PC MidRange Performance Users will get a LapTop PC Minimum Performance Users will get a Tablet PC And then Everyone will get a smartphone/phone I'll take the laptop and tablet
