The trends of mobility and cloud are affecting the hardware market as much as software, creating winners and losers both at the corporate and the sector level. The Smart phones market continues to expand rapidly, driven by increasing take up of mid to low range models in emerging nations such as India and China. While tablets are continuing to grow, the PC and Laptop sales have stagnated, without going into the type of precipitous decline many have predicted.
