Apple Now Number One Mobile PC Maker

"2010 was a breakout year for Apple's iPad. When it first came out, we dared to question it, but one year later the device is undoubtedly a success. Today, statistics from DisplaySearch show that the iPad was not only a success, but also propelled Apple to the top of the list of mobile PC makers."

10.2 million units shipped by Apple in Q4 2010. These numbers include laptops and iPads, but not mobile phones. Competition is arriving on the scene, but Apple has a pretty impressive lead. This percentage is, of course, certainly bolstered by iPad sales, but according to the story, notebook shipments "widely exceed the industry average growth rate" as well. I'm looking forward to what Apple has in store over the next few months to try to keep the competition in check.

Is The iPad a Mobile PC?

"Recently, 'ZDNet' asked, "Should the iPad count as a mobile PC? And I say 'certainly.' After all, DisplaySearch rightfully put the Apple tablet in the computerC category with its Monday release of the 'Quarterly Mobile PC Shipment and Forecast Report '"

By putting the iPad in the Mobile PC category, the report gives Apple the number one spot in North America and the number three spot worldwide when it comes to market share. This lists puts all tablets in the mobile PC category and doesn't separate them out, and should they really? I mean, it is a mobile PC when it comes right down to it. Sure, the iPad falls under the tablet category, but that is just a subset of a larger category, namely the mobile PC market. What are your thoughts?
