The technology industry is booming at and exponential rate and now sharing information is easier than ever before. Computers have evolved a long way from basic desktop PC's to hand held devices that are overloaded with functionality. Well looks like the new-age tablets are finally taking over the computer industry; According to a recent study conducted by the tech research giant Gartner tablet shipments are expected to rise by 67.9% whilst PC shipments including desktops and laptops is said to plummet by 10%.

This significant rise in the shipment of tablets whereas the demand for PC's is dropping shows a trend in consumer behaviour, people want easy access to all their technology needs from anywhere at any given time. This shows the importance of mobility and how it is a major aspect in current and emerging markets. The reduction in the demand for PC's and an increased demand for tablets is reflected by this need for mobility by consumers - Mobile Computing is the way forward.

A statement by the research vice president at Gartner Carolina Milanesi was that "Consumers want anytime-anywhere computing that allows them to consume and create content with ease, but also share and access that content from a different portfolio of products. Mobility is paramount in both mature and emerging markets".

The complete details of the research conducted by Gartner can be found on their website.

What this research also brings to light is that there is a significant increase in the need for software as well as online information to be compatible with these mobile devices.
