We're in the era of 'PC Plus,' says Deloitte
- UK: Wednesday, January 16 - 2013 at 07:23
Deloitte has said that while companies around the world have purchased 30 million tablet computers, only between 10 million and 15 million are actually being used as PC replacements. While the enterprise PC installed base is about 500 million, at most 15 million enterprise tablets are being used as someone's principal computing device. Fewer than five million of these are complete PC replacements, where employees had PCs taken away and now rely solely on tablets to do 100% of their work tasks, the report said. "We are not in a 'post-PC era'," said Deloitte Ireland partner Harry Goddard. "We are in the era of 'PC Plus'."
