Actually that is not the case, it might be the case in the western
developed world, but in the developing world in places like China,
India and Africa in most cases the first an only device that a user
has is a smart phone or tablet due to the fact it's low power, runs
off batteries and has wireless connectivity, I think you'll find the
sale of these style of devices in those places out flanks everything
else, they are selling 100s of millions of them.
