June 20, 2005 -
Mobile PCs are gaining market share and will account for over 25% of worldwide PCs in use in 2005—a near doubling from 13.7% in 1995. By 2010 the installed base of mobile PCs are projected to account for 36% of all PCs in-use.
The industrialized countries will have even higher mobile PC penetration. In the USA mobile PCs have grown from a market share of 15.4% in 1995 to nearly 30% in 2005 with further growth to 43% projected for 2010. Mobile PC sales are increasing even faster and will top 35% of total PC sales in the USA and 31.6% worldwide in 2005.
