Happy New year! On the eve of annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES), here are my predctions for this year 2014.
PC market is not dead, it is just been festering. With over 50% sales in corporate environment, and because of the recession for last 5 years since 2008, many corporations have been holding off on making new purchases but they have to get off of Windows XP. As a result PC sales will rise but a new form factor will emerge. Its really going to be a hybrid design. You can call it a tablet with a detachable keyboard or notebook with a detachable screen. Its not a new form factor. Just look at Surface tablet lineup from Microsoft. Desktops will also transform into large screens with all components built into screen. Look at iMac for design clues.
