In the News An interesting discussion is currently raging through the world of computing, or more accurately, through the world of bloggers and analysts. It basically comes down to this: should the iPad be included in laptop and desktop sales figures? If it is included - Apple becomes the largest PC manufacturer in the United States. But, if the iPad should be included - why not the modern smartphone?

Smartphones' ancestors are Palmtops and Nokia 3210s and the smartphones' capacities are an evolution of that original functionality.

Dumb phones' ancestors perhaps, but a smartphone is the convergence point of a dumb phone and a PC; it has ancestors in both.
