PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless An article at The Next Web points out that the latest marketshare numbers put Apple at the top of "PC" makers, and that some PC makers that don't have any tablet momentum are calling foul. It's "controversial" to count tablets as PCs, they say. The article points out various justifications for not categorizing tablets as personal computers, and then shoots them down. I must say, I find the argument compelling.

Even though a tablet would meet the definition of a general purpose computer, certain vendors place so many restrictions upon them that they are best thought of as appliances.

As for the PC bit, well, they do everything that most people would expect them to. So I guess they qualify for that honour.
