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.

Yes, you are 100% right. A computing device is a computer and by definition a simple calculator is a computer because it has the ability to compute. I have four Android devices at home and an ipod and I can tell you one thing. A tablet is not a Lop-top, is not a notebook and most definitely it is not a Desktop. Make no mistake.
