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?

The iPod isn't a phone, so we should include it then? Besides, you can use an iPad (or a desktop or laptop while we're at it) to make phone calls.

But I can use a headset with a mic and Skype to make calls with my iPod Touch...

And, if a future iPad has voice calling (in the traditional mobile sense, not VOIP) does it suddenly become not a PC?
