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?

"Therefore no, Nokia isn't the largest computer manufacturer in the world and it will never be cause Meego is a pile of crap.


Nokia is currently the number one smartphone company in sales by a wide margin. As such, including smartphones into the computer category would make them one of the largest computer companies in the world.
"

That's what I was trying to say.
Yes Nokia is the largest smartphone manufacturer (for now at least), but most of those devices have nothing up against the likes of iOS 4 and Android 2.2. Most of these devices are running the Series 60 OS (Symbian 1, call it what you want), which is basically a joke.

Try to explain that using rational arguments instead of opion. What is the difference, besides that you don't like one of them?

Trying to separate converging markets is increasingly difficult, but onesided arguments from fanboys are not making it any easier.
