PCs will still be important claims Microsoft

Tablets and mobiles are for consumers
Top Microsoft executive Orlando Ayala said that PCs will remain important even if there is growth in sales of tablet devices and mobile phones.

Talking to Bloomberg, Ayala said that more smartphones are going to come and continue to grow very fast. Tablets are going to grow too, but remember that this is sometimes too focused on the device and people should be focusing on the scenario.

He said that tablets were good for consuming content but were rubbish at producing it. PCs are actually good for mostly producing content.

Ayala said you will not see a person producing a large spreadsheet in a phone or in a tablet, but you will see them doing that on PC. He pointed out that Windows 7 already has 350 million users in less than a year and this means that the PC will continue to be very relevant, even though tablets and phones will continue to grow.
