The Waves Of 64-bit ARM and Windows 8 Systems Are Going To Have An Impact

Table of Contents:

These two look to be rising waves that will be large and long. It could be a wild ride.

Apple's iPad family will continue to sell well but the overall impact of Microsoft's and Arm's announcement will have a much wider than even the popular iPad. This is because these other two items address more markets than the iPad that has a very large but focused audience.
