The worst of it is that the most popular smart phones and tablets do not use Windows. So people like Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, Dell and even RIM are excluded from this growth segment--unless new products kick in and become popular. As it is, their business is in decline and there is little they can do about it. The WinTel PC has been outmaneuvered.
