Connected Device Shipments to Dwarf PCs by 2013

The connected devices revolution is coming. New research from iSuppli suggests that shipments of Internet-connected devices will overtake shipments of traditional Internet devices by 2013. If this occurs, consumers will more likely access the Web through a device like a connected TV rather than through a computer. iSuppli predicts that shipments of connected devices, such as Internet televisions, video game consoles, and Blu-ray players will triple by 2013 (503 million). This amount is forecast to be more than twice the number of PC shipments during the same time period. And by 2015, the gap will be even wider, suggesting a future where connecting to the Internet, viewing online content, placing video calls, and who knows what else, will be done through a wide variety of connected devices.
