More Than 50 Percent of PCs Purchased for Users Under the Age of 15 Will Have Touchscreens by 2015

Will the next generation even need to know how to type?

Gartner: New research from Gartner shows that enterprises will be slow to adopt touchscreens, but parents will snatch them up for their children.

"What we're going to see is the younger generation beginning to use touchscreen computers ahead of enterprises," said Leslie Fiering, research vice president at Gartner. "By 2015, we expect more than 50 percent of PCs purchased for users under the age of 15 will have touchscreens, up from fewer than 2 percent in 2009. On the other hand, we are predicting that fewer than 10 percent of PCs sold to enterprises in 2015 for mainstream knowledge workers will have touchscreens."
