AFP: Research firm NPD says that by 2016, manufacturers will sell more tablets than notebook PCs. The company predicts that notebook PC shipments will increase from 208 million in 2012 to 393 million by 2017. During the same time, tablet shipments will likely climb from 121 million in 2012 to 416 million in 2017.
