As IT Pro Portal reports, estimations about the volume of PC shipments in 2013 and 2014 have been reduced 10 percent by Deutsche Bank. There is also an eight percent reduction for growth in these same years. The reason for the reduction is iPad deployments. Chris Whitmore of Deutsche Bank was reported by CNET as saying in a note to investors that Apple’s 64-bit iPad will add pressure to the PC market.
Apple’s A7 chip was recently called nothing more than a “marketing gimmick” by Qualcomm’s chief marketing officer. However, his words were concerning its need in a smartphone and he might have overlooked the implications of the addition of the A7 chip to the iPad and what it could do to the PC market.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson from Qualcomm has to repeal the statements of the company’s CMO, Anand Chandrasekher by calling his words “inaccurate” and acknowledging that ecosystem of the world of hardware and software is already advancing towards 64-bit, as it brings mobile users desktop class capabilities.
The provided correction of Chandrasekher’s apparently hasty words proves to some analysts that Qualcomm might soon head towards 64-bit as well.
