I knew it before: tablets were (only) fashion. But then I started to think I was wrong, as I have saw so many people (both consumers and business users) with such devices in their hands. (I even purchased a Surface™ myself – which is still amazing, and I still use it – but not as often as I originally thought I would.) Now I believe I was wrong when I said I was wrong: small and large screens seem to eventually be the only ones that matter as I don’t see people with tablets anymore (or not so often).
But there’s another story to link here. Recently I’ve seen a new type of PCs on the market – more or less powerful processing units with fast yet large enough SSD storage, marketed as Mini PCs. Wow, I said at first… But then I saw this: processing power and storage units seem to have become small enough so that phones will eventually replace Mini PCs completely when they are docked to large screens and when keyboards and pointing devices are connected to them. (At least when they get powered by Microsoft’s Windows® 10.)
