Tablet display shipments jump, top laptops in October

Quote:
Only days after a report anticipating a surge in tablet shipments, it's official: Tablet display shipments topped laptops in October, said NPD DisplaySearch today.

"In a milestone for the global industry, in October tablet PC panel shipments exceeded those of notebook PC panels," NPD DisplaySearch said today in a research note.

Because display panel shipments are always the leading indicator for device shipments, "it can be seen that tablet PCs are threatening to overtake notebooks," DisplaySearch said.

So, is this a snapshot of the laptop in decline or just a fluke?

Tablets in their current form will never completely render laptops obsolete, the former is primarily a consuming device while the latter is a productivity device in addition to being also a (much more comprehensive) consuming device.

That said, the information itself is very interesting. Does the data also include touchscreens used on Windows 8 laptops, or are those differentiated since they're laptops?

I don't understand. Everybody knew their is a huge Tablet market and Microsoft wants a big bite of the Apple. That is exactly the reason for Windows 8. When I upgrade from Windows 95, 98,XP all the way up to Windows 7 I didn't buy a new monitors. To watch monitor sales as a indication of operating system sales doesn't make sense to me.
