We all know the PC market is changing, and it isn't selling as many units as it used to, but then there are hundreds of millions of smartphones and tablets sold each year. Where one market shrinks and slowly dies, another emerges, making billions of dollars.




Well, one section of the market where PC still reigns king, is in college campuses. Market research firm Deloitte found that 82% of college students own computers and 80% of them own smartphones, but just 18% of them own a tablet. Deloitte's Brent Schoenbaum told MarketWatch: "The combination of smartphones and laptops makes the tablet redundant for students."
