Apple Devices Set to Outsell Windows-Based Devices for the First Time Ever in 2013

Apple Devices Set to Outsell Windows-Based Devices for the First Time Ever in 2013

The rivalry between Apple and Microsoft has been one of the deepest and longest-lasting corporate rivalries of the consumer electronics industry – and up until now, Microsoft has dominated Apple in the number of Microsoft-based devices sold versus the number of Apple devices sold. According to research firm Gartner, however, that’s about to change.

The Financial Times, citing Gartner’s report (via BGR):

Consumers will buy more Apple devices than PCs, tablets and smartphones running Windows for the first time this year, analysts predict, underlining the urgency of the threat to Microsoft’s platform dominance in the shift from desktop to mobile.

Gartner, the market research group, forecast in a report released on Thursday that sales of tablets would overtake traditional desktops and laptops by 2015, while other analysts have predicted the shift could come even sooner.

That’s a pretty significant achievement for Apple. For more information, including specific figures, analysis of the tablet market vs. the PC market, and more, check out the original report over at Gartner.
