This IDC study tracks and forecasts the worldwide market attach rates for wireless communications and connectivity interfaces and technologies embedded in PCs from 2012 to 2017.
As the world becomes more mobile and connected simultaneously, wireless communications and connectivity technologies will play a vital role in shaping PCs' new role in the connected ecosystem. Connectivity technologies enable PCs to remain more frequently connected, while communications technologies enable new applications between devices.
"The computing world is moving toward a more connected infrastructure," says Linn Huang, IDC's senior research analyst for Clients and Displays. "The PC industry is at an inflection point in which its relevancy will no longer be solely defined by hardware performance but rather by its usefulness within the context of a connected ecosystem. Wireless technologies will undoubtedly play an important role in this direction."
