IDC Confirms PC Sales Drop

Not many buyers for these.
As predicted IDC sales numbers for the last quarter show a massive drop in PC sales - far worse than most predictions. Whilst analysts were predicting year on year sales to have dropped by 8-10% the final figure was actually closer to 14%.

Overall just over 76 million PCs were sold.

To become the biggest selling platform Apple will need to improve on its sales of 75 million iOS devices, not completely impossible, but probably unlikely as that number was achieved over the Christmas period and traditionally Apple's sales weaken in the March and June reporting quarters.

This may mean that iOS doesn't get its moment in the sun as the biggest selling platform, with Android activations at 850,000 per day as of mid-February its likely will Google take the honour instead.
