Hi guys, I'm doing a research on tablets for college and I came across this: “Within five years, I predict that it will be the most popular form of PC sold in America” - Bill Gates, 2001 The link is a research on tablets sold in 2005(1 million worldwide) against Gates's prediction when he launch the tablet PC in 2001. There is also this: “First, he said[Steve Jobs], tablet computers were not a big enough market for Apple to spend its limited resources chasing. And even if the market grew, it would not reach a size to be of interest. The form factor was all wrong. Apple was more interested in defining markets than trying to catch other companies that were busy trying to create a market for questionable products.” The article has been written in 2007.
