The coronavirus outbreak will severely affect China’s smart devices market including smartphone and PC shipments, according to analyst firm Canalys which says it has dramatically revised previous forecasts of a 7% decline in smartphone shipments to a 40% to-50% drop for smartphones and 20% for PCs - with the proviso that the situation recovers to pre-outbreak levels by the end of February.
The value of the North American wearables market reached US2.0 billion in Q2 2019, with shipments up 38% at 7.7 million units, according to a new report.
PC shipments to New Zealand grew 1.6% year-on-year in the third quarter, with 168,000 units being shipped, the research firm IDC says, adding that this jump was expected to be temporary.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
