A look at the post-PC world?

The figures on mobile device sales shown in this article are staggering while the PC market remains flat. But where is Microsoft in all of this?

As little ago as 2009, almost all online access was done via PCs and as almost all PCs run Windows that meant Microsoft’s share of the “connected device” market was pretty large: 80% or so. But as more and more smartphones and tablets have been sold, which almost entirely run non-Microsoft OSs, so that share has steadily declined ever since. It’s now down to 25% or so. Certainly, in terms of things like determining web standards, Microsoft is a much diminished influence.
