There's no denying that smartphones and tablets are eating into the market for computers, laptops and netbooks. Nowadays there's far more power in the mobile phone in your pocket than went into NASA's lunar landing computer. The touch interface of mobile devices and tablets is also intuitive and easy to use, and all the signs are that the computer is moving away from the desktop and the lap, into the palms of our hands.
