Android, iPad & iPhone to eclipse desktop internet in 2011 (maybe)

from today's NYT:

"(Gartner) analysts anticipate that as soon as this year, mobile phones and tablets will eclipse desktop and laptop computers as the primary ways that people access the Internet."

And in schools???

Hahahahaha!

(link to come, I'm reading a "real" newspaper, or at least a paper one. And yes, I know the photo shows a kindle, not a real tablet, but I took it yesterday on BART [b4 I saw the news;)]

Well, I guess they were wrong about “as soon as this year” part. I certainly use a desktops and laptops, and the year is soon coming to an end. But overall, I think they've got a point, the tablets are hugely popular for internet access, and among teens especially.
