    Mobile devices are definitely the new desktop...to an extent. I suspect we'll always have some form of "traditional" desktop environments. There are too many people in IT, development, and elsewhere that need bigger, faster, better computing options rather than fat-fingering data entry into a low-horsepower mobile device. Many of the same security challenges exist with mobile and quite a few are amplified. It's time we shift our thinking as I talk about here: http://securityonwheels.blogspot.com/2011/11/mobile-devices-are-new-desktop-what-to.html.

    I totally agree with Kevin, I am mobile centric, yet I require a laptop that can churn out some I/Os. Mind you laptops are turning into UltraBooks, and sooner than later, we will be seeing Ultrabooks shrinking in size, yet increasing in processing power. For the majority of people a tablet may suffice, but the laptop/ultra books aren't going anywhere anytime soon! And to think, interactive "paper" is on the horizon.
