Apple CEO Tim Cook says tablet sales will surpass PC by 2015
Apple CEO Tim Cook puts 24 month time limit on the tablet market surpassing the PC market
During an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke about tablet market predictions, Android's many versions, and buying products with just your fingertip.
During the interview, Cook revealed his prediction on the timescale of the tablet market surpassing the PC market stating, "The tablet market in some ways is the smartphone market, just with a lot more players in it... I have always said that the tablet market was going to surpass the PC market. I was saying that well before it was viewed to be sane to say that. It's clear that we're 24 months away from that."
When speaking on Android's many versions coined as the "fragmentation" issue Cook expressed his opinion that Android has a problem, "That would be like me right now having in my pocket iOS 3. I can't imagine it."
He also spoke about the fingerprint sensor, a new feature on the iPhone 5S, which has the ability make purchases using a Touch ID on Apple's stores, "The first time that you buy something with your finger, it's profound."
He explains that it is one thing using it as a security feature but making purchases with your fingertip is "a more startling experience."
