    The PC and smartphone markets have plateaued, but PC and processor innovations are opening new opportunities to PC and smartphone makers.
    Mobile computing's evolution may result in a convergence of smartphone and PC manufacturers on innovative mobile PCs that blur the lines between smartphones and PCs. For years, the PC's decline reflected how consumer-focused slate-shaped smartphones and tablets devoured portions of the PC market.

    Still, as I wrote in 2016, the smartphone's iterative yearly advances reached a dead end in their pursuit of more PC-like functionality. The slate form factor combined with a light mobile OS limits their ability to encompass the scope of PC scenarios toward which mobile computing's headed. Thus, after 10 years, the inevitable plateauing of smartphone innovation is coinciding with the plateauing of the traditional PC market.

    Consequently, both PC and smartphone manufacturers are seeking ways to evolve personal computing which, powered by innovations from Qualcomm, Intel and AMD, is increasingly mobile and driven toward more creative and diverse form factors.
