They don't distinguish between tabs/pads and phones. That that I see is 
that lots of folks got a tablet, tried it and moved on to a new PC. They 
keep the tab by the sofa as a telly guide:

"IDC's Jay Chou said that as sales of smartphones and tablets have 
risen, consumers had not stopped using PCs, but merely replaced them 
less often. He said the market is now entering a "replacement cycle" 
which should lead it to growth."
