Best Buy, which is Americas national retailer for all things technology related have released some interesting statistics that show just how rapidly the gadget market is evolving.

While Microsoft has been struggling to make PC sales in the past, Best Buy announced that there had been a recent surge, probably due to the new XP operating system.

On the other end of the scale, tablets, which once took the market share have plummeted, whereas laptops have remain consistent.

“The tablets boomed and now they are crashing. The volume has really gone down in the last several months,” stated Hubert Joly, CEO of Best Buy.

Best Buy itself has also been experiencing losses as more and more people choose to purchase inventory online and directly from the manufacturer.

One thing the retailer can look forward to is the Fall release of the new iPhone which will be followed by a new phone from Samsung and Android.
