Analysts: 1 Billion PCs in use by end of 2008

It’s taken 27 years to reach 1 billion PCs in use, and market researchers say it will take only five to reach the next billion. Forrester Research is set to release a report Monday titled, “Worldwide PC Adoption Forecast to 2015,” saying that many of those next billion will be used by first-time PC users in emerging nations like Brazil, Russia, India and China. At least 775 million new PCs will be in use in those countries by 2015, according to Forrester.
