Well, those "3g modems, projectors, cameras, synthesizers and a number of other peripherals" were specifically designed to work with desktops.
How many new R&D projects or startups do you know who target desktops-first? On the other hand increasingly more and more target mobile-first, and some do not even target desktops, or try to adapt/port their already available mobile solution (am looking at Hybris myself) to desktops. Porting to desktop is considered a nice-to-have, and is usually promoted by developers. IMO, as soon as mobile form factor gets big screens and keyboard, developers too will follow.
The market will adjust itself to lower the cost of mobiles, even at the expense of more expensive niche market desktops.
