a low level desktop can be had for a couple hundred, a phone is about double that, not counting the docking station.
Low-level phones are already below $100. They are not very functional, though. Add the fact that you can replace desktop with a phone (if phone is fast enough) but can not replace phone with a desktop… the writings are on the wall.
the workstation market didn't vanish, it was just replaced by newer systems that outperformed the old ones. High end workstations are still around, they just have x86 chips in them that outperform the RISC based chips that were there before.
Ah, no worries, then. Desktop will not die, just Windows/X/Wayland/etc will die. We will all use Android-based desktop but it'll be just a replacement of desktops with a newer systems which outperform the old ones. Got that. Makes sense.
