For the first time ever, smart phones such as Apple Inc.’s iPhone are outselling personal computers, according to a report by research group IDC that was released Monday.
Worldwide, consumer electronics makers shipped 100.9 million smart phones in the last three months of 2010, an 87 percent jump from a year earlier. PC shipments were weaker than expected, edging up just 3 percent to 92.1 million.
