Most people won't ever own a PC, says Elop

Stephen Elop, former Nokia CEO and now executive vice president of the Devices Group at Microsoft has said that a majority of the people do not own a PC. Microsoft-owned Nokia are not looking at the PC market to expand its presence.

"The vast majority of people do not have, nor will they ever have a personal computer. They haven't been exposed to Windows or Office, or anything like that, and in their lives it's unlikely that they will," Elop.

He said this week while speaking about emerging markets in a statement in which he announced the completion of the Nokia Devices and Services business acquisition by Microsoft.

He also said that such people will more likely be exposed to sevices like Skype instead of Office running on a PC. Satya Nadella, the new CEO of Microsoft is also focusing on cloud computing. He also indicated that PCs are outdated and the future is in the cloud computing. Microsoft has been a hardware company for a long time but it has been turning into a cloud and services firm.
