"Connected portable consumer electronics devices, including connected ereaders, portable media players, and portable navigation devices, offer value to consumers with immediate access to compelling content in purpose-built device form factors optimized for a high-quality, focused consumption experience. However, these device categories are under pressure from a range of multipurpose substitute products such as smartphones, portable PCs, and media tablets, which will limit demand during and beyond the forecast period." ?
