Why are tablets and smartphones insulated from tough economic conditions? | asymco

"My hypothesis is that the new products are solving new jobs for the users and those new solutions are trumping any “softness” in demand. In other words, an upgrade to an over-serving product will be deferred at the slightest excuse while an installation of an under-serving product that attacks an unsolved problem will be rationalized no matter the circumstances.

One product will be met with “Why should we buy it?” and the other by “Why shouldn’t we buy it?””
