Thin client / server based computing growth in Asia-Pacific
The thin client market in the Asia-Pacific (including Japan), or APJ region, has recorded strong year-on-year growth, from 171,000 units in 2004 to 280,000 units in 2005, representing a 64% expansion. The growth has been fueled by a strong vendor push across the countries in the region, as well as growing acceptance of the thin client concept, as vendor presence increases across APJ.
