The combined desk-based and mobile PC market in India totalled nearly 2.5 million units in the April June quarter, a 2.5 per cent increase over the same quarter last year.

"This growth was primarily driven by the mobile PC market which grew 17 per cent year on year in the second quarter of 2011. Economic factors such as rising interest rates and high inflation costs resulted in slower consumer demand.
