Long before tablets started replacing laptops the use of music playback software like Amarok was in decline. Less and less people use a full desktop computer anywhere but the office. Instead laptops and ultra-portables became people's main machines. The size of HD based media-players compared to those in laptops and the general move towards legal downloads means the "local" music collection is likely to be less massive then before. Network Attached Storage and cloud drives offer data security and access from anywhere on the internet. Streaming services like spotify are even better since they have a massive collection and good dedicated software to access it. Yet it might not have all of your favorite artists or that classical collection you have ripped from a 30-CD box. There is a market for a music player that brings all these sources together. It's more usefull now then ever before. Amarok 3's core will be the best platform to build fully featured music players for any platform.
