Asustek expects the Eee PC to continue to sell like hotcakes. The President of Asustek claims that they are on track to see a 50% growth rate for this year, which would end up producing for them around 6.6 million deployed
Eee PCs in the world. All these shipments move them towards 10 million within a few years.
The company believes that their willingness to adopt Celeron M CPUs will help them avoid issues with Atom shortages, the same thing they were saying early last month
. They are also helped by the fact they will have 3rd parties manufacturing the units for them. Apparently the increased competition from other vendors has not yet affected Asus.
