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.
