Laptop computer maker Asustek Computer Inc (華碩) expects its notebook shipments to grow in the first quarter next year thanks to recovering demand, a company executive said yesterday.
“Our notebook segment is booming now. Shipments have been growing since the beginning of September,” Asustek chief executive Jerry Shen (沈振來) told reporters on the sidelines of a launch event for the ZenFone Zoom handset in Taipei.
“Growth momentum is expected to extend into the first quarter of next year,” Shen said, without elaborating on the number of shipments.
On Nov. 11, Shen told investors that the company foresees shipments of PC products, including notebooks, increasing by almost 10 percent quarter-on-quarter to 5.8 million units in the fourth quarter. [FULL STORY]
