ASUS is having trouble shipping more EEE PCs because batteries for the unit are in short supply.
The firm told the Taipei Times that a fire in an LG factory would mean that even though it will ship five million of the units this year, it won’t be able to expand into other markets.
In June it will introduce an EEE PC with a larger, 8.9-inch screen and which will come with a choice of Linux or Windows XP.
Asustek is putting its bets on India as a future area for growth and has set up a Mumbai office with over 100 people, said the Taipei Times. ♣
