He is estimating notebook shipments in the second half will grow by 35 to 40 percent sequentially, and that overall shipments in 2009 will grow 25 to 30 year-on-year. Wang expects the outfit to become the largest notebook vendor in the world by 2010.
In related news, Wang has confirmed reports of panel supply issues hindering the Timeline CULV-notebook launch, but claims Acer has found a new panel supplier and that the issue will be resolved soon.
