Dell's PC shipment expected to grow 20-25% in 2006, say Taiwan makers

Dell's PC shipments are likely to grow 20-25% on-year in 2006 despite concerns about its business outlook after a recent Bloomberg report stated that the company is postponing a planned analyst meeting from April to September and the cancellation of an estimated $700 million deal the company had with Royal Philips Electronics NV, according to sources at Taiwan PC makers. Dell is unlikely to adjust its projected order volumes to notebook contract makers in Taiwan simply due to a re-scheduling of its analyst meeting and the cancellation of its deal with Philips, the sources indicated, noting that Dell's total notebook shipments for 2006 are expected to top 14 million units.
