MID sales are very disappointing

Posted on Friday, June 05 2009 @ 13:25:07 CEST by

Sources at MID makers told DigiTimes that sales of these portable Internet devices are very disappointing. Since the launch of the Intel Menlow platform less than 30,000 units have been sold worldwide, just a fraction of Intel's estimate of 150,000-200,000 units.
Intel responded saying that it cannot comment directly on market speculation as it is currently in a quiet period pending the announcement of its second-quarter results. The company added in saying that mobile Internet devices (MIDs) are a new category of Internet-centric products which it believes have great potential.

The disappointing sales were mainly due to the economic downturn which made the devices seem unaffordable, as well as the slow-building popularity of 3G applications, the sources claimed.
