DigiTimes reports D-Link, Linksys and Netgear aren't planning any significant price cuts on 802.11n products this quarter.
he three leading branded consumer networking device vendors in North America – D-Link, Linksys ( a division of Cisco Systems) and Netgear – have mostly kept the price of consumer networking devices, especially 802.11n products, unchanged recently instead of resorting to aggressive pricing strategy to boost sales during the year-end peak season, according to industry sources.

The three leading vendors are still looking for more concrete indicators that can clearly indicate how strong the buying strength will be for the current season, the sources stressed, noting that consumers may start seeing discount offers from the vendors in early 2008 if sales do not pick up as expected in the following weeks.
