Eee beats sales prediction

The Eee PC is proving to be selling even better than predicted by analysts, the computer's maker claims. ASUS says that in less than three months it has sold just short of 350,000 Eees worldwide, beating 300,000-unit estimates made by unspecified third parties. Either number would be unusually high for a notebook, especially when only part of a company's collection; this may affect forecast totals for January, which were last pegged at just 400,000.

ASUS has also announced that in early 2008, it will begin selling the Eee in new locations. North Americans will finally be able to buy an Eee in Best Buy stores, while Japan will soon get its very first versions of the computer. ASUS recently unveiled its low-cost 2G Eees, which come in either blue or green colors. [via DigiTimes]
