ECS to supply Nokia
Taiwanese Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) may supply Nokia with its first netbook products, as the two companies are reported by DigiTimes on Monday to be in talks regarding the matter. A Chinese daily newspaper, the Economic Daily News, cites sources at ECS that maintain the talks will conclude this quarter.
At the same time, the paper maintains Taiwan-based telecoms provider Far EasTone Telecommunications (FET) has placed orders from ECS to manufacture FET-branded netbooks. The initial expected shipment of a few thousand examples is expected to come during the second or third quarter of the year.
