Samsung notebook sales

Samsung Electronics on Thursday announced it is planning on selling at least 2.5 times as many notebook computers worldwide in 2009 compared to last year. At a news conference in Seoul, South Korea, the hardware manufacturer said it aims to sell 5 million notebook PCs this year, a marked increase over the 2 million units it sold in 2008. At the same time, the electronics giant hopes to improve its number 10 standing in sales of notebooks to seventh.

Samsung is helped in its goals by entering the US notebook market last fall with the release of a complete line-up of notebooks. These included the 13.3-inch X360 and 14.1-inch X460 notebooks. There was also the 13.3-inch Q310, a 14-inch P460 and the 15.4-inch P560. The R610 adds a 16:9 aspect ratio to the 16-inch display, and there is also a 10.1-inch NC10 netbook.

More recently, Samsung launched the 12-inch NC20 netbook in the US, while the N110 and N120 were launched earlier today.
