Toshiba has lost its lead in the notebook market to IBM, if new figures from Dataquest are to be believed.

The research company released figures today which put Toshiba firmly in the back seat, taking third place behind IBM and Dell.

According to reports online, IBM has a 13.5 per cent market share, Dell has 13 per cent while Toshiba is chasing hard with 12.5 per cent.

Notebook sales are strong too, suggesting Toshiba may have a more serious problem than as tired market. The sector grew 21 per cent on the previous year - rather more than the 1.6 per cent growth in sales of desktops.

A spokeswoman for Toshiba expressed surprise: "No, I haven't seen that yet," she said. "Those figures don't normally come out until the 31st."

Meanwhile, Toshiba is planning the launch of a PDA this summer, but the details are as yet undecided, according to a company spokesman. Reports have tipped M$ PocketPC to be the operating system. ®
