iPad hits Asus Eee PC sales

Netbook popularity plunges

Top three mobile application threats

Still not convinced that Apple's iPad is eating into sales of netbooks? Just ask netbook supremo Asus.

Last week, it revealed its netbook sales during Q2 were lower than those it recorded in Q1, and that it anticipates Q3 sales - which includes the back-to-school sales period, traditionally a good time for purveyors of low-cost laptops - will be lower still.

Eee PC sales hit 1.6m units in Q1, falling to 1.5m in Q2. Q3's total will fall to 1.4m units, Asus said, according to DigiTimes. Asus CEO Jerry Shen said the company will continue to punch out netbooks, but of course it has its own media tablet - now Android powered - in the works. ®
