Samsung Plans To Double Presence In Netbook Market

The manufacturer of the much-respected Samsung NC10 and NC20 netbooks is getting revved up to improve its position in the netbook market this year. It plans to sell a full 5 million notebooks in 2009, of which 4 million will be netbooks.

Kyu Uhm, VP of Sales and Marketing at Samsung, announced that the increases will be massive – at least double their previous numbers.

“Our current market share in netbooks is about 5 percent, and with sales of 4 million netbooks this year, we are aiming for a 15 percent market share.”

Samsung took No.10 in notebook sales last year, but Uhm says they’re now poised to take No. 7.
