2009 Netbook Shipments Pass Expectations, 58 Million Forecast for 2010

36.3 million netbooks shipped in 2009.

ABI Research: Last year, ABI Research predicted that manufacturers would ship 35 million netbooks in 2009, a number considered unrealistically high by many. In actuality, PC makers shipped 36.3 million netbooks, surpassing the predictions.

Despite the growth in tablets, ABI predicts that tech companies will ship 58 million of the devices this year. They expect particularly strong sales in emerging markets such as China and India.
