Wistron expects to make a killing off 3D notebooks

We will rule the market
The next big thing will be 3D notebooks and the design manufacturer Wistron expects to take most of the market.
The Chinese-language Apply Daily, which we get for the spot the ball competition, quotes Brian Chong, chief of product planning in Wistron as saying that his outfit will get more than 90 per cent of 3D notebook orders in 2010. This is pretty much fighting talk as it assumed that competition will just fling up its arms and go away.
Wistron Corporation was the manufacturing arm of Acer Inc., which was spun off in 2000. Acer is ordering through Wistron but it also seems that HP, Dell, Sony and Lenovo will also place orders with the outfit. ASUS will reportedly contract Pegatron Technology was down to make two models. So it is not likely that everything will go Wistron's way.
3D notebooks are being touted as one of the next big things. Users in most cases will have to wear polarised glasses but will see their documents, charts and porn in glorious 3D.
