At least in India
There are signs that the hardware maker Dell is making a comeback. In India it has overtaken HP as the market leader for the first time in ages.
In India the July-September quarter shows a sales growth driven by both the consumer and commercial segments. A double-digit sequential growth of 18 per cent in overall India PC sales (quarter-on-quarter) points to the strength of the economic recovery and increasingly positive consumer sentiment.
Dell had a share of 9.8 per cent, followed by HP and Acer in second and third spots respectively during the third quarter of 2010. In the notebook PC segment, Dell retained its top position with a market share of 27 per cent, while HP and Acer remained in second and third places respectively. “
It is not clear why Dell has been taking a battering might be making a comeback, particularly in the highly competative Indian market, where everyone is fighting for a slice.
