According to the latest market data from ABI Research, almost 35 million netbooks will be shipped by manufacturers in 2009.

The research group further noted that ASUS dominated the netbook category in 2007 when it debuted the Eee PC, and Acer made a big push in Q4 2008 to lead the second year.

"74 percent of 2008 netbook shipments bore the brands of three vendors: Acer, ASUS, and Samsung," says senior analyst Jeff Orr. "However, the rapid growth of netbooks as a second computer in developed markets will be eclipsed in coming years by vendors targeting developing nations and first Internet PCs at home."

The report says that while several netbook vendors are recognizable brands from the laptop and desktop computing markets, new vendors - including handset maker Nokia - have introduced netbooks and MIDs in an effort to participate in the growth of these segments. ABI Research forecasts UMDs to top 124 million systems shipped in 2011.

As netbook markets thrive, the mobile consumer electronics category, which is expected to account for only about two million device shipments this year, is forecast to top 50 million in 2014. This market is currently led by connected Personal Navigation Devices (PNDs) and eBook readers.
