Worldwide shipments of handheld computers fell in the third
quarter instead of rising as the research firm Dataquest Inc.
had said. The company revised its estimates after Hewlett-Packard Co. said it shipped fewer units than previously reported.
Worldwide shipments fell 2.4 percent to 2.55 million from 2.62
million a year earlier, Dataquest said. U.S. shipments fell 1.4
percent to U.S.$1.21 million. Dataquest had earlier reported that
worldwide shipments had risen 0.9 percent and U.S. shipments had
risen 4.5 percent. (Bloomberg News)
