NEC to sell new Packard Bell PCs

NEC will reportedly sell a new line of desktop computers manufactured by Packard Bell as NEC attempts to leverage its 20 percent stake in the U.S. PC vendor.

NEC will start selling a new line of desktop computers manufactured by Packard Bell this summer as NEC attempts to leverage its 20 percent stake in the U.S. PC vendor, according to a report in Japan's largest economic daily, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun.

The NEC PCs made in Packard Bell factories will go on sale in the United States in July. Initially, Packard Bell will manufacture between 20,000 and 30,000 computers a month. If these units meet NEC's quality standards, high-volume production will start in the fall, according to the report.

NEC acquired a $450 million equity stake in Packard Bell last summer. Packard Bell officials would not comment on the report.
