Hard drive shortage will be constrained into Q1: Dell

Hard drive shortage will be constrained into Q1: Dell

Amid Midha, Dell’s president of South Asia and Asia-Pacific Japan, said on a conference call that the company purchased a significant amount of hard drives last month, but he refused to disclose the inventory level.

“But we have an improving visibility in the situation day by day; it’s a fluid situation," said Midha.

The world’s No. 3 personal computer maker’s quarterly revenue just missed Wall Street estimates, and the company warned that full-year revenue could be hurt by an industrywide shortage of hard drives.
