Price Errors in Taiwan Bite Dell

Susan Hall

Dell has closed its Web site in Taiwan after the government required it to honor several price errors on it, reports There's no word on when it will reopen.


Taiwan's Consumer Protection Commission last week ordered the company to make good on the errors, which included 19-inch LCD monitors for NT$500 (US$15.26). But there were more errors. On Sunday, more than 40,000 people snapped up Dell Latitude E4300 laptop PCs that normally cost NT$69,000 (US$2,101.34) that were listed for eight hours for NT$18,500 (US$563.40), reports


The company is said to be working with the Consumer Protection Commission on a "reasonable" solution to the problem.
