A senior source at Compaq said today that his company had a "reasonable" chance of securing a large contract for NetPCs from courier Fedex.
Before Christmas, a senior IBM executive admitted to 'VNU Newswire' that it was having trouble closing a thin client deal with the courier.
The source said: "Fedex is still looking to move to thin clients but has moved away from IBM."
The deal concerns an estimated 50,000 Net PCs or NCs and is being brokered by Fedex' US parent - its UK subsidiary has officially denied it is looking to move into the thin client area.
