There’s no word on how much a 3G Acer Aspire One would cost. It’s possible that a wireless provider could choose to subsidize the price for customers who are willing to sign up for 1 or 2 year contracts.
The move isn’t particularly surprising. The Aspire One has a slot for a 3G card, even if that slot has gone unused so far. And other subnotebook makers including Asus have already announced plans to partner with wireless carriers.
