Acer could ship as many as 2 million Aspire One laptops by the end of the quarter, according to DigiTimes. The company is on track to ship as many as million netbooks this month in the US, Europe, Asia, and emerging markets like India.

Acer is also reportedly planning to release netbooks with support for 3G wireless data connetions, which could give the company a bit of a boost — especially if mobile carriers start to subsidize the price of the computer.

Many netbook enthusiasts seemed mildly disappointed with yesterday’s announcement that the base model Dell Inspiron Mini 9 will come with less memory than the cheapest Acer Aspire One while costing more. That makes the Acer Aspire One, with its $329 starting price, the cheapest ultraportable laptop available with an Intel Atom CPU.
