Costco to offer first AT&T netbook

Acer Aspire One to arrive May 11th

It looks like one of the first of the cellular wireless subsidized netbooks are set to arrive on May 11th with U.S. retailer Costco who will be selling the Acer Aspire One with AT&T 3G access. Our sources are telling us that we will see it also available in AT&T stores a couple of days earlier on May 8th, but the carrier has yet to confirm this fact.

The Acer Aspire One will be offered in the 10.1” configuration, but the exact specifications are still a bit of a mystery and we expect the configuration to be similar to the AT&T netbook that is available at Radio Shack in the 8.9-inch configuration.

While pricing has yet to be confirmed, we suspect the pricing to be a bit higher than the 8.9-inch configuration that Radio Shack is offering. The decision to move into the netbook arena could be a very good move by cellular carriers who are looking to expand their offerings and build new revenue streams. Our sources continue to tell us that we should expect carriers in the U.S. and Canada to expand into a variety of netbook offerings between now and the end of the year.
