DigiTimes claims netbook sales from Acer, Asustek and MSI were below expectations last quarter:
Although Acer is estimated to have shipped two million Aspire One netbooks in the first quarter, the sources said that sales in the channel were lower. Meanwhile, Asustek's Eee PC sales were only 900,000 units, lower than the expected one million units, while MSI had sales of 200,000 Wind series netbooks, the sources revealed.

The sources pointed out the drop is mainly due to the maturing of key sales regions plus incomplete penetration into emerging markets.
