Acer, the world’s third largest personal computers supplier, is said to have quit from its contract with Quanta Computer in regards of netbooks production.

According to a news-story by DigiTimes web-site, Acer is planning to outsource orders for 15 million Aspire One netbooks in 2009 to Compal Electronics and Wistron. The market sources reportedly pointed out that Quanta Computer will not produce the second generation of Aspire One by the second quarter of 2009.

Nevertheless, since Acer plans to ship 20 million of netbooks in 2009, the additional 5 million orders might still fall to Quanta, the world’s largest contract maker of notebooks.

Misunderstandings between Acer and Quanta over their netbook planning when the two companies started cooperation on the Aspire One netbook project, reportedly had left Acer unsatisfied, according to DigiTimes.

Wistron is a former manufacturing division of Acer Group.
