MSI's U120 Wind coming in November

MSI Wind coming earlier

There are new specs to report regarding the MSI Wind U120, introduced earlier this month. The netbook will include a built-in 3G module and sport a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU coupled to 1GB of memory and a 120GB hard drive with Windows XP. The newest report, published on Monday, maintains the netbook will be available in November and not, as previously believed, December. MSI has teamed up with Vibo Telecom in its home market of Taiwan for supplying its 8.9-inch Wind U90 netbook with wireless data services, and the computer maker is in talks with European providers for similar deals.

Buyers will be able to pick between white or black, with pricing in Taiwan set at the equivalent of about $550.

In related news, the same report alleges MSI has no plans to launch touch screen-equipped systems like those for Eee PCs in 2009. The company reportedly cites too-high costs for a viable entry into the market, but does promise to show its second-generation Wind netbook at the CeBIT expo next year.
