MSI Wind U120, 115 and 110 to be Released January 2009

Laptop Magazine has recently interviewed MSI’s Director of U.S. Sales Andy Tung. Below are the few highlights from the interview about MSI’s upcoming plan  in 2009:

  • The Wind U100 and U120 will be parallel products in the U.S. The U120 will have a new design (which we got a hands-on look at last month) and WiMax/3G options. The U120 will hit the U.S. market in January.
  • The Wind U110 and U115 will be released at the end of January and have the newest Intel Atom platform (Intel Atom Z530). The U115, as rumored, will have both an SSD and a hard drive. You will be able to turn off the hard drive completely to save battery power. He expects the U115 to get 10 hours of battery life.
  • MSI will unveil the 13.3-inch U300 at CES. It will not be a part of the Wind line, but will be a very thin, light and affordable ultraportable. Tung says he expects people to be “shocked.”
  • Going head-to-head with ASUS at the show, MSI will show a touch enabled-Wind at CES.
  • MSI will not bring Linux netbooks to market in the U.S.
  • Contrary to previous things we’ve heard, upgrading the Wind’s RAM will not void your warranty.
