MSI's Director of U.S. Sales Andy Tung has conducted an interview with Laptop Mag and in it he revealed his company's plans to release a new 10-inch Wind 2 netbook called the U120 by the end of this year.
In the interview, Andy said that while the U100 was a big success and great for teenagers, it lacked the features desired by true business users. Those features? 802.11n wireless LAN and mobile broadband aka a built-in 3.5G modem that will accept a SIM card with a mobile broadband data plan.
The MSI Wind U120 will also lose the round "cute" edges and be more square in design and at launch it will come with a 120GB hard drive but later on consumers will be able to pick models with either a 20Gb or 40GB SSD installed inside. While some would have liked to see the inclusion of a dual-core Atom processor, MSI claims that Intel is holding off on the launch of the mobile dual-core Atom until the second part of 2009, so it will have to be single-core until that time.
