MSIs Notebook Product Manager Neo Lin has let loose a few details on the companys upcoming U91 and U120 netbooks during an interview with Impress a short time ago.

MSI U91 and U120 netbooks

As the direct successor to the U90, the U91 sports an 8.9" screen whilst the bolder U120 uses a 10". Both netbooks will also offer HSDPA connectivity.

Apparently MSI put serious consideration into going with VIAs Nano platform for these netbooks, but decided to go the Intel route instead with a chance of going with the dual-core Atom 330 (providing the battery guzzling issue can be rectified somehow).

2GB was briefly mentioned as being the likely amount of memory to be found in the U120; no mention of actual specs or how/if the U90 will be under-cut in some of these areas. 2GB memory will mean Vista is enforced due to ULPC constraints, which some won't be enthralled about, i'm sure.
