Shh! Don't tell MSI!
Okay, sneak peak isn’t perhaps the best description of what we have in relation to the U120 – we don’t actually have a system in our hands. But that’s how it was described to us by our source, so that’s how I’m describing it to you. What we do have, is a bunch of pictures and some information regarding the planned specs and pricing.
The U120 is described as a “slightly more professional look over the U100” and I have to agree. The casing looks white, rather than the cream of the U100.
Specs wise, we’re informed that HSDPA is on the cards when the system launches in January next year. Most likely a full unveiling will happen at CES, if you want my guess.
Pricing, we’re told, should be “about £350-ish,” which is wonderfully specific. As I commented regarding the Asus Eee PC S101, though, it should be worth it even just for the more grown up look.
In related news, we’re told that the 6-cell battery sporting MSI Wind will be retailing at £339, £20 less than we had previously thought.
