First announced October of 2008, the MSI Wind U120 was the first netbook from the Taiwanese manufacturer to have built-in 3.5G (HSDPA) capability. Last week, MSI and Sun Wireless Broadband had a roadshow event showcasing the U120 and the U100 Plus earlier mentioned here.
Unlike the earlier announcement, the U120H is now at 10″ instead of the 8.9″ indicated in the release.
MSI Wind U120H
Intel Atom Processor N270 1.6GHz
Intel 945GSE + ICH7M
10â€ screen display (1024x 600 LED backlight)
1GB DDR2 667MHz memory
250GB SATA Hard Disk Drive
3.5G (HSDPA) solution for 3G communication
802.11 b/g wireless LAN
Windows XP Home Edition
The MSI Wind U120 also has this exclusive MSI EasyFace (Face Identification Software) included (not sure though if it’s for login purposes like fingerprint scanners). MSI did not indicate how long the 6-cell battery would last considering there’s the 3G connection that could easily drain off extra juice. Would be interesting to see how strong the internal antenna for that 3G though.
The suggested retail price — Php27,999.
