Apparently, the 8.9-inch MSI Wind U90 is also available in the Philippines and selling for Php19,500 at selected branches of PC Corner. Now the cheap Acer Aspire One has a strong competitor in the sub-20k 9″ UMPC segment.
Specs and pricing for the MSI Wind U90 is as follows:
Intel Atom 1.6GHz, 80GB HDD, 1GB RAM: Php19,500
Intel Atom 1.6GHz, 80GB HDD, 1.5GB RAM: Php19,999
Intel Atom 1.6GHz, 160GB HDD, 2GB RAM: Php23,999
The units doesn’t have Windows XP pre-installed. The MSI Wind line-up just became more interesting. See my review of the MSI Wind U100 here.
