MSI Wind gets priced, dated for US release

Sure, the MSI Wind UMPC got priced a few days ago by UK online retailer eXpansys but that was for a version that could be exported to the US.

For its official US release the Wind will be going for $399 for the Linux version, and $549 for the Windows XP version. It’s worth mentioning that while MSI will be making a version of the Wind with an 8.9-inch screen and another with a 10-inch screen, only the 10-inch model will be coming to the US.

The Linux version will be running SUSE Linux and will feature:

  • 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 80GB hard drive
  • 3-cell battery rated for 2.5 hours

The pricier Windows XP version will add:

  • 512MB more memory for 1GB total
  • Bluetooth
  • Larger 6-cell battery rated for 5.5 hours

You’ll also have your choice of four colors: black, white, silver and pink

Look for these to each be available on July 3rd.
