MSI working on Wind for business users, new MID

MSI has announced that they are working on a new version of their Wind UMPC that will be aimed at business users.

All we know so far is that it will be thinner than the current version and have a lot of the same components of the current Wind model, so it will be running the same Intel Atom processor.

The focus of the new Wind will be on design and functionality that appeals to business users.

They have no plans on competing with the Apple Air from a specifications perspective, that that’s the general idea–small and light.

Expect the business version of the Wind to be released at CES in January.

MSI is also working on a new handheld device that will be smaller than a mini-laptop and likely feature a 7-inch screen and slide-out keyboard for users that want to surf the web while on the go.  Sounds a bit like the Nokia Internet Tablets.
