Smaller Wind comes in October

10-inch is more important

According to our info, the 8.9-inch version of MSI's Wind netbook, also known as the Wind U90 will hit retail sometime in October. Apparently, MSI sees more potential in the 10-inch version as this one will surely be more popular and of course it will bring more money to the company. This is not surprising, as most vendors only offer 8.9-inch netbooks, and the extra inch gives the Wind an edge over the competition.

The 8.9-inch Wind U90 will have almost the same specifications as its bigger, 10-inch brother. It comes with Intel's 1.6GHz Atom N270 CPU, has an 8.9-inch WSVGA (1024x600) non-glare display, 1024MB of memory and has an 80GB hard drive.

Just before the U90 hits retail/e-tail, MSI is going to have another version of the U100 Wind netbook, the one that comes with a 160GB hard drive and a 6-cell battery.

The 8.9-inch version will certainly get a lot of attention as it will end up to be cheaper than the 10-inch version but that is left to be seen when it actually hits the shops.
