Gizmodo reports MSI is working on the Wind U150, this netbook will feature a touchscreen and will utilize Intel's upcoming Pine Trail Atom platform.
However, Intel tells us that it has not nailed down the launch of Pine Trail yet and maintains it will ship products to its customers before the end of the year. MSI hopes to be first to market with Pine Trail netbooks, including its 10-inch convertible U150 with Windows 7.
Either way, the sooner we get a newer Atom the better (also keep in mind the next version of the all-popular Atom also differs by blending the CPU and GPU on the same chip). According to MSI's Andy Tung, Pine Trail is showing improved graphics performance and at least 20 percent better power consumption.
