It's June 27th, but instead of a 10-inch MSI Wind NB unboxing we're hearing that at least one pre-order customer is being greeted with another delay. Reason? An "industry wide battery shortage." Come now MSI, we guess you missed that giant fireball-of-a-signal to look elsewhere for your inventory back in March? At least MSI is tossing in free overnight delivery with the new July 7th ship date. Hoozah, drinks are on Fred! Full MSI notification posted after the break.
P.S. The MSI Wind NB retail page is currently blank. Time will tell if this is a deeper issue or just a temporary administration error.
[Thanks, Fred H.]
We are writing today to apologize for the delays surrounding the shipment of your MSI Wind NB. We had hoped we would have begun shipping units by now, but have been unable to do so due to the industry wide battery shortage. We can assure MSI is doing everything possible to work around this issue and get your unit shipped.
As estimated, the first shipment will arrive in the week of July 7 and we will upgrade your shipping to overnight service without any extra cost to you.
We can only ask for your continued patience and apologize for any inconvenience this delay may have caused.
Please feel free to contact us at the numbers below if you have any questions or concerns.
