MSI confirms Pinetrail-having, touchscreen Windows 7 Wind U150 for 2010

MSI has confirmed some previous whisperings of a Windows 7-running, resistive touchscreen netbook which will boast Intel's much anticipated Pine Trail chipset -- the Wind U150, which should present some competition for the ASUS T91. The real question is timing for this one: MSI has also said that Intel's chipset will arrive at CES 2010, which makes sense in the context of previous rumors we've heard that Acer and ASUS are freezing new netbook production until 2010, pending Pine Trail's debut. Intel, however, has remained steadfast in its avowal that the chipset is still on track for release this year... so what does it all mean? Your guess is as good as ours. MSI also simultaneously confirms the Wind U210 for the beginning of September, on AMD's Yukon platform. The U210 will run Windows XP and start at $379, with 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive.
