MSI has finally released more details about its Windows 7-based WindPad 100W tablet, and is expected to ship two other tablets including an Android device in the coming months.
The 10.1in WindPad 100W will have an LCD multi-touch display powered by a 1.6GHz Intel processor with 2GB of DDR2 RAM.
The 800g tablet will come preloaded with Windows 7 Starter edition, which could deter some enterprise users. However, the integration of MSI's Wind Touch software, which helps to switch between work and entertainment applications, could prove enticing.
Other features include 32GB of internal storage, an SDHC card reader, HDMI output and a solitary USB 2.0 port. The WindPad will also ship with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
MSI has incorporated two cameras into the 100W, although the exact specifications are unconfirmed. The webcam will integrate with MSI's EasyFace 2.0 software so that users can log-in to their system, and select sites and applications such as Window Live Messenger using face recognition.
The WindPad is expected to ship with Adobe Flash Player 10.1 support, unlike the Motorola Xoom, and will feature smart brightness technology that automatically adjusts the display.
Another 10.1in WindPad, the 110W, is expected to be unveiled at CeBit in Hanover next week. This will powered by an AMD dual-core C-50 (Ontario series) chipset and run Windows 7 Home Premium, according to reports.
MSI is also expected to launch an Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet with an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. V3.co.uk had a hands-on demonstration with a prototype MSI Android tablet at last year's Computex show.
V3.co.uk contacted MSI to confirm additional details about the Windows 7 and Android devices, but the company was unable to confirm specifications. UK pricing and release dates are yet to be finalised for both tablets.
V3.co.uk will be at CeBit next week to bring you news and video demonstrations of the technology showcased at the event. MSI revealed that it will be showing off a number of concept products including the dual-screen Dual Pad.
