MSI WindPad 100 Tablet to be Launched in Jan/Feb 2011

December 17, 2010, By Leo Xavier

Latest info is suggesting that Micro-Star International will launch its 10-inch Wintel-based tablet PC in January/ February 2011. The new tablet will be followed by the launch of ARM-based models in April or May.

The 10-inch model is most likely the MSI WindPad 100 tablet, and the device is expected to be showcased at the upcoming CES. It is also expected that the company will also showcase other tablet PCs based on Intel’s Oak Trail platform at the event.

The WindPad 100 tablet should come equipped with a 10-inch 1024 x 600 pixel display, accelerometer, SD card slot, USB connections and a mini HDMI port.

As you already know that the competition in the tablet PC market is growing since more companies are joining in on the action. It is expected that MSI will adopt a more aggressive pricing strategy to promote its tablet PCs. If that means that customers will be getting the device by paying less, then that’s a pretty good idea.

During CES, the company will introduce Intel Huron River-based notebooks, including models equipped with Nvidia GeForce GTX 460M or Radeon HD 6870 graphics processors. A 15.6-inch model powered by AMD’s Fusion E-350 APU will also be unveiled by the company.

In case you are wondering about the ARM-based models, the machines will be powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, and will support Android 3.0.
