MSI to Unveil WinPad Tablets at CES

MSI is said to be planning to show off its upcoming tablets called WinPads, which were first spotted last August during Computex, in time for CES. This time, however, the company is bent on releasing the two devices.

One of the tablets has a 10.1-inch screen and runs on Windows 7 Home Premium edition. It is said to be one of the first Intel Oak Trail-powered devices in the market. The tablet is measured less than an inch thick and will have a multitouch display with 1024 x 600 resolution, mini-HDMI, mini-USB, SD card slot, and an accelerometer.

Meanwhile, the other tablet will be Android-based, with a dual-core Tegra 2 processor. It also has a 10.1-inch multitouch display with 1280 x 800 resolution, as well as features similar to the Windows-powered tablet. The main physical differences, however, are its thinner built and a drop-proof design. The version of Android would depend on Google, according to MSI reps. If Android 3.0, known as Honeycomb, is available by February to March 2011, the tablet would run with that. If that would not happen, the tablet will run on Gingerbread (Android 2.3) on its release.
