The Windpad 100A, MSI’s Android-based answer to the iPad, has been knocking around for some time, but until now getting a fix on its specs has been quite difficult. MSI lifted the cover on the tablet at CeBIT 2011 this week, revealing some interesting and somewhat unexpected details about the device.
First of all, despite its relative age, MSI will make sure the tablet ships with the latest version of Android, AKA the tablet-optimised Honeycomb. Even better is the news that NVIDIA’s dual-core Tegra 2 chip will be onboard, allowing for smooth HD playback and multitasking.
Elsewhere, connectivity includes a HDMI out, alongside full and mini USB ports as well as an SD card slot. No release has been finalised, but the MSI team on hand at the show suggested a late May/early June launch.
