Micro Star International (MSI) is mainly known for its motherboards and netbooks. After Apple released the iPad at the starting of the year, all the major computer manufacturers have launched or will soon be launching a tablet based device. This includes Asus, Dell, HP and now MSI. MSI is all set to announce an Android, and a Windows 7 based tablet device at the upcoming Computex in June. This year, the Computex 2010 will be held in Taiwan.
An insider from the company says that the tablet will come in an 8.9 inch and a 10 inch form factor. The tablets will be powered by Nvidia Tegra 2 and/or Intel Atom processors. The pricing is expected to be “extremely aggressive.”
MSI was also expected to release a dual screen tablet at Computex. Sadly, the launch of the device has been delayed.
MSI’s Andy Tung said “The two screens are a major drain on the battery, and even with a higher density battery and the Menlow CPU we are only getting three hours.”
The release date of the dual screen tablet has now been pushed back to the fourth quarter of this year.
