MSI hasn’t seen much success with its tablet offerings, or its line of laptops for that matter, but it looks like it’s trying hard to change that.
A lot of new Android devices have been launched this year, at Computex, including the Viewsonic ViewPad 7X and 10Pro.
Today, MSI also launched two new tablets – the WindPad Enjoy 7 and the WindPad Enjoy 10.
The WindPad Enjoy 10 is a 10 inch tablet with a display resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. It has 4 GB internal storage and is powered by a 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor. It also offers 512 MB RAM. It has dual 2 MP cameras and can play back 1080p video. It will be priced at $299.
The WindPad 7 is a 7 inch tablet with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It has the same specifications – 1.2 GHz processor, 4 GB internal storage and 512 MB RAM. It will be priced even lower, possibly around the $249 mark.
Both the tablets run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which is surprising considering that every new Android tablet is running Android Honeycomb. They say that they preferred Android 2.3 Gingerbread over 3.0 Honeycomb for its broader compatibility, but both the tablets don’t even support Android Market, so I’m confused. The tablets are good, and they might even include some workaround to install apps, but the lack of Android Market support is a big downer.
