MSI Windows 7, Android Tablets Appearing in June

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 4 comments

Expect to see MSI's tablets during Computex in june.

Engadget reports that MSI is dipping its foot in the tablet pool with the release pf its Android and Windows 7 touchscreen devices. Although specific details were not provided, the company said that they will come in 8.9-inch and 10-inch version, and will ship sometime in Q3 2010. However, consumers should expect to see their official unveiling in a few months during Computex 2010.

Liliputing elaborates, reporting that the Android version will use Nvidia's Tegra 2 platofrm which combines ARM's low-powered processor with Nvidia's GPU to provide both graphics acceleration and HD video. The Windows 7 version will use an Intel Atom processor.

As for the cool, dual-screen tablet we saw at CES 2010 back in January, that device has seen a few setbacks. Apparently MSI encountered a snag in its design, resulting in a major battery drain. "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," said MSI's Andy Tung.

The dual-screen device should see a Q4 2010 release, although that date is not officially set in stone.
