MSI tabulates WindPad Windows tablet

Netbook sans keyboard?

Business security measures using SSL

MSI has spec'd up its upcoming Windows-based tablet, the WindPad 100W.

Think netbook minus keyboard and you have a pretty good idea of what to expect.

So, we're looking at 2GB of DDR 2 memory, a 32GB SSD, a 10.1in, 1024 x 600 screen, 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, one USB port, one SD card slot and one mini HDMI port.

MSI WindPad 100W

MSI simply said the 100W will incorporate an "Intel mobile processor", so whether Core 2, Core i or Atom remains to be seem. MSI's unwillingness to say suggests it's the unlaunched 'Oak Trail' Atom.

But the 100W does run Windows 7 Home Premium, not an OS you'd expect to see on a 1024 x 600 netbook, and here shelled with MSI's own Wind Touch UI.

The tablet measures 274 x 173 x 19mm and weighs 800g. Its battery is good for "over six hours" runtime, MSI claimed.

There's no word yet on availability or pricing. ®
