MSI is readying to unveil their 10.1" Android & Windows tablets next month
First up is their 10.1” Android tablet that features an ARM Cortex-A9 chip-set, 1280 x 800 resolution, mini-HDMI port, and miniUSB port. However, it's not set in stone which version of Android it'll be packing since they're deliberating on which one to consider. In essence, it'll run Android 2.3 Gingerbread at the very least, but they may tinker with Android 3.0 “Honeycomb.”
Alternatively, their Windows 7-based tablet will be one of the very first Intel Oak Trail powered devices on the market. Even though Intel would tout its processing and battery preservation prowess, MSI Director of North American Sales, Andy Tung, says that battery life and performance improvements will be “not extremely significant.” Regardless, you'll essentially have a full blown equipped tablet that should suffice for productivity applications.
With CES less than a month away, it's going to be interesting to see which tablets will make a name for themselves.
