Just like seemingly everyone else at CES this year, MSI unveiled two new tablets and we got a first-hand look at them. While the Android WinPad 100A looked impressive the Windows-powered 100W left a lot to be desired.
Ok, so since the WinPad 100W will be heading directly to the business and education sectors and not entering the retail market, styling is less important but we were amazed at just how ugly the thing looked when compared to the WinPad 100A. The Android version, especially when it is running Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), looks like it could be a contender, though it did look a lot like the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Inbuilt card readers in both devices is a nice touch and using Nvidia’s Tegra 2 processor should also entice a lot of users. No shipping date or price for the 100A has been released yet but we expect it to hit shelves by Q2 of 2011.
