Posted by at 6:39 am on January 18, 2011

At CES MSI revealed two new generation WindPad tablets – one on the Windows platform and the other on the Android  platform. Both sport functions such as G-Sensor gravity detection, which protects the internal hardware in case the unit is dropped, an ALS light sensor which adjusts screen brightness according to the surrounding light source, and Wi-Fi.

The lean 10.1-inch multi-touch machine – based on the Android OS and weighing in at 1.6 pounds – is powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 processor, and offers features such as a digital compass, a GPS locator, and Wi-Fi with a 3G option available. The new tablet is approximately half an inch thick at its thinnest point, and can run for eight to ten hours on a single battery charge.

The WindPad 100A offers a complete array of I/O ports, with USB and HDMI slots for expanding and connecting. To ensure that the WindPad’s unlimited expandability is easy-to-use, the MSI design team carried out more than 10,000 computer simulations on the possibilities for their placement. This rigorous testing process means the I/O ports are seamlessly integrated into the tablet’s design.

The MSI WindPad 100W tablet will be available in Q1 2011 with prices starting from $499.
