MSI Windows 7 tablet delayed until Oak Trail launch

Posted on Tuesday, August 24 2010 @ 15:21:43 CEST by

Engadget heard from MSI that the company's Windows 7 tablet has been delayed until Intel releases its Oak Trail Atom platform at CES 2010, because of the increased power efficiency and enhanced performance of this new mobile platform. The Taiwanese firm also revealed that a Tegra 2-powered WindPad 110 tablet with Android 2.2 will be released before the holiday season, and added that the number of netbooks in MSI's lineup will be reduced to make room for tablets.
MSI's Andy Tung told us that the current Atom platform just doesn't provide adequate battery life and power for the form factor, and that it's finding the Oak Trail platform to be much better in all areas with the Windows 7 OS. Tung also said it's still experimenting with the dualscreen Win 7 tablet, but similarly needs a better hardware platform. Oh don't worry, there's still some tablet love to come from MSI this year -- the company still plans to release its Tegra 2-powered, Android 2.2 WindPad 110 tablet in time for the holiday season. MSI is working with Google, and we were told that the Android tablet should have access to some sort of app store
