So we got our hands on the new MSI WindPad W100, one of the very few Windows 7 based tablets. With traditional tablets of this kind, expect a combo of an Intel chip and Win7 to cater to a specific market or niche.
The WindPad W100 really looks and feels like a netbook cut into half, leaving out the keyboard. The device is a little thick on the side too, probably due to the limitations of the chip sizes.
MSI WindPad W100
10.1â€³ display @ 1024×768 pixels
Intel Menlow Processor Z530 @ 1.6GHz
2GB DDR2 RAM
Windows 7 Home Premium
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
USB 2.0 port
SDHC Card Reader
Mini HDMI Port
There are actually two cameras here — one at the back and one in front. The mini HDMI port allows you to plug it to an external display like a TV or monitor. Interestingly, there’s a SIM card slot as well but I don’t know if there’s a modem installed inside or just an optional slot for future upgrade.
The MSI WindPad W100 is being sold at VillMan for a suggested retail price of Php29,995. Full review to come out next week.
