MSI to ship 10-inch Tegra tablet in late 2010

updated 10:15 am EST, Thu January 28, 2010

MSI 10-inch tablet a production device

Computer and portable electronics maker MSI will launch its tablet PC in the second half of the year with an NVIDIA Tegra chip, the company's sales director Sambora Chen on Thursday. The prototype tablet was shown off at CES using the dual-core Tegra 250 chip and featured a 10-inch color touchscreen, but it wasn't given a hard release window at the time. MSI will launch different versions of the tablet as well.

Pricing for the tablet will start at $500, according to Chen, which matches the starting price of Apple's just-launched iPad perfectly. The unit shown at CES ran Android and so would have little if any cost overhead compared to a Windows Mobile device.

According to the same report, ASUS on Wednesday announced its new digital content platform, called ASUS@Vibe, that would have music, news, digital lessons, e-books and web games for such devices, hinting at its plans for the Eee Pad in June. [via DigiTimes]

    I'm surprised MSI isn't just sticking

    with making their netbooks which people claim is a clearly superior platform due to the inclusion of a physical keyboard. One of the most vocally claimed disadvantages of the iPad is that it doesn't multitask, so likely the MSI tablet will be able to multitask. The biggest loser in all this new tech is Microsoft's Windows Mobile platform.

    netbooks

    Depending on what you're using it for, the netbook is clearly the superior platform. In other cases, I'm sure the iPad is. In others, a MacBookPro.

    Just waiting...

    Hmmmm.. Maybe they were just waiting to see what they have to add, tweak, fix so it will look like a cheap knock off of what ever Apple comes out with.

    Now that Apple has shown its hand. MSI is ready to copy, patch, upgrade and fail big time. :-)

    Just a thought.
