Wintel-based tablets to arrive before Android 3.0

MSI is reportedly preparing to launch its 10-inch Wintel-based tablet in January or February, ahead of the company's Android-based models, according to a DigiTimes report. Several other Oak Trail-based tablets are also said to be set for formal introduction at CES early in January.

The Wintel-based tablet likely represents MSI's WindPad 100, which will be updated with a newer Oak Trail CPU, although earlier reports suggested the device would be delayed past its ARM-based counterparts. The tablet is expected to feature a 10-inch, 1024x600 display, along with an accelerometer, SD slot, USB connectors, and mini HDMI output.

Aside from the Wintel-based tablet, the company is also said to be preparing its ARM-based offerings for a launch in April or May. The devices will be powered by NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 platform, which will power Android 3.0.

Analysts expect MSI to pair its tablets with an aggressive pricing strategy, although the company has yet to disclose specific prices for its upcoming devices.
