MSI has introduced its two latest tablets at Computex to a small selected audience. Codenamed Enjoy, both tablets run Android, but one has a 10-inch display and costs $299 while the other offers a 7-inch display and costs $199. The tablets will be powered by a 1.2GHz Cortex A 8 processor.
Although the two tablets do not have functionalities similar to Apples iPad 2, MSI hopes to attract customers with the lower price tag. The 10-inch tablets display has a XGA resolution, which is similar to the iPad 2s resolution and two cameras, a front facing camera and a rear camera. Other features include a 4GB storage capacity which can be enhanced up to 32GB, mini USB and mini HDMI ports and an internal accelerometer. Unfortunately, 3G is not available.
Potential buyers will be disappointed to find that the Enjoy 10 has battery autonomy of only six hours (the iPad 2 can run on battery for about 10 hours). The tablets are scheduled for launch in the UK tomorrow, theres no information about the US launch. More specs will be available after the release.
MSI seems to have entered the smartphone market a little bit late, but as the demand for tablets is growing day by day, surely they will be able to target enough customers. But, we are not quite sure that the tablet will be able to pose a threat to the iPad 2 as Xoom or Galaxy Tab does.
