Add the MSI WindPad 100 to the ever-growing list of delayed tablet PCs.
Despite recently making news in early August with official photos of the Windows 7 tablet PC first unveiled at Computex Taipei, MSI’s Andy Tung told Engadget that his company is now holding out for the Intel Oak Trail Atom platform before releasing the MSI WindPad 100.
Tung claimed the current Atom processors simply don’t provide enough power and sufficient battery life for a viable tablet PC. Original specs for the WindPad 100 included a 1.66GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor.
Additional WindPad 100 specs now include a 10.1-inch display, 32GB SSD and 2GB of RAM.
According to the report, MSI still plans to release the Google Android-powered WindPad 110, which sports a Nvidia Tegra 2 ARM processor, in time for the holidays.
