Another day, another tablet delay. This time, the already once-delayed MSI WindPad 100, a Windows 7 Tablet PC, has been pushed back again, reports the DigiTimes.
According to the report, MSI will instead release a Google Android-based WindPad running Android 3.0 by the end of March 2011, then release the Windows-based WindPad 100 with a second round of devices.
The MSI WindPad 100 was originally unveiled at Computex last June. MSI later delayed its release in hopes of incorporating the Intel Oak Trail Atom platform. The Android WindPad was also rumored to ship in time for the holidays, but the new reports pushes that date back to March.
MSI released official press photos of the MSI WindPad 100 in August. The photos reveal a docking station for the Windows 7 tablet that featured speakers, HDMI output, USB ports, VGA port, and Ethernet connection. MSI WindPad specs before all the delays included a 10.1-inch display, 1.66GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor, 32GB SSD and 2GB of RAM. A rumored price of $499 has also floated around.
