MSI Launches Affordable Tablet PCs
Taiwanese PC manufacturer Micro-Star International (MSI) has launched a new Enjoy range of tablets at affordable prices. The new tablets will be available in two variants; a 7″ (800×480) for Rs 13,999 and a 10″ (1024×768) for Rs 14,999.
Powered by Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread operating system, these tablets with multi-touch capacitive displays sport a 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor and 512 MB RAM. They come equipped with a 2 MP rear as well as front camera for video calling. Adobe Flash 10.1 support is present and therefore no compromise has been made towards delivering a good web browsing experience.
Connectivity is achieved using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1. With an inbuilt storage capacity of 4 GB, these feature a microSD slot to add up to 32 GB. The 3.7 V 4000 mAh Lithium-ion claims to provide a battery backup of 5 hours for the 7″ tablet and 4 hours for the 10″ version. The tablets also feature ambient light sensor to help with a better battery life.
MSI had launched its WinPad tablets based on Windows last year, and this series is seen as the Android counterpart. However, the company has decided to skip certain features such as GPS and 3G, with MSI India General Manager Eric Kuo stating that the market is not yet ripe for these.
