MSI’s WINPAD tablet running Windows 7 was unveiled last year Computex 2010 but never really made much of an impact on the Indian market. It does however appear, that they fully intend to launch their budget priced tablets viz. the ENJOYPAD 7 and 10 (not really the best name out there) for this market.
Low priced and ready to go
The new Enjoy series of tablets feature a 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor and 512 Mb of RAM. This means new slim tablets will be running Android 2.3.3 aka Gingerbread out of the box. Perhaps Honeycomb would have required them to up the price. There's been no word on whether or not these devices will be upgradable to Honeycomb at some later date. The tablets will have Adobe Flash 10.1, support for better web browsing and feature display resolutions of 800 x 480 pixels for the 7-incher (16:9) and 1024 x 768 for the larger 10-inch device (4:3). Aside from that both tablets will be equipped with dual 2 megapixel cameras for video calling and images. Other features include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP. These ENJOYPAD tablets will come with 4GB of internal memory and support for microSD cards up to 32GB. MSI has stated that the battery life (4000mAh Lithium battery) on these devices have a target of 4-5 hours of usage. We can only confirm this after our own tests of course.
The tablets are priced at Rs. 14,999 for the ENJOYPAD 10 and Rs. 13,999 for the smaller ENJOYPAD 7. They can also be ordered online from http://in.msi.com/.
