At Computex 2011 in Taipei MSI unveiled two new 7 and 10-inch Tablets in their WindPad Enjoy series. The 7-inch version offers a display resolution of 800×480 while it’s bigger brother provides a resolution of 1024×768. Both Tablets feature the same specs except for the battery life, which is slightly longer on the 10-inch model, other than that they are identical. The OS of choice is Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Both displays feature captive multi-touch capabilities. The CPU is a 1.2GHz ARM-based Cortex A8 CPU and its only single-core so its very much last years tech. RAM is maxed out at 512MB and storage starts at just 4GB. Access to the Android market place is not available unfortunately but AppsLib does come preinstalled, which will still provide thousands of useful Apps and fun Games.

Front and rear cameras come as standard along with a HDMI port and 2 microUSB ports. The overall design of is in keeping with the budget quality we have come to expect from MSI, which is to say it feels reminiscent of their NetBooks. The WindPad Enjoy 7 & 10 are considered a low-cost alternative to the more premium and luxury Tablets from the likes of Samsung, Motorola and Apple. In that respect they deliver a solid media capable experience with reasonable battery runtime, quality displays, responsive performance and full support for 720p and 1080p video playback. We are expecting a July release the 10-inch model will set you back just $300 while the price for the 7-inch model has not yet been provided but will be a good deal cheaper.
