MSI launched a new tablet in Taiwan yesterday with the MSI S100, a 10.1-inch Windows 8.1 tablet.
This is the second Windows 8 tablet in MSI’s portfolio, while a 8-inch Windows tablet is expected to be added to their range soon too.
The MSI S100 meanwhile is a 10.1-inch Windows 8.1 tablet with a 1.33GHz Intel Bay Trail-T Z3740D processor, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 64GB memory, 1280 x 800 resolution, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0, a 2MP front camera and 2MP rear camera, which is powered by a 7500mAh battery.
MSI S100 comes with a combined keyboard and cover/stand as well. The weight for the tablet together with the sleeve/stand as well as the keyboard, is 890 gram. The stand alone weight for the tablet is just 595 gram though.
MSI tablet are priced at the same level as Acer tablets, so this tablet will prove a hard sell, and it’s up against a lot of competitors.
