PC maker MSI has two tablet PCs in the works, one with an ARM-based processor running Google Android and another with an Intel chip that will run Windows 7. But according to Engadget only one of the tablets is expected to ship before the end of the year, and that’s the Wind Pad 110 Android model.
Apparently MSI isn’t happy with the performance of the Wind Pad 100 Windows 7 tablet with Intel’s current generation of Atom processors. Instead, MSI is opting to hang out for the next-generation Intel Atom Oak Trail platform to hit the streets. At this point it looks like the Wind Pad 100 won’t be available until after Intel officially launches the Oak Trail line of chips in early 2011. That’s despite the fact that some new press shots of the Wind Pad 100 started making the rounds earlier this summer.
