The budget tablet is all set to get a boost thanks to MSI readying a new tablet soon. Named the WindPad Enjoy 10, the tablet is likely to be priced a quite convenient sub $300. Also the reason why the WindPad Enjoy 10 is considered not too far from making a market debut is the fact that the tablet has already made past FCC, disguised as MS-N0Y1.
However, while the tablet looks well built, the price though shows in the specification it carries. Like on board will be a customized version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread while the nice 10 inch capacitive touchscreen has a ridiculously low resolution of just 800 x 480 pixels, something that brings it to smartphone standards. (The latest Samsung Galaxy SII also has the same resolution.)
Inside the Enjoy 10 is a 1 GHz single core ARM Cortex-A8 processor coupled to 512 MB RAM while on-board storage is again a disappointingly low 4 GB, most the which is take up by the system itself. So its a paltry 1.2 GB that users will have at their disposal though the SD card slot will definitely come in handy here. Battery backup too is not anything to be proud of, as its just about 5 hours, which again is is roughly the same as many a tablet running Windows OS.
On the bright side, the Enjoy 10 boasts of bluetooth and 802.11b/g/n WiFi Wi-Fi capabilities along with other features such as an USB port as well as supporting HDMI video play back. Here also, the Enjoy is quite generous as it supports a range of formats such as MP4, Xvid, DiVX, and H.264.
However, seeing the specs, let’s just hope many of the specifications are simply wrong or the price is considerably below the $300 mark to ensure the Enjoy 10 indeed makes for an enjoyable experience. In fact, its the former that most would hope for, more so since the WindPad Enjoy 10 during its launch at Computex had mentioned a 1.2 GHz Arm Cortex 8 processor along with a 1024 x 768 pixel display.
