Here is another Windows 7 tablet device that has been sighted. Going by the near perfect looks of it, the tablet might be one more that can be added to the launch queue that is getting longer by the day. The tablet is the WindPad from MSI and definitely looks to have reached the final stages of development. What was brought to the fore was two distinct designs of the tablet with one of them sporting rounded chrome along the edge, while the other design on display included a rounded edge that seems to have been carved out of plastic. The tablet also looks to have been provided with a rubber layer at the back to ensure it holds easily in the hand. The WindPad also looks to have been made splash-proof as well as resistant to spills.
However, what is missing are the specification details of the device, though everyone would like the WindPad to continue to have what it was earlier touted to come with. Like a 10.1-inch display, Intel Atom Z530 processor with a clock speed of 1.66 GHz , 2 GB of RAM along with 32 GB solid-state drive. MSI has stated the tablet will have the full version of Windows 7, though a dedicated Android version is also believed to be in the making that is likely to have at its core an NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip. Perhaps the two different designs displayed are the two different versions running Android and Windows.
