MSI WindPad images show two designs, HDMI, more
MSI has once again showed off renderings of its upcoming WindPad tablet, brought out by Blogeee. While no specs accompany the images, it can only be assumed they are the same as before, including a 10.1-inch display, 1.66GHz Atom Z530, 2GB of RAM and a 32GB solid-state drive with a full version of Windows 7. And Android version should also be available but is likely to use an NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip.
The images do show off two distinct designs, with a chrome edge that’s rounded and a slightly curved edge that seems to be plastic. Whether this will differentiate the Windows 7 and Android device remains to be seen. Also seen is the promised HDMI port, and a USB port will also be present, though it's not visible in the photos. The rear of the tablet will sport what appears to be a rubber mat, presumably to keep the device in place on a desk or table and is not unlike some MacBook designs.
The tablets may be splash-proof to ensure longevity and be resistant to spills.
