"So we get it, a lot of you are underwhelmed by the iPad. But
there's much more to the tablet world than Apple's latest creation.
According to Digitimes (via Engadget), MSI's 10" tablet is coming
during the second half of 2010. But will you Doubting Thomases be
any happier with this offering?
"The price is the same as the cheapest iPad ($500) and the
capacitive screen is effectively the same size (9.7" for the iPad,
10" for the MSI). The iPad runs iPhone OS while the MSI runs
Android. That means the MSI will multitask of course, and Flash
support in Android should be a given by launch time (though that
isn't certain). It has a camera. It's running on an Nvidia Tegra2
chip which Ars Technica suggests puts it on par with the iPad's A4
as far as computing horsepower. And of course Android doesn't live
in a walled garden."
