In addition to Asus, MSI will be another Taiwanese company to unveil their tablet PCs at this year’s Computex. MSI will be unveiling tablets in sizes of 8.9- and 10-inches, will run on Android or Windows 7 OS and ship sometime in third quarter of this year. Although these are single screen tablets, the dual-screen tablet that we saw at this year’s CES won’t be out till end of this year. MSI executive Andy Tung has confirmed to Engadget that two screens and Atom CPU needs more optimization to achieve satisfactory battery life.
“The two screens are a major drain on the battery, and even with a higher density battery and the Menlow CPU we are only getting three hours.”
