Are the $500+ Android tablets a little out of your budget? MSI has you covered with their sub-$300 Enjoy 7 and Enjoy 10 Gingerbread Windpads.
The WindPad Enjoy 10 is a 10-inch Android slate running Gingerbread (Android 2.2) with relatively pedestrian specs as compared to some of the high-end tablets that are out there – Weighs 795g, 1024 x 768 resolution, 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, a 27.3WHr battery, 1.2GHz ARM Cortex A8 (single core) processor that’s said to be able to play back 1080p video, and at least one of the dual 2 megapixel cameras should be able to record in 720p as well. But as we said this is a budget offering, and with an asking price of $299 it’s a little easier on the wallet than the likes of the Motorola Xoom et al.
As you might have guessed, he Enjoy 7 is the 7-inch variant of the 10-incher. This one is pretty much identical to the Enjoy 10 besides being smaller, with an 800 x 480 resolution, having a smaller 17.3WHr battery and weighing in at 395g. Both tablets share a super glossy front-side (fingerprint magnets) and metal backs. No price has been released for the Enjoy 7 but it will almost definitely be even less than the Enjoy 10.
MSI states that they went with Android 2.3 over 3.0 for its broader compatibility and better stability. Unfortunately, though, neither tablet is licensed to access the Android Market – but the pre-production units that Engadget looked at had an APK installer on board and MSI promised to figure out a workaround to let you obtain apps.
Production is slated to begin on both units in July and both are expected to be released in the U.S. sometime around August. Overseas releases should follow shortly after the U.S. release.
