Hot on the heels of the iPad's surprise $499 price tag comes MSI's new entrant to the tablet category.

This MSI tablet will have a 10" color touchscreen with wireless support and will be "lightweight and thin". No exact stats on that were given, but from the photo we have of the gadget it looks to be roughly the same size as the iPad.
