If you were expecting Computex 2010 in Taiwan to be the unveiling of a lot of new tablet computers, you are in luck. MSI has unveiled a new tablet computer at the show in prototype form called the WindPad 100.

The WindPad 100 is an Intel Atom-powered machine that runs Windows 7 Ultimate. MSI uses a custom UI over the top of Windows 7 for easy use. The prototype rig is not finalized hardware, but it will sport a pair of USB ports, HDMI out, and a webcam in the final version.

The machine uses an Atom Z530 CPU and has a 10-inch screen. That screen has a 1024 x 600 resolution. The tablet tips the scales at 1.7 pounds and the screen is a capacitive touch unit. Engadget reports the thing was slow, though again it is a prototype so hopefully the production version will be faster.
