I already mentioned this morning that MSI pulled the wraps off its WindPad 100 sporting an Intel Atom and Windows 7. Alongside the WindPad 100, MSI has also unveiled the WindPad 110. The main difference between the two is the processor and the OS.

Whereas the 100 uses an Atom and Windows 7, the 110 uses NVIDIA's Tegra 2 platform and run Android for the operating system. I will say that this is certainly the more appealing machine in my book. It also comes in at about $100 cheaper than the 100 with a price of $399 when it lands; assuming MSI can stick to its price promise.

The rig has the same 10-inch capacitive touch screen and will have USB ports and video out capability. The machine seen at the show wasn't a part of the MSI press conference and different folks at MSI are telling Engadget different things about availability. One source cited the $399 price point and a launch by the end of the year while another says MSI hasn't decided to bring the prototype product to market yet. I bet it will come to market; there has been speculation that Intel put pressure on MSI and Asus to not talk about Tegra tablets at the show.
