The MSI Slatebook tablet PC will launch in the US and Europe in Q3 2010. MSI Chairman Joseph Hsu revealed this information to Digitimes, along with news about MSI's netbook plans. Hsu doesn't expect the tablet PC market to really take off until 2011, when “supporting applications and services” come out in greater bulk.

MSI's 2010 line-up separates their notebooks into six categories. F-series devices have “fashionable” designs, the G-series are built for gamers, the C-series are “classic”, and then there are Wind U netbooks and X-Slim ultra-thin notebooks, plus the Slatebook tablet PC line.

The company only plans to launch 2-3 netbook models per year now in order to keep up with demand. They see the netbook market contracting and do not want to overproduce for demand. Their flagship netbook this year will be the Wind U160, which is set be unveiled at Computex. They will also show off Atom N455 and Atom N475-packing machine (with DDR3 support) as well as a new netbook that sports a dual-core N550 processor.

The Slatebook will also be making an appearance at Computex. It has an Atom Zxx series processor, multitouch capability, Windows 7, 3G and WiFi, USB and HDMI ports, and an 800g weight.
