Since Taiwan is home to so many computer and electronics companies, you would assume that it could be a shopping Mecca for all the gadget geeks of the world.

Closer to an actual tablet that we would recognize, when compared to the frankenstein Sketch Book, MSI brings you the Wind Pad. Cramping on the iPad moniker, the Wind Pad is a 10-incher running on either Google Android OS or Windows 7. MSI actually plans to release the Wind Pad 100 later this year, with future iterations to come. Model 100 will be first, it’s going to run a 1.66GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor, 2GB RAM, and a 32GB SSD. Priced at $499 the model 100 will also sport HDMI output, dual USB 2.0 ports and a front-facing camera.
