MSI S100 is a 10-inch Windows tablet with keyboard, for 349 Euros!

Updated on 12 August 2014 by

MSI aren’t known for having big distribution channels in Europe or North America so the new MSI S100 10-inch Baytrail-T tablet may not reach your local store shelves but it will be interesting to watch the price on it. We’ve spotted it, pre-sale,  for 349 Euros ($384 pre-tax equiv.)  MSI have chosen a 1280×800 screen resolution and have issued a strange press release. This “WinOS” tablet has “soul-shaking 3D surround sound. “ A 2MP camera “provides incredibly [sic] image quality.”

One retailer in Europe has the MSI S100-012NL up for pre-sale at 349 Euros which includes 64GB storage and the keyboard cover. Perhaps for that price we can excuse the poorly written PR?

MSI S100 10-inch Windows tablet specifications:

  • Windows 8.1
  • Intel Bay Trail-T Z3740D 1.33GHz
  • 2GB RAM
  • 64GB storage
  • Screen” 10.1″ IPS HD 1280×800
  • Camera: Front 2.0MP FF / Rear 2.0MP FF

    WIFI 802.11b/g/n + BT 4.0
  • Micro SD, Micro USB 2.0
    USB 2.0
  • Headphone port [possibly not headset]

  • Weight:595 grams (890 grams with keyboard cover.)

If you’re happy with 1280×800 resolution, which I suspect many people might not be, and want a super-cheap, lightweight 2-in-1 then take a closer look. We’re hoping the quality is better than that of MSI’s English proof-reading.

    Will I be able to use it on 3G. Is there a slot for 3G SIM card?

    The keyboard case looks strangely like a couple of the Chinese tablets I’ve seen with similar specs – like the Cube iWork 10. Maybe a re-badge?
