Next to the mid-range tablet Primo 81, MSI also announced a low-end 7-inch Android tablet, namely the Primo 73. Despite its entry level hardware the new tablet has an attractive design with a metal unibody back and a piano black bezel made of plastic around the multitouch capacitive display. 

The MSI Primo 73 is now official, the product page on showing the following technical specifications:

  • Processor: dual-core Allwinner A20 at 1 GHz with Mali 400-MP2 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB of RAM; 16 GB of ROM and microSD slot
  • Display: 7-inch IPS capacitive multitouch with 1,024X600 pixels
  • Cameras: 0.3 MP front, 2 MP back

  • Operating system: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
  • Battery: 3,000 mAh

Unfortunately, MSI claims the specifications above may change without notice and there is no official information on pricing and availability yet. Considering the specs of this tablet, a price between $100 and $140 should be expected.

Just like the Primo 81, the MSI Primo 73 should be available in stores and online in November.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
