The MSI Windad 110W, which has been available in Europe since at least July, has made a surprise appearance at CES this year with the Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

As a refresher, the 10.1-inch 110W includes a 1280x800 resolution display with 2GB RAM, a dual-core AMD Z-01 processor with integrated Radeon HD 6250 graphics and ran Windows 7 Home Premium out of the box. For a tablet, these specs are certainly out of the ordinary, especially when compared amongst the slew of Tegra 2 Android tablet currently in the market.

As a result, we were pleasantly surprised that MSI has fully loaded its 110W tablet with Google’s latest Android software running on an AMD chipset. The video below shows ICS running extremely fluently, complete with auto-rotation and touchscreen gaming.

MSI didn’t say when the WindPad 110W will receive the ICS update, although we expect it to be available for existing users (hopefully) before the end of this year.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
