MSI, following suit of other hardware manufacturers this year, has released a new budget 7-inch class Android tablet that will cost roughly 129 euros ($172 USD). Named Enjoy 71, the new tablet is no slouch when it comes to performance while running Ice Cream Sandwich.
Under the hood, the Enjoy 71 sports a dual-core 1.5GHz ARM Cortex M9 8726 processor, Mali-400 GPU, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. A micro SD slot supporting up to 32GB cards, 2MP rear and 0.3MP front cameras, USB and HDMI ports round out the features.
The display is a 1024 x 600 IPS type that is on par with the Nexus 7. A 3200mAh battery gives the device a decent run-time as well as keeping things light weight. Unlike other cheap 7-inch tablets, the Enjoy 71 is housed in a metal frame. No information has been released on when the tablet will be available in the US.
