MSI's Slatebook tablet PC is will hit the U.S. and Europe markets in the third quarter of 2010 through local telecom carrier cooperation according to company chairman Joseph Hsu.

Although the iPad has been selling very well in all of the markets it has been released in, Hsu believes 2011 is when the tablet market will really start to take off. Hsu also noted that the netbook demand is dropping rapidly in many market and said that only 2-3 new models will be launched each year for the foreseeable future.
