LAS VEGAS--MSI was fairly coy about sending out pics of its Android-based tablet, the WinPad 100A. Luckily, the device was on display at the company's CES booth.

The WinPad 100A has a 10.1-inch capacitive touch screen and runs on Android 2.3. It wasn't clear whether the device will be upgradable to Honeycomb when the new OS launches, however.

Other specs and details include an ARM processor, a USB port, Mini-USB, HDMI, an SD card reader, a front-facing camera on the upper-left side, and a headphone jack.

Additionally, the device includes a G-Sensor gravity-detecting device, a GPS locator, an ambient light sensor, and Wi-Fi with a 3G option available.

The WinPad 100A weighs in at 1.6 pounds and is approximately half an inch thick at its thinnest point. MSI claims the 100A can run for 8 to 10 hours on a single battery charge.

The tablet is expected to be released around July for an estimated price of $500.
