We had a wonderful chance to sit with MSI India Chief Mr. Eric Kuo ( He is General Manager for India and Executive V.P. for Global Sales, MSI)
Of course, we had a lot to ask about MSI and their business in India, we stuck to a few questions that could summarize the whole outlook.
Mr. Kuo told us that MSI since its 5 years in India has become the top most company for motherboards an VGA cards (graphics cards), They recently added notebooks to their line up and currently stand at number 6 or number 7 in the lineup of notebook manufacturers in India. Their goal is to reach top 3, but currently are focused on the top 5 mark.
Mr. Kuo also told us exclusively that the MSI WindPad will be launched in end of July and beginning of August this year. Pricing he said would be based on the currently available models and their features in comparison to the WindPad.
The MSI tablet Price in India is going to be a Good Price” Said Mr. Kuo
For X Slim vs Macbook Air and other super slip laptops he said that , MSI is constantly upgrading its portfolio and a new variant of the X-Slim Series should be out by the End of this Year.
Wind-Top or the All in One PC , was being considered and later dropped as an idea for the Indian market, simply because MSI feels that they need to build up reputation as a computer manufacturer within notebooks and Tablets before considering other electronic items.
We sprung him a surprise when we asked about the existence of an MSI PHONE, He laughed and replied
Anything can happen at MSI, We have already considered this option two years ago, and have a couple of units at our headquarters which are prototypes. A Mobile device requires a completely different strategy, we may not be ready for it yet”
