Chinese manufacturers are better known for producing cheap knock-offs of other companies’ products. That’s a rather undeserved reputation – these same manufacturers are the ones who usually make the products of such companies like Acer, Apple, and others. This is why you sometimes see an original product coming out of the morass.
The Eking T9 tablet is an example of these original creations. Produced by Shenzhen Guangxuntong Communication Technology, the tablet is supposed to be the world’s thinnest tablet. At least, that’s what the company claims.
All we know about it is the device’s specs and some press shots that make it look pretty good. However, we don’t have any official word on the measurements to say if it really is the thinnest. However, thin or not, it still has some pretty interesting specs to back it up and make it a good potential buy.
First of all, the Eking T9 packs a 9.7″ IPS capacitive touchscreen display. This is backed by a 1.5 GHz Intel Z670 CPU, which is backed by 2GB of memory. It will also feature rear and front facing cameras. One of the big claims of the tablet is that it will work for up to five operating systems: Windows 7, Windows 8, Android, Meego and Ubuntu.
That’s a pretty bold claim, with Windows 8 not being released yet, but with Android compatibility, you’re sure to have a use for this tablet.
So when does this product come out? Well, it’s still up in the air. Expect it to come out within the year though.
