While China is better known for creating imitations and manufacturing products for other companies, once in awhile they’ll come up with something original – like the EKing T9 tablet. Created by Shenzhen Guangxuntong Communication Technology, the EKing T is said to be the “world’s thinnest tablet PC” but is it really?
The company has released some sleek looking press shots of the device and details of its specs but it didn’t mention the dimensions of the tablet; which is pretty odd considering they’re marketing it as a skinny device. Fortunately the tablet has some pretty impressive specs that will draw attention to the device regardless of how thin it is.
The EKing T9 will feature a 9.7″ IPS capacitive touchscreen display, an Intel Z670 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of memory, rear and front facing cameras. The tablet is also claimed to be compatible with up to five operating systems: Windows 7, Windows 8, Android, Meego and Ubuntu. It seems pretty dubious to brag about being able to support Windows 8 since the operating system is not even close to completion (although Microsoft has mentioned that if your PC runs Windows 7, it can run Windows 8) but running the other operating systems shouldn’t be a problem.
No word on pricing or launch date, but we’ll keep you posted.
