Chinese tablet makes room for two headphone jacks… for some reason

It’s tough to make an Android tablet stand out these days. It’s hard to compete on sheer horsepower, build quality, or price. So the folks at Shenzhen DNT have taken a completely different approach by building a cheap Android tablet with two headphone jacks.

The tablet also has a Telechips TCC8902 chip that’s been overclocked to run at 1 GHz (instead of the usual 720 MHz). It has an 800 x 480 pixel resistive multitouch display, 256MB of RAM, and runs Google Android 2.2. There’s a micro SD card slot, USB port, and HDMI port on the back… and two headphone jacks, which I suppose can come in handy if you want to watch a movie with a friend on an airplane.

Shanzai.com reports the tablet will run about $140, although it’s not clear if it will be made available outside of China.

    Makes sense. Here in n China, “sweetheart” adapters -jack splitters that allow two people to plug into the same device- are common accessories that sellers toss in DAP or PMP bundles, especially when buying online.

    Then again, if you really want to show the immediate world you’re a couple or BFF, it’s more common to share the same pair of earphones and listen in one-channel sound.

    Or… in some price sensitive markets you can see people gathered around the same music player… often a phone… some of these devices aren’t just peoples first PC/phones.. they’re their first camera, music player etc.

    This just means 2 people can enjoy the same small screen media content more easily.

    They killed it with the netbook processor and win 7 Home Premium. There is a reason why netbooks have 7 starter, it requires about 50% less of your total system to run it, all of these tabs or slates coming with win 7 Home Premium pretty much are DOA. At the price of 799 as well its almost comical that the company would expect these to sell, Toshiba puts out a Portege R705-P35 and can be found at Best Buy for 779.99. If touch is really what you want check out HP’s tm2-2150us which can be found on BBY.com These are both super light weight laptops with way more going for them at about the same price. I’m not trying to hijack this thread but i feel these are valid considering they can fill the same shoes as a tab or slate.
