Transparent dual-side operable tablet launched

Grippity has unveiled the world’s first transparent dual-side operable tablet.

The tablet features a semi-transparent 7-inch 800 x 480 display and is expected to hit the shelves by next fall, ANI reported.

According to Discovery News, the tablet’s both front and rear panels support capacitive multi-touch input and run on a Cortex A8 processor and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with 4GB storage that can be extended to 32 GB.

The Grippity tablet supports both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and also comes with IR blaster that allows it to function as a remote control.

Grippity creator Jacob Eichbaum claimed that the tablet’s partially translucent display makes it easier for users to type via a touchscreen keyboard and since both panels support touch, all 10 fingers can be used to type rather than just two.

Recently, Samsung also patented a technology for a transparent touchscreen that would allow users to control the device from both the sides.

The price of the Grippity tablet isn’t clear yet but users can pay $235 to reserve a slate for delivery by October 24 and early birds can pre-order the tablet for $159.
