World's First Transparent-Screen Tablet Launched

WASHINGTON: Grippity has reportedly unveiled what is touted to be the first-ever 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.
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 report said that the price of the Grippity tablet isn't clear yet but users can pay 235 dollars to reserve a slate for delivery by October 24 and early birds can pre-order the tablet for 159 dollars.
