Kenwood said it will ship in June a 7-inch WiFi tablet announced in January that is intended as a “second” screen for the rear seat when used with either of two Kenwood WiFi Connected Car Radios.
The tablet works over a WiFi networked connection to the Kenwood DNN 990HD and DNN 770HD to share movies, videos and photos between devices or between a connected smartphone. It is not offered as a standard tablet, although it is an Android tablet that may be used outside of the car as it runs on a USB powered rechargeable battery.
Kenwood says its LZ-T700 tablet gives new meaning to the term “dual zone,” allowing the kids in the back to view apps while mom or dad listens to music or navigates to a destination.
First unveiled at CES in January, the tablet uses an XVGA capacitive screen (for multi-touch swipe and zoom). Kids may download select apps to the device from Google Play. It has a mounting bracket on the back to affix to a headrest.
Suggested retail price for the tablet is an expected estimated price of $400.
It was originally expected to ship this month.
