CES Count the Tablets 24-29: The Kneehigh Five


LAS VEGAS - Continuing our “Count the Tablets” coverage of CES, we bring you have five more, bringing to 29 so far. These five were from Kneehigh Technologies, another company from the Shenzhen district in China. Like most of the other companies in the Shenzhen area of CES, Kneehigh wouldn’t give us any specs on the devices.

They would tell us that they run Android, but we have to take their word on that as none of them were turned on. We don’t know which version of Android they run.

It’s hard to tell from the photographs, but four of the devices have three buttons on the bottom. The center one on each tablet has a home icon, but the other two buttons are different on three of the four. The device on the left in the photo below has arrows on either side of the home button, one pointing up, the other pointing down.

The device on the left in the photo below has arrow keys pointing to the left and right. In the other two devices, the left button has lines that may represent an index or maybe a button for pulling up a text editor. The middle button is the home button, and the button on the right is labeled with a refresh symbol.

Stay tuned for many, many more tablets direct from CES.

Jeez. What crap. I’m sure a booth at CES, can’t be cheap, but c’mon, they couldn’t even turn them on? What a joke. It’s good to confirm the low opinion these manufacturers have of American consumers, and to confirm that the Chinese still mostly design cheap junk.
I’m sorry you guys had to waste your time like this.


Seriously? You don’t know what the button with lines is? It’s a menu button. The “refresh” button is a go back button. Standard stuff on Android


How can anyone be sure that Kneehigh has created anything more than plastic cases with screens in them?  These “tablets” should not even be counted.

Nah. They have to be counted since the companies claim they are real devices that will ship “real soon now.” If they would just admit they are prototypes of possible products, then MacObserver could pass them by. Or put them in a prototype count instead of a tablet count.
