Design de la tablette

The MPMan MID74c tablet shares its design with the older MID7c, the funny thing is there is no label on the front of the tablet to differentiate the models. With almost 13 mm thickness, the tablet shell is made of plastic parts, the tablet construction feels solid in the hands and the assembling is quite good for a tablet of that price. The back of the tablet has a plastic has a brilliant aspect that easily catches fingerprints.

MPMan MID74C boutons et connecteurs

Le MID74C offre 3 boutons matériels sur le dessus de l’appareil: Menu, Home and Back.
Nous retrouvons sur le haut du MID74C un bouton Power et une bascule à deux positions pour le reglage du volume, la partie Vol- est curieusement placée sur la partie droite. The right side the tablet has, from bottom to top: the Power connector, the OTG mini USB connector (which can provide slow charge to the device),a reset button (pinhole), the Mini-HDMI connector, the micro SDcard slot and the stereo ear connector.

There is no Power LED on the tablet. The speaker is located at the back of the device, it seems to be a single speaker, which does not give a very good channel sound separation.
