Unfortunately the headphone jack does not support both mic and headphones since it only has the normal headphone jack and not the one with the extra pin to support both. This is a problem with alot of tablets and mostly only the 3g type tablets that are on cell carriers seem to support the square reader properly. I would love to use my square reader on my Touchpad unfortunately the hardware just does not support since they wanted to save a buck or so on manufacturing costs.

I was under the impression that it actually accepts the 3 ring jack headphone/microphone style that is needed for the card reader to work.

Here is a guy who confirmed it:

Could this not be working due to the fact that inserting a jack doesn't shut the sound of in the alpha build?

Did an update to the 2.1 alpha which is awesome. However still no support for the credit card reader. Anybody had luck inserting a microphone and using it through the jack on the touchpad running the alpha builds?

It looks to me that even with a mic+stereo plugged in, CM7 is still using the internal mic.
Specs confirm that the TouchPad's jack works with mic+stereo http://h18000.www1.h...na/14077_na.PDF

If we can get a few people to test this and confirm that it's not turning off the internal mic and switching to the external, we should be able to add it to the list of issues.

I am glad someone is seeing this important enough. I hope to get the card reader running. If we can just make sure dalingrin knows about it, I truly believe the guy can do magic.

Just tried it. The internal mic doesn't turn off and the exernal one doesn't work.

Yep, threw it out there and it seems that it has been accepted as an official issue. I would think it could get better priority, since I assume no external microphones can be used either for apps like skype at this point.
