Creative ZiiO – Android Tablet
Yes that’s right another tablet for you. Our close friends from Creative’s turn this time to have a go at the Android powered touchscreen iPad rival and have unveiled them today in two sizes. Creative products in my opinion are always of a high standard so they could be a real competitor in this new market.
Available in 7” and 10” screen sizes and storage capacities, powered by Android 2.1 will also have front facing cameras presumably for video calling/skype etc built in microphones and Full Wi-Fi connectivity. The touchscreens however are resistive which are never the best so it’s definitely worth having a go on one or reading the reviews when they’re available to see how responsive they are. The tablets wioll also sport Bluetooth, an accelerometer and a microSD slot for memory expansion.
Being Creative, the audio quality has obviously been given some care and attention. With X-Fi Crystalizer and X-Fi Expand from Creative, the ZiiO will certainly pack a good punch when it comes to it’s audio output whether from mp3 or video playback to sound from the apps or web.
The 8GB 7” model starts at £199.99 and the 16GB goes up to £219.99. The 10” starts at £249.99 for the 8GB and £369.99 for the 16GB model. The Creative ZiiO will be available on shelves just in time for Christmas.
