Creative turns to tablets for big-screen PMPs

Resistive touchscreens, WTF?

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Creative is to bring a pair of Android tablets to market next month.

One is a seven-incher, the other a 10in machine with 480 x 800 and 600 x 1024 resolutions, respectively. Both are called the ZiiO and - fail? - both use clunky resistive touchscreen tech. They come bundled with a stylus.

The two run Android 2.1, linked to Creative's own ZiiStore app feed rather than the Android Market. They use Creative's own ZiiLabs ZMS-08 processor, and incorporate both Bluetooth 2.1 and 802.11b.g Wi-Fi.

In addition to Bluetooth A2DP, they do Apt-X audio streaming - another Creative-developed technology. Expect HDMI TV-out too and front-facing 0.3Mp webcams.

Creative ZiiO 10

The tablets are being pitched as "entertainment devices" - big-screen PMPs, basically - and Creative said they were good for five hours' video viewing. The ZiiOs support a broad array of video and audio formats, including AVI, MKV, Flac and Ogg.

Both have Micro SD card slots, but come with a choice of 8GB or 16GB of on-board Flash. Creative is pricing the ZiiO 7 at £200 and £220, respectively, and the 10in tablet at £250 and £270. ®
