Creative’s 7-Inch Android 2.1-based tablet, the ZiiO, is now available for purchase, dropping itself right in the middle of the pack. While it might not be as powerful and feature-rich as the Galaxy Tab, it’s definitely worth a little extra money over the likes of an Augen or Sylvania tablet. The $250 price tag has our interest piqued, considering there are no contracts to deal with.
In terms of hardware, the ZiiO features a 7-inch screen running at 800×400 resolution, 8GB internal memory, a front-facing camera and support for Bluetooth and WiFi. It remains to be seen how fast the Creative ZiiLABS ZMS-08 HD processor is but we don’t expect it to perform along the lines of a Hummingbird or Tegra 2.
Anyone considering asking Santa for a tablet like this?
