Creative unveils Android-based tablet ‘Ziio’

Creative Technology, a maker of audio products, has launched its new tablet called Ziio that the company says runs on Android version 2.1 Éclair and has normal run-of-the-mill features.

The new tablets come in two configurations – 7 and 10 inch – and include Creative’s X-Fi Crytalizer and the Pure Android Audio application, which can be launched by touching an onscreen button.

Both the 7-inch and the 10-inch ZiiO, powered by Creative’s own ZiiLabs ZMS-08 (based on a 1Ghz ARM processor), have an accelerometer, and a front-facing VGA camera, and can display 1080p video.
