In an attempt to not be counted out of the Android tablet game this holiday season, Creative has made their ZiiO 7-inch Android available for purchase now for a mere $250. Creative has been known to make some pretty decent hardware, and at first glance it looks like the ZiiO will fit into that description.
The ZiiO hosts a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen with 800×400 resolution, a Creative ZiiLABS ZMS-08 HD processor (not exactly sure on the speed), 8GB of internal storage or 16GB for a few bucks more, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, Android 2.1, and any color you could think of as long as it’s white. Also, the ZiiO has a front facing camera that you can use with all your bleeding edge tech friends to video chat.
The ZiiO seems to be a pretty attractive device, but if you are looking for a full featured tablet with all the bells and whistles, this probably isn’t it. If you want a decent tablet for a decent price, the ZiiO may fit. We’ll hold out and see what 2011 brings for Android tablets, but if you have money burning a hole in your pocket for one then the ZiiO may be it.
