Creative's 7-inch Android Tablet Now On Sale

Announced last month, the Creative ZiiO packs a 7-inch 480x800 display, Android, a ZiiLabs ZMS-08 processor, up to 16GB of storage, a front-facing camera, mini-USB support and room for up to 32GB of storage via MicroSD.

Unfortunately, it's running Android 2.1, and there's no word on when we can expect an update to 2.2 (Froyo) or, dare we suggest, 2.3 (Gingerbread). Still, at $249 (for the 8GB, 16GB will cost you $269), it's a bit cheaper than the Galaxy Tab.

No word on the 10-inch ZiiO that Creative announced around the same time (creatively called the ZiiO 10) but we're sure it's not far behind. Nothing on pricing for it either, but we'll keep you posted.

Click through to Creative if you're interested in purchasing.

  • Whoa, it's got MKV support! It's got us anime fans drooling here
  • Android 2.1??? This should be filed under archives!
  • Archos 70. $275, Android 2.2 (flash player 10.1 coming soon with full hardware acceleration), great video support, Android market hack, and yes you can even find players on the Android Market that plats MKV.

    I own one and I'm real happy with it, but until this Creative gets 2.2, I won't be impressed.
