Review Creative ZiiO 7" Multimedia Tablet

 

7 inch entertainer. Creative launches entertainment tablets for little money with its ZiiO range. Despite the low price, the tablets are to be suitable for rendering HD media. In any case, a 1 GHz CPU does its job inside the small devices.

Comfortable to hold, Built-in webcam, HD rendering, Connecting to TV, Wireless connection with speakers, Fast notes via stylus (no text detection), Price, Smooth rendering of HD Ready (720o) videos and the good interaction of ZiiO 7 and TV set. The...

Resistive touchscreen, Old Android version, No FullHD, Handwriting detection not fully developed, A capacitive touchscreen would have been very good for the ZiiO, even if it would have made it more expensive. Also, smooth FullHD rendering would have...

Creative Ziio 7-inch Review

 

Despite it being affordably priced at Rs. 18,000, we would recommend buying the OlivePad VT-100 over the Ziio, as it sports a better 7-inch capacitive touchscreen display, the same Android 2.2 OS, similar hardware, but at a lower price of Rs. 16,000.

Sturdy build quality, HDMI out, Transmits lossless wireless audio, HD 720p playback

Resistive touchscreen, No Android Market support, No GPS

Media players used to just play music, and in general they worked just fine. Then they added video and things continued without much ado. But now the temptation to base a media player on the Android operating system is proving irresistible. The trouble...

Creative ZiiO 7

 

We're at a junction in Android tablets, with last year's announcements coming to market, just we we're getting excited about the next influx of tablets. The Creative ZiiO 7 is a little late to the party, typical of the types of device we saw towards...

Creative Ziio 7-inch review

 

A budget Android tablet that more than justifies its own existence

Price is right ; X-Fi audio ; Easy to use

Poor screen ; It's not pretty ; No Android Market

Tablets are the next big thing! They're brilliant! They're wonderful to use! They're super-convenient and awesome!

Creative ZiiO 7-Inch: Not Really a 'Tablet' - Tech2

 

A good PMP but that's about it.
