When the Apple iPad entered the market no one thought it would get so popular. Today instead of a netbook most people would prefer to buy a Tablet. Creative has launched its ZiiO tablet that runs on the Android 2.2 Operating system and is available in 7 inch and 10 inch version.

The ZiiO 10 is an Android based entertainment tablet that has a sleek look. It gives you the freedom to get entertained on the move. This tablet can easily synchronize with your existing wireless devices such as speakers; audio devices etc and take entertainment to every corner of your house without any messy wires.

On the Creative ZiiO you can watch movies, surf the internet, listen to your favourite music and even play games. Packed with Creative’s Bluetooth connectivity and X-Fi the ZiiO can easily connect with other devices such as creative wireless speakers and using the audio boosting technologies ( which creative is already pioneer in) takes the audio quality to a much higher levels.

Since the ZiiO tablet comes loaded with the Android 2.2 OS the Google services are included by default which means you can easily send emails, synchronize Gmail Contacts, Calendar and also get access to thousands of Android applications that can be easily downloaded and installed.

Apart from the Android Market users also get access to Creative ZiiStore where they can download many applications including games, fun apps and eBooks.  Now here comes the most exciting part. Simply connect the ZiiO tablet to a large screen HDTV using the HDMI Cable and you can instantly enjoy the output on a BIG screen HD TV.


The ZiiO tablet comes with built-in IEEE 802.11 b/g support to surf the internet wherever you go. Another exciting feature is the MicroSD Card Support of up to 32GB. This makes sure that you are never left out of storage space. The MicroSD card is also cheaper and the more you have it the more stuff you can add and the more you get entertained.
