Summary: 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.
Excerpt: The Creative ZiiO 7 is a 7-inch Android tablet with a WVGA touchscreen, front-facing VGA camera (for video calls) and an array of "standard" Android apps like browser, media player, maps, YouTube client and so on. It is available in two versions, one with 8 and the other with 16 GB of built-in storage.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Summary: Creative’s first attempt at a tablet is a major let down. And to top it off they have priced it at a crazy Rs.17,999. If it was priced somewhere around 10K, it would make a decent buy considering it plays full HD movies, WiFi and runs Android. If you only look at the video and audio playback capabilities then it’s a pretty nifty device, especially with the X-Fi sound chip, the audio quality is really good provided you use decent earphones.
Summary: 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.
Pros: 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 device's handiness was also convincing.
Cons: 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 been a nice extra.
