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.
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.
Summary: 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 is, unless it's done properly, that can cause more problems than it solves. Path of most resistance Creative's Ziio 7 illustrates the point.
Conclusion: Creative ha creado un producto interesante pero con un precio muy elevado . El segmento en el que está enfocado dispone de tablets más económicos, con modelos que rondan los 180 euros con pantallas capacitivas y las mismas funcionalidades que el modelo ZiiO 7. El problema de la lentitud del menú principal ofrece una mala primera impresión y, sin embargo, una vez en aplicaciones y menús se desenvuelve de manera muy interesante.
