The Ziio 7” is hard to recommend despite its low price owing to a few critical issues that retard overall usability....

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....

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...

Its a bit hard reviewing the Creative ZiiO- especially after you’ve played with the iPad for almost a year. This resistive-screen Android 2.x based tablet feels outdated by simply reading the specs. But we’ve seen many times before that...

The price is about right for this 7in tablet but you really notice the features and hardware credentials that are sacrificed. Even so, we think the Creative Ziio is a good introduction to tablet computing and one of the better entry-level tablets...

Many companies, otherwise traditional manufacturers of PC components, presented new, atypical product series last year, in an attempt to widen their impact onto the market segments that they’d previously been unheard of. Creative was one of the...

The Creative ZiiO 7in has an attractive price, but it isn't a very good advertisement for Android tablets. You can bypass the on-board app store, but you shouldn't really have to do that to get good quality apps? And the slow processor...

The $250 Creative ZiiO 7" Entertainment Tablet is a designed for media lovers, and though the price is right, the execution isn't. Buy it...

Without YouTube or Flash or support or any DRM-protected audio/video media, I am tempted to ask whether or not ZiiO should even be called an "Entertainment Tablet." Then again, most of my disappointment here is diffused by the undeniably attractive...

The Creative Ziio 7 is one of just a few big-name tablets to arrive ahead of the Android 2.3 Gingerbread and 3.0 Honeycomb waves of devices set to square up to the iPad 2 later this year. This tablet runs the Android 2.1 operating system,...

Creative has waited before taking its first leap into the tablet market, but has entered with 7-inch and 10-inch screen sizes it’s billing as ‘entertainment devices,’ with enticing features to make it appeal to audiophiles. At a...

Fine for playing back ripped music and video, but design flaws and technical limitations hold it back elsewhere...

The Creative ZiiO 7 is a device that seems to be trying too hard to be a jack of all trades — and unfortunately ends up being merely mediocre at all of them. If you're absolutely desperate for a tablet, it might do, in a pinch; but the...

If it was not obvious by now, the Creative ZiiO 7 is definitely not one of your typical 'general purpose' tablets you are likely to find in the myraid of similar devices currently flooding the retail market in waves. At the very least, don't...

The Creative ZiiO 7" definitely doesn't belong to the verified "iPad Killers". But it's not trying to, either. All the same, you can get two Creative ZiiO 7"s with an 8 GB memory for the price of one iPad. In return, the Creative ZiiO 7" is...

The Creative ZiiO is not an iPad. You cannot compare it to an iPad, period. While it has a lower quality screen, cheaper material, front camera only, resistive screen, and lack of intuitiveness, the ZiiO is highly affordable and excels in the audio...

The Creative Ziio does look rather limited when compared to some of its more ambitious tablet rivals – indeed, the refusal to provide access to the Android Market certainly seems like a rather short-sighted. But if you simply think of it as a...

Tablets are the next big thing! They're brilliant! They're wonderful to use! They're super-convenient and awesome!That's what everybody is saying, isn't it? But where are all these brilliant devices that everyone's been squawking...

You know what, I think we should leave it there. On a positive or I’m only going to be dragged back into slaughtering this device. There are so many flaws in the software it’s an easy conclusion to come to. If you want something that will...
