TVB Tech Alert: FCC Vets Android Tablets

December 14, 2010
CreativeTabletsCYBERSPACE: Several gear sites are reporting that a new 10-inch tablet computer is making the rounds at the Federal Communications Commission. GizmoCrunch says the new Creative ZiiO Android tablet has been approved by the commission for the U.S. market.

Singapore-based Creative unveiled 7- and 10-inch ZiiO tablets last month, both equipped with apt-X for optimized Bluetooth audio. Both come in 8 and 16 GB and run on Google’s Android operating system. Both support several audio and video formats, and feature HD video-out. Enhanced versions of each model can find your car in a crowded parking lot and tune in local FM radio stations.

Manufacturer suggested retail prices run from S$359 (US$276) for the 8 GB 7-incher, to S$459 (US$353) for the 16 GB 10-incher.
