$249 Creative ZiiO 7-inch Android Tablet Now Available

I think a few of us got a little excited to learn that Barnes & Noble’s $ 249 NOOKcolor eReader will eventually be receiving an update that would make the device a full-blown Android tablet. Well, today Android fans now have a real option in the same price range– and with slightly better specs. Creative has just launched the new Ziio 7-inch (800×480) Android tablet with 8GB and 16GB (add $20) storage options, a front-facing webcam, Bluetooth 2.1, 802.11g Wi-Fi, microSD expansion slot, accelerometer, 720p video out, X-Fi audio, and support for popular media formats. The only thing missing is the lastest Android “Gingerbread” build and the Android Market. The device currently runs Android 2.1 and leverages Creative’s ZiiStore for apps, games, and eBooks.
