Creative to reveal "Zii Android mobile phone" at Zii Summit next month

Zii_summit

Following last week's announcement of its ZMS-08 media processor for low-power handheld devices, capable of decoding Blu-Ray quality 1080p video, Creative is set to show off a range of OEM-ready devices powered by Zii technology at the Zii Summit 2009 conference in China on the 1st and 2nd of December.

Apart from the MediaBook revealed earlier this month, the most interesting devices to be shown include a touch tablet PC and a Zii-optimized Android mobile phone platform. Based on information on the Zii Summit website, Creative will demonstrate a handset running Android powered by their ZMS-05 processor. The advantages of this should include more processing power for the Android OS and its applications, as the ZMS-05 is a multi-core chip with dual ARM processor cores, seamless OpenGL ES 3D graphics, and 1080p high definition video playback/output.

The thought of an Android smartphone having such capabilities is a very exciting prospect, but we'll have to wait and see exactly what the Zii-powered phone can do and whether there are any compromises to achieve it. We will bring you the latest developments as they happen. Bring on December!
